Great Looks Have Never Been Easier
The famous face of Humphrey Bogart is the focus in two films where plastic surgery plays one of the starring roles. In Dark Passage, the iconic actor has been wrongly accused of murder and needs to make himself look different.
Ironically, in The Man with Bogart’s Face, Robert Sacchi plays a character who undergoes cosmetic surgery to make himself look more like Humphrey Bogart. In both cases, if you get a chance to see those films, you’ll get a feel for how difficult it used to be to bring new good looks and radiance to one’s appearance.
Those days are gone.
Today consumers enjoy a wide array of non-surgical procedures that literally deliver instant results. Let’s spend a few minutes and take a look at some of these exciting developments.
Palm readers claim they can read our futures by scanning the wrinkles in the palms of our hands. We don’t know about that, but we know that for many of us, it’s possible to read our pasts by looking at the wrinkles in our faces! With BOTOX® Cosmetic, it’s easy to erase much of that “history.”
Lines between our brows can make us look perpetually tired and even somewhat stern and unapproachable. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into muscles and it almost instantly improves the looks of those who are suffering from moderate-to-severe frown lines.
It’s a quick and simple treatment and has been performed some 12 million times in the United States since it was introduced back in 2002. Today, it would probably be hard to find a famous face from television or the movies who isn’t a BOTOX® Cosmetic user.
Here’s another product that instantly deals with the lines that tend to make us look older than we feel. Over the years our skin loses its natural hydrating substance: hyaluronic acid (HA) and that lack of HA causes our skin to not have the volume and structure it had in our younger years. The result is unwanted folds and wrinkles.
JUVÉDERM® XC is an injected “dermal filler” that replaces the lost HA, restoring the volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles. It does a great job on the problem area around the mouth and nose. Treatments today can deliver results that last up to a year and JUVÉDERM® XC is formulated for patient ease and comfort.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler
The importance of collagen in our tissues has been well known for a long time. In fact, collagen injections were one of the path breaking procedures to remove facial wrinkles without undergoing cosmetic surgery. RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler does two things, it immediately replaces the lost volume that causes wrinkles and then starts to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen and that leads to longer-lasting results from the treatment.
Areas typically treated with RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler are smile lines, marionette lines, the corners of the mouth, pre-jowls and chin wrinkles. The product is injected in these areas. The procedure is quick and can even be done over the lunch hour on a busy day.
Virtually immediate results and no downtime are among the benefits of the procedures we’re discussing here and The HydraFacial™ meets those two criteria as well. It’s a resurfacing procedure that provides your skin with cleansing, hydration, exfoliation, extractions and a Vortex-Fusion® of peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid.
This procedure is totally non-invasive and non-surgical and it delivers instant results without causing you even a moment of downtime in your schedule. If you’re dealing with fine lines and wrinkles, or the effects of oily skin, sun damage or hyperpigmentation, The HydraFacial™ may be the best solution.
A variety of products are also available that are an extension of the treatment so you can maintain and even enhance the results you experience from your procedure.
It’s great to have so many advanced and effective products available today. Soon we might look back on these times and see them as the beginning of the golden age of renewed good looks. Of course, it does take the advice and counseling of a professional to design and implement the right treatment plan.
