Getting older can have it’s upsides, but let’s face it, seeing the signs of aging on our faces is anything but desirable. Jancee Dunn, a writer for Vogue, recently dedicated an article to her personal struggles with “middle-age resting face”—and her words hit close to home.
“My interior age has, for longer than I can remember, hovered around 30. On the outside, however, I recently turned 50, a number that still surprises me when I say it aloud. Similarly, when I catch an unexpected glimpse of my face, for a few unreal seconds, I often do not recognize myself—a jarring sensation the French call a coup de vieux.”

But what can you do? At-home products may no longer cut it, but is plastic surgery the only option for truly noticeable improvement? What I know, and what Miss Dunn found out, was that a facelift (or other invasive procedure) is no longer always needed if you want to look more youthful.
Advances in minimally invasive technology now give our patients more options—and yield more natural-looking results. The world of cosmetic medicine has changed dramatically over the last decade. New techniques and improved technology mean we can offer patients more and more options that yield gorgeous results without the cost, downtime, or discomfort of surgery.
“Gravity finds us all, no matter how many green drinks you tip back or how diligently you hit the gym. My face has sunken in places and drooped in others. One of the many consequences of what I’ll call middle-age resting face”.
Like most women (and men) , many are concerned and want to avoid the unnatural look and anything that would drastically change their appearance. The key is balance combined with what could be referred to as “mico treatments” or “touch ups”. Anti-aging medicine is not one-size-fits-all. We work very closely with every patient to design a treatment plan tailored to their specific needs and desires.
There is a growing trend among more providers to look at combination approaches that are more synergistic and potentially offer greater bang for the buck.
~ Injectable treatments, such as Botox to soften expression lines or fillers such as Juvederm to restore lost volume.
~ Laser skin resurfacing to soften lines, improve skin tone and texture, and improve any age or sun spots.
~ Microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP) to improve overall skin health and address common age-related concerns.
~ A prescribed regimen of medical-grade skincare products and specialized peels.
