What can I do to Erase or Minimize Signs of Aging in my Face?


Signs of aging in your face can be a big problem as you get older. A Sydney cosmetic surgeon can help you evaluate the cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery techniques which can erase or minimize these signs so that you regain a more youthful and attractive appearance. Some possible treatments can include:

Face Lift, Brow Lift, and Eye Lift

These are plastic surgery techniques which help to lift any sagging skin and other tissues, giving your face a more youthful appearance and skin that is tighter in your face. The right Sydney plastic surgeon can discuss the various surgical lift options that may reverse your specific signs of aging. These cosmetic procedures can provide more drastic results but they also usually require some down time because of the plastic surgery involved as well.

Skin Resurfacing Treatments

Skin resurfacing involves making controlled injuries in your skin to promote healing and cause healthy skin to develop. When yoru skin is injured it promotes a response, and healthy tissue is created to repair and replace the damaged skin. The new skin is younger and has more collagen and other components necessary to fight signs of aging. There are three common methods used for skin resurfacing treatment, and these are:

  • Chemical peels– This method uses chemicals such as alpha hydroxy acids in order to damage your skin in the targeted area. Old skin layers and damaged cells are stripped off, leaving younger and healthy skin on the surface.
  • Laser treatments– A laser is used to cause injury to your skin, and this can be performed in one of two ways. One method causes a uniform injury to the entire surface of your skin. Fractional resurfacing uses a laser to create small holes in the skin but does not damage the entire skin surface.
  • Dermabrasion– A spinning wheel that has a rough surface is used to injure your skin in the targeted area and remove dead and damaged skin cells and layers.

Botulinum Toxin Injections

Botulinum toxin injections are another one of the cosmetic procedures which can fight signs of aging. This toxins causes muscle paralysis in the area where it is injected, and this can keep the muscles from contracting in ways that can cause wrinkles to develop. A qualified Sydney cosmetic surgeon can inject the toxin in the targeted area in small amounts, minimizing the risks involved and ensuring the best possible results.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are substances which are injected under the skin, plumping up your tissues and filling in wrinkles. These products can also help minimize any skin sagging caused by aging. There are a number of dermal filler products available to choose from, and each one has certain benefits but also specific risks and drawbacks involved. These cosmetic procedures are performed in the office and normally have little or no down time.
