Aging doesn't have to be something we're afraid of--but it also can be made a much more graceful process. Cosmetic care and treatment can help slow down the aging of the skin without implementing anything drastic.
By this time in life, we've experienced enough to leave some etched lines, sun spots, and even a break down in some facial volume. Your younger years were filled with beloved sculpted cheeks, but maybe now the apples of your cheeks are feeling flat and lifeless. Maybe the laugh lines around your mouth are feeling more like a frown. Every patient feels differently about this process occurring, and we will never be the ones to tell you whether or not to be self-conscious--if it doesn't bother you, don't make it a bother. But if it does--that's exactly what we're here for. We want to provide the little boosts of treatment you need to feel restored and revitalized, allowing your aging to feel as sophisticated as possible.
We most commonly will be using Botox to soften any current lines of the upper face and to prevent them from deepening any further. We can then resurface and rejuvenate the texture or any damage to the skin with laser and light therapy. Laser resurfacing or microneedling will work to buff and smooth those etched in lines, encouraging healthier, more hydrated skin to surface. We can also use filler to restore that volume loss in the cheeks, lift any jowls beginning to occur, and rehydrate underneath the laugh lines around the mouth. We can also add a touch of Juvederm Volbella to the lips to cushion pucker lines or plump the lips.
If you aren't using one already, now is the time to implement some kind of retinoid product, such as over-the-counter retinol or a prescription of Tretinoin. This involves a high concentration of Vitamin A to strengthen the skin barrier and works as a topical skin repair product for mild scarring and fine lines. It is essentially the best anti-wrinkle cream that can be used.
