Is your face aging faster than you are?

Your face is the first thing people see when they meet you, and deep wrinkles and creases can cause you to look older than you are and negatively impact your feelings of self-confidence in social situations. A number of factors contribute to the formation of wrinkles and lines on the face: firstly, as a normal part of aging, the skin starts to lose elasticity, beginning to sag where it was once taut. Repetitive movements in certain facial expressions can also accelerate the process, as can holding tension in your forehead or between your eyebrows. Furthermore, some of us are genetically predisposed to lose our skin elasticity and develop wrinkles at an earlier age than others. Fortunately, there are several options to slow and reverse this process, and we at Sinclair Plastic Surgery are committed to providing the most effective treatments.

Benefits of Juvederm

In recent years, injectable treatments are growing in popularity as a less invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery. One type of injectable is the dermal filler, a gel-like substance injected below the surface of the skin to restore volume, minimize the appearance of wrinkles, and give skin a plumper, more youthful, smooth appearance. Juvederm is one of the dermal fillers that we are pleased to offer at Sinclair Plastic Surgery.

Some of the advantages of Juvederm include:

Biocompatibility

Unlike other fillers that are made of synthetic compounds, Juvederm relies on hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally occurring in the body, making it much less likely to result in an allergic or other adverse reaction.

Little or No Downtime

The procedure’s simplicity and noninvasive nature make it possible to return immediately to daily activities, with only minimal swelling that is usually easily concealed and disappears within hours.

Duration

Juvederm is one of few fillers approved by the FDA to last up to an entire year, with results lasting on average about six months in a typical patient.

Immediate Results

With some cosmetic procedures, the results are not apparent until after a significant period of healing takes place. With Juvederm, you can immediately see the results and judge for yourself if the injected amount was sufficient, making it easy for you and your plastic surgeon to collaborate on the result that you envision.

Reversibility

If you are for any reason dissatisfied with the results of your Juvederm injections, then hyaluronidase can be administered as an antidote, and it will dissolve the hyaluronic acid within 12 hours.

  • We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. Our preventative measures include:
  • Fully training all staff members to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • Appointments will be staggered to avoid congestion in the waiting room.
  • Checking temperatures of every patient that comes into the office.
  • Asking all staff, vendors and ancillary personnel to refrain from coming to the office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Asking every patient to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms and inquiring about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing, as this continues to be the most important mode of prevention.
  • Although it is something that we have always constantly done, we are now doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • Constantly sanitizing all surfaces (which we have always done as an accredited facility).

However, we have now increased this routine and are wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities multiple times each day.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this country even better than it currently is. We are closely monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will update our practice’s guidelines as needed to protect our patients.
