Belotero Balance® is an injectable filler that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Also made from hyaluronic acid (HA), similar to other dermal fillers such as Juvederm® and Restylane®, Belotero® can smooth the skin and add volume to chosen areas of the face. The main advantage of Belotero® over the other similar products is its thinner and softer consistency. This makes it ideally suited for injection into delicate areas of the face such as the grooves under the eyes, fine lines and the lips.
Since Belotero is composed of hyaluronic acid, there is no need to undergo allergy testing. The procedure takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete depending on the number of areas being treated. A local or topical anesthetic may be administered for the patient’s comfort before injection under the skin. The results from a treatment session are immediate and can last up to 9 months.
