Voluma treatment for hollow templesOne of the most commonly neglected areas for facial rejuvenation is the hollowing in the temples. Voluma is a filler that can be used to correct hollow temples.

Over time there are many changes that occur in the face. These include wrinkle formation, loosening of the skin, and dark spots. Additionally, bony structures change and fat is lost. These changes are very prominent and common in the temples. The bones move inward and the fat pad in the area is lost. This occurs more frequently in thin people who exercise a lot, leading to an appearance of a skeleton in the upper face.

These changes can easily be corrected with filler treatments. Fillers are products that are used to restore lost volume in the face and other areas on the body. Dr. Alex finds that Voluma is the best product in this area. Voluma is a dermal filler in the Juvederm family, the most popular family of fillers in the United States. The active ingredient in Voluma is hyaluronic acid, a sugar that’s found in the skin naturally. Hyaluronic acid binds a thousand times its weight in water so it draws water into the skin providing volume. This helps fill the hollows and provide a natural and healthy appearance.

In contrast to other hyaluronic acid products, Voluma has a high level of hyaluronic acid. This is perfect for placement on bones such as in the temples or upper cheeks. The treatment for the temples is very easy because there is only a single injection point on each side as is seen in the video demonstration shown here. An immediately lift is seen in the area.

An important advantage of Voluma is that it is safe in the event of side effects. The most concerning side effects occur when a filler is inadvertently placed into an artery, which blocks blood supply to the area. Hyaluronic acid products can be dissolved which allows us to easily treat these types of side effects. On the other hand, non-hyaluronic acid fillers such as Radiesse, Sculptra, and Bellafil cannot be reversed and therefore such side effects are much more dangerous.

Swelling is normal after a Voluma treatment to treat hollow temples. It may also be difficult to chew for a few days because the swelling puts pressure on a muscle in the area that we use to bite. Dr. Alex recommend avoiding heat exposure, alcohol consumption, and strenuous exercise for 24 hours after a Voluma treatment. To reduce swelling after a Voluma treatment Dr. Alex recommends applying ice packs on and off for five minutes at a time as much as possible for the first few days. Sleeping on an extra pillow will reduce the amount of blood brought to the skin overnight and decreases the swelling. Also, avoiding salty foods will prevent your body from retaining water and therefore decrease swelling. Most people require two syringes of Voluma per side. Full results are seen two weeks after the Voluma treatment once the swelling has gone down. The best thing about a Voluma treatment for hollow temples is that you can enjoy the results for two years or more.

Dr. Alex with staff on the red carpetOn November 29, 2018 we celebrated the Grand Opening of our new office and our Holiday Party.

New Office

A E Skin moved to our new office in September 2018. The new office is all our own and not shared with other doctors. This decreases confusion for patients visiting our office and allows for more opportunities us to accommodate our patients. Our reception area is comfortable and spacious with refreshments including fresh fruit, sparkling water, and hot coffee. Our consultation room is large with a view of the Santa Monica mountains. The treatment suite is significantly larger than that in the previous office and the ventilation is improved. We have a dedicated room for photography, allowing photographs to be taken quickly and efficiently. We also have a relaxation room with a massage chair, dimmed lighting, a television playing relaxing videos, and aroma therapy where patients can enjoy a relaxing massage while numbing for their treatments. Televisions are placed in all the rooms allowing our guests to be comfortable; some even provide information about treatments including testimonials and before and after pictures.

Grand Opening and Holiday Party

We went all out at our Grand Opening party. The furniture was rearranged to accommodate our guests. Our consultation room was converted into a photography suite with a red carpet, step and repeat backdrop, and special lighting. The relaxation room was converted into a suite with multiple chairs where guests could learn about our products and treatments. Multiple patients took advantage of an opportunity to provide video testimonials. We had balloons in the building hallway to guide our patients and more balloons in the photography area. A professional photographer and videographer were in attendance to document everything.

Live Demonstrations

The highlights of the party were the live demonstrations of some of our most popular treatments. First Dr. Alex performed a liquid facelift using Botox and a variety of fillers. Botox was used in the upper face to relax wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. Then Dr. Alex used Voluma in the cheeks to lift the lower face, Vollure in the laugh lines to smoothen them out, and Volbella to correct fine lines in the lower cheek. After the treatment, Dr. Alex demonstrated the use of our new anti-bruise patch. The second live demonstration was an Ultra Microneedling treatment. This is an outstanding treatment designed by Dr. Alex to address fine lines, wrinkles, uneven color, and irregular texture with minimal recovery time. It works by creating thousands of tiny holes and generating heat to stimulate your body to form its own natural, new, fresh, and healthy collagen. This provide a radiant glow to the skin and corrects irregularities. After this treatment our staff demonstrated the use of our Hydrating mask, applied on the skin immediately after an Ultra Microneedling treatment, which quickly calms down the skin.

We thank our partners from Allergan (makers of Botox, Voluma, Vollure, Volbella, and Kybella), Alastin Skin Care (makers of the Skin Nectar and Hydratint sunscreen), and Topix (maker of the A E Skin Green Tea Essentials products) for their support. Catering was provided by Street Café by Aroma. To celebrate we served wine and champagne. Patients had an opportunity to take advantage of promotions on all products and services. At the end of the night we had a raffle for a variety of skin care products and treatments. Our guests always love our best dressed contest; the winners each received a prize.

Everyone had such a wonderful time at our party. To continue the celebration, we are honoring all promotions through the end of the year in the holiday spirit. We look forward to continued success and celebrations in the future.
