Our face is one of the most distinguishing features on our entire body. However, as we grow older, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of aging appear. Age, sun exposure, smoking, and other factors can all contribute to this appearance. While there are those who choose to accept aging as a way of life, many people have been seeking cosmetic surgeons or dermatologists to find how they can recapture their youth. Cosmetic surgery procedures offer several techniques that can help restore a youthful appearance to faces. These are known as facial rejuvenation treatments.
Thanks to modern skin care technology, the effects of aging on the skin caused by heredity, lifestyle, and environmental factors no longer have to be accepted as permanent. Today there are many facial rejuvenation options for individuals who would like to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, treat skin problems such as acne and rosacea, or enhance their facial skin care regimen to achieve a look that’s healthy and natural.
While some of these facial rejuvenation procedures involve surgery, like face lifts and dermabrasion, more and more minimally invasive procedures have emerged. Procedures like facial rejuvenation require no incisions and may not require anesthesia, plus these patients experience minimal, or no downtime at all. Minimally-invasive procedures are gaining in popularity. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, almost 14 million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in 2011, up 5 percent from 2010. The top minimally invasive procedures performed for facial rejuvenation: Chemical Peel and microdermabrasion.
With the increasing popularity of various cosmetic surgery procedures, including facial rejuvenation, it is important that the prospective patient research and understand different issues like what the procedure can and cannot treat, inherent risks, costs, and other factors. Keep in mind, cosmetic surgery is just that – a surgical procedure whose results cannot simply be erased. So when considering this or any other cosmetic procedure, we recommend that you consult a qualified provider with significant experience. Then only you will get better treatment and best result.
