A loss of volume under the eyes can create unwanted shadows that age your appearance. In the past, the only treatment option was surgery, but we are pleased to offer our patients more conservative solutions through Restylane® and Belotero Balance®.
Restylane® is a soft tissue filler comprised of hyaluronic acid gel, which occurs naturally in the skin and is responsible for absorbing water molecules and plumping the skin. Age, environment, and UV radiation exposure cause the skin to lose its hyaluronic acid and water cushion, resulting in deflation. Restylane injects hyaluronic acid into the skin, restoring a youthful appearance.
Like Restylane®, Belotero Balance® is a soft tissue filler that contains hyaluronic acid. It is manufactured as a smooth product containing very fine particles that integrate into the skin structure and provide a natural appearance. Belotero typically lasts 6 to 9 months and is slowly broken down by the skin’s natural process.
