For many seasoned adults, the New Year comes with resolutions to eat, feel, and look better by optimizing physical health and learning to effectively treat aging skin. The Houston Center for Facial Plastic Surgery can help make this your best year yet, by providing interested patients with skincare knowledge and 3 of the best anti-aging skin care treatments available today.

#1        Botox Injections

Botox® is the ideal prescription for forehead furrows, frown lines, and crow’s feet. It is a neurotoxin that works by attaching itself to the nerve endings in and around the injection site, and blocking the release of neurotransmitters that cause muscle contractions. Because the facial muscles are weakened by Botox, it may take a week or more to see full results, and effects can last up to 6 months. Botox is proven safe for most patients; whether they want to fight wrinkles or take a proactive stance against early signs of aging, it’s perfect for getting rid of and preventing facial wrinkles and/or lines caused by underlying muscle contractions.

#2        Ultherapy Treatments

The newly FDA approved ultrasound technology of the Ultherapy® treatment procedure is now proven to help fight the earliest signs of aging skin, and leaves patients with a youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Ultherapy is unique as it works by penetrating the deep inner surfaces of the skin to noticeably lift and tighten the wrinkles and sags that have begun to appear on the face. Fine lines, wrinkles, and dark areas around the face diminish and smooth out, providing patients with a younger appearance without a full facelift procedure. Results last up to a year; however, it may not be for everyone, so be sure to consult with Dr. Patt when considering this safe and effective solution to treating aging skin.

#3        Juvederm

This and other dermal fillers instantly erase wrinkles around the nose and mouth. With a single treatment, patients can get natural-looking results that can last up to a year. Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler injection that erases folds and wrinkles in the skin. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, with the primary function of absorbing and binding water. Juvederm corrects age-related skin wrinkling by restoring the skin’s hyaluronic acid content, plumping the skin and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. Smoother, suppler skin results are immediate, and can last up to a year with a single treatment.

At the start of a New Year, you can start looking as young as you feel by consulting with Dr. Patt about these, and many other, effective treatments for aging skin. To schedule a consultation, contact the Houston Center for Facial Plastic Surgery today at (281) 649-7170.
