Belotero Balance Product Specifications
Belotero Balance is a colorless, viscoelastic, non-pyrogenic, non-animal-derived, and cross-linked hyaluronic acid filler in a physiological phosphate buffer. It was created to increase skin tissue volume; fill lines, wrinkles and scars; and improve the overall skin texture of the face. Also available is a version of this product that comes with lidocaine to ease patient’s discomfort during the injection process. The active ingredient in this treatment, hyaluronic acid, closely resembles natural hyaluronic acid present in the body, making it wholly biodegradable. The injection of this facial filler creates immediate and non-permanent results ranging from wrinkle correction to improved facial contours.
What Belotero Balance is formulated to do
Belotero Balance is mainly indicated for dermal tissue augmentation and wrinkle correction. Through the use of innovative technology known as Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM), Belotero Balance HA’s has a monophasic gel texture that has excellent elasticity. Furthermore, the patented dynamic reticulation process used in this product makes this gel implant cohesive and easy to inject through needles with small diameters.
Belotero dermal fillers, including this one, work by replacing lost hyaluronic acid in the skin. Specifically-speaking, the ability of this implant to augment tissues comes from the mechanical behavior of HA gel, which involves lifting up the skin and replenishing hydration. As HA binds to water molecules in the dermis, lines, furrows, and creases are temporary filled.
Merz Aesthetics, a division of Merz Pharmaceuticals GmbH, manufactures this product.
This product originates from Frankfurt, Germany.
