Who Is a Good Candidate for Facial Rejuvenation?
Patients have more treatment options than ever before when it comes to facial rejuvenation. Although traditional cosmetic surgery is still available and effective, many people are opting for less invasive treatments and procedures that allow them to return to their daily lives more quickly and with fewer complications. Here at Chase Lay MD, we are proud to offer a wide variety of rejuvenative options for the face and encourage you to learn more about them.
What are My Options for Facial Rejuvenation?
Here are four of our popular treatment choices that can help you look like a more youthful and energetic version of yourself:
- Purified Protein Serums – With purified protein serums such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin®, and Dysport®, you can mitigate the appearance of dynamic wrinkles in various areas of the face. Dynamic wrinkles occur in the skin from the constant contraction of facial muscles that form expressions. Purified protein serums block nerve signals from causing these muscles to contract, thus preserving the smoothness of your skin. The results of these treatments last for about three to four months and require follow-up sessions to maintain the optimal effect.
- Dermal Fillers – Dermal fillers such as Restylane are used to provide volume to more sunken areas of the face. They are comprised of a gel solution mixed with a quantity of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the body that assists in hydration by attracting water molecules. Other, heavier fillers contain Calcium Hydroxylapatite, a substance commonly found in bones.
- Fat Transfer – A fat transfer helps provide natural volume to region of the face that have lost it, such as the cheeks or orbital area. This procedure uses the patient’s own fat, ensuring virtually no risk of adverse reaction or side effect. Dr. Lay uses the Adivive™ Fat Transfer System to enhance the survival rate of fat cells by improving their health and survival.
- Sculptra® – This extraordinary treatment integrates with deep facial tissue to reduce the signs of aging and restore a youthful glow. It works to increase the production of collagen, the key protein responsible for the suppleness and structural integrity of the skin.
