Cheek to Cheek

You may not notice it right away, but cheeks tend to flatten as you get older. It’s typically a less obvious sign of aging, but if you see a change in contour, it could be time for an easy fix.

 

Sometimes, the natural curve of your cheek is lost, causing your skin to droop and your profile to lose definition. The shape of your cheeks has a huge impact on the look of your entire face. So, if you’re not happy with any changes to your cheek area, you may not feel so terrific in general. With a simple dermal filler, we can restore youthful fullness, in a natural and subtle way.

 

Previously, aging cheeks were corrected with invasive traditional surgery that tightened the overlying skin and lifted the deeper soft tissues. Now, such extensive procedures are not at all necessary. Voluma XC, an injectable filler, can produce the same result, providing a lift that is free of incisions, anesthesia and recuperation time.

 

Juvederm Voluma XC is an FDA-approved filler that instantly adds natural-looking volume to the cheeks. It is made from a naturally occurring complex sugar, and studies have shown that results may last as long as two years after treatment.

 

So, if your facial silhouette seems different to you, come talk with me to see what we can do. Call our office today for a complimentary consultation.

The Liquid Facelift: Tiny Time Commitment, Big-Time Results

With school doors about to shut for the summer, you may be feeling the squeeze on your typical routine. Many parents experience an extra juggle when kids are home, trying to balance so many responsibilities while adapting to the summer schedule. But there’s no reason that your personal beauty regimen has to hit the back burner in the process.

 

This time of year is particularly opportune for our quick treatments that provide instant results. One that hits the mark is The Liquid Facelift.

 

We all love our collagen and elastin. But as we age, these structural proteins start to dwindle, and as they do, our faces lose their volume and bounce. Worse, wrinkles, lines and folds form, too, since the support behind the skin is no longer there to keep it stretched and firm.

 

We can lift and contour your facial features and restore your natural fullness in the places where you need it. Using advanced dermal fillers such as VolumaRestylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne and Radiesse, we provide a pain-free nonsurgical “liquid facelift” that can reduce wrinkles, lines and folds, create a more rested and fresh look, and return your face to its curved former self. And we can do it quickly and safely. The fillers that we use are made from substances that your body produces naturally.

 

You may want to “lift” the entire face, or you may want to target specific spots, such as bags under the eyes, marionette lines, sagging eye lids, jowls and flattened cheeks. We can even disguise bumps on the nose, a method that will keep you out of the operating room and free of anesthesia, recuperation and downtime.

 

For more information about this quick treatment and its immediate results, call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation.

The Skin Cycle: What You Can Expect, Decade by Decade

Your skin has a natural plan. With each year that passes, it undergoes assorted stressors, some that it has experienced before and some that are brand new. And it reacts to these changing stimuli in different ways, subtle and not-so. Unfortunately, while you may not feel any older, your skin has another story to tell. Aging plays tricks on its delicate composition. But do not despair–you have strategies at your disposal for warding off the first signs of attack. The trick: know what’s coming and take as many precautions as possible.

 

Here is what you can expect:

 

In Your 20s and 30s: Get ready. Hormonal changes may happen during this time, causing adult acne. We can treat it, though, with our Pulsed Dye Laser. Also, you may notice hints of wrinkles (yes, they begin early) and pigmentation. Botox and Dysport will help minimize lines, keeping them from setting and deepening. Catching them early is more effective than waiting until they are extreme. Fraxel DUAL and IPL will help reduce discoloration, brown spots and freckling.

 

In Your 40s: Your skin may begin to lose its luster, appearing dull and rough. Also, age spots may appear since the skin can’t repair itself as quickly or as completely as it used to. You may notice, too, that your skin doesn’t glow as much, since skin cell shedding begins to slow down. But, we can brighten and smooth out your skin with Clear+BrilliantFraxel DUAL and Fraxel Repair laser treatments. Your skin tone will look even, and wrinkles and pores will diminish. During your 40s, wrinkles may be deeper than they were before. Dermal fillers such as Restylane, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, Restylane LyftRestylane SilkVolumaJuvedermBelotero and Radiesse, and neurotoxins, such as Botox and Dysport, are effective in reducing the appearance of these lines and folds.

 

In Your 50s and 60s: Subtle lines may have turned into deep wrinkles and previously taut skin may have begun to sag. Declining collagen and elastin levels cause your skin to become thinner and more fragile. As the underlying skin structure is less supported, the skin falls down and droops. We have many treatments, such as Infini, that can work wonders to resurface skin and stimulate collagen production, which will help lift up and plump your skin, nonsurgically. The treatments will also help to brighten and lighten any discoloration caused by sun exposure or simple aging.

 

At all times of your life, remember to do what you can to preserve your skin’s natural beauty. Wear plenty of sunscreen (and not only in the summer), avoid the sun as much as possible, steer clear of smoking and cleanse and moisturize often.

Not many people are happy about lines, wrinkles, sagging skin or a tired appearance. Among the top nonsurgical anti-aging treatments, the Liquid Facelift can offer instant results for these concerns, plumping up your droopy spots and restoring a youthful contour to your face.

 

With injectable fillers, we can take years off of your appearance. Targeting your temples, brows, upper eyelids, under-eye areas, cheeks, mouth corners and jowls, we can help to erase the signs of aging, naturally and easily. With expert precision and careful attention to your facial anatomy, we’ll help you look as young and refreshed as possible. Your recovery time will be minimal, too.

 

Here is how we do it:

Getting Cheeky

Though it’s often a less obvious sign of aging, sagging and flattening cheeks can concern many of you. With time, you may lose the natural curve of your cheek, causing your skin to droop and your profile to lose definition. The shape of your cheeks has a huge impact on the look of your entire face. So, if you’re not happy with them, you may not feel so terrific in general. With a simple dermal filler, we can restore youthful fullness, in a natural and subtle way.

 

Previously, aging cheeks were corrected with invasive traditional surgery that tightened the overlying skin and lifted the deeper soft tissues. Now, Voluma XC, an injectable filler, can produce the same result, providing a lift that is free of incisions, anesthesia and recuperation time.

 

Juvederm Voluma XC is an FDA-approved filler that instantly adds natural-looking volume to the cheeks. It is made from a naturally occurring complex sugar, and studies have shown that results may last as long as two years after treatment. The next time you come in, be sure to ask me about how it might work for you.

Your Pre-Holiday Beauty Boost

When the calendar flips to November, the holidays aren’t far behind. It’s the season for looking your best, and dramatic results are possible, even in just a few weeks.

 

There is still time for many quick in-and-out treatments that will make all the difference in your appearance. Instantly, you’ll look fresh and rested, and you’ll feel invigorated, too…just the right recipe for the holiday season.

 

Here are a few suggestions for the upcoming weeks…

 

Try a nonsurgical mini facelift that will tighten skin and boost collagen production. With Thermage CPTwe can treat the skin on the eyelids, under-eye areas, abdomen, arms, legs and sagging buttocks. It’s the most effective lift treatment for a multitude of concerns, and the results are dramatic. Or, you can try an Exilis Ultra 360 treatment, which tightens, firms and tones loose and sagging skin and reshapes and melts stubborn fatty deposits anywhere on your face and body. Popular areas treated with Exilis include the face, jowls, neck, “love handles,” “bra fat,” abdomen, thighs, hips and buttocks.

 

Minimize lines and boost volume in your lips with Restylane Kysse, the latest filler for adding shape and definition to your mouth area.

 

Reduce wrinkles and tighten skin with Infini, a high intensity focused radiofrequency treatment that’s also terrific for minimizing acne scarring.

 

Restore facial volume with dermal fillers such as VolumaRadiesse and Restylane Lyft. These will reduce hollowness and diminish lines that have formed with age.

 

Smooth out forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet with Botox or Dysport.

 

Fill in smile lines, marionette lines or nasolabial folds (lines that stretch from the outer edge of the nostrils to the outer tip of the lips) with Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, JuvedermRestylane or Radiesse.

 

All of these quick treatments are nonsurgical, requiring no anesthesia or downtime. You can be back in full swing immediately, looking younger and feeling that way, too.

 

Call our offices this week to schedule a pre-holiday appointment.

 

See you soon.

Tracking Changes In Your Skin

It seems that summer just began and now, Labor Day is around the corner. The time goes quickly, and while you may not feel any older, your skin has another story to tell. Aging plays tricks on the delicate composition of your skin. The best way to ward off the signs of stress is to know what is ahead and take as many precautions as possible.

Midsummer’s Day Dream

Close your eyes and think of one thing about your appearance that you’d like to change. I bet that there is something, since most everybody has a wish list of some kind. The exciting news is that your day dream can probably be a reality.

 

Whether it is the hollowing of your cheeks that has occurred in the last year or so, or the double chin that persists despite your highly toned body, or those pockets of fat that just won’t go away despite your dieting and exercise, we have solutions that will fulfill your wishes for how you want to look.

 

Not too long ago, you couldn’t fill lost volume with RestylaneJuvederm or Voluma. Or minimize submental fat under your chin with Kybella or eradicate actual fat cells with SmartLipo Triplex. In recent years, cosmetic treatments have given you the opportunity to restore your youthful appearance, appear rested and refreshed and feel simply great about yourself.

 

So, as summer hits its stride, why not dream a little? It’s a great season to wish for what you want.

 

Call our office today to schedule a complimentary consultation. We’ll talk about your specific wants and desires and help plan a course to satisfy them as best we can.

 

Meantime, remember the sunscreen.
