Historically speaking, women have never been fond of revealing their age. In fact, women throughout the ages have been known to do everything in their power to keep their age all to themselves. We believe that your age is your own business and no one else’s. That is why we have made it our business to help you keep that number to yourself.
Age-keeping is not only a woman’s issue. More and more today, we are seeing an interest among men and women of all ages to manage their facial aesthetic. A youthful appearance is not all about beauty anymore; it has also been discovered that the appearance of our face helps us earn a certain reputation. If you are interested in looking and feeling your best, we urge you . . . Don’t stop with your face.
How Age Sneaks into the Big Picture
We put a lot of effort into smoothing lines and wrinkles on the face. If we’re not looking at the big picture, though, age can reveal itself in other ways.
- The neck. The same changes that affect the skin on the face also impact skin elsewhere. The neck has muscular bands that run in a horizontal pattern. These fibers loose elasticity and firmness when collagen levels plummet, which leads to lines and sagging. The skin on the neck may need a bit of help. This may come in the form of Botox to reduce platysmal bands, or laser skin resurfacing to improve tone, texture, and tightness.
- The hands. The backs of your hands are not much different than your cheeks. Both areas are notorious for losing volume as we age. On the face, this leads to lines and wrinkles. On the hands, volume loss exacerbates the prominence of veins and tendons. Dermal fillers such as Radiesse and other hyaluronic acid products restores youthfulness to the hands.
- The brow line. As much as we focus on the face, you would think brow lifts would be more common than they are. In time, many people notice that their eyes look more tired, or that they do not look as friendly as they are. This could be because the brow line is beyond pulled downward by constricted muscles. Loosen up and lighten up the tone of your face with Botox or Dysport for a non-surgical brow lift.
