Recent technological advancements are making it possible to gently lift and contour a face that may currently look tired, gaunt, or haggard. Medical breakthroughs in products such as Radiesse®, JUVEDERM® and others are providing longer lasting and more cost effective results. A small but growing number of dermatologists and plastic surgeons who specialize in dermal filler and BOTOX® Cosmetic procedures are developing advanced techniques to lift and contour facial features without surgery. This section details advances in non surgical facial contouring techniques.
The past 5 years have seen an explosion in the popularity of non surgical aesthetic procedures in the United States. Aesthetic cosmetic medical procedures have become increasingly mainstream, resulting in the development and FDA approval of more advanced products to change the aging face into a healthier, more vibrant youthful face. This section explains in detail each of the more advanced products now used for liquid face lifts, non surgical facelifts, facial contouring, facial rejuvenation and wrinkle correction.
In addition to BOTOX® and Dysport®, several advanced, FDA-approved dermal fillers are now in use for wrinkle correction and facial rejuvenation. Each dermal filler has unique attributes and requires subtle variations in injection technique to optimize results. An individual’s unique facial characteristics, skin conditions and correction needs will determine which products and procedures should be used for superior outcomes. This section will discuss many of the subtle, but important, variations of techniques and products that you should know about.
