With natural aging, the skeleton shrinks while the soft tissue envelope (a.k.a., skin and everything under it) expands, sometimes creating a sagging look. This causes predictable changes in how we age, some of which are common to all of us and some of which are affected by our genetics. The fact is, only about 10-20% of how your skin ages is genetic, so while you cannot change your genes, there is so much you can do to optimize how you age. This is why Dr. Day notes there is a stark difference between aging gracefully and aging helplessly. It is also why there is no way to look 20 when you are 50. The structural changes in your face will inevitably make you look older, but we think that older can be better and that you can become even more beautiful with time. True beauty is balance, confidence, and health.
Dr. Day achieves myomodulation of the face through her use of filler; the product is strategically injected to optimize facial muscle movement and thereby achieve complete facial rejuvenation. Fillers are formulated from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body that is responsible for plump, youthful looking skin. All fillers have different densities dictated by the specific cross-linkage of the hyaluronic acid. For lifting and contouring the face, Dr. Day uses denser filler products such as Voluma or Restylane Lyft. These products are specifically formulated to address volume loss and help re-drape the skin.
Ultherapy is unique in that it is the only procedure approved by the FDA for skin tightening and lift without surgery. Ulthera systems harness the reliable power of ultrasound technology to rebuild the supportive collagen fiber network within the skin, leaving you with the lifted and rejuvenated look you have been seeking.
Silhouette InstaLift involves a complete approach to lifting sagging skin and restoring volume. The procedure immediately achieves a youthful lift through the insertion of sutures that reshape the contours of your face. Bi-directional cones anchor your skin upwards for a youthful appearance that lasts. Over time, the sutures stimulate the fibroblasts to produce new collagen, meaning you will continue to age beautifully over time.
EuroThreads are FDA approved to treat loose skin in the face or body by stimulating the production of collagen. The threads are composed of biodegradeable suspension sutures that are either left in place or pulled slightly to achieve a beautifully lifted, youthful appearance.
Thermage was cleared by the FDA in 2002 for use as a non-invasive procedure to smooth and tighten the skin of the face and body. Its unique monopolar capacitive radiofrequency technology safely heats deep layers of skin. This activates the underlying existing collagen and stimulates new collagen growth that often continues for as long as 2-6 months after treatment, meaning results will continue to improve after the initial treatment.
The Fotona 4D Facial Rejuvenation protocol simultaneously targets redness, lines, and wrinkles, and can be used anywhere on the face, chest, or body. The result is a beautiful rejuvenation of the treated area. The Fotona Dynamis Pro provides up to four dimensions of collagen restoration to work on deep, middle, and superficial layers of the skin.
