Many San Francisco residents may be unhappy with the look of their face, neck, and nose, but today we live in the 21st century and there is no need for you to suffer in silence. Plastic surgery can do a lot for you and give you the look that you want, and as one of the foremost San Francisco plastic surgery clinics, at Visage Medspa & Facial Plastic Surgery Center, our doctors can help you to have a better appearance.
As we age, nearly all of us will suffer from drooping neck muscles and sagging skin. We may also have wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. A lot of these things can be helped by laser resurfacing of the skin. Our Dr. Rabinovich may use a Sciton Contour laser which lets him calculate the precise depth of the laser beam and adjust the amount of heat required to tighten the sagging skin. The heat will stimulate the body’s own collagen and give your face a more useful appearance. This can usually be achieved with a single treatment.
Furthermore, when you have this laser technology, the healing time is reduced and there are rarely any side effects. Most people are able to return to work within a few days.
Botox, Juvederm, And Radiesse
Dr. Rabinovich can also use fillers such as Botox, Juvederm, and Radiesse which can fill in wrinkles and improve the skin texture. Juvederm, for instance, is a hyaluronic acid gel that can be used to fill in lines and grooves around the mouth and nose and can shape cheekbones, the chin, and those troughs under the eyes. This is a simple procedure that can be administered in half an hour, and you get immediate results. Furthermore, the results can last for up to a year. In practice, as Juvederm breaks down, it binds to water molecules in the skin, and the benefits last longer with each treatment. Many of our patients find that they only need a few maintenance treatments, and the results can last for years.
Eyelid surgery is another procedure that can help by improving the bags under your lower eyelids and reducing the wrinkled skin. The excess skin and fatty tissue are removed, leaving you with a much younger look. A similar procedure can be used with the upper eyelid too.
Dr. Rabinovich has also developed the Visage Rapid Recovery Lift which can be used to lift drooping skin and muscles under the neck. This slides the muscle back up into its’ youthful position while any excess skin is trimmed away.
So, whatever your issues, today we have a procedure to treat it and make you look the younger you that you wish to be.
