Everyone yearns to have smooth, glowing skin, but several imperfections may hinder this desire from coming true. Whether you’re concerned about acne scars, fine lines, or wrinkles, Dr. Leo Urbinelli in Portland has your back. He offers a wide range of nonsurgical and surgical treatments with minimal risks and excellent results.
What you should know about plastic and reconstructive facial surgery
Facial plastic surgery involves using advanced technology to reshape your facial structures, such as nose, chin, neckline, and cheekbones, enhancing their appearance. Most people are motivated to seek this surgery after a disease or injury or to correct a childhood deformity. Some may also consider this treatment to eliminate contour irregularities, make facial features more proportional, or reverse signs of aging. At PNW Plastic Surgery, Dr. Urbinelli adopts a patient-centered approach to unlock your hidden beauty and ensure you are satisfied with the results. Whether you want to alter the shape of your facial features or eliminate signs of aging, you can count on Dr. Urbinelli to offer the comprehensive care you deserve.
Facial cosmetic procedures you should consider
During your initial appointment at PNW Plastic Surgery, Dr. Urbinelli may conduct a thorough physical exam and enquire about your goals and expectations before developing a treatment plan. He may educate you about each cosmetic treatment’s risks and benefits before suggesting the most effective one. Some of the facial cosmetic treatments you may want to consider include:
- Radiofrequency microneedling
If you’re interested in skin rejuvenation, your provider may recommend radiofrequency microneedling. This state-of-art technique combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to create monitored microtrauma in the target areas. The heat from the microneedle tips causes monitored dermal injury to induce skin rejuvenation from the inside out, resulting in fresh, new skin.
- Chemical peels
During a chemical peel, the team utilizes a specially formulated acidic solution to meticulously exfoliate the dry skin, allowing new skin to grow. This treatment minimizes the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun spots.
- Skincare products
Currently, there are numerous brands of skin care products, some of which may cause more harm than good. It is crucial to be skeptical about every skin product before using it. The PNW Plastic Surgery team offers FDA-approved skin care products with safe and effective ingredients that resolve skin imperfections, giving you a supple, glowing look. These products are strictly prescribed only to ensure they are not misused.
What to expect after a facial reconstruction procedure
If you have undergone a noninvasive procedure, your doctor may allow you to resume your daily activities immediately. However, if you choose facial reconstruction surgery, you may need to take some time off school or work to recover. The recovery period’s length will depend on age, general health, pain tolerance, treatment technique, and attitude. Dr. Urbinelli always tries to hide the incisions in your natural skin folds to minimize scarring. In most cases, the visible scars eventually heal, leaving thin pale lines that are hard to notice.
