Time takes its toll on all of us, leaving more visible signs of aging every year. The texture of your skin changes, and it loses elasticity and fullness, leading to fine lines and visible wrinkles. Fat deposits in your face can also shrink away, leaving you looking gaunt and sunken.
However, you don’t have to live with the visible effects of aging. Today’s cosmetic treatments can make a world of difference.
If you’re interested in rolling back these age-related changes in your appearance, but don’t want to go under the knife for cosmetic plastic surgery, you should know about the anti-aging potential of cosmetic injectables such as Botox® and dermal fillers.
Dr. Raymond Douglas provides a full range of nonsurgical cosmetic injectable options from our state-of-the-art offices in Beverly Hills and Long Beach, California. You can come in to talk to us about how cosmetic injectables could help with your anti-aging and appearance-related goals.
BotoxⓇ injections selectively paralyze the facial muscles that wrinkle and cause visible facial lines when you speak and make expressions.
With Dr. Douglas’s expert hand, you don’t need to worry about loss of expressiveness due to Botox. He uses just enough Botox to smooth out your wrinkles.
Botox works well to address lines across your forehead, frown lines between your brows, and crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes. Botox can even help keep new facial lines from forming. Botox treatments remain effective for 3-6 months, and you can come in for maintenance treatments to keep your face looking fresh.
Other cosmetic injectables
For the bottom half of your face, cosmetic injectable fillers might be the best solution. Fillers can recontour areas of your face, restoring the volume you’ve lost with age and smoothing out lines and wrinkles.
We offer multiple types of cosmetic injectables, allowing you to target your specific areas of concern.
You can choose from options including:
- Restylane®, a hyaluronic acid filler that fills in deep wrinkles around your nose and lips, and effectively plumps up hollow or sagging areas of your face, with results lasting as long as 18 months
- Sculptra®, a poly-L-lactic acid filler that fills in hollow cheeks and other sunken facial features, with results lasting up to two years
- Jeuveau™, similar to Botox, reduces the appearance of forehead frown lines by selectively paralyzing muscles around the injection area
Kybella® is a different type of injectable that eliminates the fat deposits that form a double chin. It requires about six treatments for full results.
