Belotero Balance is a dermal filler made with hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found in the skin. By injecting Belotero Balance into the skin it helps temporarily smooth out those unwanted folds, depressions formed by acne scars and wrinkles.
What does Belotero Balance treat?
It is common for treating facial problems that are associated with aging. Frown lines on your forehead, crow’s feet around your eyes, lines around the mouth and lips and laugh lines are common areas that are treated with Belotero Balance. Other applications this dermal filler is used for are augmenting the cheeks and lips or repairing small facial indentations created by acne or injury.
How is the treatment done and are there any side effects?
Like many of the dermal fillers on the market today, Belotero Balance is a procedure where you are making an injection into the treated area by using a very fine needle. When the filler is injected you will experience a pricking feeling, but most patients do not feel much discomfort, if any while the injection is being made. If you are sensitive to needles then you can request a topical anesthetic that numbs the area where the injection will be made.
The Belotero Balance treatment usually takes between 20 – 30 minutes depending on the amount of areas being injected. Once the procedure is complete you can resume your normal activities. You may experience some minor side effects like redness, mild swelling, and itching. In most cases these side effects only last one to two days, but sometimes they can last longer when injections have been made to the lips.
