With the holidays quickly approaching, many people are looking forward to family reunions and get-togethers with their closest friends. As you prepare for the upcoming festivities, you will likely want to make sure you look your best.
While some individuals desire more invasive procedures like a facelift or brow lift at our Walnut Creek practice, we also offer a variety of non-surgical ways to achieve the following:
Smooth lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows (frown lines), and around the eyes (crow’s feet): BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily paralyzes targeted facial muscles to effectively diminish fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and at the corners of the eyes. Each treatment takes just a few minutes to perform and produces noticeable results that typically last three to four months.
Add fullness to the lips: Fillers made of hyaluronic acid, such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, can immediately restore volume to enhance the lips. Injections provide immediate results and take just minutes to complete, and results usually last between six months and a year.
Reduce lines around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines): RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler contains calcium hydroxylapatite and can dramatically reduce expression lines around the nose and “smile lines” around the mouth. Results from RADIESSE® can last up to a year or more for many patients.
No Recovery Time
The best part about undergoing one or more of the above injectable treatments is that there is zero downtime needed. This ensures that you can project a more youthful facial appearance to all your friends and family without them having any hint that you underwent cosmetic treatment. However, there is occasional bruising when injecting the crow’s feet, and there can be some temporary swelling of the injection site.
