Dermal Filler: Belotero Balance Dermal Filler is a cohesive and homogenous HA gel that quickly integrates into the skin, providing your patients with an even and smooth correction. Belotero Balance has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin. Therefore, the correct injection depth is crucial for obtaining optimal results for you and your patient. The versatility of injectables makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds, yet soft enough to treat vertical lip lines.
The Right Injection Depth for Optimal Results: Belotero Balance is indicated for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds.
Restylane® is an FDA approved gel that is injected into the skin, adding volume to the lips and filling wrinkles and folds in the skin.

What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
What is Restylane® made of?
Restylane® is the first cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is a crystal0clear gel called NASHA, or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is biodegradable and fully biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid.
Is Restylane® safe?
Yes. Restylane® has been used by dermatologists and plastic surgeons since 1996 worldwide. There is limited risk of animal-based transmission or allergic reaction. Restylane® is fully biocompatible and allergy testing is not required. Restylane® contains trace amounts of gram-positive bacterial proteins and should not be used by patients with a history of allergies to such material. After your treatment, you might have some redness or swelling. This will normally last less than seven days. Sunbathing and cold outdoor activities should be avoided until any redness or swelling disappear. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or under 18, you shouldn’t use Restylane®.
Can Restylane® be used anywhere on the face?
Restylane® has been used in more than 3 million treatments in over 60 countries to correct a variety of wrinkles. In the U.S. the FDA has approved Restylane for wrinkles and folds like the ones from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Your doctor will consult with you prior to your injection regarding common treatment areas.
How long does Restylane® last?
Restylane® is proven to deliver long-lasting results. Studies have shown that effects of Restylane® generally last for about six months. Restylane’s® stabilization technology helps maintain the cosmetic effect until the injected material is nearly gone.
How is Restylane® different from Dysport?
