Facial rejuvenation can take many forms. In addition to tried and true cosmetic surgery procedures for the face like facelifts and rhinoplasty, my office also offers a variety of nonsurgical cosmetic services for the face. Surgery, though very safe, is not always the right path to help a certain patient achieve their aesthetic goals. Some people seek only a subtle tweak to their appearance that a nonsurgical approach may be able to help with.
Botox® Cosmetic Injections are the most commonly-performed nonsurgical procedure for the face. Thanks to their dependability and versatility, Botox® injections can effectively treat fine lines, frown lines, and wrinkles on the face caused by muscle activity known as dynamic lines. While Botox® injections are primarily used to treat the upper portion of the face, facial filler injections are commonly used to treat the lower third of the face. Facial fillers are helpful for reducing lines known as static lines, that appear when the facial muscles are still. They can also be used to increase volume in areas where it has been lost like the lips and cheeks. Fat Transfer for the face can have a similar effect to facial fillers injections. By using the patient’s own fat that is removed during liposuction, fat transfer injections can safely and naturally restore a more youthful, voluminous appearance. In some cases, the results of fat transfer injections can last a lifetime.
No matter which treatment option you ultimately choose, it’s important to find a trained, skilled provider with extensive experience performing cosmetic injections. When searching for facial rejuvenation, a great price is no substitute for receiving the best-possible care and excellent, long-lasting aesthetic results.
