I want to do something about my aging face and skin this year, but I don't want a facelift. What can I do?

Most of my clients are concerned about the aging process and the subtle changes they see over time. Hollowness under the eyes, extra skin between the nose and mouth (nasal labial folds) and lower mouth lines (marionette) are some of the common areas of concern.  

Aging is about volume loss. As we age we lose bone, muscle and fat especially in the mid and upper face. But the good news is we have a correction that is beautiful, natural and subtle in the hands of a skilled provider.  

By injecting small amounts of fillers such as Voluma, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Sculptra and others we can refill the contours of the face giving the face a more vibrant and youthful look.   

One of my client's biggest concerns is "Will it look natural?" ͟ 

I believe if it doesn't look natural it doesn't look good! Since fillers are soft and moldable I am able to sculpt contours and lift that result in more beautiful, youthful features. 

It look that is you, only better.  

I love to hear the positive feedback my clients get about how "pretty" they look. Friends and family notice the improvement but can never put their finger on what my clients have had done because it is so natural and subtle. 

Second, My clients wonder if it will hurt? 

The best part about fillers is there is NO downtime, it is a lunchtime procedure. Give me an hour and I will give you 5-10 years back!  

Non-invasive facial rejuvenation like fillers and botox are so popular because they are quick, comfortable and oh so beautiful.  

At Center for Facial Rejuvenation, Lacy, my cosmetic nurse starts everyone with numbing cream and a VIP snack bar. Then I use an advanced injection technique that is both gentle and quick.  

Ice and Arnica (anti-bruising gel) are applied after the treatment and my clients are on their  way back to their normal activities.   

The convenience and comfort of facial fillers and Botox made them the most sought after procedures in the industry. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 6.6 million people received Botox and 2.2 million received fillers in 2013. 

Fillers like Voluma and Sculptra can last up to two years making them a very good investment. 

So are fillers right for you? 

I recommend you seek out a trained provider who is not only an expert in injectables but also and artist. Ask your friends or hairstylist for recommendations. Once you have made your selection check their webpage for credentials and reviews. Once in the consultation, discuss your concerns and also the improvements you would like to make.  

Resurface, Relax, Refill….now you feel beautiful!
