There are many different procedures that are used during facial rejuvenation. Eyelid surgeries, neck lifts, rhinoplasties (nose surgeries), and dermal fillers are all used to rejuvenate the tissues and restore original form and function. Facial rejuvenation procedures help to correct abnormalities in the structure of the face as well as enhance the tone and texture of the skin and soft tissues that are often adversely affected by aging. As the skin begins to age, it loses its ability stretch or move freely and return to its normal position. With decreased collagen production, the skin no longer has the support it needs to be youthful and vibrant.
A facial rejuvenation procedure may not be able to permanently reduce the signs of aging, but it can slow down the process and provide temporary support. Facial rejuvenation procedures that involve the use of dermal fillers can provide temporary relief by increasing the amount of collagen and elastin the body produces. The additional collagen helps to firm and tone the skin, reducing sagging and the appearance of wrinkles and lines. This tightens the skin, creating a smoother surface with fewer imperfections. Facial rejuvenation techniques, like the ICON® laser, can help to lighten blemishes and discolorations, while at the same time encouraging the body to produce more collagen.
The ICON® laser system is beneficial for individuals who don't want to pursue more invasive methods. Lasers can offer a wide variety of benefits for individuals who want to rejuvenate their skin and restore a more youthful looking appearance. They can tighten the surface of the skin, as well as tone the underlying tissues. Techniques that encourage the production of collagen and elastin help to firm and strengthen the tissues. Lasers can also lighten skin discolorations and eliminate small scars and wrinkles. More invasive procedures include eyelid surgeries, neck lifts, and rhinoplasty procedures that are used to restructure and reshape the nose.
