Feel and look your best without surgery
A non surgical face lift might be an option for you. While surgery may have been the staple of facial rejuvenation in the past, advances in medical technology and in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic domains have produced many new treatment options for patients today. Various non-surgical modalities can represent a great first step in correcting or improving facial appearance and in reversing some of the first signs of aging.
Types of Non-Surgical Treatments:
Over the last decade Neuro- modulators have become one of the most widely used facial cosmetic procedures. Neuro- modulators are very effective in eliminating deep facial lines and wrinkles in both men and women.
The treatment has a low complications rate and risk profile. However, it is important to have an experienced healthcare professional with specific training and knowledge of facial musculature perform the treatment.
The reason is not only to avoid complications but also to ensure that the most benefit is obtained and the results are natural and not “overdone”.
Similar to neuro-modulators, the use of fillers in the treatment of facial aging has become more and more popular over the last decade. Facial fillers provide a quick and easy method of addressing some of the most prominent signs of aging. One very popular area for using fillers is around the eyes (perio-orbital area).
Fillers can also be used to modify tear troughs (which otherwise give the appearance of bags under the eyes), to fill deep creases between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) or to smooth the deep lines in the chin. Many different types and brands of facial fillers are available today.
Injected into the strategic areas of the nose, fillers can be used to address small imperfections and improve the overall appearance of the nose. In order to avoid complications and poor results, this procedure should be done by an expert with advanced knowledge of the anatomy and the aesthetic principles that guide rhinoplasty.
Dr. Javidnia individualizes treatment of the lips to each patient’s needs. Depending on the individual, injectable fillers can enhance the fullness and contour of the lips. The use of wrinkle relaxers, skin care and lasers will address the fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. If right for you, the surgical lip-lifting procedure can improve the appearance of the upper lip area like no other treatment. Using a combination of these modalities simultaneously maximizes the results.
If you’re looking for a non-invasive, natural and gradual way to reverse the signs of aging, volumeloss, and collagen loss, then poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra® Aesthetic) may be the treatment for you. Over time, our body produces less collagen, leading to volume loss and loss of elasticity of our skin. Poly-L-lactic acid helps to increase collagen production to reverse these effects of aging.
The underlying philosophy guiding Dr. Javidnia’s approach to any facial cosmetic treatment, be it surgical or non-surgical, is twofold. First, each and every person is unique in the way his or her face and skin ages. We all have a myriad of different environmental and genetic factors which play an important role in how we age and how our face changes over time. Because of this, using a “one size fits all” approach to facial rejuvenation is not appropriate. Every person should be carefully examined and evaluated by a professional with extensive training and experience in order to determine which treatment option are best in their particular case.
The second principle is that over-treatment is very possible and frequently practiced. When it comes to exposing the face to any surgical or even non-surgical treatment, a “less is more” approach is always best. It is much easier to add small changes in order to improve the results than it is to undo something that has been “over-done”. The best aesthetic look is the one that is subtle and natural.
