Approved by the Federal Drug Administration in 2012, Belotero Balance is widely available at a range of medical providers who concentrate on specialized cosmetic services. Its benefits have become apparent to thousands of physicians across the United States. Quoted by the Cosmetic Surgery Times soon after Belotero’s release, Dr. Derek H Jones (clinical associate professor of dermatology at the University of California, Los Angeles and founder/director of Skin Care and Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills) declared that Belotero Balance “can do exactly what the other leading hyaluronic acid fillers can do, both in terms of its ability to correct wrinkles and folds and volumize the face and lips.”
What is Belotero Balance?
A dermal filler similar to brand name products such as Botox and Juvéderm, Belotero Balance is comprised of a natural substance called hyaluronic acid that occurs organically in human skin. The hyaluronic acid in Belotero Balance is formulated using a proprietary process that yields an exceptionally smooth and cohesive gel. When injected into problem areas, Belotero Balance blends into the natural structure of the patient’s skin, filling in lines and wrinkles to create a smooth and natural look and feel.
How It Works
Over time, human skin loses hyaluronic acid and other naturally occurring components such as collagen and elastin. This loss causes leaves skin far less supple and flexible and far more susceptible to the development of permanent etched-in lines and wrinkles. By replacing or augmenting falling hyaluronic acid levels, Belotero Balance restores much of the skin’s original youthful vigor. Because hyaluronic acid binds to water, it interacts naturally with the skin’s own moisture, making it an ideal substance to correct wrinkles and folds.
The Benefits of Belotero
Research backs up Dr. Jones’ claims that Belotero Balance filler appears to rival leading dermal products, finding that its duration is roughly equivalent to both Juvéderm (Allergan) and Restylane (Medicis). However, Belotero Balance offers some unique advantages over its closest competitors. The proprietary manufacturing process behind Belotero Balance makes it an ideal product to integrate into facial skin tissue. The constancy of Belotero Balance gel is perfectly formulated to instantly fill the skin after injection, smoothing moderate to severe lines and wrinkles that have been etched in over time. Although it is strong enough to handle moderately severe smile lines around the mouth (nasolabial folds), it is also delicate enough to treat delicate smile lines, vertical lip lines, and other thin lines that appear around the lips.
