Non-Surgical Procedures

Cosmetic Injectable

Although there are lots of cosmetic injectables out there, it is relatively simple to categorize the injectables. Only Botox is FDA approved to be used as “paralytic agent” to reduce wrinkles. Soon there will be another FDA approved paralytic agent on the market, but for now, Botox by Allergan is the gold standard. The rest of the injectables are FDA approved as “dermal fillers” for and correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles, lines and folds. The cosmetic injectables are so versatile that for the right candidate, “non-surgical” volume enhancement of the nose, cheek, chin, and lip area can yield a result closely comparable to a surgical procedure. In our office we mainly use Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra plus, and Radiesse, because Dr.Kang believes these THREE injectables are the most versatile dermal fillers and volume enhancers yielding most natural looking results, and are the longest lasting with least amount of potential problems.
