One of our patients sent us a link to a Vogue article, where writer Jancee Dunn shared:
“We are always the same age inside.” Of all Gertrude Stein’s quotable remarks, this one resonates with me the most. 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.
Those words ring true for many of us.
How often have you looked in the mirror, surprised that your outside age does not reflect your inner age?
The Vogue writer went on to share her year-long transformation through a series of micro-treatments, and our patient told us, “This is exactly what you did for me!”
Through a series of non-surgical treatments, we gradually brought back a more youthful look to our patient.
What Are Micro-Treatments?
Micro-treatments use different types of non-surgical procedures over time. Ranging from lasers to fillers to medical-grade skincare products, this multi-pronged approach gradually changes the appearance. The goals – subtle changes over time to reverse the clock.
If you are like most of our patients, you are not trying to look drastically different. Instead, most want to bring back some youthfulness to their look and do it in a way that looks natural. You want to retain the full range of your facial expressions.
The subtle corrections that patients will see include softening lines, adding fullness to the face, and providing a clearer complexion.
Why the Multi-pronged Approach to Facial Treatment?
All of these services are coordinated to treat the various signs and symptoms of aging for an improved overall appearance, rather than fixing only one issue but ignoring the rest. For example, if you only use filler, you’ll have fewer wrinkles but still have aging skin with brown spots and poor texture.
You’ll want to maintain the youthful plumpness in your face while also ensuring that it’s clear and smooth.
Or, you may address your face but have sagging skin along your neck and under your chin. The multi-prong approach ensures that your overall look is consistent.
Over time, patients not only see fewer wrinkles, but they also see a brighter face that makes them look 10-15 years younger.
Where Do You Start?
Begin with a consultation. Our approach is simple – you talk, we listen. We want to understand what you want to achieve. Together, we can develop a plan that fits your goals, life, and budget.
Once we begin, you will typically see results with the first treatment. The most effective micro-treatments, however, are administered over a series of months. It will be in-office treatments and at-home skincare, to get you to the place you want to be. After that, we go into maintenance mode to help you maintain your look.
