Even though people may be young at heart, lines and wrinkles may leave them looking much older than they feel. The lines and wrinkles around the mouth in particular can leave a person looking tired and concerned. Thankfully, there are plenty of options to eliminate unwanted lines and wrinkles, and many of these options do not involve facial cosmetic surgery. BELOTERO BALANCE® injections from our Philadelphia, PA plastic surgeons can result in a younger and more refreshed appearance.
BELOTERO BALANCE® Candidates
BELOTERO BALANCE® can be performed on adults of any age who worry about lines, wrinkles, and other signs of advanced age. BELOTERO BALANCE® is an FDA-approved option for people who experience the following lines and wrinkles associated with the aging process:
- Nasolabial folds
- Vertical lip lines
- Smile lines
- Corner lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Marionette lines
During the consultation, a plastic surgeon can determine if BELOTERO BALANCE® injections are ideal for a patient or if another kind of cosmetic injectable or non-surgical therapy would be ideal. This helps prevent patients from experiencing allergic reactions and other adverse side effects and complications.
BELOTERO BALANCE® Procedure
The BELOTERO BALANCE® procedure is quick and straightforward, performed in a doctor's office rather than a surgical suite. A surgeon makes deliberate BELOTERO BALANCE® injections around the problem areas of the mouth and lower face. The added volume is immediately apparent. The whole injection therapy process typically takes about 20 minutes.
For optimal results, many patients will require a few BELOTERO BALANCE® injections. This helps smooth out the skin and address finer lines and wrinkles that remain following the initial treatment.
BELOTERO BALANCE® Recovery
BELOTERO BALANCE® involves little to no downtime after the injections have been administered. Patients need not take time off work in most cases. In fact, most patients are able to resume their normal day-to-day activities after BELOTERO BALANCE® injections have been administered. Avoiding sun exposure, exercise, and alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours after the injections tends to help with the recovery process.
Keep in mind that patients and their needs vary. During the consultation process, you will receive specific instructions related to proper care after you have undergone BELOTERO BALANCE® injection treatment.
BELOTERO BALANCE® Side Effects
Common side effects of BELOTERO BALANCE® injections may include swelling, bruising, irritation, itchiness, redness, and tenderness around the injection site. This is normal, and many people experience these issues following the use of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. In the vast majority of cases, these side effects resolve on their own after a week or so. Patients who notice no change in BELOTERO BALANCE® side effects after seven days should speak with their surgeon as soon as possible.
BELOTERO BALANCE® Results
In general, the results of BELOTERO BALANCE® injections last approximately six months, and sometimes longer. Patients note that they look considerably younger thanks to their cosmetic injection therapy. The results of the dermal filler therapy look and feel natural, meaning that others will not notice that you've undergone a non-invasive cosmetic procedure.
