Have you heard about Belotero, the latest entry into the facial fillers line-up? It can get confusing with all the players in the hyaluronic acid fillers field, so we thought we might help clear up some of the confusion.

The much welcomed Belotero Balance is now available, at Wink Medical. It represents a new generation of dermal fillers. Belotero is similar to other fillers, in that it is a hyaluronic acid filler, a substance that’s naturally found in the skin. Adding volume to the face with Belotero and minimizing lines and wrinkles, it promises to rejuvenate the face.

What sets it apart from other HA fillers is that unlike the older hyaluronic acid fillers, Belotero Balance appears to add volume without the risk of lumps and bumps under the skin. Belotero has a very soft consistency which integrates extremely well with existing skin tissue. In addition, Belotero Balance doesn’t seem to cause the under-the-skin “blue tinting” that may occurs with other fillers when they are placed too superficial in a wrinkle or fold, such as those around the eyes.

Belotero Balance has been safely and effectively used in Europe and elsewhere around the world for several years. It received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval for the treatment of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds in November 2011.

The main difference between Belotero and some of the other HA fillers, is that it is designed to treat superficial facial lines and moderate to severe wrinkles that are closer to the surface of the skin.
