Uniquely-formulated Belotero Balance helps patients in Newport Beach CA achieve a more youthful, yet natural look
Belotero Balance may not be as well-known as Juvéderm, but you should get to know this dermal filler and the unique characteristics that may make it the preferred way to treat folds around the nose and mouth.
Introducing: Belotero Balance
The FDA approved this dermal filler in 2011. It is indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. Juvéderm gained FDA approval for the correction of facial folds and wrinkles in 2006.
Juvéderm has become a family of products, such as Juvéderm Ultra Plus. The newer products are generally thicker and designed for the treatment of severe wrinkles.
Belotero Balance has always boasted characteristics that may have made it a more attractive treatment for patients whose wrinkling was too pronounced to be treated effectively with some Juvéderm fillers.
Belotero’s familiar benefits
More fillers are made from hyaluronic acid (HA) than any other substance. HA is produced naturally by your body. It provides structural form and shape to the skin. Its production naturally decreases over time.
Like the Juvéderm family of products, Belotero Balance is made from HA. Since it is an HA-based filler, Belotero Balance generally poses fewer risks to patients than synthetic or animal-sourced fillers associated with potentially toxic or allergic reactions.
Hyaluronic acid is also known as a moisture-loving molecule. It attracts water to the treated area. These HA-based fillers are gels that are injected into treatment areas with small needles. To get the results you want from treatment, it is important to select a professional skilled in administering your filler of choice. Some fillers, for example, are thicker than others and require different techniques than more viscous products.
Belotero’s unique benefits
Belotero Balance is made differently from other HA-based fillers, including Juvéderm. The proprietary formulation results in a soft, smooth, and cohesive solution designed to integrate into facial tissues. You will see the results of treatment immediately following the injection. Due to its unique properties, Belotero Balance evenly blends into the skin’s structure for a natural appearance and feel.
The majority of minimal skin reactions subside within a week of treatment. A “touch up” injection may be suggested after the first injection. This follow-up treatment usually occurs a few weeks after the initial treatment, and may be necessary to achieve the desired results. After treatment, you can enjoy a more youthful appearance for around six months. The filling effect goes away gradually and safely.
