When injectable fillers first made their debut they were used exclusively to fill in facial folds. Today fillers are used for much more. They replace volume and reposition the skin to add volume, actually lift folds, smooth out lines and wrinkles and take years off an aging face…instantly and with longer lasting results from advanced formulas.
PRIMER on INJECTABLES: It’s important to understand how aging affects certain areas of your face and what options are best suited to correct the aging such as:
- CROW’S FEET are fine lines that start at the outer corner of the eyes and extend out. These are caused by muscle activity. We correct them using BOTOX or DYSPORT (neurotoxins).
- DROOPY BROWS are caused by excessive brow movement and can cause loss of the natural eyebrow arch resulting in a heavy appearance. BOTOX or DYSPORT can lift the eyebrows to their natural, youthful position.
- TEAR TROUGHS and HOLLOWS start below the bridge of the nose and lower eyelid, extending downward toward the cheek. RESTYLANE, JUVEDERM or BELOTERO safely treats these areas.
- CHEEKS, TEMPLES and JAWLINES … As fat diminishes with aging, these areas commonly sag and appear shallow. I use NEW VOLUMA XC, RADIESSE, PERLANE, RESTYLANE or JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS to restore natural youthfulness.
- NASOLABIAL FOLDS are lines extending downward from the bottom of the nose to the outer corners of the lips and are caused by fat that has shifted due to normal aging. RESTYLANE, JUVEDERM, PERLANE, RADIESSE or BELOTERO corrects these unwelcome folds!
- LIPS...Over time your lips can become thin, flat and lose their youthful shape and fullness. Great lip plumpers include: JUVEDERM, RESTYLANE, PERLANE or BELOTERO.
FILLERS and INJECTABLES are one of our most requested anti aging, age defying treatments today…for men and women, because they offer quick results with minimal downtime. However, there is some misleading information out there about what they can and cannot do. This false information causes much confusion, and I plan to address this in my next few blogs. Look for that next time.
My Best to You and Yours,
My last couple blogs focused on Body Reshaping and an overview of a few of the amazing tools I employ to achieve my patients’ goals. Body Sculpting, Refining, Reshaping and Body Contouring (interchangeable terms) is so popular among Baby Boomers, GenX and the Millennials today…thus the reason for my stayed focus on it. Body Reshaping is safe and effective…is used for various body areas…and it is here to stay.
Changing the size, profile or parameters of the anatomy and refining those areas is what Body Sculpting is all about. There are various methods used for achieving the “perfect body” or “body of your dreams.”
CAREFUL PLANNING is REQUIRED…
TO ACHIEVE YOUR MOST DESIRABLE RESULTS for BODY CONTOURING.
WHY PEOPLE CHOOSE TO HAVE BODY SCULPTING:
- To tighten loose skin after dramatic weight loss
- Restore a PrePregnancy Body after Childbirth
- Tighten up loose, saggy skin and remove excess fat pockets
- Eliminate unwelcome Cellulite and “dimples” it causes
- Be able to wear stylish clothing of your choice
- Sculpt a healthy, trim, firm and contoured body
- Achieve the “refined” body they’ve always wanted
- Restore self confidence and boost self esteem
- Look as fabulous and healthy as you feel!
WHEN IS A GOOD TIME TO HAVE BODY SCULPTING DONE? This is the most frequent questions I get from patients. MY ANSWER:
This answer will vary with each patient since no two people are the same. But, you should be in good general health, and at a stable weight…for at least three months before starting on your personalized treatment program. Continuing a healthy, active lifestyle and weight management is critical to enjoying your long term results.
THE GOAL OF ALL BODY SCULPTING/CONTOURING is to achieve balance and harmony for the entire body. Thus, treating the body “as a whole” and never as isolated parts.
Since, patients often choose multiple body areas for refining, a combination of treatments may be required to accomplish the desired goals.

Helping You Be Your Very Best,
NIP CELLULITE in the BUTTOCKS! ! Your buttocks are one of the favorite places for cellulite to call home.
