What is Belotero Balance®?
Your face may have been supple and smooth years ago because of natural resilience and an abundance of collagen and elastin stored in your body. As you get older, your skin loses elasticity and firmness as these natural nutrients begin to deplete, which causes noticeable symptoms of aging such as facial lines and wrinkles. At Sereno Santé in Los Gatos, CA, Dr. Maia Chakerian offers several aesthetic and medical dermatology treatments, such as BELOTERO BALANCE® dermal filler. BELOTERO is approved by the FDA to repair fine to deep lines and wrinkles around the face, including persistent, deep-seated lines as well as the nasolabial folds near your mouth. A fantastic nonsurgical alternative, BELOTERO is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that helps you receive a rejuvenated, natural appearance.

am i a Good candidate For BELOTERO BALANCE?
BELOTERO injections are beneficial if you hope to improve the look of moderate to severe facial lines, wrinkles, and folds without opting for a surgical procedure. BELOTERO is especially great for addressing lines around the mouth, such as the nasolabial folds. Prior to the procedure, Dr. Chakerian will meet with you during a consultation to review your current medications, known allergies, and medical history to determine if you are an ideal candidate for BELOTERO.
how are BELOTERO BALANCE injections performed?
At the end of your consultation, you will be taken to our procedure room to receive your BELOTERO treatment. BELOTERO is injected with a very small needle, so many patients do not require a numbing cream or local anesthesia, but it can be requested during your consultation for greater comfort. The injection sites will be cleaned and prepared before the treatment is injected in several quick applications. Dr. Chakerian will apply pressure after each injection for a few minutes to control any minor bleeding, but then you are free to leave and resume your normal activities.
What can i expect after My Injections?
Following your BELOTERO injections at Sereno Santé, you might have some mild swelling, redness, or bruising near the injection sites — these symptoms will fade in the coming days. You will notice some immediate results after your treatment that will continue developing in the weeks following the procedure. The results of BELOTERO typically last around six months, so speak with Dr. Chakerian about how touch-ups and repeat treatments can help you maintain lasting results.

How does BELOTERO BALANCE work?
There is a wide range of great injectable fillers to choose from today, each with its own distinct uses. While several filler products made up of hyaluronic acid exist, BELOTERO works rather differently to reach the layers under the skin to address mild to severe facial lines and folds. The specifics of various hyaluronic filler injections could be reviewed when you come in for the first visit.
Is BELOTERO BALANCE safe?
Yes, it is. BELOTERO is an FDA-approved treatment that has gone through extensive tests to verify its utility and safety. It has been in use on the aesthetic market for a long time and is in high demand among both men and women. It is an especially ideal treatment for individuals who would like to reduce creases or laugh lines.
How many injections will I need?
The number of sessions needed to attain optimal results will vary from one person to another. In most cases, BELOTERO results will appear almost immediately and generally persist as long as six months to one year. In general, the majority of individuals come to our office 2 – 3 times annually to receive additional treatments.
Should I choose BELOTERO BALANCE or BOTOX®?
When you want to minimize the appearance of Crow's feet and creases without needing to have an invasive procedure such as a facelift, then an injectable filler might be the ideal procedure. Though both BELOTERO and BOTOX work to diminish the look of fine lines, they function differently. BOTOX momentarily locks the underlying facial muscles for a smoother appearance, while fillers employ a gel-based formula to treat wrinkles.
