What is BELOTERO BALANCE®?
BELOTERO BALANCE is a prescription injection that is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate to- severe nasolabial folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth). Belotero is an injectable dermal filler with a hyaluronic acid base. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in your skin. It binds with water, which helps to plump up your skin and make it appear smoother. Over time, your body absorbs the hyaluronic acid in Belotero.
Belotero was originally approved by the FDA in 2011 to fill in moderate to severe nasolabial folds, also called laugh lines. However, the company has since expanded its line of products to include fillers of different consistencies for treating different types of lines.
For example, Belotero Soft is used for very fine lines, while Belotero Volume is used to restore volume and plump up the cheeks, nose, and lips.
Belotero is safe for most people. However, its safety for people under the age of 18 or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding is unknown. You should also avoid Belotero if you have a history of severe or multiple allergies, especially to Gram-positive proteins.
Based on clinical evidence, Belotero results can last from 6 to 12 months, depending on the product used.
- Belotero Balance and Belotero Basic, for subtle to moderate lines and lip enhancement, can last up to 6 months Trusted Source.
- Belotero Soft, for fine lines and lip enhancement, lasts up to one year.
- Belotero Intense, for deep and severe lines and lip volume, lasts up to one year.
- Belotero Volume, for restoring volume to the cheeks and temples, lasts up to 18 months.
Who is a good candidate?

Who is Belotero right for?
Belotero is safe for most people. People with severe or multiple allergies, a history of anaphylaxis, or allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins shouldn’t have this treatment, however.
What Is The BELOTERO Range?
