Understanding the Aging Process and Facial Rejuvenation
With all the hype over the internet and television, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and not know where to start in your journey to improve your appearance. As technology and surgical techniques evolve and improve, more people are asking for quicker procedures that involve a short recovery and still achieve long-lasting results. I am a big advocate and frequently perform non-invasive-minimal-downtime procedures such as soft tissue filler, Botox injections, chemical peels and laser. These are key components for a complete treatment and prevention of facial again. So why would someone bother doing a facelift?
A good facelift should address the muscular layer of the face and restore its position to a more youthful one. These will correct the neck lines and folds, jowls, reestablish cheek contour and soften the folds around the mouth. I work exclusively on face and neck, and my treatment plans are individualized to each patient based on their goals and needs. My expertise and comfort level when preforming facelifts allow me to create a natural-looking and long-lasting result.
