Ways to improve your neck and jawline

natural makeup beauty eyes and lips female young model Having a strong chin and firm jawline can have a major impact on you/your appearance, especially from the profile. However, the unwanted signs of aging or the development of hair in this area can be problematic for patients. This is why Dr. Bertha Baum and her team in Hallandale and Boca Raton, FL offer a wide selection of treatments to address this specific area.

What are some of the ways to improve the neck and jawline?

  • Kybella® injections: Individuals who have a double chin, or “submental fullness,” may find it almost impossible to improve this area. They may wrongly assume that liposuction of the neck is their only solution. Kybella® is an injectable medication that is used to reduce fat in the chin and jaw area without invasive procedures. The injections are strategically administered into the fat in this area and allow the fat cells to break down and flushed out of the body through the lymphatic system.
  • Skin tightening: Sagging, excess skin in the jaw and chin area can add to you/your aged appearance. Tightening the skin without surgery can be achieved using a treatment known as Ultherapy®. Ultherapy® uses ultrasound energy to penetrate into the skin and stimulate its natural production of collagen and elastin–therefore tightening and firming these trouble spots.
  • Laser therapy: Laser light energy is used in many different ways to improve skin texture and tone. We offer a range of laser therapies, including fractional, CO2 laser, and IPL treatments.
  • Laser hair removal: Men and women with unwanted hair in the chin and jaw area may find themselves constantly plucking hair or shaving the face. Instead, individuals who have unwanted hair in this area may consider talking to the team at Aventura Dermatology about solutions such as laser hair removal. This can permanently eliminate hair in the treatment area!

How Can I Improve My Botox®/Dysport® Results?

Portrait of middle aged model smiling wide and looking aside At Aventura Dermatology, Dr. Bertha Baum and her team in Hallandale and Boca Raton, FL, work with patients to help them choose cosmetic solutions to improve their appearance. Instead of an invasive facelift, many of our patients consider the advantages of aesthetic injectables such as Botox Cosmetic® and Dysport®.

What are Botox Cosmetic® and Dysport®?

These neuromodulators are purified proteins that are injected into muscles to relax them temporarily. By relaxing the muscles, they can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Botox Cosmetic® is one of the most common and popular neuromodulators on the market today. It has been proven to be safe and effective in numerous clinical studies. Dysport® is another popular neuromodulator that is structurally similar to Botox Cosmetic®.

Both of these products are FDA-approved for the treatment of crow’s feet and frown lines. They are also commonly used off-label for other indications such as forehead wrinkles, lip lines, and neck bands.

How can I improve the results I achieve with Botox Cosmetic® and Dysport® injections?

There are a number of things that you can do to help ensure that you get the most from your Botox Cosmetic® and Dysport® injections and ensure they last as long as possible:

  • It is important to select an experienced, reputable injector. Someone who is experienced in injecting Botox Cosmetic® will be able to minimize the risk of side effects and maximize the results of the treatment.
  • Make sure to follow all of the instructions provided by your injector before and after your treatment. This will help to ensure that the injection site is properly prepared and that you do not inadvertently spread the toxin to other areas of your face.
  • Continue to take good care of the skin after your injections. Finally, take care of your skin in the weeks and months following your treatment. A good skincare routine can help to keep your skin looking its best and ensure the benefits of Botox Cosmetic® and Dysport® are maintained as long as possible!

How do you reduce smile lines quickly?

Woman beauty face healthy clean fresh skin natural make up While plastic surgery has been around for decades, it is not always appropriate for each patient. Some patients with the early signs of aging, such as the development of smile lines, may find themselves considering cosmetic injectables. This includes dermal fillers, a popular option for many of our patients at Aventura Dermatology. Dr. Bertha Baum and her team can help patients determine if they can benefit from dermal fillers to smooth away imperfections on the skin and reverse the unwanted signs of aging without plastic surgery.

What are dermal fillers available at Aventura Dermatology?

Men and women in the Hallandale and Boca Raton, FL areas who are interested in turning back the hands of time and reducing the appearance of smile lines will want to ask about our line of dermal fillers used to achieve same-day improvements. We offer a range of dermal fillers to choose from, each one with its own benefits and limitations. Below are just a few of the dermal fillers we utilize with our patients to erase smile lines and other signs of aging on the face:

  • Volbella®
  • Restylane ®
  • Belotero®
  • Vollure®
  • Voluma®
  • Sculptra®

In addition to these brands of dermal fillers and collagen stimulators, we also offer facial fat transfer. This treatment requires the removal of fat from one area of the face or body and the transfer of the same fat cells to areas that require added volume. During an evaluation appointment, Dr. Bertha Baum can determine if a facial fat transfer is more appropriate for a patient’s needs. This particular solution is longer-lasting than dermal fillers, making it a more desirable approach for those who do not want regular injections to maintain their youthful results.

What to expect for results from Sculptra

senior lady looking at camera touching her face Unwanted fine lines and wrinkles often occur on the face as we age, specifically after the age of 30 when our body begins to naturally lose collagen stores. Dr. Bertha Baum and her team at Aventura Dermatology in Boca Raton and Hallandale, FL is a dermatologist who understands the need to counteract these changes to maintain a youthful appearance longer. One way to do this is with cosmetic injectables such as Sculptra, which provide results that don’t require invasive surgeries to achieve.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a noninvasive anti-aging treatment that can help you achieve a youthful look. Sculptra injections are made of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a synthetic material that is gradually absorbed by the body. Sculptra works by stimulating the production of collagen where it is injected, therefore helping to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face.

What can I expect from Sculptra?

While Sculptra can be a great tool for patients experiencing mild to moderate signs of aging, it is important that patients have a good understanding as to what Sculptra can and cannot achieve. Sculptra is a wonderful alternative to traditional plastic surgeries such as facelifts which can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the skin. However, these surgical interventions can result in several complications associated with surgeries, including infection and scarring. Sculptra can provide gradual changes in the appearance of the face over the course of several months as treatments are performed. Patients can then maintain the results and slow the signs of aging afterwards with routine injections performed once or twice a year. Stimulating collagen is a great way to combat the changes that can occur with age.

How do I learn more about Sculptra?

Dr. Bertha Baum and her team at Aventura Dermatology in Boca Raton and Hallandale, FL are here to determine if patients are a good fit for Sculptra injections and other minimally-invasive treatments for aging skin. If you are interested in finding out if you are a good candidate for Sculptra, our team encourages you to call (954) 456-5050 to schedule a consultation visit. We are open to both new and returning patients considering cosmetic dermatology solutions for themselves or their family members.
