Undergoing a facelift is a significant decision that yields beautiful and dramatic results. However, some patients find that they want to boost or prolong their results. At Enhance® Plastic Surgery® in Beverly Hills, Charles S. Lee, MD offers a variety of effective, customizable cosmetic treatments that are designed to rejuvenate the skin and improve the complexion. Explore your options below.
Botox® Cosmetic Injections
Some patients begin receiving Botox® injuections before their facelifts and may be wondering when it is safe to resume treatments. Others may want to begin Botox® after a facelift as part of a maintenance routine. Whatever the reason, Botox® is a great option for many. Botox® works by relaxing the muscles in the face to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. Results from Botox® typically last around three to six months. During that time, patients can benefit from a reduction in fine wrinkles around the eyes, creases in the forehead, and lines between the brows.
Laser resurfacing can achieve significant improvements in the skin by reducing the appearance of lines, dark spots, acne scars, discoloration, and many other blemishes in the skin. During laser treatment, local anesthesia is applied to minimize pain. A laser is then moved over the treatment site. This action allows light energy to be delivered directly to the skin in a precise manner. A layer of damaged, aging skin is then removed, revealing a younger, more glowing complexion.
A facelift is an excellent choice for tightening the skin, reducing wrinkles, and improving the contours of the face, but if you are interested in adding volume, injectable fillers may be beneficial. Fillers such as Restylane® and the Juvéderm® family of fillers can plump up various areas of the face, such as the cheeks, areas around the nose and mouth, and even the lips. Dr. Lee also offers platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, which utilize the patient’s own cells to promote healing and lasting rejuvenation.
How Soon Can I Get Cosmetic Treatments After Facelift?
Subsequent treatments may take place after you have recovered from facelift surgery which can take a few months. This allows Dr. Lee to assess your areas of concern and determine the best nonsurgical treatment for those areas.
