Have you recently looked in the mirror only to find that there are defined lines making themselves down from the side of your nose to the corners of your mouth? They may look like wrinkles or deepening folds in your skin. This area of the face is actually called the nasolabial folds, and these delightful little crevices tend to deepen and become more noticeable as we age. Belotero Balance® is a dermal filler which has been developed to treat moderate to severe nasolabial folds and lessen their overall appearance.
Belotero Balance® has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective way to treat nasolabial folds and other delicate facial areas around the mouth and nose. Etched-in smile lines and the thin lines that appear above and around the lips (vertical lip lines) have also been successfully treated with Belotero Balance®. This prescription-only treatment is a dermal filler, and it is not considered to be similar to Botox®, which acts as a nerve and muscle relaxer.
Belotero Balance® assimilates into facial skin tissue because it is made from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring within the skin. It is formulated as a very smooth gel that, when injected, combines with the skin’s composition. So, this unique dermal filler quite literally fills in areas under the skin that then diminishes the look of folds, lines, and wrinkles.
The procedure is performed at Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic offices by our skilled skincare professionals and requires no preparation other than a cosmetic-free face. Belotero is delivered into the skin using a fine-gauge needle. Many patients observe results after the first treatment. While all patient treatments and dosages are different, the results witnessed can last up to six months.
With Belotero Balance® injections, as with all other cosmetic procedures, there is a risk of developing side effects. After your procedure, you will be reminded that for the next 24 hours, you should avoid things like engaging in strenuous activity, sun or heat exposure, or other anti-inflammatory medications, and alcohol.
The expert staff at Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center will examine you to determine if you are a candidate for Belotero Balance®. We will help you explore the pros and cons and discuss your expectations of the results. The procedure will be thoroughly explained, including what you can anticipate after your first treatment.
