Belotero Balance, Deeper Filling
- Posted on: Oct 15 2018
If you’re reading Dr. Chandler’s blog, you probably have read about eyelid surgery, maybe even surgery for addressing the droopy eyelids of ptosis. You may know that Dr. Chandler also provides BOTOX and certain dermal fillers for his patients, and he injects them himself.
And if you’re reading a plastic surgeon’s blog, you’ve probably heard of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in humans and other animals whose job is to hydrate and plump the skin. It does this by binding with water molecules. Many of the world’s most popular fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid-based.
OK, so here’s an advanced question for you blog readers, “What is Belotero Balance?” You have to be pretty savvy in the cosmetic world to know about this “other” hyaluronic acid filler. But Dr. Chandler likes Belotero Balance to address deeper wrinkles and creases around your mouth and nose.
What is Belotero Balance?
Like Juvederm, Belotero Balance binds with water molecules in the injection areas to plump and hydrate the skin. But Belotero is a thicker consistency so it more effectively addresses some of the deeper wrinkles on the face. It is designed to integrate into your skin and to mold to your distinct facial contours. Dr. Chandler feels that Belotero Balance provides natural-looking results and soft, even correction.
Where is Belotero Balance approved to work?
The FDA has approved Belotero Balance for the lower third of the face. Results generally last for around six months. Here are the areas we use it:
- Nasolabial folds— These nearly universal creases can be quite deep on some people, casting a shadow below them. They may be commonly known as laugh lines, but they’re not really amusing!
- Chin wrinkles— Chin wrinkles can be quite deep, especially the horizontal lines that develop halfway between your mouth and the bottom of your chin.
- Vertical lip lines— Located mostly above the upper lip, these wrinkles can really make you look older. They are known as barcode lines and are very challenging to improve.
- Corner lines— These lines that surround the corners of your mouth can give off a sad or angry impression.
If you don’t find your laugh lines all that funny, Belotero could be a good solution for you. Give Dr. Chandler a call at (609) 877-2800 in Moorestown, and (215) 885-6830 in Jenkintown, and ask us about Belotero Balance and other cosmetic fillers for facial sculpting!
