Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Buckingham helps men and women release their inner beauty with treatments like Belotero Balance® at Buckingham Center in Austin, Texas. Balance® is a non-surgical procedure that refreshes the skin, improves its overall appearance and reduces signs of aging.

Dr. Buckingham specializes in providing smooth, natural-looking results for men and women.
The Belotero Balance®
Belotero Balance® is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler that adds volume and smooths lines and wrinkles. The amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin is naturally depleted as we age, and Belotero® replenishes this important substance during a simple in-office treatment. Each treatment produces instant results as it discreetly enhances facial contours and replaces lost hyaluronic acid. The treatment also moisturizes and hydrates the skin, which creates a radiant Belotero Balance® glow.
Fillers and Belotero differences
Belotero Balance® is a hyaluronic acid filler that is similar to Restylane® and Juvederm®, but it is constituted differently to treat superficial lines and wrinkles without appearing lumpy or creating a bluish hue that is referred to as the Tyndall effect. Belotero Balance® is ideal for redefining the lip border and treating the wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth as well as other facial wrinkles and fold, including the following:
- Frown lines in the glabellar region
- Crow’s feet/Periorbital lines
- Lines on the bridge of the nose
- Nasolabial folds and smile lines
- Perioral lines around the mouth and lips (pouting lines)
- Marionette lines/folds around the mouth and chin (laugh lines)
- Forehead lines (worry lines)
- Under-the-eye hollows or circles
Belotero® is an excellent dermal filler that is used to restore a more youthful and radiant appearance. The moisturizing and rehydrating benefits of Belotero Balance® provide a healthy glow. Each treatment is customized to match the patient’s requests, and Dr. Buckingham discusses the expectations with each patient during their consultation. Belotero® smooths and fills lines, wrinkles, and folds, and the results last for approximately six months.
Belotero Balance® requires little to no downtime or recovery period. The results are instant, and patients can immediately return to their regular work schedule and activities. Some minor bruising, swelling and redness can be experienced initially, but these symptoms quickly fade. Patients enjoy quick, natural-looking results that fade away lines and signs of aging.
Dr. Buckingham meets privately with each patient. After reviewing their medical history, he asks about the specific goals and cosmetic concerns that brought the patient in for the consultation and you can ask the things to know about Belotero you are most concerned. Dr. Buckingham then completes a detailed facial analysis and provides each patient with a personalized treatment plan based on his or her goals. He explains the advantages and disadvantages of each recommended surgical or nonsurgical procedure, including Belotero Balance®. Although Dr. Buckingham offers several exceptional dermal fillers, he will only suggest the best filler for the patient. If Balance® is recommended, the injections may be completed during that visit.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Professional nurse injector Rene’ Thomas, R.N. perform Belotero Balance at Buckingham Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in Austin, Texas. Balance® injections are administered with a very fine needle to smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. The procedure takes about 45 minutes, and the results are seen instantly as the lines and wrinkles are filled.

Dr. Buckingham’s nurses strategically fill wrinkles, folds, and hollows that are pre-determined during the consultation, giving each patient the more youthful and refreshed look that they desire.
*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
Dr. Buckingham feels that successful facial plastic surgery results from the development and maintenance of good rapport between the patient, the surgeon, and his staff during the consultation and future appointments. The consultation will include a complete facial analysis to determine the best procedure to bring about the desired results and all questions relating to the patients specific concerns will be addressed.
Prospective patients are encouraged to call the office to schedule an appointment at their earliest convenience.
The Ideal Belotero Balance® Candidate
The ideal Balance® candidate is a male or female who is in generally good health, over the age of 21, and has moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles or volume depletion. The ideal Balance® candidate has reasonable expectations and understands that a filler provides great improvements but cannot achieve the significant or lasting benefits of a surgical procedure. Balance® may also be performed in conjunction with an additional surgical treatment, such as an eyebrow lift or rhinoplasty.
Dr. Buckingham and the professionals at the Buckingham Center never pressure patients to have treatments completed. Financing packages are available that fit most budgets, and Balance® is priced similarly to other popular fillers. The cost will depend on the number of injections and vials of Balance® that are needed.
