Holiday magic for your face

Everyone wants to look great for the holiday season. In the past, removing wrinkles and other signs of aging required surgery. Today, there are plenty of nonsurgical treatments and procedures to help turn back the clock.

Juvederm: a proven product

Fillers are commonly and effectively used to restore volume and plump sagging skin. Hyaluonic acid (HA), a substance naturally present in the human body, is extracted from rooster combs or made by bacteria in the laboratory. This natural fluid works miracles in the field of aesthetics and plastic surgery as facial filler. HA cushions and fills like nothing else.

Juvederm evolves

Hyaluonic acid fillers, which have been utilized for years to soften the signs of aging, are evolving. After years of research, the product has been refined to target specific areas of the face. Juvederm, Allergan’s first “filler” product now has siblings with the added power of Vycross technology to address each area of the face:

• Voluma-restores loss of volume especially in the cheeks and midface
• Volift-effective for smoothing the nasolabial, nose to mouth, folds and marionette lines
• Volbella-adds fullness to the lips and reduces fine lines around the lip border

The “V” is for Vycross

Allergan uses the term “Vycross technology” to describe the unique cross linking of high and low weight HA. The weight/concentration adjustments allow the product to produce a more natural-looking result with fewer side effects and more lasting results. This technology relates to their molecular structure. Cross linking further improves the products. The results of the new, smoother formulation are several:

• Less-painful injections
• Easily moldable immediately after injection
• Less swelling post-treatment.
• More natural-looking results
• Longer-lasting results

Consultation then treatment

At a consultation appointment with Dr. Abramson, you will complete a medical history and discuss the contours of your face with the doctor. Once you have decided which areas you would like to have treated, Dr. Abramson’s assistant will cleanse the area and apply numbing cream. When the cream takes effect, the doctor injects each area.

The products contain lidocaine which further alleviates pain, so any pain from the injections is dulled substantially.

Post-treatment expectations

Afterward, the doctor will tell you what to expect and give you post-treatment care instructions.

If you have any questions regarding your treatment, you can always call Dr. Abramson’s office, and a friendly staff member will help you get the answers you need.

Dr. Abramson is experienced with the Vycross technology. He will not “overdo” the treatment but make the result soft and natural. If you live in Roswell, Milton Alpharetta, Buckhead, Dunwoody, Brookhaven or anywhere in the North Fulton area. Call Dr. Abramson’s office to make an appointment for a facelift using Vycross technology. You will be pleased with the results.
