What is Belotero?Belotero has been designed from biofermentation hyaluronic
acid, a substance naturally present in our body; which the makers claim
makes it safe and completely biocompatible, as well as wholly
How is it made?It is created using Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM)
technology, a unique process which gives Belotero hylauronic acid
unusual elasticity; (this technolology adds to its "mono-phasic"
Belotero therefore guarantees a considerably better result
from the first hours after the injection and over the initial months, in
terms of increased volume and wrinkle filling compared to "biphasic"
Belotero is prepared from non-animal, hyaluronic acid NaHA
by a patented dynamic reticulation process. The unique polydensified
cohesive structure of Belotero consists of a cohesive gel which is easy
to inject through a small diameter needle.
Reported side effectsTransient erythema (redness), swelling, pain, itching,
discoloration or tenderness at the implant site. Typically resolution is
spontaneous, within one or two days after injection into the skin, and
within a week after injection into the lips.
The manufacturers state that there is no risk of granulomas
and no risk of 'lump effect' - although the product may be too new to
identify these rare reactions which can occur with other hyaluronic acid
