“Human perception lives in the smallest detail – nuance is everything!”

BELOTERO BALANCE® is a newly introduced dermal filler offered at our Minneapolis-St. Paul-area practice that fills a very important niche in advanced injectable treatments: very fine lines. BELOTERO BALANCE® is a unique gel filler made of a very smooth hyaluronic acid gel that is meant to be place in the uppermost layer of the skin.

Previous gel fillers could potentially leave a blue streak or small ridge if injected superficially in the skin when trying to correct the smallest line or crease. Because BELOTERO BALANCE® so smoothly intermingles with your own collagen, it can instantly plump the tiniest line or crease to give you that smooth, flawless look.

BELOTERO BALANCE® resolves vertical lipstick-lines, the fine lines that happen when you smile, and even crow’s feet. Even better is that BELOTERO BALANCE® lasts as long as current gel fillers (3-4 months or longer), which makes chasing fine lines and creases very manageable.

Enjoy the excitement and thrill of seeing line after line disappear instantly and delight you with the smooth skin of your youth.

“In clinical studies, 97% of patients showed a visible improvement after just one Belotero Balance treatment.”


BELOTERO BALANCE® is a new intelligently designed hyaluronic acid filler which causes visible softening in the very fines lines and crease in the skin resulting from aging. BELOTERO BALANCE® is made of the same dermal volumizing and moisturizing component of your skin, hyaluronic acid, but now so smooth and fine that it can go into the tiniest creases with confidence.

The secret of BELOTERO BALANCE® is a thin, smart hyaluronic acid which integrates smoothly with your own collagen, not just pushing it aside as with other fillers. The spreading nature of the product allows correction for filling around the eyes and fine wrinkles of the face without fear of lumpiness, one of the common problems with traditional gel fillers.

This makes BELOTERO BALANCE® the product of choice to correct sensitive, hard to fill areas, with the same staying power of traditional gel fillers. BELOTERO BALANCE® is also a winning choice for correcting the ‘lipstick lines” which have been the most difficult lines to treat with any other injectable filler.

Dr. Szachowicz is already using BELOTERO BALANCE® for filling acne and other scars, crow’s feet, chin lines, as well as those ‘smile lines’ in the cheek which seems to multiply with an increasing grin.


Because superficial lumpiness is rare with BELOTERO BALANCE®’s thin, spreading nature, almost any fine line or crease in the face can be instantly corrected. This is an in-office procedure.

BELOTERO BALANCE® fills an important niche in advanced injectable treatments.

With your customized treatment plan, BELOTERO BALANCE® treatments can be done simply, with immediate gratifying results.

Before and After Belotero

The most common areas of the face for treatment are:

  • Nasolabial lines and folds
  • Vertical “lipstick lines’ of the lips
  • Corners of the mouth and marionette lines
  • Smile lines of the cheeks
  • Crow’s feet and under the eyes
  • Acne scars
  • Chin creases and lines
  • Frown lines
  • Hands and décolletage
  • Bridge of nose


  • Effortless correction of fine lines
  • Immediate results
  • Quick, in-office treatments, with a duration comparable to traditional gel fillers
  • Able to treat more difficult areas including “lipstick lines” and the corners of the mouth
  • The product is FDA-approved from non-animal sources, so no skin test is required
  • Low risk of lumpiness or blue streaks showing through as with traditional gel fillers
  • Wide spectrum of treatment areas including acne scarring


BELOTERO BALANCE® is not indicated in patients with sever allergies. The most common side effects seen after injection were swelling. Redness, and hardening. More rare side effects include swelling which lasts longer, unevenness or firm- ness in the area injected and as with any injection, there may be a risk of infection. BELOTERO BALANCE® is not recommended in those under 18, or in women who are pregnant or breast-feeding. Avoidance of fish and plant oil supplements, aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (Advil, Motrin, etc.) helps to minimize any bruising. Rare immune reactions and circulation problems after injection are possible. All hyaluronic gel fillers can be dissolved (reversed) with an enzyme called hyaluronidase for added safety.
