It’s safe to say that there are more benefits to growing older than not. However, every passing year can bring a sense of disappointment in terms of how you look. We are now fully engaged in the New Year, which makes it a perfect time to point out that you don’t have to look a year older just because of the passage of time. San Jose plastic surgeon Dr. Regina Rosenthal has helped thousands of men and women enjoy their aging process even more by managing the signs of aging. Here’s how we can help you.
Experience has taught us that people tend to like fast results once they begin to notice lines, wrinkles, and sagging on areas of the face, neck, and hands. There are several fast fixes, though each has its own degree of downtime.
Injectables may be the quickest way to transform an aging face but it must be said that there are limitations to what’s possible with liquid solutions. Using neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport, we can reduce frown lines, lift the brow, and decrease the appearance of certain lines and wrinkles. Many of the signs of aging revolve around fat loss, though. To restore fullness in the mid-face, we use dermal fillers. This treatment is also capable of softening deep creases around the nose and mouth to the face looks fully refreshed but not over-filled.
Laser skin resurfacing is another non-surgical way in which the face can be refreshed. Fractional laser treatments target thousands of pinpoint spots on the epidermis to evoke a healing cascade that includes healthy new collagen. Downtime is typically no more than 5 days. For more dramatic results, some patients choose CO2 resurfacing. This technique virtually vaporizes the superficial layers of tissue to achieve a stronger regenerative process. Downtime after CO2 laser resurfacing may be up to 14 days.
There are so many ways to rejuvenate the face that most people have more than one option they could consider. If you have resolved to make this year different, we can help. Call 408-559-4700 to consult with Dr. Rosenthal about your cosmetic goals.
