Your skin may have been supple and smooth when you were young because of natural resilience and an abundance of collagen and elastin stored in your body. When you get older, your skin loses elasticity and firmness as these natural vitamins begin to diminish, which causes noticeable signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, GA offers a number of cosmetic and medical dermatology services, including Belotero Balance dermal filler. Belotero treatments are approved by the FDA to repair moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the face, including stubborn, etched lines and the nasolabial folds near your mouth. A scalpel-free alternative, Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that offers a natural, refreshed look. Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marisa Lawrence, is proud to offer a full library of aesthetic services to help our area patients achieve their supreme cosmetic goals.
"Dr. Lawrence truly has the skills of a surgeon but the touch of a woman. So knowledgeable and kind. I was particularly impressed by how well she listened. She was not in a rush like most doctors. She sat and listened to me. I felt respected. She's the best!"- L.B. / Yelp / Jun 14, 2019

"Best Decision I’ve Ever Made - I was 12 years old the first time I saw my facial profile in a picture. I gasped at my “beak” which I felt was much too large for my face. I was self-conscious about my dorsal hump and bulbous tip ever since. I’ve always angled my face a certain way to minimize my insecurity about my nose when talking to people in person, taking pictures, etc. It consumed my life. I had a single consultation with Dr.Lawrence and knew she was the surgeon for me. The entire staff is professional and friendly, which immediately put me at ease. Dr.Lawrence addressed correcting the parts of my nose I was insecure about to increase facial balance. She is a double board certified and fellowship trained surgeon, so I was confident in her skill and intuition. My operation was seamless, my recovery was shockingly easy, and Dr.Lawrence has been there every step of the way throughout my recovery. I am only 4 months post-op and I’m IN LOVE with the results of my rhinoplasty! I look balanced and so natural. I’m also wearing less makeup since my procedure. My only regret is not having the rhinoplasty sooner! It looks even better than I imagined. My confidence has been restored. I feel like ME for the first time in my adult life. I would recommend Dr.Lawrence to anyone considering plastic surgery. I am forever grateful!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Apr 26, 2019
"I had breast implant removal surgery (capsule removed) about a month ago and am very pleased with the results. Dct. Lawrence, office staff, and surgery location staff were all very kind, gentle, professional & detailed. A++"- C.U. / Facebook / Apr 26, 2019
Belotero Balance treatments are fantastic if you hope to correct the look of moderate to severe facial folds, lines, and wrinkles without opting for a surgical procedure. Belotero is especially great for addressing lines around the mouth, like the nasolabial folds. Before your treatment, Dr. Lawrence will meet with you during a consultation to discuss your current medications, known allergies, and medical history to determine if you are an ideal candidate for Belotero.
At the end of your consultation, you will be taken to our treatment area to receive your Belotero treatment. Belotero is injected via a fine-gauge needle so most patients do not require topical or local anesthesia, but it can be requested during your consultation for greater comfort. The treatment sites will be marked and prepared before the treatment is administered in several, fast applications. Our licensed aesthetician 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 treatment at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery, you may have some mild bruising, swelling, and redness near the injection sites — this will fade naturally over the next week. You will notice 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 so talk to Dr. Lawrence about how to maximize your results with repeat sessions.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
The cost of your Belotero treatment will vary, according to the number of vials and syringes needed to reach your desired result. At your consultation, our aesthetician will be able to assess your goals and profile and create a custom treatment plan, including an estimate of the cost of your treatment.
How does it work?
Belotero is a hyaluronic acid injectable that interacts with the mid to deep layers of your skin to correct moderate and severe lines and wrinkles. While there are a number of similar products on the market, Belotero offers results for deeper folds. For more information about hyaluronic fillers, ask Dr. Lawrence during your consultation.
Is it safe?
Belotero is a safe, FDA-approved injectable that has been through a number of rigorous tests to ensure optimal safety and efficiency. As it has been on the market for many years, Belotero is popular among both men and women because of the results it offers.
How many treatments will I need?
To maintain your desired aesthetic results, more than one session may be needed over time. Belotero results typically appear immediately and last approximately six months. Patients have the best long-term results when they undergo touch-ups twice yearly.
Filler or BOTOX?
If you would like to refresh and rejuvenate your look without going under the knife, Belotero may be the solution for you. While Belotero and BOTOX both decrease the appearance of wrinkles, they are very different products. BOTOX temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles for a smoother appearance while fillers quite literally fill the wrinkles for a smoother look.
