When the holidays roll around, you don’t want to look good, you want to look your holiday best! Botox and dermal fillers can work wonders, and these quick-but-effective rejuvenation options are a great choice for all genders.
Botox and fillers have become a mainstay because they work so well to help your youthful good looks. Many of our patients at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery consider these injections a regular regimen, just as they use quality skin care products to maintain healthy skin. But with any special occasion or celebration approaching, it’s time to take a closer look at your face.
Something for Everyone
It’s not unusual for Dr. Hernandez to use more than one type of filler during a treatment session (with or without Botox), since many patients have more than one concern. You might have fine lines or deeper wrinkles and also lost volume with saggy skin. These issues affect different parts of the face in different people.
Fortunately, our Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez says there is no limit to the number of fillers she can use at any given time. That means she can recommend a combination that precisely addresses all your concerns.
This is why we offer such a wide array of filler options, along with Botox, of course. To look your holiday best, Dr. Hernandez especially recommends:
Botox for wrinkles on the upper face
Smoothing the lines on your forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet can make you look happier and better-rested as well as more youthful.
Renuva, Bellafill, or Radiesse to replace lost volume in the face
Renuva is unique in that it is made of allograft adipose (fat) matrix derived from processed human fat tissue. This all-natural product increases volume by regenerating and supporting new fat cells so results are very long-lasting.
Bellafill is a collagen-based gel that provides immediate results and also stimulates growth of new collagen for ongoing improvement. Tiny microspheres within the gel remain in place to support new collagen as it is produced, so results last up to 5 years. Dr. Hernandez likes this product to boost volume in the cheeks, under the eyes, and at the temples.
Radiesse is also effective to re-plump deep smile lines as well as the cheeks and temples. It also triggers new collagen production, so results last about a year.
Voluma to contour the nose
This product is part of the popular Juvéderm family of injectable fillers. While it is an effective option to restore lost volume in the cheeks, Dr. Hernandez especially likes it for nose contouring. Many patients don’t realize that the right filler can significantly improve minor imperfections or asymmetry in the nose.
Radiesse to contour the jawline
A smoother jawline can refresh the appearance of your entire face, but many fillers don’t work well in this area. Radiesse does, though, and as noted above results usually last a full year.
And don’t forget your hands – so visible in person and even during Zoom gatherings! Dr. Hernandez uses both Bellafill and Radiesse to add volume to the backs of the hands. You’ll be surprised what a difference that can make!
Holiday Best, Indeed!
Year-end holidays aside, 2021 will be filled with holidays and special occasions, and you will want to look your best for every one of them. Dr. Hernandez recommends that you schedule most treatments at least 3 to 7 days before any big event, so your face has time to relax and effects to be most noticeable.
If you come see us right now, you’ll be ready to start the new year celebrating a face that looks smoother and fresher.
