There are plenty of options out there for enhancing the appearance of your face and fighting the signs of advanced age. Some of these are surgical treatments while others are non-surgical. Ottawa, Ontario plastic surgeon Dr. Peter Brownrigg offers his patients both such options because he understands how important it is to consider the various goals and needs of his patients.
Facial rejuvenation techniques may involve the use of cosmetic injections, surgical procedures, laser and light treatments, and special peel therapies as well. Sometimes it’s possible to combine multiple treatments to achieve the most desirable effects. In fact, this not unheard of, with many patients in the past getting surgical and non-surgical treatments for their needs.
Two particularly popular options at our Ottawa cosmetic plastic surgery center are facelift surgery and PhotoFacial&™ rejuvenation. This is a great way to reduce wrinkles and to improve the overall texture and quality of your skin. Let’s look at each treatment individually and then see how a combination treatment will benefit you.
The facelift is one of the most popular surgical options available today. During a facelift, incisions are made behind the ear area and along certain portions of the lower hairline. Through these incisions, excess tissue is removed and underlying structures can be adjusted.
In addition to the traditional Ottawa, Ontario facelift, there are other targeted facial lifts that can help patients meet their goals. Facial lifts can be performed on the brow area as well as the jowl area and neckline. Each lift will be customized to meet the needs of each patient.
For excellent improvement of the skin’s appearance and texture, you can’t go wrong with the PhotoFacial&™ treatment. PhotoFacial&™ treatment is able to address a wide range of skin problems, including acne scars, age spots, rosacea, oversized pores, dry patches of skin, sun damage, and fine lines.
During PhotoFacial&™ treatment, there is no surgery involved. Instead of scalpels and sutures, a patient’s skin will be exposed to pulses of focused light. This light will penetrate the layers of skin safely to effectively enhance the appearance of a patient.
There are many benefits to combination facelift surgery and PhotoFacial&™ rejuvenation treatment. Generally the facelift will be performed first and once healing is complete, the PhotoFacial&™ rejuvenation will be performed. The facelift can take care of the big issues while the PhotoFacial&™ rejuvenation can address blemishes and skin texture problems that the facelift will not be able to address. This results in comprehensive enhancement of your face that looks great.
This is the sort of question we can’t possibly answer over the internet. It’s really a case by case basis as to which treatments would be best for each patient. While a facelift and PhotoFacial&™ might be great for some patients, others may be more interested in other surgeries or other non-surgical treatments. We can discuss all of your options in more detail during a consultation.
