If laugh lines are causing you to feel self-conscious about your appearance, there is a new treatment available that will make your day! Belotero Balance is another type of injectable offered by The Med Spa at Southwest Plastic Surgery of El Paso that is used to smooth and soften the creases and lines that run between your nose and outer lips. Belotero Balance is typically reserved for moderate to severe noticeability, such as those associated with aging in both women and men. Results typically last six to eight months or longer, whereupon the patient may decide to have the injectable reapplied.

What Makes Belotero Balance so Unique Compared to Other Wrinkle Fillers?

Unlike Botox, Belotero Balance does not make the skin “stiff” or immobile. It fills the wrinkles and folds, yet maintaining the skin’s natural appearance and movement, making it feel and look very graceful and natural. People may wonder why you look so radiant, but they will never be able to tell that you have had Belotero Balance applied by a doctor.


Another differentiation between Belotero Balance and other fillers is that it is created with a hyaluronic acid that features a soft, buttery gel which easily integrates within the skin facial tissue. HA1 is also a natural element found within your own skin, making it ideal for correction of fine lines and wrinkles because it clings easily with the skin’s own water stores. Upon injection, the filler instantly fills the fine lines or wrinkles and subsequently softens, smoothens and reduces the appearance of serious creases.

Belotero Balance also does not make you wait to see results; you will notice immediate improvements in the lip lines and etched-in creases around your lips and inner cheeks where the skin is frequently pulled out from smiling.

What to Expect With Belotero Balance

Although this injectable filler is versatile enough to work into the laugh lines around your mouth – also known as nasolabial folds – it is best used for treating vertical lip lines and etched in creases caused by smiling. These lines typically appear just above and around the lips, and as people age, they become more pronounced.

Individual results vary, so the length of time before reapplication is needed will also depend on how much movement you experience. Smiling, talking, eating and other common facial gestures will not appear contrived; they will feel and look natural.
