Genetics, personal history, weight, ethnicity and other factors determine how a person ages. Many age marks can show up on the face after years of smiling, frowning, laughing and spending time in the sun. This can lead to lines around the eyes and mouth, sun spots, drooping eyelids and loss of skin tone and smoothness. Depending on the results an individual wishes to see and the level and type of damage, Dr. Tavoussi can recommend a variety of cosmetic procedures that can address any of these concerns.
Remove Your Wrinkles
Minor wrinkles and surface-deep facial droopiness may be effectively treated with facial contouring. Dr. Tavoussi typically uses either Botox, a small muscle paralytic, or fillers, such as Juvaderm or Restylane. Botox paralyzes small muscles just below the skin’s surface to eliminate small wrinkles, particularly in the forehead. Fillers are used in place of older collagen options to add volume underneath the skin. These can be used in a variety of places, such as around the mouth, eyes and forehead.

Deeper furrows around the nose and mouth and sagging skin around the mouth, chin and neck may require a more intensive procedure. A facelift can achieve much more impressive results than Botox or fillers can. It can smooth out deep facial creases, remove jowls under the chin and tighten the skin throughout the face and neck.
