The natural effects of aging are inescapable. If fine lines around your mouth and nose leave you reluctant to smile, dermal fillers might be the answer. Here at South Valley OrthoMed, we offer BELOTERO BALANCE dermal filler treatments to restore natural skin contours around your smile, that are lost through the aging process.
BELOTERO BALANCE is an Hyaluronic Acid (HA) gel which is a natural component of skin and also, interestingly, of lubricating joint fluid. HA naturally binds to water molecules and, in fact, binds to water in the skin which blendsBELOTERO into the native structure of the skin. This blending gently fills etched-in lines and wrinkles creating a smooth natural look and feel.
Regarding duration of effect, individual results may vary since HA is a biological substance and will eventually be metabolized by the body. But BELOTERO BALANCE usually last 6 months or more. Some factors that affect the duration of action are the amount of product used and the area it is injected into. In areas that experience significant movement due to eating, talking, and smiling, the product may not persist as long as in less active areas.
Moderate to severe facial wrinkles and skin folds may require initial treatment with microneedling. But fine lines and moderate furrows can be instantly reduced with BELOTERO BALANCE.
What dermal fillers can do
- Fill and smooth fine lines and wrinkles, especially the upper lip
- Plump and enhance the lips
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
- Reduce lower-eyelid shadowing
- Enhance shallow contours
Forehead furrows and crowfeet around the eyes are typically not candidates for dermal fillers. We usually recommend neuromodulators such as Xeomin to smooth the upper facial contours.
