Noninvasive Facelift

Noninvasive Facelifts are possible in this day in age.

When we see a patient who has consulted us for generalized facial aging, there are typically several aspects that we want to target.

The first step is to address the dynamic muscular movement contributing to the wrinkle.  We do this with a neuromodulator such as Botox.  There are several different neuromodulators on the market such as Dysport (conversion ration is 2.5 to 3 units of Dysport to 1 unit of Botox) and Xeomin (conversion ratio of 1.3 units of Xeomin to 1 unit of Botox).  By relaxing the muscular movement, the further development of static lines (or lines at rest) minimizes.  While neuromodulators do wonders with the lines during movement, the more permanent lines (static lines) may need additional filler or laser to help smoothen out.

Patients also may come in with photodamage (brown sun spots or lentigenes) or broken blood vessels.  This adds to the entire aspect of facial aging.  One to three  IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments can clean away the areas of pigmentation to reveal more youthful color tones to the skin.  When there is laxity, skin tightening devices such as radiofrequency and fractional ablative or nonablative lasers can help stimulate collagen.

Finally, we have to look for areas of volume loss.  This, perhaps, can make the largest visual impact on aging.  As we lose volume from our face, we notice that our skin sags and there is hollowing in key areas such as the lateral cheek area and midface.  This contributes to the tired look that patients complain about.

Utilizing one tool in our toolbox, does help, but the combination of neuromodulators/fillers and lasers can make a profound difference and actually turn back time!

Here is a patient who is four years post her baseline photo and looks younger and healthier 4 years later with the noninvasive Facelift!

Just Laser It Podcast. Transcript from Episode #2

The world of lasers for the skin can be confusing and overwhelming with new treatments popping up daily. What works? What doesn't? And a little clarity, please, on what these "energy based devices" can and cannot do. This podcast is for you!

RHA Filler and Restylane Expression (XpresHAn) Technology

As filler companies continue to gain information on what patients want and what characteristics a filler should have, newer, purer fillers are coming to the market. One such filler is RHA (resilient hyaluronic acid) which mimics facial movement.

PDO Threadlift

What is a PDO threadlift? PDO threads can either be lifting threads or smooth threads. Lifting threads help to reposition the fat pads and lift up on the cheek area and jowl area. They are not a facelift but can lift greater than filler alone.

Lip Filler

Filler to the lips can bring back the volume that is lost and can smoothen the appearance of the lips

Wintertime Treatment to Rejuvenate the Skin

Why I love IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) to target the brown benign sun spots and for capillaries on the face. This is my go to for generalized Photodamage and for my Rosacea Patients.
