Injectable Fillers Before & Afters Case #12302
Like many people who come to Marina Plastic Surgery Associates for non-surgical rejuvenation, this 47-year-old woman was frustrated that she was "always looking tired." With distinct dark circles under her eyes, she was unhappy that no matter what she did to try and conceal them, they were always haunting her eyes. Wanting to find a more permanent solution that actually worked, she decided to find a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon who could help her wake up her eyes.
When she came to Marina Plastic Surgery Associates to meet with her surgeon, she explained to him her concerns and asked what options she had that didn't involve surgery. After examining the skin around her eyes, her surgeon explained that the dark circles were caused by the lack of volume in her under-eye skin. By injecting Restylane®, a popular injectable filler, he could add volume to the lower part of her eyes, thereby eliminating the dark circles. The filler works by using a naturally-occurring chemical in the human body, hyaluronic acid, which adds volume to the skin by reacting with the water in your skin. The process augments the body's natural volume enhancers to give you the results you wanted.
Her "after" photos were taken 3 months after her Los Angeles Restylane treatment to show the noticeable change in her appearance. Her eyes look alert now that the dark circles have been diminished, and she no longer looks constantly tired. She was thrilled with the results of her treatment and was very happy she no longer had to worry about looking overly-tired.
