Turning back the clock when it comes to aging doesn’t always mean going in for a surgical procedure. Increasingly patients are turning to other interventions that are less invasive and performed as outpatient procedures with minimal to virtually no recovery time. Dr. Samuel Pearl and Dr. Alexander Ereso are highly qualified to perform an array of specialized procedures that can provide significant anti-aging benefits and make you feel youthful and invigorated.
One option for anti-aging results is to get Botox treatment. Botox is comprised of a protein derived from the Botulism toxin that has the ability to relax and paralyze certain muscles and to smooth out the overlying wrinkles. Botox treatment involves a series of targeted injections that temporarily counteract the effects of aging by relaxing the muscles in a specific area. The effects of Botox can be seen within a week of treatment and last up to six months.
Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler used to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and produce a more youthful appearance. Juvederm is particularly well suited for several common types of wrinkles, including:
- Crow’s feet (around the corners of the eyes)
- Nasolabial folds (extend from the nose to the mouth)
- Marionette lines (extend from the outer corners of the mouth to the chin)
A variant of Juvederm called Juvederm Voluma has been developed specifically for the mid-face region, and restores age-related volume loss to the cheeks and can last up to two years!
The Pearl-Ereso Plastic Surgery Center also offers Kybella injectable treatment, a non-surgical option that targets and eliminates fat underneath the chin. Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. The acid targets fat cells, and literally melts fat away.
Results can start to be seen after a month, with final results appearing within three to four months. Downtime after a Kybella treatment is minimal, and side effects can include some swelling and redness that generally only last for a day or two.
Dr. Pearl and Dr. Ereso look forward to reviewing all of our minimally invasive non-surgical treatment options with you. Please call Pearl-Ereso Plastic Surgery Center at (650) 964-6600 for a consultation.
