Posted in Non-Surgical
As we age, our face tends to be the first area of our body to show signs of our years spent on this earth. From sunspots, wrinkles, loose skin, volume loss, and prominent facial lines, these pages of our life story can make us look and feel older than we actually are. In the past, the only way to turn back the hands of time was through invasive surgeries. However, now there are convenient and effective non-surgical options to help you achieve younger-looking skin without the expense, lengthy downtime, or scarring of traditional plastic surgery.
At Bay Area Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Gray is an expert in both surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation. In addition to offering traditional surgical options such as facelift, eyelid surgery, or liposuction, Dr. Gray employs non-surgical facial rejuvenation to help his patients reach similar results.
Botox is one of the leading cosmetic procedures to help target deep wrinkles, lines, and bands in the face. It works by temporarily inhibiting the muscles in the skin that create lines and wrinkles, providing you with a smooth, youthful-looking complexion.
If it’s volume loss in the cheeks, jaw, or face that you’re most concerned about, dermal fillers are an excellent option for restoring volume. Dr. Gray offers a variety of dermal fillers. During your consultation, he will evaluate your complexion and help you choose the best type of dermal filler to help address areas of concern on different parts of your face.
FaceTite Skin Tightening
If you’re interested in addressing sagging skin at the jawline and neck, FaceTite Skin Tightening can help you reach your aesthetic goals. FaceTite uses radiofrequency energy to contract the skin. The procedure involves making three small punctures in the face: one beneath the chin and two near the ears. Dr. Gray will use a small pencil-like probe inserted into the skin and another probe that sits on top of the skin. The RF energy will cross between the probes as they’re moved along areas of the face and neck that need tightening. The results are phenomenal, with patients seeing an initial 15% skin tightening and 40% after four months.
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fraction CO2 skin renewal technology helps provide a more even skin tone, smoother texture, tighter skin, and markedly reduced wrinkles. This procedure harnesses precise laser technology to aid in many skin imperfections, including wrinkles, age spots, uneven skin texture, acne scars, crepey skin, and ketoses from sun damage. The laser technology helps stimulate collagen production in your skin which aids in everything from skin texture, color, and tightening.
Dr. Gray also offers facial thread lifting with Silhouette Instalift, a procedure involving the use of dissolvable threads. When inserted into the skin to help lift facial skin, these diminish the appearance of nasolabial folds, jowls, and sagging skin. While the insertion of threads seems invasive, this procedure comes with no scarring, minimal downtime and produces stunning, youthful-looking skin.
