the facelift - necklift that dr. guida performs is really a mid-face, lower facelift and necklift, performed simultaneously. by tightening the neck, defining the jaw line and elevating the cheeks, dr. guida's technique creates a long lasting, natural and youthful appearance. the areas to be improved include the midface (cheeks), the line from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth, the loose skin at the jaw line (jowls), and the neck, along with neckbands.
excess hooded skin of the upper eyelids and puffy bags of the lower eyelids are usually the first and most dramatic signs of aging of the face. as we age our skin becomes loose and begins to sag. this becomes quite noticeable around the eyes since the eyelids have the thinnest skin on your body. fatty tissue under this thin skin begins to protrude under the skin, causing "bags" under the eyes. this creates a tired, aged look despite the fact that many patients are not tired and are actually young in age. exposure to the sun also leads to a loss of elasticity in the skin around the eyes and can cause more sagging or wrinkling.
Laser Skin Resurfacing/ Wrinkle Reduction
time, gravity and excess sun exposure can cause deepening of facial lines and uneven pigmentation. this gives an older, tired look to an otherwise youthful complexion. laser skin resurfacing can reduce, and often remove, much of this damage to the skin and literally "turn back the clock". a tired looking, sun damaged face can obtain an entirely new, fresh look with healthy, glowing smooth skin. this is the goal of laser resurfacing.
botox cosmetic is one of the most commonly used cosmetic treatments performed in the world - and the reason is because it works amazingly well. dr. guida finds that botox cosmetic can make cosmetic improvements on the face that plastic surgery, lasers, or chemical peels, could never achieve. the deep, horizontal "worry" lines of the forehead, the vertical grooves between the eyebrows when one frowns, and severe "crow's feet" around the corners of the eyes can be softened dramatically, and in some cases, totally eliminated by botox cosmetic.
Cosmetic Injectable Fillers
dr. guida has exceptional experience in the area of cosmetic injectable fillers - substances that can be injected into the skin to fill in wrinkles, add definition, and even re-build facial areas. importantly, dr. guida believes that the ultimate goal of this type of procedure is to create a natural, youthful look. his artistic eye is invaluable in this approach.
