Fillers and BOTOX for the Holidays
The holidays often involve getting dressed up in fancy attire while navigating the holiday party circuit. With all the festive parties and events held during the holiday season, this time of year offers a great opportunity to catch up with family members, friends and colleagues you may not get a chance to see during other times of the year. To help you look your best for all the seasonal soirées you will attend this holiday season, Dr. Sheena Kong offers a range of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, including dermal filler and BOTOX treatments.
Injectable dermal filler treatment is an effective way to fill in — and thus smooth out — facial wrinkles as well as enhance fullness in areas of the face that are lacking volume. At the San Francisco medical spa of Dr. Kong, one of the most requested dermal filler is hyaluronic acid-based Juvéderm. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that helps the skin retain moisture, making Juvéderm a great choice for patients who desire plumper, healthier skin with fewer lines and wrinkles. Specifically, Juvéderm can be used to treat any or all of the following:
- Facial lines that develop around the corners of the mouth
- Wrinkles that extend from the outer corners of the nose to the outer corners of the lips
- Loose skin
- Thin lips
Dr. Kong offers Juvéderm Ultra XC, the next generation in Juvéderm products, which includes lidocaine to make treatment as comfortable as possible. Dr. Kong also uses Juvéderm Voluma XC to restore mid-face volume loss.
In addition, Dr. Kong offers hyaluronic acid-based fillers Restylane and Perlane as alternative treatment options that also rejuvenate the face.
The results from dermal filler treatment last up to 12 months, with Juvéderm Voluma XC results lasting up to two years.
BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is also designed to improve the look of wrinkles, but it works in a different way than Juvéderm treatment does. When injected, BOTOX Cosmetic temporarily suspends muscle movement in the treatment area, thereby smoothing out the overlying wrinkles. It works best to address the following aesthetic concerns:
- Horizontal forehead furrows
- Vertical lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet around the outside corners of the eyes
- Wrinkles on the nose or lips
- Chin dimpling
- Horizontal neck bands
- Overly active sweat glands
Dr. Kong also offers Dysport, which works very similarly to BOTOX. The result lasts three to four months.
