Dr. Tami describes the aging of our skin as the 3 D's; Deflation, Descent and Deterioration. Each aspect of aging is separate from the other and has a unique, non-surgical procedure to improve, repair and restore it. Though each of the D's are separate, they work together to make us look older than we feel or want. As such, you will look more refreshed and youthful when you choose to improve and restore each of the 3 D's as they appear in your face. To help you realize the power of this, imagine an older woman who has had a face lift. The skin is tight but it is old parchment-like skin that is pulled tight and does not result in a youthful outcome. The restoration of volume and repair of the skin is also needed.
Deflation is often the most significant sign of aging and starts in our 30's. Loss of collagen and fat leads to a sunken and tired look. Dermal fillers such as Perlane®, Restylane®, or Radiesse® provide an excellent, natural and immediate restoration to volume loss - with no downtime! Botox and dysport can quickly erase years off your face by smoothing lines and wrinkles in a 15 minute appointment
Descent. Deflation contributes to Descent, though descent can occur on its own. As we age, our hormone levels decrease. This, combined with gravity, genetics and collagen loss lead to Descent. There are only two ways to tighten skin; cut it and pull it tight or heat it. Here at Vitality we use procedures that work in harmony with your body rather than procedures your body has to recover from. Our choice for skin tightening is the newest radiofrequency devise called Venus Freeze. A series of 6-8 Venus treatments provides the stimulation your tissues need to tighten and produce new collegen, with no downtime. This provides a beautiful natural result and a dose of prevention. When tightening is combined with volume restoration the result in synergistic. Dr. Tami is board certified in treating patients with bio-identical hormones and often restoring one's hormone balance will also improve the texture, tone and quality of the skin.
Deterioration. Our skin deteriorates and shows signs of aging with brown spots, redness, enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, rough texture and an overall dullness. This is from the top layer of the skin, the keratinized layer, turning over and rejuvenating itself on a much longer cycle than when we were young. Additionally, UV radiation, stress, less than optimal nutrition etc also contribute to the appearance and health of the skin.
