It may be exercising to get healthy, resolving to eat better, losing weight, or softening the lines or wrinkles that make you look older than you feel.
For example, certain lines that develop on the face imply emotions of anger or grumpiness, even in those with the most cheerful of dispositions. The furrows (sometimes called 11’s) between the eyebrows and the down-turning of the corner of the mouth are two of the biggest culprits. Botox is the gold standard for treating these areas and restoring an open, happy expression. Botox works by allowing the muscles underneath the skin to relax thereby resting the skin itself and allowing broken collagen to repair. If lines are very deep, a filler like Juvederm can be placed into the wrinkle to help minimize the depression. If your face has begun to lose fullness, Sculptra or Voluma may be the right option for you to begin your New Year New You journey.The basic motivation for the New Year New You-inspired “tune up” is generally a simple one. People want to look and feel better. Since our true image is on the inside, softening some of the signs of aging on the outside helps to give people a sense of “oneness” back. This generally results in people who feel happier about themselves- not a bad way to start a new year!
If your once bright eyes are now overshadowed by drooping eyelids, or bulging “bags,” you may want to consider discussing eyelid surgery. Other procedures like facial liposuction, ThermiRF and facelift surgery can help with significantly relaxed facial skin, jowls, and double chins. Dr. Maloney will use computer imaging, during your personalized consultation, to show you the options best suited to your own goals.
For some people, making a change doesn’t have anything to do with the ravages of aging. For a lot of people their New Year New you has to do with genetics. Genetics has dealt them a feature that cannot be changed by exercise or diet. For some, their noses, weak chins, or “turkey” necks have detracted from their other features making them self- conscious about their appearance for a very long time. It is truly rewarding to help these patients restore a sense of confidence and self-esteem.
If 2015 is the year for a New Year New YOU, call and schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Maloney to explore your options.
