Enjoy This Dermal Filler in the Dallas Area
Belotero Balance® is an injectable dermal filler much like Restylane®, Perlane®,Juvéderm®, and Juvéderm Voluma™. Like these other fillers, it is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that can help stimulate collagen production, resulting in fresh, youthful skin. As we age, our skin loses this beneficial component, as well as collagen and elastin, resulting in the appearance of unwelcome wrinkles and lines.
Belotero Balance®, available in the Dallas area, is called a filler because it sinks into wrinkles, folds, and lines in the skin, filling them in and reducing the appearance of these lines while maintaining the skin’s elasticity and flexibility of movement.
Unlike other injectable fillers, Belotero Balance® was created using a proprietary cohesive polydensified matrix process that produces a smooth, flexible gel that integrates naturally and quickly into the skin tissue. While different fillers have different ideal areas of application, Belotero Balance® is ideally suited to resolving moderate to severe nasolabial folds that form around the mouth and nose.
Am I a Good Candidate Belotero Balance®?
Belotero Balance® is best utilized for women and men of any age looking to eradicate moderate to severe nasolabial folds (the wrinkles that tend to form on either side of the nose and in the corners of the mouth). Patients looking for a swift resolution with minimal downtime may be especially attracted to this treatment option.
Patients with a history of allergies may be advised to seek an alternative treatment.
Patients interested in Belotero Balance® may also be viable candidates for other treatment options offered by Dr. Ellen Turner's dermatology office, including Ultherapy® and BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dr. Turner will discuss all possible treatment options, ultimately establishing a course that will best address your particular needs and concerns.
When Will I See Results, and How Long Will They Last?
The effects of a Belotero Balance® treatment for Dallas patients will be visible immediately following the treatment. The duration of these effects varies by patient, though most people can expect to maintain their positive results for at least six months. This will depend on the quantity and location of the treatment. Patients are advised that areas that experience the most movement, possibly due to smiling or chewing, might not maintain the positive results as long as areas that experience less daily movement.
Is Belotero Balance® Painful?
As with any injectable treatment, there may be minimal discomfort during the procedure. However, patients who are particularly sensitive or concerned about possible pain can share that concern with our staff, as we have methods of reducing discomfort during this procedure. It's our mission to ensure that our treatments are not only effective, but administered in such a way that our patients enjoy the most positive experience possible.
Patients who undergo an administration of Belotero Balance® are advised to avoid alcohol, sun or heat exposure, and strenuous activity in the 24 hours immediately following the procedure as these can result in temporary redness, itching, or swelling.
Other potential side effects include swelling, bruising, and redness, though these side effects are mild and typically resolve within a few days.
How Much Does Belotero Balance® Cost?
The cost of a Belotero Balance® treatment is comparable to the cost of other injectable fillers. However, costs will vary based on each patient's individual needs. Specifically, the location and number of treatments are major factors in determining treatment cost.
