Facial Rejuvenation Offers Many Choices

If you are interested in looking younger or in restoring your appearance to a younger age than facial rejuvenation may be the answer to your needs. Facial rejuvenation includes a variety of treatments including long-term plastic surgery. However, facial rejuvenation involves a much less invasive mid-range surgical procedure opposed to a full face lift.

Facial rejuvenation can include a non invasive procedure or a minimally invasive treatment. These procedures include topical treatments and spa treatments. It also includes lasers, energy treatments, injections, or surgery. If a patient determines a chemical pill is the best form of treatment s/he will have a chemical solution applied to the skin. This results in the dead layer on the skin’s surface will dissolve. These are more for superficial rejuvenation. Although deeper peels are available they have mostly been replaced by lasers.

Laser and energy treatments use laser, energy, or pulsed light. This is intended to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. This treatment is good to even the skin tone, remove dark spots, and reduce the size of wrinkles. Microdermabrasion uses an abrasive gel to remove the top layer of the skin. This encourages new growth as well as working to improve the skin’s texture.

There are also topical creams that can be used as a part of the overall rejuvenation regimen. These can include anything from a sunscreen to Retin-A which requires a prescription. Dermal fillers and injectables are other forms of facial rejuvenation. These include such fillers as Botox and Collagen. There are a variety of injectibles. Some work to plump up wrinkles. Others work to immobilize muscles which prevents the appearance of wrinkles. Austin Aesthetics also proudly offers the brand new stem cell skin therapy.

The final choice is cosmetic surgery. This is the most invasive of the facial rejuvenation choices. It also offers the most dramatic results. This is the choice for people who have very loose and sagging skin.
