As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling, chewing, and squinting. The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up begin to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines and crow’s feet. Skin treatments and fillers are short-term or longer-term procedures that change the contours of the face and body through non-surgical or minimally invasive procedures. To deliver a superior result, many of the techniques described here can be used in combination with others. During your consultation, Dr. Copeland will discuss the various approaches and help you decide what’s best for you.
