Non-Surgical Facial Aesthetics
These short procedures are minimally-invasive ways to enhance your facial appearance without surgery and with minimal downtime. Even though many places utilize non-doctors (nurses or estheticians) for these procedures, in our office, only the licensed surgeons perform all, even non-surgical facial aesthetic procedures. Our surgeons are board-certified by the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery or American Board of Aesthetic Medicine or hold Elective Cosmetic Surgery Permit. So rest assured that all your treatment will be provided by specialist expert doctors.
BOTOX Cosmetic works to smooth moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines by temporarily reducing the underlying facial muscle activities. It works on most of the wrinkle lines of the face – between eyebrows, forehead, around the eyes, around the nose, and around the mouth. Botox injections are also used to create slimmer face by reducing the bulkiness of the jaw muscles. Furthermore, Botox can be used to treat certain facial pain and headaches by relaxing specific facial and masticatory muscles, such as TMJ Disorders. These injections are virtually painless because we use the finest and smallest needles possible. We are Brilliant Distinctions provider with Allergan for discounts on treatments in our office.
Dermal Fillers replenish lost facial volume with naturally occurring substances. Restylane products and Juvederm products are particles of natural hyaluronic acid injected into the facial tissues for the correction of moderate to severe facial folds such as nasolabial folds, tear trough defects, and lip enhancements. They are also used to provide volume directly and by new collagen formation, to correct the volume loss and hollowness associated with facial aging.
Radiesse, a calcium based filler is used to sculpt the face with more defined features such as sharper nose, high cheeks, defined chin, and round forehead. “Non-surgical nose job” refers to using these dermal fillers to re-shape the nose. For many people who are not sure about getting a surgery to make permanent changes to their nose, cheekbones, or chin, getting dermal fillers can give them the desired look without having the permanency or risks of their surgical counterparts. Dermal filler injections are painless because local anesthesia is used to numb the area.
Thread Lifts provide non-surgical ways delicately lift the soft tissues to recreate the “V-shape” of the face. A beautiful and healthy face has a “V-shape”. As we age, gravity and skin laxity pull the facial soft tissues down, causing this “V-shape” to get lost. Absorbable PDO (Polydioxanone) Threads are placed in the correct level under the skin with needles then pulled to give lifting and also allow for more collagen formation in the area, treating the sagging midface, defining the jaw line or the entire face. The threads are eventually dissolved naturally but the effect may last up to 15 months. This procedure is done under local anesthesia in minutes with minimal discomfort, risk and downtime.
PRP Microneedling is a safe & effective way to rejuvenate your facial skin. This procedure is much safer than light therapy such as lasers, especially for darker skin subtypes. Using your own growth factors and stem cells extracted from your blood combining with micro-needling technique, it can reduce pores, reduce scars, reduce hyperpigmentation & sun damage, reduce fine lines & wrinkles, improve skin tone, and give skin a firmer & smooth texture with a fresh glow. Although microneedling can be done by itself with application of vitamin C or different products, we only perform it with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) from your own blood, for faster healing, more collagen synthesis, and better results. Only topical anesthesia to numb the face is needed.
Customized facial contouring and liquid facial lifting as well as gummy smile reduction, lip lifts & many facial enhancements are available using combination of above materials in a treatment tailored just for you.
