Are you happy with your reflection in the mirror? According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, facial rejuvenation, both surgical and non-surgical, experienced a surge in 2012. It’s no surprise why…a rounder, fuller face is a youthful look; a drawn “hollow look” is not.
To turn back the hands of time, surgical procedures can be customized to restore facial geometry and skin tone. By using a combination of endoscopic procedures such as a brow lift with eyelid lifts and a mid-face or full face lift, you can achieve that younger appearance. Fat transfer, which involved the removal and relocation of body fat to plump up an area that has lost volume, helps restore the fullness time has taken away. And, if your focus is the neck and jaw line, laser assisted fat removal has become a very popular method to remove the unsightly double chin or “fatty neck.”
While surgical procedures achieve a more significant and longer lasting improvement, less invasive procedures are a viable alternative. Products like Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse can be injected to restore the appearance of a fuller and more youthful face. These injectables are routinely used in combination with Botox or Dysport, which effectively treat and diminish facial wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes (crow’s feet). Combining injectables with the use of lasers, such as Fraxel, to resurface the skin, produces even more dramatic results. Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing is FDA-approved, and uses fractional laser technology to help restore your skin to its original, perfect texture and achieves smoother, fresher, younger looking skin, improved tone and texture, smaller pores, erasing of unwanted brown spots, acne scars, and surgical scars, and reduces fine line lines and wrinkles.
