The newest addition to the group of fillers used to improve wrinkles is Belotero Balance and it is now available for patients in the USA. Belotero is similar to Restylane and Juvederm (two of the most popular wrinkle fillers) and works by replacing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring substance in our bodies, that is lost in our skin over time.
While not permanent, Belotero Balance will last about 6 months and is FDA approved for improving the nasolabial folds (the folds in the skin that run from the nostril to the corner of the lips). Touch-up treatments may be useful 2 weeks after the first treatment.

“Our patients have been very happy with the results of Belotero when used for fine lines and wrinkles, particularly those around the lips. The injections are easy and the improvements are seen immediately. Belotero will be a great addition to our options to improve facial aging.”
