Your skin is designed to protect your entire body and, as your largest organ, the one most at risk for environmental damage. As you age, your skin begins to slow down production of its own natural protection: its supply of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastins begins to decrease, causing your skin to loosen and sag, lose critical volume and develop wrinkles and creases.
At Farber Plastic Surgery, Dr. Scott T. Farber, a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, and a Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, offers a comprehensive three-step process to facial rejuvenation by way of both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Dr. Farber recommends a series of ancillary treatments that complement and enhance the surgical facelift and can be performed alone or in conjunction with your facelift. They include:
- Skin Care – Caring for the outer layers of your skin, and addressing any hyperpigmentation, scars, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles or other marks on the skin is achieved by methods such as:
- Chemical peels
- Laser treatments
- Daily Skin care products such as ZO® Skin Health
- 2. Volume – Restoring fullness to the areas where your natural volume has been lost is achieved through such procedures as fat grafting or the use of injectable dermal fillers, such as Voluma®, Restylane®, Juvederm®, Sculptra® and other similar products to restore a natural and more youthful facial contour. Dr. Farber’s extensive expertise with the wide range of products available assures you that he will help you select the best treatment for your particular goals and concerns.
- 3. Facelift – The surgical facelift is the final and most definitive step in the rejuvenation process, eliminating wrinkles and creases, and removing loose and sagging skin, while lifting the facial features, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance.
The combination of three forms of skin rejuvenation methods provides the most comprehensive approach available to achieve dramatic results that make you look naturally more youthful.
