Do you have smile lines you want to soften? Or maybe you have lines around the corners of your mouth you’d like to treat. Dr. Richard Buckley of MilfordMD can help with Belotero Balance®, an injectable filler. Belotero Balance® is a unique dermal filler that is specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct contours while helping you look younger and reducing the appearance of aging.
Smile lines, vertical lip lines, corners of the mouth, crow’s feet and marionette lines are examples of areas Belotero Balance® can help. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas as well as more delicate areas.
Q. What makes BELOTERO BALANCE® different from other fillers?
Belotero Balance® is made of a material called hyaluronic acid, or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. Other fillers are also made of HA, but Belotero Balance® has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for even correction.
Q. When can I expect to see results and how long do results last?
You will see results immediately. As soon as Dr. Buckley injects Belotero Balance®, the filler plumps the skin and smoothes away lines and wrinkles. Individual results may vary, but for most people Belotero Balance will last about six months or more.
Q. Can I go right back to work after treatment?
You can even do this procedure on your lunch hour. There is little or no downtime associated with Belotero Balance®, depending on each individual.
Q. How safe is it?
Belotero Balance® is FDA approved, and has undergone clinical studies to prove its safety.
Q. Are there any side effects?
As with any injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, bruising, tenderness or redness at the site. These side effects generally resolve without issue.
What patients are saying
Sandra, a 48-year-old mother and personal trainer wanted to fit in with the younger moms. “Most of my friends are younger moms and you know, I just wanted to fit in with them. So smoothing out those little lines and those deep wrinkles made me feel more comfortable around them,” she said. “Belotero Balance® worked wonders. People say I look good, but it’s so natural looking they never asked what I did. And now I’m not the older mom anymore. One treatment of Belotero Balance® did the trick. I love it, and so does my husband.”
Lara, a 44-year-old Belotero Balance® patient, said she didn’t want to look plastic, and was nervous to even try it out. “I have to admit it, I was afraid. I didn’t want the plastic look. I wasn’t even sure I needed it, but after Belotero I looked the same, just more refreshed, and younger, of course. I was so pleased. It’s hard to feel beautiful as you age. I wanted to look natural and to keep what I have without looking fake. Belotero smoothed out the harsh areas. Those creases and even the thinner lines seemed to melt away. I love it. I’m so glad I did it.”
