It’s true that there’s no way to repair the skin, especially from damage caused by what is essentially aging. But there are new ways—and new combinations of ways—for people to look as young as they feel. Dr. Mark Berkowitz, a Board Certified and fellowship-trained oculofacial cosmetic surgeon in Detroit, Michigan, is using his expertise to bring some of those techniques to an area familiar with the challenges that come with the changing seasons.
Having worked in the Detroit area for a number years, Dr. Berkowitz recognized the rising demand for trendy, but effective, fillers. And it’s easy to see why such fillers would be popular: they allow patients to achieve quick results with minimal invasiveness.
That’s appealing in a bustling area such as Detroit, which despite some diminishing remains the economic center of Michigan. But with a growing market, Dr. Berkowitz also offers his clients a wide variety of liquid facelift options. While most people assume that dermal fillers begin and end with media darling Botox, but that’s incorrect on a number of levels. Primarily, Botox works by limiting muscle movement to eliminate wrinkles, whereas fillers replenish or replace elements lost through aging.
When it comes to true fillers, Accents Cosmetic Surgery offers everything from Juvederm to Artefill to Radiesse and more. This market is so diverse that it encompasses everything from artificial filler to the injection of your own purified blood back into your face (known as a Vampire Facelift). Dr. Berkowitz and his practice bring these options to his clients, fostering industry growth, and increasing the awareness of Detroit residents about these dermal filler options.
Most fillers also offer an excellent safety profile, as many are created using natural products, or products created from the patient’s own organic materials. Fillers are also versatile: they can be injected to eliminate creases and wrinkles, but also to smooth out the skin or even increase the size of the lips.
Berkowitz notes that facial fillers make up a large percentage of his business, and he intends to continue offering the procedures. The demand is there, after all, and it’s difficult to see liquid facelift or dermal filler procedures falling by the way side any time soon. They’re here to stay.
