Like everything else in life, skin changes. As we age, fine lines, wrinkles and other facial issues begin to cause us to wonder how they occurred — sometimes seemingly overnight. Because of a gradual loss of skin hydration and fat loss, tissue can begin to sag. Enter dermal fillers — something I heartily believe in to keep you looking great or even improve the way you look. Dermal fillers are essentially small injections of gel (typically made up of hyaluronic acid) that fill in wrinkles, add volume to soft tissue, or stimulate your own body to rebuild collagen. In addition to plumping up lips , I use dermal fillers in the jaw line to camouflage the jowls, correct the downturned corners of the mouth, fill in hollowed eyes, and even correct acne scarring. Fillers do more than fill in lines; they also lift by volumizing and when applied artfully can restore the effects of gravity on the soft tissue as you age. Judicious amounts of filler in key areas can also recontour the [...]
When researching the in-office cosmetic services to offer in my practice, I searched for non-invasive procedures to help with anti-aging around the face, neck and upper chest areas — places many of us find change somewhat disconcerting as we age. There are a number of therapies, all with varying degrees of effectiveness and longevity. But none impressed me more than Ultherapy, a unique treatment that uses ultrasound technology to target specific layers of the skin, delivering natural-looking results that actually improve over time. Unlike other methods that freeze or zap cells, Ultherapy uses high energy-focused ultrasound to target specific layers within the tissues. This encourages the skin’s natural healing process and stimulates collagen production, in turn lifting and tightening the skin in the neck, brow, cheeks (jowls) or décolletage. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive FDA-approved treatment to tighten the skin, and offers remarkable results with virtually no downtime. Since there is nothing like a first-hand account, I recently asked a patient to describe her Ultherapy experience. “I was told in no uncertain terms [...]
Turn back the clock and erase wrinkles, fine lines, age/sun spots, blemishes, freckles, moles, scars, and many other skin problems without disturbing or damaging skin tissue.

Facial fat loss is a normal effect of aging and can result in sunken cheeks, indentations, and hollow eyes. Sculptra® is a safe, synthetic, and biocompatible material that is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss.
As you age, muscle tone diminishes in the forehead causing your eyebrows to droop and making the eyes appear smaller, more tired or sleepier than they actually are. A forehead lift or browlift is an operation that raises the forehead skin and eyebrows for a fresh, youthful look.
To rejuvenate the lower face, a facelift procedure improves sagging facial skin, jowls, and loose neck skin by removing excess fat, tightening muscles, and redraping the skin. By lifting and tightening areas that are lax due to the natural aging process, one can gain a more rested and youthful appearance. Scars are hidden in the hairline and along the natural skin folds
An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, removes excess skin and/or fat resulting in a rejuvenated more alert and rested appearance.
Rhinoplasty is a surgery performed to correct external deformities of the nose and to improve the overall appearance. Septoplasty is the correction of the internal structures of the nose to correct nasal airway obstruction caused by deviation of the septum.
A strong chin can create an image of physical beauty. Receding chins will imbalance the lower third of the face and break up the harmony of the nose-lips-chin relationship from the side view. Adding a chin implant or shifting the jaw bone into a better position can redefine your chin to enhance your overall appearance.
