Compared to more vigorous treatments, Belotero is known as a ‘starter filler’ and its light, natural formula can smooth away any tell-tale signs of aging leaving you with a refreshed, glowing radiance and soft, supple skin. It’s ideal for someone who wants to reduce fine facial lines such as frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, lip lines, laugh lines running from the nose to the corner of the mouth, and “marionette lines” running from the corner of the mouth to the jaw. It works beautifully on dry, crepey skin on the décolletage and sensitive soft tissue of the under-eye trough.
What is Belotero?
Belotero Balance® is a versatile hyaluronic acid based filler specifically designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your unique facial contours. It instantly plumps, softens lines and wrinkles, and adds volume to targeted areas around the nose and mouth. As such, it provides soft, natural results with staying power. You can be confident no one will know just how you manage to look so youthful and refreshed. Belotero can be your anti-aging secret!
How Does Belotero Work?
As we age, the skin loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural support structures (such as hyaluronic acid) diminish, resulting in lines and wrinkles. Belotero® is made of hyaluronic acid which is a natural component of your skin. It binds to water to plump and fill in wrinkles and folds, thus allowing for immediate and smooth correction.
Although, formulated with the same volumizing and moisturizing component found in your skin, Belotero's chemical structure makes it different from other hyaluronic acid fillers. During manufacturing, Belotero is passed through sieves that ensure a uniform particle size, making it extremely smooth, lightweight, and pliable. This allows it to adapt within very thin areas, for soft and even correction. The versatility of Belotero makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds, yet soft enough for the delicate under-eye area. Because it integrates so perfectly with your tissue, Belotero® tends to cause less redness and swelling than other dermal fillers, and can be layered over other dermal fillers as a finishing touch.
Belotero instantly plumps the skin and smooths the lines and wrinkles of the injected area. If you have previously been treated with a dermal filler, you will be amazed by the subtle, yet effective, result. You are unlikely to feel the gel under the skin, but will certainly see the remarkable difference. This makes it especially useful for patients with thin or delicate skin. Treatments are relatively painless, require no downtime, and you can return to normal activity. Like all aesthetic treatments, results depend on the individual, and the area treated; however,in clinical studies, 97% of patients show improvement with 1 treatment of Belotero, and 66% continue to show visible improvement 9 months after a single treatment. As with other hyaluronic gels, a touch-up treatment at 6-9 months helps maintain consistent effects.
What makes Belotero different from other hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane?
The technology of Belotero allows it to be used more superficially than other fillers to eliminate fine lines, and its viscosity makes it a perfect “top layer” filler to be placed over deeper fillers such as Radiesse or Juvederm Ultra. These denser gels can provide instant volume while the Belotero can add the finesse to soften superficial wrinkles. Plus, it’s great for thin, sensitive or delicate skin.
