Katie Holmes’ Tired Face
Examining recent photos of Katie Holmes indicate that she is exhausted and possibly even stressed out. Underneath her eyes look a little dark and hollow, which gives her face a tired, unflattering and old appearance. It is not unusual that life stresses induce fat loss in the face, explains Dr. Payman Simoni, famed Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. “Fat loss in the cheeks and under the eyes are the early signs of aging. Genetic background, nutrition, and environmental stresses are other important factors that contribute to facial fat loss.” Luckily for Katie, there are a few simple procedures she can do to restore her youthful look.
Injectable fillers such as Restylane, refresh and soften this harsh appearance and eliminate under eye dark circles, says Dr. Simoni. This fifteen-minute office procedure has virtually no downtime.
For those who are seeking a more natural approach to facial rejuvenation, Dr. Simoni suggests a person’s own fat as a great alternative to the synthetic injectable fillers. Fat grafting (fat transfer) involves carefully grafting a patient’s own fat into areas of the face or body that will benefit from volume restoration. Fat transfer does not require incisions or sutures.
Looking at Katie’s forehead and eyebrows, it seems she may have had a little too much Botox injected. Overdoing Botox to the forehead could cause the eyebrows to become droopy. For this reason, Dr. Simoni does not recommend using Botox in the corners of the forehead to prevent any chance of sagging. In fact, for people who already have drooping eyebrows, Botox in the right places could be used to lift the area.
Lastly, her smile lines are beginning to create laugh lines that divide her mouth and cheeks. Simply filling these lines can create a smooth and refreshed look immediately. Katie is already starting to show some early signs of facial sagginess. A treatment that Dr. Simoni can advise is, Ultherapy. Ultherapy is an entirely new type of nonsurgical facelift that uses ultrasound to lift, tighten, and tone the skin. This in-office facial treatment takes 30-60 minutes and has no downtime.
