Sun exposure, genetic factors and aging can all cause your skin to thin, losing its firm elastic quality. At the Rose Clinic for Plastic and Migraine Surgery, with the help of board certified plastic surgeon Kevin G. Rose, MD, we make it possible to achieve a more youthful appearance by offering a variety of FDA- approved cosmetic fillers and injectables.
Injectable dermal fillers have added a new dimension to the field of cosmetic surgery, allowing new ways to achieve facial rejuvenation and treat wrinkles, lines, and creases without surgery. Below are listed the products that Dr. Rose offers:
Dr. Rose is one of the first and only physicians in Utah county to offer this amazing treatment. The first injectable product that the FDA has approved to treat submental fat, Kybella is designed to dissolve stubborn under-the-chin fat. Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance found in our bodies naturally. When injected, it destroys fat cells under the chin, leaving the skin substantially tighter and the jawline more defined and contoured. You can see long-lasting results with Kybella. The treatment may involve several treatments, depending upon the amount of unwanted fat.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra and Ultra Plus
This is a smooth-consistency gel that is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in your skin and provides volume and hydration. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus is widely used to smooth nasolabial folds (the area between the upper lip and cheek), add volume to facial areas, reduce the appearance of lip lines, and to plump and define the lips. Results from JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus can be seen immediately after treatment, and can last up to a year.
BOTOX® temporarily diminishes the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, and it has become a popular anti-aging treatment among patients who want to resolve moderate signs of aging. BOTOX® works quickly and effectively by relaxing the facial muscles that contract and cause lines and wrinkles to form. The treatment typically requires about 10 minutes and is performed by Dr. Rose himself. The average treatment lasts an average of three to four months.
Sculptra is an injectable product that adds volume to various areas of the face to create a soft, natural, more youthful look. It has the added benefit of triggering the body to produce more collagen as it gradually disappears. The results of Sculptra can be seen for years, and may involve multiple treatment sessions, depending upon the condition of your skin and tissue.
Volbella is a newer filler that adds subtle volume to the lips and softens the appearance of vertical lip lines.
The newest hyaluronic acid that lasts up to 18 months and can be injected almost anywhere other products are injected.
Grow your lashes longer, darker and thicker with this amazing product. Apply every day to your upper eyelid to see lusher lashes in just 4-6 weeks.
This product helps add fullness to the cheeks and mid-face area. It can help contour and provide a noticeable lift your mid-face for up to two years.
Injectable Fillers and Skincare Products
For our patients across Utah, including Salt Lake City, Provo, and beyond, injectable fillers have become a very popular option to appear younger – without invasive surgery. These treatments are effective, affordable, and provide fast and long-lasting results, with no downtime or recovery. These procedures can usually be performed in our office in one short visit. Unlike older, animal-derived products, today’s “next generation” fillers do not require allergy pre-testing, so you can enjoy younger looking skin after a single appointment.
Typically, an injectable filler procedure takes only 30 minutes or less, so you can have it performed over your lunch break. The needle Dr. Rose uses is very fine, and causes minimal redness and swelling. He combines his skill as a surgeon with his refined aesthetic sensibility to add the right amount of volume just where you need it. Most patients find that they can return to normal activities immediately following their treatment. If you would like, a topical numbing cream can be called in for you to apply prior to coming or we can apply it and have you wait a short time for it to take effect.
Dr. Rose recommends that you avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and any consumption of alcoholic beverages for 24 hours following your treatment. This is to help minimize the risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. For individuals who would like to see more dramatic, permanent results, facelift surgery may produce the look you are hoping to achieve.
