The Broad Scope of Facial Rejuvenation
“Facial rejuvenation is a broad category…” Dr. Politis begins, pulling back the curtain on the complexities of this aesthetic realm. It’s not a one-size-fits-all solution, rather an intricate tailoring process—a ‘beauty plan’— drafted to suit each individual’s unique needs and desires.
Dr. Politis explains, there are two distinct groups of patients: surgical candidates and non-surgical candidates. The former seeks invasive procedures involving the resection of skin and recontouring of the neck. They typically desire a comprehensive lift, addressing the lower face and neck, supplemented with panfacial fat grafting to combat volume loss.
The Power of Non-Surgical Interventions
However, not everyone wishing to restore their youthful aesthetics needs to go under the knife. As per Dr. Politis, “The other cohort of patients are the non-surgical patients or patients that really don’t want surgery at this time because of the downtime or other needs.” For such individuals, remarkable advancements in non-surgical methodologies and materials have made it possible to achieve impressive results.
Toxins and fillers have emerged as game-changers in facial rejuvenation. The market is teeming with brands such as Javu, Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport, of which Dr. Politis is well-versed.
“With this technology and understanding the physics and what’s called the rheology behind fillers, we are able to achieve sculpting of the face with certain fillers and achieve shaping of the face with other fillers.”
Biostimulators and Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers
Delving deeper into the science of non-surgical facial rejuvenation, Dr. Politis introduces us to biostimulators, which are non-hyaluronic acid-based fillers that promote the patient’s own collagen growth for long-lasting results.
But when she wants to ‘reinflate’ certain areas – specifically those affected by aging-induced fat pad descent and deflation – Dr. Politis finds hyaluronic acid fillers to be the perfect solution. They work well in delicate areas like under the eye, around the jaws, nose, mouth, and lips.
The Final Touch: Toxins
In the masterful hands of Dr. Politis, toxins like Botox become the final delicate brushstroke on the canvas of facial rejuvenation. They complement the effects of the fillers, blending in to create a refreshed, naturally youthful appearance.
