Skin Care, Wrinkle Reduction and Facelifts

Wouldn’t you have loved to be able to stop the clock when you were in your early 20s? Your skin was smooth and beautiful without a wrinkle in sight.

We all want to age and have experiences that come with living — we just don’t want to look older. I think all of us would just love to hold onto that fresh, dewy complexion and those firm facial contours of our youth for the rest of our lives. But skin ages, wrinkles, and sags, just like all of our other bodily organs.

Good Skin Care Can Only Do So Much

Following good skin care practices — and most people today basically know what those good practices are — can help, but still, time will take its toll. Our faces will begin to wrinkle no matter how well we adhere to good skin care regimens.

Make an Appointment With a Plastic Surgeon

Somewhere around the time we turn 40, we look in the mirror and may see wrinkles and sags. You could make the decision to schedule a facelift with a plastic surgeon. The plastic surgeon examines your face to determine which of many possible facelift procedures will provide the best outcome. All of us refer to facial plastic surgeries as “facelifts,” but in reality, there are several different kinds of facelift procedures, and each type produces different results.

Ideal Facelift Patient

The ideal facelift patient has some signs of aging, but their skin still has some elasticity. These patients will have the most desirable outcome from a facelift surgery. That’s not to say that those with little elasticity can’t benefit from facelift procedures.

A rhytidectomy is the technical term for a facelift. The surgeon will examine the skin as well as the underlying muscle and bone when they’re determining the type of facelift that will supply the best overall result.

Add-On Procedures in Conjunction With a Facelift

Very often, other skin resurfacing procedures are used in conjunction with a facelift procedure. Some add-on procedures, such as skin resurfacing, can make the final result much better.

As another example, the BTL Exilis Ultra Treatment uses a combination of radio frequency and ultrasound to tighten skin, grow new collagen, rearrange and tighten existing collagen bundles, and reduce subcutaneous fat. 

Some of the key areas where the BTL Exilis Ultra can be used include:

  • Forehead to tighten the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles without BOTOX®
  • Around the lower eyelids/cheeks for an instantaneous lower eyelid lift
  • In the midface area to lift the cheek fat pad and perform an incisionless mid-facelift
  • Along the jawline and the neck to give an instantaneous face/neck lift without downtime or incisions
  • In the décolleté area to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of fine, crepe-like skin
  • In the arms to tighten loose skin of the upper arms
  • Along the abdomen, love handles, and in the back region to reduce fat and aesthetically contour these areas.
