What is Belotero Balance?
Belotero Balance is an injectable gel filler that smooths moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles. Using hyaluronic acid (HA), the filler immediately creates a natural, finished look. This is a great filler for those struggling to hide or control deep-set lines and wrinkles.
A proprietary technology – the cohesive polydensified matrix (CPM) process – creates this treatment. Belotero Balance injectable gel evenly and completely blends into your skin, providing a smooth, glowing complexion unlike most other fillers. If you want to rid your face of lines and wrinkles, talk to our board-certified dermatologist in Mt. Vernon.
What are the benefits of this procedure?
As you age, your skin’s natural ability to bounce back begins to diminish. Any combination of the following may occur, depending on your skin’s health, your age, and your skincare regimen.
- Skin begins to lose collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA).
- Some of the structural volume within your face slowly decreases.
- Skin is more prone to develop etched-in lines and wrinkles.
While some fillers are designed to reduce facial volume and structure, Belotero Balance takes a more targeted approach, specifically treating moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles, such as vertical lip lines. This ability to target specific lines and wrinkles allows for a more natural result.
How does the Belotero Balance filler work?
This hyaluronic acid injectable filler is unique in that it instantly fills the skin to create a smooth surface, regardless of the depth and length of severe lines and wrinkles. The results are nearly instant. This specialized filler integrates with a patient’s skin tissue, smoothing your moderate-to-severe etched-in facial lines by filling in the small gaps beneath the skin’s surface. It also:
- Maintains normal movement and facial expressions.
- Feels natural to the touch.
- Fills lip lines that may be the result of smoking and/or sun damage with a beautiful and natural-looking result.
Results from this procedure typically last 6 months or longer, depending on the amount of product and the area of the body. For example, areas that experience a lot of facial movement due to eating, talking, and smiling may not last as long as other, less active areas.
What Happens During and After Treatment?
During a consultation, we will assess your facial lines and folds to determine if Belotero Balance is the right treatment for you. Once you have decided on the treatment, a medical professional will clean your skin and inject a small amount of local anesthetic, like lidocaine, into the area. They will then inject the gel into targeted parts of the skin. Typically, multiple syringes are needed to achieve full correction.
The treatment is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results. Common side effects with Belotero Balance are usually mild. Just like any injection, patients may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, tenderness, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects typically only persist for a few days.
Remember that only a certified medical professional can provide this filler.
