If you do not recognize the person you see when you look in the mirror, you may be ready for cosmetic treatment to reduce the signs of aging or improve certain aspects of your appearance. To renew and refresh your look, you have a number of choices. You can elect some type of facial plastic surgery procedure or choose to try non-surgical procedures such as injectable fillers or laser treatment to help erase lines and wrinkles. Charlotte’s best facial plastic surgeon, M. Sean Freeman specializes in facial plastic surgery and non-surgical procedures to help improve your appearance.
Which one is right for you?
Depending upon your goals, Dr. Freeman will help you choose the right procedure for you. You will schedule a consultation with Dr. Freeman where he will evaluate your skin, face, and bone structure and discuss exactly what you hope for from a cosmetic procedure. Each procedure, whether facial plastic surgery or non-surgical treatment will provide different results.
If you have sagging skin around the neck, chin, face or jowls, Dr. Freeman may recommend a minilift or a full facelift. If you have hooded or dropping eyelids, he may recommend a blepharoplasty or a blepharoplasty with SOOF lift. These are all facial plastic surgery procedures and are done at Dr. Freeman’s Charlotte NC clinic, The Center for Facial and Plastic Laser Surgery. You will be sedated during the procedure and recovery will vary depending upon the procedure.
If your signs of aging are not quite as advanced, Dr. Freeman may recommend a non-surgical treatment to rejuvenate your appearance. This may include Botox injections, injectable fillers such as Restylane®, RADIESSE® or JUVEDERM®. Dr. Freeman could also treatment with a laser, including the Smoothbeam® Laser Treatment.
Laser treatment is a non-ablative method for rejuvenation skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Freeman is highly skilled and experienced at using lasers to help improve and enhance the appearance of the face. Non-ablative refers to the fact that this laser treats the deeper part of the skin and does not injure the skin’s exterior or the epidermis. Treatment with a laser provides a patient good results without the downtime associated with surgery or laserbrasion.
Another type of laser treatment sometimes recommended by Dr. Freeman is laser skin rejuvenation. This is a relatively new procedure where a laser targets small blood vessels which may be abnormally dilated. The laser can also be used to treat brown spots or age spots which can occur in individuals who have been overexposed to the sun over the years. Laser skin rejuvenation is a very safe procedure and can be used on any area of the body.
