Many non-surgical treatments are available for rejuvenation. The most common non-surgical treatment we employ is the use of injectable products. Injection of neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin, and fillers such as Radiesse, Juvederm, or Restylane are common procedures in our Santa Barbara office.
These procedures can be done with minimal downtime and recovery. Fillers are now usually combined with an anesthetic and we also routinely use topical numbing gel to minimize discomfort. We also offer newer fillers Voluma and Sculptra. These fillers are generally for larger volume effects such as for hollow cheeks and may require three sessions to complete the improvement. Although temporary, the effect of these fillers can be quite long lasting.
These aesthetic injectable procedures are done by themselves or in combination, and sometimes part of an overall plan for facial rejuvenation that may include esthetician services or even surgery.
