Not sure what treatment will help rejuvenate your face? This patient had the same question. Read on for answers!
Q: My face is pretty wrinkly and I am considering the FRAXEL laser versus a facelift. I am 44 years old and want to look more refreshed. Are facelifts meant for people that have had more trouble with the effects of gravity? I guess I just do not understand why someone would get an invasive procedure like a facelift if they can use lasers.
A: Laser skin treatments and surgery treat different aspects of aging. They are not so much “one or the other” as they are complementary. Many facelift patients undergo laser skin treatments at the same time as their surgery so they can avoid having to go through two separate recovery periods. As we age, three different types of facial changes occur.
Common problems in facial aesthetics arise when a provider tries to use a good treatment method to correct the wrong aspect of facial aging. An example of this is trying to add volume when the issue is skin quality, etc.As you can see, these treatments often work together to rejuvenate the face. The timing and order in which they should be performed vary from patient to patient. It’s important to discuss your concerns with someone who has the resources and skill to treat all aspects of the aging face.
