One of the most frequently requested areas of treatment is the nasal labial fold. People are often under the impression that if we fully correct that area, the smile line extending from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth, they will look younger. That is a misconception, the nasal labial fold is a natural feature that we are all born with. Look at a young child, even a new born and you will see that soft line extending from the corner of the nose to the side of the mouth. Children are full in the temple, lateral cheek and lower face. It is that youthful fullness and proportions that we recreate with skillfully placed dermal fillers. Children also have a slight depression under their eyes (known as the tear trough area). Overcorrection of that area can also look unnatural.
Beginning in our thirties the structure of our face starts to shift; the fat pads in our mid and lower face start to lose volume and fall downward, our production of hyaluronic acid decreases and the collagen/fiber matrix of our skin starts to unravel. All this leads to the development of deep and fine lines, lose of definition and structure, and the development of hollows and shadowing. All those changes lead to an aged and fatigued appearance.
Trained and artistic injectors understand the many layers of aging that are simultaneously occurring under the skin's surface and how to correct them. It is about creating a natural, refreshed appearance, through strategically placing dermal fillers to lift, volumize, restore structure and the feature's of youth. With dermal fillers we can treat the upper face, temple hollowing and increased deepening of the undereye area, the midface by restoring youthful fullness to the lateral and mid cheek area, and the lower face through treating the jawline, chin and lip area.
Botox is dermal fillers best friend and will enhance any dermal filler treatment. Botox can be used throughout the entire face to soften forehead lines, lift the brow, diminish vertical lip line, decrease jowling and tighten the neck. We are looking forward to working with you to create an individualized treatment plan based on your aesthetic goal to age successfully.
