Belotero Hydro is one of many dermal fillers in the Belotero product range. It provides deep hydration that allows skin to appear invigorated and youthful. Through superficial microinjections, this entry-level injectable gel rejuvenates the skin and leaves long-lasting moisturization for optimal skin maintenance. With a special formula consisting of glycerol and hyaluronic acid, this dermal injection provides targeted rehydration that adds elasticity and radiance to the skin. Furthermore, this cosmetic injectable can help reduce the appearance of the early signs of aging and prevent further damage to the skin.
What Belotero Hydro is formulated to do
This injectable solution is formulated to moisturize the skin on a deep level and improve skin health by improving elasticity. Belotero Hydro’s active ingredients are 18mg/ml of hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin and glycerol. The hyaluronic acid is manufactured via Dynamic Cross-Linking Technology, which has 2 added phases compared to standard cross-linking technology. These extra phases allow the gel to crosslink twice and fill out any gaps with additional non-crosslinked molecules. Overall, this process creates cohesive, malleable gel that integrates seamlessly within the dermis and is suitable for all skin types. Upon injection, this filler can diminish the signs of aging and can help improve the look of sun spots and dull, dehydrated skin. It can also volumize skin and fix the color and tone in the treated areas.
Belotero Hydro is manufactured by Merz Aesthetics. This product was introduced in April 2014.
This product is manufactured in Europe.
