Facelift in a Syringe
By now, dermal fillers like Resylane®, Perlane®, Juvederm® and Juvederm Ultra Plus® have become household names.
Most people know that these treatments can fill in the lines between the nose and mouth (the nasolabial folds), but Dr. West also uses fillers in combination with Dysport™ and Botox®, to contour and lift the entire face.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
As you age , you lose volume in your face, including the area around the mouth which most people notice first, but there is also volume loss occurring in the mid face cheeks and along the jaw line.
The result is sagging skin because there is less volume to hold it up. Also, with volume loss in the cheeks and jaw line comes the formation of jowls.
In one minimally invasive treatment session, Dr. West can use a variety of fillers to lift sagging mouth corners, redefine the lip line(with or without plumping the lips), fill in cheek hollows, redefine the jaw line (minimizing jowls), and even fill in dark under eye hollows.
Following just two repeat injection sessions, Restylane® has now been shown to last 18 months!
So when you come back in for a touch-up, you’re building on a “base” and instead of continuing to lose volume (which would occur naturally), you’ll continue to maintain youthful facial contours.
