Belotero Balance is Food and Drug Administration-approved to add volume to moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. This hyaluronic acid-based soft tissue filler has been widely used in Europe and Canada, is been used in Europe and Canada for years.
What Is Belotero Balance?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance found in the body’s connective tissues. Its supply dwindles with advancing age, but injections of Belotero Balance or other hyaluronic acid-based fillers can increase volume, creating a more youthful appearance. Other hyaluronic acid-based fillers, including Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane and Prevelle Silk, are currently available in the United States.
Merz Pharmaceutical’s Belotero Balance may hold certain advantages over the currently available hyaluronic acid fillers due to its ability to treat superficial or fine lines. Some other hyaluronic acid fillers can cause a bluish hue if they are injected too superficially, as light reflected through the skin may bounce off the clear filler. This is not the case with Belotero Balance. In this sense, it will fill a niche in the U.S. — a long-lasting filler for superficial wrinkles that can be administered close to the surface of the skin without causing a blue hue.
Another plus: If you are unhappy with the results of Belotero, or any hyaluronic acid fillers, injections of an enzyme called hyaluronidase can dissolve it, eliminating the effects.
There is no allergy test required with this injectable.

What Is The Difference Between Belotero Soft, Basic and Intense?
The four different types of Belotero:
The unique characteristics of Belotero enable it to address fine lines. Because it is quite thin and light, it can be injected superficially without the risk of lumpiness appearing on the skin’s surface. Often, patients would still see lines etched on their skin after Botox. Some doctors would inject excessive amounts of Botox, leaving the patient’s face looking frozen and stiff.
With the help of Belotero, physicians can use Botox in moderate amounts to relax facial muscles, allowing patients to retain their natural facial mobility and expressions. Belotero can then treat any fine lines remaining after the procedure.
Because Belotero does not elicit the Tyndall effect, it can be used for under eye depressions and wrinkles.
Also prior to the advent of Belotero, cosmetic solutions for horizontal neck creases were very limited. However, Belotero can be injected to provide substantial improvement for this issue, depending on how deep the creases are.
Belotero Injections: Are You a Candidate?
There is no one-size-fits-all filler. The best way to determine which filler or fillers are right for you is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon. These specialists are best able to match the injectable to your specific aesthetic needs.
Belotero Balance injections take 15 to 30 minutes and may involve some minor discomfort. Expect some redness, swelling and bruising that will typically resolve in a week. The results are immediate. Belotero results last six to 12 months.
Belotero Injections will likely cost about £250.00 per syringe, making it comparable to other fillers on the market. The number of injections required varies based on the type, quantity and location of wrinkles or folds. Make sure you get a complete estimate before agreeing to the treatment.
