Aging is a part of life, but your skin doesn’t need to know that. Sun exposure, gravity, facial expressions, smoking, and lack of sleep all take their toll on our skin. As we age, our skin becomes more fragile and loses collagen, causing it to sag and appear “aged.”
Facial rejuvenation refers to the combination of cosmetic procedures used to restore your facial features to their youthful appearance. While a facelift is often the foundation for facial rejuvenations, other procedures can complement and enhance the result. Surgical procedures such as eyelid surgery, brow lift, and facial implants, or fat grafting can help correct specific problem areas on the face. Nonsurgical treatments including fillers and fat injections can be used for volume enhancement and wrinkle suppression erasing the process of facial atrophy that accompanies the aging process. Laser skin resurfacing can also be utilized to improve skin texture and correct skin blemishes or age spots.
Careful planning and sequencing of procedures is necessary for facial rejuvenation. Dr. Friedman will thoroughly discuss your case with you and determine the best order of procedures.
Your appearance immediately after facial rejuvenation will depend on the type of facelift performed and the number of associated treatments that are added. Your resurfaced skin may be covered with protective ointment, and in some cases, dressings, tape, or a bandage may be applied. Dr. Friedman and his staff will provide you with all of the proper post-operative care instructions as well as schedule any necessary follow-up appointments.
