Details for Case #11973
This 59-year-old woman was about to turn 60 and wanted to treat herself to a facial rejuvenation procedure. She met with a Beverly Hills area plastic surgeon at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates to discuss her goals of looking more positive and refreshed by reducing the “crow’s feet” around her eyes and fine lines between her eyebrows. She admitted that she did not want to look tired and sad anymore, especially as she neared her birthday.
During their consultation, this woman and her surgeon decided that a combination of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Perlane™, and Restylane® injectable treatments would create the changes she most wanted to see. BOTOX works by relaxing specific facial muscles so they do not contract, and in the process helps smooth out the fine lines and wrinkles that appear with repeated facial expressions. Injectable fillers like Restylane help fill out loose facial tissues that have lost volume over time, giving skin a firmer and younger look.
After receiving BOTOX, Perlane, and Restylane, this woman is much happier with her appearance. In her “after” photos, her expression lines have been softened so that she looks friendlier and more relaxed. In order to maintain these results, her treatments will need to be touched up within the year, or else replaced by the results of a longer-lasting face lift, eyelid surgery, or other facial plastic surgery near Pasadena.
