Facial aging is inevitable and many factors including lifestyle habits, sun exposure, genetics, and gravity can all affect our appearance as we age. Since each patient matures differently, Dr. Fernando Burstein recommends specific cosmetic facial procedures depending on each individual’s skin condition and age. Double board certified in plastic surgery and otolaryngology (head and neck surgery), he is highly skilled and familiarized with various facial structures and the effects of aging on skin and facial features. With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Burstein typically recommends preventative non-surgical treatments to prolong a youthful appearance or rejuvenating facial cosmetic procedures to address areas that are most affected by facial aging.
For patients in their 30s or before extensively visible signs of aging, non-surgical treatments such as cosmetic injectables, laser skin resurfacing, and chemical peels can be performed to maintain youthful, healthy skin. Botox® and Dysport® reduce and prevent further wrinkling as these injectables temporarily cease facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. Facial fillers can also restore lost volume and smooth wrinkles on the cheeks and mouth area. Laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels address surface conditions such as sun spots, acne, hyperpigmentation or scarring and induce collagen production to prolong cosmetic results.
While minimally invasive options are available, Dr. Burstein may also recommend a facial procedure depending on other concerns that occur later in age such as sagging skin, deeper wrinkles, and volume loss. Depending on the way a patient ages, facial cosmetic surgery provides long-lasting rejuvenation. Facelift and neck lift surgery are two common anti-aging procedures that remove excess fat and skin and re-tighten facial muscles for a more youthful, alert appearance. Dr. Burstein also performs eyelid surgery and partial facelifts to address specific facial features or areas.
