There exists in nature an ideal “golden” proportion where visually perfect form meets flawless and efficient function. The graceful curves of a four leaf clover, the perfect symmetry of a butterfly’s wings, and the majestic silhouette of an eagle all adhere to this immutable law. Architects employ this principle to design soothing and visually pleasing spaces. Much in the same way, our cosmetic dentist, Yasaman Roland, DDS, can use the “golden” proportion to reveal your natural facial beauty and optimize function.
Age-Related Facial Changes and Non-Surgical Facelift Treatment
Dr. Roland’s special training allows her to bring non-surgical facelift treatment to her patients. This experience and training is not found in a regular dental office.
As we age, many men and women notice their teeth becoming discolored, however it is sometimes easy to overlook the amount of wear your teeth have sustained over the years. As teeth are worn down over time, the result is not just an older-looking smile but a drastically changed and collapsed facial appearance. This is because facial tissues develop around the framework provided by your bones and teeth. As your teeth change so does this framework, and thus the proportion and shape of your face.
These specific changes can occur:
- Your lips can become thin, compressed, and wrinkled
- Excess fat and skin begin to sag at the jaw line, forming jowls
- A crease develops between your chin and lower lip
- The skin of your lower face becomes collapsed
All of this will result in the appearance of advanced age.
What Are the Benefits of a Non-Surgical Facelift?
Plastic surgery pulls skin and muscle up and back over this collapsed structure, tightening them and cutting away the excess. Conversely, our unique non-surgical facelifts work by restoring your teeth to their natural and proper proportion, and by guiding the bony structures to remodel non-invasively. Your skin and muscles will naturally accommodate to this more youthful structure, facial features will become balanced, and muscles of the face will relax. Now you will have a natural balance between your face and your smile, and a more youthful, vibrant appearance.
Who Is a Candidate for a Non-Surgical Facelift?
Facially developed adult patients who have noticed changes in their smile and facial appearance may be candidates for this method of treatment. One of the most visible signs of aging is a changing smile. As the teeth wear down, the space between the upper and lower jaw becomes smaller and the chin moves closer to the nose. This shift can result in a collapse of the lower third of the face, the appearance of jowls, the development of creasing between the lower lip and chin, emergence of wrinkles, and thinning of the lips. If you are experiencing cosmetic changes like those described, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Roland to determine if a non-surgical facelift can improve your appearance.
How Does a Non-Surgical Facelift Work?
Using minimally invasive techniques such as orthodontic repositioning appliances and natural restorations we can rebuild and rejuvenate the foundation of your smile and face. This “non-surgical facelift” will gently realign nerves and muscles, taking many years off of your appearance, and restoring your “golden” proportion.
