From Degeneration to De-Aging
By Dr. Bonnie Marting, DNP, APRN
Unless you are a photographer, makeup artist, actor, or a practitioner of aesthetic medicine, you may not understand the power of the midface, or the location of the cheeks. As we age (or as I prefer to say “move along in life”), multiple changes are occurring in our appearance. They happen, in most cases, so gradually that it is not noticed until one day when you look in the mirror and think, “Wow! This isn’t me!” Let’s take a look as to what is actually happening to us and how we can remedy the situation.
When we are born, we have an abundance of facial fat, great brand-new collagen, and bones that are ready to grow and expand into the presentation that we will begin to see in our teens. Unfortunately, once we hit our 30s, our bones have stopped growing and the process of bone remodeling has been going on. Bone is taken and deposited throughout our lives. By our 40s, this phenomenon this becoming noticeable. The reason that we notice it in our face is because there is no way to encourage remodeling in the skull. Due to exercise and resistance in all other areas, most bones remodel by adding bone as needed. Think of the spine, the hips, and the leg bones. Resistance encourages remodeling.
The fat departments in the face also begin to deteriorate. Most pointedly the superficial fat department in the midface. This is where the signs of aging are becoming obvious. The beauty of today is that we have the ability to treat this area with specialized and specifically manufactured products for this area. Juvéderm Voluma is one of these particular products. Restylane Lyft, Revance’s RH4, and the newly available Restylane Contour, are also indicated for this specialized area and perform brilliantly. The transformation is subtle, positive, immediate, and youthfully beautiful.
Even better news: The treatment is fast, easy, and rarely bruises. You can be transformed in as little as 30 minutes. You can schedule a consultation with me at The Anushka Cosmedical Centre by calling 561.820.8055.
