Your face may have been smooth and youthful years ago due to natural resilience and an abundance of elastin and collagen stored in your body. As you get older, your skin loses firmness and elasticity as these natural vitamins and nutrients begin to diminish, which leads to obvious signs of aging, such as facial lines and wrinkles.
At Ciao Bella Medical Spa in Frisco, TX, practice founder Dr. Jon Ricks and his experienced team perform numerous cosmetic and dermatological treatments, such as Belotero Balance wrinkle filler injections. Belotero is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help improve the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and lines around the face, including persistent, etched lines as well as the nasolabial folds near and around your mouth. A scalpel-free alternative, Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) product that delivers a naturally rejuvenated appearance.
Belotero Balance injections are helpful 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 treating lines around the lips and mouth, like the nasolabial folds. Before your treatment, Dr. Ricks will consult with you to discuss your known allergies, current medications, and medical history to determine if you are an ideal candidate for Belotero.
At the end of your consultation, you will be escorted to our minor procedures area to undergo your treatment.
Belotero is injected with a fine gauge needle, so most patients do not need topical or local anesthesia, but it is available upon request for greater comfort. The treatment sites will be cleaned and prepared before the treatment is injected in a few fast applications. Pressure will be applied to the injection sites for a few moments to control any minor bleeding, but then you are free to leave and resume your normal activities.
results typically last around six months
After your Belotero treatment at Ciao Bella Medical Spa, you might have some mild redness, swelling, and bruising near the injection sites — this will fade in the coming days. Frisco Belotero Balance patients should expect some immediate results after your treatment that will continue to develop over the next two weeks. Belotero results typically last around six months, so talk to Dr. Ricks about how to maximize your results with repeat sessions.

"Dr. Ricks is a great doctor! He’s compassionate and understanding. He also takes time to listen to what I have to say instead of trying to rush me out, which is very important. He also takes time to call to check on me after the many surgeries that I have had, and that says a lot. Dr. Ricks goes above and beyond for his patients. A doctor that goes that extra mile and still has time to run a full time business says a lot. THANK YOU, DR.RICKS."

"Dr. Ricks is by far the best OBGYN out there. From the first appointment, he has been great. His bedside manner is amazing, and he is truly knowledgeable and will spend the time with you to be sure you understand what’s going on, too. He will go above and beyond for his patients and has personally done that for me, as well as a couple of my friends that see him too. The office staff and clinical team are also top-notch…You’re not just another number to any of them. Hands down, the best office."
