Botox as Facial Rejuvenation

Most of us want to put our best face forward in a world that grows more competitive every day. Youthfulness often seems to give us an advantage in our career, love life and just about anything else. 

What Causes Skin to Age?

Unfortunately, signs of aging are often more apparent on the face and neck than on other parts of the body. The following are some of the factors that contribute to facial aging:
• Sun, wind and excesses of heat and cold
• Chemical and environmental pollution 
• Hormone changes
• Reduced collagen production and thinning of the skin
• Changes in facial bone structure 
• Poor skincare habits
• Poor diet
• Cigarette smoking 
• Medical conditions that produce scarring, including acne and chicken pox 
• Genetics

Recent research has focused on changes in the facial skeletal structure and their impact on how old a face appears. It has been found that bone tissue sharply decreases in the middle of the face and the lower nose region. These changes are apparent earlier in women than in men. Researchers hypothesize that the primary cause of skin wrinkling and sagging is a loss of bone structure that leads to excess skin with reduced skin flexibility. Facial rejuvenation techniques on the horizon may work to restore bone loss due to aging and thus prevent slackening of the skin.

What Procedures and Treatments Improve Aging Skin?

Many excellent options are available for those seeking a younger appearance. Facial rejuvenation is a term used to describe any treatment or procedure that is used to enhance the aging face and make it appear more youthful. These procedures and treatments include attempts to improve geometry and skin appearance and harmonize them with the hallmarks of youthfulness. Techniques used include brow lifts, elimination or reduction of bags under the eye, eyelid lifts, elimination of fading skin or age spots, reduction of sagging face and wrinkles t hrough a facelift and/or physical or chemical peeling, chin lifts and facial hairline restoration. These varied procedures can often achieve impressive results.

Other facial rejuvenation alternatives include the following: 
Botox injections 
• Cosmetic creams 
Permanent makeup 
Facial toning 
• Collagen or other materials injected into wrinkles 

Facial rejuvenation will mean something different for every person that begins a quest for a younger appearance. Procedures vary from non-invasive to minimally invasive. Typically, costs rise based on the degree of invasiveness, but results are also more long lasting. The most successful strategy may end up being a combination of treatments and procedures.

If you are in the Minneapolis St Paul Twin Cities area and are seeking to explore a variety of facial rejuvenation alternatives, please contact Crutchfield Dermatology to set up an initial consultation.

Patient Testimonials
(Letters from a patient who received a cosmetic treatment)

Dear Dr. Crutchfield,

I can not thank you enough for all of the hard work and time you devoted last week to making me look better! I really appreciate everything that you have done. You have made me feel like "25" again - (I wish)!

I look forward to the next appointment. Many, many thanks, again!

Faith S.

I have 3 homes; New York, Atlanta and Los Angeles. I have had cosmetic dermatology treatments in all three areas and I specifically fly to see Dr. Crutchfield in Eagan, Minnesota because he is absolutely the best cosmetic dermatologist I have ever encountered. He is more than a physician; he is an artist who constantly strives for perfection in his craft. I have sent several friends, including my sister, to see him and, to a person, they have all been extremely satisfied.

I appreciate your generosity and the great care I've received from you. You've made a patient for life and I recommend you to all my friends.

Thanks again!
