Hand Skin Resurfacing is a MUST!

Hand Rejuvenation

If you take care of your face with great skincare, chemical peels, Botox, fillers and laser resurfacing but neglect your hands then they will give your age away. Multiple options exist for hand rejuvenation from good skincare, chemical peels,  laser and dermal fillers such as Juvederm.

The loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid in our skin makes the texture of our hands change so that they look dry and withered looking. Years of UV exposure lead to age spots and hyperpigmentation. Loss of fat and hyaluronic acid lead to exposure of veins and tendons.

So what can be used to rejuvenate your hands and remove the telltale signs of aging? Dermal fillers, medical grade skincare, chemical peels, and lasers  are options for hand skin resurfacing.

Dermal Fillers for hand skin resurfacing

First, dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Anteis, Radiesse will bring a youthful volume back. Fillers will fill in the gaps between the tendons and veins so that the hands are no longer old and bony looking. Finer hyaluronic acid injected superficially into the skin, also called mesotherapy will plump up the skin and decrease dryness as the hyaluronic acid pulls water into the skin. The procedure is quick and very effective giving absolutely remarkable hand skin resurfacing results.

Neck and Chin Rejuvenation Benefits

neckAs we age many of us suffer from a very common aesthetic problem— loosening and discoloration of our neck and chin. Increased wrinkling, laxity, and discoloration of the neck and chin can make us age faster then we’d like. The causes of this are usually multi-factorial and may include hereditary predisposition, excess sun exposure, smoking, excessive drinking, weight loss and weight gain. At Dermaworks Medical Aesthetics Clinic, we have a few options to treat this problem.

One of the more common techniques and procedures involves our Fractional CO2 laser. Under topical anesthesia this laser is used to treat the loose skin and wrinkles of the neck  and chin by sending tiny beams of light into the damaged area producing new collagen and elastin while helping with anti-pigmentation and immediate tightening of the neck laxity. There are a few things to note when choosing this as a treatment. Generally, the Fractional CO2 treatment is completed in under an hour but will yield mild to significant downtime. Depending on the aggressiveness of your treatment you may need anywhere from two to ten days off of work. Your skin may feel sensitive and have a red pigmented and swollen appearance. This laser can provide significant improvement in the appearence and quality of neck rejuvenation. To learn more about how our Fractional CO2 laser works, click here.

Other treatments that can be combined with Fractional CO2 include dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic/Dysport®. When performed properly, patients receive instant gratification with fillers. Dermal fillers work by plumping up the area around the injection site giving you a more youthful appearance. They can be done within half an hour, and offer minimal down time. You’ll be asked to come in half an hour prior to your appointment to have the area being treated frozen with a topical cream. Fillers are temporary, meaning they will degrade or be absorbed over time. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers have compositions that offer results ranging between eight to twelve months. If you were choosing to pair dermal fillers with Fractional CO2, dermal fillers would be done after you recovered from your laser treatment.

BOTOX® Cosmetic/ Dysport® may be used to soften the neck lines that appear. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are neuromodulators that have the Filler27FrontalBeforeAfterability to temporarily relax muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract, and effectively smooth and reduce the appearance of lines. While both products share the active ingredient botulinum toxin, the protein structure is slightly different in Dysport®. There is no downtime associated with this procedure, and results can be expected to last anywhere between three-four months. Both treatments yield a very similar anti-aging results. At the time of your consultation, our physician will discuss which option is right for you.

Lip Augmentation Using Dermal Filler

Lip Filler

For many of us the thought of lip augmentation immediately bombards our thoughts with the negative stereotype associated with it. You  know what I’m talking about, those unnatural, over-sized lips no one would want. Ladies, it’s time to put those stereotypes aside and seriously consider this non-invasive cosmetic procedure!  At Dermaworks Medical Aesthetics Clinic, our physician knows that an overfilled, over-corrected lip never looks good. Her goal in lip augmentation is to give subtle, enhanced body to your lips, adding to the natural shape and size of your face.

At the time of your appointment, we will apply a topical freezing to the area being treated. our physician will then inject the filler into the lip area, instantly restoring your lip volume and smoothing away fine lines. This treatment can be done in as little as a half an hour and offers minimal downtown. After the treatment you may resume your regular activities. Keep in mind there may be mild swelling in the lips for a few days following the treatment.

When using Hyaluronic Acid injectables such as JUVÉDERM®, treatment generally lasts six to eights months. This is because the lips move more than any other facial component, and this causes the body to break down the filler more rapidly. Your lips will not look strange or deflated during this process. They will simply resume their previous shape and size.

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring sugar type substances found in our bodies that help to hydrate and add volume to your skin. In addition to their use as an aesthetic treatment, Hyaluronic Acid gels have also been used for more than 20 years for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement as well as for eye surgeries and wound repair.

Lip AugmentationThe lips are a central feature of the face. Natural and attractive-looking lips have much to do with the contour, volume and relative difference between the upper and lower lips. A key characteristic of beautiful lips is that they have a harmonious appearance and blend well with the rest of your face. For this reason it is sometimes recommended that one combines lip augmentation with other facial cosmetic treatments.

The characteristic and shape of the lips can be easily adjusted using dermal fillers. We create genuine-looking lips that maintain their natural feel. Whatever your situation, our physician will work with you to determine the most beneficial treatment available. Contact us today!
