Newport Beach Belotero Procedures
Belotero Balance is a light-weight HA (hyaluronic acid) filler ideal for treating vertical fine lines in the perioral (mouth) area, as well as chin, forehead, and for augmenting the tear trough (under eyes) area.
Treatment area(s) is numbed with a topical numbing cream for 30 minutes before the treatment begins. Belotero is injected by needle directly under the surface of the skin. Patients are made comfortable by the numbing cream, and the steady hand of the injector. Ice packs are offered during and after treatment for added comfort.
All fillers to date are absorbed by the body over time, but Belotero Balance can last up to six months or more. Obviously, the results will not be the same over its duration and often maintenance injections are desired. Treatment areas consist of: vertical perioral lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, forehead, tear troughs, and corners of the mouth.
Anyone concerned with facial aging, fine lines, and wrinkles. Some medications, lifestyles and medical conditions may be contraindicated, restrict or prohibit treatment. Belotero Balance also offers immediate results. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished or erased. For optimal results, wait 3-5 days after treatment to allow swelling and any bruising to subside.
Belotero Balance has been clinically proven to last up to 6 months. However, each body absorbs HA fillers at its own rate. People with a fast metabolism and athletes can expect to absorb Belotero Balance and all HA fillers more quickly. For best results, protect skin by limiting sun exposure and applying a physical sunblock daily, such as CORE made in the shade or Elta MD. In some cases, Botox may enhance Belotero’s results and longevity.
Following treatment, the face will remain numb for several hours. Slight bruising and swelling can occur but is resolved in 3-5 days.
To minimize bruising, patients can apply pressure to the injection site for ten minutes following treatment. The treated area can present with red, shallow streaks that resolve within 3-5 days. Some tenderness in the treated area is normal but resolves within 3-5 days. Massage is recommended in the treated area(s) for the first 72 hours following treatment.
