What is Facial Rejuvenation? Turning Back the Clock on Your Face’s Appearance

Facial rejuvenation encompasses a variety of cosmetic treatments and procedures that make your face look younger. Facial rejuvenation has gained mainstream acceptance in recent years. The worldwide annual expenditure on facial rejuvenation is expected to grow from $24.6 billion to around $44.5 billion by 2030.

Many people wish they could turn back the clock on their appearance. However, the goal of facial rejuvenation is not to “reverse the aging process” or market anti-aging. The goal is to work with an individual’s specific facial structure to optimize their appearance with a natural, refreshed look.

What is Facial Rejuvenation? Turning Back the Clock on Your Face's Appearance

What does facial rejuvenation do?

Skin rejuvenation procedures aim to improve skin tone, texture, and elasticity while reducing signs of aging.

Facial rejuvenation allows you to put your best face forward without feeling self-conscious about:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Jowls (loose skin below the jawline)
  • Volume loss
  • Hollow or sunken eyes
  • Frown lines
  • Age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Pigmentation changes
  • Nasolabial folds (deep lines that run from the outside of the nostrils to the corners of the mouth)

 Restoring facial volume, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improving your skin’s quality can all make you look younger and more refreshed.

What are non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments?

Non-surgical skin treatments are less invasive, involve less downtime, and are performed in an outpatient setting. Non-surgical cosmetic treatments for the face generally involve injectables such as dermal fillers and Botox.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected under the skin. These injections replenish the hyaluronic acid levels in the skin and pull in moisture from the body for a plumping and smoothing effect.

Fillers reduce the appearance of wrinkles by filling them in from under the skin. They can also make your lips look more plump and restore lost volume around the eyes that make them look sunken and tired.

Will Botox get rid of wrinkles?

Botulinum toxin injections — administered under the brand names Botox or Dysport — temporarily paralyze muscles to smooth facial wrinkles on the skin’s surface. Relaxing targeted facial muscles reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What is Kybella used for?

Kybella is an injectable fat-reduction treatment. It dissolves the membranes that hold fat cells together in the chin and neck area. Kybella injections offer a great non-surgical treatment for a double chin.

What is liquid rhinoplasty?

Liquid rhinoplasty — also called a “non-surgical nose job” — adjusts the shape of the nose using dermal fillers. Fillers are injected and then contoured to make small changes to the shape and appearance of your nose. Because your nose is the center of your face, even small changes can improve the balance and appearance of your entire face.

External facial rejuvenation treatment options

Patients who don’t want to deal with injections may see some improvement in their skin texture, color, and overall appearance through surface-level treatments. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser skin resurfacing all work to make your skin healthier by removing the top layer and revealing the younger skin beneath. These treatments also improve your body’s natural collagen and elastin production.

Intense pulsed light and microneedling treatments cause minor, targeted damage to your skin. This triggers your body to improve collagen production. Collagen is the protein responsible for keeping your skin smooth, hydrated, and healthy. Increasing collagen and elastin production makes your skin naturally healthier.

What are surgical cosmetic procedures for facial rejuvenation?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), more than 1.5 million cosmetic surgical procedures are carried out every year. These more invasive procedures have a longer recovery time than injectables or skin care regimens, but can also provide the most drastic results.

However, facial rejuvenation cosmetic surgery results can last years or even a lifetime. Dr. Saber has experience with a wide range of facial rejuvenation procedures. Depending on your medical history, skin quality, and appearance goals, she might recommend one surgery or a combination of procedures.

What is a facelift?

Facelift (rhytidectomy) lifts and tightens skin tissue, removes excess skin, smooths deep folds, and recontours the face as necessary. It’s the most effective way to address signs of aging facial skin; the results last for over a decade.

To keep your results for longer, follow a good skincare routine, avoid sun exposure, and avoid major weight fluctuations.

What does a brow lift do?

A brow lift corrects low, sagging, or uneven brows. A brow lift improves the appearance of the forehead, the brow, and the area around the eyes. A brow lift can be done alone or with other facial procedures, such as eyelid surgery or a facelift.

How is eyelid surgery done?

An eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) removes excess fat and skin from the upper and lower eyelids. Sagging skin and puffiness on the eyelids can make you look older and tired. It can be combined with a brow lift.

What is a neck lift?

A neck lift (lower rhytidectomy) treats excess fat and sagging skin in the lower face, chin, and neck, and muscle banding in the neck. It also addresses the loss of contours in the face and neck due to aging.

Can rhinoplasty change your face?

Rhinoplasty is surgery that changes the size and/or shape of your nose. The reason for rhinoplasty may be to change the appearance of the nose and/or to improve breathing. It can be cosmetic and functional.

    I was fortunate to find Dr. Saber after researching board-certified surgeons who specialize in breast cancer reconstruction revision surgery. I knew I was in good hands from the moment I spoke with the lovely and efficient Marlene, Dr Saber's office manager. Dr Saber patiently listened to my concerns and, after examining me, explained what I could realistically expect the outcome to be from another surgery. She also explained to me that she would need to review my previous surgery notes before we could discuss a possible further surgery, which I found comforting and highly ethical. I also discussed a couple of other procedures that I would like done, including fat removal from my large upper arms that had caused me great embarrassment for several years. Dr. Saber is an excellent surgeon who is incredibly kind and genuine. She truly understands the female body and the emotional aspect of body insecurities yet, she is transparent about what can and cannot be done and takes time to discuss realistic expectations and outcomes. My breast reconstruction revision surgery will take place in the New Year, but in the meantime, I have the most fabulous upper arms that I recently flaunted in a strapless dress (something I have not done in years). Dr Saber is truly one of a kind, and I still cannot believe how fortunate I am to have found her. I highly recommend Dr Saber.

    I don’t have enough wonderful words to describe Dr Saber and Marlene! I had a tummy tuck done this year and from start to finish the entire experience was amazing. Marlene is always so helpful and works so hard to make every detail a breeze for you. When I had my consultation with Dr Saber I was at a point of complete agony with my body. She instantly took that stress and frustration off my shoulders! As a woman not being heard by doctors for years I left that consultation with happy tears knowing I had finally found my Dr. It was a major surgery and I felt completely zen and at peace going in because she really does make you feel that safe. I didn’t think I would ever look the way I do now! She gave me the gift of having the body I kept fighting for. I will never stop recommending her.

    I saw Dr. Saber when I broke my wrist. I ended up having to have surgery. She did an excellent job and I am healing nicely. She was very professional, but was also very kind and compassionate. I would highly recommend her!!

    Sandy Schaupp September 13, 2022

    I LOVED DR SABER!!! There are a few reasons why I chose her. One was because she’s a female Doctor that was my goal who also did a good job (which I was able to confirm with all her before and after photos) and what sold me was my safety in mind. She made me feel like I was in the best hands ever along with Marlene who coordinated everything THANK YOU LADIES! Dr Saber helped me get back the body I have always desired. I had a lot of stomach fat from weight gain and I lost weight so a lot of my weight was in my front lower and upper abdomen. Now I have a super beautiful curvy body like an hourglass after a tummy tuck and lipo she did. She understood the assignment hahaha . I’m 32 years old no kids just wanted to enjoy my younger body looking and feeling beautiful and she really took good care of me. Even after hours I had an emergency due to my fault but she was there and got back to me very quickly and I’m very grateful. I also think her work says a lot because I stopped taking pain medication on the 3rd day after surgery and was fine with very minimal pain I was able to tolerate the healing process. Highly recommend going with her I just had a wonderful experience and would do it all over again if I had too. Maybe after I have kids. Thanks Dr Saber and team <3

    Dr.Saber is by far one of the best plastic surgeons. I love how she takes her time to explain any procedure to the patients understanding. She always makes sure to answers any and all questions.From fillers to body contours she’s the one you want.

    Katherine Melara February 15, 2022

    Dr Saber is amazing! She is caring and very informative. I went in for fillers and she explained procedure step by step. I highly recommend her and look forward to future visits.

    Amanda Vazquez December 18, 2020

    Dr. Saber was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. She took time to listen, answer all my questions and was forthright in her recommendations. Her staff was friendly and helpful. I was very happy with the results and plan on going back. If you are looking for a first rate professional experience look no further she is the doctor for you!

    Dr. Saber is one of a kind plastic surgeon with a heart of gold. She is a well verse plastic surgeon that puts her patient's needs before anything else. She genuinely cares about every single patient, and her work speaks for itself. I notice every post-operative result on her Instagram (@saberplasticsurgery) the patients have this glow that radiates through. I have been going to Dr. Saber for my Botox for the past 3 years, and love the results every time. I know who I will be going to for any future plastic surgery needs, and will confidently refer family and friends to Dr. Saber for any Botox, fillers, and plastic surgery consultations.

    Rudy Garcia December 16, 2020

    I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Saber! I am so pleased with my results from a breast augmentation she performed on me back in late June! She answered all my questions and concerns before and after my surgery. She’s very easy to get in contact with and she’s so nice. She made feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. 100/10 Lover her work!!

    Amanda Villegas October 15, 2020

    Dr Saber is hands down the best surgeon! She took her time answering my questions and explained procedure in detail. After doing liposuction six months ago, I am extremely happy with my results and I appreciate her so much.

    Marlene Cosentino October 15, 2020

    Dr. Saber is so kind and thorough with her patients! She is an amazing doctor and genuinely cars about everyone she comes in contact with. I would recommend her to anyone for any hand surgery or cosmetic procedure.
