When looking for ways to reduce or eliminate fine lines or wrinkles, you’ll find that there are two commonly-used ways to address these problems: dermal fillers or Botox. Sculptra is a widely-used injectable product that “fills in” facial lines, while Botox is an injectable neurotoxin that can relax the facial muscles that are causing the lines. Unsurprisingly both strategies have their strengths and weaknesses; today, we’re going to explore where...
Collagen is found in the body’s various types of connective tissue, including skin, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. Collagen forms dense fibers that provide support, strength, and cushioning – the collagen within our skin is mainly responsible for the elasticity, resiliency, smoothness, and volume of our skin. Collagen production starts to slow down as we age, starting in our early 30’s. As collagen levels decrease, we can begin to develop fine...
Injectable dermal fillers are relatively well-known as effective ways to address lost facial volume and lines or wrinkles. Laser skin tightening is a more recent technique that can be used in several situations to achieve similar results. This blog post discusses the circumstances when each technique is recommended.  Which situations are best handled by laser skin tightening? Laser skin tightening is an effective way to reduce or remove fine lines...
Choosing the best dermal filler can be difficult – there’s considerable overlap between the various products, and this isn’t helped by somewhat confusing marketing messages.  Available fillers fall into three leading product families – Restylane, Juvederm, and Sculptra Aesthetic. Each family contains several different products, each optimized for use in a particular situation. Here’s a summary of the problems that can be addressed using dermal fillers, and our recommendation on...
Both Dermal fillers and Botox are used to smooth out facial lines and wrinkles, and often in combination with each other. However, neither treatment provides permanent results, and sooner or later, you’ll need to go back for more filler.  There are obviously several reasons why most patients would like to extend the results of Botox and fillers and delay the need for repeated injections. We’ve collected several tips and techniques...
There are three main families of injectable dermal filler products – the Restylane product family, the Juvederm product family, and Sculptra Aesthetic.  Restylane and Juvederm products are based on hyaluronic acid, and combined with proprietary additives, will modify the consistency and resiliency of the injected areas. They’re primarily intended to help combat the lines and wrinkles that form as part of the aging process. Sculptra Aesthetic, often referred to simply...
We typically use the various dermal fillers for lip and cheek augmentation, and to correct uneven or wrinkled skin, especially on the face and neck. However, Juvederm and Restylane offer many different product formulations, allowing them to be used in a wide variety of different situations. These range from the correction of small blemishes to larger-scale contour enhancement. There are several lesser-known areas where these versatile dermal fillers can also...
A common symptom of aging is the loss of volume in the face, leading to more prominent wrinkles, lines and folds in the skin, and deepening eye sockets. The primary causes are the natural age-related loss of collagen, fat, and water beneath the skin, in addition to the stretching both of the skin, and of the ligaments beneath the skin. However, loss of facial volume can also be due to...

We assembled the following list to help you achieve the best results. Understand the causes of a problem before trying to correct it.

Surgical facelifts have always been a somewhat risky way to achieve a younger look. They’re effective, but often too effective – everyone has heard stories from legions of patients left with over-stretched, artificial-looking skin. They’re also costly, both in terms of the financial outlay, as well as the sometimes extended periods needed to fully recover. The good news is that there are now several non-invasive treatments that can achieve similar...
