Aesthetic Injections in Beverly Hills
Since I began injecting fillers in 1994 the quality and number of choices of materials has grown exponentially. With improved products that have less risk of allergy, reactions, or pain and that last much longer I have expanded my usage to take care of all sorts of bothersome issues. I was fortunate to be in on the ground level with both Restylane and Juvederm and participated as a clinical investigator for the FDA trials; giving me a very early and insightful experience from which to draw on. I also happened to begin my fellowship training just after the first ever report of Botox for cosmetic uses was published; again giving me a head start with this fantastic drug. I researched and published the first-ever paper on using Botox for the purpose of elevating the eyebrow and subsequently became one of the world’s leading experts for this. All of my experiences have given me a comfort with these injections and helped me to address many subtle details and imperfections to provide for refined improvements.
When it comes to these injectables I want to emphasize that you, the patient, should merely articulate what bothers you and what you are hoping to achieve, and leave the decisions of exactly what needs to be utilized and how much up to me. Of course, once I decide on a game plan I will discuss it with you so that you understand my thought process. When large volume is required for the purposes of rejuvenation I often consider using fat. However, there are many advantages to using the above fillers for volumization as well as for fine lines, wrinkles, changing the brow or corners of the mouth or even rejuvenating earlobes. I can eliminate dimples in the chin or even increase chin projection with Botox or Dysport and often times provide for a stronger jaw line with Juvederm or Restylane. Often I can use fillers to stave off the need for surgery for several years and sometimes fillers and neurotoxins are necessary to enhance the results of an extensive surgery. There are times when some filler is helpful in the nose or when Dysport can help to shrink a large salivary gland that’s causing a bulge. The main point here is that there are many things that can be creatively used for all types of purposes and that every individual requires careful analysis to determine what and how to go about reaching the established goal.
