With all of the different tools available there are many different options for us to assist you with your needs.

One of the newer areas for enhancement of the face is the midface – under the eyes and the cheeks. In the past cheek implants were utilized to lift this area and shape the face. Now it is even easier utilizing firmer fillers such as Restylane we are able to lift this area and shape the cheeks, lift the lips and smooth out the baggy eyes. The unwanted side effects of injectable fillers are, bruising, swelling, discoloration, some minor aches and pains, possible infection, embolization of the filler and tissue necrosis. While these unwanted effects are rare they can and do happen. Most of them are only temporary and resolve with time. However it is important to visit a well trained physician whom can care for you should some of the unwanted issues develop. Blindness has been reported as has nerve pain. In our office we will go over the risks and discuss the possibilities with you thoroughly. We want your experience to be comfortable and results to be beautiful. On occasion Neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport can enhance the results especially when combined with Profractional Laser and MicroLaserPeels
