As you age, fine lines will start to appear. Though this is unavoidable, it is treatable. Restylane and Belotero are two solutions that are commonly used to treat and reduce fine lines. They might be different, but they are both dermal fillers that get close to the same results. Each comes with their own benefits that one should understand before deciding which product to use.
Benefits of Belotero
For thousands of individuals, superficial wrinkles and fine lines have been irritating problems. Belotero is a solution for individuals who are tired of fighting the appearance caused by these issues. It is best to think of Belotero as an integrative filler.
Like Restylane, Belotero is a hyaluronic acid based injectable filler. However, there is a significant difference between the two fillers. What makes Belotero different from Restylane is that it has been perfected for use against fine lines. Many experts believe Belotero is better than Restylane for fine line reduction because it is easier to layer. It works very well as a top layer filler and can be used on top of deeper fillers.
Unlike many other types of filler, it provides very subtle results, so it is especially useful for patients who have thin or delicate skin. Since everyone is different, results can vary. On average, the benefits of Belotero can last as long as nine months.
When it comes to versatile hyaluronic gels that are used for fine lines, Belotero is at the top of the list. In time, it could become a strong competitor against all other hyaluronic gels used commonly for lip augmentation.
Benefits of Restylane
Restylane is frequently referred to as the original hyaluronic gel dermal filler. It is smooth, safe and works on eye hollows, lips, folds and wrinkles. Restylane can give you an energetic and youthful appearance almost instantly. Like Belotero, it is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found inside of the body.
Restylane is incredibly versatile dermal filler, and it can enhance the lips and greatly increase fullness. It can be used successfully for chin augmentation, lip augmentation, smoker’s lines, stretch earlobes and vertical cheek lines.
What Solution Is Better?
Restylane and Belotero are both approved by the FDA, and they are used to treat moderate to severe fine lines. They are also both made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural component of the human skin. These fillers form a gel under the skin that makes it plump while filling in your creases and fine lines. The effects of both of these fillers are natural.
It is important to understand that these fillers have different consistencies. When compared to Belotero, Restylane is much softer, and many experts view it as the better choice for delicate work performed around the lips. The consistency of Belotero is much firmer, which makes it an excellent choice for filling the lines that run from the lips to the nose. Belotero can also work better for laugh lines and chin wrinkles.
At the end of the day, both Restylane and Belotero are best for their intended uses. For example, Restylane might be better than Belotero in some situations, and in other situations, the opposite might be true.
