As the years go by we become wiser, learning more lessons to try to live a better life. However, experience and maturity don’t come free. The price of all this knowledge and wisdom is getting old. But really getting old doesn’t mean feeling old or looking old.
Well, part of that is genetic. You look at your parents and chances are that is the way you are going to look when you grow old. That is the truth; genes are the most important factor in how we age. However, the way you take care of yourself, the type of life you live, and the treatments that you have had will make a major difference.
Now, we are entering into a crucial stage. Today’s look is more natural, so that maturity, wisdom, and beauty can still go together. The most important thing is to achieve an appropriate look for your age. You can’t pretend to look twenty if you are fifty. Facelifts that give your cat’s eyes and baboon cheekbones are unsatisfactory. This doesn’t mean that people are giving up and just want to look old; it only means that there are better, more alternatives that are available. In reality, this change is due to all the non–invasive, nonsurgical and more affordable alternatives available today such as Botox, Dermal Fillers, and Lasers.
Botox is a refined protein produced by a bacterium which decreases the movement of the muscles that cause creases. There are two types of wrinkles: active and permanent. The active wrinkles are created when we frown, smile, or express our feelings. With time, the constant motion causes the skin to crease and these wrinkles become permanent. Today Botox is the golden opportunity to treat active wrinkles and prevent and soften fixed ones.
Botox is safe and highly efficient. 10– Minute treatment and a few tiny injections and in 3–5 days after the treatment the difference is noticeable. You will look several years younger and your face will look relaxed.

As we age, our faces lose volume and production of elastic tissue, collagen, and hyaluronic acid slow down, decreasing skin’s ability to “snap back.” Exposure to sunlight stimulates this process. If your wrinkles are already fixed or permanent and your lips are drooping and becoming thinner, the solution is Dermal Fillers. Basically, there was the only collagen, but this lasted only three months. Today we have a new generation of FDA–approved Dermal Fillers in West Palm Beach.
Juvederm is the latest one. This is hyaluronic acid in the form of an injectable gel that has a very smooth consistency. In the hands of a skilled surgeon, Juvederm can be used to improve nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (oral commissures), and deep frown lines. This product can also be used to restore the natural look of lips and to treat perioral lines. The results are immediate and last up to one year.
Another one is Raddiese filler. It is thicker; more lasting filler made of something related to what bones are made of. Raddiese is used to treat facial asymmetry, deeper wrinkles, and nasolabial folds. It is also used for the enhancement of cheeks and chin. Raddiese lasts around two years.
Fillers are used in different areas discussed below:
- The area below the eye, where there are depressions or hollows can produce a sagging, elderly look. Fillers used here can enhance the look especially.
- It can make the cheeks look fuller and provide a youthful appearance. Especially in the lower cheek areas, the fat pads shift constantly giving a hollowed-out appearance. Fillers can be used in this area to produce younger appearance with fuller cheeks.
- Even out scars resulting from chicken pox or chronic acne.
- The laugh lines or the nasolabial folds, lines that run from the nose to the mouth. Fillers can help smooth out the creases and add volume to this area.
- Smoothing out vertical lines around the lip edges, which again produce an elderly appearance.
