Our faces are an important part of how we present ourselves to the world. Think of all the emotions and expressions we make on a daily basis. From our eyes to our smile, keeping that skin healthy is vital. Sun, skin disorders, aging, and even genetics can all contribute to textural irregularities like wrinkles, scarring, and loss of elasticity. Skin can feel less firm and lose that healthy youthful glow. If this describes you, a facial rejuvenation might be right for you and your skin.
What Is Facial Rejuvenation?
Facial rejuvenation is a broad term used to describe any cosmetic treatment that renews the surface appearance of the facial skin. These treatments vary and can be surgical or non-surgical and aim to target problem areas or provide general enhancements.
Rejuvenation treatments aim to regenerate the skin and can improve texture and tone while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Facial rejuvenation helps the skin’s ability to heal and make new skin cells, which can in turn give you youthful and radiant skin.
Is Facial Rejuvenation Right for Me?
There are many ways you can benefit from rejuvenation treatments. Whether you’re ready to start treatments or just now looking into what is available to you, here are some signs you should consider facial rejuvenation treatment:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loss of skin firmness and structure
- Uneven tone or texture
- Acne or scarring
- Dark spots or blemishes
- Sun damage
Facial rejuvenation treatments can help you put your best face forward.
Types of Treatments
Just as our faces are all unique, the various types of facial rejuvenation treatments you can find are, too. The specific type of treatment that will best address your concerns can be determined after a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Mazaheri.
Facial injectables are a gel-like robust formulation of hyaluronic acid used to treat the lips, cheeks, nose, and mouth. These gels help add subtle volume to smooth lines and wrinkles and contour to the cheeks. By restoring lost volume on the face, the injectables fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. The procedure takes 15 minutes at most and can last as long as one year.
Facial injectables are injected into various areas on the face—around the eyes, jaw, lips, and forehead. The specific area and the number of injections administered depend on your desired results and the types of injectables used.
Dr. Mazaheri is an expert on facial anatomy and is expertly qualified to perform this non-surgical and minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure using one of the injectables below.
- Juvederm Volbella XC
This gel injectable was created specifically to add volume to the areas around the lips and mouth while softening the appearance of lines.
- Juvederm Voluma XC
This injectable adds volume under the surface of the cheek to lift and contour sagging skin caused by aging.
- Juvederm Ultra
This injectable adds volume to smooth lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
A neurotoxin is a prescription medication that blocks the release of chemicals that causes muscle contractions in the face. These muscle contractions are what causes frown lines to form. Neurotoxins help soften those frown lines.
Frowning and squinting are two of the underlying causes of frown lines. This injectable reduces muscle activity, working to smooth out the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles on the forehead and between brows.
Dr. Mazaheri administers a series of injections to the troubled area. The entire procedure takes 10 to 15 minutes and results can last as long as six months.
Facelifts target specific facial issues. A facelift can help smooth loose skin on the neck and face, remove excess fat, and tighten tissue. This can lead to a firmer and fresher appearance of the skin with natural-looking results.
Facelifts are a bit more invasive in that they are surgical procedures. There are many techniques; some remove or add fat, some reposition facial tissue. Incisions depend on the targeted area and the specific desired results.
How Long Do Treatments Last?
Since not all treatments are the same, the results vary as well. Facial injectables can last up to a year or more, while neurotoxin treatments last four to six months.
Facial rejuvenation results can be enhanced with skincare products, proper hydration, enough sleep, and a healthy diet.
Not everyone responds the same to treatment. Your doctor should be able to better help you get the results you’re looking for and be able to set expectations on how long the results will last.
