If you would like to boost your skin's level of hydration and correct facial wrinkles like the nasiolabial folds, smile lines, and forehead wrinkles, we suggest you try Belotero Balance injectable wrinkle filler treatments. This liquid dermal filler is available at Snyder Plastic Surgery at The Breast and Body Center and is injected by our board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ned Snyder IV. This fantastic filler is injected straight into the problem areas and consists of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found in the body. When you have your consultation in one of our Austin, TX area offices, Dr. Snyder will assess your skin tone and wrinkles to see if Belotero is the right injectable for you.
Belotero is often a single-session treatment that lasts up to 30 minutes, sometimes even less. Patients may experience pain is similar to any other injection treatments. A topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort during the session. The amount of medication, formulation, and injection spot vary considering each patient’s circumstances. The entire process is repeated every 6 to 12 months as the formulation is naturally absorbed by the body.
"I had an amazing experience with beautiful results - I couldn’t be happier with my breast augmentation results. Everyone that I met from my first consultation to my post follow up after surgery were extremely helpful and informative. Dr. Snyder himself is an amazing surgeon. My results are perfect and better than I ever could have imagined. I highly recommend him if you are thinking about this procedure. His PA, Jen was extremely helpful and informative as well. The facilities from Dr. Snyder’s office to the surgical site used were clean, beautiful and comfortable. I felt well taken care the entire time and am thrilled with my results."- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 08, 2018
"Dr. Snyder, his P.A. Jen, Laurene, and the entire staff have been the most outstanding and accommodating medical professionals with whom I have ever interacted. They go above and beyond in virtually every way I can imagine. The facilities are updated and pristine. They are kind and genuinely care for their patients. I have had two major surgeries after almost 200 pounds of weight loss and, while the recovery after those procedures was always going to be long and difficult, Dr. Snyder and his staff has made all the work more than worth it. I would give more than 5 stars if I could. -Justin"- J.T. / Yelp / Jul 05, 2019

Since this is a noninvasive treatment, patients will be able to go back to their normal routine shortly after the injection. Some swelling and redness may be present, but these usually subside after a few hours. Strenuous activities must be avoided for at least 1 day. The results are evident immediately and can last from 6 – 12 months. Generally, the skin treated will appear smooth with a rejuvenated glow that makes facial features look young and fresh.

There are a number of available injectable fillers that are hyaluronic based in the market today. However, Belotero is best known for its function to correct severe wrinkles commonly found around the nasolabial folds. Other fillers will be discussed during the initial consultation with Dr, Snyder to highlight the advantages of each and the best approach to the patient’s facial features and cosmetic concerns.
Belotero is hyaluronic-acid-based filler that is FDA approved. It is backed with years of extensive testing for its function and safety. Since hyaluronic acid is a substance processed naturally in the body, it is a solution that integrates well with the underlying tissues and provides great results in terms of adding volume and promoting skin hydration.
Botox or Belotero?
BOTOX works in a way that once injected, the skin will appear smoother and softer because the solution is a muscle relaxant. It freezes the muscles beneath the skin where it was injected. However, it does not add any volume to the area. Belotero, like other injectable dermal fillers, can provide the same results as BOTOX, but works in a way that it adds more volume so that it stretches the skin to make it appear more youthful and smoother with wrinkles becoming less evident.
Do I Need Reinjections?
In most cases, yes. Since Belotero is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally within the body, the injected solution normally gets absorbed. It is recommended to maintain injections every 6 months to 1 year to supplement the loss of volume. Some patients initially opt for dermal fillers to see if cosmetic enhancements will look and feel before proceeding with more permanent and invasive procedures such as facelifts.
