Best facial filler enhancements for hollow tear troughs and fine lines?
Treatment suggestions
Mar 14, 2022
Thanks for your questions and helpful photos. It would be best for you to see a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon in person for an evaluation of how your face moves, check the skin and structures of the face under different lighting, and to talk about your goals. Fillers are usually a good option to start with, along with some preventative neurotoxins such as Botox, Xeomin, or Jeuveau. Make sure you are using a quality mineral sunscreen every day to protect your investment…
4 years after under eye dermal filler. Problems have remained – what can I do?
Undereye problems
Mar 14, 2022
I would definitely recommend seeing an oculoplastic surgeon for treatment of this area. A lot can go wrong with filler placed directly under the eyes, and only a very skilled expert should do any further work on that area. You will need to have whatever filler is remaining dissolved with hyaluronidase if you had a HA filler placed originally. Make sure you know what product was injected so your surgeon can come up with a management plan. Fillers that are not hyaluronic acid, such as…
Should nasolabial fillers be done at the same time as filler for acne scars?
Different fillers at the same appointment
Mar 9, 2022
Thanks for your question. Definitely multiple types of fillers can be injected in one appointment, but your dermatologist might want to do one area at a time to see how the first treatment settles. Sometimes you might not need as much as originally planned if you get a lot of improvement from one treatment. Talk to your doctor about the plan and I am sure they can give you an explanation for why or why not they might treat several areas at once. Please see an expert, and best of luck!
Are there long-term effects to using fillers/partial buccal fat was removed?
Options for facial volume
Feb 21, 2022
Thanks for your question. I am not sure where you read those long term effects of fillers – that is simply not true. Maybe the author meant that use of neuromodulators, such as Botox and Xeomin, can cause some muscle atrophy, but I have not heard of fillers doing that. Anyway, I would recommend a consult with a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist with experience in revolumizing the face. They will be able to assess your face at rest and in motion and help come up with a…
How deep are DAO injections?
DAO treatment
Feb 18, 2022
Thanks for your question. Treating the DAO is a very simple and quick procedure with great results when done properly. The needles are very tiny and the medication is injected quite superficially in the muscles of facial expression, so not deep at all. Please see an experienced board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon with experience in treating this area, and I hope you have a lovely outcome!
