Belotero Balance® is a prescription injectable that is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate to severe nasolabial folds, as well as certain facial volume loss. Nasolabial folds are folds or wrinkles that extend from the side of the nose to the edges of the mouth; a common issue for men and women as they age.
Loss of Collagen, Elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid
Over time, due to age and environmental factors are skin begins to naturally lose important compounds such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA). The loss of these compounds causes the skin to develop wrinkles, fine lines, facial folds and lose its once smooth, supple look and feel.
How Belotero Balance® works?
Belotero Balance® is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler designed to integrates with the facial tissue and make up for the loss of these important facial compounds. While some facial fillers specifically rebuild volume loss, Belotero Balance® is better suited to treating wrinkles and lines. More specifically nasolabial folds, and vertical lip lines.
When injected, Belotero Balance® produces a smooth flexible gel that interacts with the natural structure of your skin. It naturally fills in the gaps and etched in lines that create wrinkles and facial folds, allowing your skin to look smoother and have a naturally supple texture.
During your consult we will recommend whether you are the ideal candidate for Belotero Balance®, depending on your corrective needs as well as your skin’s current state.
Benefits of Belotero Balance®
What to expect? Side Effects?
Like any other injectable facial filler, the procedure is quick and relatively painless. Most patients liken the feeling to a snap of a rubber band or a light pinch. However, depending on the severity of your wrinkles Belotero Balance® injections must be repeated at intervals of a few months.
Generally, there are few side effects from Belotero Balance®, as with most other facial fillers. Some patients may feel light swelling, or experience light redness but this should pass within 5-7 days after the procedure. To lessen the negative effects, we recommend you avoid alcoholic beverages, over-exposure to sunlight or tanning booths, and strenuous activity for 2-3 days after receiving the injection.
