About Belotero Balance
The natural aging process and genetics are the major causes of facial volume loss for both men and women. However, certain medications, weight loss, stress, and other lifestyle factors may contribute to exacerbated facial volume loss at different rates. Your skin may have been supple and fresh when you were young because of natural resilience and an abundance of collagen and elastin stored in your skin. Aging causes your skin to lose elasticity and firmness as these natural nutrients become depleted, and this leads to visible signs of aging (volume loss, lines, and wrinkles). Advanced Dermatology offers many cosmetic and medical dermatology services, including Belotero Balance injectable wrinkle filler. Belotero Balance injections are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help improve the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles throughout the face, including stubborn, etched lines and the nasolabial folds around the mouth. A nonsurgical solution, Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that delivers a refreshed and natural look. We can create a treatment plan to meet your aesthetic goals and give you that youthful appearance once again.

"My first son had acne really bad and went to other dermatologists, didn’t improve, then Toni saw him and told her everything he has been on, even antibiotics, scarring was even beginning, she knew Accutane was the only choice. Blood work of course each time, but totally worth it, he is now 20 years old and has the best skin ever, even the scarring disappeared! He was on it for about a year. Now our entire family goes. Then My youngest had a little knot on the back of his neck bone, no worries, unless any changes occurred, it did about a year later, it grew and he was in pain, they wanted to rule out cancer, we went to Advanced Dermatology in League City because that’s where they perform the surgeries. The Dr. was wonderful there! Talked to him about basketball to keep his mind on things that makes him happy. He did awesome, they removed it, biopsy came back no Cancer! Even gave us his personal number in case we needed him sooner before the stitches were removed. It looks great!"- T.K. / Facebook / Dec 29, 2020
"I had a check up today with Dr. Nguyen. Before going to this appointment I read reviews about the Sugar Land and Katy locations. Contrary to some of the reviews I read, I felt Dr. Nguyen was extremely professional, thorough in her exam of my moles and complimentary towards me. Unlike the Sugar Land office, where I question why an assistant to a PA I used to see was not wearing gloves.. and also I felt like I upset the PA because after she removed a benign spot off my chest, it became infected and I felt like the PA was threatened by my questions about the infection and my complaint about the assistant not wearing gloves. Just decided I need to go to someone else. If someone is doing anything like numbing my skin for a biopsy( which was the procedure) I expect them to wear gloves. Very unprofessional. I did go back one time to the Sugar Land location and saw someone else, who I liked, but this time they had no openings when I needed to be seen on my time frame but the Katy location had an opening . Things happen for a reason, and I’m glad I ended up with Dr. Nguyen at Katy Advanced Dermatology!"- D.B. / Yelp / Dec 29, 2020
Belotero Balance treatments are wonderful if you want to improve moderate to severe facial lines, wrinkles, and folds without the time and expense of cosmetic surgery. Belotero Balance is especially great for lines around the lips and mouth, like the nasolabial folds. Before your treatment, your practitioner will perform a consultation to go over your medical history, current medications, and known allergies to determine if you are a good candidate for Belotero Balance.
While every person ages differently, many patients begin to notice signs of facial volume loss starting in their late 20s. In your youth, fat in the face is evenly distributed with pockets that plump up the forehead, temples, cheeks, and areas around the eyes and mouth. As you age, the natural supports of the skin begin to break down and fat pads may shift downward. This process accelerates as you age (and fluctuate in weight), and it can be influenced by a number of environmental or behavioral factors.
After your consultation, you will be taken to our procedure room to receive your Belotero Balance treatment. Belotero Balance is injected with a fine-gauge needle so most patients do not need a numbing cream, but it can be requested for greater comfort. The injection sites will be identified and prepared before the treatment is administered in several quick applications. Your injector 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
After your Belotero Balance treatment at Advanced Dermatology, you may have some mild swelling, redness, or bruising near the injection sites — this will fade naturally. You will see some results right after your treatment that will continue to develop over the next two weeks. The results of Belotero Balance usually last about six months so talk to your injector about when to schedule your next appointment to enhance or maintain your results. This depends on your age, as well as the level of correction needed.
