The 360 Makeover A New Approach To Looking Younger

In my last article, I discussed the latest concept in cosmetic surgery, which is to rejuvenate your skin layer by layer by harnessing your bodys own capacity to renew itself. This approach reflects an advanced understanding of the aging process and, if started in time, can save you from ever having to go under the surgical knife.
This new approach to makeovers works best when you rejuvenate your face and body together. Intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacials remove sun spots, spider veins, prominent pores, acne and other blemishes from your face, neck, chest, arms, back and elsewhere. Photofacials can be alternated with natural salt macrodermabrasion, a more effective, aluminum-free alternative to microdermabrasion or with the newest chemical peels, to restore luster to your skin.
StarLux 1540 fractional laser resurfacing is a revolutionary new technology that stimulates the middle layer of your skin to produce new collagenfading wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and other blemishes with no scarring and little or no recovery time. Fractional laser resurfacing can be combined with StarLux IR infrared therapy, which stimulates the lowest layer of your skin to tighten itself. This is the most effective way to regenerate collagen and elastic tissue, to rejuvenate your face, neck, arms, abdomen and other areas with no down time or discomfort. StarLux IR, an advance over older treatments such as Thermage (Thermacool), produces a longer-lasting and more natural-looking result than if your skin is mechanically pulled tight by surgery.
Restylane or Juvedermpure, biosynthetic forms of the hyaluronic acid that naturally supports your skincan be gently injected to fill lines around the mouth and gaunt cheeks, to make thinning lips full again and to free you of under eye-hollows. An expert cosmetic surgeon can restore your youthful facial contours and lift your face subtly and beautifully with no scarring and minimal down time. Recent studies show that Restylane also stimulates your skin to produce its own collagen. Bony, veined hands can be rejuvenated with injections of your own natural fat. Tiny, precise treatments of Botox in the right places, to safely relax overactive muscles, smoothes frown lines, worry lines, crows feet and neck wrinkles, while preserving your natural facial expressions and avoiding a telltale frozen look.
Your results may be enhanced by re-contouring of your chin, neck, arms, abdomen, hips or other areas. A small, safe liposuction procedure, using the dermatologist-developed tumescent technique, can permanently remove stubborn fat deposits with minimal down time.
The multi-level 360 Makeover is a sophisticated approach that empowers you to project outwardly the youth and vitality that you strive for internally. State-of-the-art techniques are integrated into an individualized program that turns the clock back while preserving your own unique look. There is no scarring and minimal recovery time, and treatments can be modified with time to maintain a naturally youthful appearance at any age.
