Gravity can make us look so very different than we feel! Have you seen a photo of yourself or passed a mirror and thought ‘Who is that?’ Many have the habit of lifting just slightly on the upper cheek and restoring their reflection to a face they are familiar with.
After ten years of working with women and men on their appearance, we have some great simple tools to help restore a more youthful look. For those of you who fear botulinum toxin(i.e.Botox/Dysport) this anti-gravity procedure uses hyaluronic acid, a natural substance already present in your system.
When assessing an aging face, most people look at their lower face and see jowls(a squaring of the jawline), nasolabial folds( lines between the nose and the corner of the mouth) and marionette lines( lines from the corners of the mouth to the edges of the chin). These are symptoms of gravity and facial volume loss. The true cause is a loss of upper face volume, particularly the cheeks.
Look in a mirror. Smile. Do you see a radiant ‘apple’ of the cheeks when you smile? Is it lost without the smile? Have you noticed a hallowing under the eyes? Restoring the upper face volume can give a very natural rejuvenation that can take years off your appearance.
The results have been shown to last a minimum of a year. There is no down time although bruising is a possibility. During the month of March we are offering a special of $100 off this procedure. There is an additional $100 available in rebates. You are invited to schedule a consultation to have an individualized assessment.
