Welcome 2016 with a More Youthful You!
The New Year reflects the passing of time, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept time passing on your appearance. Signs of aging, such as facial lines, skin laxity and loss of facial volume, can be effectively treated with an assortment of injectable procedures. At SUBTLchanges skin rejuvenation clinic, part of Houston Center for Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of injectable formulations that can be customized to your specific aging concerns.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles are an inevitable part of getting older, but you don’t have to accept those facial creases without a fight. Greet 2016 with a smoother complexion, thanks to Botox and dermal fillers designed to reduce the appearance of those lines. Botox is particularly effective on lines around the brow and eyes that are often caused by repetitive facial expressions. Dermal fillers are the preferred treatment for creases in the lower portion of the face, around the nose, mouth and jawline.
Elastin and collagen are important components of the underlying skin structure that give skin its firm, supple quality. Over time, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, leading to a loss of skin firmness. When treated in its early stages, injectable treatments can be an effective way to restore firmness to the skin and create a smoother look overall. This treatment is particularly helpful along the jawline, where loose skin can lead to the appearance of jowls and a double chin.
Injectable treatments are not the only non-surgical method of addressing skin laxity today. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes targeted ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin around the eyes and under the neck and chin. This procedure can be performed in 60-90 minutes, depending on the specific area to be treated, and there is no downtime afterward. Ultherapy typically offers full results after a single treatment session. Ultherapy can be performed alone or in conjunction with injectable treatments to maximize results.
Loss of Facial Volume
Collagen depletion can also lead to loss of facial volume in areas like the cheeks, under the eyes and along the jawline, creating a worn, aged appearance. Volume can also be lost around the mouth and lips, making you look perpetually angry or uptight. Smoother formulations of injectable fillers can also be used in these areas to restore youthful volume and a younger facial profile. Thinning lips can also be plumped up to turn back the clock on your pout.
If the looming New Year is reminding you that the years are continuing to pass, now is the time to take a stand against the effects of aging on your appearance. With a variety of dermal filler formulations to choose from, as well as neuromodulators like Botox, our staff can help you reverse those telltale signs of aging and restore a more youthful look.
