What is Belotero Balance?
When we're young, we have supple and smooth skin because of natural elasticity and an abundance of collagen and elastin. But as we age, our skin loses elasticity and firmness as these natural vitamins become depleted, which leads to visible symptoms of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. At Renuvia Medical Center in New Port Richey, FL, Dr. Arthur Schlyer provides a variety of aesthetic and skincare services like Belotero Balance wrinkle filler. Belotero treatments are FDA approved to repair moderate to severe lines and wrinkles of the face, including persistent, etched lines and the nasolabial folds near your mouth. A minimally invasive alternative, Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that helps to give you a natural, rejuvenated appearance.
Belotero Balance treatments are wonderful if you want to correct the look of fine to deep facial folds, lines, and wrinkles without undergoing a surgical procedure. Belotero is especially great for lines around the lips and mouth, like the nasolabial folds. Before your treatment, you'll have a consultation with Dr. Schlyer to discuss your medical history, current medications, and known allergies to determine whether you're a good candidate for Belotero.
Our Injection Technique
Following your consultation, we will take you to one of our treatment rooms for your Belotero procedure. Belotero is injected with a very small needle, so many patients do not require topical or local anesthetic. However, if needed, an anesthetic is available on request to minimize discomfort. Before administering Belotero, Dr. Schlyer will mark your injection sites and clean your skin. The injections should take about 5 – 10 minutes to complete. We apply pressure after each injection to control any bleeding, but you may return to your daily activities after your appointment.
What to Expect
Once we have completed your Belotero injections, you may experience some mild bruising, swelling, or redness near the injection sites. These symptoms will fade naturally over the next week. For the next 24 hours, we also recommend not participating in strenuous activities, avoiding alcohol, and reducing excessive sun exposure. You will notice some immediate results after your Belotero treatment, which will continue developing over the next two weeks. Typically, Belotero results last around six months, so talk to Dr. Schlyer about scheduling your next appointment to enhance or maintain your results.
