What You Need To Know About Belotero Fillers
Aging isn’t a fun process. Who wants to look in the mirror to see droopy creases, deep eye hollows, or wrinkles? Fortunately, Belotero Balance treatment, a FDA approved dermal filler, can smooth and fill in under eye wrinkles (aka bags) for an overall younger appearance. Not sure if Belotero Balance is right for you? The dermatologists of Short Hills Dermatology explain all you need to know about Belotero Balance.
Belotero Helps Lessen Signs of Aging
Hyaluronic acid is one of the first skin breakdowns to occur during the aging process. Belotero Balance uses hyaluronic acid inside a dermal filler to restore, volumize, define, fill-in, and smooth out problem areas including:
- Nose: creases, nasolabial folds, wrinkles surrounding the nose and mouth.
- Mouth: upper lip fine lines, wrinkles
- Eyes: under eye pockets, hollow areas
The Belotero Treatment Process
Similar to other fillers, dermatologists can administer this cosmetic treatment in less than 30 minutes. A board-certified dermatologist preps your skin before carefully injecting Belotero, thereby ensuring the product integrates with the skin tissue. Like most dermal fillers, dermatologists use a fine-gauge needle. Belotero will instantly bind with water in your skin to fill in moderate to severe creases. Moments later, you may see Belotero take effect before even after leaving the office. Once treated, you will maintain the same normal facial expressions and movement, but with the benefits of plump, rejuvenated and youthful skin.
Does Belotero Require Maintenance?
Although each case yields different results, Belotero Balance lasts about six to twelve months on average for most people. However, patients receiving Belotero in areas that experience excessive movement, such as areas surrounding the lips, might need to return for treatment earlier than six months due to the nature of the repetitive skin movement. In contrast, Belotero treatment surrounding sensitive areas around the eyes can last a full year due to the minimal movements of the skin’s surface. The reason is that the hyaluronic acid slowly diminishes back into the skin, resulting in the reappearance of pre-existing wrinkles.
Belotero Treatment Recovery Tips
While the there are a number of alternate dermal fillers on the market today, unlike Juvederm and Restylane, Belotero provides a unique combination that doesn’t leave skin as irritated, puffy, or discolored. Even better, these injections typically have very little downtime. While some patients may experience mild discomfort during or after the treatment procedure, the possibility for side effects may include mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising, and/or tenderness at the injection site. Certain side effects have the tendency to clear up on their own; should you experience any of side effects, seek medical treatment immediately.
Patients who typically receive Belotero Balance can resume their normal activities once leaving the office. With hardly any downtime, some patients even consider receiving Belotero treatment on their lunch break. For the best results, refrain from engaging in any strenuous activity such as exercise or direct exposure to sun or heat. Dermatologists recommend not consuming aspirin or drinking alcohol.
How Much Does Belotero Cost?
The cost of Belotero balance is contingent on the condition of the treated area, as well as the amount of syringe or syringes needed to create your desired results. Booking a consultation with a trusted NJ dermatologist will yield the most accurate cost assessment. Typically, one treatment session can cost approximately $500. In comparison with other top brand dermal fillers, Belotero Balance is reasonably priced.
