Facial folds and wrinkles are the result of a combination of aging, genetics and lifestyle. Excess sun exposure or smoking can accelerate the aging process and create additional furrows in the skin. Some wrinkles may be fine lines that can appear anywhere. They are frequently seen as “crosshatching” on the delicate skin beneath the eyes. Deeper wrinkles are more prominent, including forehead lines, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and furrow lines.
Wrinkle treatments can vary, depending on the number and severity of your wrinkles, as well as your aesthetic goals. Azouz Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery has several options for addressing your concerns.
Add Volume with a Facial Fat Transfer
A facial fat transfer, or fat graft, “fills” the area under the skin to create a smooth canvas. Unlike synthetic fillers, this all-natural option uses your body’s own tissue and cells to add volume where it is needed. By taking fat from one area of your body, processing it in a centrifuge and then injecting it underneath wrinkles in your face, you can restore a beautiful, youthful appearance.
Fat grafting can treat multiple types of wrinkles, including around the delicate eye area. Under eye fat grafting can treat crow’s feet and fine lines, while reducing the appearance of dark circles and eye bags. It can also successfully address early nasolabial folds, marionette lines and sagging jowls. With each of these treatments, fine lines and wrinkles in the surrounding areas are plumped and reduced.
Facelifts Are the Gold Standard for Wrinkle Treatment
When you have significant folds, creases and jowls, a facelift may be the best option for you. Today’s facelift procedures provide incredibly natural results. New techniques use fewer and smaller incisions and heal faster. Along with the expertise of Dr. Azouz’ skill and artistry, you will still look like you, only younger!
Following a thorough consultation and evaluation, Dr. Azouz will recommend a treatment that will achieve your goals. This may involve one or more procedures that can be done at the same time. By combining procedures, you only have one period of downtime, and your overall look will be symmetrical, proportionate and vibrant.
