The natural signs of aging may be saying more about you than you realize. Have you noticed any wrinkles that remain around your mouth, even after you have stopped smiling, or any small etched-in lines above your lips that used to disappear without makeup? If so, Belotero Balance® may be for you. Belotero Balance® is a prescription injectable hyaluronic acid gel that is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate folds and wrinkles.
Belotero Balance® is also an excellent choice for use under the eyes because it is soft and can be injected more superficially unlike the other hyaluronic acid fillers. It also eliminates the possibility of the Tyndall Effect (a temporary blue-like discoloration) which is common in other hyaluronic acid fillers.
Belotero Balance® is created using the cohesive polydensified matrix process. With this proprietary technology, Belotero Balance® evenly and completely blends into your skin, providing a natural, finished look. Belotero Balance® feels natural to the touch, and you maintain normal movement and facial expressions.
Benefits of Belotero Balance®
While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, Belotero Balance® takes a more targeted approach, specifically treating etched-in lines and wrinkles, such as vertical lip lines.
The results of treatment with Belotero Balance® are incredibly natural looking. Belotero Balance® is a flexible, smooth, cohesive gel which binds with water to blend in naturally with the skin.
The injection procedure is done on an outpatient basis and rarely takes more than 30 minutes after the initial consultation. Most patients only experience minor discomfort during the procedure, and there is no real downtime involved.
How long does Belotero Balance® last?
Most patients report that the results from their treatments last six months or longer. However, this varies by patient and may depend on a where Belotero Balance® is being injected. For areas of the face that experience frequent movement, the results may not last as long and additional treatment will be required sooner.
The most common side effects with Belotero Balance®, which are typically mild in severity and generally go away within seven days, include swelling, redness, bruising, itching and dry lips.
