What is Belotero Balance®?
Belotero Balance® is a dermal filler developed to mold to the individual contours of a person’s face. It contains hyaluronic acid (HA) so that when injected, this filler combines with the skin to soften fine lines, wrinkles, and folds around the nose and mouth to create a naturally smooth complexion and appearance.
Belotero Balance® is unique in that it is strong enough to treat deeper wrinkles and folds, and at the same time, delicate enough to fill in the vertical lines around the mouth and contours of the lips as well as the area underneath the eyes that may become slightly hollow. On top of this, once it is injected, it instantly fills in the wrinkles and folds by adding volume.
Benefits of Belotero Balance®
Belotero Balance® offers the following benefits:
- Safe for all skin types
- Virtually no risk of negative or allergic reaction
- Treats several types of skin imperfections on different areas of the face
- No downtime or recovery period
- Long-lasting results
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Belotero Balance®?
Belotero Balance® is ideal for anyone who has fine lines, wrinkles and other skin imperfections from aging. The hyaluronic acid in Belotero Balance® allows the skin to once again, retain moisture helping it to stay fresh looking and smoother like it once did. Since it has HA in it as the main ingredient, there is little risk of any allergic or negative reaction.
What Do I Do to Prepare for Belotero Balance®?
Belotero Balance® is like any other dermal filler in that the only thing that should be done is to stop taking any blood-thinning medications and supplements a week before your treatments if possible to reduce or prevent bruising at the injection site.
What Should I Expect the Day of Belotero Balance® Treatments?
Belotero Balance® is simply injected into the targeted area of the face with a very fine gauge needle. The number of injections depends on the area(s) treated and the extent of the aging process in those areas. The treatments are not painful and come with very little discomfort. If necessary, we can apply a numbing cream to ensure the treatment is painless.
What to Expect After Belotero Balance®
As with most fillers, there is no downtime with Belotero Balance®. It is possible to return to normal activities immediately after each treatment. There may be some slight swelling or redness at the injection site, but this resolves itself quickly.
When Can I Expect to See the Results of Belotero Balance®?
Unlike other dermal fillers, the results from Belotero Balance® are immediate and last about six months or so. To maintain the excellent results from Belotero, it is important to keep up with treatments on a regular basis to ensure your complexion stays smooth and you keep looking younger.
