Are you constantly being asked if you are tired or angry?  Have you noticed the appearance of crow’s feet, deep forehead furrows, or deepening of the facial folds around your mouth? Do your cheeks and lips no longer have the youthful volume they once had?  Unfortunately, as we age our facial appearance may not always reflect how we feel inside. 

While you might not be happy with these signs of aging it may be too early to consider a surgical facelift; or perhaps you desire a more conservative approach with minimal down time.  Fortunately, with BOTOX® Cosmetic, XEOMIN®, and dermal fillers such as RADIESSE®, Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC, BELOTERO BALANCE® among others, you can rejuvenate your aging face during a quick office visit; this is sometimes referred to as a “liquid facelift”.

Botox and Xeomin can reduce the vertical or horizontal lines on your forehead and crow’s feet by inhibiting the muscle contractions which cause them. They can also give you a subtle browlift, which in turn opens up your eyes. The dermal fillers Radiesse, Juvederm, Belotero, and Voluma address deep facial lines, as well as loss of volume in areas like the cheeks and lips.  I often find that enhancing your cheeks along with treating lines and folds restores your “young, fresh” look.  The universal response when I hand my patients a mirror is “Wow, this is what I looked like years ago!”
