Dermal fillers are substances that when injected into parts of the body (used mostly in the face) augment areas that have experienced a loss of volume and softens lines and wrinkles. Fillers can be done quickly, easily and can dramatically improve a person’s look.
There are many types of fillers:
Hyaluronic based fillers – such as Juvederm & Restylane which are temporary and can be reversed with a substance called hyaluronidase. There are semi permanent fillers that are usually synthetic and are long lasting but cannot be reversed, such as Bellafill & Sculpture. Collagen based fillers, such as Cosmoderm & Zyderm are either derived from cows or made synthetically. There are fillers made of one’s own fat. The fat is surgically removed from different parts of the body, ultra-filtered and then injected into the areas of the face or body with volume loss. The fat is long lasting but touch treatments are needed from time to time.
Although Platelet Rich Plasma is not considered a true dermal filler, it can be used to initially temporarily fill folds and wrinkles and long term helps the synthesis of collagen.
Fillers are very safe procedures, however there could be bleeding, bruising, redness at the site of the injection as well as swelling after the treatment is done, although very rare, nodule formation and allergic reactions can also occur. Rarely inadvertent injection of fillers in a blood vessel can have serious consequences such as skin necrosis, blindness and strokes.
Fillers should only be performed in a medical setting by a qualified health care provider to do cosmetic injections.

Information on Belotero:
If you are not happy with the lines around your nose and mouth, you are not alone. Millions of people put up with deep creases in this prominent region of the face. You don’t have to be like other people out there. You can soften those lines with Belotero Balance ®
Belotero Balance ® is a dermal filler that is specially designed to integrate into your skin. So it actually molds to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it can soften lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. The results appear smooth and natural.
The unique properties of Belotero Balance ® Dermal Filler allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).
What is the difference between Belotero Balance ® Dermal Filler and other fillers?
Belotero Balance ® Dermal Filler is injected into the skin in a simple, quick procedure using a fine gauge needle that can even be done over your lunch hour. Once injected, it instantly goes to work in smoothing the lines and wrinkles in your face.
How long does it last?
Individual results may vary, but Belotero Balance ® Dermal Filler may last about 6 months or more.
