Belotero Balance is among the latest in the next-generation of dermal fillers. Comprised of hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the human body, the substance adds volume to your skin, which lessens the appearance of the age-related lines, folds, and wrinkles. Belotero Balance is one of several injectable fillers that Dr. Ali offers in his Detroit plastic surgery office.
Why Should You Choose Belotero Balance?
Belotero Balance is an FDA-approved dermal filler that helps to reduce the appearance of many facial problems that are commonly associated with aging.
- Periorbital lines (Crow’s feet)
- Perioral lines (Smokers lines around the mouth and lips)
- Vertical glabellar lines (Frown lines on the forehead)
- Nasolabial folds (Laugh lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth)
- Marionette lines (Lines which run from the mouth to the jaw)
Dr. Ali also recommends Belotero Balance if your goal is to augment your lips and cheeks, or you wish to correct small facial depressions such as those left behind by acne or accidents.
How Does it Work?
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the human body. The substance is what gives skin its youthful appearance. As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases, which makes the facial skin sag and become thin. Those effects combined with the constant muscle contractions in our face cause wrinkles and furrows to develop. When Belotero Balance is injected into the affected areas, which replenishes some of the lost hyaluronic acid, your skin will begin to look firmer, smoother, and more youthful.
How is Belotero Balance Different?
Belotero Balance is the first monophasic dermal filler of its kind, which means that it’s made with a more stabilized, non-particle form of hyaluronic acid. In layman’s terms, that means that the substance is less likely to clump under the skin as opposed to biphasic or particle-based hyaluronic acid fillers.
What to Expect During Treatment
Dr. Ali may use a topical or local anesthetic to numb the injection sites. He will then begin to inject Belotero Balance into the areas that are most affected by fine lines, folds, and wrinkles.
The treatment session typically lasts around 20 minutes, and you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately following your appointment. You may experience mild swelling or redness at the treatment sites, but those side effects typically disappear within a day or two.
How Long Do the Results Last?
You will notice firmer, smoother and more youthful looking skin immediately after your appointment. The results can last for up to 6 months, and will gradually diminish over time. Dr. Ali recommends returning for treatments every 6 to 12 months to keep the results long-lasting.
