There is a significant trend towards women wanting micro-augmentation of facial features, meaning subtle enhancements to keep their face sculpted, defined, and lifted. Here, we used a combination of fillers composed of hyaluronic acid to achieve a youthful, contoured look by meticulously placing filler in multiple areas of the face for overall rejuvenation. To balance her lower face, I placed filler on either side of the patient’s chin for seamless definition from the jawline to the chin where some women can experience the appearance of jowls as they age. Subtle projection of the chin is achieved through deep injections onto the bone followed by depot injections to soften the area. As volume diminishes as we age, we plump the lips, giving an even, more youthful improvement to the lower face. Injecting areas that can decrease in volume and appear to droop or sag, like the cheeks will give major lifting to the tissue for a tighter, contoured facial structure.⁣

So many women have hormonal changes, weight, and stressors that cause significant changes in volume and laxity of the skin as they age, so fillers can be used to help give subtle improvements while considering surgical options if needed. ⁣⁣The key to achieving the perfect amount of enhancement without giving this patient an “overdone” or “doll” look is by using a slow and meticulous ‘micro-aliquot’ injections and small amounts of filler over time.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

As Emerage Medical reopens to the public, we’re implementing extensive protocols to keep our practice virus-free, and our staff and patients safe. Our approach closely follows public health directives and the latest recommendations from medical journals and academies.

Fewer People, Less Risk
The most visible change is reduced in-office staff. Fewer people means less person-to-person contact. We are only seeing about 25% of our normal patient volume and will only increase this by expanding our operating schedule – not by reducing time between patients.

Here’s How Patients Can Help
1. Please do not bring guests unless absolutely necessary, as they will not be permitted in the waiting room.
2. Please continue to wear a mask or face covering until you enter the exam room.
3. We screen everyone who enters the office – staff and patients alike – about recent travel, flu-like symptoms, and any potential exposure to COVID-19. Please help us by being transparent in your answers.
4. Please allow our staff to take your temperature at check-in using a contactless thermometer.

What to Expect After Check-In
After the check-in screening, patients will be directly escorted to their exam room to complete any paperwork. This is to reduce potential contact with other patients. Clean pens and clipboards will be provided to everyone and resterilized between each use.

Even More Safety Measures
Everyone on our staff has been directed not to come in if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or recently came in direct contact with anyone who’s tested positive. Here’s what else we’re doing to keep you safer:

  • Staff members will be wearing protective masks at all times.
  • All chairs, surfaces, and non-disposable equipment will be wiped down with antibacterial wipes between patients and at the top of every hour. 
  • All in-person meetings with suppliers, vendors, or salespeople have been canceled to reduce unnecessary foot traffic.
  • Hand-sanitizing stations are available in nearly every area of the office.
  • The entire practice will be cleaned each night, including periodic deep cleanings to further sanitize the premises.
