As we continue to learn the science and fundamentals responsible for the aging process, we can offer more efficacious treatment plans. One aspect that we continue to research is the facial volumetric shifts as we age. Generally speaking, we lose fat and bone in our face as we age. Injectables that add volume to the face are commonly used to rejuvenate the face. I believe the loss of volume of the face can begin at the late 20’s or early 30’s. For this reason, many patients have excellent results using facial injectables at earlier ages. As a facial plastic surgeon in Charlotte, I frequently use facial fillers and Botox to rejuvenate the face.
Injectables to Highlight
Just as women carefully place makeup to highlight and brighten focal points of the face, the eyes, cheeks, and smile, properly placed injectables are also used to emphasize and highlight the same areas. The angles on the face can either reflect or shadow light. Reflecting light creates a face that is healthy, vibrant, and alive. Shadowing can create a face that looks tired or aged. By using facial fillers, I can change how light interacts on the face and highlight the eyes, cheeks, and smile. The common facial fillers I use are Restylane near the eyes, Perlane around the cheeks and mouth, and Juvéderm in the lips.
Injectables to Slow Aging
As the technology and techniques regarding injectables continue to evolve and the results are improving. I believe it it is possible to use injectables to slow the aging process. We are happy to take the time and energy to maintain our car, but how come many do not take the same time and energy to maintain the structure of the face?
Botox and Fillers to Overcome Aging
I currently use Botox and facial fillers to help patients overcome the signs of aging in my Charlotte practice. Dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane can restore lost volume and fill fine lines and wrinkles. Using a cannula instead of the traditional needle, my facial filler procedure is more comfortable and less damaging to surrounding tissue than the average injectable procedure.
Botox is an injectable that does not fill in volume like facial fillers, but relaxes the muscles underneath wrinkles. As the muscle relaxes, the wrinkle smoothens.
