The Non-Surgical Nose Enhancement:
We place small amounts of collagen under the skin to shape the nose. And there is no down time! We restore a more symmetric look to your nose just by filling in the defects of your nose to make the irregularities of the nose less obvious. All you need is a numbing cream pre-injection. Then you can get back to your life immediately. Even though we are adding collagen to the nose, surprisingly the nose does not look bigger. By taking away those bumps and creating a more symmetrical nose, the nose actually looks smaller and more proportional.
If you have always desired to have a smoother profile but have been fearful of surgery, consider our fabulous procedure. If you have a fear of commitment, worry not, the collagen typically lasts for 3-6 months so if you do not like your new nose, you will get back to the old one before you know it. If you prefer longer acting collagens, we can offer you permanent collagen injections as well.
Non-surgical chin enhancement:
This technique will correct a weak chin or receding chin and balance your profile without the pain, risk, and recovery time of surgical chin implants.
Traditional chin augmentation involves the surgical implantation of a shaped silicone, solid chin implant under general anesthesia. The surgery involves up to two weeks of swelling and pain. The results can be good, but can also be limited by the shape of the prefabricated implant. There is permanent hardness that you and other people will feel. Dr. Alex Kim uses Radiesse or Juvederm injectable filler, rather than performing surgery for chin augmentation. A topical numbing cream is applied to prevent pain during the procedure. Small amounts of Radiesse are then injected into precise areas building up the chin and bringing your profile into balance. Results of non-surgical procedure are more precise because Dr. Alex Kim expands only the areas that are absolutely necessary for the optimal cosmetic result.
The procedure is normally performed in two 15-minute sessions, which take place about three weeks apart. You may experience two to three days of minor swelling and tenderness. The results will last about two years. This allows for adjustment in the future as your face changes, so that you will always retain a natural look.
Non-surgical Eyelid Enhancement:
The eyes are the most expressive part of the face, and the first feature that people will notice. Young-looking eyelids are beautiful, expressive, and a sign of good health. Sagging eyelids can be corrected with an eyelid lift, or eyelid enhancement. If you have Deep sagging eyes, with dark shadows, collagen injections may make you more youthful and less “tired.”
