When you look at your face, what do you think ages your appearance most? The lines and wrinkles? Sun damage or Discoloration? Sagging skin? Most of the time, it is a combination of all of these factors, but the NUMBER ONE CAUSE that contributes to looking older is– LOSS OF FULLNESS!
The cruelest irony of aging is with most people, your facial fat goes and your belly fat increases! When you think of a youthful faces, and you’ll most likely imagine a full face with rounded cheeks. Facial fat plays a large part in filling out the skin and keeps your face looking smooth and supple.
Of course, loss of fat is not the only factor in this equation. Lets not forget loss of collagen. Our facial appearance is also affected by the loss of muscle that accompanies the aging process. NOW WHAT DO WE DO??
The truth is many patients are seeking to improve the appearance of their face, not through stretching the skin tighter with a traditional facelift – but filling it from the inside. YOU have now entered the age of the liquid facelift.
By using cosmetic fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm or Radiesse, these synthetic formulated injectables can be used to smooth out your fine lines, helping to erase wrinkles and creases. The “liquid facelift” can restore facial volume and provides a degree of facial enhancement and age correction. With subtle lifting and correction, watch as your face returns to a much more youthful appearance.
You can also use cosmetic fillers to enhance the lips. Bring youth back to the hands and neck as well as the face. Most of the time these fillers are used with other injectables such as BOTOX, Dysport, Jeuveau or Xeomin.
