Besides ensuring the skin a powerful dehydrating effect thanks to its HA-based (20mg/ml) formula, doctors use Merz’s Belotero Soft Lidocaine 1ml for superficial wrinkles, perioral wrinkles, lip commissures, crow's feet, and forehead wrinkles treatment. The manufacturer used Cohesive Polydensidied Matrix technology in all Belotero products which allows better compatibility with the tissue and body, and it is easily injected and distributed evenly through the treated area.
Thanks to the addedLidocaine which acts as a local anesthetic, you can expect more comfort and decreases the pain during the treatment. With a 30g needle, it is injected into the upper dermis, and the results are seen up to 18 months which is significantly longer than with other similar products in the market. Belotero Soft + Lidocaine comes with the typical side effects - redness, swelling, itchiness and tenderness at the site of injection. After a few days or a week, they usually disappear. One more important thing you must know is to avoid any make-up for 12 hours after treatment. Also, you shouldn’t expose treated areas directly to the sunlight, but if you can’t avoid that completely, make sure to put sunscreen on the skin.
