Getting ready to see family and friends in the coming weeks? With the holidays just around the corner, many of our patients are getting ready to invest hours cleaning their homes and preparing a feast for incoming visitors. In addition to putting care into your home, be sure to practice self-care this holiday season. Non-surgical solutions like dermal fillers, Botox®, skin rejuvenation, and even laser treatments can all refresh your appearance in a crunch. Best of all, treatments are tailored to your specific needs.
Thinning Lips or Sunken Cheeks?
Shrinking lip size and sunken cheeks are common signs of aging that start slowly but quickly become noticeable and detract from your overall appearance. Luckily, dermal fillers come in many formulas and applications, making it a go-to procedure for many patients who want to improve their looks without spending too much time in the treatment chair.
When receiving dermal fillers, the consultation becomes the most important part of the procedure. During this initial visit, we’ll evaluate which of the many available injection options will best address your concerns. At Dr. Sayed’s office, options available include:
- Juvéderm® Volbella: Ideal for adding volume to lips and filling in fine lines near the mouth and around the eyes
- Juvéderm® Vollure: Perfect for treating nasolabial folds, this solution is a great option that smooths skin while allowing for natural facial expression and movement.
- Juvéderm® Voluma: This form of Juvéderm® relies on a thicker, more stable formula to add much-needed volume to hollowed cheeks.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
When we think of the aging process, the development of fine lines and deepening of wrinkles are often the first symptoms that come to mind. Non-surgical treatments like Botox® and Dysport® are great first steps patients can take to help put the breaks on the aging process before it has a chance to worsen.
Derived from the botulinum toxin, both Botox® and Dysport® target and temporarily freeze the muscles responsible for wrinkle and crease development. However, the differences in formula do offer different experiences for different patients. While Botox® injections affect the area where the product is injected, Dysport® may diffuse from the injection site to the surrounding areas. During your pre-treatment consultation, our plastic surgeon will evaluate these differences and help you determine which injection best suits your needs.
Refresh Your Entire Appearance
Looking for a more comprehensive solution to enhancing and revitalizing your appearance? In recent years, liquid facelifts have become a popular treatment year-round. This multi-faceted solution leverages a combination of dermal fillers, neuromodulators (Botox® and Dysport®) as well as laser rejuvenation treatments to help restore our patients’ youthful appearance. As the entire procedure is developed from a combination of non-surgical treatments, liquid facelifts require almost no downtime and can be easily scheduled between family visits and holiday travel.
