faceThere is a range of wrinkle reducing treatments on the market today.

Medical Treatments for Facial Flaws

Facial plastic surgery procedures such as facelift, browlift, and blepharoplasty are designed to reduce the signs of aging in patients. These procedures tighten loose skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. However, they are not intended to treat other facial flaws such as a poor complexion, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. Here, we review common facial flaws and appropriate treatment options for these conditions.


Fine lines and wrinkles are one of the first signs of aging that patients notice. Many people still think that facial plastic surgery is the best way to get rid of wrinkles. However, non-surgical procedures are growing in popularity and are effective on patients that have mild to moderate facial wrinkling. There are several wrinkle treatment options for patients to choose from; patients that are interested in undergoing in these treatments should seek the advice of a qualified plastic surgeon.

Treatment options: Facelift, browlift, blepharoplasty, microdermabrasion, Botox or dermal filler injections, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing

Loose Skin

Patients that have areas with loose, excess facial skin are typically better candidates for facelift, browlift, or eyelid lifting surgery. There are non-invasive skin tightening treatment systems in use today, but these procedures are only effective on patients that have mildly loose skin, and several treatments sessions are needed to achieve ideal results.

Treatment options: Facelift, browlift, blepharoplasty, dermal filler injections, laser skin tightening, ReFirme, Thermage

Age Spots

Age spots are also known as sun spots, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. This skin condition cannot be treated with any type of surgery. Areas of hyperpigmentation may respond to chemical and light-based treatments. All of these treatments stimulate the re-growth of a new layer of skin, diminishing the appearance of dark spots.

Treatment options: microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, IPL photofacial, laser toning

Acne Scars

Acne scars can also be treated with non-surgical methods of skin care. The appearance of light acne scars can be reduced with procedures that promote the regeneration of collagen, while deeper depressions can be filled in with soft tissue filler injections.
