Are you considering, or have you recently undergone, cosmetic facial surgery?
Facial cosmetic surgery, when performed by a board certified plastic surgeon, can greatly improve facial appearance by tightening and lifting the skin. It offers consistent, dramatic results, and there is certainly no other product or treatment that can substitute, or compare with, a face lift or blepharoplasty. However, it is important to understand that a youthful appearance is achieved, not only by tightening skin, but also by improving the skin’s overall health and appearance.
In addition to increased laxity (sagging), several other factors can contribute to an aged appearance of the skin. These include discoloration of the skin with increased brown and red pigment, thinning skin, rough texture of the skin, and dry, dull looking skin.
Professional, post-procedural products will soothe sensitized skin, and encourage skin repair and new cell growth, accelerating healing. Mineral make up is also safe to use on delicate skin, and will help to camouflage bruising and redness while simultaneously reducing inflammation. In these ways, the professional products will lessen your post-surgical downtime.
Recommended post-procedural skincare includes:
- SkinMedica’s® TNS Recovery Complex
- TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream
- Environmental Protection Sunscreen
- C & E Complex
Although if you feel that you are not quite ready for a facial surgery, but are starting to see the signs of aging, and would like to improve your facial appearance, you may want to consider some non-invasive treatment options such as laser resurfacing, photofacials, and cosmetic filler treatments. While the results will not be as dramatic as those of surgery, they can offer significant improvement for those who are not yet ready for, or simply choose not to undergo, a surgical procedure.
Incorporating a personalized, professional skin care regimen into your treatment program will not only help to prepare your skin for treatment, but it will improve your overall result.
This way, you can optimize your cosmetic results with a complete facial rejuvenation. The following pre-procedure products and services are recommended at Colorado Plastic Surgery Center:
- SkinMedica® TNS Regeneration system
- C02 and IPL laser treatments
In addition to enhancing the results of your cosmetic facial surgery, the proper skincare products can also ease and speed your recovery time immediately following your procedure. Dr. Slenkovich recommends post-procedure skin care as well.
