the anti-aging treatments no one will ever guess you’ve had
Have you heard of ‘tweakments’? It’s the name for non-surgical, subtle enhancements that give your skin a glow without transforming how you look. At Plush.MD we love the natural look. It’s what we do.
Designed for those who want to dial back the years in the most natural-looking way possible, tweakments are the ‘no makeup-makeup’ of injectables. The goal of tweakments isn’t to change the shape and structure of your face. You’ll know you’ve found the perfect tweakment when you look like you, but fresher, tighter, and brighter.
Tweakments are often used as anti-ageing measures. Botox/Dysport/Xeomin can reduce frown lines, fillers can fill up nose-to-mouth lines and re-shape deflated cheeks. However, fillers are also used for enhancing faces of any age – to boost lip shape and cheek definition for young women or creating a more balanced jawline for men and women of all ages.
The goal of a tweakment is not to have overly-plumped lips or a completely smooth face with no expressions — rather, tweakments are small changes that might not even be noticeable to anyone but yourself.
However, you’ll likely notice that your fine lines and dark circles will be diminished, or your jawline will be subtly more defined. You’ll look younger and less tired, without looking unnatural.
When done right, a tweakment strikes the perfect balance between fulfilling the desire to enhance or correct and the need to look natural while doing it.
Don’t forget to use medical grade skincare every day and protect your skin year-round with mineral based sunscreen.
Tweakments won’t transform your look as dramatically as more involved surgical procedures will, but that’s exactly what a lot of people like about them.
Subtlety is key.
Dr. Tanne’s Top 10 Tweakments
Thread Lift – PDO threads are inserted just below the surface of the skin to lift the skin, adding contour and definition to areas like the cheeks, jowls, and jawline, but also in areas around the nose, eyebrows and temples. The thread lift is exactly the type of treatment that can make such a big difference, but also keeps you looking like you.
XO (Exosome) Facial – Microneedling continues to be a hot topic in aesthetic medicine. What is new in microneedling is the addition of exosomes. Exosomes repair, regenerate and rejuvenate skin tissue. Exosomes are the latest proven method to regenerate your skin, reduce wrinkles and age spots, firm and tighten the skin.
Hyperdiluted Radiesse – In recent years, the use of hyperdiluted Radiesse has increased. In this form, it is a skin rejuvenator, rather than a volumizing filler, and it improves skin quality, texture, tone and firmness – – think fine wrinkles, crepiness, acne scars, and cellulite as well as saggy skin. It can be used in the face, neck, décolletage and other areas of the body with beautiful results.
Lip Flip – Using just a few units of Dysport or Xeomin precisely placed along the upper lip relaxes and “flips” the lip to make it more visible. This creates the illusion of fuller lips without increasing volume. The lip flip can also be used to accentuate the results of your lip filler. The results are subtle and highly personalized, looking less “I’ve had something done” and more “I woke up like this.”
A Defined Jawline – A strong jawline in both women and men is a coveted feature. The ideal jawline is a symbol of strength, youth, beauty, and confidence. Several treatments can improve the jawline, including fillers, threads and energy-based skin tightening. Alone or in combination, they add definition, symmetry, balance, or contour to this area, especially in profile.
“Botox” Brow Lift – A “Botox” brow lift treats frown lines between your brows. It also elevates the height of your eyebrows with injections of Botox, Dysport or Xeomin. These shots work by relaxing underlying muscles to smooth your skin on the outside and relaxing the muscles between the brows. Additional Botox can be placed at the tail of the eyebrows to help relax and lift this area as well.
Non-Surgical Nose Job –Injectable filler can correct curves and bumps making your nose appear smaller (even though it’s technically getting bigger). The non-surgical nose job is ideally for someone who has a pronounced bump on the bridge of their nose but can also correct a droopy tip and mildly crooked nose. By filling the area around the bump, you can create the illusion of a perfectly straight nose.
Perfect Lips – Perfect lips are not the same for each person. Age, ethnicity, gender, facial shape and more, all come into play. Instead of striving for dramatic, overdone lips, subtle enhancement and a more natural fullness have become the new dramatic. We love to create lips that you do not even realize have been treated, because they are just that good!
Sculpted Cheeks – What do some of the most beautiful and youthful have in common? Cheeks! Beautiful, full, and well-proportioned cheeks. High cheekbones that are well defined, are typical facial features that are associated with youth, and looking younger. Injectable cheek fillers add structure and definition to your facial contours, stimulating collagen production and strengthening the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Combination Treatments – In many people one tweakment isn’t enough to achieve their desired result. Remember, just plumping up your cheeks won’t give you smooth, radiant skin. Reducing frown lines won’t give you youthful fullness. Several small tweakments usually add up to looking refreshed and natural, rather than overdone.
