Belotero® Balance and Radiesse®
Belotero® is the ideal option to help smooth stubborn lines and wrinkles. It is a prescription injection that will temporarily (for about 6 months) fill in and smooth folds and wrinkles around the nose and the corner of the mouth.
Radiesse® is a dermal filler for hand augmentation to correct volume loss in the back of the hands and for smoothing facial wrinkles such as nasolabial folds.
Ideal candidates include anyone looking to enhance their natural appearance by restoring volume to areas of the face that have lost volume over time (including stubborn wrinkles that BOTOX® or Xeomin® can not help). However, Belotero should not be used with patients who’ve had a history of severe allergies.
Belotero and Radiesse injections take approximately 20-40 minutes, making the injections the perfect non-surgical procedures to get on your lunch break. You may also choose to have the MHS nurse apply a topical or injectable anesthetic to numb the area prior to treatment. Both products target deep wrinkles as well as fine lines around the nose and lips. Additionally, Belotero is beneficial in filling in hollow tear troughs under the eyes.
Belotero is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring compound in your skin. It is a safe and effective method of adding volume to the skin and smoothing the skin’s surface. Once injected, Belotero binds to the water in your skin, helping to fill in lines and wrinkles. Once completed, our surgeons will provide you with an ice pack to apply to the injection area.
Radiesse is a dermal filler that works to stimulate the body’s own natural collagen formation, helping to fill in places on the skin that have lost volume over time. After treatment, the body metabolizes the injection, leaving behind only natural collagen that has formed. Results from Radiesse have been shown to last a year or more, meaning the injections’ results are both immediate and long-lasting.
Advantages of Belotero and Radiesse
• Natural looking results
• Last around 6-months or longer
• Fill in wrinkles, folds that other injectable can not do
