Belotero Balance® is FDA-approved for moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. Dr. Preminger uses the hyaluronic acid based dermal filler for etched-in wrinkles like vertical lip lines, smile lines, smoker’s lines, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. It’s not the best product on the market in terms of adding volume and lift, but it is a superior choice in smoothing out superficial lines in hard-to-treat areas in a natural-looking way.
Unlike other dermal fillers, the Belotero Balance gel is elastic and cohesive, which allows an even spread across the target area — without lumps, bumps, or blue discoloration that are sometimes seen with Juvederm and Restylane. Belotero injections offer immediate results that last six to 12 months. If you’re looking for a firmer, more youthful, but natural look without going under the knife, Belotero may be the solution!
While side effects are extremely rare, this product should not be used by patients with a history of allergies and anaphylaxis. Special precautions should be taken for patients with cold sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, or hives. A little swelling, bruising, and redness may occur following the injection, but should resolve without treatment within one week.
