Injectable Fillers New Orleans Metairie

Filler for eye bags and cheek augmentation

Cheek and tear trough fillers have become one of our most popular procedures.  Although cheek implants are a permanent option, many patients want a non-surgical treatment for lack of volume in the cheeks.  Cheek enhancement is one of the best cosmetic procedures for creating a rejuvenated look.  A small amount of filler in the cheeks can make a huge difference in making female and male patients look younger.  This is a near painless, simple, ten-minute procedure that has major results with virtually no down time.  Contact our office now for a comprehensive consultation for facial filler injection.

Lip Filler New Orleans

The filler is injected in the lips, wrinkles or folds. The actual injection only takes minutes. Ice is placed on the lips immediately after the injections. The lips generally swell somewhat, but most patients can return to work the next day. Rarely, some patients experience more significant swelling. For this reason, a first-time filler patient may want to be treated on a day when they don’t have important engagements coming up. It is also a good idea to refrain from aspirin and other medications to decrease bruising from filler injections.

Fillers for the Jawline and Jowls

Injectable fillers can be very versatile for filling aging defects on the face and neck.  Many patients have jowls and need a facelift, but may not be able to undergo a procedure for various reasons. Many of these patients can benefit from filling the hollow regions around the jowl (pre-jowl sulcus), which improves the appearance of the jowls at the border of the jaw.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (HA)

Currently, HA fillers are the most popular injectable fillers in New Orleans and Metairie used by Dr. Sean Weiss for non-surgical enhancements. HA is a naturally occurring material in animals and can be produced by some bacteria as well. Generally, HA products offer 9-18 months of effect and the possibility of longer effects with repeat injections. Some Examples of HA fillers are Restylane™, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne. Juvederm™, Juvederm Voluma®, Juvederm Vobella, and Juvederm Vollure.

Other Products

Multiple other materials have been developed with variability regarding duration of effect, risk of complication and overall natural-appearing results. Poly-L-Lactic Acid products (Sculptra™) offer longer-lasting results (up to 2 years) but are not potentially reversible during that time. Hydroxyapatite Products (Radiesse™) are also popular and produce results more than 12-18 months.

Fat Transfer

The transfer of fat from one part of the body to the face for augmentation and filling of wrinkles is used by many experienced physicians and offers the benefit of long-lasting, natural augmentation. Fat grafting by Dr. Weiss allows for larger amounts of material for injection (compared to other fillers), make this a powerful technique to correct the loss of volume commonly associated with the “aging face” appearance.
