Treatment for Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Sunken Areas or Thin Lips
Aging is inevitable, but thankfully there are ways to slow down the process. Numerous dermal fillers, such as: Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, or Voluma, represent some of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures today. And while candidates have many options for these in Austin, TX, Dr. John McFate is known for his precision.
Over time, depressions can develop in the skin between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), corners of the mouth (marionette lines), and the cheek area. Volume deficient areas in the lips and cheeks can also become apparent.
Restylane or other dermal fillers are made of a formulation known as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a normal component of your skin structure, and when injected as part of a dermal filler product, it results in a lessening of wrinkles and correcting of depressions and areas void of volume.
AM I A CANDIDATE?
A person with deep wrinkles in the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and/or deficient volume of the lips and/or cheeks may be a candidate for a dermal filler injectable, such as the ones mentioned. It is recommended that patients avoid blood thinning medications and expect reasonable results.
After our Austin area Juvederm or other dermal filler candidates consult with Dr. McFate, he will help you determine a plan for you to meet your individual goals. A treatment can be performed in the office on the same visit. Anesthetic cream is applied to the treatment areas providing as little pain as possible. The procedure takes around 15-30 minutes and instant results can be seen.
Patients can plan for results to last 6-9 months before requiring a repeat treatment. You may also be a candidate for Botox and other skin care products. Dr. McFate can help you determine which injectables are appropriate for your needs. Please be sure to look at our Austin area cosmetic surgery web site for specials on Botox and other injectables.
