Facial contouring, also known as facial sculpting, is an elective cosmetic surgical procedure that improves the general appearance of the face. It is an emerging trend in some countries and its goals are to improve the proportion of the face and all facial features, as well as make the face generally smaller. It can make a person’s facial features look more balanced as well as improve facial outline.
Fillers and Botox can do some seriously amazing things for your appearance. Dermal fillers are used as non-invasive ways for patients to soften and even get rid of unwanted wrinkles, face creases and age lines. In addition to BOTOX, other injectables used include Juvederm, Radiesse and Restylane that will help contour the face shape to the patient’s preference. As a person ages, their skin gets thinner and more elastic, and with the aid of these fillers, the sagging skin will be plumped up, making the face and other body parts look fuller and more youthful.
Radiesse is a natural substance, calcium hydroxylapatite, completely biocompatible material, and FDA approved with a safety track record of over 20 years. Radiesse injection is easy and comfortable for the patient, with the usual risks of swelling and bruising, as with any dermal filler. What is unique about Radiesse is that in addition to being a dermal filler that delivers immediate results, it is also a collagen stimulator, unlike most other fillers other than Bellafill which are not, thereby improving the treated areas with longer-term results with the production of the patient's own natural collagen, though to not the same extent as Bellafill or Sculptra. Radiesse is a great choice if you would like long lasting results, of one year on average duration, without going with a filler that is permanent.

Kybella® is the first FDA approved non-surgical injection for improving the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, commonly referred to as a double chin. Kybella® is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Ultherapy is a state of the art medical procedure utilizing focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten sagging skin. No scalpel or anesthesia is needed. Ultherapy is great for people who would like tightening and lifting of facial skin without having a surgical facelift. The Ulthera sound energy passes right through the skin and targets the areas you want lifted. During a typical 30-60 minute Ultherapy treatment session, an ultrasound applicator is passed over each region of the face. The sound waves emitted deliver small, controlled amounts of energy into the deep layers of skin and soft tissue. The beauty of Ultherapy ‘uplifting ultrasound’ is that it is a face and neck treatment that improves skin laxity in a meaningful way but completely non–surgically. See procedure in the Video Gallery
