Beauty is ever-evolving. Rarely do trends in aesthetic medicine resurface since new technologies consistently beat out their predecessors. What was popular 15 years ago is now considered almost archaic by today’s standards.
|Dr Kenneth Lee Aesthetic Physician||FILLERS||Collagen
We use to use it like ‘spackle’ to fill in lines. But the results didn’t last, which is why it’s been taken off the market
Hyaluronic acid fillers are my no. 1 choice for filling line s and folds, sculpting, adding volume and giving structure. They produce consistent and natural looking results, we keep finding new ways to use them, and they are currently being produced to last even longer.

In the past, everyone wanted the same nose- smaller with a thin bridge and a upturned tip
|Customized and Natural- looking
We now take a much more customized approach in addressing each rhinoplasty, in particular taking into account racial and ethnic differences. The emphasis is on preserving or improving support for a more natural and better functioning nose.

20 years ago, we used to think that tight facial skin was the key to looking young
|Full is Better
Simultaneous replacement of 3 dimensional volume and tightening the skin yields the most natural results.
|Dr Kenneth Lee Anti-Aging Physician||ANTI-AGING EFFORTS||Little Preventative Measures
Patients weren’t as aware about aging, much less taking a proactive approach. They waited until a problem arose to fix it
|Tackle Aging Early
Today people are focused on prevention; numerous studies have found that doing rejuvenation treatments such as lasers or Thermageearlier,while there is still more collagen in the skin, yields greater results

Deep peels required prolonged periods of downtime with some possible side effects
Rejuvenation options are endless. IPL reverses damage with no time or pain
