The signs of aging can cause volume loss in the facial area, which is combined with skin laxity that contributes to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. These can cause patients to look older than they are or feel, and can contribute to reduced self-confidence and self-esteem. With surgical and nonsurgical facial procedures, Dr. Joseph C. Berardi can help patients regain their youthful look once again! While the traditional facelift is the most effective way of addressing severe skin laxity, there are other nonsurgical or less invasive options for patients to consider. Below are just a few of the treatments we offer here at the practice of Dr. Joseph C. Berardi.
- The mid-facelift – the mid-facelift procedure is a unique procedure that is dedicated to addressing sagging skin around the cheeks, eyes, and brow area. It is less invasive than a full, traditional facelift but can also provide a more youthful end result. This treatment can be combined with others for more dramatic but natural-looking results.
- Fat injections – if volume loss in the face is a more significant concern, fat injections may be recommended by Dr. Joseph C. Berardi. Fat injections remove unwanted fat from one area of the body and use the fat cells to replace volume in the cheek area. Fat injections can also be used in addressing significant wrinkles and folds that are impacting one’s overall appearance.
- Botox – Botox injections have been used for years in enhancing one’s appearance. Botox is a medication that is used in reducing muscle contractions. In doing so, it smooths wrinkles and folds, specifically the lines between the eyebrows, forehead folds, and the creases around the eyes called “crow’s feet.”
- Dermal fillers – in addition to Botox injections, we also have dermal fillers. These are hyaluronic acid fillers that are injected into wrinkles and folds and smooth them for many months before reinjection is needed. This is a great starter injection for younger patients who are interested in combating the signs of aging as they occur.
