A Variety of Cosmetic Procedures for a Beautiful You
Dr. Martin Plastic Surgery offers a wide range of cosmetic facial procedures to enhance your natural beauty and achieve a youthful look. Our services include the following
The Brow Lift—also known as a forehead lift or upper facelift— is one of our more requested facial procedures. Our brows allow us to show facial expressions and personality. Genetics plays the major role in brow position and shape; however, sun damage and the wear and tear of time can take its toll. A brow lift is best suited to individuals with low brows or deep lines across the forehead. Lifting the brow will restore it to the smoother, youthful brow you once knew.
The scars from this procedure will be professionally hidden within, or next to, the hairline for minimal visibility. Patients typically experience bruising and swelling around the eyelids for 10-14 days after surgery. Makeup can be used to camouflage discoloration several days following the procedure.
As we age and mature, fine lines and wrinkles become deeper and more widespread. Several factors, unfortunately, work in tandem to contribute to this—cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss and damage due to free radicals. All of which result in thinner skin and, therefore, more prominent wrinkles.
The vertical lines that appear between your brows, which we sometimes refer to as “elevens”, are a result of muscle contractions that cause your skin to furrow and fold between your eyebrows. For many, this happens when you squint, frown or concentrate. Some patients also worry about crow’s feet around the eyes, or deep horizontal lines across the forehead. With years of frequent contraction, those expression lines remain visible even when our muscles are at rest.
Botox Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical procedure that temporarily reduces the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles in men and women. This works by blocking the nerve impulses in the injected muscles to reduce wrinkle-causing contractions.
Patients don’t require any downtime, and can resume most daily activities following the procedure.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC
We are all trying to achieve younger, healthy looking skin. In youth, our skin contains an abundance of hydrating hyaluronic acid (HA). Its primary function is to bind and absorb water that creates volume in the face. Consider it your body’s internal filler and moisturizer.
With aging, ultraviolet damage from sunlight, and other factors the amount of normal HA that is produced within our skin decreases. As it decreases, the presence of lines and folds increase. A lack of this hydrating chemical can cause your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial lines like those around the nose and mouth.
Fillers are injectable gels that restores the HA in your skin—helping to diminish wrinkles and lessen the depth of lines and nasolabial folds. It is commonly used to plump up thinning lips. It is a safe and effective way to smooth out unwanted lines and bring back volume to your face. They are FDA-approved dermal fillers that are safe for different skin types.
About the Product
JUVÉDERM® XC is an injectable gel that restores the HA in your skin, helping to diminish wrinkles and nasolabial folds. It is a safe and effective way to replace HA and to smooth out unwanted lines, bringing back volume in your face.
JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is safe and effective for different skin types. Studies done on the product have shown no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring in patients of color.
Other similar fillers in the market are made of granular consistency gels, but JUVÉDERM® is made using a unique manufacturing process called HYLACROSS™. This creates a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a natural look and feel. Everyone will notice the change in your skin, but no one can tell that you’ve had a procedure done.
