No matter how hard we try, time takes a toll on our skin. Between the natural aging process, damage from the sun, and scars and other textural changes, the skin on your face may not represent the age you feel inside.
The good news is that you don’t have to live with these signs of aging any longer. The expert providers at Peak Physical Medicine, in Visalia, California, have a solution that addresses multiple skin concerns, giving you healthier, younger-looking skin: facial rejuvenation.
Facial rejuvenation is a collection of therapies designed to improve your skin and rejuvenate your face. The exact combination of treatments depends on your unique skin condition and goals, but may include services like Botox®, dermal fillers, and laser skin resurfacing.
Your Peak Physical Medicine skin specialist examines your skin and health history before creating a customized facial rejuvenation plan to meet your needs and goals. Here’s a look at five common skin problems facial rejuvenation corrects.
1. Acne scars and other textural issues
Acne may be a problem of your past, but the scars it sometimes leaves behind can stay with you for life. Facial rejuvenation can help diminish the appearance of acne scars and other textural issues.
Different facial rejuvenation therapies work differently to remedy these skin problems, and if you have acne scars or other skin blemishes, your skin specialist at Peak Physical Medicine helps you choose the right ones to minimize their appearance and give you smoother skin.
2. Sun spots and other blemishes
The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays damage your skin over time. The result is a condition called photoaging, or premature aging of the skin. Facial rejuvenation with laser skin resurfacing counters the effects of harmful UV rays and eliminates sun spots and other pigmentation problems, giving you more even, balanced skin tone.
3. Frown lines, crow’s feet, and other lines and creases
The wrinkles and lines on the upper part of your face, like crow’s feet and frown lines, are wrinkles. This means that as you make facial expressions, your skin moves and changes to create lines that make the expression.
As you age and your skin loses elasticity (the ability to “bounce back”), these lines and wrinkles become set in place. Facial rejuvenation treatments, like Botox, help minimize the appearance of these lines, wrinkles, and creases, giving you a more youthful appearance.
4. Decreased volume
As we age, the extra subcutaneous layer of fat and cushioning in your face diminishes, giving you hollower cheeks and temples and causing your skin to droop. Your lips also begin to thin as your body naturally produces less collagen.
Facial rejuvenation that includes dermal fillers offers the perfect solution for lost volume, filling out sunken cheeks, adding contours where you need them, and plumping thin lips.
5. Marionette lines and nasolabial folds
The skin between your mouth and nose is thicker than the skin in other areas of your face. Over time, the smiles and other facial expressions you make can cause deep vertical lines and folds that run from the corners of your mouth to the edges of your nose, giving you a marionette-like appearance. Facial rejuvenation addresses this difficult-to-treat issue by drawing your skin up while also filling in hollow areas to smooth away lines and folds.
