No matter how well you take care of your skin, time eventually takes its toll. Between the natural aging process and sunlight, climate conditions, smoke, and even the foods and beverages you consume, your facial appearance may not represent the age you feel inside.
If you’re ready to turn back the hands of time before the fall and winter holiday season, the expert providers at Carl N. Williams Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, Nevada, have a solution that addresses many age-related skin concerns, leaving you with healthier skin and a more youthful appearance: facial rejuvenation.
Rather than one treatment, facial rejuvenation describes a collection of aesthetic treatments. Your provider customizes a personal treatment plan based on your skin type and goals, combining treatments to improve your skin and rejuvenate your face. These may include:
- Neuromodulator injectables like Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®
- Dermal fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane®
- Laser treatments like skin resurfacing and Fraxel® laser treatments
- Radiofrequency treatments like ThermiSmooth®
If you want to face the holidays with a younger, healthier-looking appearance, here’s how facial rejuvenation can help.
Say goodbye to sun damage
The sun’s ultraviolet rays damage your skin, and there’s lots of sun in Las Vegas! Over time, sun exposure causes photoaging, or premature aging of your skin. You can counteract these effects and say goodbye to sun damage with facial rejuvenation.
Using laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Williams eliminates sunspots and other pigmentation problems you may have. The result? More even, balanced skin tone and a more youthful face.
Minimize lines and wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles, like crow’s feet and frown lines, appear as a result of the facial expressions you make. When you’re young, your skin has strong elasticity, meaning it moves and changes to create lines that make the expression and then smooths out again.
But as you get older, your skin naturally loses its elasticity. As a result, dynamic lines and wrinkles become etched in place, evident even when you’re not making a facial expression.
The good news is that injectable facial rejuvenation treatments like Botox and Dysport help minimize the appearance of these lines and wrinkles by preventing your muscles from contracting as deeply. It’s a great way to safely and effectively turn back the hands of time.
Add volume where you need it
As you age, your layers of fat and the cushioning from collagen diminish. In your face, this leaves you with hollow cheeks and temples. It also causes your skin to sag and your lips to thin.
Facial rejuvenation that includes dermal fillers is a great solution for lost volume. Depending on your needs, we can fill in sunken cheeks, add contours where you need them most, and plump up thinning lips.
Diminish creases and folds
Because the skin between your mouth and nose is thicker than the rest of your facial skin, the smiles and other facial expressions you make create deeper creases and folds. These marionette lines run from your nose to the corners of your mouth, and they can add years to your appearance.
Facial rejuvenation can diminish the appearance of these difficult-to-treat creases and folds by tightening up your skin while also filling in hollow areas.
Smooth away acne scars and other textural troubles
Acne may be long behind you, but the scars it leaves behind can stay a lifetime. Different facial rejuvenation therapies, including the Fraxel laser, work to smooth away acne scars and other texture issues in different ways. Dr. Williams and his team help you choose the right ones so you can reach your goals.
