Belotero Balance® dermal filler has a unique formulation that allows it to adapt within the skin to instantly plump and smooth fine lines and wrinkles on your face. The versatility of the product allows it to integrate into your skin and replace the hyaluronic acid that is lost due to the natural aging process.
This sophisticated dermal filler molds to your distinct facial contours by binding hyaluronic acid, filling in wrinkles and folds to create smooth and beautiful skin. Belotero treats difficult areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines), along with delicate areas such as vertical lip lines.
Belotero vs Other Fillers?
Belotero, along with some other dermal fillers, is made of hyaluronic acid, which binds with the skin’s own water to fill in wrinkles and folds caused by the natural aging process. However, Belotero is unique in its formulation, enabling it to adapt to your natural facial contours within the skin for immediate and smooth correction.
As we age, nasolabial folds, or smile lines, form from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth and grow steadily deeper. You may feel young and energized, but smile lines can make you look old, tired, or unhappy. Belotero provides a soft and natural correction as it fills in those lines.
Vertical lip lines
When volume is lost in the skin around your mouth, you can develop perioral lines above the lips (vertical lip lines). Smoking is one cause of lost volume in the skin above the top lip; another name for these upper lip creases is smoker lines. These troublesome lines can be narrow and shallow, forming above your top lip and distracting from your smile. Belotero gives you the ability to smile and not worry about any lines showing above your pearly whites.
Corners of the mouth
The skin’s volume loss in the oral commissures (corners of the mouth) can result in the appearance of a downturned expression in your mouth. This gives the impression of frowning or sadness and can lead to the development or worsening of marionette lines. Belotero replenishes the volume and smooths the surface around the mouth for natural expression.
Aging can cause lines to form downward from the corners of the mouth. These lines, known as marionette lines, form an expression of frowning, even when you’re not, and can develop into deeper creases as more volume is lost in the skin. Belotero fills in those unwanted wrinkles and folds, and naturally corrects your expression with smooth, beautiful skin.
When the skin is treated to full correction, Belotero plumps the skin and smooths lines and wrinkles immediately upon injection. A Belotero procedure has very little downtime, and most patients return to normal activities immediately following a visit. During your consultation, it is best to discuss time considerations with your doctor as every patient is unique, but Belotero results may last about six months or more.
Belotero is a clinically tested dermal filler approved by the FDA. Results are not permanent, and every individual is unique, but Belotero treatment may last about six months or more. Your doctor uses a fine gauge needle to inject the Belotero into the skin in a quick procedure that can be completed in our office.
Common side effects are mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. Belotero treatment side effects are minimal and typically resolve on their own, but if any effect persists, call your doctor immediately.
