Facial Rejuvenation Treatments
There is no such as the “right age” when it comes to scheduling a face lift. Everyone’s decision making process is going to be much different in this regard. Before deciding on a face lift, the person must take the time to look in the mirror and evaluate their personal appearance.
Those who decide to embark on the facial rejuvenation treatments journey without the use of a face lift can utilize any number of treatments. If you are after a more youthful look and do not wish to schedule a face lift, these treatments can offer the necessary assistance.
Wrinkles and fine lines appear more often as we age. The effects that are caused by the passage of time are difficult to ignore. Direct exposure to the elements can hasten this process. While there is no “right” or “wrong” time to consider a face lift, there are some who may decide that a mini face lift is the best choice.
Most start to consider the benefits of a face lift when they are in their 30’s or 40’s. A full face lift is a more invasive procedure and it is easy to see why the mini face lift is chosen by so many. The results are more limited but the patient’s appearance is more youthful.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
This is a treatment that has grown in popularity. If fine lines and wrinkles need to be smoothed out, this nonsurgical method can work wonders. Acne scars, sagging skin, age spots and sun damage are also treated with laser skin resurfacing. Procedures of this nature are designed to heat the skin and spur the collagen beneath the surface into action. This procedure will also even out the texture of the skin.
The rhinoplasty (also known as a “nose job”) is a common procedure for patients looking to repair a deviated septum or correct their improper breathing. Meanwhile, dermal fillers are considered to be a popular alternative because they allow patients to avoid a more serious surgical commitment. In some instances, the patient can receive a dermal filler during their lunch break and head right back to the office.
Injectable fillers are the top choice for any patient that is looking to restore their volume. Deep facial creases are treated with the use of injectable fillers and best of all, there is vert little downtime. Patients resume their normal routine once the procedure is complete.
Upper eyelid skin naturally begins to droop during the aging process. In extreme cases, the loss of elasticity makes it harder for the patient to see. Thanks to eyelid surgery, this area can be restored. Sagging skin, puffy skin and wrinkles are also addressed.
While it is not always easy to decide on the proper age for a face lift, each patient must make a choice that they can feel comfortable with. Be sure to take a closer look at each of the aforementioned procedures, so that you can choose the one that is best for you.
