Wrinkles are a product of a life well-lived. But they don't have to be.
Fine lines, thinner skin, crow's feet... as we age, these signs of our life inevitably imprint themselves on our faces. They betray our youthful inner self, that voice inside us that continues to embrace life and adventure. Our hearts are still young, but our faces tell a different tale.
Your heart may be telling you that it's time to soften your lines — those living lines that are a part of life, but perhaps not your favorite part. At Meadows Surgical Arts, we can help! Let us help you smooth and soften those lines and look like yourself again.
And if you are still amongst the young, and the signs of age are very few, you can delay those living lines for a good long while with a bit of prevention.
How can I smooth out the lines around my eyes and/or brow/forehead?
BOTOX® is an injectable treatment for wrinkle protection and skin tightening. It is inserted into your muscles to temporarily smooth the lines around the sides of your eyes (“crow’s feet”), between your brows (“frown lines”), and on your forehead. It targets one of the underlying causes of those lines: muscle contractions from squinting, frowning, and raising the eyebrows. BOTOX temporarily reduces this muscle activity, so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines. You’ll still be expressive, and you’ll look like yourself… just a smoother version.
How long does the treatment take?
BOTOX treatment takes approximately 10 minutes, and requires no downtime or recovery (it’s often called a “lunchtime procedure”), so you can get in, get out, and get on with your day.
What about all the other lines on my face — how can I smooth those out?
Sunning, sipping, smooching, and smiling. Chewing, chatting, chuckling, and cheering. Living lines are a part of aging. When all your living starts lining up, it’s time to think about filling those lines in. Fillers such as JUVÉDERM®, VOLUMA®, VOLBELLA®, and VOLLURE® are designed to restore the natural fullness of your skin, smoothing out those lines that may have started to form around your cheeks, mouth and lips. Treatment with fillers takes a little longer, around 15-60 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated.
How do I know which products should be used?
Lines of expression that appear when we smile or show emotion need BOTOX:
Crow's feet at the corner's of the eyes;
Frown lines between the brows; and
Forehead lines that appear when eyebrows are raised.
Nasolabial folds that extend from the edges of the nose to the corners of the mouth;
Marionette lines that extend from the edges of the mouth downwards towards the jaw; and
Lip lines, also called lipstick lines, smoker's lines, or vertical lines, that extend outwards from the lips.
Areas in the mid-face or cheek area that have lost volume need VOLUMA:
cheek lines from sleeping on the front or side; and
loss of cheek volume.
For moderate to severe facial lines, VOLLURE will give a softer, smoother contour.
This is what 2 syringes of JUVÉDERM can do… take your lips from lovely to LUSCIOUS!
