Belotero BALANCE is an FDA-approved dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid. It is administered into the mid-to-deep dermis. Belotero BALANCE smoothly integrates into the natural structure of the skin tissue because it is made with patented Cohesive Polydensified Matrix technology which gives it exceptional elasticity.
Dermal filler Belotero BALANCE is indicated for filling in moderate-to-severe creases. It is a versatile product which can be used in the treatment of deep lines and hollows such as nasolabial folds and tear troughs as well as finer lines in the more delicate area near the mouth such as smoker’s lines and marionette lines.
Treatments with dermal filler Belotero BALANCE result in facial skin that looks and feels natural and retains its ability to produce normal expressions. The hyaluronic acid binds with the water in the skin, and the result is added volume and fine lines and wrinkles that are smoother and less visible. These changes are apparent the very day after the administration and last anywhere from 6 to 12 months depending on the facial area that was treated.
Dermal filler Belotero BALANCE has a low G prime with variable cross-linking. One way fillers are quantified by their “feel” is their G prime or elasticity. The G’ (G prime) or elasticity describes how the filler is able to retain its shape when a force is applied. High G primes are firmer and more contour stable, and lift tissue better. Dermal fillers with lower G primes are softer, spread through tissues easier and move with the face better. For a nasolabial fold or smile line, a firmer product will be a better choice due to the amount of movement and need for contouring. Along the lower lid of the eye, a lower G prime may be better suited. This, coupled with the ease with which it integrates into the skin, means there is less risk of the Tyndall effect, a bluish hue that occurs when dermal fillers are injected too superficially in the dermis.
Manufactured by Merz Aesthetics in Europe, Belotero BALANCE comes in a syringe pre-filled with 1 ml of gel accompanied by 1 x 27G1/2” and 1 x 30G1/2” needles. The dermal filler is made of cross-linked sodium hyaluronate of non-animal origin with a concentration of 22.5 mg/ml.
