Belotero Balance is a dermal filler whose smooth texture makes it ideal for treating areas where thin skin would show unevenness in the filler. This makes our preferred treatment for lip augmentation, but also makes it a good option for treatment anywhere you want to subtly fill in folds, wrinkles, and hollows. Belotero is the most recent hyaluronic acid filler approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
This page contains some technical information about Belotero, but the only way to know whether it is right for you is to have a personal consultation with one of our doctors. To schedule a consultation with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon, please call (212) 688-5882 or email JUVA Skin & Laser Center in New York City.
What Can Belotero Do?
Belotero is a dermal filler that can restore volume lost as a result of aging, erasing the visible traces of age to give you a more youthful appearance. It can be used for:
- Lip augmentation
- Nasolabial folds (parenthesis lines around the mouth)
- Sunken cheeks
- Under-eye hollows
- Tear trough
It can be used for one or several of these applications during a single treatment.
What Are Treatment and Results Like with Belotero?
Treatment with Belotero is relatively quick and almost completely painless. Once you have been determined to be a good candidate, you will come in for a brief procedure. Belotero is injected into the desired treatment areas. Treatment may take as little as 20 minutes, but may be longer if you have multiple areas you want to be treated.
Belotero’s smooth consistency reduces discomfort, swelling, and redness after injection, but there may still be some for a couple days after treatment. Results are visible immediately, and last for 9 months in about 2/3 of patients. Depending on your preferences, you may want retreatment after 6-12 months.
What Is Belotero?
Belotero is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, similar to Juvéderm and Restylane. Hyaluronic acid is a natural moisturizer found in your body’s tissues and fluids, such as in your joints, eyes, and skin. As we age, we lose hyaluronic acid in our skin, reducing its ability to retain moisture.
Belotero restores volume and hyaluronic acid in treated areas, restoring volume and binding moisture.
