Injectable Filler in Beverly Hills

What Are Injectables and Fillers

As collagen and elastin start breaking down, signs of facial aging emerge in the form of visible nasolabial folds, volume loss and deep facial lines and wrinkles. Injectables refer to products such as the neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Juveau , or many a variety of filling agents including your own fat, that can be injected into these areas to help reverse the visible signs of aging.

Neuromodulators/Botox/Beverly Hills

Botox, short for botulinum toxin, is the most popular and is the original protein neuromodulator used. It has a long track record and is the name most patients recognize. Botox temporarily paralyzes certain facial muscles, reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. Dysport, Xeomin, and Juveau are all different brands of a similar protein that prevents or decreases the ability of a muscle to contract. While there are small difference between them, great results can be achieved by them all.

While most think of these products to treat the 11 lines between their brows, there are many other areas on the face it can be used. Other common uses include softening the horizontal lines of the brows as well as giving the brows a slight elevation, the “brow lift in a bottle”. Dr. Edween regularly use to treat crows feet, the fine lines under the eyes, chin dimpling and lipstick lines and the downturn corners of the mouth.

Facial wrinkles are produced by repeated patterns of movement and exacerbated by other factors such as sun exposure and smoking. Botox reverses this process by relaxing the muscles responsible. When used in moderation and by a surgeon with Dr. Edween’s good knowledge of facial anatomy, it softens up wrinkles but allows the ability to form facial expressions She has a light touch and has techniques that enable her to smooth out facial wrinkles while maintaining your ability to move, avoiding the fear of that “frozen look”.

Botox results become apparent within a few days. The injections wear out after several months, so they will need to be repeated to maintain your results.

Who Does the Injections?

Many offices will allow their nursing staff or others to perform the filler injections. Dr. Edween has perfected her technique, emphasizing natural curves and restoring youthful contour. She personally injects 100% of her filler patients, giving them assurance of continuity of care and confidence that they will achieve a rejuvenated result that looks natural and youthful.
