This 39-year-old woman who never recovered fully from an episode of Bells’ Palsy requested minimally invasive procedures to improve facial symmetry. She comes in regularly to receive Botox, and sometimes facial fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse to her lips and to the grooves between the nose and the corner of the lips (nasolabial folds). Each and every time she comes in, she tells everyone in the waiting room that Dr. Kass is a “miracle worker.” She confides that although her income is “modest,” she would rather spend her money on improving her appearance than on trading in her car for a newer one.
This 40-year-old woman comes regularly for Botox to relieve the furrows between her eyebrows. She confided that she was very unhappy with the pouches she had below her eyes but did not want surgery. After discussing her options with her, Dr. Kass used Juvederm to fill in the under eye hollows. The result? The patient looks like she had expensive eyelid surgery without the down time and or the expense of surgery. She is thrilled that Dr. Kass suggested this for her.
This 37-year-old woman was extremely self-conscious about the scar she received from a car accident. While Dr. Kass explained that nothing could take away or “erase” the scar (as some competitors’ ads might suggest), he did believe that a filler such as restylane might make the scar much less noticeable by filling in the areas of depression. Both of them were thrilled with the results of this non-surgical procedure.
