The visible signs of facial aging may be the result of sun exposure, hereditary, or lifestyle. One of the earliest signs of aging is a loss of facial fullness and the development of expression lines — wrinkles that appear as a result of the repeated movement of facial muscles. Softening of these facial lines and creases, and the restoration of volume and fullness in the face can often be achieved non-surgically through treatment with FDA approved cosmetic injectables.
If you wish to enhance or restore facial contours or to reduce the appearance of lines and creases, injection therapy with soft tissue fillers may be right for you. Injectable fillers can plump thin lips and restore fullness to other facial tissue, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and in some cases, improve the appearance of recessed scars. The result is a smoother, fuller and more youthful facial appearance.
Botox®, Hyaluronic acid (Restylane/Juvederm), and Autologous Fat Transfer are popular non-surgical techniques for treating wrinkles and facial lines. Most patients are pleased with the results of these minimally invasive procedures.
Skin Care Treatments
The care and proper treatment of your skin is of utmost importance to your healthy appearance. You must treat your skin as you would care for a new car or fine leather. Skin which is exposed to excessive drying, sun, radiation damage, and smoking, is only made worse with the additions of poor diet and stress. You have only one body and one life, so take good care of nature’s gifts.
Your appearance is defined by many features, most prominently the appearance of your skin. Sun, skin disorders, aging, and even hereditary can all contribute to visible irregularities in facial skin and to skin anywhere on the body. If you wish to improve the appearance of your skin, skin rejuvenation or resurfacing may be right for you. Skin rejuvenation can be achieved in a number of ways, ranging from antioxidant-based skin care, chemical exfoliates or peels, or other non-ablative methods. The goal is a smoother, clearer, and more youthful appearance to your skin.
With exposure to the sun, there is a significant increase in the risk and incidence of skin cancer. Even without a history of frequent sun exposure, new or existing skin lesions that show a change in their nature should be expeditiously examination by a physician. Particularly concerning changes include bleeding, color changes, or growth changes. The same is true with current moles. Early detection of skin cancer is associated with the best treatment outcomes.
