Minimally Invasive Facial Rejuvenation in NYC
Minimally invasive or non-surgical treatments of varying degrees of complexity are being done earlier to achieve a desired appearance, to maintain a youthful look, and to avoid the more drastic changes of cosmetic surgery after significant aging changes have already progressed. In this manner we can maintain a consistently rejuvenated face for longer. The goal of cosmetic procedures should be to achieve a natural looking, aesthetically appealing appearance without the telltale signs of intervention.
In an article entitled "Today's Dermal Fillers", Dr. Forley noted, "Sunken cheeks and temples can produce a drawn and tired appearance and a seeming lack of vitality. In addition to smoothing wrinkles, Sculptra replaces lost facial fullness caused by aging and skin laxity. We can customize a Sculptra treatment to the individual patient to fill volume deficiencies in a way that restores broad areas of lost facial volume, enhances the cheek area, and eliminates depressions around the mouth. Particularly in patients who are not surgical candidates, Sculptra provides a means to achieve a rejuvenating effect on facial appearance without using the scalpel."
In an article entitled "The New Therapy Landscape", Dr. Forley commented on the use of Fraxel laser and Botox. "If I am treating someone with (fractional resurfacing) laser rejuvenation and they have got intense frown lines or smile lines, and I can reduce those with Botox before doing the laser, it helps rejuvenate the skin into a much smoother state."
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an excellent choice in areas of the face where muscle contraction can be modified to achieve the desired effect of smoothing of the overlying wrinkled skin with maintenance of normal facial expression. There is an increasing realization that the changes we perceive as aging are due to an inadequate volume of facial soft tissue or displacement of existing soft tissue volume especially in the cheeks and in areas around the eyes, mouth, and jawline. These changes occur due to migration of the facial tissues as a result of gravity and the loss of skin elasticity. Diminished projection of facial contours produces an aged appearance. Non-surgical volume expansion with tissue fillers has been utilized to augment, to camouflage, to conceal, and thus to rejuvenate in a minimally invasive manner. In many cases, a youthful appearance can be achieved by lifting with volume replacement, rather than with surgery.
Dr. Forley is a leading injector of BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers, which are often used together to achieve the desired result.
