Belotero Balance, an FDA-approved dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, is strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).
It’s also highly effective against lines at the corners of your mouth, which are called oral commissures. As we age, we can lose volume in this area and develop a downturned appearance of the mouth, creating an expression people mistake for sadness or disapproval.
Belotero Balance can also diminish the tiniest and most superficial of lines because its small particles and malleable texture make it possible to smooth shallow lines instantly while maintaining a bump-free surface.
It fills in wrinkles and folds by binding to water, which creates immediate and smooth correction—and because the needle used to administer it only penetrates the skin’s top layers, there’s far less bruising involved.
Results are very natural looking, adding subtle volume and plumpness to facial tissue with little to no downtime and last for six months to a year. Since the gel is softer than most other products on the market, it integrates into facial skin more easily and adapts well to facial contours.
Costs for Belotero Balance are about $500 per syringe.
