Portland, ME, July 31, 2015: Owner and Founder of The Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Verne Weisberg posted a new article on his website entitled, “Raising Eyebrows and Plumping Lips with Nonsurgical Treatments.” Eyebrows may be raised in surprise that a respected plastic surgeon would hint at the elimination of any surgical proceedings. However, Weisberg is fully aware that some people will never submit to cosmetic surgery.
Weisberg writes, “Some people are simply not willing to undergo cosmetic surgery. That is completely understandable. Yet, those who don’t want to go under the knife may also have a strong desire for a fresher, more youthful looking face.” He continues adding, “Fortunately, today there are several non-surgical options that offer subtle, yet visible temporary improvements. Additionally, these non-surgical treatments are useful in prolonging the need for a surgical procedure.”
Focusing on Botox for the brows, Weisberg states, “One of the first places on the face that tends to show signs of aging is the area around the eyes and the eyebrows. Muscles around the brow tend to pull the brow line down creating a drooping look. Botox injections in and around the brow line cause the muscles that pull down on the eyes to weaken and relax, thus allowing the brow line to lift up. This gives the face a brighter, more youthful appearance.”
For the surgery averse, Weisberg assures, “Botox is a painless treatment with immediate results that can last up to 6 months. It is the most popular nonsurgical procedure in the United States. Botox is used to loosen tight vocal chords, eliminate migraine headaches, medically stop perspiration and eliminate muscle spasticity. These uses were in effect long before Botox made it’s way into the world of cosmetic surgery.”
“The second area of the face that begins to show the signs of aging,” writes Weisberg, “is around the mouth.” He adds, “The lips begin to lose their moisture, the skin thins out, the lips lose their fullness and fine lines appear all around the mouth.”
Weisberg proceeds with a recommendation, writing, “Restylane Silk is the most appropriate filler for this area, particularly as signs of aging first appear. Like the use of Botox around the eyes, Restylane Silk treatments around the mouth will prolong the need for surgery.”
According to Weisberg, “Restylane Silk is a lighter form of Restylane. It is a hyaluronic acid product that attracts water to the area where it is injected thus plumping up the wrinkle or line better and more subtly than other hyaluronic fillers. The sense of having dry, chapped lips is eliminated and a subtle fullness is restored without the overdone look that is commonly seen among celebrities.”
Weisberg advises, “Whether you are just beginning to notice the signs of aging and want to prolong the need for surgery or you are not interested in ever going under the knife but do want to refresh the face, Botox brow lifts and Restylane Silk lip enhancement treatments are superior options.” He adds, “Always make sure you work with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, someone whose work you admire and respect. While the treatments are subtle, they can go very wrong if not administered properly. Done correctly, you’ll love the subtle changes and may prolong any need for surgery.”
