Facial Rejuvenation Part 1: Face Lift

May 18, 2017

Visible signs of aging can be very difficult to conceal- especially on our face.  If your face is showing visible signs of wrinkling or sagging along you cheeks and/or jawline, you may be a candidate for a facelift.   Although there are many non-surgical treatments that can help give your skin a somewhat more youthful appearance, in some cases these treatments alone are not enough.

So, what can you expect when having a Face Lift Surgery?  The incisions made during a Face Lift are created in a discreet location; often along the hairline and in front of the ear.  This helps mask any visible scarring that may occur.   When having a Face Lift…

Tired Look

March 06, 2017

Let‘s face it, as we get older our face starts to show our age.  Sometimes, we are genuinely tired, but sometimes we look tired even when we are not.  Has someone ever said to you, “You look tired today.”  Well, mama says if you can’t say anything nice, you shouldn’t say anything at all.

In some cases, maybe you are up all night with a newborn. If that’s the case, no wonder you look tired.  But, sometimes even after a full eight hours, you still have a tired look. Maybe it’s because of sagging around your eyes?  Maybe it’s because of a furrow across your forehead?

If you are experiencing a chronic tired look, here are some solutions.

Latisse

February 27, 2017

There is something to be said for long, beautiful lashes.  Not only do they accentuate the eye area, but they can also give you the appearance of an overall brighter look.

Maybe you have always had thin lashes or short and unnoticeable lashes.  Perhaps you just want darker lashes that stand out more.  Maybe you have seen your lashes start to thin over time due to age or hair loss.  Regardless of the reason, Latisse could be the answer.

Before starting Latisse, there are some things you should know:

  1. Latisse is believed to prolong active growth of lashes, but it is important to know that once you stop using it, your lashes will eventually…

NeoGraft for Women

February 22, 2017

It may come as a surprise, but women make up roughly 40 percent of people suffering from hair loss in America. Hair loss can be a difficult thing to deal with and can play a major impact on self-confidence.  There are several contributing factors to female hair loss:

  1. Genetics- thinning hair or Female Pattern Baldness is something where heredity is a major contributing factor.
  2. Trauma- When your body goes through something traumatic (physically or emotionally) or you experience extreme stress, it can cause you to lose handfuls of hair. Sometimes this only lasts 3-4 months after the stressor occurs, but for some people, it can become a chronic disorder.

Botox vs. Juvederm

January 30, 2017

Often times we find patients don’t always know the difference between Botox and Jevederm.  While they are both injections that can be used for cosmetic purposes, they are vastly different products.  We are going to breakdown each product, so you can decide which is right for you.

Juvederm is a filler made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, most prominently in the eyes and joints.  Juvederm is injected into the skin or sometimes just under it in order to restore diminished volume and achieve youthful skin.  It can smooth wrinkles, folds, and laugh lines.  It can also lift and contour cheeks and plump lips. It is primarily…

Brow Lift

January 25, 2017

Unfortunately, age and gravity don’t always work together.  As we get older and our skin gets thinner, we frequently see the areas around our eyes start to sag downward.   The sagging around the eye area can give the impression that you are angry or upset, when that might not be the case at all. In addition, a sagging brow area can make you look older. So what can you do? Consider a Brow Lift (also known as a forehead lift) to help you combat the drooping face.

A Brow Lift not only lifts the area around the eyes, it can also reduce the wrinkles that develop across the forehead and across the bridge of the nose (between the eyes).  In addition, a brow lift can…
