Even with the desire to look younger, some people don’t feel like they’re ready for facial plastic surgery, so in addition to facelift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), neck lift, etc., Dr. Fernando Burstein and his medical team also provide non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation. Depending on the patient’s concerns and signs of aging, he may suggest facial fillers, cosmetic injectables, skin resurfacing, or Ultherapy® non-surgical facial rejuvenation.
Facial fillers like Restylane®, Perlane®, and Juvéderm® are composed of a substance that naturally occurs in the body called hyaluronic acid, which depletes with age. These products are often used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles and restore lost volume in areas like the cheeks and lips. Cosmetic injectables such as Botox® and Dysport® are made with a purified form of botulinum toxin that relaxes muscles. When injected into the forehead and between the eyes, the muscles are relaxed and wrinkles are smoothed.
Skin resurfacing treatments can help eliminate wrinkles while also treating surface imperfections like dark spots, melasma, and acne scarring. Dr. Burstein offers several resurfacing technologies including radiofrequency and laser resurfacing. He also offers TCA chemical peels to target accumulated sun damage and other surface imperfections. Although these treatments are great for younger patients just starting to notice signs of aging, many facial plastic surgery patients seek resurfacing treatments to optimize results and conceal scars.
If you haven’t heard about Ultherapy® skin tightening from us, you may have heard about this ultrasound technology in the news. The Wall Street Journal describes this revolutionary treatment as “the hottest option available” due to its ability to map out areas of the face that need rejuvenating and target various layers of the skin. The ultrasound waves gently warm the skin, strengthening it from within to promote collagen production that lifts loose skin on the brow, eyelids, neck, and jowls.
Whether you’re just noticing signs of aging and seeking a less invasive treatment option, or if you are interested in facial plastic surgery procedures, Dr. Burstein offers a variety of cosmetic treatments to meet his patients’ needs.
