Skin Rejuvenating Procedures

Here are more notes from the skin care consultant plastic reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon, consultant plastic surgeon and aesthetic surgeon, talked about nonsurgical and surgical options for skin, face and body rejuvenation. While non-surgical procedures are becoming more popular due to its quicker recovery time and a possibility of complications, surgical procedures are useful in situations where there is severe aging on the face, or when patients prefer a long-lasting change. About two thirds of cosmetic surgery patients are from the 30 to 40 age group, citing eyelid and eyebag surgeries most common in his practice. On the other hand, that most of the patients in their 40s and 50s decide on skin rejuvenation procedures. About 25 per cent of his patients are male.

Non-surgical procedures

Chemical peels

Causes a controlled exfoliation of the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin, with the use of acid. Improvement is not very good for acne scars, but it can be used to reduce pore size, alongside IPL and Cool Touch.

Intense pulse light (IPL)

A multiple wavelength therapy used to remove pigmentation, fine lines and prominent vessels on the skin.

Cool Touch laser

A laser system for stimulation of deeper tissues to increase collagen and elastin production.


Made from bovine collagen or obtained through autologous fat transplantation, it is used to fill up a small area such as a depression of an acne scar.

Botulinum Toxin Type A (BTA)

Injected into particular areas of the face, the toxin acts to weaken muscles involved in dynamic lines such as frown lines or crow's eyes. Safe when used in the right dosage, and by professionals only.


Not ideal for obese individuals. The ideal can e is one who exercises and eats a healthy diet, but who are unable to lose fat in localized fat deposit areas most commonly found in the lower abdomen, thighs and buttocks.

A word of caution: Be wary of beauticians offering silicon injections masked as collagen as fillers in the skin. It is extremely hazardous to health. For example, silicon injection in the breast  issues, as opposed to silicon implants under breast muscles, usually migrate to other parts of the breast, causing atrophy.

Reminder to individuals that beauticians, who are mainly trained to perform facials, are not supposed to perform any procedure that is invasive to the skin. Only a qualified physician, such as a plastic surgeon or dermatologist, are able to perform those procedures.
