Injectables for facial aging include fillers which soften and enhance contours, Cosmetic Botox® which reduces unwanted dynamic wrinkles, and micropigmentation which enhances brows, eyelids and lips.
- Juvederm ® fillers enhance the aging contours of the face with a natural, safe, product normally found in the our tissues.
- Micropigmentation for eyeliner, brows, and lips restores the definition that we lose with the aging process.
- Botox ® injections improve the frown lines and crows’ feet and other unwanted dynamic wrinkles of the face.
Effects of Facial Aging:
Facial aging brings wrinkles, deflated cheeks (loss of volume), thin lips, and loss of definition of facial features. Once attractive eyes, brows and lips recede into oblivion. Solutions to these aesthetic concerns are available for you – with NO DOWN TIME. Botox®, Fillers and micropigmentation have low risk, high satisfaction, and no down time while providing beautiful improvements in facial appearance. Botox®, fillers, and micropigmentation address these aging changes.
Cosmetic Botox ® –
Botox® eliminates unwanted dynamic wrinkles. Small to moderate doses in appropriate locations makes a huge difference in overall appearance. Wipe out the “11” lines and crows’ feet wrinkles with cosmetic Botox® injection for a rejuvenated look. Results may extend out to four or more months.
Fillers such as Juvederm® Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, and Voluma XC restore volume lost as a result of facial fat atrophy and descent of the cheeks with gravity. Hyaluronic acid fillers are very well-tolerated, and the viscous Voluma XC lasts as long as 2 years. Injection of fillers by an expert achieves a natural, youthful contour of lips, midface and lower face by reducing the tear trough and dark circles, marionette lines, and other wrinkles. The contour of the face and dark circles improve with injection over the cheek bone. Experience is an important factor in achieving desired results. An injector familiar with facial anatomy, and experienced with filler injection avoids an over-filled, unnatural appearance. Fillers dramatically reduce the deflation seen in facial aging.
Micropigmentation (permanent makeup) for eyeliner, lip color, and eyebrows restores the youthful definition of facial structures that is lost with facial aging. I use a hand applicator to place the pigment in the skin – rather than an automated device – after numbing with a topical anesthetic. This technique produces a natural appearance of brows, eyeliner, and lips, not a harsh appearance you might see with some techniques. Color selection based on natural facial skin tones and hair color, as well as the preferences of the individual provides the best results. We discuss the shape and thickness of the eyebrows, liner and lips in order to achieve your preferences.
These procedures have no down time and nearly immediate improvement in appearance of facial aging. Botox® effects occur a few days after treatment. Some swelling occurs with fillers, and micropigmentation, but dissipates rapidly over 1-2 days. I discuss with you the risks, benefits and alternatives so that you will be aware of any potential unwanted effects. Minimal risk is involved when proper techniques are used by an experienced physician. The benefits are wonderful rejuvenation of your natural features!
