Our world is constantly evolving and so are we. Our culture is rapidly changing and this effects how we react to this evolution. The traditional thinking, of plastic surgery patients, is to ” help me look young again”. Through facelifts, Botox, Injectable fillers, a lot of the telltale signs of aging can be reduced, creating a more youthful appearance. But what if people start saying “Keep me looking young” and not progress to the point of an aging appearance? Can this be accomplished? The answer is YES! Let’s take a look at why this is true.
The earliest signs of facial aging are the lines that form on the forehead and around the eyes, known as “frown lines” and “crows feet”. These lines are the result of the muscles we use for making facial expressions. The more we use them, over time, these lines become more apparent, usually becoming noticeable in the mid to late twenties. If low dose neurotoxin (Botox) is injected into these regions, at a younger age, these line can be prevented, long term! The earlier these injections are performed, the lower the does and intervals they would be required.
Another sign of progressive aging are the folds that deepen, in the crease connecting the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth (nasolabial fold). As we age, the soft tissue slides down from the upper face and settles along this area creating that deep crease. Early, on injectable fillers can be used in low doses to counter this appearance, maintaining your youthful appearance. As I just mentioned, the soft tissues from the upper face, migrates down and settles along the nasolabial area and jaw region, creating “jowling” and the downward lines by the corner of your mouth (marionette lines), Again, fillers are a great way to maintain youthful looks and counter the soft tissue migration. The earlier they are used, the less is required and you maintain the youthful look you desire.
