About Belotero Balance
Your face may have been supple and youthful years ago due to natural elasticity and a wealth of elastin and collagen stored in your body. As you age, your skin loses firmness and elasticity as proteins and nutrients begin to deplete, leading to obvious symptoms of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. At SkinMD in Hurst and Weatherford, TX, our providers serve many patients with aesthetic and dermatological treatments, such as the Belotero Balance wrinkle filler. Belotero Balance is Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved to address fine to deep wrinkles and lines of the face, which includes your persistent, deep-seated lines and nasolabial folds around your mouth. A minimally invasive option, Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid (HA) product that delivers a refreshed and natural appearance.
"I saw Karen Sticka and she was AMAZING! She made me feel so relaxed and talked me through everything and made sure I knew what needed to be done vs if I just wanted it done as well as roughly how much it would cost so I wouldn’t be surprised when I checked out! Look forward to many visits to see her!"- M.S. / Facebook / Jul 27, 2019
"Had a Basal cell on my nose, Dr. Swayden biopsies and set appointment with Dr. Xi (Shaw), he was excellent in what turned out to be quite an ordeal. Dr. Xi even has called twice to check on me. In this day and age that truly amazed me. Very kind and care for their patients. I highly recommend Dr. Swayden and Dr. Xi CZ"- C.Z. / Facebook / Jul 15, 2019

Belotero Balance injections are wonderful if you wish to minimize the appearance of fine to deep facial wrinkles, lines, and folds without undergoing a surgical procedure. Belotero Balance is most beneficial for treating lines around the lips and mouth, such as the nasolabial folds. Prior to the treatment, your injector will consult with you to review your known allergies, current medications, and medical history to decide if Belotero Balance is right for you.
Following your consultation, you will be escorted to our procedure room to undergo your treatment. Belotero Balance is administered through a very small needle, so many individuals do not request a topical or local anesthetic, but it is available upon request to further minimize discomfort. The treatment areas will be identified and prepared before Belotero Balance is injected in a few, 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 Balance injections at SkinMD, you might have some mild redness, swelling, and bruising around the injection sites — these symptoms will fade in the coming days. You should expect some immediate results after your Belotero Balance treatment that will continue developing in the weeks following the injection session. Belotero Balance results typically last around six months, so speak with our medical team about how touch-ups and repeat treatments can help you maintain lasting results.
