Face Makeover Before & After Photos (7)
The before and after photographs on this page are meant to provide patients with better insight into the results that could be obtained from face treatments. Even though each patient is unique, the results displayed in the photographs can give patients an indication of the possibilities for an aesthetic problem.
Want to learn more about the different treatments used at the Dr Lanzer Clinic to rejuvenate the face, or to solve an aesthetic problem with the face? Please read the information below to find out.
What Is Facial Harmony (Mid Face)?
Every face has three distinct areas. The upper, mid and lower face. Some facial areas will age faster than others; the key is to create harmony between the areas.
The mid face area includes the tear troughs, cheeks, and temples. As we age, our face can appear more hollowed. An area which can be affected more by this is the temple region. This is also an area which can be missed, yet when attended to, it could create quite dramatic rejuvenating results.
The hollowness in the temples can be treated by using dermal fillers; this to replace the lack of volume. The use of dermal fillers creates a more rounded, youthful appearance, hence why it is a popular rejuvenation treatment.
The tear troughs are an area that may either be quite sunken and dark, or quite heavy and baggy. If they are sunken, then dermal fillers will help to build up the volume loss and reduce the sunken appearance. If they are heavy and have ‘bags’ then a lower blepharoplasty procedure may be more suitable. When combined with laser resurfacing, the lower blepharoplasty will give your lower lids a nice, tight, and smooth texture.
The cheeks also lose volume as we age. It tends to appear as though our cheek pads move from our cheeks to our jowls, causing lower face heaviness. Dermal fillers again are a great option for replacing that volume loss. Fat transfer injections are also an option.
Dermal fillers in the cheeks can last from about one to five years, depending on which product is used. The appearance of broken capillaries on and around the nose and cheeks, or rosacea, is a common concern of many people as well; this can be treated using one of our specialised lasers. It is a quick, non-invasive procedure, which can be done using a topical anaesthetic cream to make you more comfortable. Pigmentation on the cheeks is quite common amongst patients aged twenty-five and up, and can be treated using a combination of skin peels and lasers.
What Is Facial Harmony (Lower Face)?
As mentioned earlier, every face has three distinct areas. The upper, mid and lower face. Some facial areas will age faster than others; the key is to create harmony between the areas.
The lower face is made up of the nasal labial folds, the lips, the jowls and the jawline. As we age and lose volume in our cheeks, it can cause heaviness on our nasal labial folds and jowls.
The options for heaviness on the nasial labial folds and jowls depend on the individual and may include; dermal fillers to the cheeks to provide support for the lower face, a skin suture lift to lift this skin back, a mini facelift to lift and remove this excess skin, and dermal fillers in to the folds to minimise them.
The upper lip is commonly an area of concern in mature patients, particularly those who have been smokers. Vertical lines or “smoker’s lines” can be treated using laser resurfacing, dermal fillers or fat transfer. Using a muscle relaxant in this area can help to reduce the movement, which encourages these creases to appear.
The lips are a focal area of our face. Lips that are uneven or thin, or that just need a bit of plumping up, can be done with some dermal fillers. These fillers generally last six to twelve months, and are made from a naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. It is because it is a naturally occurring acid that it will be gradually broken down by the body.
Areas such as the chin and jawline can be softened using a combination of dermal fillers and muscle relaxants. In men, the jawline can be built up and made more masculine by adding dermal fillers in the right areas. The marionette lines can be softened using laser resurfacing, dermal fillers, or by performing a skin suture lift.
