Facial rejuvenation typically focuses on prevention and reduction of wrinkles. Wrinkles are perhaps the most obvious and easily measurable aspects of facial aging, but there are other factors that can contribute to an aged look. Sometimes wrinkles and ﬁne lines are the only sign of facial aging a person would have. This is typical of relatively young people who have spent too much time in the sun without proper UV protection. But more often, wrinkles are just the tip of the iceberg. In fact, reducing or even eliminating wrinkles may sometimes do relatively little to help take years off one’s face. A number of other age-related changes can contribute to facial aging to varying degree, such as skin laxity and sag; muscle laxity, sag, and atrophy; loss and redistribution of facial fat; facial bone growth; and nose drooping.
There are a variety of treatments to correct unwanted skin changes. Some of the most popular treatments are neurotoxin injections, dermal ﬁllers, Laser Pigmentation Removal, and laser treatments. The neurotoxins that we use (Botox Cosmetic and Xeomin) are FDA-approved injectables used to diminish undesirable lines to give a more smooth and youthful appearance. The injection selectively relaxes facial muscles so they do not contract, thus smoothing out existing wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming.
Dermal ﬁller injections are another approach used to help reduce some of the skin changes associated with aging and to correct lines around the mouth. These are injected to reduce or eliminate wrinkles or scar impressions and to enhance lips and tissue volume.
Laser Pigmentation Removal is one of the most effective ways to treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage. These treatments are ideal for any part of your face, neck, and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins), or brown spots.
Laser treatments are a unique, new approach to laser skin enhancement and expand skin care to not only address unwanted signs of aging, but also to help prevent them. Laser treatments can help erase the early signs of photodamage, sun damage, ﬁne lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, rough skin texture, and large pores.
