BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.
BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction of lines and creases. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line) or fine cheek lines. It is FDA-approved for treating these areas. We have also had great success in using Belotero Balance in treating dark circles under the eyes. It is an ideal filler for this purpose.
The results of Belotero Balance treatment lasts for 6-12 months. The effects diminish gradually as your body absorbs the natural hyaluronic acid. The advantage of this and other temporary fillers, such as Restylane or Juvederm, is that you can have touch ups or re-treatment at any time.
As with other injectable fillers, Belotero injections take about 15 minutes.
- Topical numbing cream is applied to the area
- Belotero is injected under the skin in precise areas
- If necessary, Dr. Greenberg will gently massage the treated area
- You will see final results in about one week
