Fillers - Juvederm, Restylane
Coast Dermatology Medical Associates offers the most advanced and AFFORDABLE filler options. Restylane, Juvederm are two of the products which can be injected into the skin to lift lips, cure wrinkles & furrows and to fill cheeks which experience fat loss in middle age. Once in your skin, they create volume and stimulate collagen to improve the appearance of deep frown lines, wrinkles, and furrows for a more natural and sensuous look. In contrast to other implants, Restylane is not taken from animals. This means there is no risk of allergic reaction. Therefore, it is perfectly safe and do not need any type of pre-testing.
Before Treatment After Treatment
What areas respond best to the treatment?
Fine lines on the upper and lower lips (that are not severe enough to require laser resurfacing) smooth and fill nicely with fillers. Deeper wrinkles and folds in the cheek area or the corner of the mouth respond very well to thicker fillers which are all always available in our office (no pre-ordering required, but we do suggest making an appointment!) Lip enhancement with these new products lasts twice as long as with the standard collagen therapy that was used in the past.
How will I look after my treatment?
Following your injections, normal activities can be resumed immediately. Discomfort is minimal, the treatment site may have a little swelling which may last a few hours. There may be some slight bruising which can be covered with makeup.
How long does it last?
Depending on the areas treated, most folds and wrinkles may require a second treatment four to six weeks after the first treatment session. The repeated maintenance treatment is not required for all people. These products last anywhere from six months to one year (and sometimes longer depending on the individual).
