Over time and with exposure to certain environmental factors such as UVA/UVB radiation, cigarette smoking, or other toxins, one’s skin becomes less firm, wrinkled, and the tone can become blotchy. Though the best things on can do for his/her skin is to avoid the sun, not smoke, and treat the skin with good skincare products, one cannot always avoid time or certain exposures. However, skin rejuvenation is a viable option for patients who wish to refine the surface of the skin in an effort to increase collagen production and look younger. There are several methods for skin rejuvenation available to resurface the skin, thereby making the texture, clarity and overall appearance look more youthful. Methods for skin rejuvenation include but are not limited to lasers, light, energy based treatments, and other non-ablative methods. Skin rejuvenation treatments can help to repair loss of skin tone, pigmentation issues, scars, static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. It is important that patients understand that skin rejuvenation is not a surgical facelift, and therefore, will not produce the same results. Skin rejuvenation is primarily for patients looking to refine their skin and not achieve the results from a brow lift, facelift, or eyelid surgery. With medical spas and cosmetic dermatologists all over the Houston area, patients should take pause to research and be selective in who performs skin rejuvenation treatments – after all, these treatments are almost exclusively performed on the patient’s face. Patients should consider seeking treatment from an experienced physician who is board certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) as such physicians devote their careers and practice to facial rejuvenation, which includes rejuvenation of the skin. Other physicians who are not board certified by ASPS may merely have skin and facial rejuvenation as a “side business.” Michael Eisemann, M.D., is a highly skilled triple board certified plastic surgeon with a career of over 30 years. Though he is a plastic surgeon, this does not mean that he pushes surgical options. Dr. Eisemann takes his time examining the patient, listening to his/her goals and expectations, and then makes recommendations based on both his experience and the patient’s desires.
