Some of the first signs of aging appear on the face and neck, which may cause you to feel self-conscious about the way you look. Although aging is an inevitable process, it’s not impossible to slow down its effects on your skin. Wrinkles and volume loss can both become a problem, resulting in skin laxity and sunken features, but you have several options to consider when it comes to facial rejuvenation.
When you visit Medicare, we can discuss whether facelift surgery is right for you. Dr Hobson has extensive experience using the most advanced techniques to provide enhancements that look completely natural to your facial aesthetic and take years off of your appearance as a result.
What does the Plasma Pen correct?
Your facelift will focus on the areas that have become prone to aging. This may include volume loss in the cheeks, creases around the eyelids, nose and mouth, skin laxity around the lower portions of the face and neck, fat loss and more. Additionally, several surgical procedures can be performed in conjunction with your facelift, depending on the cosmetic concerns you are experiencing. A brow lift, for example, can reduce sagging skin while eyelid surgery can recreate youthful qualities around the eyes. Fat grafting is also used to restore a youthful shape to the face and as a more natural alternative to injectable fillers.
Through years of clinical practice, Dr Hobson has come to understand the various ways an individual can age. Everyone succumbs to aging differently, which means that no two facelift procedures can be performed using the same technique. Dr Hobson takes pride in his ability to recognize how particular features in your face change over time and designs comprehensive treatment plans that address your concerns.
How does Plasma Skin Tightening or Plasma pen Treatment Work?
This new revolutionary eye-lift is a huge step forward in anti-wrinkle treatment technology. In as little as one treatment, the skin around your eyes is instantly tightened and you’re left with a permanent bright-eyed and youthful look. It works by shrinking and shortening the skin fibers, lifting the skin. No knives, no surgery.
Plasma treatment involves use of high voltage, low current electrical energy that essentially creates a ‘spark’ over the treatment area. The spark is the result of electrical energy interacting with specific gases in the air (or delivered to the tip of the device). When this interaction occurs, plasma energy is created. Plasma is considered the fourth state of matter and can be effectively harnessed as a cosmetic treatment tool. The underlying skin responds to this plasma spark by tightening up, or contracting. This causes a fairly immediate effect in terms of skin tightening. Following this, a second phase of healing unfolds where new collagen is formed by the body to further help in the process of rejuvenation. Since this involves activation of fibroblast cells under the skin, many offices will refer to plasma skin tightening as fibroblast skin tightening.
The end result is a smoothing of the skin in some areas, lifting of the tissue in other areas and/or a combination of these two effects. The beauty of this technology is that the entire treatment can be performed without any cutting of the skin, removal of skin or injection into the skin.
