Facial Beauty Doesn’t always Require a Med Spa. For Dramatic Results a Plastic Surgeon May be Better Suited to Meet Your Needs
This year we are seeing more and more people seeking plastic surgery to enhance their appearance and status at work. In the Sacramento Valley of California we are seeing an increased interest in skin enhancement. Perhaps it is the increasing intensity of the sun or the fact that the skin is the largest organ of the body. Many different options are available to enhance the skin. Certainly starting with a good sun screen and adding antioxidants and retinols as well as moisturizes helps the appearance. However, more dramatic results can be achieved through laser skin rejuvenation, a non-ablative laser technique used by Dr Perry at Chrysalis Cosmetics improves the skin texture and tone as well as color with minimal down time. It is amazing what we can do now with enhancing the face through skin changes, volume changes as well as skin tightening procedures.
What makes a trip to your plastic surgeon for assessment of your face so valuable is the comprehensive training they complete such as Dr Perry and the fact that they can offer the full line of treatment and tailor the treatment to your needs not just a limited skill set of a nurse or family medical doctor. Plastic Surgeons can operate as well as provide fillers and use lasers for skin care on a routine basis. Plastic Surgeons such as Dr Perry specializing in Cosmetic results based upon a training in general surgery and a specialization focus on the aesthetic to create natural harmonious results.
We are seeing more people interested in laser skin therapy combined with fillers such as Juvederm, Sculptra and Restylane to enhance the facial volume and tighten the skin at the same time. It is amazing what can be done without surgery. Laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels are also popular as many of our patients are taking advantage of their down time to enhance the skin’s texture and rejuvenate the appearance. We have added a skin care specialist Carmen Sumner who can also perform facials and color matching as well as chemical peels and waxing for the unwanted hair.
While some people like the minimal downtime the non-surgical procedures offer we are also seeing a dramatic rise in those seeking permanent changes through surgery and more permanent facial fillers such as cheek implants, chin implants and structural fat grafting. They want something that provides a more permanent change a more dramatic effect for their changing life and circumstances. However once a patient has experienced the facial enhancement that a little volume or laser skin tighten offers they start desiring longer duration. We have also seen an increase in patients seeking a second facelift, rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty.
The face seems to be the focus of many or our patients these days as looking and feeling younger seems to help the confidence which can help during stressful economic times. We look forward to helping you enhance your appearance. With so many new options available let us help you achieve the look you desire.
