This woman was concerned about what she considered a drawn appearance to her face, rather than concern about effects of aging. She wanted to add volume with injections of facial fillers.Dr. Lepore recommended Voluma in this case, an FDA-approved treatment for adding volume to the cheek.
In addition to the volume she gained, she also has a more defined and balanced facial structure, following the injections of Voluma. She is very pleased with her results.
Voluma is a long-lasting hyaluronic acid filler, whose effects may remain visible for up to 2 years.
This is one of the many patients seeking injectable fillers in our San Jose Plastic Surgery office. This patient chose Radiesse, hoping for some rejuvenation without undergoing surgery. With a number of injections to the cheeks, nasolabial folds, oral commisures (corners of mouth), marionette lines, and pre-jowl sulcus, this patient saw dramatic changes, almost immediately. The filler had the effect of lifting the cheeks, as well as filling and smoothing other areas of the face. This patient was extremely pleased with the outcome of her Radiesse treatment, and states that she finds herself smiling more!
This young woman (mid 20s) wanted to add more volume, and definition to her lips. She chose to have injections of a filler, in this case Juvederm Ultra XC.
1 cc (one syringe) of Juvederm was used to inject her upper and lower lips, with extra attention to the 'cupid's bow' area of the upper lip. Our patient is shown immediately following the injection procedure. Some of the fullness will subside, as normal post-injection swelling resolves. The effects of Juvederm normally last from 9 months to a year.
Our patient is very pleased with her results.
Volbella-Lip Enhancement San Jose
This is a woman in her early 30s, who wished to have her lips enhanced with injectable fillers. Although her lips are well-shaped, she wished to add fullness. She chose to have injections of Volbella, part of the Juvederm family of fillers, from Allergan. Volbella is FDA-approved, and provides a subtle volume to the lips. It is also used for softening fine lines that appear around the mouth.
The new formula used in Volbella, provides a longer-lasting result- with effects lasting up to a year.
In this case, our patient had one syringe of Volbella added to her upper and lower lip. The results are seen immediately, (any swelling is likely to resolve within several days). She is very pleased with her results.
This woman wanted a subtle facial transformation, without surgery. She wished to have more definition in her nose, as well as her cheeks.
In what many refer to as a Liquid Rhinoplasty, Dr. Lepore gave her the changes she wanted, with injectable fillers. In this case, he injected the long-lasting filler, Voluma, into her nasal bridge, tip, dorsum, and columella. The results are immediate, as seen in the series of photos. Our patient was very pleased, and also elected to have Voluma injected into her upper cheeks, for a little 'lift' and definition.
Results with Voluma, may last up to 2 years.
