Restylane®, Juvederm® and Fat Injections are ideal for the following:
- Smoothing out deep wrinkles, furrows, and creases in the skin
- Adding a fuller, more sensuous look to the lips
- Filling in “sunken” cheeks and other skin depressions often associated with facial aging
Restylane and Juvederm are clear gels that are injected into selected areas of the face, helping to maintain skin volume and provide a more youthful appearance. They are natural compounds, so there is minimal risk of allergic reactions or side effects. There is not much discomfort associated with the injections, and the procedure takes approximately 30 minutes. Results can be seen immediately and last six to twelve months.
A patient’s own fat can be used to fill facial creases, often with long lasting results. Often, this is done in conjunction with liposuction of fatty areas. Especially in the very thin woman or man, fat injections can help make up for the loss of youthful appearing facial fullness.
