Decades of Beauty

We all age differently. This has led to new and more natural ways to customize facelifts.

If you’ve stared in the mirror and asked yourself, “where did my face go?” you can blame that loss of volume on dwindling collagen.

The best anti-ager you can use, hands down, is sunscreen with sunblock with a SPF of 30 or higher followed by a skin care regimen for your skin type. Even with vigilance, wrinkles will begin to appear, most of the time sooner than you think.

When is it time to begin using Botox® and fillers? It depends on each individual, their age and lifestyle and what kind of results they want to achieve.

There are three kinds of facial wrinkles which can determine the most effective treatment.

• Dynamic or mimic lines are caused by muscle movement. That includes the “11” frown lines, worry lines on the forehead and crows feet.

• Static line wrinkles are visible when your face is at rest.

• Gravitational folds are usually deeper and result from gravity and loss of volume like nasolabial folds that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth.

Botox® typically lasts for 3 to 4 months, the results may last longer if more units are used. It begins to work 3 to 4 days after the treatment and peaks at two weeks, when you get the maximum result.

Many think that the results are immediate, so have patience and time your treatments accordingly.
