Facial Rejuvenation can include minimally invasive procedures such as Dermal Fillers, Chemical Peels, Skin Resurfacing, and BOTOX®, plus a variety of lifts such as forehead, eyebrow, face and neck.
Forehead & Eyebrow Lift
A forehead & eyebrow lift is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of aging in people 40-60 years old. It can also help people of any age who have developed furrows or frown lines due to stress or muscle activity.
Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) is used to remove the fat deposits and loose skin that may form on the eyelids with age.
As we age, our facial skin loosens, and the underlying soft tissue foundation may shift or drop. The muscles of the face & neck may weaken as well. Facial rejuvenation by a facelift & neck lift can address these problems by re-draping and firming these contours. The procedures will also tighten the skin of the face and neck at the same time.
Some patients may be appropriate candidates for newer, minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures. These are more subtle, yet natural-looking improvements for patients who may be younger, have earlier needs, or do not want or need the full Face Lift or Forehead & Eyebrow Lift procedures. Mid-face Lift and Short Scar Face Lift, along with Dermal Fillers, Chemical Peels, Skin Resurfacing, and BOTOX® wrinkle reduction are good options for many patients. These can be cost-effective with shorter recovery and
