Combining Procedures for Maximum Effect Bloomfield
All too often we underestimate the value of starting small. Keeping up with the aging process does not start with a facelift. There are a myriad of things we can do to help prevent the rapid signs of aging.
Clinical skincare is always a good place to start when looking for ways to improve your appearance. This should not be confused with a “facial” delivered in most spas which can be a relaxing experience, but does little to reverse or prevent further aging of the skin. It is essential to use the proper concentrations of restoring fruit acids in the least irritating formulations. The Peels should be done in a medical setting and can be enhanced by a properly performed Microdermabrasion. By taking proper care of your skin everyday, you can create a healthy foundation from which to build a plan for subtle improvements.
Many of these procedures can be further enhanced when done in combination with each other. For example, Botox® is very effective for the treatment of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead furrows. These are the lines that are created by the contraction of muscles during normal facial expression. The results from Botox® are impressive. Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions. Botox® will not poison you. It will not leave you with an expressionless face. And no, your eyes will not stay open when you are sleeping. Botox® should be administered in a medical setting and preferably by a physician who understands the actions of the various muscle groups.
Wrinkles that are not associated with muscle activity will not respond to Botox®. These wrinkles require filler materials. Photorejuvenation (Intense pulse light and WrinkleLight) is a recent breakthrough that further enhances the combination procedures by evening the skin tones, stimulating the elastic fibers and thickening existing collagen. A series of treatments are generally required and has the distinct advantage of no down-time.
With so many things offered to improved your appearance, it can be overwhelming. The right combination in experienced hands can be life changing and minimally invasive with little to no downtime.
When viewing the face, as an example, we look at the surface damage/aging, the lack of volume in certain areas and dynamic versus static creases.
Botox is great for the dynamic lines of the forehead, glabella, crow’s feet and lips. Fillers are used to create a more youthful volumized face particularly in the cheeks, arches, nasolabial folds and lips. Microdermabrasion in combination with Micro needling and serum infusion helps to reverse the age and damage of the skin. Intense Pulse Light therapy reduces the age spots and spider veins.
The combination of the procedures is powerful and will give you maximum effects and we have proven this to be safe with 30 years of experience.
The Youthful Images Revitalize Lift provides multiple procedures at one visit. We begin with the Microdermabrasion with Micro Needling of serums into the skin. Next we proceed with the Intense Pulse Light treatment. This is followed by filler to address the volume deficits and finally Botox to treat the dynamic creases.
The results are amazing and you will see a younger you within days.
And these combinations are not limited to the face. Don’t forget about your neck, chest and hands.
