Can You Look Younger Without Face Lift Surgery?

8 Face Lift Alternatives

Even if you’re not ready for a face lift, you can still look younger. There are numerous anti-aging treatments, as well as lifestyle changes, that can help set the clock back a few years. If you’re a 20-something, these steps can help you maintain a youthful appearance.

1. Reduce your sun exposure. Apply sunscreen twice a day. If you’re active outside on a regular basis, cover up with a hat or long sleeve shirt.

2. Don’t drink heavily, smoke, or use illicit drugs. All these habits can lead to premature signs of aging.

3. Start using a quality skin care regimen every day. Visit us to find out if you’re a candidate for Retin-A.

4. Get microdermabrasion or a facial every month to exfoliate.

5. Maintain a healthy body weight. Avoid dieting! Instead, commit to eating fresh fruits and vegetables and getting regular exercise.

6. Botox® Cosmetic and injectable fillers at a relatively young age can stop wrinkles when they first begin to appear.

7. Minimally-invasive surgeries like eyelid surgery or an endoscopic brow lift can correct the signs of aging that fillers can’t.

8. IPL treatments and fractional lasers can reduce unwanted pigment and stimulate collagen, with no downtime or minimal downtime.


Upper Lip Plumping Procedure Uses Botox and Dermal Fillers

Sculpting the appearance of the upper lip is delicate business – and sometimes two procedures are better than one. A recent episode of ABC’s The Doctors showcases a new, two-part procedure that can enhance the appearance of the upper lip without the need for surgery. This technique uses a Botox injection to mask fine lines, followed by hyaluronic acid injections to add volume.

You can see the procedure and the results in the video below, but a word to the squeamish: the video shows a woman having her lips injected with dermal fillers. Although the procedure is painless, you may not want to watch it if you have a fear of needles.

I’ve always had thin lips,” says Mary, the patient in the segment. “I’ve tried different kinds of lipsticks and liners and things that might allegedly plump your lips but it’s not really worked. I don’t do enough for myself and it would be really fun to have some girly lips.”

One half of Mary’s twofold procedure has been performed in advance. Since Botox takes 24 to 48 hours to take effect, the wrinkle-erasing treatment is already been injected into Mary’s upper lip to resolve the fine lines that appeared there. The second step, which is performed onstage, involves adding volume with dermal fillers along the border of the lip. This is where the lip has thinned as a result of the aging process.


Stress and Medical Factors Involved in Female Hair Loss

It’s more than just hormones – there are a variety of factors responsible for hair loss in women, including genetics, health, and lifestyle factors, according to a recent study in the latest issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Researchers found that high stress levels, smoking, hypertension, and cancer have all been associated with increased hair thinning.

Higher levels of testosterone have been associated with female pattern hair loss for many years. The hormone often causes hair loss of the sides and top of the head. Researchers have also known for a long time that genetics play an important role in hair loss. However, other risk factors for female hair loss have not been fully understood.

With this most recent study, researchers were able to eliminate the genetic variable by studying 98 identical twins. By comparing their lifestyle and medical factors, as well as measuring the twins’ testosterone levels, the researchers were able to measure the impact of non-genetic and non-hormonal factors.

Environmental and Medical Risk Factors for Hair Loss
higher levels of stress (often linked to separation or divorce, multiple marriages, and more children)
higher income levels
prolonged sleep (possibly related to depression/anxiety, as well as stress)
high blood pressure
lack of exercise
not using sun protection
