Facts of Life vs. Feats of Aesthetic Medicine

You know the old adage - "it's written all over your face." And, what it says often speaks volumes, for how you feel on the inside is often expressed on the outside. It's not just the passing look on your face, but the look of your face, which many people will use to form opinions about your personality and to approximate your age. Getting older is a fact of life, but today, with injectable treatments like JUVÉDERM®, our Portland patients find that looking younger is a feat of science.

As you age, your face captures less light, and the brightness that once shone ear-to-ear, darkens due to the loss of volume under the skin. The skin remains the same size, but both the fat and the muscle supporting it slowly diminishes and before you know it, what was once plump and pleasing becomes sunken and hollow. It's a fact of life. But, with injectable treatments, facial volume can be regained, as can the smooth, bright and youthful look associated with it. Many people enjoy a non-surgical face lift in our Portland practice with these versatile treatments. We also use injectables to enhance facial features, like the lips and nose.

Serving the Pacific Northwest, the Key Laser Institute for Aesthetic Medicine® in Portland, Oregon is on the forefront on the West Coast in the use of non-invasive lasers, light and energy to reverse the signs of aging and to restore the health, appearance and overall well being of your skin.

The Three Primary Injectable Treatments for Proven Facial Rejuvenation

Injectable treatments are a new generation of quick, natural, non-allergenic dermal fillers approved by the FDA for restoring volume and correcting skin imperfections associated with aging for a non-surgical facelift in Portland, Oregon. They are also well suited for enhancing the cheeks, lips, and chin.

Utilizing a fine needle to inject either a cosmetic filler under the skin, injectable treatments quickly build up the underlying facial tissue that for years has slowly broken down. Today, 3 main fillers - each compatible with your body and biodegradable - treat wrinkles, creases, furrows, folds, scars, and depressions, as well as add fullness to lips and cheeks - all while improving the texture of the skin.

  • Restylane®: Free of animal proteins, the injectable treatment Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, which exists naturally in the body. It has been administered in over 3 million procedures in over 70 countries since 1996, tapping into the body's moisture to provide lasting results.
  • JUVÉDERM®: An injectable treatment made of hyaluronic acid, a non-animal complex sugar found naturally in the body but one which diminishes over time, JUVÉDERM is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. It attracts and binds with water for long lasting benefits.
  • Sculptra®: Composed of poly-L-lactic acid, over 150,000 patients have elected for this safe and synthetic filler to provide a gradual and noticeable increase in skin thickness. Though results aren't immediate, with this injectable treatment, they are long lasting - up to 2 years.

Injectable treatments routinely provide amazing results that can be achieved during your lunch break. Like fat injection, they can be performed as a standalone procedure or easily combined with many of our other treatments including BOTOX® in Portland, Oregon.
