The skin is a living organ, the largest living organ of the human body to be exact. As the skin lives and breathes each day, it must slough off old cells as it replaces new ones. Dermabrasion is an exfoliating skin procedure that uses a rotating instrument to remove the outer layers of skin on the face in order to improve the skin’s appearance. This procedure is successful for treating superficial damage and aging of the skin in order to help patients achieve a glowing and more youthful appearance.
Dermabrasion is a cosmetic skin procedure used to improve the look of facial skin. When dead skin cells remain on the face, the facial appearance can look dull and older than it truly is. Lingering dead skin cells leave the skin looking heavy, causing them to settle into fine lines and wrinkles so that they look deeper. By encouraging the sloughing off of these dead skin cells, dermabrasion reveals a new layer of skin. (more…)
The holiday season is already upon us, and as you continue to prepare for another gathering and even more pictures, you may begin to feel a bit self-conscious about the appearance of your face. Wrinkles and lines form rapidly as we age, and if you are seeing family and friends that you have not seen since the last holiday season, they may notice a great deal of change in your face. Before you travel or invite loved ones into your home, call the office of Hunter Moyer, MD and ask how we can help you put your best face forward this holiday season.
One of the best methods for achieving a radiant appearance quickly and without going under the knife is through Botox Cosmetic injections. These injections are the perfect facial rejuvenation treatment for patients who would like to achieve plastic surgery results without the pain, healing, and downtime of a cosmetic surgical procedure. Dr. Hunter Moyer of Atlanta Plastic Surgery, PC is a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes in Botox Cosmetic injections, facial fillers, and other non-surgical treatments.
Botox Cosmetic injections are neuro-modulators that alter the way in which the brain reacts to movements in the face. Most commonly Botox Cosmetic injections are used along the forehead and between the eyebrows to correct wrinkles and the “frown lines” that acquire over time. When the muscles of the face are repeatedly used, they set in wrinkles that are deeply set and very hard to mask. Because the upper face is used a great deal in expression, lines and wrinkles can become very obvious and cause many people to feel self-conscious. Botox Cosmetic is composed of a highly purified form of botulinum toxin that relaxes wrinkle-causing facial movements between the eyes and along the forehead. By smoothing these muscles, each treatment reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, with the effects lasting for an average of four to six months.
