Want your face to look younger in minutes?

Have you been noticing early signs of facial aging—deepening of the nasolabial folds from your nose to the corners of your mouth? Lines or creases between your eyebrows? Vertical “smoker's lines” around
your lips?

Now is the perfect time to erase years off your face instantly with hyaluronic acid skin fillers. It's good to avoid sun exposure for five days after a treatment, so why not come in before beach season?

These injectable products, including Restylane and Allergan's new Juvéderm, can also add fullness to thin lips and smooth out acne scars or pits.

And Juvéderm is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid skin filler that is proven to be safe and effective for people of color.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in the skin that holds collagen and elastin together—essentially providing a framework for the skin. Restylane and Juvéderm plump the facial skin, adding volume to minimize lines and wrinkles. You'll notice the results immediately.

And unlike collagen, hyaluronic acid is a natural skin component, so no pre-testing is required and allergic reactions are rare.

Before and after Patient of the month

‘I felt 10 years younger right away!’

Margaret, age 59, came to Dr. Parungao with signs of facial aging. He treated her with Juvéderm to smooth out the creases from her nose to the corners of her mouth and add natural-looking fullness to her lips.

Margaret saw the difference immediately—and so did her friends. “People really noticed!” she says.

Now Margaret maintains her new look by having hyaluronic acid injections about every six months. “Each time I get a treatment, the effects seem to last longer,” she says.

Americans want to look younger
without surgery

Hyaluronic acid fillers are extremely popular among busy women and men seeking less-invasive procedures to address the signs of aging. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that Americans received more than 1.2 million injectable hyaluronic acid treatments in 2005.

Because no pre-testing for allergies is needed, you can be treated with these dermal fillers on your very first office visit.

Hyaluronic Acid Facial Filler May Stimulate Natural Collagen Production

Restylane, a popular hyaluronic acid anti-wrinkle treatment, appears to stimulate facial skin cells to make their own collagen, a basic skin protein. This new clinical study finding was reported in the Feb. 20 issue of the Archives of Dermatology.

The clinical study showed that Resytlane's initial anti-wrinkle effect is caused merely by the presence of the filler in the skin. But three or four weeks after treatment, the skin actually begins forming its own new collagen.

Ask Dr. Parungao

How are hyaluronic acid skin fillers different from Botox® Cosmetic?

Restylane and Juvéderm are natural, cosmetic fillers that plump up the skin to smooth away facial wrinkles. By contrast, Botox Cosmetic is a drug that relaxes the muscles that underlie wrinkles.

I may recommend treatment with both products in different areas of the face to produce the results
you desire.
