Philippine Minimal Invasive Surgical Rejuvenation
About Minimal Invasive Surgical Rejuvenation
Minimal invasive surgical rejuvenation procedures are a group of surgical processes that aims to make the face look younger, fresher, and more attractive. They make use of surgical operations and, thus, involve minimal incisions, numbness of the skin, scarring, bleeding, and hair loss on some procedures. However, they promise easy and quick recovery.
Minimal invasive surgical rejuvenation procedures tend to smooth out wrinkles and crow’s feet, lift sagging chin and cheeks, lighten up heavy eye lids, and tighten drooping brows to name some. They can be done alone or together with other cosmetic procedures.
Botox is a surgical rejuvenation technique that involves injection of Botox formulation or botulism toxin underneath skin. It aims to reduce and smooth out the wrinkles and lines on the face, giving it a radiant, young-looking façade.
For many years now, the use of Botox for enhancing and rejuvenating the facial skin has become popular among many patients. Besides being less invasive than the face lift surgery, its results are immediate. The swelling with Botoxtreatment lasts within a day or two only, as opposed to that of face lift which takes a couple of months before seeing the desired result.
Chemical peel is a facial surgical procedure that makes use of a chemical solution to eliminate damaged outer layers of the skin, providing a smoother texture and a more improved radiance to the face. Among the chemical solutions being used are alphahydrocy acids (AHAs) and phenol-trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Depending on the actual needs of the patient, the formula may be adjusted accordingly.
Chemical peel is ideal to patients with uneven skin pigmentation, blemishes, and wrinkles. However, it should be used as an alternative to facelift. It may, however, be performed together with such cosmetic surgery for a more attractive result.
Also called microbotox, mesobotox is a mesotherapy cosmetic procedure that makes use of the Botox formulation. It involves injection of multiple superficial micro doses of Botox into the skin of the neck and the face. This causes the sebaceous glands and sweat glands to shrink and atrophy. The mesobotox treatment aims to produce a smoother, more radiant, and more youthful looking skin and appearance, without affecting the movements of the facial muscle.
Ideal for removing acne, scars, chicken pox marks, facial pits, keratoses, and even tattoos, dermabrasion is a surgical procedure that refinishes the skin to eliminate and smooth out any irregularity in the face. It is also useful in reducing wrinkles and correcting pigmentation problems that occur in the face.
To perform these, dermabrasion involves taking the layers of dead skin away using abrasive sandpaper and rotating wire brushes. On some occasions, the patient is advised to apply an ointment, particularly Retin-A, weeks before the surgical procedure takes place. On the actual moment of operation, a Freon spray will be applied to the skin and freeze it.
Dermal fillers are generally used to cure naturally occurring wrinkles, folds, and lines in the face. They replace the lost volume brought by these aging symptoms. They are different from anti-wrinkle creams and injections as the latter is commonly used to remove wrinkles due to facial expression. Other dermal fillers are used to give added shape and volume to the chin, cheeks, and nose, and to enhance or define the lips.
Dermal fillers are ideal for those who want to take away the years and the stress being reflected on their face.
Scar revision is a cosmetic procedure being performed on a facial scar to alter its appearance. While scars may not be completely removed through this operation, the revision aims to improve the appearance of the skin where the scar is located or restore the function of the body part affected by the scar.
The visibility of the scar after the operation will depend upon the original size of the scar, the thickness and the color of the facial skin, the depth of the wound, and the direction of the scar.
Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic procedure that aims to treat specific types of lymphatic and vascular malformations. This is performed by injecting a liquid medication into the damaged area. Initially, an inflammation will occur, but eventually, the malformation will shrink and totally be eliminated. If the malformation enlarges again, another sclerotherapy session is required. Aside from the liquid medication, this surgical procedure would make use of an ultrasound machine and an x-ray dye.
The use of wire scalpel is a brave new technology used in the cosmetic surgery field. It is a revolutionary medical device that allows subcutaneous dissection even when there are no external incisions; thus, no scars or marks are left on the skin. The wire scalpel is made up of a firm and flexible stainless steel wire that is resistant to twists and bends, and is attached to a long needle.
