For Holiday Cheer, Let your Inner Beauty Shine Through

microneedling denver co | Fante Eye and Face Centre We all like to feel attractive. Feeling so is integral to a healthy sense of self, and we see this demonstrated in the way that most people feel when they notice the signs of aging taking over their face. As we head full-steam ahead into the merriest season of the year, it becomes even more important to address aesthetic concerns. Fortunately, there’s still time! At the ReDerm medical spa at Fante Eye & Face Center in Denver, patients can obtain the very treatment they need to feel their best throughout the holiday season.

A Little Boost
Sometimes, all it takes to feel better about the way you look is to reveal your naturally glowing skin. The skin’s vibrancy often gets hidden beneath dead and damaged skin cells that hang around the surface. These cells not only cause dullness, but they also stand between the skin and your expensive skin care products. A few options for uncovering your inner glow include:

  • Micropen treatment. Microneedling has become one of the processes through which younger patients are getting a head start on pampering their skin. Immediately after redness dissipates (within 24 hours), patients notice a brighter, healthier complexion. Because tiny injuries are made on the surface, treatment also brings a flood of collagen into the area. Over time, the rebuilt collagen strands better support the skin, and scars gradually disappear.
  • Botox. There aren’t many people who don’t know what Botox can do. If you are concerned about looking tired or angry in your holiday pictures because of those sagging brows or frown lines, you still have ample time to resolve these issues with a comfortable office treatment.
  • Fillers. It is common knowledge that fillers can plump the lips and smooth lines and wrinkles. However, some people still don’t know that a short office visit with an experienced injector can erase their under eye bags and get them ready for any holiday party. We also use fillers like Juvéderm® to round out the cheeks, which often has an advantageous effect on the sagging jowls.

Fante Eye & Face Center wishes all of our patients a beautiful holiday season. To schedule your holiday treatment with us, call (303) 839-1616.

Want Younger Eyes? Let’s Compare Botox vs. Brow Lift!

As we get older, we may start to dread the development of fine lines and wrinkles. We eventually learn that crow’s feet and smile lines are just the tip of the iceberg. At some point, many men and women complain about the “falling” of their forehead. In addition to horizontal lines, this effect of aging can also cause the eyes to become a little closed off. As a result, we look closed off, less friendly.

Historically, the way to resolve concerns related to facial aging has been to lift and tighten skin with surgery. Today, a large majority of patients who visit plastic surgery offices do so for injectable treatments or other non-surgical methodologies. Just because this option is available – and we perform treatment in our Denver office – doesn’t mean that a Botox brow lift is right for everyone.

What Botox does for the Brow

Botox Cosmetic has been in use for almost 15 years in the U.S., and longer in other countries. We are well aware of the wonderful difference this treatment can make on the face. The way that Botox smoothes the skin is by relaxing underlying muscles that have become perpetually tensed. Once muscle movements are diminished, the skin on the forehead and around the eyes is released. Since a drooping brow is the result of constant pulling, Botox injections in strategic locations makes sense.

The clear benefit to Botox for a drooping brow is that this treatment is non-surgical. No special preparation is needed, nor any downtime for recovery. Patients treated with this injectable typically go right back to their normal routine with little more than slight redness and possibly some bruising. Throughout the week following treatment, the brow line gradually rises to its ideal position across the upper orbital rim.

Traditional Brow Lifting

Botox tends to lift the brow slightly. In many cases, this is sufficient. However, there are patients who will gain the greatest – and longest lasting – results from a traditional surgical brow lift. This procedure removes surface tissue that has become saggy and thin, and also tightens subcutaneous tissue to better hold the new, lifted forehead and brow. This surgery can be performed in a number of ways, and typically takes only 60 to 90 minutes. Slight bruising and swelling should be expected, and activities need to be limited for a few weeks after surgery.
