Introducing Belotero Balance, a new form of the most frequently used cosmetic wrinkle filler, known as hyaluronic acid (same ingredient in Restylane and Juvaderm). Hyaluronic Acid fillers have been FDA-approved since 2005, however this newest form became available in March, 2011. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of skin which can attracts water and significantly contributes to the restoring volume of the skin.
What makes Belotero different?
It is the smallest particle filler and most delicate filler that makes it perfect for superficial, soft lines such as lines of the lips (aka “smokers lines”). Previous other fillers were much too thick and could lead to lumping and clumping. Other commonly treated areas include smile lines and marionette lines, but it can also be used on thinner lines on the neck, chest, and frown areas. Because of its consistency, Belotero is versatile and can be used alone or in conjunction with other thicker fillers. At The Cosmetic Vein & Laser Center, we mix our wrinkle fillers with an anesthetic to significantly decrease discomfort and they are well tolerated. The treatment time is usually under 15 minutes and results are instant! The effects can be seen for to 6-9 months.
