Time and age will reduce skin firmness and volume year after year. Initially, a few fine lines appear on your face, becoming more deeply etched into your skin as the years pass. You may not be ready to undergo a facelift but are unhappy to see the signs of age when you look in the mirror. What can you do? Talk to Kirkland and Bellevue plastic surgeon Dr. Tseng about his dermal fillers to experience a refreshed, more youthful look with this non-surgical treatment.
At our practice in Kirkland dermal fillers can produce a remarkable anti-aging or facial enhancement for the following facial conditions:
One of the great benefits of dermal fillers is the minimally invasive nature of the procedure. It typically takes less than an hour and involves no downtime. The key to natural-looking results is a profound understanding of facial anatomy. Kirkland dermal filler expert, Dr. Tseng, will first perform a comprehensive aesthetic evaluation to select the ideal filler formulas, optimal injection sites, and dosage amounts. Once this has been determined, his actual procedure for dermal fillers in Kirkland consists of a few gentle injections using a very fine needle. The experience is easy to tolerate, and if you are very sensitive, a topical anesthetic can be applied before your injections.
Treatments with injectables are often referred to as a “liquid facelift.” Fillers are unable to accomplish the same level of results as facial surgery and are not designed to. Cosmetic surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat, tightening muscles, and repositioning tissue. Dermal fillers have a specific purpose: temporarily restoring volume. They are a great option for mature adults who want to address the early signs of aging but are not ready for a facelift.
We use several different dermal fillers, each of which has unique benefits. The best choice for the most natural-looking, longest-lasting dermal filler will depend on the treatment area and degree of correction needed. Dr. Tseng may recommend one or more of the following:
This hyaluronic acid-based gel treats moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth area. It is a great smile line filler.
A unique formula designed specifically for deep injections to restore volume at the cheek area.
Formulated with microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, this unique filler instantly volumizes while supporting collagen remodeling for long-lasting results.
Lips are especially delicate, requiring an ultra-smooth filler for natural results. Restylane delivers beautiful natural results.
Formulated with poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra stimulates collagen formation for a natural, gradual, lasting increase in facial skin volume.
Following a treatment with dermal fillers Kirkland patients may experience some bruising and swelling. Apply ice to your skin if you have swelling. The injections sites may appear reddened, which can be covered with makeup. Bruising can be treated with arnica. For the best results, avoid alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment, and stop taking any blood-thinning medications or supplements to reduce the risk of bruising. Initially, the treated area may appear slightly overfilled due to swelling, which fades quickly.
If your lips have thinned with age, or you were born with thinner lips, lip augmentation with fillers can produce a beautiful enhancement. For the best results, have your lip injections performed by a top professional in the field. While hyaluronic acid filler treatments can be reversed, it is far better to achieve the look you envision rather than undergo a correction. At Tseng Plastic Surgery in Kirkland and Bellevue dermal fillers are used with a conservative approach, and we're dedicated to achieving a very natural look, not fake or overdone. If you want fuller, plumper, more youthful lips, or dream of having more definition at your Cupid’s bow, you can trust the skills of our injection expert.
As your skin stops producing collagen, the cheek area can sag and droop, leaving you looking older. Your cheek volume can be restored or enhanced with Juvéderm Voluma XC, with the added benefit of subtly raising the skin beneath the cheek structure. If you feel your facial structure lacks definition due to flatter cheeks, this dermal filler treatment can create a more attractive facial profile.
Wrinkles and lines can be smoothed with the precise injection of a carefully selected dermal filler. If you are seeking longer-term results, you may want to consider smoothing wrinkles with Radiesse or Sculptra. Hyaluronic acid fillers create a soft, natural look, but they will be absorbed by your body over time, requiring retreatment. Kirkland plastic surgeon, Dr. Tseng, will be happy to discuss your options, what to expect, and the results you can expect with each type of filler. He will recommend specific treatments based on your aesthetic goals.
