As we age so too does our skin.
Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. The 11s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.
Natural losses in subcutaneous fat and collagen can result in sagging or “laxed” skin, often accompanied by dark “age” spots. These losses lead to flattened cheeks and drooping of the jowl along the jawline. Facial muscles also thicken with age, causing the overlying skin to crease and fold around the eyes (crow’s feet), the brow (brow lines), and the lips (lipstick or smoker’s lines). Present in both men and women, these common signs of aging can often make us look older than we feel.

Here are Ways to Look Younger.
Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. At ProMD Health, we reverse the signs of aging by proving the latest facial rejuvenation techniques.
Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. The only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas, Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin.
Optimal results. Proven duration.
If you'd like to restore youthful fullness to your face, enhance shallow contours, enjoy fuller lips or soften those facial creases and wrinkles, dermal filler are the answer. Dermal fillers have been called "liquid facelifts" because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.
Although they can't help with excess sagging skin (Ulthera addresses such issues), these soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery. These treatments aren't permanent, however, and must be repeated and maintained.
Using certain dermal fillers in conjunction with our other Facial Rejuvenation treatments such as Ulthera, Botox injections and PRP has provided many of our patients with satisfying and lasting results. Dr. Gavrila will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results.
We at ProMD Health are pleased to offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) as part of our facial rejuvenation program. The treatment is ideal for individuals looking for a significant improvement in skin texture, tone, color and volume with minimal or no recovery time. This revolutionary natural procedure literally rejuvenates your face. Collagen production has been attributed to helping correct the visible effects of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid has also been shown to increase skin tone and volume providing a more youthful appearance.
Botox is one of the techniques ProMD Health uses to help patients look younger. Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time.

As we get older our fat content in the face, particularly the mid-face and chin area, loses some volume, helping to draw the skin downwards. This can make our cheeks look rather sunken and the whole face a little empty. A similar appearance is evident if one loses a significant amount of weight. To regain the appearance of youth again one can volumise the mid-face by transplanting fat typically taken from the abdomen, thighs, flank or back. This can give you a healthier glow, restore and rejuvenate your skin and help turn back the hands of time. Results can be noticed immediately as your face will look fuller, healthier and more youthful.
With the use of modern techniques and aesthetic injectable products, the appearance of age can be suspended—even reversed. Dr. Gavrila’s trained eye and exemplary skill in the intricate application of dermal and intra-dermal fillers, Botox®, Xeomin®, laser skin tightening, and chemical peels will rejuvenate your skin. Your face will appear younger, your skin firmer.
