Happy YOU Year

With the turn of the New Year, it’s time to say “Happy YOU Year!”. With the New Year comes resolutions which unfortunately for most can quickly fade into well meaning memories. Why not act on it and make a statement for 2014? With several quick fixes available, you will be able to impress everyone and turn heads immediately.

What is the key ingredient in a youthful face? Most people would answer tight smooth skin. And while great skin is important, it is worthless if it has nothing underneath. The most important elements of a youthful face are volume and shape which we can now achieve with some of the new fillers when used properly.

While no filler can replace the amazing results that can be achieved with surgery, such as facelift, we can still do some amazing things just by replacing volume. Dr. Core now offers JUVÉDERM VOLUMA, the newest filler, which is essentially a longer lasting JUVÉDERM®. Dr. Core uses this volumizing injection to restore and add fullness to the face. By restoring lost volume, the face appears fuller, rounder, smoother and more youthful.

In addition, some old standby fillers like Sculptra, Restylane®, and Prevelle Silk still play important roles in specific situations:

JUVÉDERM® can be used to restore lost facial volume, add contour to the face, and for fill in deep lines and wrinkles. Typically, JUVÉDERM® injections take thirty minutes, and Dr. Core can smooth out wrinkles and creases while improving the appearance of hollowness in the cheeks, often offering dramatic results. Even better, JUVÉDERM® can last up to nine months, reducing the number of treatments needed overtime.

Restylane® is another great option to enhance your facial appearance. This product is identical to hyaluronic acid, a natural compound found in our bodies. It is applied with a fine need and can smooth out lines, shape facial contours, and even sculpt the lips. Like BOTOX®, this treatment only takes around an hour and can be performed over your lunch break.

BOTOX®, the world’s most popular cosmetic procedure, can provide results to lessen the appearance of those fine lines a wrinkles in a fairly time. Between work and home, stress can take a toll on your skin, and your face is often the first to show it. BOTOX® can temporarily eliminate these wrinkles and fine lines to create a smoother, more rested and youthful appearance. This treatment takes less than an hour to perform and noramally has with little downtime after; therefore, you can have BOTOX® over your lunch break.

For those who are looking to rejuvenate and restore a more refreshed appearance to the face, MicroLaserPeel® is perfect. Taking only about 15 to 30 minutes, the MicroLaserPeel® is quick and easy. Results typically take around three to four days to appear but can renew your skin with minimal downtime and beautiful results.

Dr. Core has been shaping faces with fillers since 1998 and has extensive experience with all agents. He uses his own personal injection techniques to minimizes pain and bruising and help you look your best.
