We may not be able to halt the aging process, but we can reduce its effects. You can try at-home solutions for addressing aging indicators, although the older you get, the harder fine lines and wrinkles become to target. Some men and women resort to cosmetic treatments when creams and scrubs provide them with little to no results. Among these options are facial fillers and injectables. In fact, the increasing popularity of non-surgical facial rejuvenation continues to grow in the cosmetic surgery market. Most people can find a less invasive solution to smoothing dynamic facial wrinkles. However, other people who are not achieving the results they want might be better suited for surgery. Are you ready for facelift surgery?
Do You Want More Permanent Results?
Facial injectables are ideal solutions for diminishing fines lines, wrinkles, and creases; however, most of these treatments are temporary. Injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic only provide results that last three months. The constant maintenance and follow-up treatments can become frustrating. Someone who wants more permanent results may need surgery. The outcome of facelift surgery may not be permanent, but it does provide long-lasting facial rejuvenation. With a healthy skin care regimen, facelift patients can enjoy their results for many years!
Non-surgical procedures are designed to smooth facial lines and add fullness to the face but do not correct sagging skin. Patients who have loose, hanging skin on the cheeks, chin, and jowls may need facelift surgery. The procedure can help a person restore their mid and lower face by having the facial tissues tightened and excess skin removed. If a patient has minimal facial sagging limited to the midface, Dr. Wilson can perform a short-scar facelift that is less invasive and expensive. Older patients typically are more suited for a traditional facelift. During a consultation with Dr. Wilson, you can discuss the best technique suited to you and your goals.
Do Want All-Over Facial Rejuvenation?
Often, patients will need a combination of procedures to achieve overall facial rejuvenation. Upper and lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and brow lift surgery are commonly performed with facelift surgery. With these procedures, patients can also reduce skin laxity and wrinkles around the eyes, brows, and along the forehead. Patients who have depressed facial areas can restore volume with fat injections. BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectables can also be used as “touch-ups” for regular facial maintenance.
