With the New Year, people want to achieve the best physical version of themselves. To best achieve your goals, it is important to determine your facial aesthetic priorities

With that in mind, Dr. Ostad addresses the most common concerns that patients have for the New Year. Along with looking at these concerns, in this blog, we will take a look at some of the best treatments for you. 

What Are Patients Concerned About?

With the New Year just around the corner, patients are looking forward to getting the right treatment for their specific aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation 
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sagging skin
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Stubborn fat
  • Spider veins and redness
  • Cellulite

According to Dr. Ostad, many of these skin concerns are caused by the natural aging process but may also be a result of UV exposure. For this reason, to reach your goal, it is so important that you have a consultation to establish the right treatment for you. 

Techniques for Reaching Aesthetic Goals

Here are the procedures we offer to address different cosmetic concerns:

  • Injectable Treatments

Injectables represent the most common way to address wrinkles and lack of volume in the skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic is often used for dynamic wrinkles or facial conditions caused by muscle tension. Made from botulinum toxin type A, BOTOX® Cosmetic can temporarily relax the targeted muscles, stopping the contraction signals from the nerves. Over time, the skin begins to smooth out, reducing the presence of wrinkles.

On the other hand, hyaluronic acid fillers like JUVÉDERM® work best for patients who have wrinkles in the bottom half of their face. This gel-like substance can fill hollow areas in the skin, smoothing the treatment area and offering you a more rejuvenated appearance. Dermal fillers can also be used for lip or cheek augmentation when people are experiencing a lack of volume. 

  • Facial Rejuvenation Procedures

Aging is a major concern for many women and men, especially for patients who have passed the age of 30. At this point, they may notice different aesthetic issues like acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, excess pigmentation, and other aesthetic imperfections. This happens because skin cell turnover slows down with age. 

The good news is that facial rejuvenation procedures can help address these concerns. Procedures like Fraxel® CO2 or chemical peels accelerate the skin turnover process as well as help with the production of new collagen in the skin. These procedures can allow patients to reach their facial rejuvenation goals as their skin renews itself.

  • Body Contouring Treatments

Excess body fat is another aesthetic concern that many patients have when they reach Dr. Ostad’s office. Since it’s a new year, many people want to improve their physique to look fit. 

Luckily, procedures like tumescent liposuction can be used to reduce excess fat. Some patients are also concerned about the lack of muscle that remains after fat loss; to help with this concern, treatments like EMSCULPT NEO® are recommended.

  • Skin Tightening Procedures

Wrinkles are not the only concern that patients have as they begin the New Year. With each year, collagen production drops by 1 percent. This means that by the time patients are 40 or 50, they may be experiencing unsightly sagging skin.In this case, skin-tightening procedures like Morpheus8™ and EMFACE® can trigger collagen and elastin production. These procedures can resolve skin laxity issues and offer a more youthful look, bringing patients one step closer to their goals.
