As a Facial Plastic Surgeon who is also a skilled injector, Dr. Mandal has considerable experience in creating beautiful results with Belotero Balance®. Like Restylane® Silk, Belotero® is ideally suited for treating fine lines such as those around the lips. Belotero® consists of a clear hyaluronic acid gel formulated to act similarly to your body’s own hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is an essential matrix component throughout your entire face and body and is necessary for the support of numerous tissues.
Areas Of Injection
Belotero Balance® can be used to treat fine or superficial lines in areas such as:
- Superficial nasolabial or “parentheses” lines
- Superficial marionette lines
- Superficial chin lines
- Upper and lower lip wrinkles to improve “lipstick bleed”
- Fine cheek lines
- Fine lines of the glabella
What to Expect from Belotero Treatment
Belotero Balance® is available in approximately 1cc syringes which also contain lidocaine for numbing for a more comfortable treatment experience. For those very rare patients with a true lidocaine allergy, Belotero® also comes without lidocaine. Injections are performed with a very tiny needle specifically designed for use with Belotero® products for enhanced results.
Belotero® treatments can be performed in just under 30 minutes, allowing you to return to most routine activities immediately following treatment. The results are immediate. Although swelling is typically minimal, it can take several days to see the final results once the product settles. Most patients have minimal to no downtime. Bruising is rare and swelling is minimal to none. Makeup can typically be worn immediately after treatment.
Patients with a prior history of cold sores should notify our office in advance of treatment in order to determine if anti-viral prophylaxis is necessary. Patients who are allergic to lidocaine or similar anesthetic should notify us ahead of treatment so can have the lidocaine-free Belatero® product available. Patients on blood thinners may go off of them only with permission of their internist or cardiologist.
What can treatments can Belatero Balance be combined with?
Dr. Mandal frequently performs combination treatments using Belatero Balance and other rejuvenation procedures for enhanced results. Some popular combinations include:
- Micro-botox plus Belotero Balance® for treatment of static and dynamic lip wrinkles
- Layering of Belotero® for superficial lines with a deeper filler for deeper grooves in the nasolabial or marionette areas
- Genius™ RF or Infini™ RF plus Belotero® for superficial static lines around the mouth and cheek regions
