Botox is the first and only FDA approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet. Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet. Botox works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time. Botox is injected into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily interrupting their normal excursion; the result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines. Smoothing of the lines may become apparent within 24‐48 hours and the results should last between 3‐6 months. Botox injections are generally well tolerated; some observe it feels like a pinch. If you are concerned about discomfort, topical numbing cream can be applied before your treatment.


The Newport Beach Liquid Facelift with Lavinia K. Chong, M.D., F.A.C.S.

  1. Restylane: includes a portfolio of hyaluronic acid fillers, sugars which occur naturally in our bodies. As we age, we produce less Hyaluronic acid and break down more. Skin patch testing is unnecessary as allergic responses occur infrequently. Hyaluronic acid has an affinity for water; this property can be used to soften radial lip lines, “tear trough” (under the lower lid) hollows, as well as to volumize lips, support nasolabial folds and marionette lines. The effects may last between 6‐9 months.
  2. Voluma: Improvement of facial aging isn’t limited to filling lines and folds. Loss of facial fat occurs in specific zones, yielding a deflated appearance. As cheek volume is lost, the shape of the face changes from the “triangle of youth” and converts to the “pyramid of age”. Voluma is the first and only FDA approved injectable (NASHA) Hyaluronic acid to instantly add volume to the mid‐face and outer cheek. The contour and a subtle lift may last up to two years.
  3. Teoxane RHA: Teoxane introduces dermal fillers designed for facial dynamics … filler in motion designed to achieve a more natural look. Designed to be more like the natural hyaluronic acid in your skin, the latest HA filler technology is only available at select practices.
  4. Belotero: This variant of Hyaluronic acid filler is designed to be injected superficially, in thin skin and thus is best suited for the lower lid hollowing or “tear trough” deformity without the risk of the Tyndall effect (bluish discoloration). The lower lid requires relatively small amounts and the “correction” may endure 6‐8 months.
