Facial aging is a fascinatingly complex process, which is much more than skin deep, yet most of us focus on the surface of the skin when it comes to addressing the aging process.
Form our medical knowledge of facial anatomy and aging phenomenon, we know that facial aging is far more than skin deep and occurs in many dimensions; starting in the surface and involving deeper tissues, the entire dermis, fat, muscle and bone below the skin.
For the purpose of addressing facial aging with cosmetic skin treatments Dr. Malik divides the facial aging process into three dimensions or 3D facial aging. YOUR most natural looking 3D FACIAL REJUVENATION skin treatment plan is based on YOUR 3D facial aging and .
The Three Dimensions of Facial Aging Involve:
