Palo Alto, California (PRWEB) May 14, 2010
Dr. Daryl Hoffman (http://www.dkhoffmanmd.com), a board-certified plastic surgeon performing facial enhancement procedures such as face lift for San Jose patients, says many more people are having nonsurgical medspa treatments after facial plastic surgery as a way to improve both the quality and longevity of their results.
"Procedures like face lifts and eyelid surgery already create results that last many years, but every patient wants to make sure those benefits last as long as possible," notes Dr. Hoffman. "I'm finding that medical spa treatments give me some of the best ways to do that. It's exciting that my patients are seeing benefits with the help of something as simple as an injectable treatment, for instance."
The best maintenance treatment to extend San Jose face lift surgery results will vary depending on the patient, but Dr. Hoffman says the most effective options generally fall into two categories: injectables and laser skin rejuvenation. Injectable dermal fillers, for example, can enhance and help maintain surface-level smoothing and even promote better skin health by stimulating collagen production. Laser skin rejuvenation helps destroy dead and damaged cells that give the skin an unhealthy appearance, and in the process can supplement the tightening effects of the patient's original surgery.
"These treatments can improve the health and appearance of the skin to maintain what the face lift already accomplished," explains Dr. Hoffman. "There's a qualitative benefit because the results look more complete, but the big attraction is the chance to make sure that impressive results stay impressive for as long as possible."
Procedures like "mini" face lifts mean that an experienced plastic surgeon serving San Jose can create lasting improvements without the long recovery times required by older techniques. And to maintain those surgical results, injectables and laser treatments usually take under half an hour to perform, with most patients needing only 1 or 2 treatments a year.
"A face lift can delay aging significantly, but a good surgeon will educate patients honestly about the limitations of each procedure right along with the benefits," he notes. "Surgical face lift is the gold standard for results that last for years, and we are seeing some truly impressive results with these procedure pairings, but regardless of the treatment package someone is offering, choosing a trustworthy surgeon still has to be your foremost priority."
