The New Generation of Anti-Aging Products
As we grow older, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity as a result of sun exposure, as well as many years of facial muscle movement. The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful begin to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, or facial creases over the areas where muscle movement occurs.
Today, cosmetic specalists like Dr. Azizzadeh are making the most of a new generation of volumizing fillers. The increased availability of non-surgical treatments, in combination with the expertise of Dr. Azizzadeh, allows him to rencontour patients’ faces more effectively, while at the same time holding back the signs of aging.
New and improved non-surgical treatments like Laviv, hyaluronic acids (Juvederm/Restylane), and neurotoxins (Botox/Dysport) have made anti-aging treatments more accessible, and resulted in an increase in the number of consumers across the world looking to beat lines and wrinkles with a non-surgical cosmetic solution.
Dermal fillers can help fill in lines and creases, as well as temporarily restore a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. When injected beneath the skin, these wrinkle fillers plum up creased and sunken areas of the face. They can also add fullness to the lips and cheeks. Injectable fillers can be used alone, or in conjunction with a resurfacing procedure, such as laser treatment, or a recontouring procedure, such as a facelift.
One of the newer treatment options is Laviv, which uses an individual’s own skin cells to create a filler that can be used to plump out small lines on the face.
Hyaluronic acids, like Juvederm, meanwhile, are used to smooth away wrinkles, while neuromodulators, such as Botox, are used to prevent fine lines and wrinkles from appearing by relaxing contracted facial muscles. Both fillers and toxins are in high demand at the CENTER.
While there are plenty of benefits with dermal fillers and Botox, please note that they are not intended to treat severe surface wrinkles on the face, such as vertical lipstick lines that sometimes form around the mouth. While injectables are sometimes used in conjunction with facial surgery procedures, know that injectables alone cannot change facial contour the way surgery can.
