Freshen up with facial rejuvenationFacial Rejuvenation

If the scorching, busy summer has left you feeling frazzled or frumpy, consider turning over a new leaf with cosmetic enhancement. The South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery team offers a range of non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures and skin care options to refresh your appearance with minimal recovery and no discomfort. Most non-surgical treatments do not require general anesthesia, some may use local anesthesia, and are nearly painless. With minimal down time and recovery time you’ll be back to school or work in no time, looking and feeling your absolute best.

What Facial Rejuvenation Can Improve

Depending on the specific treatment, facial rejuvenation treatments can improve the appearance of areas affected by sun exposure, aging and hereditary factors without having to undergo plastic surgery. This includes the following conditions:

  • Texture irregularities – wrinkles, fine lines, scars
  • Pigmentation – sun spots, age spots, freckles
  • Vascular lesions – visible blood vessels, blood blisters, flushed face/redness
  • Loss of skin elasticity and healthy tone

Suggested Treatments for Facial Rejuvenation

Injectables are a great way to minimize signs of aging and restore a youthful quality to the face. Botox and dermal filler products can be injected into specific points around the face to smooth wrinkles, fine lines and facial folds. Treatment is quick, minimally invasive and produces great results with no related downtime.

Laser skin resurfacing also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines (as well as hyperpigmentation and areas of sun damage), but using a different method. A laser gently removes the outer layers of skin to reveal fresh, healthy skin underneath.

Another popular laser rejuvenation procedure is the Affirm laser facelift. The Affirm laser improves the tone, texture and pigmentation of the skin by stimulating collagen remodeling in the targeted areas. With increased collagen production, the skin looks and feels smoother and firmer.

Chemical peels deliver incredible anti-aging results. A peel involves the application of a chemical solution to the face, neck, chest, hands, legs or arms; the solution causes the top layer of skin to peel away and reveal new, smoother skin. This alternative to laser treatment reduces fine lines, age spots, scars and wrinkles.

Cheek Enhancement Options

cheek augmentation proceduresNearly everyone finds beautifully defined features such as sharp cheekbones and prominent chin lines attractive. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with angular cheekbones positioned high in the cheek area.  Luckily, South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery offers both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to help you achieve the volume in the cheeks  that you desire.

Cheek Enhancement: Implants

One of the options to restore a volume loss in the cheeks is the use of implants. It is a perfect procedure for people who seek a long-term result with a minimal downtime. During surgery the implant is placed through a small incision in the mouth, lower eyelid, or hairline. All types of incision allow the surgeon to hide the scar and make the result look as natural as possible.  Cheek implants are an effective way to achieve pronounced cheekbones that provide a more aesthetically pleasing contour throughout the entire face. Your cosmetic surgeon may also recommend an adjunct chin implant procedure to balance out facial features and optimize the aesthetic results of the cheek augmentation  procedure.

Cheek Enhancement: Juvéderm Voluma XC

If you’re not ready for a surgical procedure but want to enhance your facial features, injectable fillers might be the perfect solution. They provide instant results, are minimally invasive, and do not require downtime. Injectable fillers can do wonders when it comes to adding subtle definition to the cheekbones and enhancing the look. .

One of the most popular products used for cheek augmentation is JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC. Like its predecessor Juvéderm XC, Juvéderm Voluma XC is an injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. (Hyaluronic acid [HA] is a substance that naturally occurs  in our bodies.   It helps your skin retain moisture and volume, as well as boosts collagen production and provides youthful glow.) While Juvéderm XC is intended for use in filling in fine lines and wrinkles, Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first facial filler that is FDA approved exclusively for use in enhancing the contour of the cheeks. In addition, by enhancing the cheekbone area, Juvéderm Voluma XC provides a subtle lift throughout the cheek area and the lower region of the face, smoothing parentheses lines and nasolabial folds. Thus, some patients may be able to avoid  other facial rejuvenation procedures  simply by undergoing Juvéderm Voluma XC treatment.
