It’s a good question, and one that all of us who want to look good and feel good are likely to ask at some point in our lives. Thanks to modern technology, it turns out there’s a pretty simple way to slow down and even reverse the hands of time, as Dr. Davis explained earlier this month to iHeartRadio host Loraine Ballard Morrill.
Your Face in 3-D
The key to prolonging youthfulness is in understanding what happens to the face as it ages. It’s more than just lines and wrinkles that form. We age in 3-D. Deep down structurally, our facial bones can degenerate just like other bones in the body. On top of that, we naturally lose muscle and fat over time. Finally, it’s years of sun exposure we can blame for losing elasticity that we associate with youth.
Facial Fillers 101
Enter today’s facial fillers, specifically, hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. These are made in the lab to mimic the HA that is naturally found in our own bodies. HA fillers come under various names — Restylane, Juvéderm, Voluma — and are very safe and effective for restoring the facial skeleton and volume loss. We’re literally using fillers to resculpt the face to more youthful contours, not just filling creases.
Common Filler Fixes
