The first bodily feature that a person will look at when interacting with others is the face. It is a unique, identifying characteristic of the body that sets us apart from others. Those individuals who have skin irregularities, such as skin disorders, wrinkles from aging, sun damage, and acne scars, may have a decrease in confidence and a negative self-image. Also, the appearance of your skin could affect relationships, employment opportunities, and other factors in life. Fortunately, with modern techniques and a board-certified plastic surgeon, there are many surgical and non-surgical treatment options that can be customized to you.
Some of the surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty, brow lift, and facelift surgery will target specific areas that need correcting. For example, eyelid surgery can eliminate excess skin, puffiness, and bags under the eyes. Brow lift surgery raises the skin on the forehead to eliminate sagging above the brows and restores a more refreshed appearance. Furthermore, facelift surgery repositions the midface and neck to achieve a refreshed, natural-looking face. If you are looking for a more youthful appearance, then one or more of these procedures could be right for you.
Non-surgical procedures can be used to increase volume, decrease wrinkles and folds, and remove marks on the face. Such procedures include injectable treatments, photofacials, and chemical peels to enhance your facial appearance. Injectables like BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® temporarily improve the look of wrinkles and lines on the face. Dark spots and rosacea can be corrected with photofacial treatments by using pulses of light to reach the deep layers of the skin. Chemical peels contribute to a rejuvenated face by smoothing your skin, evening out your skin tone, and producing the perfect glow. When searching for a less-invasive approach to improving the appearance of your skin, a non-surgical treatment could be what you need.
Each treatment and procedure is as unique as the individual. Developing a list of goals you want to achieve and consulting with Dr. Hiatt will determine which treatment plan is best for you. Whether you choose surgical, non-surgical, or a combination of the two, you can achieve the complete facial rejuvenation you desire.
