Want a younger-looking face–without a facelift?
Have you started to notice the telltale signs of facial aging? Wish your face could look younger, but don’t want the downtime or expense of surgery? Consider what Radiesse and Botox can do for you.
Radiesse filler adds youthful fullness
“In the last few years, I was starting to get ‘tear trough’ lines under my eyes that made me look really tired,” recalls Barbara, age 59. “When I looked in the mirror, I could see my cheeks were starting to look a bit ‘sunken’ and hollow. And my face was losing fullness.”
Dr. Rappaport used Radiesse—a semi-permanent facial filler—to smooth out the tear trough lines under Barbara’s eyes and plump up her
cheeks. “Radiesse gave Barbara the effect of a non-surgical mid-face lift,” he says.
“The loss of volume in the mid-face is caused by the effect of
gravity and a decrease in the skin’s elasticity,” Dr. Rappaport
explains. “Radiesse can add fullness to the mid-face and make it look years younger.”
Botox® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles
Barbara was also concerned about lines and wrinkles around her eyes and between her eyebrows. “I had a deep line between my eyebrows from frowning and squinting,” she recalls.
“Some wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and vertical lines between the eyebrows, are the result of repetitive muscle action,” Dr. Rappaport explains. “Botox works by relaxing the specific muscles that cause
“In some cases, I might add a little bit of filler to help fill in a deep crease in the brow. The Botox relaxes the muscle; the filler smoothes the crease caused by repetitive muscle action.”
‘I look younger now than 4 years ago!’
“Radiesse has smoothed out my tear troughs, filled out my cheekbone area and given my face a younger, fuller appearance,” says Barbara. “And Botox has relaxed my crow’s feet and the crease between
“I love my new look!” she says. “These are subtle changes, but I can really tell the difference. And there was absolutely no surgery involved. My friends tell me I look refreshed. When I look in the mirror now, I look younger than I did four years ago!”
“There’s a real difference when you have your injectables done by a skilled physician,” says Dr. Rappaport. “My knowledge of anatomy and appreciation of aesthetics allow me to give you a very natural look. Youwant some personality on your face, not the ‘frozen’ or ‘plastic’ look you might see when a person is treated by a less-skilled injector.”
