The Way We Age
As the years pass, the human face loses bone density, collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The loss of bone density creates a hollowing of the eye area, as well as a reduction in jawline definition. The fat pads underneath our skin also begin to break apart and fall lower onto the face, causing nasolabial folds and a redistribution of face shape. Smoking and drinking, excessive sun exposure and stress, can all speed up the biological clock. However, of all these aging factors sun damage by UVR poses the greatest threat.
Softening the Signs of Aging
So what can we do to slow this process and repair some of the damage to our faces? There are many treatment options out there, including but not limited to dermal fillers, Botox®, and tissue tightening treatments. Traditionally, facial skin and tissue was tightened around the skull surgically, but as science evolves, surgery has become less and less necessary. With cutting edge technology, radiofrequency treatments have been found extremely effective in skin and tissue tightening.
Among the best performing treatments is the Profound RF, which combines radiofrequency to tighten the skin and underlying tissue of the face. Profound is a one time treatment, with 98% effectiveness in producing new collagen and elastin fibers, in addition to stimulation hyaluronic acid production – the only treatment of its kind to address all three of these youth building factors.
At Skin and Bone Docs, we incorporate the amazing results of the Profound treatment into our signature S&BD MILFL treatment.
This comprehensive signature treatment involves:
1. Profound RF. This is ONE treatment using microneedling with radiofrequency. This is the only treatment that can precisely stimulate the lower skin layer (dermis) to produce a maximum amount of all three skin fundamentals, which are COLLAGEN, ELASTIN AND HYALURONIC ACID.
2. The targeted neuromodulator injection of facial muscles that pull the skin at the jawline downwards. Neuromodulators reduce the activity of these muscles, which works synergistically with the effects of the Profound treatment for maximum results.
3. Revitalizing and collagen building chemical peels starting four weeks after the Profound treatment to further enhance the building of new skin elements.
4. Lastly, a personalized daily skin care regimen developed by scientists and clinically proven to deliver collagen building properties deep into the skin – every day after the Profound procedure.
The Many Benefits of Botox
All About Those Fillers
Dermal fillers restore skin hydrobalance and improve the skin structure and elasticity, as well as fill out wrinkles and folds and restore facial volume.
This hyaluronic acid filler has stood the test of time and is a favorite to smoothen smile lines and volumize lips.
restalyne refyne & defyne
Restylane Refyne and Defyne are next-generation hyaluronic acid dermal fillers designed to help support your skin while keeping you looking like you. These fillers are designed with XpresHAn Technology™ to help soften laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines).
We love these fillers since they can help you restore a more natural look to your face while maintaining your facial expressions. Based on their elasticity these fillers have a very natural, soft feel which makes them ideal for lip enhancements. We take a conservative approach when volumizing the lips aiming for a natural looking result and focus on highlighting the natural anatomical features: Cupid’s bow, lip border and pout.
This hyaluronic acid based dermal filler is a great solution to correct moderate to severe lines and wrinkles such as smile lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines).
Restylane Silk is a great filler for lip enhancements and the correction of perioral lines.
As we age, our cheek bones lose bone structure and the overlying soft tissue (both skin and fat pad tissue under the skin) lose volume. This causes the skin below to sag and push downward, which increase the appearance of the smile lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Instead of having a harmonic esthetically pleasing S-shaped curvature, the silhouette of the cheeks becomes flat. With a deep placement of Restylane Lyft, a phenomenal hyaluronic acid dermal filler, we can re-create this S-shaped curve and bring back the natural youthful appearance of your cheeks. By replacing volume in the midface (cheeks) the smile lines improve automatically and you may not need a separate injection. Restylane Lyft lasts for up to 18 months.
Belotero Balance is a great light dermal filler we absolutely love for our Aquagold treatments. Belotero is also hyaluronic acid based.
With this phenomenal treatment we use a unique broad spectrum applicator with an array of 20 24 karat gold micro channels thinner than human hair (there is not pain, bleeding, bruising or swelling). This applicator delivers small droplets of treatment solution directly into the skin, allowing for greater absorption of the active ingredients.
Our signature treatment solution formulation includes Belotero Balance (hyaluronic acid), Botox and vitamin C. The hyaluronic acid deeply hydrates the skin by biding water. The Botox is injected into the skin (not the muscle) which induces a reduction in pore size. The vitamin C has multiple beneficial effects, notably collagen production and reduction in pigment production.
