Central Texas Plastic Surgery offers a host of anti-aging treatments to keep you looking youthful and energetic. Dr. McGee and his staff perform all of these anti-aging treatments right here at our MedSpa.
Scientific advances in the field of anti-aging have advanced rapidly over the last 10 years. Improvements in laser skin resurfacing, the use of muscle relaxers like BOTOX and Dysport, and the introduction of a host of dermal fillers allow us to craft an anti-aging plan unique to your situation and desired outcome.
Skin rejuvenation and other anti-aging treatments are not only for patients who are getting close to middle age. We have helped patients of all ages benefit by offering a wide variety of procedures. For example, patients in their 20‘s can benefit from laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels to eliminate sun damage. Laser skin resurfacing and dermal fillers can help treat acne scars in people of all ages. For teens, a proactive program of regular chemical peels can help prevent acne scars by lessening the severity of acne.
Chemical peels are a very popular anti-aging option. Sun exposure, acne and age can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. We recommend a chemical peel for our patients who want skin to look smoother, more even and younger, but do not need more advanced anti-aging treatments like laser skin resurfacing.
A chemical peel, also called chemexfoliation or derma peeling, is one of the simplest and least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. All chemical peels, regardless of strength, use a solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. Although it is mostly thought of as a facial treatment, you can also treat the skin on your neck and hands.
Chemical peels vary in levels of strength. In general, the stronger the chemical, the deeper the peel and the more impressive the results. However, the deeper the peel, the more pain you’re likely to experience and the longer the recovery time will be. The amount of time required for application also varies. For example, a light peel which you might use for maintenance can be applied in 20-30 minutes and with little to no post-treatment downtime. A full-face and neck deep chemical peel may take as long as 1-2 hours to perform.
Our older patients can benefit from dermal filler treatments, such as Juvederm, Radiese, and Restylane to fill deeper wrinkles and lines such as those found around the eyes or mouth. These same patients will also benefit from the application of BOTOX and Dysport to relax certain wrinkle causing muscles in the face.
Our patients consistently report that anti-aging treatments can lead to a positive outlook and improved self confidence. We offer consultations at our Round Rock office so that you can better understand your options.
