Facial imperfections are common for patients who are aging. This includes fine lines and wrinkles that can impact any area of the face. While Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee is a board-certified plastic surgeon, she also offers a selection of non-surgical treatments for men and women to consider. This includes two popular cosmetic injectables such as Juvéderm and Restylane.
What is a dermal filler?
Juvéderm and Restylane are both dermal fillers. These are special gels that are formulated with hyaluronic acid to add volume directly where they are injected. When injected into wrinkles and folds of the face, patients will notice immediate smoothing of their aging skin. Juvéderm and Restlyane continue to be the most popular non-surgical treatments used to address the unwanted signs of aging.
What can I expect during my filler appointment?
Before patients schedule an appointment to have their injections completed, they need to find out if they are a proper candidate first. Candidates are adult men and women who have imperfections on the face including wrinkles, fine lines, and folds that are contributing to an aging appearance. During a consultation appointment, patients can ask questions to Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee to determine if her recommendations are a proper fit for their unique needs.
After patients decide to move forward with dermal fillers, their skin is thoroughly cleansed and the injections prepared. The injections are done in the areas where wrinkles and folds appear. This may be anywhere on the face but more typically around the eyes, nose, and mouth. These lines may be superficial or very deep depending on the patient’s unique circumstances.
Once the injections are complete, patients leave the office with aftercare instructions. Most patients leave the office and return to their regular day without downtime and recovery. Patients can also avoid scarring that is associated with plastic surgery alternatives.
