I’m not yet ready for a facelift; what are my options?
As time passes, our age shows in our skin. Often, the signs of aging are most noticeable in our faces. Gravity pulls on our tissue, our skin loosens and produces less elastin and collagen, and wrinkles and spots of discoloration and uneven texture form. All of these natural processes contribute to an aged appearance. Fortunately, there are many non-invasive options that can reverse the signs of aging and erase years from the face.
Dermal fillers are injectable products that can be placed under the skin in various locations to “fill in” wrinkles and fine lines and plump areas of the skin that may appear “hollowed out” due to the passing of time, such as the lips and cheeks and under the eyes. The overall effect of expertly placed dermal fillers is to smooth the skin, reversing wrinkles and drooping skin and restoring a young-looking fullness to the face.
Botox®® injections are used to prevent and reverse wrinkle formation in areas of the face that are prone to these lines. For instance, lines around the eyes and mouth can be eliminated with the use of Botox® injections, which prevent the muscle contractions that cause the formation of these lines.
A liquid facelift combines the placement of dermal fillers and Botox® injections with skin resurfacing and tightening treatments, for an overall total facial rejuvenation without surgery. Each liquid facelift is fully customized to the patient, addressing your exact concerns using the most effective combination of treatments.
Get Rid of Your Double Chin for Good with Kybella®
If you have a double-chin that you just can’t seem to get rid of, even with diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for Kybella®®, a state-of-the-art injectable treatment that can permanently reshape your jawline. Kybella® is the only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that can reduce “submental fullness,” or excessive fat under the chin.
Kybella® is a series of tiny injections that contain a naturally-occurring digestive acid called deoxycholic acid. When injected in precise locations under the chin and along the jawline, the acid destroys fat cells, which are broken down and reabsorbed by the body. Each treatment takes less than an hour to complete, and patients are thrilled with their results after even one session; some patients require a few sessions to achieve the facial profile that they desire. Best of all, as long as you maintain a relatively stable weight following your Kybella® treatments, you can rest assured that the fat will never return!
Change your silhouette with EMSculpt®
EMSculpt® is revolutionary non-invasive treatment that can transform problem areas of the body, building muscle and burning fat without requiring you to work out! EMSculpt® can help you to obtain a leaner, fitter appearance. The device is applied to difficult-to-tone areas such as the abdomen and buttocks; electromagnetic energy is then transmitted to create muscle contractions that are stronger than what you could achieve through exercise. A number of scientific studies show that your body will respond to the EMSculpt® treatment by building new muscle tissue, and fat cells are also destroyed by the electromagnetic energy as it passes through the tissue. The end result is a dramatic change to your shape, no surgery required!
