How does Belotero Basic with Lidocaine work?
Belotero is manufactured using a special technique implementing Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM) technology. It is this method which creates the unique elasticity and polydensified properties in Belotero which allows it to be so compatible with the human body.
Belotero gel gives an extremely effective result straight away following injection into the medium to deep layers of the skin dermis, and continues to work over the subsequent weeks and months. It’s volume increasing and filling properties smooth out deeper wrinkles, and facial defects resulting from scarring and injury.
The added Lidocaine in Belotero Basic helps make the treatment more comfortable and less painful for the patient. Lidocaine acts as an anaesthetic which has a fast onset, which provides quick numbness, making the whole treatment experience for the patient as pleasant as possible.
Ingredients & Concentration:
Biofermented non animal hyaluronic acid (22.5mg/ml) in a 27G needle.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally safe to use as it is found inside the body, making it compatible to use.
What are the associated side effects with Belotero Basic with Lidocaine?
Some swelling and redness may occur, as well as itchiness and pain. Tenderness at the site of injection is common too. Side effects usually disappear after a few days and can take up to a week for lip injections.
Please note there should be no lumps produced from the use of Belotero Basic. However due to this product being fairly new on the market, it is too early to say whether such rare reactions may occur as in other hyaluronic acid fillers.
