A hyaluronic acid filler consisting of soft gel, Belotero Balance® is designed to integrate into the skin's tissue completely. Belotero Balance® is used to temporarily reduce moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles, especially the wrinkles or folds that extend from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. The injection is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
How does it work?
Over time, skin loses some of the components that it needs to appear youthful, such as hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen. This makes skin more likely to show wrinkles and fine lines.
Since Belotero Balance® integrates into your skin’s tissue, it feels natural and allows you to maintain normal expression and movements. Since Belotero Balance® is made of a substance that naturally exists in skin, the entire process is cohesive.
What can I expect?
You will notice results immediately after treatment, which takes less than an hour. Each patient varies, but most continue to see results for six months or longer. Some patients see a shorter duration of effectiveness for areas that undergo a lot of movement with talking and eating.
Side effects can include redness, bruising, swelling, and irritation for a few days following the injection. It is also possible to experience a headache and dryness and numbness of the lips. You will likely need to avoid some things following the injection, such as extreme sun exposure and alcohol consumption. Very little downtime is needed following an injection, and patients resume their regular activities right away.
