Belotero Dermal Filler

What is Belotero Balance?

Belotero Balance is an FDA-approved dermal filler for injection into mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. Belotero is made of hyaluronic acid (HA) a natural component of skin. As we age we lose our naturally occurring HA. When injected, Belotero helps to replace our lost HA. It is uniquely formulated cohesive gel which is able to fill wrinkles and lines smoothly and immediately. Belotero Balance gel binds water in the skin to allow smooth correction and lasting results.
