BELOTERO BALANCE® is the newest hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal filler and works in ways similar to other HA injectables such as JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Perlane®, and Radiesse®. Our West Palm Beach plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Pinsky, uses this cosmetic injectable to target the fine wrinkles and lines around the lips and eyes. Treatment can also be administered for lip augmentation. The softer, thinner consistency and natural moisturizing effects of BELOTERO BALANCE® separate it from other fillers. While some injectables can leave the skin feeling firm, BELOTERO BALANCE® is designed to leave skin feeling soft and smooth, providing even results. This unique solution can be ideal for treating delicate areas of the skin, such as the corners of the eyes. In fact, the makers of Belotero Balance® say it’s best for “the fine lines left behind” by other dermal fillers which are made to go target wrinkles and lines that form in the deeper skin layers.

How Does It Work?
BELOTERO BALANCE® is injected directly into the desired areas of the skin with a very fine needle. The natural solution bonds to your skin cells, working to smooth out wrinkles and restore volume in the face. Treatment generally takes up to 30 minutes, and it can usually be completed within a lunch break. Results from BELOTERO BALANCE® are expected to take effect immediately, and benefits can last for up to six months or longer. Follow-up treatments can enhance and prolong the effects.
What About After My Injection?
As with any injection, minimal swelling, redness, and tenderness may occur at treatment sites. However, side effects are generally mild and usually resolve quickly after treatment. Many patients can resume their regular activities immediately.
