A common sentence we hear frequently is, "It's too late." False! It's never too late to do something for yourself or to implement treatments to boost your confidence and repair years of damage. Although this may require more intervention and a step-by-step process of multiple treatments, we are more than happy to guide you through it.
For concerns such as wrinkles & skin laxity, we typically are looking at starting with filler. Juvederm fillers can be used to restore volume loss in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and lips. Each decade, our face loses about a full tube's worth of natural volume, so you will likely require more product at this time in combination with some laser resurfacing or skin tightening. These treatments are a great alternative, though, to surgical options such as face lifts and implants. Fillers are a temporary, minimally-invasive injectable made of hyaluronic acid--a natural sugar the body produces, making it very safe for use. For patients who wish to restore volume loss with the more affordable, less invasive route, this will be best for you.
Filler will restore the volume loss underneath the skin, but we still may want to still tighten. This is where Microneedling or JuVaShape is going to be your best friend! Microneedling stimulates the collagen and elastin your body is no longer producing on its own, which triggers the skin to quickly heal itself and revitalize a smoother, tighter, healthier skin texture. JuVaShape works to flush cellulite, minimally burn fat and tighten skin of the neck and body using high temperatures of heat with radio frequency.
Sun spots, also known as age spots, are one of the most visible forms of aging on the face, neck, chest, and hands. For this, we can use laser resurfacing, such as Pico or Erbium, or we can also use a color-correcting treatment such as IPL to lighten freckles and improve background redness and an uneven skin tone. For most patients, a combination will be best.
