Why Does Your Skin Need to Be Rejuvenated?
With the holiday season in our rear-view mirrors, the new year is a time of personal reflection, making resolutions for self care and sticking to them. Part of that means taking excellent care of your skin and taking the time to show yourself some love. Winter can be especially harsh on the skin. The cold, dry conditions dehydrate your skin leaving it dry, cracked, and haggard-looking. Since your face and neck are at the highest risk of being directly exposed to the elements, it’s important to do everything you can to protect them.
While moisturizing and drinking plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated is a great place to start, it’s simply not enough. Skin rejuvenation treatments don’t just protect your skin from the damages it incurs during the winter months, it also reverses those damages to make you look and feel younger.
Some people might even exhibit premature signs of aging, especially if they don’t take good care of their skin. It’s important to have a stringent skincare routine in place facial rejuvenation should be a part of that.
There are a few facial rejuvenation procedures that you can have done either independently or in combination with one another to help restore your face to its former glory and prepare it for the summer months.
Eyes and Forehead
Certain parts of the face like around the eyes and the forehead tend to get wrinkled more than others. There’s actually some truth to the old adage, “your face will get stuck like that”. Over time, certain facial expressions can prematurely age you. Thankfully, advances in facial plastic surgery have made it possible for you to do something about this. To eliminate crows’ feet, fine lines, excess skin, dark circles, and puffiness around the eyes, you can undergo either a lower or upper blepharoplasty. Some people combine both treatments in one session. Forehead treatments like Botox or Xeomin are also popular in conjunction with eye treatments to help even and smooth out the look of wrinkles on your face.
Nose and Lips
If your end goal is to create perfect facial symmetry, then a simple rhinoplasty procedure combined with lip injections could be the perfect solution for you. Thanks to a certain famous reality show family, big lips are very much in vogue right now. A lot of people tend to re-contour their noses alongside adding volume to their lips to perfectly achieve the look they want. As always, Dr. Gantous will consult with you beforehand and take the time to examine your facial features, recommend some changes that need to be made, and thoroughly explain the procedural process involved. He’ll also provide you with a specific set of aftercare and recovery instructions if you choose to go through with it.
Neck and Décolleté Area
Women tend to show their age more in the neck and décolleté area than men do. It’s just a simple biological fact. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be corrected. A neck lift is an uncomplicated procedure in which Dr. Gantous will create a small incision on the side of the neck, remove excess fat cells and manipulate the remaining tissue to create a smoother and cohesive look for you. The purpose of this procedure is to remove sagging skin and tighten up the skin under the neck to make you look younger and more radiant.
Cheeks and Chin
Another facial cosmetic combination that can create a more unified and youthful look is re-contouring the cheeks and chin. Whether your goal is to add volume and eliminate a sunken appearance or to remove excess skin and fat cells, cheek and chin augmentation procedures are the right answer.
