If you’re reading this blog, chances are you’re well versed in the products and procedures involved in the aesthetic industry. You’ve probably then 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 Perlane are hyaluronic acid-based.
Now, for an advanced term — Belotero Balance. You have to be pretty savvy in the cosmetic world to know about this “other” hyaluronic acid filler. But we like Belotero Balance at Creative Image as a tool to address deeper wrinkles and creases around your mouth and nose.
What is Belotero Balance?
Like Juvederm and Perlane, 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. Butka 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 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. While called “laugh lines,” they’re not 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— These wrinkles mostly above the upper lip can make you look older.
- 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 especially funny, Belotero Balance could be for you. Call the team at Creative Image Laser Solutions, 325-641-1927, to make an appointment.
