Belotero Balance® – It Becomes You
As we age, our skin inevitably loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural dermal volumizers and moisturizers such as hyaluronic acid (HA) diminish, leaving lines and wrinkles where our skin was once youthful, even and radiant.
Belotero Balance® is an HA dermal filler, made of the same volumizing and moisturizing component of your skin, so it is the natural choice for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
When injected, it instantly plumps and adds volume to the areas where it has been lost. Even the finest lines can be treated with confidence.
What’s the Belotero secret?
Belotero Balance is specially designed to integrate into your tissue to provide subtle and even results without disrupting the natural contours of your face, so you can be confident that no one will ever know how you manage to look so refreshed and confident. The Belotero secret can be your secret too.
In clinical studies 97% of patients showed a visible improvement after just one treatment with Belotero.(1)
If you have previously been treated with a dermal filler you will be surprised by the subtlety of the area treated. Unlike other fillers, you are unlikely to feel the implant, but will certainly see the refreshing results.
Belotero Balance® is used to treat:
The ‘ll’ between your eyebrows when you frown can be softened with Belotero.
Also known as “crow’s feet”, these lines can be reduced and smoothed with Belotero.
Bridge of the nose
To soften the appearance of bumps Belotero is ideal.
To regain the fullness of a youthful face, Belotero will help to round the cheekbones.
The lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth, also known as laughter lines, can be the most noticeable of all lines of the face. They can be smoothed away and leave you with a subtle, even result with Belotero.
Sometimes called smoker’s lines. These lines are hereditary and you do not need to be a smoker to get them. They can be easily removed with Belotero.
This subtle feature of the border of your lips diminishes as you age causing that annoying lipstick ‘bleed’ and can be easily replenished with Belotero. This treatment instantly rejuvenates your lips.
Whether you want a little moisturizing or full plump lips, Belotero is the perfect product for the lips.
These are lines from the corners of your mouth to your jaw. Treating these with Belotero can help to instantly provide a cheerful expression.
Backs of hands & décolletage
One of the tell-tale signs of aging is dryness and crêping of skin on the backs of your hands and the décolletage. Bring back that youthful suppleness with Belotero.
BELOTERO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is Belotero permanent?
No. Over time, the HA degrades naturally as your own HA would, giving you the freedom to decide if you want further youthful rejuvenation treatment in the future.
How long does Belotero last?
The effect will depend on the individual and the area that has been treated. In clinical studies 66% of patients continued to show a visible improvement 9 months after a single treatment. Most clients opt for follow-up treatments after 6 to 12 months to maintain a fresh, youthful appearance.
How long does the treatment take?
You will have an initial consultation to discuss your needs and your medical suitability for treatment should be discussed. The procedure usually takes around 20 minutes.
Is Treatment painful?
By design, Belotero helps to reduce any discomfort that may be experienced with dermal filler injections because it integrates into your own tissues where other fillers may disrupt the tissue when injected. Injections can be positioned towards the surface of your skin with the confidence that the tissue integration will ensure a smooth evenness of your skin after treatment. Dr. Stern may offer you a topical anaesthetic cream if your skin is particularly sensitive. This option should be discussed with Dr. Stern.
Will the treated area become hard or feel unusual?
Belotero integrates so readily into your own tissue that unlike other fillers, you are unlikely to feel the implant when you touch the treated area. This is especially important in areas like your lips, where you will want to see the results but not necessarily feel anything different.
How soon can I return to normal activities?
Some patients experience swelling or redness after injection which usually subsides soon after treatment. Some return to work immediately after treatment. With injections you may experience a slight bruise, but nothing that a little concealer can’t hide.
Important BELOTERO Balance® Dermal Filler Treatment Considerations
BELOTERO Balance® Dermal Filler is FDA-approved for injection into the dermis for the correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. After injection, patients may experience redness, bruising, swelling or other local side effects. More rare side effects may include swelling that lasts longer, unevenness or firmness in the area injected, and as with any injection, there may be a risk of infection.
