As much as there is to gain throughout life, there are also losses. With age, you have gained wisdom and insights that only life could teach you. Simultaneously, your body has lost collagen structure and the energy that is required for cellular regeneration. Ultimately, we all tend to lose that youthful vibe we grew to love and appreciate during early adulthood. The fortunate aspect of getting older today is that we can have the best of both worlds. If you’ve resolved to get back a bit of your youthful appearance, we have multiple ways to help you.
Usually, when a person has reached the point where they want to reconnect with their younger self, they appreciate fast results. There is value on the various short-term fixes available today. Injectables like Botox and dermal fillers are immediately affordable. They are convenient; just drive to our Cincinnati office and get treated. They are effective and safe. This makes injectables nearly perfect. The only potential downside is that the results achieved are temporary. Wrinkle-reduction with Botox lasts an average of four months. Dermal fillers, depending on the type and where they are used, can last up to two years.
You might expect us to jump to cosmetic surgery and the permanent improvements that can be achieved with procedures like blepharoplasty or a facelift. Actually, we want to touch on the middle ground. From our experience, we see the benefits of midline treatments; those that work differently than injectables but aren’t as aggressive as surgery. In our office, patients appreciate the results they can achieve with treatments like:
•Microneedling, a collagen induction treatment that encourages the dermis to rejuvenate itself by creating micro-wounds that heal almost immediately.
•Plasma Pen affects the fibroblasts that make collagen. In a short treatment session, this technique creates micro-wounds at the precise depth needed to rebuild a tighter, smoother foundation for the skin.
•PDO Thread Lift treatment can be completed on your lunch hour with nothing more than local anesthetic and a discerning eye. This innovative treatment involves surgical sutures around which superficial tissue adheres. The direction of insertion is performed to gently and naturally lift the skin to appear smoother and younger. Additionally, before the sutures naturally dissolve, their presence provokes a strong response in which collagen remodeling occurs.
