 LET’S  REJUVENATE !  Spring 2014 


                  Before                               After Hyaluronic Acid Filler

                                                            Cheeks/Dysport® jawline

    Most of you who have known me for almost 15 years have heard or read about my discussion of filler injections to lift the upper (and therefore lower) cheeks because of the “tenting” effect of adding volume.  In the past, Sculptra® was the filler of choice for the cheeks, because of its greater volumizing and longevity over the hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Restylane®/Perlane®/Juvederm®.
     This year, Allergan®, the manufacturer of Botox Cosmetic®, launched a more viscous HA filler named Juvederm Voluma® and started a high-profile mass-marketing campaign to advocate it for lifting/filling the cheeks and, therefore, volumizing and re-draping a sagging face without surgery.  Probably not coincidentally, younger people (who do not need to lift a sagging cheek) have become increasingly interested in having a more prominent “cheek contour,” as many style icons such as Kim Kardashian are embracing.
     So, as I have been advocating filler to lift a sagging cheek for years, I now also advocate filler to temporarily enhance, or sculpt a younger face.  Just as many runway and print models a decade ago created a fashion of full, pouty lips, now the “look” is a full, heart-shaped face and sculpted, tight jawline.
     As our photos show, this type of facial shaping and facial feature enhancement is easily done with fillers, Juvederm Voluma® or Expression® injections in the cheeks and Dysport® injections in the jawline to create an effect that can last up to 1 year!

      Finally, a stable Vitamin C combined with Retinol, in one product with good stability and efficacy studies behind it!  Biopelle KNR® serum is the perfect go to anti-aging skin care product for oily skin types who get clogged/more oily from most good anti-aging creams.  Normal skin types can use an effective anti-aging growth factor cream (we recommend Neocutis Biocream® or Journee®) to lighten makeup texture in the morning, and this lightweight serum for a “bare skin” feeling at night.  Perhaps best of all – we find KNR® serum to be one of the least irritating Retinol products for sensitive skin types that cannot tolerate RetinA® or drugstore Retinol creams, but still need Retinol’s wonderful effects in skin-smoothing and fine-line erasing…
