Belotero is an FDA approved prescription injection that is designed to temporarily smooth out and fill in smile lines that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth. Upon injection, it quickly and evenly integrates into your skin.
How Belotero Balance® Works
Belotero Balance® is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler designed to integrate into facial skin tissue. The unique manufacturing process for Belotero Balance® yields a soft and cohesive gel that, once injected, instantly fills the skin to help smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles.4,5 While the product is versatile enough to handle moderate nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), it may be an ideal option for treating delicate areas such as etched-in smile lines and vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above and around the lips)
Benefits of Belotero Balance®
Clinically proven safe and effective, Belotero Balance® has been shown to help smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in facial lines and wrinkles. It feels natural to the touch and allows you to maintain normal movement and facial expressions. The treatment process is quick and easy with little to no downtime.
Who Can Receive Belotero Balance®
The lines that run vertically between your nose and mouth, sometimes called nasolabial folds, can become more pronounced over time. And as these folds deepen, they can create unflattering shadows on your face that may make you look older.Belotero Balance® is designed to smooth the appearance of these moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds, providing immediate correction for an elegant finishing touch.
Time is working against your skin’s appearance. Every time you speak, eat, kiss, or smile, your skin remembers and lines eventually begin to show on your face. The vertical lines above and below your lips can be difficult to hide with makeup and are often highlighted when a bright shade of lipstick bleeds into them.Belotero Balance® gel fills those unwanted vertical lip lines and wrinkles quickly and effectively, leaving you with smoother skin that feels and moves naturally.
Downturned lines at the corners of your mouth can make you look sad or angry. While these corner lines are a natural result of gravity taking its toll, that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. After treatment with Belotero Balance® moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles at the corners of the mouth are noticeably smoother with a natural look and feel.1
Your style, your personality, and your smile say a lot about you. So when those stubborn etched-in smile lines around your nose and mouth (sometimes called nasolabial lines and wrinkles) naturally begin to develop and deepen, don’t let them distract from your smile. Add a finishing touch with Belotero Balance, and help take your wrinkles all the way to smooth.
Over time, people may develop a horizontal line that appears across the chin in the shape of an upside down smiley face. While etched-in lines like these are the natural result of repeated expressions we make or an active chin muscle, they can also subtly add years to your appearance.
What to Expect
It’s a quick, simple treatment with little to no downtime. You can immediately resume your daily activities. Just like any other injection, you may experience mild irritation, redness or tenderness. These should not last for more than 7 days.
Belotero Balance® Before and After
Individual results may vary, but Belotero Balance® may last about 6 months or more. Some factors that affect how long it lasts are the amount of product used and the area it is injected into. In areas that experience a lot of movement due to eating, talking, and smiling, the product may not last as long as other less active areas.
Belotero Balance® Side Effects and Risks
Belotero Balance® is FDA approved and has undergone testing in a clinical study to demonstrate its safety. Hyaluronic acid products for wrinkle correction have been available for a long time and used in thousands of treatments.
Just like any injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve on their own.
Cost of Belotero Balance®
The cost of Belotero Balance® varies for each patient, as the number of injections needed increases or decreases with each unique patient. During your consultation with Dr. Mary Pritikin, a plan for treatment will be put together based on your specific cosmetic and financial needs.
