Often times, a cosmetic surgery patient may not be quite ready for a large procedure or does not need a more extensive and invasive treatment of the face. For cases in which BOTOX® alone may not be the right choice, facial fillers may be the better choice to produce the patient’s desired results. For some, a combination of facial filler and BOTOX produces the best result.
Facial fillers are certainly not new, but their popularity is steadily increasing, and cosmetic surgeons such as Dr. Leon Goldstein at The Office of Dr. Leon Goldstein find these products to be safe, effective, and long-lasting.
As we age, we notice the not-so-subtle signs of aging that occur over time as a result of exposure to the sun, heredity, and our lifestyle. One of the earliest and most common sign of aging is a loss of facial fullness and the development of wrinkles. Softening of these facial lines and the restoration of volume and fullness in the face can often be achieved non-surgically with injectable fillers.
Injectable fillers such as Radiesse, are FDA approved, and can:
- Plump up thin lips
- Enhance shallow contours of the face
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
Injectable fillers cannot achieve the same results as a facelift, eyebrow lift, or blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), and soft tissue augmentation does not actually stop the aging process, of course. However, injectable fillers can certainly minimize the signs of aging, resulting in, perhaps, improved self-confidence and a newfound pride in your appearance.
There are many different agents that can be used in the skin and below the skin to return a more youthful fullness to facial features. The length of time they last differs from filler to filler and from patient to patient. The best way to determine what is right for an individual is to come in for a complimentary consultation. The procedure is performed in the office the same day if desired. No anesthesia is necessary for most of the injection, and the results are immediate and dependable.
To protect the privacy of our patients, pictures of actual pre- and post-treatment patients will only be showing during your consultation.
