Belotero Balance®

Injectable Fillers

Belotero Balance® is the latest, most advanced form of dermal filler available today. It has a unique ability to integrate with the tissues of the skin, providing volume and a more youthful shape to the face. FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, Belotero Balance can reduce lines and other signs of aging while enhancing facial structure and contours.

This treatment achieves smoother skin and very natural-looking results. Belotero Balance is gentle enough to treat the delicate skin around the lips but it can also be very effective for treating deep furrows such as the smile lines of the nasolabial folds.

The active ingredient in Belotero Balance is hyaluronic acid, or HA, a naturally-occurring substance within the skin. The HA binds to water, plumping the skin tissues and filling in wrinkles and lines around the treatment site.

Belotero Balance Treatment Areas

Belotero Balance dermal filler can help restore a more youthful, well rested appearance to the face. It is particularly effective in treating certain areas of the face, including:

  • Smile lines, or nasolabial folds, that appear between the side of the nose and the corner of the mouth
  • Vertical lip lines, or perioral lines, that form just above the upper lip
  • Corners of the mouth, or oral commissures, because when volume is lost in this area it can give the appearance of a persistent frown
  • Marionette lines, which form between the corners of the mouth and the chin and tend to become deeper with age

Good Candidates for Belotero Balance

Adults of any age who are concerned about facial lines or wrinkles may be good candidates for treatment with Belotero Balance. These are often problems that become more significant as people get older, but even younger men and women may experience common signs of aging due to sun exposure, heredity or other factors. It is also important for a patient's expectations to be realistic about what the treatment can achieve.

Advantages of Belotero Balance

Belotero Balance has a thinner, more lightweight composition than many other dermal fillers. This helps the gel that is injected to be distributed much more evenly and provides a smooth transition between the treatment area and the surrounding skin. It does not form lumps as some alternative forms of dermal filler occasionally do. Another benefit is that Belotero Balance may be injected close to the surface of the skin to maximize its effects. When other HA fillers are injected near the surface, they can produce a blue tint in the skin at the treatment site.

The Belotero Balance Treatment

The quick and nearly painless procedure typically takes approximately 20 minutes. Using a fine gauge needle, the Belotero Balance gel is injected into the skin at the treatment site. The results of a Belotero Balance treatment will be visible immediately. However, the corrections achieved by the filler injection are not permanent and vary by individual. For many patients, the effects are still apparent nine months after an injection.* To best maintain the results, follow-up treatment sessions are typically recommended every six to 12 months.

Recovery from Belotero Balance Treatment

There is no downtime needed after an injection with Belotero Balance. Most people can return to work or other normal activities immediately after the treatment session.

Side Effects of Belotero Balance

While considered a safe form of treatment, injectable dermal fillers may be associated with certain side effects. The most commonly occurring side effects after Belotero Balance treatment tend to be redness, irritation, swelling, itchiness, bruising or tenderness around the area of the injection. These reactions are typically mild and short-lived if they arise, usually improving on their own within a few days. However, if they do not resolve, patients should contact their doctor.
