New Year, New You
At the start of a new year, most people review the past and set goals for the coming year. Often the list of resolutions includes: losing weight, eating healthier, stopping smoking, getting fit, exercising more….and if you dig further, it is not only better health that is objective but also improving appearance that is the key driver.
With work, many of these goals are attainable. But what if you want to look younger, reduce wrinkles, get rid of acne scars or improve the contours of your face? While eating better and stopping smoking can help slow the aging process, repairing the skin or reversing the signs of aging cannot be done through diet and exercise alone.
If you truly examine your motivations and determine that looking younger and more attractive is important to you, there are some amazing options available these days. Dermal fillers and injectables are now an easy way repair skin damage, remove wrinkles and improve facial appearance without downtime. Injectables can help Tampa women and men improve a variety of facial concerns and can be used for:
– Forehead Lines and Wrinkles around the Eyes
– Deep Furrows in the Brow
– Circles under the Eyes (known as tear troughs)
– Hollow or Sunken Cheeks
– Marionette lines around the mouth
– Nasolabial folds (called Smile or Laugh lines)
– Creases around the Nose, Mouth and Chin
– Acne scars and other Skin Damage
– Lip Enhancement and Plumping up Thin Lips
– Non-surgical Rhinoplasty (nose job)

Different types of fillers are used for different applications, for instance wrinkle reduction can be achieved with either Botox or the new drug Xeomin. Lip augmentation and filling of facial furrows can be accomplished with either JUVÉDERM or Restylane and facial contouring with RADIESSE Volumizing Filler. Often, a combination of injectables are used to provide the look you desire.
According to Dr. Dominic Castellano, a facial plastic surgeon in Tampa, the use of dermal fillers and Botox type injections have made a real difference in how he treats patients today. Results that could once only be realized with surgery can now be done with a needle and a quick office visit. Injectables not only cost less than more extensive surgical procedures, but they do not require any recovery down time. His patients often do not have to take time from work and they usually see the results within a day or two. Of course, this is not a permanent solution but depending on the product and the area treated, the effects can last from 6 months to a year and a half before requiring another treatment. Dr. Dominic always recommends setting up a consultation so you can learn more about which procedure may be best for you.
