Looking for affordable ways to rejuvenate your face?
In today’s economy, some people considering a facelift are choosing alternatives that don’t involve the expense—or downtime—of surgery.
Dr. Rappaport offers treatment options that will serve you well today and enhance your opportunities for the future—whether or not you have surgery.
Let us customize a skin care program for you
No matter what your age, proper skin care is an essential key to a radiant complexion. Basic skin care plans are useful if you’re:
- Not considering facial surgery;
- Preparing for a face lift; or
- Trying to maintain your improved appearance after a facelift.
Too young to be thinking about facial surgery? “Early skin care is important for younger people who have acne or want to avoid environmental skin damage or postpone the effects of gravity,”
says Dr. Rappaport.
At SUBTLchanges®, we offer a full array of clinical skin care products and services to cleanse, moisturize and exfoliate your skin.
Botox® Cosmetic gets rid of wrinkles caused by muscle action
Women—and men—are turning to lunchtime treatments of Botox® Cosmetic to rejuvenate their faces. “I first found out about Botox on the Internet,” recalls Mark, age 56.
Dr. Rappaport used Botox to treat Mark’s forehead creases, crow’s feet and the furrow between his eyebrows. “Botox works by relaxing wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle action,” he explains.
Facial fillers help restore youthful volume
“Once I had Botox, Dr. Rappaport and I started talking about doing something about the deepening lines from my nose to the corners of my mouth,” says Mark. “He treated me with Radiesse.”
“By volumizing the face, injectable fillers like Radiesse and Juvéderm can help stave off the effects of gravity—and thus the need for surgery,” Dr. Rappaport explains.
“I’m at the stage now where I’m thinking about having facial surgery,” Mark admits. “But meanwhile, I like the ease, convenience and recovery time of injectables. I can have a treatment and go right back to work.”
Unlike women, who typically talk with their friends about facial fillers and plastic surgery, men tend to keep it to themselves. “I don’t go around telling anybody I have injections,” says Mark. “It’s a guy thing,” he laughs. “It’s my business, and I want to look better on my terms.
His coworkers have noticed a difference, though. “People have told me I look more relaxed,” says Mark. “I know I look better.
“There’s a drive for competition in the workplace, and body image goes a long way,” Mark adds. “I don’t call that superficial or vain. Your appearance does make a statement and have an impact.”
