Skin Aesthetics After Bariatric Surgery
At Bariatric & Aesthetic Surgery Associates, we offer a variety of skin aesthetics treatments to help you maintain your best appearance. The following procedures can be performed on their own or as a complement to your weight loss plan to rejuvenate and refresh your look.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, what we like to call “Liquid Gold,” is a non-surgical injectable that can eliminate facial wrinkles. With a single treatment, BOTOX® Cosmetic can temporarily stop small muscle movements beneath the skin. This lets the skin lie flatter and softens frown lines, diffuses crow’s feet, erases forehead wrinkles, and even provides a subtle brow lift.
It takes just 10 minutes to administer BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, and within a few days, you may see a marked improvement in the treated areas. Wrinkles may continue to reduce for up to a month after the treatment. The results may last up to four months before a touch-up treatment is recommended. With regular BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, you can preserve a youthful and wrinkle-free appearance.
JUVÉDERM® is a collection of non-surgical soft tissue fillers that can rejuvenate the face by correcting wrinkles and volume loss. After aging and weight loss, individuals may develop problem areas including thinning cheeks, smile lines, laugh lines, and other wrinkles or contour irregularities. The hyaluronic acid found in JUVÉDERM® plumps the skin to restore smooth skin and natural facial contours.
JUVÉDERM® injections take only a few minutes to perform, and the results are seen immediately. Depending on the type of filler, your results may last up to two years before a touch-up treatment is recommended. Your personalized JUVÉDERM® treatment might require JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC (corrects mild to moderate facial wrinkles and enhances lip fullness and shape), JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC (corrects deeper facial folds and volume loss), or JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC (corrects cheek volume loss and enhances facial contours).
Facial peels can correct a variety of skin problems associated with aging and hormonal imbalances. Your customized treatment will address the issues that are most important to you about your skin. Facial peels can help to restore moisture, smooth, tone, revitalize, and balance out skin quality. Some of the problems that can be corrected with facial peels include fine lines, roughness, dryness, age spots, scars or depressions, poor skin tone, blemishes, dull complexion, and hyperpigmentation.
SKIN TAG REMOVAL
Skin tags are small growths of excess skin that are often found around the neck, under the arms, between the legs, and in other areas that experience lots of friction. While harmless, some people are bothered by their skin tags and wish to have them removed. At Bariatric & Aesthetic Surgery Associates, we can perform skin tag removal to give you smooth and even skin once again.
SKIN AESTHETICS AFTER BARIATRIC SURGERY
Bariatric surgery can help patients lose a significant amount of weight and reclaim a slim and attractive body shape. While the benefits of bariatric surgery are many, losing 50, 100, or 200+ pounds can be hard on your skin. It may lead to hanging skin around your body, and it can even produce sagging cheeks and facial folds. Your modified diet may make your skin drier and leave you with a duller complexion. The shock to your systems and changing hormone levels can also lead to acne flare-ups, and poor nutrition can give you a perpetually tired look.
Being meticulous about nutrition, vitamins, and water consumption during and after your weight loss journey can help you maintain healthy skin. Our team will help you develop the best strategy to care for your skin through your weight loss journey. Your personalized skin aesthetics plan may include some of the treatments listed above. For example, JUVÉDERM® fillers can address facial folds and restore lost volume to improve your facial contours. Skin tag removal can eliminate small growths of skin that may have formed before your weight loss. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can correct forehead and brow wrinkles and awaken your appearance. Facial peels can improve dry, rough, dull, and sagging skin to give you a youthful and vibrant complexion. All of our skin aesthetics treatments at Bariatric & Aesthetic Surgery Associates can rejuvenate and refresh your appearance so that you look your very best after bariatric surgery.
