As we age, our facial skin begins to sag, look hollowed, or develop lines and creases around our eyes and mouth. Many of our patients with these concerns tell us that they look older than they feel. These patients often consider a facelift, but for some people, the effects of aging are not yet severe enough to warrant a full surgical procedure. Other patients are only concerned about a few, centralized lines. For either of these situations, you may wish to consider Juvéderm®.

In cases of severe aging, our doctors may recommend a facelift for men or facelift for women.
