Today, you walk into a room and you’re not sure how old anyone is anymore. Much of it is due to the increased use of injectable anti-aging treatments.
Technically, injectables are supposed to make you look younger, and they certainly can. They smooth lines. They restore contours that flatten with age. They lift droopy brows and slackening jawlines.
We were injected more than 6.6 million times, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. That’s a nearly 40 percent increase from just five years ago. This is due, in part, to:
- more Generation Y (aka echo boomers or millenials) coming of target age
- starting treatments at younger ages
- and men starting to participate in injectable use
To meet the rising demand, med-spas with injectables are popping up everywhere. Unfortunately, staff who may have only a passing knowledge of dermatology and facial anatomy are far more likely to simply follow diagrams from the manufacturers and take a paint-by-numbers approach.
The Doctors at CTMAX know faces and will try to get you talking… about what, anything… it doesn’t really matter. The point is for the doctors to see how your face moves, where your asymmetry lies, how your cheeks plump when you smile, and all the other things that make your face uniquely yours.
Done correctly, it should look like the frown lines and crows feet never happened. You should look like you only better, not that you are made of porcelain.
