If you have resolved to feel better about your appearance this year, change can come quicker than you may imagine. Here, we want to point out a few ways in which we can help you look like your best self in as little as thirty minutes.
Fast Fixes for the Signs of Aging
There are several ways to address the signs of facial aging. Some of the most popular approaches include injections of some sort. In our office near Philadelphia, we focus on first identifying areas of concern. Facial aging doesn’t just include the development of lines and wrinkles. To truly rejuvenate the face, it is necessary to look at the bigger picture.
Often, what lies behind facial aging is a degree of atrophy. The fatty tissue beneath the skin starts to deteriorate at some point, and collagen fibers lose their resiliency to hold tissue in place. Everything starts to drop and droop. Fortunately, injectables can handle most of the problems that relate to the change in facial structure.
•Botox can be used around the eye to reduce small wrinkles and also to lift the brow.
•Botox can also be used around the mouth to upturn the corners of the lips.
•Dermal fillers placed at the upper cheek can reduce or completely eliminate undereye bags and dark circles.
•Dermal fillers are routinely used around the nose and mouth to diminish line and creases caused by smiling and other facial expressions.
•Dermal fillers can lift jowls by increasing the contouring in the cheek area.
Got a Little More Time?
Cosmetic surgery can achieve beautiful results when conducted by a board-certified plastic surgeon. Procedures that beautifully refresh the face without more than a week to two weeks of downtime include:
•Blepharoplasty eyelid rejuvenation can focus on upper or lower eyelids for long-lasting correction of undereye bags, hooding, and a generally fatigued appearance.
•Facelift surgery is customized to reposition tissue across bony structure for better contouring and smoother skin.
•Fat grafting is a minimally invasive technique that harvests fat cells from one area of the body to naturally restore volume in areas such as the cheeks and temples.
