Delaware Facial Rejuvenation with a Traditional Facelift

Delaware facial rejuvenation consists of many different procedures to bring back a youthful and vibrant appearance to the face. These may be relatively non-invasive procedures, such as Botox, fillers, and certain types of laser therapies to make the skin look smoother, eliminating the signs of age like wrinkles, folds, and creases.

In these non-invasive treatments like microdermabrasion, laser resurfacing, fillers and Botox, or chemical peeling, your skin remains intact. You can repeat these at regular intervals when the effects wear off. While the effects are temporary in nature, in some cases, it can be seen on the face for years together. Other cosmetic procedures that leave you with open skin or broken skin are typically chemical peels, some resurfacing laser treatments, traditional face lifts (not mini ones), or other lifting procedures that involve surgery.

Non-invasive treatments cannot be followed by a traditional facelift or vice versa for the simple reason that in both cases, your natural skin has been altered in some way. Any procedure that is conducted on an area of skin that has been subjected to one method, may have adverse effects if treated again, by an alternate method. Speaking about this to your surgeon would shed more light on the matter. Physically, he/she would be able to explain the pros and cons of different types of facial rejuvenation treatments, and what best suits your skin, your needs, and your restoration goals.
