I believe that I inspire others through my genuine love for what I do. I always want to learn more, see more, do more. And i want to share what I learn with others. I believe that if you are enthusiastic about your profession, personal drive and success naturally follow. Enthusiasm s an infections condition that I think I am guilty of spreading.
Topical-anesthetic and ice ease pain, as can vibrating devices that trick the nervous system into sensing a more pleasant sensation of vibration rather than pain associated with the procedure. As for satisfaction, I must say that fillers are one of the most rewarding procedures I have ever had the pleasure of delivering because patient satisfaction is so high. As happens regularly, when I hand patients a mirror and show them their sculpted face, they get […]
Be wary of duration claims made by filler manufacturers. The data can be deceiving, with studies often done on patients receiving very large dosages of fillers or receiving interval fillers prior to the end of the study. And most manufacturers state that their fillers last “up to” a certain amount of time. In my experience, fillers rarely last as long as manufacturers state they can last. A simple rule of thumb that I tell my […]

However, I would say that individuals in the under 40 age group are most concerned with their lips and desire more volume. People in their 40s tend to be concerned with their nasolabial folds and marionette lines. People in their 50s complain of the prominent sulcus under their eyes and looking tired. People in their 60s complain of […]
Absolutely! When fillers first came out, they were made of animal-based collagen and required allergy testing. Then came hyaluronic acid and other non-animal-based fillers that required no allergy testing, so the procedure could be done the same day as the consult and, depending on the filler, results were usually immediate. At first, I tended to stick with using just the hyaluronic acid fillers because of their extreme safety profile. I always knew in the back […]
