Fine lines and wrinkles can make us look several years older than we are. Unfortunately, you can’t reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with over-the-counter skin care products alone. At Launa Stone in Calabasas, CA, we believe the best way to erase fine lines and wrinkles is with a dermal filler like Belotero.
What Is Belotero?
Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that essentially acts as an eraser for fine lines and wrinkles on the face, particularly around the nose and the mouth. Sometimes called a “starter filler”, this treatment has a unique gel construction that allows the gel formula to settle lightly within the skin, making it a treatment that produces exceptionally natural-looking results.

How Does This Treatment Work?
Like any other dermal filler, the treatment process for this filler is very simple. A series of injections will be made into various areas of your skin where the visible signs of aging are most apparent. A thin, ultra-fine needle will deliver a small amount of filler directly to the tissue beneath fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin.
As the filler is injected into the sub-dermal tissues, the superficial layer of your skin will increase in volume, which “erases” the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid in this filler will bind to water with in your skin; as more water is attracted to the areas where the filler has been injected, the texture of your skin will continue to improve. You can generally complete this treatment in about 30 minutes.
Where Can This Treatment Be Used?
This particular dermal filler was first used on the nasolabial area, or the lines around the nose and the mouth. However, this filler is uniquely versatile for mild to moderate age-related concerns, so patients can use this treatment on many areas of the face. Some of the most common areas to use this filler include:
- Horizontal forehead creases
- Drooping eyebrows
- Hollow cheeks
- Cheek contouring
- Smile lines
- Perioral lines
- Lipstick lines
- Lip contouring
- Thinning lips
- Marionette lines
The sheer versatility of this lightweight filler is one of the reasons why it is such a popular treatment among patients. Because this filler has a unique consistency and stability, it can easily correct various concerns, including on areas of the face where fillers may not be traditionally used. True to its namesake, this dermal filler restores balance to the volume of your skin so you can enjoy an all-over more youthful appearance.
When Will You See Results?
Patients generally see results from this filler within hours of the treatment. The gel formula of the filler immediately delivers artificial volume to the skin. As the filler settles into the sub-dermal layers of the skin, a process that may take two to three weeks, the results of the treatment will continue to improve. You may see faster results if you are younger, more hydrated, or your appearance concerns are mild.
How Long Do Results Last?
In general, this dermal filler can last for up to six months in most areas of the face, but other areas of the face may have longer-lasting results. For nasolabial folds, perioral lines, and lip contouring, you should expect results that last for half a year. For the treatment of hollow cheeks or cheek contouring, or if this filler is used in any area of the face that is not as mobile, your results can last for six to 12 months.
Because of the duration of this treatment, most patients scheduled touch-up appointments once or twice a year. Some patients also like to take measures to ensure their results last for as long as possible, which may include protecting themselves from sun damage and using skincare products that support collagen production.
Who Are Good Candidates?
People who have mild to moderate visible signs of aging are generally good candidates for this hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. If you have age-related concerns around the nose and mouth, or if you want to smooth the appearance of fine lines on multiple areas of the face with natural-looking results, this treatment is likely a good fit for your needs.
