When you look in the mirror, does it seem like your face is falling down? Do you see deep lines where there were none before? Maybe it looks like all your facial volume is now around your jawline, and you are starting to see subtle jowling.

Would you like to look younger naturally – turn the clock back a few years, and look fresh and young on Zoom calls?

You are probably wondering how and when this happened—the changes seem to have appeared overnight. However, it has been happening gradually over the years.

Facial aging is the natural process by which the face changes over time, resulting in wrinkles, lines, and other visible signs of aging. This process is influenced by a number of factors, including genetics, sun exposure, smoking stress, and lifestyle choices.

As we age, the skin loses elasticity and firmness, which can lead to sagging and wrinkles. The production of collagen and elastin, two key proteins that keep the skin smooth and supple, decrease over time. Additionally, the underlying fat and muscle in the face may shift or diminish, which can change the contours of the face and create hollows or lines.

So what’s holding you back from treatment?

Many people have fears and misconceptions about seeking cosmetic treatment. You may be worried that you will need invasive surgery, such as a facelift, to resolve the problem. You might fear looking unnatural or fake. You may worry about the safety, discomfort, side effects, or long term effects. Some people believe that cosmetic treatment is for people that are much older, or are concerned about side effects such as downtime or bruising. Some people are fearful about what is actually being put in your body – that it might be a toxin that will have long-term effects.

The good news is that we have a solution to your problem!

Full facial balancing with dermal fillers is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting fillers into various areas of the face to restore volume, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve overall facial contours. Dermal Fillers are typically made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and plump up the skin.

The treatment typically involves a series of injections into various areas of the face, including the cheeks, lips, chin and under-eyes. The injections are performed by a trained and licensed medical professional.

The goal of full facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers is to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance by restoring volume to areas that have lost it due to aging. The results can be subtle or dramatic, depending on the patient’s goals and the amount of filler used.

These are the benefits of full facial balancing:

  • Improved facial contours and symmetry
  • Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Increased volume in the cheeks and lips
  • Improved under-eye appearance
  • Results that typically last for months to years, depending on the filler used.

The safety of these products has stood the test of time. The FDA approved hyaluronic fillers in 2000, and they have been used safely for over twenty years. Many studies of up to 4,000 individuals who received dermal filler injections found that HA fillers are effective and safe.

As with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects to consider. It’s important to discuss the risks and benefits of full facial balancing with a qualified medical professional before deciding if it’s the right choice for you.
