Facial rejuvenation through the application of botulinum toxin and dermal fillers has become extremely popular in our day and age. These non-invasive procedures allow dermatologists and plastic surgeons to achieve excellent results with minimal downtime for the patient.
The popularity of these procedures has spearhead the innovation of multiple products in the market. However, not all products work the same and some may be ineffective. Therefore, product quality and safety are of highest importance when choosing the right treatment. Merz was one of the first companies to launch an anti-wrinkle moisturizing cream and since then this company has been a pioneer in the field of aesthetic medicine. Merz’s portfolio is one of a kind and it offers some of the highest quality products for facial rejuvenation.
We are extremely proud to offer the following Merz aesthetic products, renowned by patients and practitioners around the world.
Merz offers a safe and effective anti-wrinkle treatment with the use of their botulinum toxin, a product called Xeomin. This product works by relaxing muscles of facial expression to reduce lines of expression and wrinkles on the face, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines and eleven lines. Also, this product works very fast! In fact, patients can see the results in about 24 hours. The effect usually lasts between 3 and 5 months, depending on the depth of the wrinkles and the area where it is applied.
The procedure is done in an office setting the same day of the consultation and requires no anesthesia. Patients can resume their normal activities and see quick results. The procedure is also safe and carries minimal risks of complications. It is normal to experience some swelling and sometimes bruising in the site of the application. These usually last a couple of days and go away without treatment.
The Belotero ® family of dermal fillers
Merz offers an incredible line of dermal fillers that adapt to an individual’s needs. These fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid and are biocompatible with any skin type. They are used to provide volume in areas of the face that deflate with age, such as the cheeks, lower eyelids and the jawline. They are also great for lip contouring and volumization of the cheeks. The rejuvenative effect of these products is quite remarkable.
Belotero Balance: ideal for smoothing wrinkles and reducing the appearance of lines. Used commonly for lip rejuvenation, treatment of marionette lines and elevation of the oral commissures.
Belotero Intense: used for subtle, smooth correction of deeper skin folds and contouring of the lip area. A higher viscosity also makes this filler ideal for the treatment of nasolabial folds.
Belotero Volume: the perfect choice for restoring volume in the face. It is especially popular in the midface area, where it is used to enhance the cheekbones. This has such a nice lifting effect on the cheeks that it may be used as an alternative to a surgical cheek lift. In men, this filler is used to define the jawline and augment the chin.
Like Xeomin, these fillers are applied in an office setting. The combination of Xeomin with fillers allows the physician to achieve a more harmonious result. The full range of Belotero ® products works in tandem with Xeomin to provide natural results in people of every age and skin type.
