FACIAL REJUVENATION WITH BOTOX® AND FILLERS
Dr. Shin has extensive experience injecting therapeutic Botox® and Botox® Cosmetic, as well as Kybella®, and dermal fillers such as Juvederm® and Radiesse®.
These types of cosmetic injectables offer non-surgical solutions to wrinkles and volume loss with rapid results and minimal downtime.
Botox is a minimally invasive treatment that can treat existing facial wrinkles and help prevent more from forming by temporarily preventing the contraction of specific muscles, which results in a more relaxed and smooth appearance. Injections take only a few minutes and the result typically last 3 months.
The most commonly treated areas are:
- Horizontal lines across the forehead
- Vertical lines between the eyebrows (glabellar region)
- Crow’s feet around the outer edge of the eyes
Fillers are cosmetic injectables designed to replace facial volume lost due to age or other circumstances. Restoring this lost volume can help you achieve a more youthful appearance and decrease other signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.
The most common fillers available are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the human body, or a biocompatible material such as calcium hydroxylapatite, which stimulates your body to produce collagen. Most patients benefit from a combination of filler products.
Dr. Shin currently offers:
- Juvederm® Hylacross products: Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC
- Juvederm® Vycross products: Voluma XC, Volbella XC, and Vollure XC
- Belotero Balance®
- Radiesse® and Radiesse+®
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for submental fat, commonly referred to as a double chin, and is a less invasive alternative to liposuction.
The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown of fat cells which are then filtered out of the body through the normal metabolic process.
