What type of fillers does Dr. Kwan use?

Dr. Kwan uses several types of fillers, including what is known as Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a material that dissolves when injected, over a period of three months to a year. It is marketed by different companies under different brand names, but the most common brands used today are Restylane and Juvéderm.

Botox Injection Procedure From Dr. Edmund Kwan

Restylane lasts for a short period of time but is good for use around the eye and lip area. Juvéderm is used in the nasolabial groove in the face and the cheek area. It also depends on the patients’ choice of the alternatives they would prefer to use. However, Dr. Kwan prefers to use Juvéderm because it tends to last longer than Restylane.

There is another material known as Radiesse, which is a calcium bead formulation. Radiesse is great for the cheekbone area, especially when patients are having facial sagging and have developed grooves in that area. It provides a little more of a lifting effect and is also excellent for use around the nasolabial area. Dr. Kwan does not usually use Radiesse on the lips or the eyelid area.

What our patients say

G

I went to Dr. Kwan to get rid of my sagging jowls. When I consulted with him, he was sincere and honest to say that possibly we could get better results. When all was said and done, I feel and look 10 years younger. I love what he did. I had no complications. I appreciated his honesty, sincerity and certainly his fine work.
I would go back to him in a flash!!!
