Do you ever wonder why some of your friends look so much younger than you do? It may be their best-kept secret. They might be getting Botox and Juvederm at Skinpossible! Combined, they are known as Soft Lift™ and when done correctly, Soft Lift can improve or take years off anyone’s appearance. Thanks to some TV shows, however, there are a lot of misconceptions that taint opinions and deprive many from the benefits. This article will clear up some misconceptions. >>
As we age we lose fat from 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 that result in eye circles that may or may not be dark in appearance. We also lose volume in our lips and other areas of the face. 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.
Results are instant and natural in appearance!
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 crowsfeet 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 physician and nurse 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.
Administering neuromodulators and dermal fillers is an art! The key is to do enough, place it properly and not overdo it. The changes will be subtle but the difference it makes will be dramatic. You will look just like yourself, only better!
Your friends will wonder why you look so much younger than they do!
