With family reunions, holiday dinners and festive parties on the horizon, having the right outfit is just part of the equation to look your best this holiday season. Facial beauty and skin rejuvenation are also important for many preparing for the upcoming winter events.
When planning to look your best in the next few weeks, we suggest choosing a procedure which has quick results and will last well past the New Year. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. George Landis, offers multiple treatments which do just that.
One of the first visible signs of aging is the appearance of expression lines on the forehead and about the eyes. These blemishes are a result of constant movement of facial muscles as we smile, laugh, or squint. Botox is a purified version of botulinum toxin which blocks nerve activity in the muscle. This effect will soften facial wrinkles and fine lines and leave you with a smooth, youthful skin presence.
The procedure is quick and easy, and the results will last well past the New Year. There is no downtime with side-effects limited to some redness or swelling which subside in a few hours or a couple of days.
Although Botox is extremely popular, patients should be wary on who performs the procedure. With many fly-by-night “Botox Parties” available, too many injectors have little to no training and may put your results and health at risk. Dr. Landis is recognized as an Allergan Platinum Level Injector which ensures a safe treatment and optimal results.
With age, your face may experience sagging skin, wrinkles, lines, hollows, and voids. To fight this process, Dr. Landis offers non-surgical, minimally invasive dermal fillers to resolve the effects of aging and restore a youthful, fresh appearance. This look will go with any outfit you choose to look fantastic at any holiday event.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
With a selection of popular fillers available, Dr. Landis can artistically control facial contours while diminishing the signs of aging. One type of filler which can provide amazing results are those made from non-animal, biodegradable, and stable hyaluronic acid. This component is a natural sugar found in the skin to support fullness and volume.
As we age, hyaluronic acid levels diminish slowly paving the way for the visible signs of aging becoming prominent. Hyaluronic acid fillers are beneficial skin treatments because they replenish this much needed natural element which attracts moisture and expands. This expansion promotes a plumping effect which raises folds, wrinkles, and lines from beneath the skin making them less visible. Results last from six months to two years.
Calcium Hydroxyapatite Fillers
This dermal filler uses bone shaped microspheres which suspend in a watery, loose gel. For many decades this component was used in the dental field before it became popular as a dermal filler. These fillers stimulate collagen within the skin adding structure and support, and allowing for the shaping and molding of facial contours to improve definition and enhance beauty.
This type of filler is a powerful treatment for lifting deep folds and frown lines, as well as diminishing acne scarring. It can also provide an improvement to nose, chin and jawline contours. As with the hyaluronic acid fillers, the calcium hydroxyapatite fillers are non-allergenic with a low risk of adverse reactions.
