New Year New You: 5 Nonsurgical Procedures to Look your Best in 2018

Everyone strives to start the new year with a clean slate. Whether it’s beginning a new workout regimen or sticking to a diet, everyone has a New Year’s Resolution. A great way to kick off 2018 is by trying one of our nonsurgical procedures that will allow you to look more youthful than ever before. Here at Aventura Plastic Surgery we have five procedures that can help you accomplish just that. We offer Juvederm XC, Voluma, Botox, Restylane, and Perlane.

Juvederm XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC are excellent fillers that help restore volume in the deep and mid-dermal layers of the skin. They can last from 9 to 12 months and are usually tolerated in all patients. The difference between Juvederm XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC lies in the thickness and depth of application. At Aventura Plastic Surgery, we have both available to meet the needs of our client’s preference and aesthetic goals. To determine which is appropriate, Dr. Galitz will give a close evaluation of your skin and listen closely to your aesthetic. Both fillers contain Novacaine to lessen the discomfort of the injections.

Voluma is a relatively new and exciting filler that is great for augmentation and enhancement of the midface and cheek area. The results from this procedure can last for up to two years. Voluma is placed directly against the cheek bone (malar) structures for best results. This procedure can also be used as an enhancement after having a facelift surgery.

One of the most popular injections is Botox. During this procedure medicine is strategically injected into the muscles of the face and it temporarily improves lines and wrinkles (particularly crow’s feet and frown lines). Botox acts quickly, and you’ll be able to see results almost immediately.

Restylane and Perlane’s purpose is to restore volume and fullness to the skin. It corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).

If any of these nonsurgical procedures peak your interest, you can set up a consultation with one of the most experienced plastic surgeons in Miami Dr. Richard Galitz to discuss what will work best for you. Give us a call at 305-974-0505 to set up a consultation and get one step closer to the new you! We look forward to meeting with you!
