Belotero Balance

Although this dermal filler is also formulated with hyaluronic acid, it is unique in a way that it can adapt to various skin types and more superficial wrinkles. The formula molds to skin contours for subtle, natural results. Results typically last 6 months or more before a touch-up treatment is needed. Treatment areas include:

  • Smile Lines – run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth

  • Marionette Lines – extend from the corners of the mouth to the jawline

  • Lipstick Lines – fine vertical lines that extend from the upper lip to the nose

Frequently Asked Questions

Is It Truly Different?

While still a HA, it does have variable cross-linking, making it a better choice for superficial lines and wrinkles similar to collagen products. There is less worry about lumps and bumps, as well as the Tyndall effect (a bluish discoloration) that can occur if other HA’s are placed too close to the epidermis.

One Disadvantage?

It does not come premixed with lidocaine, but it can be added. Additionally, topical anesthetic creams might be suggested for anesthesia.

Dermal fillers offer natural and long-lasting results for men and women who want to turn back the clock on their appearance. The procedure takes just a few minutes to complete, and most patients are back to their work and regular activities immediately following treatment.
