Overview

One of the newest hyaluronic acid-based injectable dermal fillers, Belotero Balance improves moderate to severe facial lines and folds for a refreshed appearance. Belotero's hyaluronic acid-based filler integrates with the patient's skin tissue, which keeps the texture and appearance of the face natural. Patients in clinical trials found that the areas of their face treated with Belotero felt better and looked smoother than the areas of their face treated with another brand of dermal filler.

At La Jolla Plastic Surgery in San Diego, CA triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Chaffoo performs Belotero Balance injectable treatments to correct facial lines and folds, particularly the nasolabial folds from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Chaffoo to learn more about Belotero Balance and other dermal fillers, such as BOTOX® injectable wrinkle relaxer, so that he can create the best treatment plan for your needs and goals.

Procedure Technique

Belotero Balance is injected into needed areas of the face with a very fine needle for minimal discomfort. Since Belotero does not require an allergy test, a typical Belotero treatment session lasts about 20 minutes and can usually be performed the same day as your consultation. Results usually last about 6 – 12 months, but the results for each patient will vary. Patients are encouraged to schedule touch up treatments when they see their results begin to diminish.

Belotero FAQs

Belotero Vs. Other Fillers?

Belotero Balance is unique from other dermal fillers because it has a lower risk of lumps forming under the skin due to its softer consistency. Belotero is also less likely to cause a blue tint under the skin in certain areas, like around the eyes.

After Treatment?

Patients will be able to return to their normal activities immediately after their Belotero treatment, but some patients may have mild swelling, redness, and itching in the treated area for 1 – 2 days. You should contact our office if you are concerned by any of your side effects or if they last more than 2 days.

Best Treatment Areas?

Belotero Balance can be used on most of the common areas of the face that develop wrinkles and other effects of aging, but Belotero is best on:

  • "Crow’s feet," the periorbital lines around the eyes
  • "Smoker’s lines," the perioral lines around the mouth and lips
  • "Frown lines," the vertical glabellar lines on the forehead
  • "Laugh lines," the nasolabial folds from the nose to the corners of the the mouth
  • "Marionette lines," the lines from the corners of the mouth to the jaw
  • Lip and cheek augmentation
  • Correcting minor facial depressions
