Various fillers are used to fill where collagen and volume are needed. This is also known as the Lunch Hour Facelift. Most of the time, this can be performed on anyone regardless of their medical problems. The fillers that are used in our office are made of natural substances compatible to the normal constituents of the skin. We do not promote synthetic fillers in our practice, only biodegradable. Side effects include bruising due to the tiny capillaries and blood vessels in the area of injection. Botox can be used to relax areas of tight muscle bands such as the glabella, forehead, and marionette lines and to raise the corners of the lips. We also do eyelifts and remove bumps on the nose as well as narrow wide bridges and raise the tip of the nose. The effect is seen immediately with the fillers. Neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin take a few days longer. There is minimal discomfort, as the patient is numbed. Most people go back to work after the procedure.
Our oldest patient is 86 years old. The youngest is 39. Patients can do as much or as little as they feel comfortable with at a time.
