Belotero Schaumburg, Naperville, Chicago
Our skin is made up of two main layers, the dermis and the epidermis. The dermis is the structural component of our skin, which contains blood vessels, hair follicles, and nerves. The primary component of this layer is collagen, which gives support and elasticity to the skin. The dermis is covered by the epidermis, which forms a protective barrier over the under-layer, keeping moisture in and acting as a barrier to the environment.
As we age, we produce less collagen and the collagen that remains is less effective. Additionally, the epidermis becomes thinner and is not able to retain moisture as easily as it once did. This is why we see an increase in lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead as we get older.
Dermal Fillers In Chicago
There are different types of dermal fillers, but they all produce similar results. These products are designed to plump up the area around the injection site, eliminating fine lines and wrinkles and making the skin appear more youthful. There are subtle differences in the ingredients they contain and certain products are more suited to particular applications.
The Belotero® Difference
Belotero is a new advancement in the world of dermal fillers. This FDA approved injectable gel is made from non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid. It is designed to temporarily correct furrows, lines, wrinkles, and depressions in the skin. This unique formula integrates evenly with your own tissue and is perfected for use in the elimination of fine lines.
The active ingredient in Belotero is given its exceptional elasticity by the use of specialized cohesive polydensified matrix (CPM) technology. The utilization of CPM allows clients to see results within a few hours, with patients often requiring only one treatment.
