In follow-up to yesterday’s discussion of skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing, today’s post will focus in more depth upon the types of conditions skin rejuvenation can treat. Your plastic surgeon, using skin rejuvenation techniques, can treat skin tone laxity, pigmentation issues, scars, dynamic wrinkles and static wrinkles. As we age, it is natural for our skin to lose its tone and firmness. This occurs due to weakening of the skin’s structure from the loss of collagen and elastin fibers. Skin rejuvenation helps increase the skin’s collagen production, which provides for better skin tone and firmness. Nearly all of us have some degree of pigmentation issues from sun damage, sun spots, melasma or just natural freckles. Skin rejuvenation can reduce the appearance of past sun damage. Scars from acne (both teen and adult) as well as from trauma to the skin can be mitigated with skin resurfacing techniques. Finally, wrinkles are treatable. Static wrinkles are those that are visible at all times and do not change with facial movements. Examples are wrinkles around the mouth above the upper lip. Dynamic wrinkles are things such as laugh lines or other expression lines that appear deeper with certain facial movements or expressions. When some patients squint their eyes, the crows feet around the eyes can appear more prominent. Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann is highly experienced in skin rejuvenation techniques as well as other facial restoration procedures.
