Filler or Ultherapy for "crow's feet"?
I have had 10 injections of Artefill and I'm not seeing a huge difference. Along with "crow's feet" I am concerned with my lower face. I am wondering if Ulthera may be a better choice for me. - C
Thank you for your inquiry from RealSelf.
First, I am not really a fan of Artefill. The way it is used now is better – but it does have some very real serious reactions that can occur – even years after having the injections. SO – that biases me a bit. Ulthera may be a great choice for you if you are seeing early to “middle” signs of aging. I always tailor my recommendations to each individual based on how their face may be aging and also what their personal concerns are and, of course, the pocket book.
For crow’s feet – the mainstay of treatment is Botox, however, filler (Belotero) and Ultherapy can be used to improve this area as well.
So – the very best thing would be for you to come in for a consultation with me and we can see what will work best for you. Please call 206-859-5777 to schedule a cosmetic consult. Be sure to mention RealSelf and the $80 consult fee is waived.
Thank you again.
