When choosing the best age reversing procedure for you there are four elements to consider: results, price downtime and pain. The most common areas of the face that people want to correct are; droopy brows, under eye bags, nasolabial folds, and thin lips. Here are some tips that Dr. Stanciu recommends as a solution to these issues.
1. Remove under eye bags and raise droopy brows
Under eye bags arise when the fat surrounding the orbital rim has shifted out of place. With age there are changes that involve fat, muscles and skin that make the eyelids become weak and tired looking. Dr. Stanciu recommends a combination of Botox Cosmetic properly injected to raise the eyebrow and treat the crow’s feet and fillers in the periorbital area to diminish bags and treat the tear trough.
Collagen stimulating skin care that hydrates and is rich in anti-oxidants is crucial in maintaining the results of surgical treatments. Slack upper-eyelid skin tends to accompany saggy brows. For those who suffer from extreme hooding and feel as if they’ve lost some sight, eye lid surgery is many times indicated to help give the patient a refreshed appearance.
2. Reduce nasolabial folds or laugh lines
As the skin begins to thin and lose support, and fat diminishes, the cheeks become affected too, taking on a flat appearance and deepening the line of distinction between the eyes, the cheeks and the lower face. One of the quickest most reliable ways of correcting nasolabial folds or laugh lines is filling them with hyaluronic acid. Fillers like Juvederm® and Radiesse® provide excellent outcomes in this area. If the cheek area is treated with deeper fillers like Radiesse the results are longer lasting for a more rejuvenated look. Fillers cannot correct substantial volume loss or skin laxity. In this case surgery should be considered.
3. Get Fuller lips
Recent research suggests that the volume in your lips starts to decline as early as your mid-30s. Most people want fuller lips but do not want a “duck-like-look”. In the hands of an experienced injector like Dr. Stanciu the lips can be augmented to create a natural look. As the lips begin to thin out the upper lip loses fullness and vertical lines start to form causing lipstick to bleed. Filling this area is important and requires skillful use of injectables for a desired natural outcome. Marionette lines cause major changes in someone’s expression. These should be carefully corrected so the corners of the mouth maintain a horizontal or upward position in relationship to the midline.
4. European Face Lift- Revolutionary Alternative to Surgery
Dr. Stanciu developed a unique facial rejuvenation treatment that offers a relatively, safe minimally invasive way to smooth out wrinkles, fill in furrows and plump up the hollows and correct facial imperfections. This treatment called the European Face Lift sculpts and lifts the face by combining dermal fillers with injectables such as Botox® Cosmetic in order to correct wrinkles in different ways. These cosmetic fillers such as Juvederm®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Perlane®, and Sculptra® replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin smoothing away wrinkles. In contrast Botox® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles that cause frown lines between the eyebrows.
