Belotero is a naturally-occurring substance in your body.
Belotero specifically is made by a process called "bacterial fermentation," so it is derived from bacteria and not from animals. It is a little more "liquid" than other fillers, which are more firm. This allows me to use Belotero more closely to the surface of the skin, where it provides a "finishing touch" by smoothing away fine etched lines.
Belotero’s molecule is cross linked to better integrate into your skin and mold to your facial contours giving you immediate smooth and natural results that can last up to 9 months.
Consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see if this filler will work for your concerns.
How do they manufacture belotero balance?
In my practice I use it primarily in the lower lid/rim area. It's probably the most liquid consistency of the HA's, meaning least likely to form bumps in thin skinned areas like the eyes, or in superficial applications like very fine lines. But for other areas like lips, cheeks, nasolabial, and melolabial folds, I go with other options.
