Over time, your skin loses elasticity. This process, influenced by genetics and environmental factors such as sun exposure, can lead to the development of lines and folds. One of the areas where fine lines are most annoying to many women is above the lip. Clients often tell me that they would like to get rid of the fine lines above their lip, but they do not want a filler that will make this area look too full. They do not want the “duck-look”.
Traditional fillers are volumizers. They reduce the lines by immediately restoring volume to the subdermis like Juvaderm®️, and some by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen like Radiesse®️. These fillers are excellent for restoring volume to the cheeks which lifts the lower face and reduces wrinkles. They can also be used to soften nasolabial folds and jowls by restoring lost collagen and can even be used in the temples to fill out the forehead. If, however, the wrinkle is fine and very superficial, a more natural solution is a filler that can be placed directly into the dermis to literally FILL THE LINE without creating fullness or an unnatural look.
Belotero Balance®️ is a hyaluronic acid filler that was created for this purpose, and blends into the dermis for a natural look. It has a unique Dynamic Cross-Linking Technology (DCLT) to create a smooth, cohesive gel that integrates easily to fill etched-in lines without adding volume. Because of its unique DCLT, it is able to retain its strength and integrity and allows the skin around the mouth to move naturally with speech and expression without added fullness.
Belotero Balance®️ is made from hyaluronic acid, a natural product found in the body and is safe. Most patients see results lasting from 12 to 18 months or longer. Potential complications include swelling, bruising, redness, pain, hardness and itching. More serious complications are uncommon.
