Bloomfield Hills, MI – Long gone are the days when the only options for better skin were vast amounts of makeup or painful, time-consuming procedures. While a healthy lifestyle goes a long way, sometimes it’s just not enough to keep skin youthful, even, and smooth. Luckily, there are more options now than ever before for getting –and maintaining– perfection.
“We have so many ways to help people have the appearance they’ve always dreamed of,” says top Michigan surgeon, Dr. Ali. The board-certified doctor, with more than 6,000 plastic surgeries to his credit, continues, “Contrary to popular belief, facial treatments don’t have to be painful or expensive, and they may take less time than most people think. For some procedures, patients can come in during the morning and return to work after lunch.” Below are some of the newest offerings from Dr. Ali’s Amae Plastic Surgery Center.
Non-ablative Laser Facial Treatments
This popular procedure is ideal for treating age spots, scars, wrinkles, and sun-damaged skin. As it doesn’t damage the skin’s surface, healing is relatively fast. Also called fractional resurfacing, non-ablative treatments can give the skin a more even tone with a very minimal amount of pain. What’s better, this type of procedure can have pronounced results for even those under 50 with non-sagging skin.
Depending on the patient’s goals, photo facials are used for everything from reducing brown spots, acne, spider veins, and redness, to boosting the body’s production of collagen. “There are several different versions of this treatment, so it’s important to talk with your doctor to best match your needs,” advises Dr. Ali. The two main types of photo facials utilize light-emitting diodes (LEDs) or intense pulsed light (IPL). “Since these treatments have different modalities and outcomes, I carefully consult with each patient to decide which will yield the best results possible.”
While prices can vary on photo facials, it’s still a fairly inexpensive way to revitalize skin.
Micro needling is a fast, simple and nearly painless procedure that doesn’t use chemicals or abrasives. Instead, it uses a series of tiny needles that stimulate the body’s production of collagen and skin repair mechanisms. “What’s great about micro needling,” notes Dr. Ali, “is that it can be done easily and on any area of the body. You can return to work immediately following treatment, and the outcome is fantastic.” Drastic improvements are noticeable within a few weeks, though multiple visits are usually recommended for optimal benefits.
Micro needling can treat fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, stretch marks, scars, aging hands, and loosening skin. It can also be effective as a way to fill in acne scars and improve overall skin tone.
The cost of this procedure can vary, so a conversation with a doctor is crucial. “The treatment can include a numbing agent or not, growth factor serum or not, aftercare or not, so I’m happy to discuss options with each patient,” says Dr. Ali, noting that such customization is key to attaining lasting results.
Using a Combination of Cosmetic Surgery Treatments
“When trying to achieve your ideal skin, it’s often best to use a combination of treatments,” notes Dr. Ali. “Using multiple methods can get you the desired results in a timely and sustainable manner.” Since many of these procedures may require several repetitions, it’s important to keep in mind your ultimate goals.
“Of course,” Dr. Ali adds, “taking care of yourself is also paramount. A good diet, regular exercise, good sleep, and at-home skincare all contribute to having a healthy life. However, there are now other ways we can improve upon your physique, so why not take advantage of that as well?”
Dr. Ali is happy to consult with patients to develop a detailed care plan perfectly suited to their desires.
