here is an increasing trend towards consumers desire for non-surgical alternatives. They are non-invasive, affordable and provide immediate improvement. They can be performed before or after surgical procedures, and they may give patients a small “psychological” boost, delaying the need for more invasive procedures. Patients that have fillers performed may also have interest in taking care of their skin through professional skin care. The following facial fillers are currently utilized in our practice:
At your consultation, Dr. James Matas will help you develop a treatment plan that’s right for you. He’ll explain the type of injectable product to bring about the best results and the suggested quantity. In some cases, your treatment can be administered immediately following consultation!
He will advise you to avoid using aspirin, ibuprofen or Vitamin E before your treatment, as this may increase bleeding and bruising at the injection sites. He may also recommend you take Arnica Montana after injection, to minimize bruising and swelling, and a small dosage is available for purchase in our office at your request.
Before treatment is performed, a topical anesthetic will be administered for your comfort. A series of small injections place the filler material beneath the skin and into the areas that require improvement. Since you are awake during treatment, you can provide Dr. Matas with immediate feedback on the correction he makes in each area. Treatment takes just a few minutes and you may drive yourself back to work or home. Depending upon the type of treatment, mild redness, bruising and tenderness may be experienced, but can usually be covered with makeup after treatment.
Bothersome lines and wrinkles will be gone…lips will be fuller… without the risk and expense of a surgical procedure. While the treatment effects are temporary, periodic touch-up injections can help you maintain the desired degree of correction all year long.
