Regardless of your age, unwanted fat, wrinkles, lines, spots, and sagging skin can appear on our faces or bodies making us feel self-conscious or embarrassed about our appearance. Multiple factors are to blame for these changes.
• Excess sun exposure or other harmful rays is one of the most common factors that break down skin cells and cause premature aging.
• Hormones, specifically changes in estrogen levels cause wrinkles, melasma, and unwanted fat deposits around our eyes and under our chin.
• Medications can impact skin health causing premature aging.
• Muscles used in facial expressions can leave us with unwanted lines like crows feet or smile lines.
• Genetic Facial Structure - recessed chins and under chin fat deposits.
Tremendous advancements in science and medical aesthetics have resulted in many choices to soften and correct these changes non-surgically. Injectable therapy is one example of new and effective options.
FDA approved injectables are safe and effective treatments for wrinkles, folds, and volume loss. Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are used to soften vertical and horizontal forehead lines, lip lines, as well as crow’s feet around the eyes. Fillers, such as Belotero, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Voluma, are a wonderful option to plump lips, smooth folds, and fine line, and add volume in the cheeks.
Now, there is a new FDA-approved injectable treatment we are offering called Kybella. This non-surgical treatment improves our chin contours and help remove unwanted fat. The treatment is administered as a simple series of injections over a period of weeks to months to help minimize or eliminate unwanted fat from the neck and chin area. Kybella uses a naturally occurring molecule in the body that is known to break down localized area of fat. It’s an excellent option for patients who have good skin elasticity yet troubling fat under their chin.
While non-surgical options are preferred by many people, at some point gravitational changes define when surgery is the only way to accomplish rejuvenation goals. When the skin and muscles on your face or body are sagging beyond what can be corrected with a laser or other type of therapy, I will use the most state of the art surgical options to restore youth to skin and muscles. Surgical treatments are often followed up with advanced laser treatments to further refine skin and enhance the quality and skin tone. The combinations, timing, and treatments are unique and customized for each individual to provide optimal and natural results. Your Natural Best® is easier to achieve than you think.
