      Dermal Fillers & Botox®

      Juvéderm®

      Facial wrinkles and creases begin to appear in your lips and skin as the underlying collagen and elastin fibers begin to break down and wear out. While this breakdown is part of the natural aging process, it can also result from excessive squinting, frowning and smiling. In the past, the most frequently used material for filling facial wrinkles and frown lines was injectable collagen. Recently, hyaluronic acid has exploded on the scene as the longer-lasting, more natural filler preferred by physicians worldwide. Now Juvéderm® wrinkle filler treatments are performed by Dr. Gul Zikira for patients in our region. It is a natural, cross-linked, non-animal hyaluronic acid filler developed using biosynthesis that can help you meet your goals without the fear of an allergic reaction. This new hyaluronic acid known as Juvéderm® has been used in Europe for years.

      Treatments are done in our office and take about 30 minutes and the result is immediate. Juvéderm® contains hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal-clear gel. Unlike other fillers, it is supplied to your doctor in densities. Each one is designed for a specific treatment area. Dr. Zikiramay use a mixture of densities to help you achieve your desired appearance. Juvéderm® is injected into the skin to create volume, resulting in a healthy and vital appearance. When injected into the lip it can restore a more natural and/or sensuous look. In contrast to other implants, Juvéderm® is not extracted from animals. This means that you don't have to worry about an allergic reaction. Juvéderm is perfectly safe to use instantly without pre-testing.

      Botox® Cosmetic

      Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. These lines caused by facial muscles can give a person an angry, tired or sad appearance - even when they are not experiencing that emotion. The more emotion you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. Botox® Cosmetic treatments are performed by Dr. Zikira for patients in the San Jose area so they can prevent the formation of dynamic wrinkles.

      Botox® Cosmetic is the latest advancement in botulinum toxin therapy. It is used to safely, simply and effectively improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases and "crow's feet." By relaxing the underlying muscles, Botox® Cosmetic reduces wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic is a remarkable treatment for dynamic wrinkles resulting from repeated use of facial muscles. Botox® Cosmetic actually prevents wrinkles from appearing by relaxing the underlying muscles so they don't contract. Botox® Cosmetic blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing your normal facial expression to be unaffected.

      During your consultation with our physician you will discuss your concerns and the changes that you'd like to make in your appearance. The Dr. Zikira will explain Botox® Cosmetic treatments to you, review the procedure, and point out the risks and limitations involved. Together you will decide if Botox® Cosmetic is for you.

      RADIESSE®

      Imagine young-looking, wrinkle-free skin. For patients with well-defined wrinkles or creases, such as the fold between their nose and mouth, most cosmetic surgeons surveyed agree that injectable fillers may be the best treatment available to date. Previously, the only way to fill these wrinkles was with a lifetime of bovine (cow) collagen injections, which can cause allergic reactions, or solid implants that can look and feel unnatural. Now RADIESSE® injections are offered by Dr. Gul Zikira for patients in our region to provide a safe, long-lasting, natural alternative to these tissue fillers.

      After Dr. Zikira performs your Juvéderm® injections, normal activities can be resumed immediately. Discomfort is minimal. The treatment site may have a little swelling, which may last a few hours. There may be some slight bruising which can be covered with make-up. Depending on the area treated, correction usually lasts from 6 - 9 months. If you have been wondering how to get rid of your wrinkles but aren't ready for surgery, Juvéderm® may be the answer.

      Bellafill®

      Bellafill® combines time-proven bovine collagen with inert, medical grade PMMA microspheres.

      PMMA is an inert plastic. It is the most widely used artificial material in medicine today. PMMA has been used in artificial lens replacements in cataract surgery for over 35 million patients worldwide. Bellafill® uses completely round microspheres of PMMA. Each sphere is smaller in diameter than a human hair and will be completely encapsulated by your body's own collagen fibers. Encapsulation prevents dislocation and migration. Collagen is found in every mammal. It is found throughout the body in skin, cartilage, and tendons. Collagen acts as the glue binding different structures within the body. Collagen has a long, safe history in medical implants such as sutures and Injectables. PMMA microspheres are evenly suspended in the collagen solution. The collagen is used as the vehicle to enable Dr. Zikria to implant the PMMA microspheres into dermal deficiencies.
