What is Belotero Balance?
When you're young, your skin is supple and smooth because it has an abundance of collagen and elastin, but as you age, your skin loses elasticity and firmness as your body produces less of these natural vitamins. This results in visible symptoms of aging like fine lines and wrinkles on the face. At Southside Dermatology & Laser Cosmetic Center in Jacksonville, FL, skilled dermatologist Dr. Mary Pentel offers Belotero Balance injectable wrinkle filler to correct these issues. Belotero Balance is approved by the FDA to address moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the face, including persistent, deep-seated lines and nasolabial folds around the mouth. A minimally invasive solution, Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that delivers a natural, refreshed look.
Is belotero balance right for me?
Belotero Balance treatments are wonderful for people who wish to correct the appearance of fine to deep facial folds, lines, or wrinkles without opting for a surgical procedure. Belotero is ideal for lines around the lips and mouth, such as the nasolabial folds. Prior to the procedure, Dr. Pentel will discuss your known allergies, current medications, and medical history to decide whether you're a good candidate for Belotero Balance.
how is belotero balance administered?
Following your consultation, we'll escort you to one of our MedSpa treatment rooms to receive your treatment. We inject Belotero Balance via a very small needle, so many patients do not need a numbing cream or local anesthesia, but these are available upon request to further minimize discomfort. We'll identify and clean the treatment sites before administering Belotero Balance in a few fast applications. Dr. Pentel will apply pressure after each injection for a few minutes to stop any minor bleeding, but you will then be free to return to your daily activities.
What happens after my treatment?
Following your Belotero Balance injections at Southside Dermatology & Laser Cosmetic Center, you may have some mild redness, swelling, or bruising around the injection sites. These symptoms will fade naturally over the next few days. You will see some results right after your treatment, and these will continue to develop over the next two weeks. The results of Belotero Balance typically last about six months, so talk to Dr. Pentel about when you should return for a touch-up session.
