There are a number of different ways to eliminate the early signs of aging and provide patients with a youthful and beautiful look they desire. Over the course of time, advances in treatments have lead to many different innovations that gives patients more options to choose from.

Among these innovations is the filler known as Belotero. This injectable can help reduce fine lines around the mouth and lips. However, with a few dermal fillers, people have been experiencing the Tyndall effect. But, it has been identified that Belotero is one such dermal filler that is less likely to cause the Tyndall effect.

What is Belotero?

Belotero is the FDA-approved hyaluronic acid based injectable filler that reduces fine lines and wrinkles around the jaw, mouth, and lip area of your face. It can help add volume to your face, making it look plump and supple.

Hyaluronic acid is a component found in our body that decreases with age; therefore, the injectable filler is safe and effective. However, Belotero is different from other dermal fillers because it is a light filler that consists of a unique mixture.

This unique mixture ensures that your face does not look lumpy and uneven. Most importantly, the procedure ensures that you do not encounter the Tyndall effect.

What Is the Tyndall Effect?

The Tyndall effect is actually a phenomenon in physics in which light rays scatter when they pass through a clear solution in which small particles are suspended. As the light rays scatter, it emits a light blue color.

Now on the skin, when dermal fillers are used, they are a solution of suspended particles which results in a bluish tinge on your skin when you come in contact with light. However, in the case of Belotero, the gel is not a suspension of particles and so there is no possibility of the Tyndall effect taking place.

The Belotero Treatment

Once the appropriate filler type is chosen, your doctor will disinfect your skin and prepare it to receive the injection. After this the doctor will carefully inject using a thin needle or cannula filled with the gel solution, directly on to the target areas.

The number of injections will vary from person to person based on each person’s unique requirements. After the injection, you may experience some swelling, itching, and skin redness. These are temporary, however, and will subside in about a week. The recovery time is minimal and the procedure takes just a few minutes to complete. The results can be seen almost instantly.

Belotero has all the positive effects of a good dermal filler with lower risk of the Tyndall effect. This makes Belotero one of the best fillers available.
