This is a question our patients ask frequently: “I’m not ready for surgery, what do you recommend to make me look younger?”
Patients want to know how to look younger without the complications and risks accompanied with major surgeries such as facelifts. Read below for our favorite results-proven treatments for the aging face.
1. LASER RESURFACING
Lasers are a wonderful treatment modality for people who want to improve sun damage, age spots, dark spots, and acne scars. Energy from the laser targets damaged skin and allows the formation of brighter, clearer skin. Our office uses the latest technology when it comes to fractional laser resurfacing. Our lasers provide the latest technology and are customized to skin type, therefore maximizing results and minimizing complications.
2. DERMAL FILLERS
There are various hyaluronic acid fillers on the market which are a great choice for people who want to fill in lines and wrinkles and restore lost volume to areas such as the cheeks and chin. The fillers are each indicated for a specific part of the face and are chosen carefully by your physician based on your cosmetic needs. Fillers are fantastic because they produce immediate results and erase the wrinkles and lines instantaneously. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the human body. It is gradually metabolized by the body, and is not permanent. Fillers are a minimally painful, IMMEDIATE cosmetic fix for deep or shallow wrinkles. Our new favorite filler is Restylane Lyft—this filler is requested most by our patients and for good reason—its results are dramatic and can be described as an instant ‘liquid facelift’.
Botox has been around for over 20 years. It is a fantastic way to soften lines and prevent wrinkles from deepening with time. The results can be seen in 3-5 days and injections are minimally painful. Injections of Botox can be targeted by your experienced physician to help soften and minimize lines in most places on the face, such as the forehead, between the brows, around the eyes, neck, and chin.
4. DAILY SKINCARE with the RIGHT products. Ask us for our highly effective PRESCRIPTIVE strength products, which are tested and FDA regulated for true results when it comes to battling the signs of aging.
Often, over the counter products are not as effective, and have not been tested by the FDA or a regulatory organization to prove they work. If you’re spending money on skincare products, those from department stores are not going to produce guaranteed results, whereas prescriptive strength products are FDA tested and regulated for years to ensure they produce the results you expect from anti-aging products.
NOTE: Always look for a board-certified physician’s office when seeking anti-aging treatments. Our office has a board-certified physician as the injector and administrator of ALL cosmetic services. Our board-certified physician specializes in rejuvenating the aging face non-surgically. We provide multiple levels of anti-aging treatment modalities, which are fast, minimally painful, and effective.
