THE TOP 4 COSMETIC PROCEDURES YOU SHOULD BE DOING AFTER 40
- Posted on: Mar 24 2015
By age forty, we know who we are, have accomplished many goals and are wise enough to accept that we will no longer look twenty. It becomes important to be diligent about caring for our skin and to schedule routine skin checks with a dermatologist, Fortunately, advances in technology and skin care options make it possible to delay the appearance of aging skin and to keep our skin looking and feeling more youthful and healthy.
We all age differently- some faster than others due to our lifestyle, environment, level of sun exposure, and our overall health and our skin care regimens. While there is no one answer to the aging equation, the Asarch Center recommends 4 procedures to turn back the clock. When used with DermaSpa Rx Skin Nutrition, Dr. Richard Asarch’s proprietary formulas, these non-surgical cosmetic procedures help you regain your youthful profile, boost skin firmness and prevent future signs of aging.
ULTHERAPY – If you have started to notice some sagging on your neck and under your chin, your cheeks, the corners of your mouth and around your eyes, or on your chest and décolleté, now is the time to look into Ultherapy. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure to tighten and lift skin on the neck, décolleté and under the chin. Ultherapy uses ultrasound waves, called Ulthera, for cosmetic improvement of the skin, working deep below the surface-without harming the outer layer of skin-for firming, tightening and lifting. Improvements include a sleeker, more defined jawline and tighter skin on the neck under the chin. Sagging skin on the cheeks can be tightened and lifted, which in turn can improve folds from the nose to mouth, folds from the mouth to jaw, and drooping corners of the mouth. Tightening of skin on the forehead can reduce the sagging skin on the eyelids and promote a more open, refreshed look in general. Overall improvements in skin texture and evenness of color — as well as strengthening and adding more collagen cushion can be additional benefits.
The Asarch Center received the Ultherapy Ultra Premiere Treatment Provider Award for 2014 & 2015. The Asarch Center is one of the top providers for Ultherapy procedures in the Denver area.
BOTOX® JUVEDERM® AND VOLUMA™XC – The loss of the volume you once had in your face can lead to sagging and deeper wrinkles, making you look older. Injectable facial fillers are often used to fill lines around the mouth and nose and restore volume to the cheeks. These injections fill the wrinkle or depression in the skin, giving you a more youthful look for a fraction of the cost of a face lift. Also called dermal fillers, facial fillers often contain collagen or hyaluronic acid that is injected into a specific area of the face with a needle.
“Many of my patients complain about deep lines or depressions where the cheeks meet the upper lip in the bottom half of their faces. As cheek skin sags, it rests against skin around the mouth, producing a deep wrinkle that makes you look years older.”– Dr. Richard Asarch
What is the difference between a facial filler and Botox?
Unlike Botox, injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, facial fillers fill in the line or crease of wrinkles with one of several different substances. Doctors use fillers like hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyl apatite, human engineered collagen, your own fat, or bio-polymer hybrids to soften deep lines.
At Asarch Center we offer both JUVEDERM® and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC which work to enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, smooth wrinkles and improve the appearance of recessed scars. JUVÉDERM is used to smooth out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.
VOLUMA – Adds volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle
lift and more youthful appearance. BOTOX® is a procedure to smooth expression lines and prevent the deepening of existing wrinkles. Many wrinkles are actually creases that have been worn into the skin by making the same expression thousands of times. These “expression lines”, which can show up on your forehead, between your eyebrows, and around your eyes and mouth, are due to the contraction of a muscle under the skin in that area. BOTOX is a purified protein toxin which has no serious side effects when used correctly in a medical setting. A few drops of BOTOX are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle that creates a wrinkle. When BOTOX is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and, as a result, the muscle weakens. As the muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear. The results last about three months.
