Belotero Revive is an injectable treatment that hydrates and rejuvenates the skin without giving any volume. It treats the early signs of photo damage by rehydrating the skin, improving elasticity and firmness and smoothing superficial fine lines by reducing skin roughness. So if you are looking for a natural-looking boost to your skin and have concerns of premature ageing due to sun damage, this is the treatment for you.
How does it work?
Belotero Revive combines 2 amazing ingredients – Hyaluronic acid and Glycerol. Hyaluronic acid is a key feature of a healthy skin and has been widely proven to rejuvenate the skin when injected. Alongside Hyaluronic acid the combination with Glycerol, creates a lasting moisturising effect on the skin, as it promotes water absorption from the dermis to the surface of the skin, providing moisture from the inside out. It comes in a 1ml syringe which is sufficient for small areas on the face, 2mls will treat the whole of the lower face. Treatments are spaced 4 weeks apart and 1-3 are required.
How long does the treatment last?
The results of improved skin hydration and reduced skin pigmentation last up to 9 months, although this does depend on factors such as the structure of your skin, lifestyle and age.
At this time we would retreat, but depending on how your skin has responded fewer treatments may be required for maintenance.
Are there any side effects?
The side effects are similar to other injection treatments. There may be some redness, tenderness or numbness, itching or bruising that can last up to a week. We advise that you do not have intense heat or cold for 2 weeks following your treatment.
