Facial Rejuvenation Treatments That Are Right for You

Our face is what we present to the world. And while time influences our faces’ skin and musculature, we can choose how we handle the natural course of aging.

From fine lines to wrinkles, saggy skin, and sunken features, the face slowly loses its youthful vigor and contours over time.

Fortunately, many facial rejuvenation treatments are perfect for slowing the various aspects of an aging face— injectablesskin resurfacing, and many other methods have proven to be highly effective.

But which one is right for you?

Here, the expert team at Etre Cosmetic Dermatology & Laser Center in New Orleans explain what causes facial aging and cover a few popular facial rejuvenation options.

What Causes the Face to Age?

In our youth, generally up until our late 20’s to early ’30s, our bodies naturally produce large amounts of collagen.

Collagen is a vital structural protein for our skin. It gives young skin its elastic snap and keeps our skin tight and smooth over our facial features. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen, which means the skin gradually loses its elastic qualities.

Combine this with the eternal downward pull of gravity and repeated facial expressions, and we get wrinkles, fine lines, and loose facial skin.

As such, many of the most effective facial rejuvenation treatments address this reduced collagen production, while others provide volume to sunken facial features.

Here are just a few of many options that can reduce the signs of aging:

SkinPen Microneedling

SkinPen Microneedling is a process which induces thousands of minute micro-injuries to the skin’s surface and mid-layer.

As the body heals from these micro-wounds, the skin produces the collagen and elastin.

If you are troubled by acne scars and the beginning signs of encroaching fine lines, SkinPen Microneedling is a simple, affordable facial rejuvenation technique perfect for your needs.

Chemical Peels

Our facial skin can also be largely affected by the sun.

When we overexpose our skin to the sun and don’t take proper safety precautions, we can experience skin burning, uneven complexion, sunspots, and freckles.

When this occurs, chemical peels offer an ideal way to remove the damaged outer layer of dead skin cells altogether and reveal the underlying healthy cells.

Chemical peels come in three different strengths; superficial, medium, and deep. If you enjoyed a bit too much sun during the summer, a chemical peel would be the perfect solution for eliminating skin blemishes and restoring smooth, even skin.

Which type of peel best suits you depends on your circumstances and downtime availability. Hence, it’s best to consult with the highly experienced team at Etre Cosmetic Dermatology before committing to a particular type of chemical peel.

Instalift

While traditional solutions to sagging facial skin have been surgeries such as a facelift, many patients either aren’t ready for a surgery, or their schedules won’t allow for the downtime.

In such cases, the Silhouette Instalift, a minimally invasive surgery, leverages new absorbable suture technology to help anchor facial skin to different parts of the bone structure, thus holding loose skin in place and providing a rejuvenating effect.
