The desire to look young and attractive is as old as human history. This incredible time in history allows us to maintain or restore our youthful appearance in ways that would have seemed nothing short of magical to our ancestors. Treatments exist that can literally take ten years or more off of anyone’s appearance. Because we all age in appearance in different ways the magic is in choosing the right procedure for the right person. Let’s talk about SoftLift.
As we age we lose fat on our faces. Our cheeks, which were full and high when we were young can sink and develop a triangular shaped flat spot that can appear shaded and grooved. Many of us lose volume in the orbits of our eyes. This causes eye circles that may or may not be dark in appearance. We also lose volume in our lips and other areas of our faces. This lost volume allows the face to fall and contributes to the appearance of lip lines and the folds that appear at the sides and corners of the mouth. Even when we are young, lack of volume can make us look tired!
Lost volume in the face is easy to replace with dermal fillers! This popular procedure can restore the contours and shape your face had when you were younger. Fillers can also be used to create volume where it has never existed. A skilled injector is able to place the correct consistency and amount of filler to precisely replace or create volume to the areas of the face that can benefit.
As we age we also develop wrinkles and lines that eventually become permanently etched in our features. They result from animating the face. We frown, we raise our eyebrows in surprise or joy, we smile, we squint, and we pucker our lips. Animation of the face is, of course, a good thing. The deep lines that result, however, can make us look angry or stressed out when we are actually relaxed and happy.
A class of medications known as neuromodulators can relax muscles to create a more youthful appearance. Neuromodulators have been used for many years to treat many medical conditions. In tiny doses for cosmetic purposes, they are used to relax crows feet around the eyes as well as frown lines and horizontal lines in the forehead. They can also be used to relax lip lines, neck bands, bunny lines on the nose, a gummy smile, a masculine jawline, and more. Neuromodulators that are currently in use include Botox™, Dysport™, and Xeomin™. Popular with women and men, it is the most utilized cosmetic treatment in the world.
Skinpossible’s team of injectors use advanced treatment techniques to ensure that our clients are comfortable. In some areas of the face where a high degree of precision is needed we transfer the filler into smaller needles before we inject it. In areas such as the lips we will first apply numbing cream to desensitize the skin. In other areas, we will choose to avoid the use of needles altogether and use a micro-cannula to place the filler. The micro-cannula is being called the ‘Ouchless Needle.’ It is small and the tip is rounded. The value of the blunt tip is that it is comfortable and the risk of bruising and damage to the skin is minimal.
The skill and experience of your injector will very much dictate the outcome. The key is to do enough, place it properly and not overdo it. Neuromodulator dosing that is too high can freeze features and create a rather odd looking appearance. Moderate dosing, on the other hand, creates a natural, youthful looking appearance that you will love. The results from filler can range from subtle to dramatic but it is important to not overdo it. Too much filler can look unnatural. As a rule of thumb, less is more. If your face can’t move or your lips enter the room before you do, you may have lost perspective!
