When it comes to looking younger, there is no denying that we are all interested in looking and feeling our best. We want to look natural and refreshed. Cosmetic plastic surgery is the gold standard in achieving superior results. When you look in the mirror and want to address some to the changes you see, there are a number of options, techniques, procedures, services and products you can use to improve upon your natural beauty. Whether you want to look your best for a special occasion or address some of the daily changes “Father Time” has gifted you, we have some tips to help you thru the maze of products, services and procedures available.
Your skin will be one of the first things to show signs of aging. Crows feet, wrinkles and fine lines are tell-tale signs of the aging process. Fortunately there are a number of things you can do to promote a youthful look. To begin, you will want to establish a routine of cleansing, toning, moisturizing, and exfoliating. Be sure to choose a system of products that has been personalized to your skin type. We recommend Dr. Zein Obagi’s “ZO” Skin Health Products. We also carry NeoStrata and Elta MD products to compliment our ZO skin care products. Our Esthetician can adapt a program to your skin type and needs.
If your eyes are the window to your soul, you don’t want them to communicate that you are in desperate need of a nap. To combat dark circles, consider using an excellent eye cream that lightens up the skin. You may also benefit from tear trough injectable fillers to diminish dark circles. Your sleeping habits may play into pre-mature aging. Sleeping on your face increases unwanted wrinkles and crows feet. Try to break your old habits and incorporate better sleep positions into your routine. If you have inherited puffy upper and or lower eyelids, droopy skin and can barely see your upper eyelids, the next step to a youthful appearance would be Eyelid Surgery. This is a simple office procedure that lasts for years and has excellent results which delivers a refreshed and natural youthful appearance. A surgical consult is required to see if you would be a good candidate for this procedure.
Of course you will want to ensure that your face is looking as young as you feel. That is why you should supplement your daily skin care program with regular facial treatments that exfoliate away dead skin, hydrate your skin an enhance your overall complexion. Options include facials, hydrating infusion treatments, microdermabrasion, facial peels, spot treatments, skin brightening and skin tightening procedures, either performed alone or in combinations, depending on your skin’s needs and your desired outcome. Once you start seeing wrinkle lines and overall changes to your face and neck, products such as Botox, Voluma, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Kybella, Radiesse Plus, and Belotero, can be used to fill in unwanted areas and reduce wrinkles lines around your forehead, crows feet, nose, cheeks, mouth, lips and chin areas. Some of these injectables can also add lost volume to enhance your cheekbones and lips, reduce fat along the neck and rejuvenate your overall appearance. Mini-Facelifts are the best and longest lasting option for treating facial rejuvenation, jowls, saggy skin of the face and neck, and so much more. A Mini-facelift can usually be performed in the office and it has excellent results. A consultation is recommended to see if you are a good candidate for any of the options listed here.
