Botox and Fillers
Estea Laser & Cosmetic Center in Long Beach, California, believes that saying “laugh lines” is just a polite way to say wrinkles. That’s why we offer professional Botox treatment options. Developed to treat the signs of aging by reducing or removing wrinkles, Botox is considered a safe and effective method for treating such lines. Common areas for Botox treatments include forehead furrows, lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet.
Proven and Safe Procedure
Botox has proven to be one of the most popular and accepted non-surgical means of facial rejuvenation. Our skilled surgeons and nurses are able to produce results that range from subtle to dramatic and produce a younger, more relaxed appearance. Reasons to consider Botox include:
- Large Wrinkles or Furrows in Your Forehead
- Small Wrinkles or “Crow’s Feet” around Your Eyes
- Vertical “Frown Line” between Your Eyebrows
- Control of Axillary Sweating
How does it work
For the procedure, a small amount of Botox is injected into the area of the wrinkle. Botox blocks nerve impulses to the facial muscles, allowing them to relax—permitting the skin to smooth out. A single Botox treatment from our center will last up to four to six months.
Radiesse is a safe, next-generation cosmetic dermal filler that’s setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds and the lips. Under eyes lines can also be filled up.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a form of blood plasma, the liquid component of blood that carries red and white blood cells to their destinations. Platelets are tiny cell fragments in blood that contain growth factors—natural substances that encourage cellular growth and can help to heal wounds.
As we age, we lose collagen, a protein that holds skin tissue together, so our faces lose volume and sag. The Vampire (because your own blood is drawn to be used) FaceLift will dramatically counteract the effects, since the growth factors in the PRP accelerate the production of collagen. Vampire FaceLift can be used in conjunction with a whole host of other treatments for their growth factors such as fat transfer to face, Mini face-lift and Silhouette lift) and face-tightening procedures.
Fat Transfer to Face
This technique is the newest addition to our practice of improving the aging face appearance caused by loss of volume. For this, fat is usually obtained from the patient’s abdomen or flanks, providing additional benefit. We are proud to announce addition of our new harvesting system Body Jet.
