Belotero Balance Frequently Asked Questions
Your skin may have been smooth and youthful when you were young because of natural resilience and an abundance of collagen and elastin stored in your body. However, when you get older, your skin loses elasticity and firmness as these natural vitamins begin to diminish, which causes noticeable signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, on the face. At Najera Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in Frisco, TX, plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Najera performs numerous cosmetic and medical dermatology services, including Belotero Balance dermal filler. Belotero treatments are approved by the FDA to repair moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the face, including stubborn, etched lines and the nasolabial folds near your mouth. A scalpel-free alternative, Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that helps you receive a rejuvenated, natural appearance.

"This is the place you need to go to. From the start with my pre-op with Jessica Benenate I felt at ease talking with her. They are all VERY informative and so friendly and personable. My surgeon, Dr. Najera, is one of the kindest people I have ever met. He is so professional and did an excellent job going above and beyond my expectations. I can't stress enough how important it is to have a board certified surgeon who knows what they are doing AND cares about their patient's final outcome. This is what you get with Dr. Najera. I am so lucky I chose the best place to get my surgery done."- L.R. / Google / Jan 17, 2019
"I couldn't be happier with my results from Dr. Najera! I was recommended to him by my mother who is the queen of research. And she was right about choosing him. The staff was always sweet and helpful. I'm sure I annoyed them with questions constantly, but they never made me feel anything but comfortable and cared about. Amber and Jessica were awesome. Dr. Najera always has a really positive attitude and is honest and clear about what to expect. He gave me exactly what I wanted and I am so thankful for him and his staff really listening to my wishes. Whenever it came to anything beauty on myself, I was never 100% pleased with the results. With Dr. Najera, I truly was. I would recommend him and go back in the future!"- K.M. / Google / Jan 11, 2019

"I can't say enough great things about Najera Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery. The facility is beautiful, and every member of the staff that I have encountered so far has been super friendly and helpful. If you are seeking some kind of cosmetic injectables, do yourself a favor and make an appointment with Linda asap! I tend to be a 'Nervous Nelly' and can't help but ask millions of questions, but she was patient, friendly, and knowledgeable. Above all else, your comfort and complete satisfaction is her priority!!!"- A.C. / Yelp / Dec 14, 2018
Belotero Balance treatments are helpful if you hope to correct the look of moderate to severe facial folds, lines, and wrinkles without opting for a surgical procedure. Belotero is especially great for addressing lines around the mouth, like the nasolabial folds. Before your treatment, Dr. Najera will meet with you during a consultation to discuss your current medications, known allergies, and medical history to determine if you are an ideal candidate for Belotero.
At the end of your consultation, you will be taken to our minor procedures area to receive your Belotero treatment. Belotero is injected via a fine-gauge needle so most patients do not require a topical or local anesthesia, but it can be requested during your consultation for greater comfort. The treatment sites will be cleaned and prepared before the treatment is administered in several, fast applications. Dr. Najera will apply pressure after each injection for a few minutes to stop any minor bleeding, but then you are free to leave and resume your normal activities.
What to Expect with Belotero Balance®
After your Belotero treatment at Najera Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, you may experience some mild bruising, swelling, and redness near the injection sites — this will fade naturally over the next week. You will notice some results right after your treatment that will continue to develop over the next two weeks. The results of Belotero usually last about six months so talk to Dr. Najera about how to maximize your results with repeat sessions.
Belotero Balance Ideal Candidates
How much does it cost?
The cost of Belotero will vary, depending on the number of syringes that are needed to address your cosmetic concerns. During your consultation, our aesthetics team will be able to assess your profile and create a custom treatment plan. From there, we can provide an estimate of your cost and go over all your payment options.
How does it work?
There are many reputable fillers on the market today, each with their unique set of benefits. While several filler products comprised of hyaluronic acid exist, Belotero works a bit differently to interact with the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. The differences between the hyaluronic fillers can be discussed during your initial consultation.
Is Belotero safe?
Yes. Belotero is an FDA-approved treatment that has undergone extensive tests to validate its efficacy and safety. It has been in the cosmetic market for years and is popular among both men and women. It is an especially great option for those who wish to diminish nasolabial folds or smile lines.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed to attain optimal results will vary from patient to patient. Typically, Belotero results will appear almost immediately and can last up to 6 – 12 months. On average, most patients visit our office 2 – 3 times a year for touch-ups.
Filler or BOTOX?
If you want to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without having to undergo a surgical procedure, like a facelift, then an injectable treatment may be an ideal solution. While both fillers and BOTOX work to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, they are different. BOTOX temporarily freezes the underlying facial muscles for a smoother appearance while fillers use a gel to eliminate wrinkles.
