Timeless beauty is about age and skin management. Having beautiful skin is more than just applying creams, potions and serums on the skin; it’s about lifestyle and maintenance. As we age, our skin loses collagen, elastin and its natural ability for efficient cell turnover. These losses leave our skin looking dull, wrinkled and dry. In addition, volume loss under the skin with bone, muscle and fat atrophy leads to sagginess and wrinkling of the skin. The volume loss gives us a tired, unhappy or unrefreshed look. Skin and age management can reverse these changes to restore your youthful vibrance.
First in skin and age management, the goal is to rebuild the foundation. Dermal fillers such as Sculptra, Voluma, Restylane and Juvederm may be used to replace the volume loss in the face. With expert technique and thorough understanding of the natural structure of the face, the volume replacement will lift the skin to fill in the under eye dark circles, tighten the jaw line, lift the brows and lift the corners of the mouth to give a refreshed, rested but natural look.
