Belotero Intense with Lidocaine is made up of cross-linked sodium hyaluronate at 25.5mg/ml and a phosphate buffer of pH7 SQP. Don?t let the seemingly lacking number of ingredients fool you, as this is all that is needed for the product to do its job. Merz Aesthetics has long realized that the way to healthy, younger-looking skin is to achieve that perfect balance of elasticity and cohesivity, and with Belotero Intense with Lidocaine, they?ve made it so that not only will it give patients that optimal level of elasticity, but is also geared towards the more heavy-duty jobs of clearing out the deeper lines on the face. The lidocaine in the formulation also works wonders, ensuring that the patient is not too uncomfortable during the process of injection. The efficacy of the formulation is also well-documented as a study of 149 patients was done and by using the Investigator assessed Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale, and 89.9% of patients achieved said improvement immediately post-injection.
