Merz Launches New Belotero® Revive Dermal Filler
The new hyaluronic acid (HA) filler works beneath the skin to improve skin hydration, reduce redness and roughness and minimize the appearance of fine lines.
Merz, a global leader in medical aesthetics, today announced the launch of Belotero® Revive, a dermal filler product containing a unique combination of hyaluronic acid (HA) and glycerol, designed to improve hydration, elasticity and firmness of the skin and to address the appearance of fine lines. 1,2 The newest addition to the Belotero® dermal filler range, Belotero® Revive was designed to meet the unique needs of today’s aesthetic patients. Modern consumers are especially focused on skin quality and on minimizing early signs of aging, and they value skincare and aesthetic solutions that deliver natural-looking results – the so-called “no-filter” look.
“We continue to see a growing interest in effective, high quality injectable treatments from a new generation of aesthetic patients, due in part to the influence of social media and other digital channels,” stated Prof. Dr. Martina Kerscher, Professor of Dermatology, University of Hamburg and lead author of the BELOVE study. “Strong scientific research forms the basis for this new dermal injectable and our study results show that treatment with this beauty booster is a an effective way to provide direct skin hydration and increase skin smoothness, giving our patients beautiful, natural-looking results.” 3,4
The new Belotero® Revive campaign encourages consumers to “Show off the best version of yourself, without a filter!” The campaign hints playfully at the influence of the digital sphere on real-life moments and is designed to speak to the growing acceptance of aesthetic medicine in different age groups, while encouraging female consumers to make choices that bring out their own individual and natural beauty.
“Customer research and market trends make it clear that a new generation of patients is increasingly open to aesthetic medicine and actively looking for options to treat the first visible signs of aging,” stated Philip Burchard, CEO of Merz. “At Merz, we have a strong focus on researching and developing innovative and effective solutions that can be used to address both specific patient needs and new market trends in medical aesthetics. With Belotero® Revive, we are proud to be able to provide aesthetic physicians with a new dermal injectable that can be used for both early intervention and beautification, to help meet the unique needs of individual patients.”
Belotero® Revive is now available in selected countries in Europe and Latin America, with additional markets to be added later this year. For more details, please visit BeloteroRevive.com or follow @Merz_Aesthetics on Instagram.
