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.
"I truly had the best experience with La Jolla Skin! I was referred here by a friend who received micro needling and raved about how amazing her skin looked and felt after. This friend of mine recently moved to La Jolla from Beverly Hills and is definitely picky when it comes to all things beauty, so I completely trusted her recommendation. I had been wanting to do something more than just your standard facial to help the texture and appearance of my skin... acne scarring, pigmentation from the sun, large pores. I called to schedule my appointment and spoke with Jennifer who was SO sweet and helpful. When I went in for my appointment I have to admit I was a little nervous, but after consulting with Tracy I felt much more at ease. Nancy was the RN that preformed the micro needling and she too was amazing! She calmed my nerves and was just so so great. After having numbing cream on 30 mins prior to the micro needling I literally felt no pain or discomfort during the service. The machine is loud which sounds scary, but honestly it's nothing. My experience here was so wonderful and I look forward to continuing treatments with them. Highly recommend!!"- S.B. / Yelp / Sep 26, 2016
"Dr. Chaffoo is a great surgeon and is kind, gentle, experienced and has a great bedside manner. His staff (Nancy and Tracy) are equally as attentive and thorough. I felt safe and confident. I had my breast implants removed and a lift and a fat transfer to balance them. He did a great job. I am very happy with the results. I would recommend him to anyone."- S.E. / Yelp / Jul 25, 2017
"I just love coming here! Everyone that works here is not only extremely talented, but also very kind and welcoming. I've had microneedling, cool sculpting, vbeam, and a hydrafacial....I'm beyond happy with the results from each of these procedures! This whole team really takes time to listen to all of your questions and concerns, and patiently responds to each and every one. I've never felt like I was left feeling confused about anything, or that I had wasted my money on a service. I'm a client for life! Thank you all for being so awesome, I'd give you 6 stars if I could!"- N.R. / Yelp / Jul 17, 2017
"Very Natural Breast Augmentation, Wonderful Experience - Dr. Chaffoo is the utmost professional. I had a great experience with him from the start to finish of my surgery process, and continue to have a good experience. He is very attentive and caring, and I ended up with fabulous results from my surgery. I also appreciate that Dr. Chaffoo has me come in once per year for a check up, which gives me added peace of mind."- K. / RealSelf / Jul 11, 2017
"Great new experience - I went to La Jolla Plastic Surgery for Coolsculpting. It was a new experience for me but Dr. Chaffoo and his assistant Robert walked me through it and made sure I was comfortable through it all. I have already recommended them to several friends and I'm sure I'll be back soon. Thanks!"- S. / RealSelf / Jun 22, 2017
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 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.
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
