Belotero Balance, often called simply Belotero, is the brand name of an injectable dermal filler that helps smooth lines and wrinkles in the face. It is made from hyaluronic acid, a natural element found in skin that binds to water, which makes it effective for minimizing facial folds and wrinkles. It is most often used in people with moderate to severe lines, and it works quickly to remove facial wrinkles.
Adults who have wrinkles in their face that they’d like to get rid of are good candidates for Belotero. It is most often used for areas like frown lines, forehead wrinkles, laugh and smile lines and crow’s feet. However, there are many dermal fillers on the market, so you’ll want to discuss with your dermatologist which is the best solution for your individual case.
Belotero is a quick and simple procedure performed in your doctor’s office. Using a fine-gauge needle, you’ll receive a series of injections at the site of the wrinkles you want removed.
The most common side effects of Belotero are the same as any other injection treatment, which can include some swelling, redness and light bruising. These side effects will usually go away on their own, although if they persist or worsen, you will want to contact your doctor.
Since each person is different, the effects of the treatment will last longer for some than for others. On average, the results last about six months. However, this can be affected by several things, such as how much Belotero is injected into an area and how much movement that area undergoes during activities like eating, smiling and laughing.
