You know them as Botox and Dysport, neuromodulators are also known as Botulinum Toxins that help relax unwanted muscles like brow furrow (the “elevens”), crow’s feet (sides of each eye), and forehead wrinkles. These injections are safe, quick, and effective- taking away that scowl, softening your look, and YES, you will still look like yourself but even better! It’s impressive what impact non-surgical cosmetic treatments like lasers, fillers and peels can have. You don’t have to have surgery to lift skin and smooth wrinkles. The so-called “Liquid Facelift” is a non-surgical procedure that uses injectable gel fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane, to gently lift facial features, reduce wrinkles and folds, and create a brighter, more rested look. Restoring volume to your face as we age is like filling a wrinkled balloon with air to give it new life and a healthier look.
When you selectively combine available non-surgical treatments, you see a cumulative facial rejuvenation that can correct any and all of the effects of aging on the face – without surgery and its requisite downtime and cost.
“ Prevention and maintenance is the goal, and Prejuvenation is the tool, some of the first things patients undergo include skin care with light chemical peels, Microdermabrasion, Micro-needling RF, and neuromodulators. Neuromodulation to stop overactive facial muscle movement with the agents Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport is also commonly started early on.” For these millennials, social media and selfie awareness is likely a key driver. Forty-two percent of facial plastic surgeons reported an uptick in patients seeking cosmetic procedures to look better in selfies, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook Live and other social channels.
But on the other end of the aging continuum, Gen Xers and baby boomers are redefining just how arbitrary age and aging really is. Being 60 today is a lot different than it was decades ago, people are, in general, healthier and feel healthier and look the part.
