Chemical Peels: A phenol based chemical peel can cause cardiac complications if the phenol levels in the blood get too high. Other types of chemical peels can be used around the mouth that do not have this risk. Laser resurfacing can also be used to treat wrinkles around the mouth. These treatments can cause color and texture differences in the skin so full face treatment gives a more uniform result. ...Read more

Captique : Captique is hyaluronic acid similar to Restylane (dermal fillers) and juvederm, not widely used anymore. However, with hyaluronic acid fillers, your maintenance should be every 3-9 monthsn (average 4-5 months), you will notice that with repeated injections the length of duration will increase and you may require maintenance less often. Unless your doctor sends you reminders to come back in, your que for coming for a touch up should be as you notice any reappearance of lines, the earlier the better. ...Read more

It : It depends on the depth of the wrinkles, the product that is injected and your particular skin. Captique typically lasts less than one year. There is some evidence that your body may produce some collagen as the filler is replaced that decreases the amount needed. The resorption and the manner in which it goes away is usually gradual. I would tell you to come back when you feel you are starting to notice it and when it bothers you. Hope this helps. ...Read more

The : The lifestyle lift is a revival of a very old facelift procedure--unfortunately. I know of not a single well trained facial plastic surgeon who does this procedure. It is typically considered to be a skin only lift which is a short lived, antiquated intervention for the aging face. We have evolved as a specialty way beyond this type of facelift. More current techniques result in a natrual, lasting result. You can think of this as a minilift-- which only addresses the lower part of the face and not the neck. The droopy eyelids, sagging cheeks and wrinkles would not be helped. Those parts would be handled individually with a blepharoplasty, midface lift, and skin resurfacing. Hope this helps! ...Read more

The risk is real: Botox can reduce facial expressions, but if done correctly the chances are small. Good injectors make sure that there is some movement of the forehead, so that you don't have a frozen look. The risk of injecting Botox around the mouth is that it can cause drooling. Again, if you go with a very experienced injector the risks are lower. ...Read more
