I Wanted to share with you the first reaction to my ‘new’ face.  Just after my appointment on Wednesday to get stitches removed I stoppped at the dry cleaners.  I happen to know my dry cleaner fairly well since I’ve been such a regular, weekly customer for many years.  He greeted me and said how nice I looked, but was a bit puzzled as to why.  He asked if I’d done my hair differently, and I said not really, and he said, you just look really good today like you’re 10 years younger!”   Not bad for 8 days post surgery!! I’m sure you hear these stories all the time, but I had to share it with you.    Thanks to you all!

Facial Fillers

Botox®, Juvederm® Injectable Gel, Restylane® & Perlane®, and Radiesse®.

With so many exciting, new facial fillers (also known as dermal fillers) available, how do you know which is best for you?

Though there is some overlap in their use, the various treatments have different indications and actions. After a careful examination and discussion with you regarding your goals and expectations, Dr. Stern can recommend which best suits your needs.

Like Collagen But Safer and Longer Lasting

Radiesse®, Juvederm® Injectable Gel, Restylane® and Perlane® are “fillers”; similar to Collagen, but safer and longer-lasting.

In the past, fillers were only injected into facial creases and wrinkles, resulting in a softened appearance of the wrinkles.

More recently, these longer- lasting fillers are being used successfully for facial recontouring, to enhance the cheek, chin, nose and jaw line, as well the usual nasal folds, corners of the mouth and “lipstick lines.”

Lip Enhancement and Wrinkles

For lip enhancement and superficial wrinkles, Dr. Stern prefers Juvederm® Injectable Gel or Restylane®. Both of these fillers are composed of synthetic hyaluronic acid, a safe and smooth, natural component of connective tissue. The effect lasts about six months or longer.

Radiesse® is the longest acting filler.

Radiesse® is a synthetic compound comprised of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite. It is excellent for filling in deep facial creases and areas of atrophy or depression, including smile lines, and acne scars, as well as enhancing facial contours such as the cheeks, chin and even the nose. The effect lasts about 12- 18 mos. and the results are immediate and often dramatic.

Why Choose Dr. Stern?

Dr. Stern is an instructor of both the Radiesse® Medical Education Faculty and the Botox® Cosmetic National Education Faculty, and instructs other physicians from around the U.S. in the proper facial injection techniques of these products.

Dr. Stern was chosen by Allergan, Inc., the makers of Botox® and Juvederm®, as one of only a very few physicians in the Seattle Bellevue area to be able to offer Juvederm® several months prior to the general release of the product in 2007.

In addition, unlike many offices in the Seattle area, Dr. Stern performs all of the facial injections himself.
