The options for facial rejuvenation treatments come in many forms that can help treat areas of the face and neck, and target a broad demographic of patients.

Patients seeking to rejuvenate their appearance have distinctive, often personal reasons as to why. Whether it is to smooth fine lines, add volume to an area, decrease the appearance of scars or simply to feel more confident and youthful, every procedure goal is unique, just like the individual receiving treatment.

“There really is a huge range of goals. Some have specific lines or spots they want to improve, but others may ask to look less tired or angry or to look younger or more attractive,” said Toronto-based dermatologist Dr. Julia Carroll. “Many of my patients simply ask my opinion on what I would do to make a positive change. In general, my patients want to feel better about themselves but still want to look like themselves.” 

 Among women and men ages 20 and up, many have sought out rejuvenation treatments to benefit the appearance of their skin and ultimately improve their self-confidence.

“I have patients in their 20’s and 30’s who are looking to treat certain areas such as hollows under the eyes or lips. They are also curious about what they can do for prevention,” said Dr. Carroll.

“We are also seeing a real increase in men looking to shave a few years off their look. I think they deserve to feel good about themselves too,” said Dr. Carroll. “Men seeking rejuvenating treatments are definitely the growing segment of my practice. For men, I advise to keep things looking really natural and to still leave a few wrinkles behind.”

Rejuvenation begins with, but is not limited to, procedures which target fine lines and deep wrinkles, but may also be used to smooth out the surface of the skin, add volume, help reduce the appearance of scars, add a youthful glow to the skin, and more.

“One of the newest treatments is Restylane Skinboosters, which is a light filler that gives internal hydration,” said Dr. Carroll. “It produces a glow or radiance which makes everyone look refreshed without looking ‘done’”. 

Restylane® Skinboosters™ is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment that uses a unique form of hyaluronic acid to improve skin’s appearance, smoothness and elasticity for a radiant-looking, youthful-looking glow in the back of hands, upper neck, lower cheek and jawline.

Because rejuvenation treatments come in many forms, patients may not know where to begin. Although they may have an idea of what area they would like to target, some patients may just be seeking out advice or a professional opinion.

To those looking to try a rejuvenation treatment for the first time, Dr. Carroll recommends seeking a physician with a good reputation; ideally someone whose main practice is aesthetics. “When you are at the office, check out their staff and the physician to see if their aesthetic matches yours.”

“If you feel pressured that day or the deal seems too good to be true then I would walk away.  It should be a positive experience; something you are doing for yourself!”
