The aging process also affects the skin, fat, muscles and bone of the face, with the aggregate result being the sinking and sagging we notice in our face as we age. If the primary concern is the lines and wrinkles in the face, especially around the eyes and forehead, then neuromodulators may be an option. Often combined with injectable fillers, the neuromodulators include many options-Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, Myobloc, among others.
Achieving a natural appearance is very important, avoiding the motionless face or the “Spock Look”. Creating natural results demands a critical/thoughtful analysis of your face, especially your unique muscle movements and their relative strength. By understanding the movement, slight weakening of one group of muscles, may allow for another group to be unopposed to create a desired effect. For example, the brows may be preferentially elevated by weakening the brow depressors.
Each patient is analyzed carefully and presents a different anatomic picture and requires a different set of tools for optimal, natural facial rejuvenation. You can be sure your treatment will be individualized to your particular needs.
