Did you know that facial volume loss can start as early as our late twenties?

Posted February 11th, 2019 by Holly Shipley, PA-C

The mid-face is the area where most people will begin to notice volume loss. When we lose volume in the cheeks, we start to see other facial changes happening as a result of this. The skin will sag more along the jawline (the dreaded jowls), we develop nasolabial folds & marionette lines, and our under eyes may appear more sunken in.

Aging Lines Vs. Sleeping Lines

Blog post December 14th, 2018 by Holly Shipley, PA-C

Wrinkles from aging are typically horizontal lines that are caused by repetitive muscle movements, such as raising your brows. Aging lines can be treated with #Botox or #Dysport to relax the muscle, which will prevent the wrinkles from deepening and setting in.


Will my lips be too big after injection?

Blog post November 13th, 2018 by Dr. Ryan Greene

Lip filler is not always about getting bigger lips. Often times, a patient's goal is to improve lip definition and shape without drastically changing the size of their lips. This creates a beautiful lip enhancement while maintaining a very natural look.


Lip Correction Case Study?

This patient came to me after being injected by a local practitioner in Miami. She was unhappy with the results as her lips were left with many lips and an unnatural shape. Her upper lips was also over injected, which creates poor balance between the lips. I performed two sessions of an enzyme treatment to dissolve the improperly placed product and then reinjected filler to improve the shape and balance of her lips.

 


When Should I Get BOTOX?

Blog Post October 3rd, 2018 - by Holly Shipley, PA-C

I get asked this question on a daily basis. In my opinion, there is no “rule” when it comes to the right age to start Botox because it varies per person. What I usually recommend is to start treatment when you develop static lines (wrinkles at rest) after making movements such as squinting or raising your brows.


Patients often ask me - Do you use a blunt cannula for the tear trough?

Blog Post October 8th, 2018 - by Dr. Ryan Greene

I answer that I have always used a needle instead, for multiple reasons. In my opinion, the needle technique is more precise, as I am always in the correct plane, and I know exactly where I’m placing the filler. With a cannula, the filler is often placed in an incorrect plane (too superficial and not deep enough). In my practice, I often see patients treated elsewhere who had filler placed incorrectly using a cannula; this can create puffy, lumpy filler below the tear trough.


Why Choose an Experienced Injector for Facial Fillers?

Blog Post October 11th, 2018 - by Dr. Ryan Greene

Most injectors rush their injections, and don’t utilize a safe technique that avoids intravascular injection. Just remember: These are medical treatments, and there are real risks that can be avoided by an injector with an intimate knowledge of facial anatomy and careful technique.
