About Facelift Surgery
If you’re considering a facelift, you’re not alone — facelifts were one of the top five cosmetic procedures performed in 2016, because women and men want to improve their appearance by eliminating wrinkles and sagging skin. At Strax Rejuvenation in Lauderhill, Florida, the expert surgeons offer two options: a surgical facelift and noninvasive laser skin rejuvenation. Contact the office to schedule an appointment; the expert team of physicians are here to talk about how you can gain a more youthful appearance.
What happens to facial features over time?
Even if you have good genes, you can’t fight the natural impact of time. As you get older, skin becomes thinner and less hydrated. It produces less collagen and elastin, so it loses strength and elasticity. The cushioning layer of fat also diminishes, adding to the overall effect — loose, sagging skin, jowls, a double chin, and wrinkles.
One of the most important factors in skin aging is exposure to ultraviolet light from sunlight and tanning beds. Everyone is susceptible to the wrinkles, brown spots, and skin degradation caused by ultraviolet light, but it’s a huge challenge for those living in sunny regions like Florida. Protecting your skin from ultraviolet light is one of the best ways to maintain a youthful appearance, but if the damage has already been done, a facelift can help.
What can be achieved with a surgical facelift?
A facelift is surgery designed to diminish the signs of aging in your face and neck, as well as rejuvenate your appearance. A facelift removes excess skin and fat, tighten muscles and underlying tissues, and generally lift and tighten your face and neck.
In the hands of the experienced doctors at Strax Rejuvenation, you’ll regain a more youthful appearance, while keeping your normal appearance. A facelift doesn’t change the shape of natural features such as your eyebrows, eyelids, nose, or chin. If you’re considering a brow lift, a chin implant, or would like to make improvements in your eyelids or nose, the expert surgeons at Strax Rejuvenation can help with that too. They often do these additional procedures at the same time as your facelift.
What is a noninvasive facelift?
If you’re not ready for a surgical facelift, you have options at Strax Rejuvenation in the form of a noninvasive laser, the Fraxel® DUAL fractional laser. Treatment with this advanced laser can:
- Diminish fine to moderate lines and wrinkles
- Improve skin texture
- Eliminate or diminish brown spots and sun spots
- Treat scars from acne, trauma, or surgery
Skin resurfacing: The Fraxel DUAL laser gently resurfaces your skin from the inside out. The laser naturally stimulates collagen production and the growth of new, healthy skin. As a result, you’ll see improved texture and smoother skin. Following treatment with the Fraxel DUAL, you may have a few days of downtime due to redness and mild swelling, but you can look forward to ongoing improvement as new collagen and skin gradually replaces old skin.
