It’s a good idea to be cautious before embarking on any course of treatment, but there several tips that apply especially to patients who are considering injectable-based therapies.
The most important decision you’ll make before deciding on any injectable-based treatment is not which product to use, but who is to perform the treatment. Injectable treatments are available from practitioners with a very wide range of qualifications. But there can be a huge difference between the lowest and highest qualified person, and choosing the most experienced and skillful doctor to perform your treatment is the best way to go. Always make sure to schedule a face-to-face meeting with them before your treatment.
Being able to gauge the correct amount of injectable to use and the precise location of each injection is where the skill of your doctor will become evident. An experienced practitioner will tailor each treatment to match the particular characteristics of each patient – they’ll carefully check how your facial muscles move when you smile, frown, and raise your eyebrows. The primary aim of a treatment is to avoid creating any unnatural-looking facial expressions, while still treating the problems that you want to address. A prudent doctor will also avoid making large-scale changes in a single treatment, preferring instead to provide gradual improvements over time. This is not only a cautious way to proceed, but it also makes improvements to your looks seem to be a naturally-occurring process.
Whatever questions or concerns you may have after a treatment, don’t hesitate to contact your doctor. They may be able to reassure you that changes are proceeding as planned, but they may also recommend use of certain creams or ointments to alleviate any side-effects that you may experience.
Your experience after a treatment can also be used to modify any future treatments that you have scheduled – not all patients react the same way to every treatment, and your doctor will want to ensure that you get the very best results from every visit. And of course, once you’ve found a doctor who knows how best to treat your problem areas, any future visits will be correspondingly more effective.

Impact of Aging on Cheek Area
As we age we may lose volume and elasticity in the cheek area. This is caused by atrophy of subcutaneous fat.
Newer products such as Juvederm Voluma XC can help alleviate this common cosmetic problem.
Raising the Bar (and Your Cheeks)
- Provide volume and offer a lifting effect on the cheeks
- Fill in sunken areas in the cheek area
- Last 18-24 months
A Natural Impact
Voluma contains Hyaluronic Acid, which is a natural substance found in our body. Because of that, its effects can be easily reversed if you don’t like your results.
The Treatment You Can Trust
Voluma has been specifically approved by the FDA for filling the cheek area.

Shaving happens to be a phenomenal exfoliation method that helps men maintain a healthy skin as they age. Shaving is a very simple way to mechanically remove dead skin cells, which helps skincare products absorb better and it also tends to improve overall skin complexion.
However, exfoliation alone is not enough to prevent all signs of aging. Volume loss, for example, may result in a hollowed and sunken appearance of one’s facial features. Facial volume loss often requires robust treatments performed by aesthetic medical professionals if patients hope to achieve lasting improvements.
Dermal fillers are injectable medications that are specially formulated to combat facial volume loss. Men tend to respond well to hyaluronic based fillers that are effective enough to plump up trouble areas for several months. Juvederm Volbella, for example, works particularly well to fill the hollow areas under the eyes and Juvederm Voluma can be used on the chin area to create more definition along the jawline.

Full, luscious lips are one of the most desirable traits in the world. However, due to age or genetics many find themselves disappointed with how their lips look. If you are one of these people there are a number of cosmetic treatments available to achieve more beautiful lips.
Many choose to overdraw their lips with liners to give the illusion of a perfect pout, but this is a temporary solution that often gives a very dated look to your makeup. Celebrities and beauty aficionados are increasingly turning to lip fillers as their means to obtain a smile that’s both sexy and attractive.
Our favorite lip fillers have hyaluronic acid as their main component. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body that has the remarkable ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Its impressive moisture retention abilities help the skin look supple and plump, and this ingredient is also incredibly effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Patients who receive lip fillers based on hyaluronic acid are truly receiving the best lip enhancement treatment available. The results last up to six to nine months, and patients see improvement in appearance of their lips immediately. These lip fillers are also completely reversible if you are in any way unsatisfied with the look of your augmented lips.
Lip fillers, in general, work to soften fine lines and increase the volume of the lips. However, not all lip fillers are created equal. Before you seek treatment, you should find a reputable aesthetic physician who understands how different formulations of fillers can better augment the lips. At Your Laser Skin Care, we utilize the most advanced lip fillers available on the market, and with each patient we carefully consider their facial anatomy before augmenting their lips.

As we age, wrinkles gradually develop all over our bodies, including our necks. The weakening of neck muscles plays a big role in this process since these are the muscles that help keep the skin on our neck tight and smooth. It’s not uncommon to develop so-called bands in the neck which can run either horizontally or vertically. There are certain surgical procedures that can address these bands.
There are also newer methods that are less invasive, and which carry less risk. A recent study focused on the use of dermal fillers, to effectively reduce the appearance of these bands.
Fillers have been used to soften facial lines for many years, so researchers wanted to see if they would be a similarly effective treatment for horizontal neck lines. 14 eligible subjects were chosen for the trial. Some of them received hyaluronic acid filler injections into their neck lines. As with most injections, there was some bruising and swelling, though these side effects resolved relatively quickly. Compared to subjects who did not receive the treatment, those who were treated with hyaluronic acid filler had visibly reduced neck lines.
We are hopeful that this treatment will be as effective for the neck lines as they are for the facial ones. Trials are underway to determine the most effective way of performing these treatments, such as the type of needle to be used, injection sites, and frequency of injections.
