NON-SURGICAL FACELIFTS IN PHILADELPHIA
Many patients today want to correct a few issues they see taking place with their face as they begin to age. Patients are also starting at a younger age to consider plastic surgery. Many of these patients would rather not have surgical intervention yet, but by using some of the new, non-invasive procedures. These procedures often are all that is needed to give the patient a more youthful looking appearance with little to no recovery time. Dr. Pontell does a non-surgical facelift in Philadelphia for patients not quite ready for a surgical facelift.
Dr. Johathan Pontell is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon with The Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery Center. This is a fully accredited surgical facility with a very experienced team of experts to help him personally oversee his patients before, during and after surgery during the recovery process.
Dr. Pontell is an Ultherapy provider for the new non-invasive facelift for patients who are looking to tighten their skin by using a procedure that lifts the inner tissues of the face. This produces a more youthful appearance by triggering the production of new collagen in the skin. Middle-aged patients are pleased with this procedure for reducing the loose skin that develops as a person ages.
Dr. Pontell is the only Fraxel re:pair provider in Delaware Valley. This is another non-invasive procedure used to reduce the signs of premature aging with the use of a laser resurfacing system that provides smoother, tighter skin. It reduces wrinkles and fine lines while being the most advanced laser systems available today for skin resurfacing.
Chemical peels work by removing the uppermost layers of the facial skin cells. By removing these upper layer cells, fine lines, wrinkles, facial blemishes and acne scars are eliminated largely and the peel helps to restore the elastin and collagen lost during the aging process by jump-starting the rejuvenation process.
The plasma skin regeneration (PSR) is a new FDA-approved treatment peel where the top layer of skin cells is removed over a few days. The results of the PSR last for a year or more by producing higher levels of elastin and collagen. Although the PSR is compared to laser skin resurfacing, it does not require the same recovery time. Moreover, it eliminates wrinkles, scars and discolorations.
