Those lines and wrinkles on your face may mean that you have lived fully, loved well, and laughed often. They also may mean that you no longer look in the mirror without some sense of frustration. Let’s face it. No matter how many memories are behind facial aging, many people still want to age more gracefully than they are. In our office near San Jose, we offer conservative and surgical options for facial rejuvenation. Here, we discuss what those are, as well as some practical tips for maintaining your aging skin.
Conservative Facial Rejuvenation
Doctors have so many resources available for patients who want to address the signs of aging without surgery. The most popular solutions are the injectables that have been widely used for nearly two decades. Injectables like Botox and other neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and even Kybella double-chin treatment are routinely performed to achieve facial rejuvenation. These treatments are quick, convenient, safe, and some achieve instant results.
Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
Dr. Rosenthal performs surgical facial rejuvenation often. Even with the development of nonsurgical treatments, there are advantages to surgery that can’t be obtained with anything else. Primarily, the benefit of surgical facial rejuvenation is that most procedures never need to be repeated. Done well by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, surgical procedures achieve long-lasting, natural looking results. Procedures that Dr. Rosenthal performs include:
- Brow lift
- Eyelid rejuvenation (blepharoplasty)
- Neck lift
- Face and neck lift
Practical Habits to Manage Aging Skin
Regardless of the professional treatments a person has to manage their aging process, there is value in establishing a few practical habits, too. We trust that our patients understand the vital necessity of daily sunscreen use, so we’re going to skip that to cover a few other suggestions that can be easily overlooked.
- Stay hydrated. The body relies heavily on adequate hydration for proper function. As it pertains to the skin, water is necessary for moisture and provides volume and youthful softness. Even injectable dermal fillers rely on a good supply of water molecules to work optimally.
- Eat well. We’re often reminded that what we eat affects our shape. It also affects our skin. To age more gracefully, we are encouraged to eat foods that are rich in antioxidants. These chemicals combat the free radicals that can deplete the skin and cause premature aging.
- Apply some vitamins! In addition to feeding the skin from the inside out, experts recommend using a vitamin C serum daily. This solution is a gentle form of exfoliation that helps old skin cells slough off. It also promotes collagen production, something that can benefit all adults.
