The practice of Dr. Christopher Manios focuses exclusively on facial rejuvenation through aesthetic injectables. His Walnut Creek and Pleasanton patients benefit from non-invasive solutions that provide attractive, natural-looking, and lasting results.
Dr. Manios’s selection of treatments includes the following:
If you have noticed more prominent frown lines between your eyes or crow’s feet at their outer edges, or significant forehead lines you may be a good candidate for BOTOX. Treatment can reduce their appearance and prevent them from becoming permanent. It can also soften and resolve the permanent lines over time.
Eliminate a double chin with the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for submental fullness. KYBELLA is unique among aesthetic injectables for Walnut Creek and Pleasanton patients because it is capable of destroying unwanted fat cells. Treatment can provide permanent improvement and a firmer, fitter appearance.
JUVÉDERM® XC, JUVÉDERM Ultra XC, and JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC
This family of products adds volume to facial features and promotes hydration with hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Dr. Manios uses each of these aesthetic injectables for different purposes, from adding fullness to the lips and cheeks to reducing smile line wrinkles.
VOLUMA is another product in the JUVÉDERM line. Dr. Manios typically uses it to add volume to the cheeks and to restore a youthful contour to the face. VOLUMA can provide patients with up to two years of improvement.
If vertical lines above your lips are aging your appearance or if you notice a prominent demarcation between your cheeks and lower eyelids, you may benefit from VOLBELLA. The product returns fullness and a lift to features while softening perioral lines, tear troughs, and other signs of aging.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE ™ XC
Another product in the JUVÉDERM line, VOLLURE can help correct nasolabial folds. VOLLURE can last up to 2 years and can provide a much more refreshed and youthful appearance of the face.
The Benefits of Aesthetic Injectables
Walnut Creek and Pleasanton patients have a variety of options for aesthetic improvement, from facial treatments to extensive surgery. Each offers its own advantages in terms of duration, effectiveness, safety, invasiveness, and natural-looking outcomes.
Aesthetic injectables can provide you with an excellent balance of each of these attributes, particularly when your doctor has extensive experience in a variety of injectable products:
- Aesthetic injectables can last from four months (BOTOX) to a full lifetime (fat reduction with KYBELLA).
- Injectables are well established, FDA-approved products.
- In many cases, you should immediately see the results that you get from injections.
- You can typically return to normal activities after an appointment for aesthetic injectables. This allows for more discrete, ongoing treatment and improved comfort when compared to surgery.
While aesthetic injectables can’t resolve every patients need, those in Dr. Manios’s care are often surprised at the level of enhancement they can get with these products.
Dedicated to Non-Surgical Aesthetic Improvement
Many practices led by plastic surgeons emphasize surgical intervention over treatment with aesthetic injectables. Often, nurses make the injections rather than doctors, and those doctors who do perform the treatment typically have more experience in other procedures.
Dr. Manios has dedicated his career to providing Walnut Creek and Pleasanton patients with enhancement through aesthetic injectables. During his training as a plastic surgeon and through advanced education at Stanford and Harvard University, he recognized the benefits that injectable solutions offered. At the same time, he found that existing practices did not serve the needs of patients who didn’t want a surgical approach.
Dr. Manios’s practice was born out of a desire to give patients:
- A personal, discrete, boutique-level experience.
- The time patients need to learn about their aesthetic options.
- Treatment that promotes natural-looking, effective outcomes.
If you are exploring options for rejuvenating your features in a non-surgical, predictable, and attractive way, consider scheduling an appointment with his practice to discuss aesthetic injectables.
