Dark circles are often caused by a tear trough abnormality, which means you have less fatty tissue under your eyes. BELOTERO® by MERZ AESTHETICS can
- Plump thin under-eye tissue
- Eliminate dark circles
- Reduce hollow appearances
- Fill in lines and wrinkles
- Abate under-eye aging
- Prevent bluish under-eye hue
BELOTERO® is a natural anti-aging remedy. This dermal filler is made from hyaluronic acid found in sugar, or HA. Your skin already has HA in it, but it diminishes over time, which is why your skin loses elasticity and volume as you age. Hyaluronic acid binds with water to plump the skin and make it look and feel smooth and silky.
When injected under the eyes, HA creates the illusion of thicker fat pads. This, in turn, alleviates the dark circles you’ve spent so much money on cosmetics to conceal. The procedure is quick, about 30 minutes, and your recovery time is minimal. BELOTERO® is the best filler to use for dark circles because of how it’s manufactured. Of all the fillers on the market today, BELOTERO® is the only one that doesn’t cause a blue hue under your skin. Remember, the skin under your eyes is thin, so you want a product that won’t discolor it even further.
Prior to your BELOTERO® fill, avoid alcohol, blood-thinning agents and OTC pain medication, such as aspirin and ibuprofen, for a few days. On treatment day, we will numb the under-eye area with a topical painkiller, although the procedure is relatively painless. Once we’ve marked the injection points, we will use a small needle to push BELOTERO® underneath your eyes to fill the area. Naturally, your skin will be cleansed and disinfected appropriately prior to the injections to prevent infection. Each injection lays the product under your skin evenly to create a smooth appearance. On average, you can expect about three to five injections per eye. We will softly massage the area after the procedure is complete, and we recommend you avoid intensive exercise for 24 hours to ensure the fill stays in place. Ice will sooth any bruising, swelling or discomfort, but those common side effects should be minimal.
Patients who opt for a BELOTERO® fill to reduce their under-eye dark circles report excellent results that last anywhere from nine months to a year. Let us restore your under-eye skin and confidence with a BELOTERO® fill to finally get rid of those pesky dark circles.
