Two Innovative Treatments to Lift Sagging Skin: Master Lift & InstaLift

At Sherman Aesthetic Center, we are always working to provide you with the most advanced, innovative techniques so you can achieve results you deserve! Here are two amazing options for treating the face with a non-surgical face lift that gives you a natural, refreshed appearance.

Master Lift

Master Lift 1, 2, and 3 is a non-surgical face lift that best addresses lines and wrinkles and helps with facial shaping. When you look in the mirror, it’s easy to pick out a flaw or wrinkle that bothers you, like the “parenthesis” or “marionette” lines around your mouth.. You see the wrinkle or line and want to directly fix it. We as Master Injectors are expertly trained to analyze your face. We take a 3-dimensional approach to create optimal facial shaping that may not directly treat the wrinkle but rather indirectly treat the cause of the lines and wrinkles. This next generation 3-dimensional approach is the key that creates a a natural outcome without looking “done”. The “old” way of treating patients with injectables was to address lines or just “caulk” what was bothering them. This idea of just addressing lines rather than looking at the face as a whole lends to under-treating the problem, as well as an unnatural appearance, especially when your face moves with expression. Ultimately, it leads to a less-than-optimal outcome and a dissatisfied patients! Thanks to scientific advances and Dr. Deborah Sherman’s leadership in global training sessions, we now offer a unique and exclusive approach that produces these superior outcomes and our patients tell us they prefer their results compared to their friends that have had facelifts. Our patients are thrilled with less downtime, less expense and a face they are proud to wear every day. The Master Lift is a next-generation approach of treating and lifting the face holistically, instead of just focusing on “the cracks”.  And this is achieved without surgery! It is an innovative injectable treatment series that will address your face as a whole, restoring a rested, healthy, glowing you!

For better understanding, let’s dive deeper. When a Master Injector assesses your needs, she looks at cause and effect. For example, your deep nasolabial folds (the lines that run from your nose down to your mouth) may be a result of a cheek that has fallen, thereby creating heaviness in the lower face. Instead of injecting directly into the fold, your injector may need to address your sagging cheek first which will soften the parentheses around your mouth in a subtle, natural way.

The Master Lift helps you achieve full correction in a series of filler treatments, starting with rebuilding the foundation of your face, then addressing contour, and lastly, refining the details (think about building a house from the foundation up!).  This no-surgery facelift has a high investment for the first year, but has a much lower investment to maintain the structure and contour of your facial shape once the volume is restored.

The good news is that your treatments can be achieved in 3-4 office visits, with little or no downtime. Think of us as your skin fitness trainers to restore and maintain your refreshed face!

Instalift

Sagginess of the face often communicates a tired and old facial message.

InstaLift uses a new category, cutting-edge Micro Suspension Technology to address sagginess in the mid and lower face. By lifting the skin and facial structures and repositioning underlying tissue, you can achieve significant lift and re-volumization. The treatment is performed with local anesthesia (a small numbing shot); no general anesthesia is required, and there are no incisions!

This is how it works: a suspension suture is passed through a small entry point in the skin. Tiny cone structures on the suture lift lax skin and hold the suspension suture in place. The material that InstaLift suspension is made from is 18% poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) and 82% poly-L lactic acid (PLLA), which are essentially scientific words to explain that the device is entirely absorbable.

Over time, the suspension sutures dissolve, but as they dissolve, they stimulate your body to create new collagen! While the physical lifting capacity of the suture itself is diminished as the suture is absorbed, the complementary collagen-stimulating properties of PLLA/PLGA provide re-volumization, to restore the tissue you once had. Sustained recontouring of the treated area remains for 18 to 24 months following the procedure.

InstaLift provides repositioning and recontouring of your face which is what we hope for every morning when we look in the mirror. After treatment, the results will continue to improve over the course of several months. Improvement in skin quality can also occur over time.

After lifting the mid and lower face with InstaLift, filler treatments can complete and refine your lift and optimize your facial shape and message.

Jaw Line Rejuvenation

Q : What bothered you about your jawline/profile? Did you like the way you looked in pictures? Selfies? Mirror? See before photo above.

A : It seemed as though my chin and neck were one, and there was no longer definition between the two. I would loathe looking at photos of myself, as I felt like I was staring at my grandmother.

Q : Would you say the fullness in your lower face made you feel tired? Sad?

A : Yes, both tired and sad. I  was discouraged when my friends would ask me if I were tired or if I didn’t feel well because I looked exhausted.

Q : What made you want to do something about the fullness of your chin?

A : A friend recommended Kybella, an in-office treatment.   I was ready to improve my look of constant fatigue and to improve the definition of my jawline to reveal a more youthful profile.  I went to Dr. Sherman for a consultation and to learn about the science, the success of the trials, the after effects, and the longevity of the results.

Q : Were you surprised there was a non-surgical solution?

A:  Yes. I was surprised that a procedure without surgery could produce a great result.  I can testify to a fantastic result in my case.

Q : Did you notice your jowls? How did they make you feel? 

A : All I could see were my jowls because my face had “dropped” and I looked like I was tired or unhappy. I felt old beyond my years.  All of these emotions combined caused a very real depression. I felt that my former self was lost forever. I wasn’t trying to fabricate youth. My goal was to was to find a means to create a confident version of who I am at the age of 59 and to look well and as good as I can.

Before and After Results

Q : How did you learn about Kybella and what made you trust Dr Sherman that it was safe and effective?

A : I learned of Kybella through a friend. I went to Dr. Sherman because of her excellent reputation. She was recommended to me by a friend. I believe any procedure with this level of precision must be supported and performed by a well-trained and experienced aesthetic doctor, rather than an aesthetician. I think aestheticians can educate, advocate and advise their clients about up-to-date procedures that support a client’s quest for personal care and esteem, but I do not believe they should perform this kind of non-surgical treatment. I strongly believe that an aesthetic physician with an excellent reputation like Dr. Sherman will set realistic expectations  about results.

Q : What was your experience with Kybella?

A : Excellent. I did experience swelling, which was noticeable to my friends and family. I wore scarves and tops to camouflage my neck while it was swollen – only a matter of a week or so.  Regarding results, it was a small change at first. After my first, second and third treatments, I could really see a  difference. I was beyond pleased and amazed.

Q : What was your experience with filler?

A : Again, I believe a  medical professional will realisically explain how these procedures can work in tandem with Kybella. I trusted Dr. Sherman to be judicious and conservative, and she didn’t let me down. Her philosophy to perform this treatment step by step with reevaluation along the way made complete sense to me. It was meaningful  to thoroughly discuss every step for each treatment and to trust the pair of eyes looking at me versus what I saw in the mirror.

Q : How did you feel about the results of the filler jawline rejuvenation procedure?

A : I am extremely satisfied. I could instantly see that the results of my jawline were improved and my jowls had disappeared.  The results were much faster than I anticipated and far preferable to other treatments I knew of.

Q : Was it painful?

A : When you know what to expect, discomfort is more tolerable. My expectation of any discomfort was established before the injections, thanks to Dr. Sherman and her teams’ thorough explanation of the procedure.  Some of it was uncomfortable, but it was never painful. Neither was the aftermath, but I was fully informed so I knew what to expect post-procedure.

Q : Was it easier than surgery?

A : Definitely. I didn’t need a driver nor did I need anyone to stay with me overnight, I didn’t have to stop eating or drinking before my appointment, and most  importantly, I didn’t have to take off work. So I would resoundingly say yes.

Q : Were you glad you did not have to have general anesthesia?

A : Yes. The idea of going under general anesthesia for a cosmetic procedure made me anxious. I always feel off kilter after anesthesia for a couple weeks.

Q : How do you feel about your profile now? Are you more confident to take a photo now or meet someone new?

A : I feel like I look 10 years younger, it’s a pleasure to wear necklaces and open necklines again. I had stopped wearing any of these things as I did not want to draw attention to my neck or the lower half of my face. It has made me very happy to feel more like myself again.

Q : How do the results make you feel?

A : I feel like I am a better version of myself and that I look younger than my age of 59. I no like my profile again, especially since Kybella is a permanent, lifetime result, and retreatment is likely unneeded.

Q : Do you feel more youthful? Or even empowered?

A :  Yes, a confident version of who I am now at this age and stage.

Q : Would you recommend this to somebody else?

A : Absolutely. A procedure with little or no downtime that changes one’s self esteem is definately a win-win. I recommend an evaluation and a treatment plan to anyone who is struggling with the esteem challenges that aging brings, like I was.

Q : Do you feel it is important to go to someone that is an expert? And why?

A : 100%, for the reasons above. These procedures should not be performed on a whim or as a spontaneous decision. Be clear about the professional evaluation and projected results from your Aesthetic Doctor. There will likely be minor corrections once the procedures settle. Be patient. Trust your medical professional . Regular follow-ups and touch-ups are necessary to maintain the success of your treatments and your level of satisfaction.

Brow Lift: Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a brow lift?

A brow lift is a surgical procedure that is performed to return the brow back to its natural, refreshed position. We tend to get horizontal wrinkles across our forehead-why? Because we all tend to raise our brows in order to reduce the fold above our eyes that can begin to affect our peripheral vision (and, lets be honest, raising our brow makes us look better in a selfie). A brow lift relieves this tension by raising the brow-so you don’t constantly flex your forehead muscles that can give you a chronic headache or strain.

2. What is the difference between blepharoplasty and a brow lift?

A Blepharoplasty reduces the fold above the eye by reducing fat pockets and excess skin. The fat pockets come forward as the skin loses elasticity and ages. A brow lift raises the brow to further reduce the fold above the eyes. Our brows fall due to an involuntary muscle pull that often creates the “11’s” between the brows, as well as genetic factors and gravity pulling the brow down.

3. Is a brow lift (forehead lift) better to raise sagging eyelids than a blepharoplasty?

One procedure is not better than the other, rather, they compliment each other. We see a lot of patients who wish for the entire fold above the eye to be gone with a blepharoplasty (reducing the skin above and eye) but here is what most people do not understand- 50% of the fold often is caused by a low brow position. If the brow is not raised, and the entire fold is removed, this would make the brows even lower! Often, combining a brow lift with a blepharoplasty can optimally reduce the lid fold with a natural refreshed look because it keeps your face in it’s natural proportions.

4. Can asymmetric eyes or eyebrows be fixed?

Most of us have some level of asymmetry in our facial anatomy. Surgery may help balance some level of brow asymmetry (and Botox can also play a key role in balancing the brows as well!)

5. Will I have visible scars after surgery?

What can I do to lessen scars? The incisions that are created for the brow lift are hidden in the hairline. Depending on the thickness of the hair in the area will determine visibility. We also have a scar recovery gel that is wonderful to expedite the fading of a scar!

6. Non-surgical ways to help sagging brow area?

Botox is the best non-surgical option to reduce the tension in the brow and as Botox causes the brow depressor muscles relax. Subsequently, you will start to see the lifting muscle in the forehead win the “tug of war” and then you experience the magical “botox brow lift.”

7. What is recovery from brow lift like?

You may have some bruising and swelling after surgery that will resolve in several days as you ice the area.

8. What is an endoscopic brow lift?

An endoscopic brow lift is a procedure that uses a small microscope through 3-5 small incisions in the hairline to place the brows in a natural position. As a Board Certified Oculofacial Surgeon with over 25 years experience, I can tell you with confidence that this can be achieved without the “surprised” look (we all know those people that look like they are in a permanent wind tunnel). An endoscopic brow lift can achieve a refreshed, youthful look , allowing your eyes to again be your best feature as they are the first place someone looks when people meet you.

9. Can you use injectables for a brow lift?

Yes! Although Botox cannot create the lift that a surgical hidden incision brow lift can, it can relax the stressed, tired area between the brows as well as prevent the brow from becoming lower! If you do have a hidden incision endoscopic brow lift procedure, we also encourage you to treat your brow AT LEAST twice a year in order to keep those brows lifted! A brow lift doesn’t stop gravity, nor does it completely eliminate muscular movement between the brows, therefore, Botox is a great partner to the surgery to extend the life of the lift and keep your eyes looking their best.

If you have further questions, all of these can be answered with a customized facial analysis at the Sherman Aesthetic Center to determine what is right for your eyes and your face.

Antioxidants from the Inside Out

TNS_Essential_Serum_1oz_72dpiStarting this journey I knew what antioxidants did for my body but what I didn’t know is what I was missing by not using them on my face and décolleté. For those of you who don’t know, antioxidants play a major role in stopping or limiting the amount of free radicals in our body. What are free radicals? Free radicals are created by oxygen combined with natural chemicals in our body that create oxidation. This oxidation creates changes to the structure of our natural chemicals. After time, they build up and begin to change important structures, like DNA (yikes!).       Scientists say free radicals have a role in the aging process, cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Consuming antioxidants daily will help repair these oxidative damaging cells, instead of letting them build up altered and ready to strike. Here are some ways you can incorporate more antioxidants into your meals.

  • Vitamin A is found in milk, liver, butter and eggs.
  • Vitamin C is found in most fruits and vegetables. Those with the highest amounts of vitamin C include papayas, strawberries, oranges, cantaloupe and kiwi, as well as bell peppers, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, cauliflower and kale.
  • Vitamin E is found in some nuts and seeds, including almonds, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts and peanuts. It can also be found in green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and kale, and in oils, such as soybean, sunflower, corn and canola oils.
  • Beta-carotene is found in colorful fruits and vegetables, including carrots, peas, cantaloupe, apricots, papayas, mangoes, peaches, pumpkin, apricots, broccoli, sweet potatoes and squash. It can also be found in some leafy green vegetables, including beet greens, spinach and kale.
  • Lutein is found in green leafy vegetables, such as spinach, collards and kale, broccoli, corn, peas, papayas and oranges.
  • Lycopene is found in pink and red fruits and vegetables, such as pink grapefruit, watermelon, apricots and tomatoes.
  • Selenium is found in cereals (corn, wheat and rice), nuts, legumes, animal products (beef, fish, turkey, chicken, eggs and cheese), bread and pasta.
      What can antioxidants do for my skin?
      Vitamin C is beneficial to your skin in 4 different ways!
  1. It improves skin by making it firmer and younger in appearance for longer.
  2. It reduces premature aging and wrinkling.
  3. It reduces dark spots and brightens your skin.
  4. It makes your sunscreen even more effective and boosts your skins defense against UV exposure.

 

Vitamin E is one of the most powerful vitamins that helps your skin to fight free radicals and signs of aging. You probably see it added to skin care products. However, the addition of Vitamin E to Vitamin C creates a more powerful effect than when used alone. When used together, both vitamins give off a stronger antioxidant effect. You will experience smoothing benefits and increased rate of cellular repair!

 

Stop by our office and pick up some Antioxidants! Your face will thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions: Lip Augmentation & Enhancement

1. What is the best filler for Lip enhancement?

With a growing number of fillers available, it is even more important to go to a Master Injector who has advanced knowledge to determine which filler will create the most NATURAL looking lips. If you have a more petite lip, or you have very fine lines above the lip your lipstick bleeds into, Restylane Silk or Juvederm Volbella may be the best choice. If you have more youthful lips that need a proportional adjustment with a little extra volume in the upper or lower lip or the mouth corners upturned, Juvederm Ultra may erase your lipstick frustrations.

2. Is lip augmentation permanent?

Although the idea of a permanent lip treatment might initially sound great as it implies a long lasting result, but be aware that permanent treatments can cause permanent problems! Under a surgical procedure, implants can be placed permanently, but will your lip still age around the implant? YES! This means that the implant could show through thinning lip skin and look very strange with time, creating an unnatural appearance. If you use permanent filler, will that create a lip that never ages and does not have to be injected again? No. There is no magic wand that stops time! And permanent filler may create major problems as you age. As the border of the lip ages, permanent filler in the lip starts to look unnatural. The sad truth is that there is really no effective treatment to remove permanent lip filler except to cut it out and no one wants that! Beware of permanent fillers with no treatment option of reversibility!

3. What is the best permanent Lip augmentation option?

In our expert opinion, permanent lip filler is not the best option to give you the most natural lips-lips that age gracefully as you do.

4. What lip filler lasts the longest?

The fillers we recommend that have been FDA approved for lip injections such as Juvederm and Restylane Silk have up to a 1 year indication.

5. How can I get natural looking lips with lip enhancement?

When you come in for a facial analysis at the Sherman Aesthetic Center, a Master Injector will evaluate your lips. Dr. Sherman and her expertly trained Master Injectors will perform an 8 point natural lip analysis to develop a customized natural look for your kissable lips!

6. How can I avoid “over-done” lips?

Stop looking to Kylie Jenner for your example, and start looking at fresh younger, hydrated lips-what do you notice? Do you see that the lines are not as “shriveled” or dehydrated in the body of the lip? That the proportion of the upper and lower lip is balanced? That the corners of the mouth are gently upturned, and that the upper lip has a defined 3-D border  and the lower lip has proportional projection? That natural symmetry is what a Master Injector is trained to create. This creates less work outlining your lip, and more time to try out different colors! Our patients often comment that after the youthful lip boost our Master Injectors create, that for the first time in years, their lips look fresh and youthful with just a touch of clear lip gloss! It reminds them of the lips they had in high school!

7. Can I be allergic to lip fillers?

Allergies to hyaluronic acid fillers are very rare. Hyaluronic acid is a basic building block of skin. It’s found in our joints and connective tissue naturally, so it is very rare for someone to have a reaction to the filler itself. Numbing agents can be applied topically and are in the filler itself. Rarely, individuals may have an allergic reaction to these numbing agents.

8. Who should I trust with my lip augmentation?

Only trust an experienced Master Injector when having your lips injected. A Master Injector, like those at Sherman Aesthetic Center, will give you the most natural enhanced lip with filler, with appropriate proportion and volume. The Master Injector’s at Sherman Aesthetic Center offer a subtle “Youthful Lip Boost,” which is an inexpensive way to soften lip lines and create a more youthful lip.

9. What are the risks and side effects of lip augmentation?

Swelling and bruising are the most common side effects of lip augmentation.

10. What are the aftercare instructions for lip fillers?

You may gently ice your lips after injections.

11. When can I eat after lip augmentation?

You can eat whatever you want, but salty foods and alcohol will may your lips swell even more in the first few days after injection. Sipping through a straw and smoking are not recommended for a few days after your lip injections.

If Double is Your Trouble, Get Kybella for Your Fella!

ba1

It’s possible to make your profile as powerful as your ideas in the workplace. A chiseled jaw line sends a subliminal message of strength…not to mention it adds to a handsome appearance.

Believe it: you can say goodbye to your double chin without surgery.

Chances are, if you have fullness beneath your chin, you don’t love it. The submental fat or “double chin” is an area that is typically resistant to exercise and no respecter of age or weight. Submental fat gives the profile a full look with lack of definition to the jaw line (and often spilling out over a collar and tie.)

With work, school, and the busyness of life, most people don’t have time to spare for surgery recovery.

Enter Kybella: an injectable treatment that dissolves submental fat with no downtime and no surgery! Kybella is deoxycholic acid that destroys fat cells in the double chin…permanently.

Kybella is injected into the submental fat below the chin. Swelling, bruising, tenderness, and numbness are common after treatment. You will not go home with any wraps, dressings, or medications. A little ice and ibuprofen for swelling and mild tenderness are typically all that is needed post-treatment with Kybella.

The number of treatments required depends on how much medication is required and how severe the double chin is. Most patients require two to four treatments, but it could take up to six, with each treatment spaced one to two months apart.

For a limited time*, get $600 of laser photorejuvenation OR two treatments of Botox Cosmetic for crow’s feet ($600 value) FREE when you purchase two Kybella treatments!

Call 615-297-5798 for a consultation to see if Kybella is right for you!

 

*Offer valid through May 6, 2016.

Your New Favorite Product: HA5

HA5

HA5 is the newest advanced topical in hydration, but what have we thought of it so far? Listen to the skincare experts who have tried it:

Dr. Sherman-It feels like I am putting liquid silk on my face!

Allie Schulert, R.N.- I noticed in a matter of minutes the difference it made in my skin! It looked more hydrated and healthy!

Elisabeth Bennett, PA-C-HA5 feels like a make-up primer. I noticed my skin looks healthy all day long and my patients ask if I have changed my make-up….actually, I have changed my skin!

Cindy-I used it one night and my face was changed by the next morning. Next to Botox, it is my favorite product with instant results!

Filler is the go-to product for deep lines and deflation in your cheeks, but why does it create such a natural result? We lose hyaluronic acid as we age-causing deflation of our facial structures, uneven texture, a dull appearance, fine lines and wrinkles. Filler replaces the deep hyaluronic acid –chiseling our cheeks, softening our marionette lines, and augmenting our lips–but our skin on the outside layer still needs topical hydration to fill in fine lines and uneven texture. The combination of treating the inside and out brings a youthful vibrance and structure to our skin.

HA5 goes beyond an ordinary moisturizer-it helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! Past Hyaluronic acid products have been designed to sit on top of the skin which only works temporarily with no long lasting results. Because of the 5 different forms of time released hyaluronic acid, HA5 provides 8 hours of hydration-which allows your makeup to look flawless longer! It is also clinically proven to improve the skin with continued use- this product just continues to get better! If you would like to learn more, click on the link below to see photos demonstrating its unique hydrating mechanism or see a video describing how it works like no other topical. HA5 is available for purchase at Sherman Aesthetic Center! Stop by to get yours. You will love it!

The Big Event

Preparing your face for any special event can be daunting. What if I bruise? What if my skin is peeling when I’m supposed to be glowing for wedding photos? What if my lips walk into the room before I do?!

The best way to prepare for these things is to plan ahead!

A few months before your event, determine what your goals will be. Longer lashes. Smoother skin. Less frown lines. No more mustache. Make a list if you like.

Some procedures can take months of preparation, and others can be done even days before.

We’ll start with the time-consuming procedures.

Hair Removal

If you’re looking to zap unwanted facial hair, you’ll need to start early! Laser hair reduction is a process. Because your hair grows in different cycles, what is zapped with a laser in one treatment will be replaced by hair growing in another cycle. You’ll need 4-6 treatments, each spaced 4 weeks apart. Laser treatments can reduce unwanted DARK hair. Unfortunately, the blondies will not be affected.

 

Peels and Microdermabrasion

For smoother, more evenly toned, glowing skin, a series of chemical peels is a great thing! This is another procedure that is usually a process if you’re looking for improvement of longstanding issues (i.e. dull skin, hyperpigmentation, etc).  The best way to approach peels is to start light and then advance to deeper peels as your skin tolerates it. If you’re getting close to your event date, you can always opt for a lighter peel (with no active flaking) or microdermabrasion to give you a nice glow!

 

Neuromodulators

You’ve heard me talk about the fact that “no two faces are alike” in previous blogs. For this reason, it’s best to try Botox or Dysport at least 3 or 4 months ahead of your event to get the best result for your face. Be very cautious in coming to the office the week or a few days before your event if you’ve never tried toxins before for your frown lines, forehead wrinkles, or crow’s feet. First of all, these treatments take an average of 7-10 days to kick in. Touch-ups can be made by your Master Injector once your Botox or Dysport has kicked in to customize the treatment to YOU! So give yourself a little time to see what treatment pattern works best to give you the best, most refreshed look! You’ll feel more confident in your result for your big day!

 

Facial Fillers

Facial fillers are a beautiful thing. The results are seen instantly and can give life back to your face! While the results are seen immediately, bruising and swelling could hang around for a few weeks after. Give yourself enough time for bruising and swelling to subside…don’t risk a thumb-sized bruise for an important day! I recommend coming in at least one month before to ensure enough time for everything to settle. As always, make sure that you are being injected with the right product by the right person. A Master Injector. Nothing less…this is your face!

 

Skincare

If you think of using toxins and fillers as “sculpting”, think of your skincare as painting the canvas. What lies beneath the surface may look wonderful, but if you’re not taking care of the canvas, you’re not looking at the big picture! Skincare is important! Make sure to ask your Master Injector about what you should be doing for your skin. They can make suggestions and help you choose the right products the day of your visit.

As always, we recommend coming to see us for a free facial analysis to discuss your goals, plans, and to help you with a treatment plan!

Call 615-297-5798 for your FREE facial analysis!
