Facial Aging Treatment Philosophies


People have different philosophies on how they actively manage facial aging. Some wait longer until they are much older, preferring to allow more significant age related changes to occur prior to treatment. This group will likely need surgical intervention such as a facelift to achieve their desired improvement which will be a more dramatic change. They may prefer to wait, not wanting to have regular "maintenance" visits.

Others prefer to start treatment earlier prior to severe aging changes with BOTOX, fillers, and other non invasive treatments such as Ulthera. These patients desire to maintain a fresh, youthful look throughout their years with more subtle improvements.

It is relevant to note that there is no "right or wrong" with either approach, but it's important to understand which each type of treatment can and will achieve for each individual.
