As we age, our skin changes. Lines and wrinkles form, and the skin can start to sag. It’s partly due to a decrease in collagen production, which happens naturally over time. Facial rejuvenation treatments help restore a youthful appearance by stimulating collagen production and other beneficial effects. However, finding a reliable facial rejuvenation specialist would be best. Book an appointment with Dr. Kenneth W. Sanders. If you’re considering facial rejuvenation, here are some of the key benefits you can expect to see.
Reduced Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles with Botox Treatment
One of the best benefits of facial rejuvenation is the reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead. Facial expressions like smiling, frowning, squinting, etc., cause fine lines to form, which deepen as we age.
Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles which cause them. A single treatment with Botox has been clinically proven to last up to 4 months, so you can smile, frown, squint, etc., as much as you’d like without worrying about lines and wrinkles reappearing.
Smoothed Out Forehead Lines with Fillers
Facial rejuvenation procedures also result in less severe-looking forehead lines caused by habitual facial expressions like frowning, scowling, etc. These “dynamic” wrinkles form over time (and are treated with Botox) but are also filled in to make them less noticeable. Fillers will fill these lines, resulting in a smooth, even appearance.
Lifted Skin and Improved Texture with Laser Treatments
Another benefit of facial rejuvenation is lifted skin and improved texture. You can achieve this through various laser treatments that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for helping to maintain healthy-looking skin.
As we age, our body produces less collagen, which can cause saggy or loose-looking skin in some areas. Laser rejuvenation procedures increase blood flow to the treated area(s) to promote new collagen production, resulting in tighter, smoother skin.
New, Fuller Lips with Fat Transfer
Fat transfer is a simple and effective way to rejuvenate the look of your lips. Over time, we lose volume and definition in our lips as we age and develop fine lines and wrinkles. It makes them appear thinner and flatter than they once were. Fat transfer involves removing fatty deposits from other areas of the body (like the abdomen and hips), purifying them, and then re-injecting them into the lips. The natural, soft effects of fat transfer help add volume and shape to your lips for a younger look.
Reduced Appearance of Sun Spots with Laser Treatments
Sunspots are a typical sign of aging, but they can be treated with facial rejuvenation procedures. Laser skin resurfacing helps to reduce their appearance by removing the top layers of your skin, which results in a smoother and brighter-looking complexion. In some cases, laser treatments also benefit from preventing or slowing the formation of future sunspots.
Facial rejuvenation treatments offer a variety of benefits that can help you achieve a more youthful appearance. Botox treatment can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, fillers can smooth out forehead lines, laser treatments can stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture, and fat transfer can add volume to lips for a fuller look. Additionally, sunspot removal treatments are available with laser resurfacing procedures.
