Nasolabial folds are the wrinkles that you may have noticed running from the side of your nose to the corner of the mouth. Why do they happen? Here are a few (very common) things that can cause them to become deeper and more visible:
- Excessive sun exposure
- Loss of skin elasticity (often due to aging)
- Weakening if facial muscles
- General use of the mouth (talking, eating, smiling, etc.)
- Laughing or frowning
Nasolabial folds are often called “smile” or “laugh lines,” and they are traditionally tough to treat. Many people try topical creams, but they aren’t usually effective.
But all hope is not lost! If you’re looking to restore your skin’s elasticity and erase those laugh lines for good, BELOTERO BALANCE® could be the option for you.
What Is BELOTERO BALANCE?
BELOTERO BALANCE is a prescription injection. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved it to treat moderate to severe nasolabial folds by smoothing them out and filling them in.
This injectable gel immediately improves the appearance of skin, smoothing out wrinkles and giving your face a natural and youthful appearance.
How Does BELOTERO BALANCE Work?
BELOTERO BALANCE uses a revolutionary technology called the Cohesive Polydense Matrix (CPM). It sounds complicated, but the work it does is simple!
CPM allows the gel of BELOTERO BALANCE to do three things:
- Integrate directly with your own skin tissue
- Evenly blend into your skin
- Smooth lines and wrinkles
The result is youthfulness restored!
CPM is a technology owned and used only by BELOTERO BALANCE. The injectable gel is infused with hyaluronic acid, which is a natural structural component of skin. The hyaluronic acid retains moisture and plumps up your skin, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles without making your skin look too tight or unnatural.
What Can I Expect from My BELOTERO BALANCE Treatment?
Before having a BELOTERO BALANCE treatment, you’ll meet with Dr. Obaid to discuss a few things:
- The concerns you have about your “laugh lines”
- The expectations you have for treatment
If Dr. Obaid determines that BELOTERO BALANCE is the ideal treatment for your particular concerns, he’ll talk you through the procedure, including what you can expect and how to properly treat your skin following treatment for maximum results.
The treatment itself is quick and won’t last longer than a few minutes. You’ll immediately notice results after the injection, and your results will only continue to improve as the gel does its work.
What Is the Recovery Time for BELOTERO BALANCE?
One of the main draws of BELOTERO BALANCE for the treatment of etched-in wrinkles around the mouth is its quick recovery time! You should see immediate and noticeable results right after your injections. You can return to non-strenuous, day-to-day activities immediately.
For 24 hours following a BELOTERO BALANCE treatment, you should avoid a few simple things:
- Strenuous activity
- Excessive exposure to the sun or heat
- Taking aspirin or any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs – these may cause temporary redness, itching, or swelling at the injection site.
How Long Does BELOTERO BALANCE Last?
BELOTERO BALANCE is a long-term solution for moderate to severe nasolabial folds. It is clinically proven to last up to six months for the majority of patients. In many cases, it can last even longer.
Note that due to the active nature (talking, laughing, eating) of the areas that BELOTERO BALANCE treats, more frequent treatments may be necessary to maintain results.
Is BELOTERO BALANCE Safe?
BELOTERO BALANCE is FDA-approved. It has been clinically proven to be a safe and effective treatment for moderate to deep nasolabial folds and lines around the mouth.
Who Is the Ideal Candidate for BELOTERO BALANCE?
BELOTERO BALANCE is an ideal treatment solution for most patients with concerns about “laugh lines.” However, if you have a history of severe allergies or anaphylaxis, you may need to discuss alternative treatment options with Dr. Obaid.
