Belotero Balance®, an alternative to other hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers such as JUVEDERM® or Restylane®, can be very beneficial to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This non-surgical injectable is thinner and softer in consistency compared to similar products, allowing Belotero Balance® to more completely integrate with your skin. Belotero Balance® is designed to create smoother, younger-looking facial skin by utilizing nourishing elements that mimic the skin’s own natural moisturizers. This injectable can leave skin feeling soft and supple, making Belotero Balance® an ideal choice for treating the area around the eyes or for use in delicate procedures such as lip enhancement.
Why People Choose Belotero Balance®
Belotero Balance® is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment to directly fill fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Due to the fine consistency of this innovative injectable, the contours of the face can be smoothed and enhanced in an inconspicuous manner, providing patients with facial features that look refreshed rather than artificial. Areas of the face that can be rejuvenated with Belotero Balance® include:
- Fine lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Thinning lips
To determine if you are a good candidate for Belotero Balance®, one of our plastic surgeons will perform a thorough facial aesthetic analysis. The goal of this initial consultation is to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about your cosmetic treatment. After your consultation, you will have a better understanding of how Belotero Balance® can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
If you are on aspirin, non-steroidal pain medications (NSAIDs), blood thinning medications (Coumadin, Lovenox, Plavix, etc.), or herbal medications (garlic, Vitamin E, etc) you may have a slightly higher risk of bruising after your Belotero Balance® treatment. If you are on any of these medications or if you have any questions, please contact our office to speak with one of our doctors prior to your treatment or consultation. Anti-bruising medications can be used for patients at “high risk” for bruising.
What to Expect
All Belotero Balance® injections are performed by Dr. Jerome Liu or Dr. Tom Liu, both fellowship trained plastic surgeons. Belotero Balance® is well tolerated by most patients and the treatment typically causes only mild discomfort. We use a multi-modality regimen with several pain reducing techniques to help ensure your experience is as comfortable as possible.
After your Belotero Balance® injection, most patients can resume normal daily activities. We recommend avoiding strenuous activities the evening after injection. While some patients may experience mild bruising or swelling, these reactions typically resolve quickly. If you have a specific event or public engagement where bruising may be problematic or inconvenient, we ask that you contact our office and speak with the physician prior to your injection.
Belotero Balance® can play an important role in any facial rejuvenation regimen and ultimately provide smoother, younger, more refreshed-looking skin. To find out if Belotero Balance® is the right choice for you, please contact Jerome Liu or Tom Liu.
