AGING SKIN 101

It's a part of life — our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Facial aging actually begins in your 20s, when skin firmness begins to decrease as a result of both internal (genetics and natural aging) and external (sun exposure, smoking, pollution, sleeping positions, etc.) factors.

RESURFACING

Chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing modify the surface of the skin to correct visible signs of sun damage, such as fine lines, irregular pigmentation and blemishes.

INJECTABLES

Toxins, traditional dermal fillers (hyaluronic acid) and collagen stimulators are injected into facial areas to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and restore facial contours.

SURGERY

A wide range of surgical procedures exist, like liposuction, face lifts and fat transfers, which are used to remove excess fat, lift severely sagging skin or fill facial hollows. These are the most invasive types of treatment.

WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?

Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. We use JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® brand filler products.

Subtle lift - Beauty breakthrough.

Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.

Patients reported looking up to 5 years younger at 6 months after treatment, as reported in the clinical study.

For moderate to severe wrinkle

Restylane® is an industry standard when it comes to smoothing out wrinkles and adding youthful volume to the face and lips.

Restylane® is formulated using hyaluronic acid—a sugar that is naturally present in your skin already. It is an all-natural compound that breaks down over time.

For facial volume

As we age, we loose volume in the face and cheeks. Restylane® Lyft is a natural cosmetic filler used to enhance and restore facial volume. Restylane® Lyft is also recommended for moderate to severe facial wrinkles, folds, and scars. Results are instant and last for approximately six months.

Like all members of the Restylane® family, Lyft is formulated using hyaluronic acid. In comparison to Restylane® Silk, Lyft uses larger particles of hyaluronic acid, which work deeper under the skin to provide superior volume.

For lips and mouth lines

With age, our lips also lose volume, becoming thinner and showing lines and creases. Restylane® Silk addresses loss of fullness around the mouth by adding exceptionally smooth volume. Silk can be used both to smooth creases and lip lines. It is also used for adding volume to the lips. Everyone's smile is unique, and Restylane® Silk is perfect for achieving result customized to patient specifications.

Natural haluronic acids are once again the active ingredient in Restylane® Silk. In comparison to Restylane® Lyft however, Silk uses smaller particles for an even smoother application in the mobile region of the mouth. Your aesthetician will determine which gel or combination of gels is best for you.
