LIQUID FACELIFT near Los Angeles, CA – Adam Kinal MD
If you feel you just aren’t ready for a traditional face lift but still want to have a refreshed look then perhaps a LIQUID FACELIFT is for you.
With the use of injectables such as dermal fillers, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and Dysport® we have developed advanced techniques to gently lift and contour facial features without surgery. Fillers such as Radiesse®, JUVEDERM®, Sculptra® and others are providing longer lasting and more cost effective results.
ANATOMY OF FACIAL AGING
Facial aging begins with the surface and subsurface structural changes including skin, fat, muscle and bone.
• With age, skin undergoes several changes, including
• Drier Skin
• Less Elastic Skin
• Skin more prone to wrinkle or sag
• Reduction in Collagen
• Less Volume
A youthful look depends on having the right amount of facial fat in the right places.
Atrophy of fat leads to facial volume loss. However, some other areas may gain fat, such as the mouth and jaw.
Additionally, areas of fat separate and become further apart which leads to a surface that has lost the appearance of a smooth layer of tissue.
TELL TALES SIGNS OF FACIAL AGING
• Greater visibility of bony landmarks, lines and wrinkles.
• Prominence of transverse forehead lines
• Nasolabial folds become more prominent (Laugh Lines)
• Changes in the area around the mouth including wrinkles are the vermillion border, thinning of the lips, marionette lines
• Hollowing of the face and temples
• Fat loss in cheeks
How does the LIQUID FACELIFT work?
Dermal fillers or fat transfer can be used to lift and contour facial features. Reduce wrinkles, creases, folds and lines. Restore a natural facial contour giving a youthful, more radiant appearance. Botox or Dysport can be used to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and tension in the muscles of the face.
When you find that the smile lines, crows feet or forehead lines are making you look tired or angry Botox is an excellent alternative to surgery. You can temporarily restore a youthful look with eliminating fine lines, crows feet and creases on your face.
It relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, giving the skin a smooth appearance, and leaving you looking more refreshed and youthful.
VOLUME DEPLETION AND CORRECTION.
As we age our face loses fat and volume which hollows out the cheeks, temples and more. With less padding underneath the skin, the skin sags and drapes on your face.
Adding volume to the face will bring back a youthful look to the face.
Consulting with Dr. Kinal will allow you to ask questions and get information on the best way to achieve volume correction, either with Fillers or with Fat Transfer.
The appearance of the skin is also a tell tale sign of aging. Regular facials are an important part of your skin health and routine but resurfacing is an alternative and corrective procedure to refreshing and renewing the appearance of the skin.
Resurfacing will correct the effects of photo aging, fine lines, irregular pigmentation and blemishes. Common resurfacing techniques include:
- Chemical Peels
- Laser resurfacing
- Co2 fractional Laser
