The Secret to Beautiful Contouring – without using makeup

Standard

The makeup contouring trend is all the rage, but wouldn’t you prefer to have the look without the daily routine? 

Restoring your youthful contours or augmenting your cheeks has become a very popular treatment. If you’re interested in natural-looking results that can make your makeup contouring routine obsolete, talk to your dermatologist about trying one or more of these treatments. 


 

Replacing Lost Collagen – Face and Jawline

Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable treatment that gradually stimulates growth of your own collagen!

In the months after your treatment, Sculptra can restore more youthful skin and contours, lifting and creating definition where you may have lost it over the years. On average, three sessions over a few months can last for more than two years – so you can skip all the daily bronzers and highlighters.


Volumizing and the Lifting- Face and Jawline


Soft Tissue Fillers 

Soft Tissue Fillers, like RADIESSE Volumizing Filler, Juvéderm, and Restylane provide immediate volume and correction in places like:

  • The deep lines between the nose and mouth, sometimes called “smile lines”
  • Lines framing the mouth, also known as “marionette lines” or “parentheses”
  • Hollow temples
  • Deeper contours or lines under the eyes, also known as the “tear troughs”
  • The lip line, the lips, the chin, and the jowls

Voluma 

Voluma, also a soft tissue filler, is a unique injectable gel specifically made for instantly volumizing the cheek area – which can lift the mid and lower face, including the jowls and jawline! A treatment with Voluma can help restore contour and a more youthful profile, and can last for up to two years!img_2123img_2124


 

Slimming and Defining- Neck and Jawline

Kybella 

Kybella is an injectable treatment for contouring and improving the appearance of submental fullness, frequently referred to as ‘the double chin’. Made up of a naturally occurring molecule in the body, this treatment actually aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat for a more defined, younger-looking jawline. img_2127img_2121
BOTOX Cosmetic 

During what is called “the Nefertiti Lift” procedure, BOTOX Cosmetic is injected into the vertical bands in the neck, resulting in a more defined jawline, a smoother neck, and prevention of the pull-down that leads to the turkey neck look.


Board certified Dermatologist, Dr. Quenby Erickson, sometimes uses one or more combinations of these treatments to achieve significant, yet natural-looking results.

“It’s like having all the crayons in the box to work with, not just one color,” says Dr. Erickson. “With the availability of these cutting-edge injectables, we can address multiple areas to achieve beautiful contours and lift,”

…without spending all morning in your makeup mirror.

Treatments that are a Treat: Botox in the Bands, A.K.A. the ‘Nefertiti Lift’

Standard

Nefertiti was arguably one of the most famous and beautiful women of the ancient world,  and perhaps one of the very first icons of beauty. One very notable feature is her elegant and long neck, which is complemented by a beautifully defined jawline.

The WHAT: Enter the present-day Nefertiti Lift technique, a contemporary treatment focused on relaxing the depressor action of the platysmal bands (the pulling-down on the neck) and other muscles to re-contour the jawline without surgery.

Dr Quenby Erickson injected BOTOX Cosmetic into the platysmal bands to recontour the neck and jawline without surgery.

Dr Quenby Erickson injected BOTOX Cosmetic into the platysmal bands to recontour the neck and jawline without surgery.

The WHY: In short, the platysma basically spreads from the chest up the neck, and to the jaw.  When we age, (and due to genetics) the platysma separates into ropey bands, which can pull downward, exaggerating the jowls and creating the ‘turkey neck’ or ‘gobbler’ effect.

The HOW: During the Nefertiti Lift treatment, Botox Cosmetic is used to relax those bands, and sometimes the muscles that pull the corners of the mouth/chin down.  Dr. Quenby Erickson uses this advanced, non-invasive (and pretty much painless) technique to smooth and lift without surgery or downtime. The result is a beautiful and elegant jawline and smooth neck.  The results last up to 3-4 months, and usually take at least 20-25 units of Botox (increasing from there, depending on your individual needs).
