Putting Your Best Face Forward in 2014
With 2014 finally here, most of us are beginning to put our New Year’s goals in motion. Attaining a “new you” usually consists of common resolutions like losing weight, quitting smoking, or spending more time with your family. Maybe achieving a youthful facial appearance is what you’ve always desired. However, reducing the signs of aging on the face is easier said than done. This is why our New Jersey practice offers many non-surgical methods to diminish facial imperfections, leaving you looking younger and more attractive.
The development of wrinkles and creases on the face are an inevitable part of the aging process. To combat these flaws, we carry BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® to eliminate wrinkles on the forehead, corner of the eyes (crow’s feet), and lines above the upper lip.
We also have an array of fillers that effectively add fullness to various areas of the face. Approved by the FDA, JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are commonly used to fill in creases around the nose, mouth, and jaw line to naturally volumize the face. Other popular FDA-approved fillers that we carry include RADIESSE® and Sculptra®, which are composed of the natural substances like calcium hydroxylapatite and poly-L-lactic acid.
We are pleased to have been selected as a center of excellence by Allergan. As a result, we are one of an elite group of practices to offer JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC, which is a new filler approved for enhancement of the cheek area with results that last up to 2 years.
Since all of the fillers that we use are composed of substances that are naturally found in the body, patients do not need to worry about any allergy testing beforehand.
In addition to injectables and fillers, facial implants are another option for facial rejuvenation. PermaLip™ lip implants are composed of soft and flexible silicone to permanently increase the size of the lips, while still maintaining a natural appearance.
Laser Skin Resurfacing / Intense Pulse Light (IPL) / Photofacial
Perhaps your skin suffers from blemishes like acne scars, irregularities in skin tone, or hyperpigmentation from years of sun exposure. Laser skin resurfacing applies intense pulses of light directly to the skin to eliminate these imperfections to add a revitalizing facial appearance.
Whether your New Year’s resolution is to get in the best shape of your life or finally drop the smoking habit, it always wise to make sure you put your best face forward. Plus, with the minimal downtime that exists with these forms of facial treatment, you won’t have to worry about missing out anything in 2014.
We hope you have an amazing year and look forward to helping you with any cosmetic procedures that you desire.
