WHAT IS BELOTERO BALANCE?
BELOTERO BALANCE is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler, FDA-approved to treat moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles of the face. Like many dermal fillers, BELOTERO BALANCE contains the natural skin substance hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is responsible for capturing water and, in turn, keeping the skin hydrated, smooth and plump. When injected into the skin in gel form, the HA binds to water and adds volume to the area, effectively filling out wrinkles and folds.
This newer injectable filler offers some unique benefits compared to its predecessors. The manufacturers of this advanced filler use a new type of cross-linking technology with unique properties. This patented Dynamic Cross-Linking process creates a low-viscosity gel with uniform particle size that integrates seamlessly into the skin and spreads evenly into the tissues. The result is smooth, natural-looking facial augmentation, thanks to the injection of BELOTERO BALANCE by a skilled doctor like Anthony R. Bittar.
What Does Belotero Balance Treat?
BELOTERO BALANCE can treat many common facial problems associated with aging. It is specifically designed to treat moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles in the following facial areas:
- Crow’s Feet (Periorbital lines) around the eyes
- Smoker’s Lines (Perioral lines) around the lips and mouth
- Frown Lines (Vertical glabellar) on the forehead
- Laugh Lines (Nasolabial folds) running from the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Marionette Lines, which extend downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline
How Long Do Results Last?
Depending on where Belotero is used, results can last anywhere from 6 to 9 months. There are several factors that can affect how long the injections last, including the amount used and whether or not the injection site has a lot of muscle activity. Mobile areas like the lips and around the mouth may only last 5 – 6 months due to excessive muscle movement from talking, eating, smiling, etc.
Am I A Good Candidate For Belotero Balance?
The ideal BELOTERO BALANCE candidate is someone looking to diminish the signs of aging, including lip lines, crow’s feet and other facial lines. Individuals who suffer from acne scarring can also benefit from BELOTERO BALANCE. Age is not the best determinant as to who is the best candidate for this treatment. Men and women of all ages who are bothered by loss of facial volume and the formation of wrinkles may be good candidates for this type of injectable filler.
What Can I Expect During The Procedure?
BELOTERO BALANCE treatment is a safe and simple procedure performed at our Austin plastic surgery office. BELOTERO BALANCE injections are administered using a fine needle, so there is very little discomfort. A local anesthetic or numbing cream may be applied to decrease any discomfort during treatment. The procedure is usually completed in less than 30 minutes; however, treatment times vary depending on the extent of correction you’re looking for. Once the HA compound has been injected, it expands under the skin to fill in lines and wrinkles. Patients will see visible improvement immediately after their procedure.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is little to no downtime associated with BELOTERO BALANCE injections. In fact, most patients can resume their normal daily activities right after treatment. If there is any redness or bruising at the injection site, it can easily be camouflaged with makeup.
