Has your skin got the post-summer blues? Here’s all you need to know about a new skin-refreshing treatment that’s just arrived in Ireland …
There is such a thing as too much summer sun – when it comes to your skin at least. And as we head into autumn, we’re looking at fast, effective ways of giving our skin a boost. The good news? BELOTERO® Revive, a new skin-boosting treatment designed to target the early signs of sun damage, has arrived in Ireland. No filter – just you.
What’s new and exciting about this injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler? With an innovative combination of hyaluronic acid (HA) and glycerol, BELOTERO® Revive not only improves elasticity and firmness but can also decreases pigmentation and addresses fine lines. Imagine an instant route to increased hydration, smoothness and elasticity – with results that can last between six and nine months.
To find out more, we chatted to Anna Gunning, owner of the Laser & Skin Clinic and the Merz Innovation Partner, who has over 15 years of experience in the Irish skincare industry, to find out why she loves this treatment.
Is BELOTERO® Revive right for me?
“BELOTERO® Revive is suitable for adults of all ages,” says Gunning. “It can be used as an early aesthetic intervention to address early signs of ageing, especially around the eye area or lower face. It’s ideal if you want to improve your skin’s appearance without any dramatic volume changes, or if you have noticed any changes in your skin such as laxity, fine lines, lack of hydration and sun damage. Damage is one of the major causes of premature skin ageing, and can present as brown pigmented areas on your face. Men are also considering treatments to look fresher and to brighten up their skin with minimal downtime.
BELOTERO® Revive treats the early signs of sun damage and ageing, targeting a multitude of skin concerns in one treatment. It rehydrates dry skin, improves elasticity and reduces skin pigmentation and discolouration, often caused by sun exposure.”
What makes BELOTERO® Revive different from other skin boosters?
“BELOTERO® Revive is a injectable hyaluronic acid gel which also contains glycerol, a hydrating agent that is known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It’s the only leading skin booster available with this unique combination. Glycerol can absorb its own weight in water over just three days, which means that, unlike some skin boosters, you’ll usually see results immediately. I feel that BELOTERO® Revive is an excellent introduction to aesthetic treatments.”
And the results?
“BELOTERO® Revive is often a quick, easy treatment applied via injection with multiple tiny injection points – there is little to no downtime, depending on the area being treated, and minimum discomfort. It’s designed to be injected at multiple levels in the skin to encourage plumper, smoother, firmer, more hydrated skin.
BELOTERO® Revive starts to work immediately, and lasts many months. The results are not permanent – over time, hyaluronic acid is naturally degraded – giving you the option to decide if you want further rejuvenation. Most of our patients follow up their course of three treatments after nine months to maintain a fresh, youthful appearance.”
What do your clients say about BELOTERO® Revive?
“The feedback has been positive, and patients are seeing an instant result in hydration and glow to their skin, which is great. The downtime is minimal, which is always a bonus as it settles within a few hours after the treatment. More and more of my patients are now focused on skin quality and on minimising early signs of ageing.”
“One treatment of BELOTERO® Revive costs around €250 for 1 ml or €400 for 2mls if the patient requires more for each session. We recommend a course of three treatments spaced 30 days apart, and offer a ‘buy three get one free’ on BELOTERO® Revive Packages.”
The BELOTERO® range and the BELOTERO® Revive treatment is now available in clinics across Ireland. To find a clinic, and for more information, visit www.belotero.co.uk.
