In your 20s, skin is generally free of the signs of aging. Start a medically supervised treatment plan now to protect your skin from the harmful effects of sun and environment.
Proper cleansing, moisturizing, and use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily will help ward off early wrinkles and enlarged pores. Mild peels and topical treatments may help control acne.
Botox® injections can prevent lines and filler agents such as Radiesse®, Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and Juvéderm Ultra Plus® can be used to fill out smile lines and augment lips.
For unfavorable size and shape of body features, surgery may be in order. Rhinoplasty, otoplasty and other aesthetic procedures can often be performed.
Decreased firmness and skin elasticity are a natural part of aging. Introducing anti-oxidants into your skincare routine can help prevent sun damage that leads to lines and age spots. Also, alpha hydroxy acids in conjunction with retinoids and topical antioxidants can restore a youthful appearance to the skin.
Non-invasive laser procedures may improve fine lines, brown spots, and broken blood vessels. Botox® injections can diminish laugh lines and create a smoother forehead. Fillers like Radiesse®, Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and Juvéderm Ultra Plus® can be used to fill smile lines and augment lips.
For those in their 40s, damage caused by sun exposure become apparent. More aggressive skincare can help combat the visible signs of aging. A combination of topical solutions like tretinoin (Retin-A), AHAs, and BHAs, along with microdermabrasion brings the best results.
There are many procedures available to smooth and tighten skin. Photofacials, chemical peels, and topical treatments are effective in decreasing the signs of aging as well as minimizing pore size. Fillers like Radiesse®, Restylane®, Juvéderm® and Juvéderm Ultra Plus® can help restore volume in the mid-face and fill smile lines. For upper face and forehead lines, Botox® injections may be in order.
For those who choose the surgical route, face, brow, eye and neck lifts are very popular procedures.
By age fifty, regular skin examinations by a certified aesthetician or plastic surgeon are essential.
Maintaining natural moisture is more difficult. Peels and light therapy in combination with ultra-hydrating home care can help maintain the balance. Laser resurfacing combined with fillers to restore volume can provide an impressive rejuvenation.
In all likelihood, more extensive facial rejuvenation and resurfacing procedures will be necessary at this stage. Depending on your appearance goals, comprehensive surgery can reverse signs of aging in the face, brow, mid-face, and neck areas. A facelift or brow lift in conjunction with laser resurfacing can yield dramatic results. The payoff for more invasive surgery is a natural, more supple look that is virtually undetectable.
BOTOX® & DYSPORT
As we age we develop fine lines and wrinkles on our face. These wrinkles often form around the eyes as "crow's feet" and along the forehead both as long, transverse lines and as small lines in the center pointing toward the nose. They are caused by the movement of small facial muscles under the skin.
Botox® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes the deep and persistent lines and wrinkles that develop over time. Botox decreases the damaging muscle movements while allowing you to be very expressive. With over 100 muscles in our face, we can dramatically decrease lines and wrinkles by just shutting down a few of those muscles. Botox is safe and effective and usually lasts for about four to six months.
JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC
One of the most common signs of facial aging is the loss of volume in the cheek area. Juvederm Voluma™ XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal approved by the FDA to increase the volume of the cheeks.
Austin Plastic Surgery Center is one of the first clinics in the Austin to offer this new product.
Juvéderm® XC with lidocaine for extra comfort, provides smooth, long-lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. A dermal filler used to restore volume and fullness to the skin, it gives a healthy, youthful appearance.
Juvéderm is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. Results last about 6 to 9 months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.
Radiesse® is a safe, FDA-approved dermal filler that is used primarily to treat areas of the face with obvious signs of aging. By helping to rebuild your skin’s foundation, it can restore a more youthful look. Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last for months or years, although the procedure can be repeated as often as you wish. Radiesse is a longer-lasting filler that leaves a matrix of collagen and microspheres that your body reacts to and helps fill deficiencies, thereby stimulating your skin to produce more of its own collagen in the treated area.
Restylane® and Perlane®
Young skin appears so supple and full, at least partly because of a naturally occurring substance in your body called hyaluronic acid. The loss of hyaluronic acid causes skin to lose its natural fullness and elasticity, resulting in wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth, and an aged appearance.
There is way to replace that lost volume and smooth look to your skin. The Restylane® family of hyaluronic fillers can restore a younger-looking you. Our nurse injector will help you choose between Restylane®, Restylane-L®, Perlane®, and Perlane-L® to add the volume and fullness you need to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
