An effective anti-aging plan offers tangible value. We’ll simplify it for you.
Visible wear and tear, a fatigued appearance, and correctable imperfections negatively impact you and entities you represent. Invest in your presentation with personalized upgrades in our San Diego office and Aesthetic Center. Superior medical grade skin care is a good beginning. After consultation, we may recommend applications to smooth and remove creases, adjust facial shape, light energy treatments to brighten skin, soften wrinkles, and correct irregularities, skin tightening, liposculpture, or another prescription. These are quick, comfortable, affordable office treatments involving little or no recovery time. Recommendations depend on your special situation.
Dr. Laverson is skilled at maintaining youthful features with regular supportive care. These measures are NOT TRANSFORMATION like surgery, but are instead PRESERVATION: preventive care to avoid progressive decline. Injections offer instant results, without recovery time. Chemical Peels or laser treatments, depending on their strength, may require several days of healing. Products we use include Dysport®, Botox®, Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvederm®, Belotero Balance®, Radiesse®, Sculptra® and your own (autologous) tissue for fat, dermis, or fascia grafting. The injection procedure is EASY FOR YOU !
In many situations, your own tissue may be preferable to commercially available fillers. Fat, connective tissue, and cartilage from another location on your body can be transferred as a graft or flap to augment a deficiency or fill a hollow or defect. This is plastic surgery, and the most classic technique for contour restoration. Advantages of your own tissue may be longevity, quality of the result, texture, and/or expected appearance. Selection of the best method of solving an aesthetic problem is discussed in advance during consultation with Dr. Steve Laverson. Dr. Laverson offers fat grafting using specialized procedures that purify the stem cell fraction to maximize the quality of your result.
Restylane Lyft® and Juvederm Voluma XC® are the most structural Hyaluronan Gels available for facial restoration in the United States. They are formulated and FDA-approved for enhancing aging cheeks by filling and lifting hollow and/or sagging soft tissue. They complement rather than replace surgical approaches. Patients treated with RESTYLANE LYFT® or with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™XC noticed immediately visible correction of age-related volume loss in the lower eyelid and cheek area (as pictured above and HERE) and a younger less fatigued appearance.
Voluma™XC is a Juvederm formulation that incorporates the Allergan proprietary VYCROSS™ molecular cross-linking technology. By increasing density and resistance to resorption of Voluma™ while still preserving flow characteristics, VYCROSS™ helps the product lift loose soft tissue and prolongs the duration of effect of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC. The XC designation indicates that a low dose of lidocaine is in the gel, which helps control pain at the site of injection. Still, Dr. Laverson offers pre-treatment anesthetic for injections in most facial areas.
An advantage of Restylane Lyft® and Voluma™ XC over alternative long lasting fillers is reversibility with hyaluronidase enzyme. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring, hydrating and volumizing carbohydrate found beneath your skin surface. Depending on the amount of product Dr. Laverson places beneath your cheeks, Voluma™ provides a subtle or more dramatic non-surgical lifting effect with restoration of youthful contours and profile. Surface skin creases and lines may be less visible because after cheek augmentation with Voluma™, they are more superficial and cast less shadow. A disadvantage of injectable fillers such as Restylane Lyft® and Voluma™XC is that they are temporary solutions.
