Smile Lines Treatment
When you smile, the groove between your nose and cheeks is accentuated as muscles lift your cheeks and lips. For younger people, the skin quickly snaps back after a smile, leaving a smooth surface. As you age and your skin loses collagen and elasticity, gravity begins to pull the skin and underlying structures downward. Lacking the structural components to plump out the face, the excess skin moves forward, creating a deep crease from the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth.
Dr. Azouz offers smile lines treatment to remove nasolabial folds and recontour your features. Mild cases can be addressed with fat grafting, also called facial fat transfer.
Deeper nasolabial folds require a more robust treatment plan and surgical intervention. Dr. Azouz can discuss the best type of facelift for your unique needs. A benefit of the facelift is it addresses multiple aging concerns at one time.
Treatments for Crow’s Feet
Crow’s feet begin as small wrinkles at the corner of your eyes when you smile or laugh. With age, the lines lengthen, deepen and show even when your face is at rest. Crow’s feet are extremely difficult to hide, even behind glasses. Although they are viewed as a positive feature in the early stages – indicating a lot of laughter and smiling, they are less welcome when the etch themselves into your facial canvas.
Crow’s feet can occur early in the aging process, as the skin around your eyes is very delicate. This makes it more susceptible to wrinkling and lines. Since they usually occur at a younger age, if they are your only concern, you likely do not need a facelift to correct them. Facial fat transfer, or fat grafting, provides a natural filler to create volume under the skin, smoothing out the lines. The procedure also addresses dark circles and eye bags, restoring your youthful appearance.
Safe, All-Natural Fat Grafting in Dallas
Facial fat transfer uses a small cannula to take fat from one area of your body and inject it into another spot. After extraction, the fat is spun in a centrifuge, and the precious adipose and stem cells are placed in the areas which require volume.
This natural filler process requires a skilled surgeon who is intimately familiar with the procedure. Dr. Azouz only uses fat grafting to plump and rejuvenate the skin because he believes it produces the best outcomes for his patients.
