How It Works
It Works Within Your Skin
One of the most important factors in choosing a filler treatment is understanding how it works. Over time, our skin begins to lose naturally occurring components such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA), leaving skin more prone to develop etched-in lines and wrinkles.1-3
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler that completely integrates into the skin tissue.2,3 While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, BELOTERO BALANCE® specifically treats moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips.4
Only BELOTERO BALANCE® is created using the proprietary Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM) process5:
- Produces a smooth, flexible gel
- Blends into the natural structure of your skin
- Gently fills stubborn etched-in lines and wrinkles
BELOTERO BALANCE® 2,4:

What is the most important information I should know about BELOTERO BALANCE®?
Introduction of BELOTERO BALANCE® into the vasculature may lead to embolization, occlusion of the vessels, ischemia, or infarction. Take extra care when injecting soft tissue fillers, for example inject the product slowly and apply the least amount of pressure necessary. Rare but serious adverse events associated with the intravascular injection of soft tissue fillers in the face have been reported and include temporary or permanent vision impairment, blindness, cerebral ischemia or cerebral hemorrhage, leading to stroke, skin necrosis, and damage to underlying facial structures. Immediately stop the injection if a patient exhibits any of the following symptoms, including changes in vision, signs of a stroke, blanching of the skin, or unusual pain during or shortly after the procedure. Patients should receive prompt medical attention and possibly evaluation by an appropriate health care practitioner specialist should an intravascular injection occur.
As with all events that involve an injection through the skin, there is a risk of infection. Laser treatments or chemical peels or any other treatments that affect the skin can increase the risk of infection. Do not use BELOTERO BALANCE® if you have a skin inflammation or a skin infection. Do not use until the infection is healed.
Patients getting BELOTERO BALANCE® may have an injection site reaction. These reactions can include inflammation and usually last less than seven days.
For approximately 24 hours after treatment, avoid:
- strenuous activity
- extensive sun or heat exposure
- aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
- alcoholic beverages
Exposure to any of the above can cause temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection site.
