Cosmetic Procedures & Treatments Fort Myers
Are you looking for cosmetic procedures & treatments in Fort Myers? It may surprise you to learn that Elmquist Eye Group offers these cosmetic procedures. Let’s learn more.
Full face treatment
Many of our patients opt for a full face treatment, which involves cheek augmentation and softening of the nasolabial folds. These folds are more commonly known as marionette lines; they run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth and form with age and after repeated movements like smiling and laughing. We also will lift the corners of the lips as well during this treatment. Combined, these treatments will give you a younger and more energetic appearance.
Surgery is not involved. Instead, we use dermal fillers. The FDA has approved dermal fillers, also known as wrinkle fillers or soft tissue fillers, for cosmetic purposes. These fillers create a fuller appearance in the face. As we age, the skin begins to sag and lose its fullness and plumpness. The FDA has approved dermal fillers for use in several areas of the face, including cheeks, chin and lips.
JUVÉDERM® is the world’s most utilized dermal filler, and the Elmquist team uses two JUVÉDERM® products for full face treatment. Typically, we use one syringe of JUVÉDERM® Voluma and two syringes of JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus for this full face treatment. The Voluma product is an injectable gel used to add volume to the cheek and chin areas, while the Ultra product is used in the lip area for lip augmentation. Both products are approved for adults over age 21.
Results typically last for one year. Both the amount of product used as well as the duration of results depends on the underlying tissue structure and location of injection. Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the human body. Therefore, the fillers are absorbed by the body over time, and treatment needs to be repeated.
Choosing a doctor
When seeking cosmetic treatment, it is extremely important to have the right doctor. Be sure to ask about the doctor’s experience and frequency of treating patients with dermal fillers.
