Come spring, there is a sense of lightness in the air. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your face too, could reflect this sense of freshness? Winter can be hard on the skin, often leaving the skin far from a desirous dewy complexion. At Virginia Surgical Arts, we can assist you in readying your skin for the season ahead. Leave your dull skin behind with our Palomar Lux1540 Fractional Laser—a minimally invasive skin resurfacing treatment.
Rejuvenating the skin from the inside out, the Palomar Lux1540 is a non-ablative fractional laser. Utilizing hundreds of tiny, high-precision, and uniform microbeams, the Palomar Lux1540 creates a series of narrow columns deep within the skin. Advanced in its technology, the Palomar Lux1540 penetrates up to 1mm deeper than other non-ablative resurfacing treatments. But, what if that is not enough? It is inevitable that as one progresses in years, aging, stress, and the undeniable pull of gravity will all take a toll on a man’s and woman’s youthful appearance. When minimally invasive treatments, like laser treatments, are not enough—Dr. Vendetti can perform a number of surgical procedures to rejuvenate your facial appearance.
Offering deep exfoliation—cellular debris is expelled through skin resurfacing. By resurfacing the outer layers of the skin, surface imperfections and irregularities can be improved. These include:
Advanced in its technology, the Palomar Lux1540 penetrates up to 1mm deeper than other non-ablative resurfacing treatments. Thus, the Palomar Lux1540 is able to make structural changes within the cellular level—eliminating the cause of the visible imperfection. Improvements can be seen in:
Accelerating the skins formation of new, healthy tissue, the Palomar Lux1540 can reverse signs of photoaging in the skin. Similarly, laser resurfacing stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin—both structural proteins that give the skin its taut, youthful appearance. When treating aged skin, the Palomar Lux1540:
With age, our facial appearance—and makeup—changes. Surgical procedures allow Dr. Vendetti to address the multiple causes of facial aging at a deeper level than is available through non-surgical procedures. Slowly, skin that was once taut, makes its way downwards—with lax and excess skin, facial sagging and an all over droopiness can occur. No minimally invasive surgery can effectively target excess skin.
Not limited to the skin alone, facial muscles weaken and are likewise susceptible to the effects of aging. With access to your underlying facial structure, Dr. Vendetti is able to address and tighten these now loose and sagging muscles.
A facelift addresses the mid to lower face as well as the jawline. Along with elevating sagging skin and muscles, a facelift removes any looseness that is present in the jowl and neck areas. Addressing excess skin, Dr. Vendetti expertly trims away any extra skin as he carefully re-drapes the skin of the lower face and neck.
Rejuvenating the upper part of the face, an eyebrow lift works to reposition a sagging brow. Raising the eyebrows to a more youthful position, men and women appear more alert and energetic. An eyebrow lift further refreshes one’s appearance as it can minimize the deep creases that develop across the forehead and the finer wrinkles that form along the bridge of the nose.
For many men and women, their eyes are often one of the first places to show the daily “wear and tear” that aging can bring. A droopy lid can often lend to a tired appearance. Eyelid surgery “reenergizes” the eyes in one of two ways: addressing the excess or overhanging skin of the upper lid and/or addressing lower eyelid puffiness and bulging.
Highly experienced, Dr. Vendetti will work closely with you to discover your unique facial rejuvenation needs. He may even suggest that a combination approach is best—combining one or more surgical procedures with a minimally invasive treatment.
