Facial skin rejuvenation is performed to improve the skin’s texture, tone, and contours. Aging effects include drooping of the facial skin, more pronounced discolorations such as age spots and scarring, and texture problems such as wrinkles, creases, and folds. Most of the problems mature adults experience with their facial skin are caused by a combination of environmental factors and a decrease in moisture retention. Collagen production decreases with age, and this amplifies these problems. Facial procedures come in several flavors, each of which targets one or more specific concerns. Below, we describe three of our favorite methods for rejuvenating the facial skin and restoring the features to a more youthful state.
This is actually an umbrella term for the many facial procedures that can enhance one’s appearance. Whether you are interested in a facelift, rhinoplasty, or some other type of facial contouring, we are sure to have a surgical facial procedure that can help you.
Surgical facial procedures can be quite involved, and they’re not suitable for all patients. Some people simply require a non-surgical facial skin rejuvenation procedure, such as micro-needling. This treatment creates many tiny openings in the skin in order to encourage the skin to heal itself. The result is glowing, supple skin that contains more collagen.
A threadlift is a non-surgical procedure that is performed in the comfort of our office utilizing specialized techniques. During this treatment, medical-grade, dissolvable threads are strategically places in certain facial areas in order to tighten and lift the skin.
