BELOTERO® Revive Common Questions
What is BELOTERO® Revive?
BELOTERO® Revive is an injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It is indicated to revitalise early onset sun damaged facial skin. Photodamage or sun damage can be characterised by dehydration, loss of elasticity and firmness, and presence of superficial fine lines.
What is early onset sun damage?
Early onset sun damage or photo damage is premature signs of ageing due to ongoing exposure to the sun or harmful light rays. Exposure can start in the first decade without visible signs on the skin. As the exposure continues, early signs such as tanning, freckles and sunspots emerge. Other signs of sun damage can be seen by the development of fine lines, dryness, uneven pigmentation and texture as well as loss of elasticity and firmness.
How long will it take to see results?
Your treatment will start to work immediately, hydrating your skin, however optimal results can be seen at 3 months after all initial treatments.
How is BELOTERO® Revive different to other skin boosters on the market?
BELOTERO® Revive unlike most other skin boosters is indicated to revitalise the signs of early onset sun damage, which accounts for approximately 90% of external ageing. As well as this, BELOTERO® Revive also contains an additional ingredient of glycerol, one of the most hydrating substances in the polyalcohol family. This means it creates a lasting moisturising effect, as it promotes water absorption within the skin, resulting in increased hydration, smoothness, elasticity and firmness.
How long do results last?
The duration of BELOTERO® Revive results varies depending on each individual. In some patients BELOTERO® Revive has been seen to last between 6 to 9 months, but there are many factors to consider, such as the structure of your skin, lifestyle and age. It is always best to discuss this with your healthcare practitioner to manage expectations.
How many treatments will I need?
BELOTERO® Revive can be injected under a treatment regimen of 1 to 3 injection sessions depending on your needs. We advise you book a follow up appointment no less than 4 weeks after your first treatment to assess the initial outcome and continue with your treatment plan.

Does the treatment hurt?

Everybody will have different sensitivities to injections and your aesthetic practitioner will advise you on how best to manage any discomfort.
