Facelift — Facial Surgery Rhytidectomy Norfolk

If you’re thinking about having a facelift, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with some of the basics when it comes to the procedure itself. To start, a facelift is a cosmetic procedure designed typically for people in their 40s and 50s who are showing signs of sagging in the face and neck area. A well-executed facelift can set the clock back eight to ten years.

The facelift procedure offered by our experienced plastic surgeons begins by carefully placing incisions within the natural creases around the ears. Once the skin is lifted, the surgeon goes the extra step, tightening the underlying muscles to create a longer-lasting and more dramatic result.

Drs. Lawrence Colen and Theodore Uroskie, Jr., are experienced in modern techniques of facial surgery and will map out each procedure based on the individual goals and preferences of the patient.

For more information about the facelift, contact our office located in Norfolk, VA.

Radiesse — Norfolk Minimally Invasive Treatment

Different facial regions can be injected with Radiesse in order to rejuvenate them, reducing folds and wrinkles along the mouth, chin, brow and nose. Among the minimally invasive procedures, Radiesse is widely considered the best option for erasing lines and folds and replacing lost structure with immediate volume.

Radiesse has unique microscopic spheres that support the skin for up to one year and beyond. During this time, the spheres slowly dissipate, but as they do, they continue to promote the growth of new collagen and elastin proteins for long-lasting benefits. Eventually, the water-based gel is completely and safely absorbed into the body’s system. Additional treatments can help to extend the duration of the effects.

Botox — Norfolk Non-Surgical Facial Injectable

With celebrities showing off their age-defying looks in the media, many people have the impression it’s their superior genetics that are responsible for the flawless skin and gorgeous glow. However, you’d be surprised how much of their long-lasting beauty can be traced back to a cosmetic procedure like Botox.

The protein derivative known as Botox is the most popular non-surgical treatment performed across the United States. This injectable solution comes from a naturally occurring substance known as botulinum and is designed for both cosmetic and medicinal purposes.

Wrinkles around the face tend to develop over time. These unpleasant marks become more pronounced when facial expressions are repeated again and again, like smiling, frowning or squinting.

Botox treatments consist of a few gentle injections and generally take only 10 to 15 minutes per office visit. This quick and convenient facial restoration and preservation works by numbing targeted muscles, thus preventing them from wrinkling the skin. Each treatment is designed specifically to fit each patient’s individual needs.

For more information about Botox, or to set up a consultation, contact Dr. Lawrence Colen or Dr. Uroskie at their Norfolk office today. Our injections are always performed by the physician.
