Combining different treatments can provide amazing results. Popular treatments such as Botox, fillers, and a variety of laser treatments can work well in combination to address multiple concerns.
What changes occur in the face with age?
Over time there are a number of changes that occur in the face. The changes are seen in multiple levels. For example, there are changes in your bones which make the facial structure change. These cause sagging of the skin, formation of laugh lines (nasolabial folds), marionette lines, jowls on the jawline, and hollowing under the eyes and in the temples. Muscles that you use for facial expressions get stronger. This leads to wrinkles such as frown lines between your eyebrows, horizontal forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet around your eyes. At the same time, the amount of collagen your body makes decreases. Collagen is the protein in the skin that keeps the skin tight, firm, and youthful. As a result, you start to see fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and sagging. Sun exposure can lead to further damage in collagen, making wrinkles even more visible. It also leads to the appearance uneven color, brown spots, redness, and broken capillaries.
What treatments are used to treat changes caused by aging?
Fillers such as Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella are used to restore lost volume in the face. In the patient whose picture is shown here Voluma was used in the temples, upper cheeks, and jawline and Vollure was used in the lower face. This provided a lift to the face, an improvement in the hollowing in the temples and under the eyes, restoration of volume loss, and improved jawline definition. Botox was also used to treat the frown lines, horizontal forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. The vertical frown lines between her eyebrows are visibly better. She received a series of #nofilter treatments to improve the color of the skin. The #nofilter treatment also stimulates your body to produce its own natural, new, fresh, and healthy collagen. This is what helps provide the lift and glow. Finally, she also used the A E Skin line of products to provide an even color, smooth texture, and radiant glow. When these treatments are combined it provides a natural result that makes you look younger and rested.
Botox, Voluma, and #nofilter Testimonial
"Hi there, my name is Danielle and I have been coming to Dr. Alex for the last couple years. I decided to come to Dr. Alex because I’m actually very thin and I was concerned with hollowing in my face and wanted to restore volume. And I wanted to also make sure that I maintain that young, youthful glowing skin always. I’ve done Botox, and I’ve done Voluma and the results have been amazing. The nofilter treatment for me is absolutely amazing. I notice the coloring in my skin, the glowing of my skin, and the actual texture of my is like night and day. Botox doesn’t hurt. It’s easy. And it helps maintain that even more so for me. And the Voluma, which I was actually scared of at the very beginning. That is easy. It doesn’t hurt. And that just makes everything come together and looks even better."
