It is such a struggle to maintain a youthful look. You try all the creams your friends told you about and you have even done those fillers that everyone talks about, but there are still fine lines and changes in texture that are not helped by over the counter creams.
As we age our volume decreases in our faces. The volume consists of muscle, fat, and bone that changes with time. The muscles hypertrophy in some areas and diminish in others. Through our life time we chew, clench, and smile millions of times. These actions cause the masseter muscles to get bigger. Our smiles and gestures cause lines that after a while become permanent. Loss of fat and muscle makes the mid face look gaunt.
Fillers are a good option to bring volume and stimulate collagen. The fillers continue to work even a month after they have been placed. Often times, they may not get rid of those stubborn lines above the lip, on the cheeks, and on the chin. If you have been a sun worshipper or smoker, then those lines may be even more tenacious.
Skin texture also changes too due to genetics, sun exposure and age. The sun spots begin to appear on the face, neck and hands. You have seen babies porcelain skin and unbelievable softness. Many of us wish to have that same feel. The Skin of babies and young children regenerates at a faster rate giving that beautiful softness. We can imitate that regeneration by resurfacing the skin using various techniques. The resurfacing procedures stimulates collagen and improves the tone, and feel of the skin. Treatments to resurface include: microneedling, chemical peels and laser therapies. Microneedling is done with a pen that uses very tiny needles to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenation in the skin. Chemical peels use different substances to remove the dead skin layers and stimulate new skin growth. Finally, laser therapies use heat to also stimulate collagen and increase healthy skin regrowth.
As we start our new year, we are offering more procedures to make you shine. Call for a consultation on microneedling, chemical peels and laser therapies.
