At Eastside Eye Candy, we specialize in facial rejuvenation using a combination of BOTOX® and filler to reverse and prevent the signs of aging and restore a more youthful appearance to your face, neck, and hands.
Botox is best when used to help prevent the dynamic wrinkles of the face from becoming more prominent etched lines with time. It softens the movement of certain muscles, which prevent the skin from folding and creating wrinkles. One of the best ways to incorporate Botox in your facial rejuvenation plan is to help gently raise the brows which open up the eyes making you look and feel less tired. Jaime Pedeferri, owner and injector, takes a conservative approach with injections knowing that more Botox can always be added later if needed. Because of this philosophy, she is able to help her client’s stay safe and offer a more natural result.
Filler without needles Jaime’s goal is to minimize downtime, bruising and swelling caused by using needles to inject filler. She has found that using a cannula allows a gentle delivery decreasing the risk of bruising. The increased safety, patient comfort, and accuracy of using the cannula technique has made this her standard method of delivering filler.
Filler is an excellent complement to BOTOX® injections and adds volume back to the face in areas that show aging. As we age, not only do our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat, but the bone structure itself changes. We lose volume and gravity takes hold. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. Dermal filler helps to diminish facial lines and restores volume and fullness as well as provide structure to combat sagginess.
The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Filler can sculpt rather than fill lines. With Jaime’s technique, she can lift facial skin by focusing on the cause of the volume loss and replacing structure giving a more natural, youthful look.
Filler can also be used for a variety of other purposes including plumping thin lips. enhancing shallow contours, softening facial creases and wrinkles and improving the appearance of recessed scars. They can also be used to disguise vessels or tendons in the backs of our hands, leading to a softer more youthful appearance.
Dermal filler differs in chemical makeup, longevity and varying degrees of softness. Based on Jaime’s experience and ongoing research in new and updated filler, she recommends the best type of filler for your particular needs.
