Back to10 Things Your Dermatologist Can Do to Make You Look Younger, Faster
THEY CAN TURN SMALL LINES INTO NO LINES
A new hyaluronic acid filler, recently approved by the FDA, can diminish the tiniest and most superficial of lines. And that's big news. "Belotero Balance spreads out evenly instead of clumping up like other fillers, so you don't have to inject it deep into the tissue," says Fredric Brandt, a dermatologist with offices in New York City and Miami. The small particles and malleable texture make it possible to smooth shallow lines instantly while maintaining a bump-free surface. "It's perfect for filling in fine lines around the lips and even crow's-feet," says Brandt. And because the needle only penetrates the skin's top layers, there's far less bruising involved.
