What is Belotero®?

Wrinkles are folds in the skin that vary from fine lines to moderate and more severe creases on the face. Nutrition, environmental factors (such as smoking), and genetics all play a role in the loss of collagen and the thinning of the skin’s dermal layer. This leads to a loss of elasticity and the formation of creases in the skin.

Volume from the upper part of the face and cheeks falls with time due to gravity and settles in the jawline, creating jowls and accentuating the smile lines (nasolabial folds). This results in a gaunt and tired appearance.

Belotero Balance® is a versatile hyaluronic acid based filler specifically designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your unique facial contours. It softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural looking results.

How It Works

As we age, the skin loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural support structures (such as hyaluronic acid) diminish, resulting in lines and wrinkles.
Belotero® is made of hyaluronic acid which is a natural component of your skin. It binds to water to plump and fill in wrinkles and folds, thus allowing for immediate and smooth correction.
Belotero® is different than other hyaluronic acid fillers due to its unique manufacturing process that creates a soft, cohesive gel which enables it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. It’s strong enough to handle deep areas such as the nasolabial folds, yet soft enough to treat delicate areas such as the vertical lip lines.

Who is a candidate for Belotero®?

Any healthy woman or man who wants to alleviate aging lines and wrinkles.

What areas can be treated?

Belotero® immediately reduces the appearance of wrinkles and folds. It can also be used to treat:

  • Vertical lip lines
  • Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines
  • Chin wrinkle

How long does Belotero® last?

Results are clinically proven to last from 6-12 months depending on the area treated, the amount of product used, and your body’s ability to break down the product.

What’s the difference between Juvéderm® and Belotero®?

Both are made of hyaluronic acid, however the properties are different. Belotero is softer and less viscous which is good for fine lines or delicate areas. Juvéderm® is better for areas that need stronger lifts such as deep wrinkles around the nose and mouth.

Can other fillers be used with Belotero®?

Other fillers such as Juvéderm, Radiesse and Voluma have unique cohesive properties and densities. They can be used in layers to fill more superficial lines and wrinkles.

Other Treatments That Lift and Tighten Sagging Skin

Fillers address volume loss and wrinkles, but can be combined with skin tightening, lifting and resurfacing treatments such as Ultherapy, Thermage, Fractional CO2, Fraxel, MicroPen, and PRP for better results.


Before & After Photos

This female patient was concerned about the dark under eye areas and how tired she looked. She had Belotero in her tear trough area and now looks refreshed! She is very happy with her results.
This male patient was concerned with the deep creases in his under eye area and looking haggard or tired when he was feeling the opposite. He had Radiesse and Belotero in his under eye and tear trough area – the results are amazing! He says, ” As we age and time goes by, sometimes we men do not really understand that there are options for keeping our ‘younger looking’ face. Dr. Nowak’s artistic hand has helped me tremendously. My eyes are settling in and I look and feel so much better about myself! I am forever grateful. THANK YOU.”
