Facial Sculpting with Dermal Fillers Prior to Homeoblock™ Treatment

We have established that a combination of dermal fillers for injection in the mid-face region and Homeoblock™ appliance treatment can dramatically reduce the signs of aging.

The protocol has been 9-12 months of Homeoblock™ appliance treatment followed by injections of the dermal fillers, Restylane® and Radiesse™

As a first step, we can provide the injections followed by treatment with the Homeoblock™ appliance.

Case Study:

A 58 year old female with good bone structure presents for anti-aging treatment. Her chief complaint is sagging neck and jowls

Injections of 0.9cc Radiesse™ in the nasolabial fold and pre-jowl area were given.

Radiesse™ injections were followed by injections of 1ml Restylane® for lip enhancement.

Two weeks after treatment, her neck and jowls are improved. Impressions are now taken for a Homeoblock™ appliance. Stay tuned for the results.
