Patients in Fort Lauderdale and Broward County seeking to rejuvenate the looks of their hands, ears, and labia, are turning to Nathan Eberle, MD, DDS at the Weston Center for Plastic Surgery.
AGING HANDS – USING DERMAL FILLERS FOR HAND REJUVENATION
The skin undergoes several changes as we age. It begins to lose its fullness, looks less smooth and becomes thinner. By using Restylane®, Juvederm® or another dermal filler, you can undergo a hand rejuvenation treatment that will reduce wrinkles, leave your hands with a less bony-looking appearance and eliminate fine lines.
HOW DOES A DERMAL FILLER REJUVENATE YOUR HANDS?
After the filler is injected, it plumps up the hands to give them a fuller, more youthful appearance. The filler will also make fine lines less noticeable. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, which is found in Juvederm® and Restylane®, is specially formulated to act similar to your body’s own hyaluronic acid, and eventually breaks down naturally.
AM I AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR HAND REJUVENATION?
If you are bothered by the aged appearance of your hands, you might want to consider hand rejuvenation. The affordable procedure produces immediate and lasting results. Ultimately, you are the only one who knows whether or not this is a look you want to achieve. At your consultation, you’ll be able to discuss your goals and the treatment process with the doctor, who will then determine the type and amount of filler that best fits your needs.
EARLOBE REJUVENATION: THE LOBE LIFT
A woman’s face and neck are the parts of the body that usually give away a women’s age. The earlobes, however, are another area that can reveal that actual number.
While most people remember to apply sunscreen to their bodies, the earlobes are often forgotten, which results in them experiencing the effects of sun damage.
The reduction of collagen causes earlobes to lose their elasticity, which results in their elongated appearance. Women who wear heavy, dangling earrings that weigh down the earlobes are at increased risk of drooping earlobes. These types of earrings exaggerate the problem created by the loss of elasticity.
Because earlobes are now known to show a person’s true age, it is not surprising that there is a cosmetic treatment for this issue. Earlobe rejuvenation, also known as an ‘earlobe lift’ is a popular procedure in the United States.
With an earlobe rejuvenation, an injectable filler is used to increase the volume and restore the shape to lobes that are stretched from wearing heavy earrings and elongated due to collagen loss.
Earlobe rejuvenation restores earlobes that have experienced the following:
Stretching due to wearing heavy earrings
DERMAL FILLERS TO REPAIR EARLOBES
Injecting just a small amount of dermal filler into your earlobe will cause it to expand. The expansion occurs immediately after the injection is administered. The earlobe will stretch outward, allowing it to look smaller and more youthful. The results of these injections can last up to a year or more. If you have found that your holes have stretched from years of wearing heavy earrings, the injections will also help to minimize the size of the holes. Because the earlobes do not experience as much movement as the face, the results of the injection last longer.
VAGINAL REJUVENATION USING DERMAL FILLERS
Some women find that there is a deflation and laxity of the labia majora (large lips of the vagina) as they age. Decreasing estrogen levels may also lead to laxity of the labia majora. The problem may first be noticed after childbirth or during menopause. The labial puff procedure can be done without surgical intervention. Injecting Restylane® and Juvederm® into the area will tighten the skin and decrease skin wrinkling.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM VAGINAL REJUVENATION USING DERMAL FILLERS
Before the injection, Nathan Eberle, MD, DDS apply a numbing ointment to the skin of the labia majora. They use a thin needle to inject a hyaluronic-type injectable (Restylane® or Juvederm®) to the labia majora. The injections will cause the area to “puff up”. You will notice that the skin appears to be less wrinkled, smoother and tighter. The puffing up of the labia majora will help to hide the labia minora (small lips). Vaginal rejuvenation helps to restore a balanced and aesthetic appeal.
HOW MUCH DO DERMAL FILLERS FOR HANDS, EARS, AND LABIA COST?
The cost of dermal fillers for hands, ears, and labia differs based on the amount of product needed per treatment. Financing options are available.
