Are you convinced that your facial skin needs some serious rejuvenation treatment but can’t quite make out what solution works best? Well, it is not as difficult as you might think and you can start by taking a good hard look at your facial features in front of a mirror located in a well-lit area. Take it as an opportunity to determine what bothers you and how much happier you would be if you were to do something about it.
- Are your eyebrows and eyelids sagging?
- Do your cheeks seem droopy?
- Are there unsightly marks or lines on your face that you would like to remove?
- Are there wrinkles/age lines around your eyes and lips?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then perhaps now is an excellent time to consider some skin rejuvenation options which include blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), neck lifts and facelifts.
So which facial rejuvenation treatment should you get?
Let us start by getting one thing out of the way — do not use this article (or anything else you might read or see on the Internet) as a substitute for proper medical advice. It is always best to discuss the matter with a reputable cosmetic surgeon. For one thing, they are experts in all manner of facial skin surgery and have in-depth knowledge on the Science behind skin ageing.
Only a board-certified cosmetic surgeon can help you determine which invasive or non-invasive cosmetic surgical treatment is necessary to yield the results that you seek. You might be convinced that all you need is a bit of filler and opt for the cheapest alternative when what you need is facelift surgery.
The following are some of the most popular treatment options when it comes to facial rejuvenation:
Also known as “eyelid surgery”, Blepharoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical treatments for rejuvenating one’s facial features and for a good reason. As the old saying goes — the eyes are the windows to one’s soul and represent a significant part of one’s appearance. Unfortunately, this “window” can show signs of ageing over time due to degrading skin volume and elasticity.
Now the eyes are undoubtedly one of the most prominent features of one’s face. Fortunately, the issues described above can be mitigated through eyelid cosmetic surgery which aims to restore the appearance of the eyes to its’ younger and more desirable state.
Also known as a “Rhytidectomy”, cosmetic surgeons often recommend a facelift to deal with drooping facial skin. That said, one must be careful when considering a facelift surgery as there many ways on how to go about it which include several surgical techniques as well as the application of anti-ageing serum which can differ drastically in terms of formulation.
As you might imagine, some facelift techniques are better than others which again, highlights the importance of seeing a qualified plastic surgeon for the treatment. Ideally, you would want to speak with a surgeon that specialises specifically on facelifts for skin rejuvenation.
If done correctly, a facelift restores “harmony” between all of one’s facial features to create a younger and more radiant-looking skin appearance. In many cases, a facelift is recommended in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation techniques like Blepharoplasty.
Botox skin treatment
A Botox treatment refers to skin rejuvenation technique that revolves around the use of neuromodulations that hinders signals to contracting facial muscles that contribute to the problem of skin ageing. Hence this particular treatment is often recommended by plastic surgeons to patients with excessive wrinkles. In some cases, more invasive surgical treatment might be required to yield any long-term results.
One thing that most people do not know about skin ageing is that it can be attributed to the loss of fat which happens naturally with age. This effect is most evident on one’s face, especially on the cheeks and eyes. To mitigate this problem, cosmetic surgeons can recommend the use of soft tissue fillers to restore fullness or volume on facial skin resulting in a younger and more vibrant appearance.
Fillers work by drawing in moisture from the body and restoring hyaluronan levels in the body. This results in a plumper and smoother skin appearance which help fight off common signs of ageing such as frown lines and wrinkles.
A word of caution
Like any cosmetic surgical treatment, facial rejuvenation is a discretionary procedure and must only be undertaken by someone of reasonably good health. Regardless of what rejuvenation treatment you and your cosmetic surgeon ultimately decide on, due diligence must be taken to ensure that there are no underlying factors that may lead to complications — low immune system, bleeding disorders and the like.
