Advanced & novel injection techniques allow us to achieve enhanced cheekbones, jawline, chin, non-surgical nose contouring and non-surgical facial slimming
Dr. Malik uses FDA approved dermal fillers such as JUVEDERM VOLUMA, JUVEDERM VOLBELLA and RADIESSE to enhance your natural, youthful facial contours. She uses BOTOX for facial slimming, jaw reduction and contouring the width of the face. FDA approved dermal fillers can be safely injected in key areas of the face with advanced injection techniques. Use of blunt cannula for certain injection techniques makes the treatment safer, more comfortable and with far less downtime than traditional injection techniques. For non-surgical facial contouring, we use the following treatments:
Dermal fillers for contouring of mid face and cheeks
Dermal Fillers for cheek bones and Jawline enhancement
Dermal fillers for non-surgical nose correction
Dermal Fillers for non-surgical chin enhancement
BOTOX for jaw reduction
BOTOX for facial slimming
The key to dermal filler injection is to take into account individual face shape and air to the side of caution to avoid the “over-filled” or “pneumatic” appearance. We always tell our patients to have a small amount and come back for a touch up if needed. It is virtually impossible to achieve the facial contours that you had 20 years ago with dermal fillers, due to the changes in bone structure and muscle mass. We do not aim to correct every wrinkle and fold, we like to aim for a natural looking face with an overall improvement of deep wrinkles, folds and contours. We have found our patients are happiest with a subtle improvement in overall appearance.
Fat Changes With Aging:
A youthful face has the right amount of facial fat in the subdermal layers in all the right places for healthy and plump facial contours. Age-related loss of fat from key areas, redistribution of fat to less desirable areas and separation of facial fatty layers account for some of the changes in face shape and loss of facial contours. As we age, we lose fat from upper face; the forehead, temples and upper/middle cheeks and deposit fat in other areas such as lower face, jawline and neck; this leads to the well-known “inversion” of the ideal youthful heart-shaped face.
Flattening and sagging of cheek fat pads leads to contour deficiencies. To further compound the problem, the sub-dermal fat deposits tend to be separated leading to the appearance of longitudinal depressions instead of a smooth, tight layer of fat.
Bone Changes With Aging:
There is a significant loss of facial bone volume with age. Your face bone structure changes are due to bone resorption and bone expansion. Bone resorption leads to biometric volume loss. Bone expansion leads to flattening of bony prominences of a youthful face, like cheekbones and well-defined jawline. Without the structural support of bone, there are noticeable changes in the other layers of overlying soft tissue and skin.
The key to desired and aesthetically pleasing results is to aim for “softening” of signs of aging while preserving your natural face shape. 100% correction of each individual fold and wrinkles leads to the “over-done” look and takes away from your natural facial beauty.
