Botox® and Facial Fillers can re-contour your face and restore a more youthful appearance
Soften wrinkles, eliminate creases, enhance your lips! From Botox® to Juvederm® to Voluma®, Volbella® and Vollure®XC, you can feel confident knowing Dr. Fredric Stern is one of the most experienced Botox and dermal filler injectors in Seattle, Bellevue and the greater eastside.
As we age, our facial contours change. Due to the effects of gravity, loss of elasticity and facial fat atrophy, wrinkles and nasal folds, commonly called “parantheses,” deepen and the face may sag, creating a tired or aged appearance.
Fortunately, there are many long-lasting facial fillers to choose from, as well as ATGRAFT™ fat transfer options available to correct these problems and restore a more youthful appearance.
Juvederm XC®, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC® and VollureXC® are commonly used in nasolabial folds (“parentheses”) and marionette lines. Voluma XC® and Radiesse® are great for contouring the cheeks and creating a “lifting” effect of the mid and lower face. Volbella XC® is the latest filler that can improve bothersome “lipstick lines” as well as subtly augment the lips, creating a fresher, more youthful look.
In addition to the face, Dr. Stern has had great results injecting fillers into the hands to reduce the appearance of prominent veins and crepy skin.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. Depending which filler is used, the effect may last from 6 months up to 2 years.
What areas can be treated with dermal fillers?
Almost any area of the face may be safely injected with dermal filler to reduce wrinkles, restore lost volume, or recontour the cheeks, nose or lips. Other parts of the body, including the hands may be injected with filler to fill contour defects, reduce unsightly veins and restore a more youthful appearance.
With so many exciting, new 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.
Are you tired of changes brought about in your appearance because of aging? Botox® can be used to soften the vertical “eleven” frown-lines between your eyebrows, horizontal wrinkles on your forehead, crow’s feet around your eyes, even the downturned “marionette lines” at the corners of the mouth. In many cases, Botox® can be injected to create a non-surgical “brow lift”, relax lipstick lines, as well as wrinkles and bands of the neck.
In addition, Botox® has been shown to effectively reduce excessive sweating of the underarms, hands and feet, uncomfortable conditions known as hyperhidrosis.
