Inland Empire's leading eyelid surgery center
It’s an inevitable fact of life that as you age, your face will change in ways you seldom prefer. Age brings experience and wisdom, but it can leave us looking tired or fatigued. Even though we feel as lively and full as ever on the inside. Thankfully, when you visit qualified oculofacial surgeons like the ones at In Focus, you can count on a variety of cosmetic procedures to keep you looking great. One quick and effective treatment that has become overwhelmingly popular is to receive injectable fillers.
WHAT ARE INJECTABLE FILLERS?
Also called dermal fillers, this treatment uses formulations of hyaluronic acid gel to address wrinkles or loose skin. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is already naturally present in your body, but we begin to lose it as we age. The purpose of our fillers is to replace what you’ve lost with refined, safe formulas:
The filler you choose can depend on which area or signs of aging you would like to address. Our options include:
Juvederm Voluma— A popular product for restoring the volume of your midface and cheeks. This formula can provide you with a midface lift that can last for two years.
Juvederm Vollure— A new generation filler from Allergan that provides natural volume and movement.
Juvederm Volbella— Another new filler that is soft and natural. It works wonderfully for the lips and around for tear trough circles around the eyes.
Juvederm XC— This gel expands as it hydrates after it’s injected. This is primarily used for lips and mouth contours.
Restylane— This hyaluronic gel is used for eye hollows.
Restylane Defyne— A variation of Restylane, it is used for natural volume with some lift. It works very well for nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and for full, but natural looking lips.
Restylane Refyne– Similar to Defyne, but softer for a less full but naturally smooth look.
Belotero— A very soft filler, it is primarily applied to fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes.
Injectable fillers treat wrinkles without the need for surgery. You can achieve a rejuvenated experience in only a couple minutes, and your results can last for months at a time without the need for downtime or recovery.
HOW DO I KNOW DERMAL FILLERS ARE RIGHT FOR ME?
If you believe your eyes look more tired than you would prefer, this may be the procedure for you. Eyelid blepharoplasty, brow lifts, and more are a great way to help update your look, but they may not be necessary if all you need is some filler. Visit In Focus, and we will evaluate your situation to determine which procedure is in your best interest.
WHAT KIND OF FILLERS CAN I GET FOR MY EYELIDS?
At In Focus, we specialize in oculofacial treatments. Our job is to make sure you have the cosmetic and medical tools to ensure your eyes look and work their best. Our injectable fillers contour your eyelids to make sure they always look vibrant and beautiful.
Not everyone sees puffiness and heaviness in their eyelids as they age. Sometimes your eyelids may hollow out as you age or as a result of a blepharoplasty where too much skin and fat was removed. If this is what you are suffering from, a filler may be precisely what you need.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT ENTAIL?
The process is:
- Done in-office
- No downtime
It involves a small filler injected delicately into the target area. The amount and type of filler will depend on your aesthetic goals. During your consultation, you will have a chance to learn about the types of fillers and which will be best for you.
There is also a needle-less filler process. Using the newest technology, we can perform your filler injections without the need for a needle. The process involves the use of a thin tube called a micro-cannula to inject the filler, allowing for a smoother dose without bruising and similar complications.
HOW DO I KNOW IN FOCUS IS THE RIGHT CHOICE?
Most of the changes associated with aging are related to volume loss around the eyes, which means an oculofacial plastic surgeon is the perfect choice to oversee your treatment. The anatomy of your eyelids and surrounding area is complicated, which is why it’s best to stick with a surgeon who carries expertise in this area. The advantages our surgeons bring to the table include:
- Experience–We have plenty of experience applying dermal fillers to areas around the eyes and eyelids, so you can rest assured we know what we’re doing.
- Ability–Our trained microsurgeons know how to inject the most precise amount of filler into your eyelids to ensure proper results, as well as your comfort.
- Knowledge–Why go with just any cosmetic surgeon, when you can go with the eyelid experts? We have specific expertise on the complicated, sensitive tissues surrounding your eye. We will even let you know if a different procedure would best handle the particular results you are looking for.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE RECOVERY PROCESS?
Filler injections are relatively simple procedures performed in-office, with little to no downtime. Since there are no incisions, you do not need to worry about scarring or long recovery periods. Instead, you receive immediate results that last for months on end in no time at all.
The cannula procedure in particular is so simple; patients can usually return to normal activities right after the process is finished. Sometimes there will be some bruising, but it can be covered up with makeup after the treatment.
