If it seems your face is changing shape, you're right! What's going on?
Facial contours are impacted by aging, gravity, genetics, and more. If you're in your 50s, you can usually readily notice the changes. Evidence of skin laxity, volume loss, creases, and wrinkles can begin in your 30s, becoming more pronounced and evident as time passes.
Steps to slow down these changes, such as proper skin care, daily use of sunscreen, and healthy lifestyle choices can help slow the process. Age happens, and despite all efforts, we all will experience changes in skin firmness and a loss of facial volume over time.
But...there are safe, non-invasive, and effective ways to slow down the inevitable and give your face some structural advantages. Look at these:
Non-Surgical Skin Rejuvenation
- Wrinkle Relaxers. BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin®, and Dysport® can be used to smooth crow’s feet and frown lines and even slim a widened jawline from muscle overuse. Wrinkle relaxers can also smooth pebbly chin and reduce the appearance of neck bands
- Dermal Fillers. Fillers are used to add or restore volume to cheeks, hollows under the eye, and refill temples. Altering the undesired appearance of jowls is often a simple addition of judiciously placed filler. Fillers can also erase fine lines and deep wrinkles, and improve the shape and symmetry of the lips
- Skin Tightening. Radiofrequency and ultrasound tighten loose skin throughout the face and even firm up crepey eyelids, while treatments including Kybella® and CoolMini™ focus exclusively on eliminating double chin
In addition to these options, we offer skin rejuvenation with microneedling, chemical peels, and facials. These treatments can help to improve skin texture, reduce redness, and create a more youthful glow. Some of these treatments can also diminish or remove age and sunspots, reduce the appearance of scars, and address pigmentation irregularities. Skin clarity and reflection reduce the focus on contour loss as well.
