Belotero Balance is another injectable filler that we use here at Bandak Plastic Surgery to satisfy your skin care needs. Belotero is a product by Merz Aesthetics, which has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of facial wrinkles and folds. It is especially beneficial for moderate to deep wrinkles such as glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows), and smile lines.
What is Belotero made of?
Belotero is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a clear substance that is naturally present in the body. HA is the ideal filler ingredient, because it hydrates the skin by attracting water to the cells.
How does it work?
Belotero injections at Bandak are performed using a refined technique, so as to achieve the best results. Topical numbing is available to reduce any discomfort. When injected into the skin Belotero merges with the skin tissue, providing support in the areas that have lost volume. It typically takes one session to achieve the correction needed. Treatment time is 15-30 minutes.
What to expect
There is no recovery time after treatment, so most patients are able to immediately return to daily activities. However, patients may experience redness and slight swelling, but this generally subsides within 1-7 days. Belotero instantly fills in wrinkles and fine lines, so the skin looks smoother and softer. The added moisture also plumps the skin.
Is it safe?
Belotero is considered very safe, as it simply replenishes the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid that is depleted due to aging.
How long does it last?
Belotero stays around longer than most of the other HA fillers, as it can last up to 12 months in some patients.
