Facial Rejuvenation Q & A

What is facial rejuvenation?

Damage can occur to the skin over time as facial expressions, natural aging, and sun exposure takes their toll. Facial rejuvenation treatments can bring back your skin’s brilliance and give you an ageless glow. Dr. Burton creates customized facial rejuvenation plans that may include Botox injections, microdermabrasion, or Juvederm fillers to help you look and feel your best.

What is Botox?

Botox is a non-surgical injection used to relax facial muscles. It blocks the neurotransmitter that signals muscle activity. The result is a face that does not contract in the same way, allowing for the softening of deep wrinkles while helping prevent new wrinkles from forming.

Botox injections occur in-office and are quick and tolerated well. To smooth frown lines, soften crow’s feet, or take years off your face with wrinkle reduction, consider Botox injections.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an injectable filler that relies on hyaluronic acid, rather than collagen, to add volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the human body that diminishes as you age. When you produce less hyaluronic acid and experience the natural aging process, a gradual loss of facial volume occurs in your smile lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet, which can lead to tired looking eyes and sunken cheeks. Juvederm fillers give you back your youthful voluminous face and can also plump up your lips.

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion uses a fine mist of crystals and vacuums suction to smooth skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and deep folds in the cheeks, neck, and around the mouth. It’s also very effective on sun-damaged skin, age spots, clogged pores, and acne. The results-driven procedure is commonly used on men and women to treat moderate acne scars and other facial scars.

A microdermabrasion session can be done in as little as 15 to 30 minutes, and it’s pain-free. Since everyone’s skin is unique, Dr. Burton advises his patients that results are not always immediate and several separate sessions are usually required to obtain the optimal result.

What is a facial fat transfer?

A facial fat transfer, or grafting, uses fat from your own body to naturally contour your face. The fat is taken from your abdomen, waist or thighs using a syringe and reinjected into the problem area on your face. The goal of facial fat grafting is to reverse the signs of natural aging to achieve a natural youthful glow.
