Many of the people coming through our doors at Premier Plastic Surgery of Kansas City are looking for help with facial wrinkles. Most first-timers aren’t looking for a full face lift – just something to help them look more refreshed, less worried and less sun damaged.
Laser treatment, dermal peels and fillers are among the noninvasive skin treatments available at our office. The top dog, however, is Botox. National use of Botulinum Toxin Type A soared 24% in 2012, according to figures released by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Why? Well, simply put, it’s extremely effective.
Before jumping into treatment, we do a thorough assessment of our patients’ medical histories, lifestyles and their expectations. We ask lots of questions. Did you just have a baby? Are you getting enough sleep? Do you smoke? Do you drink enough water and use sunscreen? Are you under a lot of stress? What are your nutritional habits? These are important questions. While age and genetics may be key components to aging skin, these other factors may contribute to wrinkle formation and may affect treatment outcome.
Rejuvenation of brow furrows, lip lines, or crow’s feet around the eyes may be as simple as a round of Botox or some conservative use of skin fillers to smooth out unwanted lines. In fact our Skin Care Center is offering a 20% savings on Botox, Juvéderm and Radiesse treatments this month. (Aug. 2013) Other rejuvenating products include Latisse and SkinMedica with special discounts reserved for our office’s Brilliant Distinctions members.
You may find the article “Why Some People Age More Than Others and How You Can Minimize It” helpful. It offers a seven-step skin-care guide to fight premature aging. Of course, some patients are looking for more involved help – including eyelid surgery, brow lifts or implants – and I would be happy to consult with you about these procedures. Simply call the office of Dr. John B. Moore at (913) 782-0707 to set up a consultation. Our hours are 9 a.m. -5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
