If only the Fountain of Youth was real. We would all be going for a dip! Unfortunately, aging is a natural process we all must face (pun intended). Sooner or later, your wrinkles become more visible and deeper, skin starts to sag, and before you know it, you have a hard time recognizing the person looking back at you in the mirror.
Fortunately, with a little help from Dr. Dominic at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, you can look younger and more beautiful for longer!
One of the first areas that start to show aging are your eyes. Typically, people ranging from the age of 30 to 80 are looking into upper blepharoplasty (eyelift). So how do you tell if you are ready for an eyelift? Here are a few giveaways.
• It is close to the time to get an eyelift when your eyelifts start to become heavy.
• When it is difficult to apply eye shadow from droopy eyelids.
• When eyelids start to obstruct your vision.
• Ethnicity also affects how soon one may need an eyelift due to skin elasticity.
Overall, eyelifts are generally a quick and easy procedure. An eyelift can drastically rejuvenate your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. If you are facing early onset aging from drooping eyelids and look older than you feel, call Elite Facial Plastic Surgery today!

What You Need to Know About Lines & Wrinkles
Oftentimes, people interchange the terms lines and wrinkles. However, lines and wrinkles are not one in the same. Lines and wrinkles are uniquely caused by different factors.
When looking for facial treatment and procedures such as fillers, Elite Facial Plastic Surgery specialists feel that it is necessary to be aware of the many differences. Differences in technique, products, and lines vs. wrinkles. Once you understand the difference between these two main agers, you can better understand the appropriate way to treat lines vs. wrinkles in order to achieve the ultimate results.
Lines are from repetitive muscle movement. Over time, lines leave slight marks in the skin. However, those who smile, frown or squint more, are prone to having more visible lines. Lines also deepen with age as your skin loses elasticity. Lines are generally located underneath the corners of the eyes, forehead, cheeks, in between eyebrows, or the sides of the mouth.
Wrinkles are more drastic. Wrinkles are thick and dramatic. Any noticeable folds, ridges, or creases in your skin are classified as wrinkles. Wrinkles are primarily caused by age, collagen, and decrease in elasticity, sun damage, medication, and dry skin. Wrinkles are located anywhere on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands.
Although lines and wrinkles are not the same, they both become dreadful features over the years. Lines and wrinkles will age you beyond your years if you are not actively trying to prevent them. Obviously, you cannot avoid facial expressions, sunlight and gravity. However, there are a few strides you can make to improve the appearance of lines as well as wrinkles.
1. Moisturize. Staying hydrated prevents formations of lines and wrinkles.
2. Use sunblock
3. Avoid smoking
