It’s quite often when I hear a patient say, “You can do that with Botox®?!”
Oh yes, there are many things we can do with Botox® and dermal fillers that don’t just involve getting rid of those wrinkles in between your eyebrows!
Here are just a few amazing ways to fight aging
1. The Nefertiti Lift
The “Nefertiti lift” is named after the ancient Egyptian royal Nefertiti who was well known for her contoured jawline. This technique involves well placed Botox® to the jawline in order to give a lifting effect, allowing for a more defined look to the “jowls.” By treating the platysmal bands that create a downward pull on the jawline, we can actually give the patient a lifted, more contoured look.
Results of the Nefertiti Lift can last for up to 6 months before needing to be repeated. In a 2007 study conducted by Dr. Levy, out of 130 patients treated with this technique, 126 rated their satisfaction as “extremely high” with their treatment.
2. Hand Rejuvenation
Have you noticed that your hands appear more aged recently? A lot of women report a loss of volume in their hands that results in a thinning of the skin and loss of elasticity. Unsightly veins and the bones of the hands become more prominent as we lose volume. By placing dermal fillers such as Juvederm® or Radiesse® into the hands, we can restore a more youthful look and create volume to help your aging hands.
3. Earlobe reconstruction
After constant abuse to our earlobes with heavy earrings, our lobes may begin to appear flat and hang lower than is aesthetically pleasing. Fillers just as Juvederm® and Restylane® are an excellent way to plump up the earlobes to restore them to a more youthful state.
4. Excessive sweating
Botox® is an excellent treatment for excessive sweating, known as hyperhydrosis, for the underarms, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Botox® temporarily blocks the nerve signals of sweat glands that promote excessive sweating. Results typically last from 5 months to 1 year of duration before retreatment.
These are just a few of the great things we can do with the products we offer at Skin Savvy Aesthetics. We specialize in advanced technique areas for Botox® and dermal fillers.
