Juvederm and Restylane: Fillers are becoming more and more popular each and every year. Some of the most popular areas to have fillers are lips, nasolablia folds, under-eyes, and noses. Fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are ranked as most “worth it” treatments because they both add fullness instantly while lasting between 6 and 12 months.
Botox: Botox use between both men and women has increased dramatically and according to RealSelf is 95% “worth it”. Botox is an injection that temporarily paralyzes certain muscles in the face. It also helps prevent and correct fine lines and wrinkles in areas such as the forehead, glabella (between the brows), and crows feet.
HydraFacials: HydraFacial has one of the highest “worth it” ratings according to RealSelf at 97%. This unique facial is great for all skin types. It starts off by cleaning the face really well, then exfoliates the skin and extracts impurities. Lastly, it layers different antioxidants and peptides to address acne, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.
C02 Laser Treatments: A CO2 laser treatment (85% “worth it”) improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, lax skin, texture and uneven skin tone. It is a more invasive skin treatment that does require about 7-10 days of down-time but the results are consistently positive.
Facelifts: A facelift address the deep muscle tissue and excess skin in the mid to lower face. Patients on RealSelf give facelifts a 95% “worth it” rating. This surgical option is a great for patients who are concerned with laxity in the lower face and neck. The end result should be very natural and should leave the patient looking more youthful and refreshed when performed by the a skilled surgeon.
Rhinoplasties (Nose Job): Rhinoplasty surgery has a rating of 91% and is a good option for those that want to change the appearance of their nose. Some changes that can be made involve making the nose smaller, more symmetrical, eliminating bumps or humps, and/or reducing the size of the nostrils.
Blepharoplasty (Upper/Lower Eyelids): Many people say, “the eyes are the windows to the soul”. We often make judgements as to whether or not others are sad, tired, awake or happy. Upper and lower eyelid surgery (94% “worth it” rating) can correct both excess skin and under eye bags.
Chin Implant with and without submental liposuction: Chin implants are often done with submental liposuction but liposuction can also be done as a stand alone procedure depending on the patient and their specific concerns. A chin implant, with an approval of 88%, can improve a patients side profile and provide a stronger, more defined jaw line. Liposuction will take care of any submental fat that may need to be addressed and help define the jaw line as well.
Lip Lift: As we age, the area above the lip and below the nostrils tends to elongate. This area can be reduced by making a small “bull-horn” shaped incision under the nose to remove an appropriate amount of skin. This also tends to make the upper lip appear fuller with the use of injectables or implants. Lip lifts currently have an 89% “worth it” rating on RealSelf.com.
