As we age, facial contours change as a result of mechanical, biochemical, genetic, and environmental processes. These phenomena are noticed by ourselves and by others. Celebrities, including our current first lady, cannot avoid the aging process. Michelle Obama, who recently celebrated her 50th birthday, has had cosmetic procedures and plans to continue using Botox® cosmetic and perhaps having plastic surgery in the future. “Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves,” the first lady told People magazine.
We couldn’t agree more, Michelle. That’s our philosophy as well: doing whatever it is to make you feel beautiful. As women age, a common question asked is, “How do I restore my youth?” There are many ways to restore your beauty without surgery, although well planned and performed aesthetic procedures offer even more dramatic results.
Restoration of beautiful and/or youthful facial features by injection of fillers, neuromodulator(s), the use of laser, light, and radiofrequency techniques are often used by Dr. Laverson in our Encinitas office. FDA approved cosmetic injectables and energy sources can relax muscles that cause aging wrinkles, fill and smooth existing wrinkles, tighten skin, remove excess or sagging fat, and resurface your complexion to restore youthful allure and glow.
