Nothing takes more of a toll on your skin than the aging process. Over time, fine lines and wrinkles begin to creep in, which can sometimes make you look older than you actually feel. Many people turn to cosmetic surgery to help turn back the clock on aging skin, while others seek a less invasive surgery that requires little downtime. Fortunately, a treatment is now available for those who do not wish to undergo risky surgery that can have side effects. Belotero Balance® is such a treatment.
What is Belotero Balance®?
Belotero Balance® is known as a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is delivered into skin tissue. Other fillers are specially formulated to add facial volume, but this treatment was designed specifically to treat fine lines and wrinkles, such as those vertical lines that often appear around the lips.
Why Skin Ages
One of the main reasons why skin gradually loses volume, and wrinkles begin appearing, is that the body begins producing less of certain substances that lend resilience and volume to the skin. One of these special substances is called hyaluronic acid. This substance is naturally produced by our bodies, and in far greater amounts when we are young. Hyaluronic acid has a special property; it has an affinity for water molecules. In fact, it can attract and hold many times its own weight in water. In turn, this creates a volumizing effect for the skin and soft tissues. As our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, skin cells cannot hold as much water. They become somewhat dehydrated and less resilient to the damaging effects of the environment and the aging process.
Belotero Balance® Restores Lost Hyaluronic Acid
Belotero Balance® treatments can partially or completely reverse the aging process, leading to skin that is plumper and more resilient. Fine lines and wrinkles can be minimized or even eliminated with Belotero Balance® injections.
How Long Does a Belotero Balance® Treatment Take?
After receiving your medical history, the product will be injected into the treatment area. Treatments are rapid, normally taking about half an hour. In fact, many people choose to have their Belotero Balance® treatment over their lunch hour and can return to work immediately.
How Long Will My Belotero Balance® Treatment Last?
One reason many people choose Belotero Balance® to treat fine lines and wrinkles is that the results are long-lasting. Patients typically maintain their results from 9 to 18 months, and the results are immediately noticeable. The length of time your results will last depends upon factors like your age, lifestyle and skin type.
