Before and After
What is the difference between BELOTERO BALANCE® and other fillers?
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler designed to integrate into the facial skin tissue. The unique manufacturing process for BELOTERO BALANCE® yields a soft and cohesive gel that, once injected, instantly fills the skin to help smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles. While the product is versatile enough to handle moderate nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), it may be an ideal option for treating delicate areas such as etched-in smile lines and vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above and around the lips).
What should I tell my doctor before injections with BELOTERO BALANCE®?
Tell your doctor if you are taking medicines that affect blood clotting, like aspirin, an NSAID, or warfarin. These medicines may put you at an increased risk of bruising or bleeding at the treatment site. Tell your doctor if you have a skin reaction like cold sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, hives, or an infection. Treatment with BELOTERO BALANCE® should be delayed until the reaction goes away. Tell your doctor if you are taking medicines that affect your immune system.
How long does it last?
Individual results may vary, but BELOTERO BALANCE® may last about six months or more. Some factors that affect how long it lasts are the amount of product used and the area it is injected into. In areas that experience a lot of movement due to eating, talking, and smiling, the product may not last as long as other less active areas.
What are the most common adverse events seen with BELOTERO BALANCE®?
The most common adverse events seen in clinical studies with BELOTERO BALANCE® were swelling, bruising, redness, hardening of the skin, pain, altered color, or itching. Other side effects that have occurred in clinical studies of BELOTERO BALANCE® include headache, swelling of the side of the nose, moderate cold sore, lip numbness, and lip dryness. Side effects were often mild to moderate and often resolved within seven days.
