With age comes a number of developments. Some are very welcomed, like wisdom and perspective. Other developments of age involve our appearance, and may be viewed as somewhat of a “downside to aging.” When the skin changes in ways that you would prefer to avoid, your experienced physician can help. Whether it is a furrowed brow, sagging eyelids, or crow’s feet that is concerning you, anti-aging treatments like Botox and injectable fillers provide an excellent solution. Huntington physician Roger Koreen has been using such modalities for several years and continues to achieve gorgeous results for his patients.
Botox is the injectible that is most commonly used to treat concerns on the forehead and around the eyes. This medication, a purified protein, is applied into contracted muscles. Inhibiting the transmission of commands for contraction, Botox relieves chronic tension and allows the overlying skin to become smoother. The subsequent reduction of lines, wrinkles, and furrows rejuvenates the entire face.
In some instances, Botox may be the sole form of treatment for the desired result. Full facial rejuvenation that involves the restoration of healthy contouring may be best achieved with the precise combination of Botox and injectable fillers such as Juvéderm™. The different medications perform completely different actions in the skin and thus make the perfect pairing when advanced signs of aging have developed.
The Botox Cosmetic injectible is used to relax the muscles often used during expression. Fillers are formulated to replace volume that is gradually lost with the passing of years. Volume loss eventually affects the cheeks, chin, and jowls, reducing the angular definition seen in a young face. As much as a teaspoon of fluids and fatty tissue may be lost each year, adding up to sagging jowls and flat cheeks. Using precise technique and the right dosage, Dr. Koreen beautifully restores angles and curves as they need to be for a healthier, more energetic appearance.
