As we age, most of us tend to produce less collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin, and other natural compounds that keep the skin toned and elastic. This often causes the skin on the face (and body) to droop, sag, and develop wrinkles. Like Juvederm, Belotero Balance is a soft dermal filler used to restore a more youthful appearance to the face. However, Belotero is more effective than Juvederm for filling in fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
How Belotero Works
Like Juvederm, Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid-based filler. It was approved by the FDA for treating facial wrinkles and folds in 2011, while Juvederm was FDA-approved in 2006. Merz, the manufacturer, states that Belotero Balance is the only hyaluronic acid-based injectable dermal filler that completely integrates into the skin.
Some other soft dermal fillers are used to add volume to sunken cheeks, plump out thin lips, and reshape facial contours. However, Belotero is specifically formulated with a low specific density and patented CPM (Cohesive Polydensified Matrix) technologies, making it the most effective option for correcting moderate-to-severe wrinkles, lines, and folds in the face.
Belotero Balance achieves smooth, flexible, gel-like results as it gently corrects fine lines and wrinkles. Because of its lower density, it is able to be injected superficially. Other fillers like Juvederm have to be injected in deeper layers of the skin to create their effects.
Belotero Balance injections are performed using a very fine-gauge needle, and the procedure is practically painless. Results are noticeable immediately, feel natural to the touch, and typically last between 6-12 months, depending on various patient-specific variables.
