At the Dermatology & Skin Cancer Surgery Center, Dr. Matthew Barrows and his team of medical professionals use Belotero Balance to produce smooth results for patient seeking a nonsurgical way to reduce wrinkles. Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler that effectively integrates into the skin tissue. While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, Belotero Balance specifically treats moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips. Belotero is a smooth, flexible gel that blends into the natural structure of your skin.
Belotero provides the best results for patients with moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, as well as those with hollowed areas on the face due to volume loss caused by aging or weight loss. This filler is especially useful for those with severe wrinkles between the nose and mouth, nasolabial folds, and aged skin around the corners of the mouth and above the lips. Individuals that have noticed a few stubborn lines above their lips that used to be hidden by makeup, or some small wrinkles starting to develop around the mouth are good candidates for this filler. Belotero Balance should not be used in patients with a history of or current severe allergies, including those with a history of anaphylaxis. In addition, Belotero Balance should not be used in patients with allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins.
"Tammi Dobbs is very attentive and sweet. She really listens to what you have to say always gives options in treatment rather than pushing one. She is by far the best dermatologist I've gone to."- L.B. / Google / Sep 01, 2015
"I have been to several dermatolgists in the past. I have never been examined as thoroughly as I was by Ella! To say I was impressed would be an understatement. I have had psoriasis most of my adult life. She diagnosed the stiffness in my joints as psoriatic arthritis. All of the other dermatologist I have seen have missed that completely. She is a Very caring dermatologist and has a great staff. I have finally found my dermatologist."- P.C. / Yelp / Sep 05, 2018

Belotero is a quick and simple procedure that is carried out in our dermatology office. Usually, an injection takes between 15 and 30 minutes, but is dependent upon the patient’s condition. The medical professional will determine the appropriate area or areas to treat prior to injection. Belotero will then be injected with a fine needle to minimize discomfort. Patients should consult with their doctor about options for topical anesthetics to further reduce pain.
What to Expect
During the administering of Belotero, a patient will feel a mild prick, but there shouldn't be any pain associated with the injectable. After treatment, there may be some redness and mild swelling in the injection area, but these side effects usually go away within a few hours. There is little to no downtime following the injection, so the majority of patients are able to return to their normal day-to-day activities. After receiving Belotero, most patients will notice an immediate difference in their appearance and can expect results to last 6 months or more.
