Put Your Best Face Forward for the Holidays

Fall is a popular time to undergo a cosmetic enhancement procedure because the results will be here just in time for the holiday season. If you are feeling self-conscious about your facial appearance, and want to correct hollow cheeks and drooping skin, Dr. Boyd can help restore your youthful look with a facelift procedure. A facelift can dramatically change your facial contours, shedding years or even a decade off your face.

Face, Holiday

Get Ready for the Holidays with a Birmingham Facelift

Since the holidays are right around the corner, you might be planning on attending a lot of parties and events with friends, family, and some new faces. To make a lasting impression, a facelift eliminates common signs of aging, including sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Although you may need at least a month before you are fully healed, you will notice outstanding, younger results within a couple of weeks.

If other skin tightening treatments, injectable fillers, or non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures are no longer working to produce the results you desire, facelift surgery may be your next and more practical solution. You will see age-defying results including:

  • Tighter skin around the cheeks
  • Reestablished jaw line
  • Eliminated excess skin, jowls
  • Restored hollow cheeks
  • Overall smoother skin – specifically the forehead and around the eyes

Some patients may also combine this procedure with a brow lift or a series of injectable filler treatments to further enhance their results. This entire process is very effective for fighting some of those pesky, unavoidable signs of aging. Are you ready to restore your younger appearance just in time for the holidays? Contact BOYD today to schedule your initial consultation.

Enhance your Lips with Juvederm Volbella

Full, plump lips are in high demand thanks to celebrities such as the Kardashians, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Lisa Rinna, and more. And with advances in fillers today, there are many options to achieve an enhanced pout. However, only a handful of fillers are specifically formulated to be used in and around the lips, including Juvederm Volbella.

Benefits of Juvederm Volbella

Juvederm Volbella is the first and only Juvederm product formulated specifically to augment the lips and soften lip lines in individuals 21 years and older. Made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), its formula is thinner than others, so it can effectively treat delicate areas such as the lips. It also has a lower HA concentration than other fillers, meaning that less water is attracted to the treatment area, increasing placement control and decreasing swelling and bruising.

Volbella is created using VYCROSS technology, which involves long and short chains of HA, resulting in more lift and longevity than other fillers. In fact, Volbella lasts about twice as long as other products: 12 months compared to 6 months. Volbella is also softer than other products to produce a more natural feel. It also holds its shape to help better define the cupids bow and vermillion border for a pout that pops!

This filler is the longest-lasting dermal filler on the market, and can provide noticeable benefits for a boost in confidence. Because it is made with HA, it is also well tolerated by the body, meaning that treatments can be safely repeated at regular intervals for extended benefits!
