Getting through the day can take a toll on our skin. Over time, our skin begins to reflect the enormous everyday stressors of our lives—even the years we’ve already made it through. When aging begins to leave visible signs on our appearance, it can affect our self-esteem and our overall sense of happiness and satisfaction.
At Bay Area Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Gray is an expert in surgical and non-surgical facial and body rejuvenation procedures. His goal is to help you look and feel your absolute best. Read on to discover the benefits of several facial treatments that can help you decide which option is right for you.
Should I Get Facial Rejuvenation?
The question you may be asking yourself now is, “Should I get facial rejuvenation?” You’re not alone. Many women and men struggle to find the right timing and right cosmetic treatment to help rejuvenate and refresh their appearance. Some think that getting the treatment too soon is a waste of time, while others are afraid if they wait too long, their concerns will be too severe to treat.
The truth is the best time for you to get rejuvenation treatment is when you have concerns about your appearance that affect your happiness and/or quality of life.
Two of the most typical reasons that our patients consider facial rejuvenation include:
1. Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles are an inescapable part of the aging experience. The most common wrinkles include frown lines, wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, around the nose and mouth, and along the chin. Wrinkles form when collagen production within the skin begins to decrease.
Dermal fillers help restore your skin’s youthful radiance by adding back volume to the skin with a gel-like substance made of hyaluronic acid.
Botox helps smooth away unwanted lines and wrinkles by disrupting the signal in the muscles that cause the skin to contract, effectively stopping the wrinkles from forming. They also work as an excellent preventative treatment.
2. Uneven Skin Tone and Texture
Uneven skin tone and texture can affect anyone but are most common amongst ages 40 and older. Uneven skin tone is the distortion of your skin’s complexion, meaning you may have rosacea, broken capillaries, dark spots due to sun damage, or other issues involving the tone of your skin. The best treatment to help with uneven skin tone and texture is Chemical Peels.
Chemical peels use a mixture of one or more Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) that effectively brighten the skin and smooth texture irregularities. Chemical peels can even help with painful acne and regulate your skin’s sebum production for fewer breakout occurrences. At Bay Area Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide range of peels to suit your individual needs.
