When spring is in the air, everything feels new and fresh and vibrant. Spring has a way of making us want to feel new and fresh and vibrant, too. It is difficult to feel this way when the reflection that greets us every day tells a different story. Of course, there is no way to completely avoid the appearance of aging. To grow older is not something to dread. It is, however, something that many of our patients want to manage. Here, we point out a few very easy ways you can begin to do this right now.
A Liquid Lift
We talk a lot about dermal fillers and Botox, but we don’t often go in depth about how injectables can give the face an all-over lift without the downtime and side effects of surgery. A liquid facelift begins with a thorough consultation and examination of facial structure. Our initial evaluation helps us identify the best ways to correct changes to that structure, such as restoring volume with a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. This treatment protocol introduces fillers at varying depths of tissue to achieve the most natural, most beautiful results.
This long-lasting treatment is similar to dermal fillers regarding filling out the face with natural volume. Where fat differs from fillers is in the way it integrates with existing tissue. When we take fat cells from the abdomen, thighs, or another part of the body, and inject the appropriate amount into the cheeks, hands, or another area, these cells become enmeshed. The combining of harvested cells and native cells creates the permanent volume that will only be affected by the natural aging process.
We are pleased to offer sophisticated tissue-tightening treatments in our Reno office. Both Ultherapy and ThermiTight have been beneficial additions to our menu of non-surgical services. The Ultherapy platform delivers thermal energy to the dermis through safe ultrasound waves. This treatment is one of the most efficient tissue-tightening procedures to reverse facial aging. Only one treatment is needed to promote ongoing collagen production that progressively improves the appearance of the brow line, the cheeks, the jawline and the neck. ThermiTight is an innovative radiofrequency treatment that applies controlled thermal energy beneath the skin. This technique immediately tightens collagen and invites remodeling that refreshes the face.
