A variety of non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures are performed by Dr. Charles Lively for patients from Odessa, Midland, and West Texas to turn back the clock. These procedures were designed to reverse, improve or erase the earliest signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines and sun-damaged skin. They are often referred to as “Lunchtime Procedures” because they take very little time to perform and do not have any recovery period.
Signs of facial aging
In your thirties, wrinkles and age spots may begin to appear. Your skin may seem less radiant and may show signs of discoloration.
In your forties, the collagen and elastin support network begins to break down. Lines and wrinkles become more prominent as your skin becomes dryer. The blood flow begins to slow down, leaving your skin with less of a blush.
Once in your fifties, the new cell production decreases. Your skin retains less water, which increases the wrinkle formation. At the same time the underlying fat cells in your face shrink and your excess skin begins to sag.
Why are they called Lunchtime Facial Rejuvenation procedures?
They are called lunchtime procedures because you can improve various signs of aging in just a short period of time and return to your normal activities immediately. Your skin will have a healthy glow, age spots will lighten or disappear, wrinkles around the eyes and frown lines will be softened, and sagging skin can be improved. Patients love these procedures because they help slow down the appearance of aging. It’s easier than ever before to look your best.
Your Lunchtime Facial Rejuvenation treatment options
Botox® Injections relax the muscles so they do not contract. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion; allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.
Light Chemical Peels can improve the texture and appearance of rough, wrinkled or spotted skin. They gently exfoliate, smooth, and soften the skin while they remove the outer skin cell layer. Light chemical peels can renew your skin’s texture and improve its clarity. They’re great to improve dull, lifeless complexions.
Microdermabrasion leaves your skin softer, smoother and fresher looking. In as little as twenty minutes, this gentle, abrasive technique efficiently produces satisfying results.
Non-Ablative Lasers treat wrinkles by stimulating the production of your body’s own collagen. This newly formed collagen fills the wrinkle from within. Some patients see improvement after only one treatment. Unlike CO2 and Erbium lasers, there is no downtime.
Photo Rejuvenation is designed to combat the effects of aging in a gentler way. The procedure is performed with lasers that use intense pulsed light to treat age spots, broken capillaries, blotchy pigmentation and improve the appearance of wrinkles. After your treatment the treated vein or lesion will gradually fade and slowly disappear, leaving your skin smoother and softer.
Wrinkle Injections using soft tissue fillers can improve the appearance of facial wrinkles. Fillers can also add fullness to the lips and reduce the appearance of acne scars.
What is recovery like from Lunchtime Facial Rejuvenation procedures?
After Dr. lively performs your facial rejuvenation treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling at the treatment site. This can be covered with make-up and you can resume normal activities immediately. What our patients like the most about these procedures is that no one has to know they had them. They just look better!
