Yes, Belotero Balance is a safe filler for the lips. It usually last 3-6 months. My preferred fillers for the lips are Juvederm Ultra and Volbella as they tend to last longer then Belotero.

Thank you for your inquiry. Belotero typically lasts 6 to 9 months (on some occasions longer depending on the amount injected) Bumps can occur but it is rare. If you do experience bumps or lumps post injection, it is nothing to be concerned about. Schedule a post op appointment with your injector and either a small massage or solvent can be used. Be sure you always see a board certified plastic surgeon for best results.

Belotero works very well for the lips. The result depends on whether you have a skilled injector. belotero usually lasts around 6 months.

Belotero balance is a great choice for lips. It can cause some lumps that will go away but  please make sure to have a qualified medical professional inject you. It is meant to smooth out the appearance of fine lines. Belotero can last 6-9 months.

Belotero Balance is definitely a safe choice when it comes to injecting the lips. While there are always associated risks with any filler such as causing lumps, I personally have not experienced this as being an issue with Belotero. The source of complications with lip filler can often be a result of the injector's technique so always be sure that you are being treated by a qualified medical professional with aesthetic experience. Belotero Balance has a FDA approval for the smoothing out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as temporarily adding volume for up to 6 months. I've seen it last on average 4-6 months. I really enjoy using Belotero for the lips because it is so natural looking. While reinjection is typically necessary sooner than you might be used to with some other fillers used in the lips, it's natural appearance makes it a huge plus.

Belotero creates an elegant finishing touch to your appearance, filling small gaps beneath the skin’s surface and improving the appearance of stubborn etched-in smile lines and vertical lip lines above and around the lips. When administered properly Belotero does not cause lumps and only produces natural looking results.

Results with Belotero will vary depending where on the face it is injected. For example, under eyes will last a year +. It is a great product for treating delicate thin skinned areas for volumization and fine lines. I would see an expert.

Belatro for the Lips

Hi and thank you for sharing your question here! Belotero is a hyaluronic  acid filler and it is can be used safely in the lips. However, it is very thin and it lasts for a relatively short time and does not make the lips that much full and pouty. It is a good choice for fine lines around the mouth or for hollows and dark circles under the eyes but if your goal is fuller lips, other hyaluronic acid fillers such as various types of Juvederm and Restylane Lyft are preferred. I hope it helps and good luck!

Belotero: No Lumps or Clumps!

Belotero, although new to the United States, has been used in Canada and Europe extensively.  In fact, like the Juvederm family of products, there are a wide variety of Belotero fillers.  Unfortunately, only Belotero Balance is offered in the United States. After studying the physical properties of a number of fillers, I have found that cohesivity is an important property that distinguishes the Belotero line.  Belotero Balance has been used in lips, fine lines, and delicate areas like tear troughs.  My experience with this product has been very positive, and when used correctly, will not cause any lumpiness.  I highly recommend it, and use it extensively in my practice.
