How often do patients need to undergo injections of Belotero Balance?
Belotero Balance is a treatment that can provide patients with results for many months. In most cases, results will last approximately six to nine months in the average patient. We encourage patients to book routine visits with their dermatologist to analyze the results of the injectables and to provide additional injections as needed to maintain the results and slow the overall signs of aging. Most of our patients who are on a routine with Belotero Balance injections see our dermatologists every six months for maintenance appointments to keep their skin looking youthful and beautiful!
Can Belotero Balance be combined with other treatments?
For patients seeking a “liquid facelift,” it is essential that they learn about other injectables that can be used on the facial area at the same time. Some patients have injections of Belotero Balance in conjunction with neuromodulators and collagen stimulators to offer a more complete improvement of the facial area. This can be discussed with our professionals during a consultation appointment.
What should I expect during my Belotero Balance appointment?
First, patients need to book a consultation appointment. During this visit, our professionals will evaluate the patient’s facial area and discuss their unique needs. This is the time for our professionals to determine if patients will benefit from injections of Belotero Balance. Once it has been determined that this is the best solution for an individual, then another appointment is made for the injections. Patients arrive at the dermatology office to complete paperwork prior to getting relaxed in the treatment chair in our office. Our professionals evaluate the areas of concern, and then provide the injections. These injections can cause mild discomfort but are well-tolerated by most patients. We encourage patients to ask questions about what they can expect, and to discuss aftercare instructions.
How should I care for my skin after my treatment?
Belotero Balance is a minimally-invasive treatment that is done right in our dermatology office. We find that many patients can get right back to their daily routine without interruptions. Patients may experience some redness and itching at the injection site and swelling can occur but is often minor. Women are pleased to find out that they can use cosmetics on their skin immediately following treatment to enhance their appearance and disguise any redness that may detract from their appearance. Patients should always be using sunscreen on the skin that is formulated with an SPF of 30 or more to protect skin from the elements and reduce the risk of developing skin cancer in the future. Gentle cleansers and moisturizers can be used on the skin to keep it clean and free from dirt and oils.

How long are treatment sessions?
Treatments involving Belotero Balance are often fast! Patients who attend their Belotero Balance injections appointment will find that they are completed in about five to ten minutes. Our doctors plan out the areas in which the injections need to be made to ensure great results. We speak to patients during their consultation appointment regarding the results they want to achieve, and then perform the injections.

How long do Belotero Balance treatments last?
Patients who undergo Belotero Balance will find that the results will last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, depending on the area being treated and how the body responds and absorbs the injectable. At Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics, we encourage patients to come back in six months for maintenance injections which can keep the results going for longer. There is no way to completely stop the process of aging, but with the use of dermal fillers and other injectables in our practice, the signs can be reduced and slowed.
What alternatives are available?
Belotero Balance is not for everyone. However, we can evaluate each patient and help them make a knowledgeable decision regarding the injectables used to enhance their skin. Our doctors work closely with patients to evaluate them and advise them as to the best treatments for their needs. If patients are not appropriate for Belotero Balance, other cosmetic injectables may be recommended such as collagen stimulators and neuromodulators. For patients who have severe skin laxity, our team may refer them to a plastic surgeon. While plastic surgery is often the last resort, it may be best for patients who are faced with severe lines and wrinkles that cannot be improved with treatments such as Belotero Balance. We work directly with several plastic surgeons in the community and can make a knowledgeable referral to a professional we already know and trust.
