As patients age, their skin can become dull, wrinkled, and begin to thin out. Once this happens, it can detract from a person's overall facial appearance. Belotero Balance is a dermal filler that is used to correct wrinkles, lines, and lack of volume in the skin. Because it is made of hyaluronic acid, it is able to naturally replenish the skin's moisture and fullness. Our board-certified, New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Lawrence Bass, can inject Belotero around the mouth for lip lines and lip augmentation, lower eyelids, tear troughs, nasolabial folds, and also the temples for a restored, more youthful look. For candidates who are not wishing to undergo surgery, Belotero can be a great option that can potentially yield results for up to a year. Patients can learn more about all of our filler options by scheduling a consult at Bass Plastic Surgery in Great Neck or Manhattan, NY.
The best candidates for Belotero Balance:
- Have moderate to deep lines around the lips, between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), and the forehead
- Have facial volume loss
- Desire long-term, natural-looking results
- Do not wish to undergo invasive surgical operations
Belotero Balance® Reviews
"Radiesse and Belotero Shots for Rejuvenation - Manhattan, NY - Found him on RealSelf. Doctor Bass was very jovial throughout the procedure, I was really thankful for the time he took to respond to all of my questions in detail, and even to respond to my mother's worries when she came in. (The price can seem a little high, but that's because I used quite a lot of product, I wanted that facelift that would put me into my early twenties again, but if it's simply to fill in the undereye or plump the lip, that doesn't necessitate much product, the price would be dramatically reduced. Doctor Bass definitely makes it possible to have a cheaper procedure)."- A. / RealSelf / Mar 17, 2013
What to Expect
Belotero is given as in-office treatment. Though pain and discomfort should be minimal, a local anesthetic can be used beforehand to limit any discomfort. Our plastic surgeon will assess the target location(s) and determine the dosage to suit the patient’s specific needs. Belotero will be delivered through a fine needle to the treatment area. Patients should expect to feel a small prick as the filler is injected. The entire procedure takes around 15 – 30 minutes.
After a Belotero treatment, a patient can expect redness and mild swelling at the injection site, which should resolve within a few hours. Normal activities can be resumed right away, but it’s best to avoid exercise for a few hours afterward. The effects of Belotero should be seen right away with smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Results from Belotero typically last 6 – 12 months.
