For a younger and healthier look many patients turn to laser skin resurfacing. If aging, acne, sun damage, scars, wrinkles, crowsfeet, or other imperfections have caused damage to your skin, then laser skin resurfacing may be the answer. This in office procedure removes the layers of skin with precision. This causes newer and fresher cells to form making your skin look healthier, and also helps to heal past damage, thereby reducing wrinkles and marks.
Botox is an injectable prescription medication used to temporarily improve moderate-to-severe wrinkle lines. The injectable work to reducing the muscle activity that causes wrinkles in a given area. Most men and women who receive Botox look to improve the wrinkles referred to as “crows feet” around the eye socket as well as many wrinkles between the eye brows and forehead. Botox is a non-surgical day treatment and can only be provided by a healthcare professional.
Eyelid surgery improves the look of the upper eyelids and lower eyelids. This surgery helps to fix imperfections around the eye and make you look rested and years younger. In addition, eyelid surgery may be required for medical purposes when the lid droops down in front of the eye, causing visual obstruction.
A mid-face lift, also called a cheek lift, addresses one of the earliest signs of aging – sagging of the cheeks and the surrounding area. For many, the traditional facelift may not fully treat the upper cheek and lower eyelid areas of the face, which often flatten and lengthen with age. A mid-face lift elevates the fat pad in the cheek (called the malar fat pad), providing fullness to the eyes and cheeks – leading to a refreshed, rejuvenated look. Results are more permanent than those offered by injectables, and recovery from a mid-face lift is quicker than a traditional facelift.
Dr. Rosenthal offers a variety of mid-face lift approaches, including a minimally invasive option called a percutaneous mid-face lift (PML) or cheek lift.
