Candidates for Facial Rejuvenation
The best candidates for facial rejuvenation treatments will likely have one or more of the following concerns:

- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Hyperpigmentation (brown spots)
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Mild to moderate skin laxity
- Shallow scarring from acne or chicken pox
Options in Facial Rejuvenation
Dr Thomas offers the following options in facial rejuvenation:
Thermage offers the option of skin tightening without surgery. Targeted heating penetrates the surface of the skin, restoring elasticity and stimulating the body’s own collagen production. Treatments take 30-90 minutes to complete and do not require any type of anaesthesia. Most patients will see results appear gradually as collage production increases and the underlying skin structure receives additional support.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is an effective method of exfoliation that removes top layers of skin to reveal softer, smoother skin underneath. Fraxel and Intense pulses of laser light (IPL) work deep underneath the skin’s surface to stimulate cell regeneration and collagen production. CO2 laser resurfacing can be used to rejuvenate skin but also treat sun damaged skin lesions. Depending on the depth of the procedure, this treatment may be performed under local or general anaesthesia.
Recovery will also vary, with the deepest treatment requiring about two weeks of healing time.
When fine lines and wrinkles begin to make an appearance, injectable treatments can help to smooth them away and restore your youthful appearance. Dr Thomas offers both wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers to address a wide range of aging options. Injectable treatments typically take just a few minutes to complete and there is no downtime after the procedure.
Facial rejuvenation is an effective way to enhance your appearance without surgery. With a variety of options to choose from, you are sure to find the right facial rejuvenation procedure for you. For more information about these treatments, contact Dr Thomas on 03 9034 7738.See Before and Afters
