Over time aging, gravity, and genetics can cause changes to the face such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and unsightly blemishes. Facial rejuvenation encompasses a number of procedures and treatments that can correct the problems of aging skin, providing a much more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by the body. This is injected into areas of the face in order to make the face more full and plump. The filler also softens fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. Fillers are different from Botox, which paralyzes facial muscles and therefore prevents them from creasing the skin. Your doctor can help you decide which fillers are right for you based on your needs.
Fat injections are exactly what they sound like. Fat is taken from one part of your body and injected, or grafted, into the areas of the face that require filling and plumping. The fat comes from your own body so there is no risk of any reaction. A consultation with your doctor can determine if this is the right procedure for you.
Skin resurfacing uses of chemical substances to remove the outermost layer of your skin, including dead skin cells. Dermabrasion involves the use of a rotary wheel at high speeds to remove layers of skin, improving the appearance of skin. Laser treatments can also be used to remove these extra layers of skin. All these treatments improve the overall appearance of the skin, softening fine lines and wrinkles and removing blemishes.
Facial Rejuvenation Surgery
Surgery give longer-lasting results compared to other treatments and can correct more severe signs of aging. Facelifts can lift sagging skin and eliminate deep lines and wrinkles. It can also address the sagging and fat deposits around the neck area. Your doctor can help you decide if surgery is right for you based on your needs.
