The aging process causes changes in our face that makes us look old. The most obvious change in most people is the loss of fat in specific areas of the face. This loss of volume results in sunken areas around the eyes and mouth. The result of this deflation is sagging of the skin, especialy in the cheeks and jowls, and hollow areas, particularly below the eyes. Trauma to the face can also contribute to these unsightly areas of sunkenness. Using a technique called Fat Transfer to the Face, we can plump up those areas and restore the natural fullness that you had with youth without undergoing a facelift.
Other changes that occur with age include the presence of pigmentations scattered on the face (called age spots), fine lines and wrinkles. The texture and color of the skin changes to a sallow or pale appearance. CO2 Laser Resurfacing is the gold standard technique to correct these problems. It can reduce or obliterate age induced pigmentations, smooth out the skin and reduce the fine lines and wrinkles, and it stimulates collagen production within the skin to give is a more youthful appearance.
Combining several procedures can result in a remarkable enhancement of your more youthful face. It gives you much better results than doing just one single procedure, which makes sense since the aging process is not just one problem. You need to tighten the skin, reduce the pigmentations, smooth the skin, replace volume to the sunken areas. To do adequate facial rejuvenation, you should consider multiple options for maximal results.
Photofacials are outpatient procedures with no downtime that treat a variety of skin conditions to rejuvenate the skin and bring back more youthful looking skin. They use specific wavelengths of intense light in a pulsed fashion that can even skin color and decrease abnormal pigmentations to the skin. They also improve tone and texture of the skin, treat sun damaged skin, and reduce vascular imperfections and redness. Acne and rosacea treatments can be performed to reduce redness of the skin. The technology can be used not only on the face, but also on the neck, chest, hands and legs.
Botox cosmetic relaxes specific facial muscles of the face to smooth out wrinkles that can form from the contractions of these muscles. The most common areas are in the forehead, the glabella and the sides of the eyes (crow’s feet). The procedures is quick and simple with results lasting around three months. People come back every three months to get retreated because they like the way they look after each treatment.
Facial Fillers are usually hyaluronic acid compounds that fill sunken areas on the face to replenish the lost volume that occurs during the aging process. The most common ones that we use are Juvederm and Voluma. Sunken areas below the eyes and around the mouth can be enhanced with this quick technique. Lips can also be enhanced. Another technique is to use your own plasma to assist in the enhancement, called the PlasmaLift or Vampire Lift.
For those who are troubled with submental chin fat, Kybella may be a good option. It is an FDA approved solution that can dissolve and shrink the excess fat under the chin plus it can tighten the skin area mildly to bring the chin skin upward. An office based procedure with minimal downtime, the procedure is simple injection into the fat under the skin using only a local anesthetic.
Microneedling of the skin is a Micropen technique that stimulates collagen formation below the skin. It can decrease pigmentations while smoothing the skin for excellent facial skin rejuvenation. This quick 20 minute procedure is performed in our office with only the need of local anesthetic. You see some reddening of the skin but otherwise you can go back to normal activities immediately.
One of the most beautiful features of a pretty woman’s face is her eyes, particularly her eyelashes. Long eyelashes exentuate the beauty of her eyes. There are now great products that are inexpensive that can make your eyelashes longer and thicker. Sometimes a combination of these works very well. Look at your options and pick the one that works best for you.
A quick in-office procedure with no downtime to reduce wrinkles is ThermiSmooth. Radio frequency waves are used to tighten and smooth the skin in a procedure that can take only 15 minutes but which provides amazing results. Radio frequency shrinks collagen in the skin resulting in tightening of the skin. It also stimulates production of more collagen from fibroblasts all resulting in a more youthful, regenerated look and less wrinkles. It is especially useful for wrinkles that form on the sides of the eyes (crow’s feet) and cheek areas.
Facial Skin Maintenance
Maintenance is necessary to keep your face looking younger. Daily use of products is the key. Retinol, TNS Essential Serum and Lytera are probably the best products that you could do for maintenance of your skin. Retinol works on the DNA of your skin cells to make them grow more uniformly and to dispurse the pigment melanocytes in a more even fashion on your skin. TNS Essential Serum rejuvenates collagen, lightens and protects your skin with multiple antioxidants. Lytera specifically lightens pigmented areas to make your skin color more uniform.
The PDO Thread Lift helps to slightly lift and tighten the lower cheek and jaw line areas. The procedure uses absorbable (non-permanent) sutures, is performed in the office with just a local anesthetic, and has minimal to no downtime. Of course it doesn’t replace a face lift, but it definitely improves the tone of the skin. It is primarily used in the lower third of the face, i.e. cheeks and jowls areas, and lasts from six months to 1-2 years depending on the laxity of your skin.
