What can be done to Enhance or Maintain Facelift Results?

Atlanta Chemical PeelsA facelift can improve the signs of aging by eliminating excess skin and retightening the muscles ofthe face and neck. Dr. Fernando Burstein often has patients who seek to address the visible signs that make them appear older than they are, including sagging skin, deep creases, and areas of lost volume.  With almost 25 years of experience performing facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Burstein understands the delicacy and special techniques needed during facelift surgery to provide patients with natural-looking results.

Chemical peels are a non-invasive treatment for patients looking to rejuvenate their skin as well as for patients who have previously had a cosmetic facial procedure. Dr. Burstein occasionally recommends chemical peels on patients while he performs procedures like facelift and blepharoplasty to help improve and balance skin texture and tone. Dr. Burstein considers a variety of factors including the patient’s age, skin type, and presence of any additional skin condition when deciding if combination treatment is best. Depending on a patient’s goals, chemical peel strength can vary from removing only the top layer of skin to deeper peels for concerns such as wrinkles and scarring. Chemical peels are also ideal for patients looking to improve acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, rough or scaly patches of skin, and superficial scars. This procedure can also be performed in-office if a facelift is not being performed.

Although facelift surgery can improve the signs of aging, it does not stop the aging process.  Other skin care and maintenance procedures that can enhance facelift surgery results include dermal injectables, Ultherapy® skin tightening, and MatrixRF™ laser skin resurfacing.  Dermal injectables such as Botox®, Juvederm®, and Restylane® can reduce fine lines and wrinkles as they develop. Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin tightening technology that can be used after facelift surgery to maintain facial rejuvenation results. Laser skin resurfacing is great for smoothing out skin texture and balancing skin tone after surgical procedures.
