Belotero

Smoothing wrinkles and folds, filling in fine lines and adding volume is an artistry that requires balance.

Smoothing wrinkles and folds, filling in fine lines and adding volume is an artistry that requires balance. So it’s perfectly fitting that the latest FDA-approved filler has the word “balance” as part of its name. Belotero Balance® may be the newest name in the United States in dermal fillers, but it has been used in Europe for several years and comes from a familiar, trusted name – Merz Aesthetics, makers of Radiesse.

Smoothing wrinkles and folds, filling in fine lines and adding volume is an artistry that requires balance. So it’s perfectly fitting that the latest FDA-approved filler has the word “balance” as part of its name. Belotero Balance® may be the newest name in the United States in dermal fillers, but it has been used in Europe for several years and comes from a familiar, trusted name – Merz Aesthetics, makers of Radiesse.

“One of the advantages of Belotero is that it can be injected more superficially than other fillers to treat finer wrinkles and delicate areas such as around the eye,” said Dr. Timothy Jochen. “ Belotero is a great addition to our offering of facial fillers. With cosmetic procedures, it’s always about customizing treatments to what is best for the patient.”

Where is Belotero recommended?

Belotero Balance received FDA approval in November 2011 for the correction of severe to moderate facial wrinkles and has been available at Contour Dermatology since this past summer. Belotero comes in three concentrations which sound almost like a Starbucks order: Soft, Basic or Intense. The Soft formulation was designed for correction of superficial lines such as crow’s feet, frown lines between the brows and some lines around the mouth. Basic treats deeper lines around the mouth, the bridge of the nose and hands and décolletage. Intense is for deeper furrows such as the nasolabial folds and for augmenting cheeks and lips and is injected deeper into the skin.

How long does it last?

According to Merz Aesthetics, Belotero is reported to last 6 to 12 months. In clinical studies 66% of patients continued to show a visible improvement 9 months after a single treatment.

What’s different about Belotero?

Belotero Balance is a non-animal based monophasic hyaluronic acid (HA) double cross-linked gel that is produced using a patented Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM) process. As a cohesive gel with HA concentration, compared to HA particles suspended in a gel, it is a thinner solution that fills the dermal spaces more completely. This may lead to a smoother result with less risk for lumps and bumps.

According to an article published in the July 2012 issue of Dermatologic Surgery, a German study found the effectiveness of Restylane, Juvéderm and Belotero to be nearly equivalent, except in week four where Belotero stood out. A second German study, published in the European Journal of Dermatology showed a slight preference for Belotero over Restylane and a greater evenness among nasolabial fold treatment with Belotero at week four over Restylane. A U.S. study by Merz compared results of Belotero and Juvéderm for nasolabial fold treatment with an equal or better result among 40 patients.
