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.

Botox® gradually wears off over the next few months and frown lines and wrinkles relax into a more rested appearance.

The number of units, not the volume injected, is the correlation with the effectiveness of your injection.

Botox® can be used for much more than reducing those “11” lines between your eyes. A skilled plastic surgeon can subtly shift the shape of your eyes, and lift your eyebrow enough to give you a relaxed, bright-eyed natural look.

Scheduling your Botox® treatment a few days before a cut and color can give you a mini-makeover that will have you looking like you had a weekend away.

 

Fill ‘Er Up

Fillers can plump your lips, enhance contours, soften wrinkles and creases and give you a rested and more youthful look. Most fillers last between 6 to 18 months, depending on the thickness of the filler and how deeply it’s injected.

Loss of facial volume can be more impactful than wrinkles and in the hands of a skilled plastic surgeon, fillers create a liquid facelift.
