Injectables are an appealing option for patients with early to moderate signs of aging, and others who are not quite ready for surgery. A local anesthetic is all that may be required and the in-office sessions usually take less than 45 minutes. Immediately afterwards the patient can continue on with his or her normal routine. Patients have their choice of injectables that produce results ranging from temporary or permanent.

Injectable fillers, such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, Sculptra®, work well:

In softening wrinkles and smiles lines (nasiolabial folds)
Plumping or augmenting the lips, and filling in lip lines
Restoring volume in the jaw line
Filling the hollows under the eyes that create the impression of dark circles.

Injectables are also adjuvant procedures in some cosmetic surgeries. With most injectables, patients are able to immediately return to their normal routine. Injectables which provide only temporary results will require repeat treatments in order to maintain the improvement. There are generally very few side effects associated with injectables such as minimal redness and bruising.

Non Surgical Correction

In some patients who are either not ready for surgery, or are not surgical candidates just yet, there is a non-surgical approach to rejuvenation of the eyes. As the eye frame hollows over time, shadows become apparent and are frequently the cause of an aged look. Fillers (or injectable products) can be placed within the hollows to reverse the signs of aging. In addition, these products tend to last 18-24 months.

Marionette lines

A marionette is another word for a puppet. These lines are found from the corners of the mouth down to the chin and are usually formed from loss of volume in that area. Clients usually say that they look angry or sad, when they aren’t. These areas can be nicely filled out using either Restylane or Juvederm. Please see before and after pictures to see how filling out the marionette lines look.

Smile Lines

Like to laugh? Smile lines happen when the muscles that control your smile around the mouth pull on the skin. Grooves can also form at the corners of the nose as we age and both of these issues can be solved with a filler injection. It is a simple procedure that has immediate results.

Non Surgical eyelid lift

Many of us in Los Angeles work long hours pursuing our dreams. This usually leads to a lack of sleep and worse, tired looking eyes. One of the most common complaints are “tired looking eyes” caused by bags under the eyes and crow’s feet wrinkles on the outside skin of the eyes. In the past, the only option was surgery, to remove those bags and get that refreshed look. Now, with the use of injectibles such as Botox or Dysport, along with Restylane injections, you can get a non-surgical eyelid lift that will give that refreshed look without going under the knife. Take a look at some before and after pictures to see the results for yourself. It is a procedure done in the office, takes about 20-30 minutes, and has minimal downtime. Numbing cream is used to decrease any discomfort. Results last about 18-24 months for Restylane injections, and about 3-4 months for either Dysport or Botox. Come in for a non-surgical liquid eyelift and you can see the results immediately.

Lip Augmentation

It’s no questions that everyone wants to have those luscious, kissable lips. They want those full, powty lips with definition that they either never had, or had when they were younger. Now with Juvederm injections, you can have those lips you wanted within about 15 minutes. Juvederm contains a molecule that is found within the skin, so it gives natural looking results. You won’t get those duck lips, just natural, defined, and plump lips. Numbing cream or a dental block (similar to going to the dentist) can be used to minimize any discomfort. After numbing, clients do not feel the injections and are ready to get back to their life right afterwards.
