In life, we rely on our BFF, our best friend forever, to get us through the hard times. This special person, or people, can make us smile when we’re down and can make all the good times that much better. As much as you love your BFF, we know your skin would love to have one too. We’ve got it.
A BFF for your skin can look at all those signs of aging, the sagging skin, the drooping eyebrows and frown lines, the spots caused by years of sun damage, and give them the love they need. What BFF are we talking about? Botox, fillers, and Fraxel, of course!
Botox, that well-loved wrinkle reducer, continues to perform like a pro. This treatment is the first one that many people turn to when they start to notice that their face doesn’t look as friendly as it once did. When their frown lines are permanently etched between their brows and fine lines web out from the corners of their eyes. Botox is a quick treatment that reduces the appearance of frown lines, worry lines, and other signs of aging that are the result of tensed muscles. The muscles that we routinely use to make facial expressions have no choice but to get toned after years of contracting. The only way to relieve them is to block the chemical that the brain sends to make them move. This is the magic of Botox.
Dermal fillers are used both correctively and proactively to enhance facial features. Thin lips? Enhance them with a hyaluronic acid filler. Flat cheeks? Restore contours with filler. Undereye bags? You know what we’d recommend! Dermal fillers achieve appreciative improvements immediately and continue to support the skin for several months.
Fraxel Laser Treatment
Fraxel is a brand of fractional laser resurfacing that gently rejuvenates the skin. This laser treatment delivers laser energy in precise, tiny beams that are fragments of a single, more powerful beam. Broken apart, these pinpoints of energy affect micro-areas of tissue on the face, neck, chest, or body. While a slight resurfacing effect occurs that involves flaking or peeling, fractional resurfacing also stimulates cellular changes far beneath the surface. As a result of these effects, the skin looks brighter (bye-bye, spots!) and smoother.
Aging is not a streamlined process, nor is our skin quite as simple as it may seem. There is currently no single treatment that can address the many signs of aging. There is, however, BFF for your skin. To meet your BFF face to face, call 559-435-SKIN (7546) and schedule a consultation in our Fresno office.
