Summer Turning into Autumn
We hope you enjoyed your summer and remembered to use sunscreen! But even with proper sunscreen use, cumulative sun damage along with other factors such as smoking, lifestyle choices, and genetics contribute to the inevitable aging process. At South Bay Plastic Surgeons, we call it the 3D's of aging: Deterioration, Deflation, and Descent.
Understanding the "3D's" and the "4R's" of Reversal
What are the 3D's of aging and how can we combat them?
Deterioration: Unwanted changes in the skin's appearance as a result of natural progression, including fine lines, wrinkles, rough texture, uneven skin tone, and laxity.
Deflation: Loss of collagen and elasticity due to cumulative sun damage and other factors such as smoking and age, resulting in lax facial skin and a "deflated balloon" look.
Descent of facial fat pads: Malar or cheek fat pad separates and descends leading to nasal labial folds, marionette lines and jowls.

Combatting the 3 D's of aging with the 4 R's!
Resurface: Improve skin texture with proper skin care, including medical grade products and laser treatments like IPL and CO2 laser resurfacing.
Relax: Temporarily relax contracting muscles that cause unwanted crow's feet, frown lines, forehead lines, and lipstick lines with BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Refill: Restore lost volume (depletion) and redirect descending fat pads with dermal fillers such as RADIESSE®, Restylane®, or JUVÉDERM®.
Redrape: While injectables, laser treatments, and skin care therapies are excellent, plastic surgery can provide longer-lasting results. Contact one of our board-certified plastic surgeons and request a consultationrequest a consultation online or call (310) 784-0644.
