Last month I talked about how there’s more than one way to reduce fat. This month, we continue our series and talk about popular facial rejuvenation options.
We often consult with patients about why they are unhappy about what they see when they look in the mirror or at selfies. Mostly, they want to know how they can take years off their face. Fortunately, we have many ways to help patients reverse the hands of time.
Injectable and Dermal Filler Facial Rejuvenation
The most popular nonsurgical approach involves neuromodulators. The best known and most popular is Botox®. My expert injector team also uses Jeuveau™, Xeomin®, and Dysport® — all which can inhibit unwanted wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. Treatments are quick and nonsurgical, and results last for months at a time, making the face appear smoother and more youthful for as long as the effects last.
Our younger patients in their mid to late 20s and early 30s are discovering that neuromodulator injections are excellent at preventing the formation of wrinkles.
Have you noticed deep wrinkles and hallow facial areas that make you look like one of your older relatives? Dermal fillers, based on hyaluronic acid, may be the solution you seek. They temporarily soften facial wrinkles, provide facial volume, and augment facial features. We proudly use Juvéderm, the #1 chosen dermal filler collection that has five different products to customize your exacting needs. Imagine: plump those thin lips; smooth out lines; lift and contour cheeks! It’s an in-office nonsurgical treatment and, depending on which filler and where injected, the effects can last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.
A Step Further
Many patients need something a bit more or different. For you, we have lots of options:
- Lose the double chin: Gravity and fat (not to mention genetics) combine to create that second — or even third — chin. Fortunately, we now have Kybella and CoolSculpting for helping you improve your jawline.
- Lift It: Lift and add volume to your midface with the minimally invasive in-office Silhouette InstaLift procedure.
- Laser It: Lasers are a great way to address fine lines and wrinkles or enhance overall skin quality and minimize surface-level imperfections. The Ellipse IPL™ and Frax 1550 laser help offset chronological aging, as well as exposure to harsh environmental like UV radiation from sunlight, weather extremes, pollutants, toxins, and cigarette smoke.
- Tighten It: Need some skin tightening but not ready or wanting a facelift? FaceTite is a great solution for “tweeners.” It is a minimally invasive treatment that safely contracts and contours tissue using RF technology.
Time for surgery? You don’t want to look pulled or plastic. Instead, I believe in helping patients look like themselves, just refreshed and maybe a few years (or a decade or two) younger. Options include facelift, brow lift, and eye lid (Blepharoplasty) surgeries. You may only need your eyes done, or maybe with a brow lift. Or are you ready for a full facelift? Whatever point you’ve reached in wanting to de-age your face, we’ll determine the best plan together.
