Your skin may have been resilient and smooth when you were younger because of an abundance of collagen and elastin stored in your body, but that changes with age. Over time, your skin loses elasticity and firmness as these natural nutrients become depleted, which leads to visible signs of aging, like dynamic wrinkles and folds. At Bensimon Center in Portland, OR, plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Bensimon and his Aesthetic Injectors offer a variety of cosmetic services, including Belotero Balance injectable wrinkle filler. Belotero treatments 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 is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that reveals a natural, rejuvenated appearance.
"This center is very nice and the staff extremely good , a few years ago I heard about the Bensimon Center after searching cosmetic fillers on sale on the internet and the Bensimon Center was having a half price deal on all their fillers, I went in and got a beautiful job done on my lips , cheeks and chin area , I hope they have another 50% off sale , I would jump to go again and get my face serviced again. I love how beautiful and natural I looked , the results are addicting!"- H.H. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2019

"Dr Bensimon is simply the best in Portland. I had my Rhinoplasty almost 1 year ago. I had bad deviation and overall crooked shape to my nose as well as a large "hump". Photo is before and after my surgery at 11 months. The staff is all very kind and professional. The facility is clean and modern."- M.D. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2019
"I had a closed rhinoplasty with Dr. Bensimon and I could not be happier! He did an amazing job with the surgery, I LOVE the results, and it was literally painless from start to finish. I had a lot of anxiety before the procedure but the nurse helped me feel at ease. Recovery was so easy! I wish I had done this years sooner, I could not recommend Dr. Bensimon and his office enough! :)"- K.H. / Yelp / Sep 17, 2019
"The whole staff there is amazing and I couldn't recommend a better place to go for any type of filler, or services for your body. I've been seeing Andrea for about eight years; she's kind , extremely knowledgeable and highly skilled at what she does. I would never go to anyone else for skin treatments & injections. Dr Bensimon is also wonderful! He's so gentle and kind; I always leave there knowing he has provided me with all the information I need to make the vest decisions for my body & treatments I want . I could not recommend a better place , or a better group of staff to work with than Dr Bensimon & Andrea!"- A.S. / Yelp / Sep 16, 2019
Belotero Balance treatments are beneficial if you want to improve the look of moderate to severe facial lines, wrinkles, and folds without the time and expense of surgery. Belotero is especially great for lines around the lips and mouth, like the nasolabial folds. Before your treatment, Dr. Bensimon 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.
After your consultation, you will be taken to one of our treatment areas to receive your Belotero treatment. Belotero is injected with a fine-gauge needle so most patients do not need a numbing cream or local anesthesia, but it can be requested during your consultation for greater comfort. The injection sites will be identified and cleaned before the treatment is administered. Your injector will apply pressure after each injection for a few minutes to stop any minor bleeding, but once the treatment is complete, you will be free to leave and resume your normal activities.
What to Expect
After your Belotero treatment at Bensimon Center, you may have some mild swelling, redness, or bruising near the injection sites — this will fade naturally over the next week. You will see some results right after your treatment that will continue to develop over the next two weeks. The results of Belotero usually last about six months or more so talk to Dr. Bensimon and his Aesthetic Injectors about when to schedule your next appointment to enhance or maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
The cost of Belotero will vary, depending on the number of syringes that are needed to address your cosmetic concerns. During your consultation, Dr. Bensimon and his Aesthetic Injectors will be able to assess your profile and create a custom treatment plan. From there, he can provide an estimate of your cost and go over all your payment options.
How does it work?
There are many reputable fillers on the market today, each with their set of benefits. While several filler products comprised of hyaluronic acid exist, Belotero works a bit differently to interact with the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. The differences between the hyaluronic fillers can be discussed during the initial consultation.
Is it safe?
Yes. Belotero is an FDA-approved treatment that has undergone extensive tests to validate its efficacy and safety. It has been in the cosmetic market for years and is popular among both men and women. It is especially a great option for those who wish to diminish nasolabial folds or smile lines.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed to attain optimal results will vary from patient to patient. Typically, Belotero results will appear almost immediately and can last up to 6 – 12 months. On average, most patients visit our office 2 – 3 times a year for touch-ups.
Filler or BOTOX?
If you want to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without having to undergo a surgical procedure, like a facelift, then an injectable treatment may be an ideal solution. While both fillers and BOTOX work to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, they are different. BOTOX temporarily freezes the underlying facial muscles for a smoother appearance while fillers use a gel to eliminate wrinkles.
