Dermal fillers are intended to help eliminate lines, wrinkles and folds caused by the loss of facial volume as we age. There are a number of treatments that can be used to combat this. Dr. Plant will personally consult you to determine what treatment would be the most effective to slow the signs of aging.
Botox® Cosmetic or Botox, is a non-surgical way of treating wrinkles between the eyes, on the forehead and crow’s feet. Over the years, concentrating or frowning can cause folds and furrows around your eyes or between your eyebrows. Dr. Plant will inject Botox® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity level of these muscles.
As we make expressions, our facial muscles move or contract, often causing wrinkles or facial folds. For those who wish to improve those wrinkles, Dysport® may be able to help. Similar to BOTOX®, Dysport® is an injectable that temporarily weakens contracting muscles, smoothing out facial wrinkles or folds.
If you were born with thin lips or if your lips have thinned due to aging, lip enlargement or enhancement may be the answer. It’s a simple procedure where natural or synthetic fillers are injected into your lips, so they look plump for several months. Another option is a surgical procedure that uses an implant for permanent results. Depending on your needs, Dr. Plant may use implants, injections, or grafting to add volume and shape to the colored area of your lips.
Hands, in addition to the face and neck, are the parts of the body that truly show your age. Over time, your hands are typically exposed to the elements which take their toll on the skin. Age and genetics also contribute to a loss of volume and a thinning of the skin resulting in a papery appearance. Veins in your hands can become noticeable as tissue volume naturally decreases.
