JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC / BELOTERO BALANCE® / Restylane Silk®
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler approved by the FDA for volume enhancement in superficial facial tissues. This option can help improve the appearance of moderate lines and wrinkles, most commonly around the nose and mouth. Also FDA-approved, BELOTERO BALANCE® offers similar benefits to JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and can add volume to chosen areas of the face. The injectable’s thinner, softer consistency and inclusion of moisturizing elements makes it ideally suited for injection into delicate areas of the face, such as the grooves under the eyes, fine facial lines, and the lips. Restylane® Silk is comprised of a smaller, smoother solution specifically designed to subtly enhance the shape and/or volume of the lips. Furthermore, this treatment can help to significantly diminish the appearance of fine vertical lines above the mouth.
By selecting the most beneficial injectable filler based on your unique needs, Dr. Louis P. Bucky and our skilled nurse injectors can effectively help you achieve your cosmetic goals with beautiful, long-lasting, and natural-looking results.
Treatment with JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, BELOTERO BALANCE®, & Restylane® Silk
Due to their hyaluronic acid composition, allergy testing is not necessary prior to JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, BELOTERO BALANCE®, and Restylane® Silk treatments. During the procedure, the selected filler will be injected into targeted treatment areas using a thin needle. Lidocaine, a special anesthetic contained within JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and Restylane® Silk solution can help to reduce any discomfort that may be experienced during the treatment. For BELOTERO BALANCE®, local anesthesia can often be administered prior to the procedure. Depending on the number of areas being treated, the entire process typically takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Recovery and Results
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, BELOTERO BALANCE®, and Restylane® Silk typically require little to no recovery time, and any possible post-procedural side effects (such as bruising swelling, and/or redness) should subside soon after treatment. Results achieved with each of these three HA fillers generally last six to twelve months for most individuals. Once the effects begin to diminish, touch-up treatments can often be received to maintain optimal results.
