As we age, so 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.

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 implementing the latest facial rejuvenation techniques.
Forever Young BBL is an innovative technology that uniquely delivers light therapy targeting the signs of aging and sun damage and effectively provides a more refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance. Forever Young BBL treats a wide variety of conditions. For skin rejuvenation, Forever Young BBL removes age spots, freckles, redness, small vessels and more. Forever Young BBL can also be used to reduce unwanted hair and control active acne. All areas of the body can be treated.
VOLUMA is a facial filler that is created from hyaluronic acid, a hydrating protein that is found naturally in our skin. As we get older, our face loses its structural support; when combined with resorption of bone and fat, our face can start to have a sagging and hollow appearance. Discover more about Voluma

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 fillers are the answer. Dermal fillers have been called “liquid facelifts” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.
Forever Young BBL (Broadband Light), an innovative technology that uniquely delivers light therapy targeting the signs of aging and effectively provides a more refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance. Patients who maintain a regular regimen of BBL treatments annually can reduce and delay the long-term signs of skin aging in a way that looks very natural.

BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS
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. Discover more about Fat Transfer
