Botox and Fillers in Santa Monica

Botox

Botox is widely used in the United States as a non-surgical facial injection to help ease fine wrinkles and deep lines on the face. The most common applications for Botox include eyelid wrinkles, eyebrow wrinkles, deep forehead lines, and nose wrinkles. As the leading FDA-Approved injection for facial rejuvenation, Botox can help you look years younger in a matter of minutes. 

Young patients are timid about starting Botox as it is an introductory step in the process of aging. At Kare Plastic Surgery + Skin Health in Santa Monica, we believe that small amounts of Botox are key as they can mitigate existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from coming up. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian administers micro-injections of Botox using a very fine needle so that patient discomfort is minimized.

Juvederm is a safe, FDA-approved hyaluronic acid facial fillers that provides longlasting volume to the lips and face. The safety of Juvederm has contributed to its worldwide success as one of the most sought-after facial fillers. Juvederm is used primarily for soft tissue augmentation in the cheeks and face.

Radiesse

Radiesse is a leading volumizing facial filler that is used to fill in deep wrinkles and enhance soft tissue volume on the face. Results are seen immediately with Radiesse and continue to improve over 30 to 60 days as Radiesse stimulates additional production of collagen within the skin.
 
Ideally, Radiesse should be used in someone with mild to moderate wrinkling and facial volume loss. Radiesse can be used on the face, including the cheeks, nasolabial folds, temples, jawline, and deep wrinkles. Results typically last two to three years, with patients reporting long-term results that outlast volume fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane.
 
Our expert clinicians can help you decide whether Radiesse is the right facial filler for you. Radiesse is commonly used in patients who desire a more natural volume enhancement along the jawline and in the upper cheeks. 

Restylane

Restylane is among the most common hyaluronic acid facial fillers on the market; owing much of its popularity to its versatility and high safety profile. Among the many applications for this filler, Restylane is most commonly used as a volumizing filler to enhance the lower eyelid hollows, the nasolabial folds, fine wrinkles, and lip lines. Restylane is among the safest fillers used in lip augmentation. 
  • Fill in Laugh Lines
  • Increase Cheek Volume
  • Smooth Deep Folds in the Skin
  • Reduce Fine Lines

Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an expert in Restylane injections and can help you identify specfic facial points to volumize during your visit. His clear approach to non-surgical facial enhancement can employ fillers, Botox injections, lasers, and RF tissue tightening in combination to enhance your results.

In many cases, Restylane can be used with Botox to eradicate static and dynamic wrinkles. Results can be seen immediately with Restylane and continue upwards of one year. 

Lip augmentation with Restylane is an excellent choice if you have lost crucial upper and lower lip volume. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian uses a technique known as the 'French Method' to enhance the vertical fullness of the lips.
