Refresh the appearance of your lower face with natural-looking results from RADIESSE® and BELOTERO BALANCE®1-4
By treating wrinkles and folds at different depths of the skin, the effects of RADIESSE and BELOTERO BALANCE can be complementary.1,2
RADIESSE- The Lift You Need
RADIESSE is beneficial for immediately filling deeper wrinkles and folds and adding lift to areas experiencing volume loss for a more youthful appearance. 1,3,5
BELOTERO BALANCE- The Finish You Want
BELOTERO BALANCE is an ideal choice to soften and smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles for more of a finishing touch.1,
Although not approved to treat the same wrinkle or fold at the same time, RADIESSE and BELOTERO BALANCE can each provide immediate correction for natural-looking results. 1,2
When a loss of facial volume causes folds and wrinkles to form, RADIESSE, a volumizing filler, offers a unique option—it adds an instant lift, smoothing out these signs of aging for a more youthful, natural-looking appearance that lasts. 1,3,5,7
Treatments: RADIESSE is FDA-approved for subdermal implementation for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.1
RADIESSE refreshes your look after just one treatment, immediately correcting facial folds and wrinkles. This unique filler also stimulates natural collagen production, which helps extend the initial effect of RADIESSE for a year or more in many patients. 1,3,5
It’s ideal for correcting the following facial areas1
- Smile lines*, also called nasolabial folds, which run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines*, which begin at the corners of the mouth and extend down toward the chin
- Corners of the mouth* can begin to turn downward, giving the look of a constant frown
- Pre-jowls* that form along the jaw-line
- Chin wrinkles* lines across your chin
* When wrinkle or fold is treated to full correction. Individual results may vary.
Just a single treatment of RADIESSE can be all you need to correct facial folds and wrinkles.1
The Benefits of RADIESSE®
Natural collagen is what gives skin a smooth, supple, youthful appearance. As you age, natural collagen breaks down, resulting in wrinkles and loss of facial volume.
RADIESSE, a volumizing filler, provides an instant lift, filling wrinkles and folds to help restore a more youthful look to your skin. And it continues to work with your body, stimulating the natural production of collagen for a more refreshed appearance that can last up to a year or more in many patients.1,3,5,7

By integrating within in your skin’s tissue, BELOTERO BALANCE maintains natural movement and facial expressions for a look that feels natural to the touch.2,4,6

The Benefits of Belotero Balance®
Discover how to help take your wrinkles all the way to smooth with BELOTERO BALANCE. Only BELOTERO BALANCE is created using the Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM) process. With this proprietary technology, BELOTERO BALANCE injectable gel evenly and completely blends into your skin, providing a natural, finished look.

Important Safety Information for RADIESSE® and BELOTERO BALANCE®
RADIESSE should not be used in patients with bleeding disorders or in patients with severe allergies manifested by a history of anaphylaxis, with a history or presence of multiple severe allergies or with a history of hypersensitivity to the components of RADIESSE.
BELOTERO BALANCE should not be used in patients with a history of allergic reactions, including allergies to gram positive bacterial protein.
Neither RADIESSE nor BELOTERO BALANCE should be injected into blood vessels.
As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection with RADIESSE, as well as BELOTERO BALANCE. Use of RADIESSE or BELOTERO BALANCE in any person with active skin inflammation or infection in or near the treatment area should be deferred until the inflammatory or infectious process has been controlled.
The safety and effectiveness of neither RADIESSE, nor BELOTERO BALANCE, during pregnancy or breastfeeding has been established.
The safety and effectiveness of RADIESSE use in the lips, periorbital area, in patients under 18, or in patients with a susceptibility to keloid formation and hypertrophic scarring has not been established. Radiesse patients with a history of previous herpetic eruption may experience reactivation of the herpes.
The safety or effectiveness of BELOTERO BALANCE for the treatment of dermal contour defects other than nasolabial folds, such as use in the lips, or in patients under 21 years has not been established.
Injection site responses to BELOTERO BALANCE have been observed, consisting mainly of short-term inflammatory symptoms starting early after treatment and with 7 days duration or less.
Laser treatment, chemical peeling, or any other procedure based on active dermal response performed after treatment with BELOTERO BALANCE may increase the risk of an inflammatory reaction at the injection site.
Patients using medications that prolong bleeding, such as aspirin or warfarin, may experience increased bruising and bleeding at the injection site. Exposure of the treated area to excessive sun, UV lamp exposure, and extreme cold weather should be minimized until any initial swelling and redness have resolved and puncture sites have healed.
