In addition to the range of JUVEDERM® products available, our team at West County Plastic Surgeons of Washington University, based in the St. Louis area, corrects collagen loss with fillers like BELOTERO Balance®, which targets moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. The best filler for you depends on your specific concerns and goals. With education in mind, the West County Plastic Surgeons team is sharing some of the benefits of BELOTERO Balance® for anyone considering this option.
It’s Great for Fine Lines
BELOTERO Balance® is lighter, thinner, and easier to spread when compared to many other fillers. It is thought to be highly effective for addressing small, superficial lines and wrinkles or signs of aging in delicate areas like vertical lip lines or smile lines. It also works well for adding definition to the borders of the lips.
The Procedure Is Quick
During a BELOTERO Balance® session, the product is administered with a fine-gauge needle. The procedure itself typically takes only around 30 to 60 minutes at most. Patients enjoy the treatment for its ease and the fact that they can essentially schedule appointments for their lunch break.
Virtually No Downtime Is Required
Patients can go back to their usual daily activities right after having BELOTERO Balance® injections. It typically takes just one to three days for you to feel completely “normal” again, but no aftercare is needed.
Results Are Long Lasting
The injectable filler lasts between six to 12 months on average. The lifespan of BELOTERO Balance® results varies, as each patient is unique, and it dissolves more quickly when used on some areas of the face.
Side Effects Are Minimal
Some minor irritation, swelling, redness, and bruising may occur around the part of the face that was injected. However, these side effects usually go away within a week at most.
It Reduces Nasolabial Folds
BELOTERO Balance® is a versatile filler and, in addition to thinner lines, it can also fill in more pronounced nasolabial folds around the mouth area. It contains hyaluronic acid to add volume while storing moisture.
