What Our Patients Are Asking About Facial Enhancement Procedures
What are the best alternatives to a face lift?
Generally, there are no equal substitutes. Every alternative does something different. A facelift tightens the skin of the face and neck as you might do with your fingers by gently pulling back towards your ears. This takes away excess skin and most wrinkles but doesn’t alter the actual texture of the skin. Injectable fillers can fill out indentations or creases but can’t compete with facelift with regard to tightening or restoring more youthful lines. >BOTOX® Cosmetic simply stops the undesirable creases associated with some facial expressions.
What is the best treatment for under eye wrinkles?
When very subtle, these lines might respond to topical creams. For more severe lines especially when associated with bulging and excess skin, surgical options include blepharoplasty and laser skin resurfacing.
What’s the difference between popular wrinkle fillers? There are so may “wrinkle fillers” like Restylane, Juvederm, etc. How can I pick the right one?
Restylane and JUVÉDERM™ are very similar products manufactured by two different companies. It’s generally a question of personal preference. Fillers can differ in how long they last and how effective they are for different areas. What’s effective for lip enlargement might not be best for a crease.
