All About Lip Fillers

Posted on November 17, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

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.

Your Laser Skin Care in Los Angeles specializes in Botox and Fillers injections, laser hair removal and IPL among many other services. Please call us at (323) 525-1516 or visit us online at www.yourlaserskincare.com to schedule a free consultation.

 

New Research Shows Fillers May Be Able to Treat Neck Folds

Posted on October 24, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

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.

Hand Makeovers Are on the Rise!

Say Goodbye to Sunspots

They say you can tell someone’s age by looking at their hands. We often forget to protect our hands from the sun in the same way as our face, which can lead to sunspots and a leathery, aged appearance.

In the same way they are used to treat sun damage on your face, IPL and chemical peels can both be used to rejuvenate your hands. We can help you determine which treatment is right for you based on your complexion and degree of sun damage.

Fill Out Thin, Wrinkled Hands

As you get older, your hands will likely lose volume and plumpness, leaving behind thin, crepey skin. Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can create more youthful looking hands by replacing lost collagen and smoothing out wrinkles. Fillers are quick and pain free, and last around six months when injected into the hands – not quite as long as facial fillers since the hands are used frequently, causing the fillers to be metabolized more quickly.

Your Way to Luscious Lips

Posted on February 14, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Wish you had the plump and beautiful lips most women find so desirable? With today’s lip fillers, you can have that look today.

It’s no secret that both men and women love the look of full, well-proportioned lips. They suggest youth, vibrance and sensuality. Adding a little volume to your lips can make you look and feel your most desirable.

Getting lip fillers at our Los Angeles cosmetic clinic is fast and easy. Lips are one of the most sensitive parts of our bodies, so we start with a gentle numbing product. This will take a few minutes to set in so that the procedure can be done quickly and comfortably.
Next, we outline the area to be enhanced. This shows where we want to add plumping to give your looks a well-proportioned, fuller look.

Then, the filler product is I injected into the lips. We use hyaluronic acid fillers that are formulated for a quick and comfortable procedure. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already occurs in your body, you can be confident that you will get the results you want without a risk of allergic reaction.

The results are instant, allowing you to walk out with fuller and rounder lips than you had when you arrived.

There is sometimes slight swelling and bruising, which will disappear a few days after your procedure. A little ice applied as soon as possible after your procedure can help with swelling and tenderness, allowing you to heal quickly and enjoy your new look.
At your Laser Skin Care, we are passionate about helping Los Angeles women get the look they want. Call us at (323) 525-1516 or visit us at www.yourlaserskincare.com to schedule a complimentary consultation today.

 

Giving Thanks – to Botox!

Posted on November 21, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

Botox is a great way to make sure that you look your very best for all of your upcoming Thanksgiving festivities.

One of the things that we love about Botox is its versatility. Botox can be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead, between the brows, and at the corners of the eyes. But it’s also a great way to lift the brow without surgery, reduce excess sweating, or just look a little younger and fresher at Thanksgiving dinner. We also love how long-lasting Botox is. Most of our patients see results for about 4 months after a Botox treatment. That means that one injection will keep you looking refreshed throughout the holiday season and into the new year. (more…)
