What is the most important information I should know about BELOTERO BALANCE®?
Introduction of BELOTERO BALANCE® into the vasculature may lead to embolization, occlusion of the vessels, ischemia, or infarction. Take extra care when injecting soft tissue fillers, for example inject the product slowly and apply the least amount of pressure necessary. Rare but serious adverse events associated with the intravascular injection of soft tissue fillers in the face have been reported and include temporary or permanent vision impairment, blindness, cerebral ischemia or cerebral hemorrhage, leading to stroke, skin necrosis, and damage to underlying facial structures. Immediately stop the injection if a patient exhibits any of the following symptoms, including changes in vision, signs of a stroke, blanching of the skin, or unusual pain during or shortly after the procedure. Patients should receive prompt medical attention and possibly evaluation by an appropriate health care practitioner specialist should an intravascular injection occur.
As with all events that involve an injection through the skin, there is a risk of infection. Laser treatments or chemical peels or any other treatments that affect the skin can increase the risk of infection. Do not use BELOTERO BALANCE® if you have a skin inflammation or a skin infection. Do not use until the infection is healed.
Patients getting BELOTERO BALANCE® may have an injection site reaction. These reactions can include inflammation and usually last less than seven days. For approximately 24 hours after treatment, avoid:

What should I tell my doctor before injections with BELOTERO BALANCE?

These medicines may put you at an increased risk of bruising or bleeding at the treatment site. Tell your doctor if you have a skin reaction like cold sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, hives, or an infection. Treatment with BELOTERO BALANCE® should be delayed until the reaction goes away. Tell your doctor if you are taking medicines that affect your immune system.
Restylane® was the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler specifically designed to treat moderate facial wrinkles and folds.
Restylane® is an injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body that attracts and binds water molecules to add volume. When injected into the face, results are instant, adding volume to restore skin contours for a more youthful appearance.
Restylane® replaces lost volume to smooth away wrinkles and define facial contours providing immediate results. Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own hyaluronic acid. Restylane can be used to visibly reduce moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds for a more youthful appearance.
Is it safe?
Restylane® is the world's most studied wrinkle filler with more than a decade of use. With over 80 clinical publications and more than 20 million treatments worldwide, Restylane products have an unparalleled legacy and a well-defined safety profile.
Is it Natural?
Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid that closely resembles your body’s own hyaluronic acid, giving a natural-looking result. Biocompatible with the human body, Restylane products are eventually broken down naturally.
Restylane is not a toxin and does not affect facial expression or movement. Restylane is also non-permanent.
How long does Restylane® last?
The unique hydrophilic nature of Restylane delivers results that generally last for about six months. And, because Restylane binds to the water in your body, its cosmetic effects are maintained until the injected material is nearly gone. Of course, individual results may vary, and it is best to discuss your individual case with Dr. Ruff and the team at West End Plastic Surgery during your initial consultation.
Restylane®, a crystal-clear gel, is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts using an ultra-fine needle. The gel fills the skin’s wrinkles and depressions by plumping the skin with water-binding, naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. The doctor may numb the treated area, however, there is minimal discomfort during or after the procedure. The procedure is simple and convenient, and results are practically instantaneous.
Restylane® treatments produce a low occurrence of side effects. The most commonly reported side effects are temporary redness and mild swelling at the injection site. Both the redness and the swelling generally disappear within seven days of your treatment.
