March Manness: Face It, Guys

Posted On: March 22, 2016

Has March got you seeing everything in brackets? While they may be a good thing for your Final Four picks, they’re not so great when they’re on your face. Many people call them parenthesis, but no matter what punctuation you think they resemble, the deep wrinkles—known as nasolabial folds in medical circles and as “smile lines” to people who like to put a positive spin on everything—make you look older. And they’re not the only thing adding years to your appearance.

A few fine lines here and there can make you look distinguished and experienced, but too many can start to resemble a leather catcher’s mitt. (Sorry about the baseball reference. We’ll get back to hoops.) Add to that the spots and scars that develop over time, and you’ve got facial skin that’s telling your life story to everyone you meet, whether they want to hear it or not: “Once upon a time, this guy was rundown, tired, and just plain old … .”

Facial rejuvenation will steal the ball back from Father Time and put it back in your court. Dermal fillers can handle even deeper lines, BOTOX® can help with crow’s feet and more, and skin resurfacing can even out tone, reduce the appearance of all kinds of marks and wrinkles, and give you an overall more youthful glow. These treatments work great as a team, making them a perfect pick for March—or any time of year.

Expert injectors and board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Brad Bengtson and Dr. Ryan Mitchell offer Juvéderm®, state of the art laser skin resurfacing, and BOTOX® Cosmetic at Grand Rapids’ Bengtson Center. For more information about any of these treatments, schedule a consultation online or call (616) 588-8880. The toll-free number is 1-877-822-8880.
