Injectable fillers are a great way to help you look younger and refreshed without the need for surgery. As we age, we lose collagen and fat in our skin. And what we do have left often sags to where we don’t want it.

Injectable fillers help smooth the wrinkles, scars and folds of the face, leaving a younger, smoother, often lifted appearance. They may also be used to add volume to thin or aging lips.

The Restylane line of hyaluronic acid fillers is used to smooth away wrinkles and fine lines (Restylane& Restylane Lyft), create fuller and more accentuated lips (Restylane Silk), and add lift and volume to the cheeks (Restylane Lyft).

All Restylane products work to enhance facial features and give long-lasting, yet non-permanent results.

During your consultation, your injector will give an honest assessment of what he or she thinks would benefit you. We are known for being conservative but still effective. We prefer to start conservatively and want you to look like you, only more refreshed. Our goal is to have you look in the mirror and look as good as you feel.

These treatments are offered by both Dr. Balikian and his Aesthetic injectors.

Dr. Balikian and his Aesthetic injectors also use an Injection technique with a cannula, so it will dramatically reduce swelling and bruising in this area than the traditional syringe needle injection technique.

We advise patients to avoid using blood thinning medications such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen or Omega-3 Fish Oils for one week before any injection to help decrease the risk of bruising. In addition, avoiding alcohol a few nights before injection and taking the herbal medication arnica may help decrease the risk of bruising.
