With today’s advanced scientific breakthroughs in the world of cosmetic enhancement and the steady hand of a great surgeon amazing results can now be achieved minus the anxiety and hassle of being put under for surgery. These results not only look great but can last as well. Blepharoplasty is the name of the procedure for removing excess fat and skin from the upper and lower eyelids. Such excess fat (under eye bags) and skin can create a tired, puffy and over all older appearance. Non-surgical blepharoplasty is the term for contouring and adding to the areas of asymmetry and shadowing caused by the excess fat (puffy eyes) and skin to achieve a youthful and vibrant appearance without going under the knife.
What gives our face a youthful appearance is fullness. What creates fullness in the face is a combination of fat and collagen. We mimic the appearance of collagen by building volume using HA filler. ‘HA’ stands for hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is the molecule that attaches to collagen. It is found in your own body and fills lines and crevices by attracting the production of natural collagen in your skin cells.
Dr. Mashhadian has an expert eye for contouring using these fillers and your procedure is done right in our office using topical anesthetic. You leave your appointment with amazing instant results for months and even a year (+) to enjoy!
What is a Cannula?
Rather than using a sharp needle which pierces and damages blood vessels and skin tissue when inserted, a tiny hole is inserted in the tissue, and instead of ripping and tearing tissue fibers under the skin, the cannula glides through pushing blood vessels and capillaries out of the way while the material is being injected under the skin. This makes for a much more comfortable and much better looking result, faster!
Additional Non-Surgical Options
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is another great alternative to going “under the knife” and is also done using filler material. Because the nose is a much less-sensitive area of tissue than say, under the eye, thicker and more durable filler is used to correct asymmetry as well as reduce and eliminate bumps in the bridge of the nose. This in-office procedure takes minutes and the patient can leave with an amazing result, similar to that of a surgical rhinoplasty instantly.
Non-surgical cheek enhancement is an incredible way to regain youthful fullness and symmetry to the cheeks and over all look of the face. When we are young our skin’s curves are smooth and flawless. The tissue is taut and round and generally free of crevices and unflattering dips. Dr. Mashhadian uses a very thick filler material such as Radiesse to plump up cheeks, which then pulls and tightens the other surrounding areas of loose skin giving an all around more refreshed and symmetrical appearance. The filler material can also be used to build up cheekbone areas that are flat and are lacking depth. This is a great, non-surgical way to see amazing improvement quickly and easily right here in our office!
