The aging process in inevitable. With aging the facial topography is affected due to loss of bones, fat pads and muscles.
The skin envelop becomes thinner due to loss of collagen, it is covered with brown spots and or wrinkles due to sun damage and it is sunken in appearance due to volume loss from all the above structures.
See the progression of aging from daughter to mother and grandmother. Note the change in facial structure: Under Eye bags or hollow, nasal labial folds, sunken cheeks/temples, thinning lips, and loss of jaw line definition.
The Aesthetic Plan
The aesthetic plan takes into account all these changes and use a combination of treatments from lasers, toxins and fillers to even out skin tone, reduce wrinkle and volumize the face. The goal is to bring back the youthful fullness of a younger face WITHOUT looking distorted, overfilled or “alien“like. How much correction is needed will depend on how much “aging” or volume loss has occurred in the individual.
In order to even out skin tone, reduce blemishes, decrease pigmentation and minimize wrinkles we recommend treatment such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, photofacial, laser genesis, dermaneedling with or without PRP or fractional CO2.
For skin tightening Ulthera will help to reduce under neck laxity while Kybella will reduce under neck fat deposit.
If volume loss has occurred then a combination of Sculptra and fillers (Restylane L, Lyft, Silk, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Voluma and Bellafill) are used to volumize the face and lips.
We lose an average of 3-5ml of volume a year after the age of 30. Therefore we will ALWAYS need volume filling as we are replacing what is loss yearly. Think of the face as a pillow. The skin is the pillow case which needs to be clean and wrinkle free, it should have enough “stuffing” in it to look soft & natural. Not too much and Not too little.
