What is Belotero Revive?

One of the newest skinboosters available at Harmony Aesthetics Clinic, the Belotero Revive is a next-generation light hyaluronic acid and glycerol injectable with powerful hydrating and rejuvenating qualities. The Belotero Revive is ideal for the early intervention of photodamaged skin – skin damaged by the sun and other signs of ageing.

Belotero Revive can benefit areas of the face that are sunken or dehydrated, such as around the eyes and mouth, cheeks, neck, and even the hands.

The Belotero Revive skinbooster contains two substances, these are:

  • Hyaluronic acid: produced naturally by our skin and effectively retains water within your skin cells, giving your skin a plump and hydrated appearance.
  • Glycerol: found to be one of the most effective humectants in a 2016 study and also works to increase the potency of hyaluronic acid.

How does Belotero Revive work?

The skin comprises three main layers: the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. Within the dermis are three essential elements responsible for a youthful appearance – collagen, elastin fibres, and hyaluronic acid. However, as we age and due to various external factors, such as UV damage from the sun, these naturally occurring components get depleted, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation problems, and dehydrated/dry skin.

With this in mind, the Belotero Revive was designed to penetrate and deliver hyaluronic acid and glycerol through multiple layers of the skin, reaching down into the deep layer of the dermis to replenish the lost stores of hyaluronic acid. Thus providing moisture from the inside out, smoothening the skin, resulting in a firmer and rejuvenated skin appearance while still looking natural.

The hyaluronic acid within Belotero Revive was produced using a special type of technology known as the Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM), giving the hyaluronic acid a highly cohesive and fluid characteristic, allowing it to spread evenly under the skin and not result in bumps commonly seen with other types of injectables post-treatment. Additionally, the unique combination of glycerol with hyaluronic acid has been shown to enhance the potency of hyaluronic acid and improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture.

The Belotero Revive has a double effect; not only does it restore hyaluronic acid, but it also stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen, resulting in the continuous improvement of your skin’s appearance for up to 9 months.

What results can I expect after a Belotero Revive treatment?

You may notice some results immediately after your treatment; your skin will appear plumper and smoother. However, the full extent of your results can only be observed after a few months. This is because the Belotero Revive provides a more natural boost to your skin, and it will take some time for your body to produce collagen naturally.

Immediately following treatment, you may notice some redness, swelling, or bruising at the treatment site. This is completely natural and should self-resolve after a few days.

Depending on your skin condition and treatment area, you can also expect the following after treatment with Belotero Revive:

  • Up to 6 months of increased skin firmness
  • Up to 7 months of improved skin softness
  • Up to 9 months of improved skin hydration
  • Up to 9 months of decreased skin pigmentation

How many treatment sessions are needed with Belotero Revive?

The exact number of sessions required depends on your skin condition and treatment area. Generally, a complete treatment plan for Belotero Revive involves approximately 2-3 sessions with an interval of 1-2 months between sessions. Hyaluronic acid will also be naturally dissolved by our body eventually; hence, to maintain optimal results, you should get retreated once every 6 to 9 months or once the results have worn off.
