Collagen is an important component of the skin that keeps it firm and elastic. However, with age, natural collagen production is reduced, which causes signs of aging to appear. After injection, RADIESSE® prompts your body to produce more collagen and therefore rejuvenate your look. RADIESSE® is used to treat the following signs of aging: - Nasolabial folds – lines between your nose and the corner of your mouth - Marionette lines – the lines framing your mouth - Hollow cheeks - Puffy bags underneath your eyes.
BELOTERO® is a dermal filler that is utilized to smooth out moderate to severe facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds around the lips and mouth. Made of hyaluronic acid (HA), it has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft correction of deep lines such as nasolabial folds as well as soft areas such as vertical lip lines.
