Skin, Muscles, and the In-Between: How to Treat Each Layer of Your Face

The incredible number of plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments available today allows our practice to offer a unique path for nearly everyone who wants to rejuvenate, restore, or enhance various aspects of their look. Depending on a patient’s comfort level, goals, and need, there are more involved treatments that can produce quite dramatic results. On the other end of the spectrum, there are also many minimally invasive treatments with little or no downtime that can do some pretty amazing things to highlight your natural beauty.

In this post, we’ll take a look at the face specifically and discuss some of the many ways we can treat each layer of it, from your muscles to your skin and everything in between.

Lifts: Rhytidectomy, Blepharoplasty, Brow Lift

A facelift (rhytidectomy), eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), and a brow lift are all plastic surgery procedures designed to remove excess skin, such as jowls, and manipulate muscles and other tissues to remove the appearance of deep wrinkles and lines around areas such as the mouth, nose, eyes, and forehead. Lifts can be combined in a number of ways to restore a person’s youthful appearance and give them long-lasting aesthetic results.

Professional Skin Care Treatments

To put it simply, your skin is often one of the first things that makes an impression when you meet someone new. If you want your face to look great, you can’t ignore quality skincare. The best skincare combines an at-home routine with in-office treatments such as:

  • Microdermabrasion: This minimally invasive skin treatment helps improve a patient’s early signs of aging, skin tone, and texture. During a microdermabrasion  treatment, Dr. Sajjadian sprays ultrafine particles across the skin using a handheld device to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin.
  • Chemical Peels: In-office chemical peels differ greatly from the kind you pick up at the drugstore. Most over-the-counter peels barely get past the skin’s surface. A professional chemical peel, however, can be specifically targeted to the proper depth necessary and mixed with the best formula to meet your goals.

Injectables for Just about Everything Else

If loss of skin volume and deep wrinkles are among your concerns, there’s an injectable product, such as Botox® or dermal fillers, to help. Dermal fillers such as the popular brands Juvéderm® and Restylane® use hyaluronic acid to hydrate skin and restore volume while also encouraging healthy collagen production. Injectables such as Botox® are powerful neuromodulators that stop the muscle activity responsible for deep lines and wrinkles.
