In our youthful years, our faces are supple and fresh due to our natural elasticity and a wealth of elastin and collagen stored in our body. As we age, our skin loses firmness and elasticity as these natural vitamins begin to diminish, which causes noticeable symptoms of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, on the face. At Ocean Plastic Surgery Center in Los Alamitos, CA, we perform many aesthetic and dermatological treatments for this issue, such as Belotero Balance dermal filler. Belotero is approved by the FDA to repair fine to deep wrinkles and lines around the face, which includes persistent, deep-seated lines, as well as the nasolabial folds near the mouth. A scalpel-free alternative, Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) product that delivers a refreshed and natural appearance.
"Oceans Plastic Surgery is top notch!! I was treated like one of the family by Dr. Aiello and his team. My tummy tuck was a true success and I have referred several friends/family that have also had procedures completed. This team is supportive and did everything to make me feel comfortable from the beginning and even now, 7 months later for my follow-up appointment. I look and feel great and wi tell anyone that if this is something you've wanted to do, do it here!!"- R.C. / Yelp / Mar 21, 2019

Belotero injections are wonderful if you hope to correct the appearance of fine to deep facial folds, lines, and wrinkles without opting for a surgical procedure. Belotero is most beneficial for addressing lines around the mouth, such as the nasolabial folds. Prior to the procedure, we will meet with you during a consultation to discuss your current medications, known allergies, and medical history to decide if you are an ideal candidate for Belotero.
At the end of your consultation, you will be escorted to our procedure room to undergo your treatment. Belotero is injected via a very small needle so many individuals do not require a topical or local anesthesia, but it is available upon request to further minimize discomfort. The treatment sites will be identified and prepared before Belotero is injected in several fast applications. Pressure will be applied to the injection sites for a few moments to control any bleeding, but you will then be free to return to your daily activities.
What to Expect
Following your Belotero injections at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center, you might have some mild bruising, swelling, and redness around the injection sites — these symptoms will fade in the coming days. You will notice some immediate results after your Belotero treatment that will continue developing in the weeks following the procedure. Belotero results typically last around six months so speak with our aesthetic nurse practitioner about how to maximize your results with repeat sessions.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Belotero cost?
Belotero treatment varies in cost, depending on how many syringes are needed to reach your aesthetic goals. During your consultation, we will be able to examine your skin and create a custom treatment plan. Once a plan is created, cost estimates and payment options can be discussed.
How is Belotero different?
Every dermal filler on the market has its own unique benefits. Belotero is a hyaluronic acid, but it is unique in that it works within the mid to deep dermis to correct wrinkles and folds from mild to severe aggressiveness. Ask your injector about the differences between hyaluronic fillers at your consultation.
How safe is Belotero?
Belotero is FDA approved and has undergone extensive tests to ensure its safety and usefulness. A very popular treatment with both women and men, it has been on the aesthetics market for years. Belotero is considered one of the best treatments for nasolabial folds or smile lines.
How many treatments will I need?
Different patients will need different numbers of treatments to reach their individual optimal results. Most patients report seeing results almost immediately, and the results can last from 6 months to 1 year. Typically, patients schedule touch-up appointments at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center 2 – 3 times a year.
Filler or BOTOX?
Fillers and BOTOX both diminish the look of wrinkles, but they work differently. Fillers use different types of surgically safe gels to fill in and eliminate wrinkles while BOTOX temporarily incapacitates the facial muscles responsible for the wrinkles. Injectable treatments can be great solutions for improving the look of your skin without having to go under the knife.
