There are medical ways
of approaching it, and also surgical
ways. The medical are things like
Retin A, tretinoin, to improve the overall
texture and complexion of the skin.
In the office we do things, we offer
chemical peels, fillers, and things like
different types of botulinum toxin
treatments. Overall,
as everybody ages, their
face changes. It used to be, when you
were 20, 25 years old, people have a full,
what people associate with a healthy
looking face. And as you get older,
the face shrinks, it gets smaller, there's
a shifting, and we do things in order to
get rid of either
simple lines, or fill things
up where people get thinner,
they have an inversion
of, you know, the cheeks go in,
sometimes they develop jowls,
and the entire idea is to make it look
more like they did years ago. It's not
going to go 20 years back, but with
these treatments you can make it easily
look five years younger.
It can be the type
of thing where if somebody looks at you,
you no longer have a depression on
the side of the face which catches
a shadow and brings out areas which you'd
rather not be highlighted. Generally most
people don't begin looking intensely
until mid to late 30s, it's variable,
I have patients come in anywhere between
25 to 85, I'd say average tends to be
people in their 40s to 60s.
