Belotero Revive is an injectable, skin-revitalising treatment that hydrates and rejuvenates the skin without adding any unwanted bulk. This treatment addresses the early signs of sun damage as it rehydrates the skin, improves firmness and suppleness, and reduces the roughness of the skin. It is a subcutaneous treatment whereby moisture is injected directly into the skin to give it instant hydration. It gives a natural-looking boost to your skin and brings back your natural glow. Belotero Revive is made up of two powerful ingredients, Hyaluronic acid and Glycerol. Hyaluronic acid is a vital component of healthy skin which offers rejuvenating qualities when it is injected.
What does early onset photo damage mean for your skin?
Early onset photo damage manifests itself as premature signs of ageing resulting from exposure to the harmful light rays of the sun. Early stages of damage to the skin from such exposure often takes place without presenting any visible signs. However, with continued exposure, early signs of damage such as freckles and sunspots begin to emerge. Later signs of sun damage are evidenced by the development of dryness, uneven skin pigmentation and texture, the emergence of fine lines, and ultimately the loss of elasticity and firmness in the skin.
What takes place during the Belotero Revive treatment?
Unlike the simple but often ineffective process of applying a skin cream, therapists will ฉีด Revive directly beneath the skin in order to provide a direct form of hydration through the combination of Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerol. This treatment creates a moisturising effect on the skin that is lasting. Around half an hour prior to the injection a numbing cream is applied to your skin. After your skin is numb, tiny injections of Belotero Revive are administered to the area which is to be treated. At first small bumps may appear in the injected area, but these will settle down within a few hours. A follow-up treatment is recommended to be given a month later, and this course of treatment can be repeated every six months.
How often should the treatment be repeated?
The recommended treatment requires two or three sessions with around a month’s separation between each. The improvements in skin hydration and even pigmentation may last anywhere up to nine months, but this varies from one individual to another and is dependent on a number of factors.
What about side effects?
The side effects mirror those of other injection treatments. You may experience a little redness, sensitivity, numbness, itching or bruising for a few days but not more than a week. It is advisable to not be exposed to intense heat or cold for the fortnight immediately after your treatment. A therapist would be able to advise you and reassure you should you have any concerns.
Our busy and stressful day-to-day lives lead to a loss of vibrancy of the skin, which can make it appear tired and dull. Belotero Revive treatment acts to give your skin increased moisture and you can have the treatment at any time of year. What are you waiting for?
