May Brings Many Ways to Save on Facial Rejuvenation
Throughout more than thirty years as a plastic surgeon, I’ve found that one of the most common goals my patients have is to look younger. They still feel as vibrant and energetic as they did ten years ago, and they want their outward appearance to match. But even a basic knowledge of cosmetic treatments makes it clear that there isn’t one particular way for patients to achieve this goal—the options span from noninvasive treatments to injections to surgical procedures like my Band Aid Facelift. That’s because every patient is unique; their skin tone, aesthetic goals, signs of aging, and medical needs all impact which procedure I recommend. As a reflection of this, our May specials offer savings on a number of treatments, all of which are geared toward facial rejuvenation.
We all know that as we age, our skin loses its firmness and elasticity, and gravity causes it to sag. A facelift is a highly effective way to correct this problem, but for patients who aren’t yet ready for surgery or those who are seeking to maintain the results of their facelift, Band Aid Skin Tightening can be an ideal solution. The cutting-edge Protégé system sends precisely controlled heat into the deeper layers of the skin. This triggers the body’s production of collagen, the protein that gives skin its youthful firmness. As the collagen continuously develops, the treated skin becomes more firm and wrinkles become smoother, leading to a naturally refreshed look.
Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing
Besides lax skin, another common sign of aging is the development of age spots—small spots where sun exposure over time has made the skin darker than the surrounding skin. Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing is unique because it addresses both age spots and wrinkles, as well as acne scarring. Like Band Aid Skin Tightening, this procedure stimulates the body’s natural collagen production process, which has slowed down with age. The DOT Therapy™ laser sends precisely controlled columns of laser light into the skin while leaving the surrounding skin intact. As a result, the refreshed collagen creates a smoother, more youthful complexion, yet the healing time needed is minimal.
Cosmetic Facial Injections
Perhaps some of the best-known methods for facial rejuvenation are cosmetic facial injections. Botox® and Dysport® are wrinkle-reducing medications that relax the targeted muscles in the faces. This smooths the creases and winkles that have formed as a result of the muscle being contracted or furrowed from years of facial expressions. Dermal fillers like Restylane® and Juvéderm®, on the other hand, restore the youthful volume that is naturally lost from the face as we age. In some cases, these fillers can also be used to subtly plump the lips. Starting on May 1st, 2015, patients can earn special savings on their Dysport® and Restylane® treatments through the new ASPIRE Galderma Rewards program.
