How to Look Younger This New Year

New Year Beauty TipsApproximately 40 to 50 percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions, and many of them are related to health, wellness and personal appearance. If one of your resolutions is to look younger and feel more confident in 2016, the team at the Plastic Surgery Group of New Jersey can help. We offer a full range of treatment options to help take years off of your appearance. The best part: none of the suggested treatments require surgery. You can see results quickly and without extensive downtime.

Reduce Noticeable Wrinkles

One of the best ways to look younger is to address fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Depending on the specific area of concern, our team recommends Botox or soft tissue fillers.

Botox is generally injected between the eyebrows and on the forehead into the muscles that contract and form wrinkles. The product paralyzes these muscles, causing the overlying wrinkle to soften. Soft tissue fillers like Restylane and Perlane are typically used for deeper wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds. When injected, these substances act like a cushion to fill in wrinkles.

Botox and dermal fillers are both performed during a quick, in-office procedure. Treatment is generally well tolerated and should be repeated every few months to maintain the effects.

Replenish Lost Volume

Another way that soft tissue fillers can be used is to restore volume to areas of the face that have lost fat with age. For example, the fat underneath the eyes can become displaced over time, and the area might start to look hollow. Fillers restore volume for a more youthful contour. Fillers can also be used to improve the contours of the cheeks and along the jawline.

Enhance Thin Lips

The lips tend to thin with age, and the surrounding skin can become lined and wrinkled. Lip enhancement with dermal filler or fat injections restores healthy, youthful volume and smoothes wrinkles. Treatment can be performed so subtly that it is not obvious that any work has been done.

Tighten Lax Skin

Has your skin lost its youthful laxity? Does it now sag unattractively? Non-surgical skin tightening treatment with Ulthera is designed to lift and tone the skin for a firmer, smoother contour. Ulthera uses ultrasound energy to trigger the production of fresh collagen for gradually firmer, smoother skin. It can be used to lift the skin on the brow and chin area.

Brighten Skin Tone

If your skin looks dull or dry, a professional skin treatment can help. Our team offers a variety of facials, peels and eye treatments to add a radiant glow to your complexion. A simple in-office, spa-like procedure can significantly improve the health and vitality of your skin.
