Why Look Stressed When You Can Look Refreshed? Rejuvenate Your Face for a Youthful Look.
Do you feel years younger than you look? Behind the wrinkles, sagging skin and sunken eyes is the youthful you, waiting to be rediscovered. For most people, BOTOX and fillers can have an amazing impact on your appearance, allowing you to smooth and contour the shape of your face.
BOTOX and BOTOX-like treatments (such as Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau) and temporary fillers (such as Restylane, Radiesse, and Belotero) are the quickest and most economical way to restore a rejuvenated, youthful look without significant downtime. The results are natural-looking and subtle, but the improvement is noticeable.
BOTOX and fillers can reveal stunning natural-looking results to achieve a healthy, youthful look to the face. See our patient before and after photos from these procedures that improve the visible signs of aging.
Dr. Kwak has been referred to as “an artist” by his patients for his keen eye for aesthetic detail and producing dramatic, natural-looking, yet not “overdone” results that get noticed. He has performed hundreds of aesthetic and body contouring procedures every year for the last decade in Bryn Mawr and the Philadelphia region.
He is an internationally recognized expert in minimally invasive venous and cosmetic surgical techniques. He frequently guest lectures for both the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, where he is a member and the American College of Phlebology.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers
Hyaluronic acid fillers are a popular category of softer fillers and include brands such as Belotero, Restylane, Lyft and Voluma. These softer fillers can be used around the eyes, cheeks and mouth. They really show their strength by filling in areas of the face that start to develop deep shadows or hollows. They can be used around the eyes to alleviate dark circles or a tired look. HA fillers are also useful in plumping the lips for a natural and balanced look. They typically last 6-18 months.
Bioactive fillers, such as Radiesse, stimulate the skin to produce collagen. Radiesse has a thicker consistency and is made of natural calcium. Bioactive fillers (Radiesse) are injected deeper into the skin to recontour the cheeks and jowls by pushing them up. These fillers are more durable, lasting 12-18 months.
Fat Transfer Injectable Fillers
For a longer-lasting filler, your own fat is the most durable and there is no chance of an allergic reaction. Lumen Fill is a specialized technique using gentle liposuction to extract fat from a donor area. The fat is then distilled to its purest form. The fat can be injected into multiple areas of the face to restore lost volume in cheeks, push up jowls, plump up lips and lift the eyebrows.
We want you to feel comfortable and have the best experience possible. It’s why we take the time to educate you about what to expect before and after your procedure. Lumen Center patients are carefully monitored post-procedure and at regular checkpoints for up to a year.
How Do BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin & Jeuveau Work?
BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin & Jeuveau are muscle-relaxing agents. They block the release of chemicals that cause muscle contractions and weaken the muscles in treated areas. As a result, this wards off deep wrinkles and the skin retains a smooth, softened appearance.
When choosing between BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin & Jeuveau, we consider your individual goals and history to determine the best treatment for you. Jeuveau (the “new Botox”) is the newest injectable treatment specially formulated to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines, and it’s an effective solution for reducing frown lines.
