Photorejuvenation – Look Younger in San Francisco

With the nearly year-round great weather in San Francisco and Bay Area, many people spend more time in the sun then they should. Considering the skin is the outermost protection against the environment, over time, it is only natural that it begins to show the signs of early aging and sun damage, even more so if you are an avid sunbather, skier or involved in other outdoor activities.

If your skin makes you look older than you are, Dr. Shahin Javaheri can help you decide which skin care treatment option is best for you. For many patients, photorejuvenation in San Francisco is a great option.

Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment which virtually erases skin damage. By supplying a broad spectrum of light that reaches deep down to the collagen producing level of the skin, the patented non-laser technology diminishes the signs of aging without harming the surface of the skin.

Most people that undergo the treatments end up with healthier and younger looking skin, especially around the face, neck and chest, starting with their first treatments. Treatment take roughly twenty to forty minutes,and a minimum of five treatments is recommended for optimal results. Recovery is considered immediate, with minor discomfort and some redness is expected.

Facial Fillers Explained including Radiesse & Collagen

Fillers are artificially synthesized materials used for the purpose of softening wrinkles and plumbing areas of the face that have either never had enough volume or have lost volume with age.

There are many different classes, product names, and manufacturers of facial fillers, including Radiesse, Restylane, Collagen and more, and this wide range of products and aggressive marketing campaigns can be confusing to patients.

Like botulinum toxin injections, filler injections are a minimal-to-no downtime procedure that is performed in a single office visit. Results are almost instantaneous and can last over a year for many patients.

At the end of the day, certain facial fillers will work better for certain patients in specific areas of the face, and the best course of action is to talk to an experienced plastic surgeon, and Dr. Shahin Javaheri can help you select the best facial filler for your situation.
