Part of the aging process is the development of skin abnormalities like wrinkles, lines, and sagging.
Your skin protects you from the external environment, and it does an excellent job at doing so. But the environment, including sun, wind, dirt, and gravity, can take its toll on your face.
Facial cosmetic procedures can help to keep your skin and face healthy while improving your appearance. Most cosmetic goals are achievable with different cosmetic treatments. The doctors at Evergreen Eye Center have the skills to help you achieve these goals.
Brow lifts are a common cosmetic medical procedure. In some cases, they may be medically necessary. In others, they could be an aesthetic decision.
In either case, the reason for getting a brow lift is the same. You would like to reduce sagging, drooping, and furrow lines in your forehead and above your eyes.
As you age, the muscles in your forehead elongate and begin to sag. This sagging, in extreme cases, can impact your vision if your brow falls low enough in front of your eyes.
But even if your eyebrows or eyelids don’t hang low enough to block your vision, you may want to treat a drooping brow. Sagging or deep wrinkles in your forehead can make you look and feel older than you are.
It can also be uncomfortable and tiresome if the muscles in your forehead are constantly working to hold your eyebrows up. A brow lift can help with all these issues.
The procedure tightens the muscles holding your forehead and eyelids up. This tightening results in fewer wrinkles and furrow lines in your forehead and brow.
Fighting against gravity and other elements is impossible. They are inevitable. But with a brow lift, you can reduce the impact they have on your appearance and vision.
Face and Cheek Lifts
Like a brow lift, face and cheek lifts can also reduce the impacts of aging and the environment. These well-known cosmetic procedures tighten the muscles in your face.
They also smooth your skin to rejuvenate your appearance and make you look and feel younger. There are various facelift procedures for different areas of your face.
They range from specific detailed areas focusing on smaller areas to full facelifts. The different procedures include:
- Full facelift
- Mini facelift
- Lower facelift
- Submental facelift or neck lift
All these procedures work in the same general manner. Your surgeon removes and redistributes the tissue in your face through an incision in your skin.
The result is a smoother appearance with fuller and healthier-looking features. This redistribution of tissue reduces the appearance of wrinkles, making you look younger.
As you age, your skin takes on small amounts of damage that add up over time. Lifestyle factors, sleep, and environmental conditions like sun exposure negatively impact your face.
What all these influences do to your facial skin is cause it to age. Dead skin cells accumulate on your top layer of skin, and other blemishes may develop. Liver or age spots, blotchiness, and sagging loose skin become more common the older you get.
All these symptoms are clear signs of aging. But, it is possible to reduce or reverse these signs of aging.
Laser skin resurfacing is one of the lowest impact yet most effective ways to reduce the signs of aging on your face and eyelids. It can remove many of these common signs with one treatment.
Laser skin resurfacing works by creating a healing reaction in your skin. The laser does slight damage to the outer layer of cells on your face.
This damage then produces a healing response in the skin cells below the outer layer. The healing response increases the production of collagen, a protein found in healthy skin.
As your skin repairs itself, dead skin gets flushed out, and your skin tightens. Tighter skin on your face reduces wrinkles and other common blemishes.
The healing also erases age spots, sun spots, and other facial scars you may have. Overall, laser skin resurfacing tightens your skin and enhances its color and texture.
After the treatment, your face becomes healthier and younger-looking. On top of these cosmetic benefits, skin resurfacing is straightforward, has a short recovery, and is low-risk.
It gets done under anesthesia but is an outpatient procedure so that you can go home afterward. You can relax for the rest of the day and watch as your results begin to appear over the next couple of weeks.
Laser skin resurfacing is an excellent option to reduce the signs of aging on your face and eyelids.
