Facial Rejuvenation

The face is usually one of the first and most obvious places on the human body to show signs of aging. Quite often, these signs are premature, brought on by stress, environment, and other external factors. It is common for perfectly healthy, active people to look older or more tired than they actually are. Inside, they may feel young and energetic, yet their faces fail to reflect this. For many people, this can lead to an overwhelming sense of imbalance, making them feel self-conscious about their appearance.

If this scenario sounds familiar, facial rejuvenation treatment may be your best option. Because individual needs vary from patient to patient, Dr. Pyo offers a complete range of procedures, from non-surgical treatments to minimally invasive surgeries. Whether you require a single procedure or a more comprehensive plan, Dr. Pyo will help you establish realistic goals to enhance the natural beauty of your face. The results will be discreet and absolutely natural looking, restoring youth and vitality to your appearance, as well as balance and harmony to your life.

Combining skill, experience, and a keen eye for detail, Dr. Pyo customizes treatment to the individual needs and goals of his patients. No two faces are exactly alike; therefore, no two procedures should be exactly alike. He takes particular pride in being able to enhance ethnic beauty, a rare skill among plastic surgeons.

Below are some of the procedures and services we offer as part of our facial rejuvenation program. If you have any questions about any of these, or if you would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pyo, please contact our office today.

Non-Surgical Treatments

Facial rejuvenation is often a matter of subtle refinement rather than drastic change. This is why we offer a complete range of non-surgical options to our patients, including Botox®, Restylane, Radiesse™, and Autologous fat injections. One of the most popular options is another LONG TERM filler called SCULPTRA.

SCULPTRA is the only filler that can be used for total facial volume restoration. We also offer a complete skin treatment program that features only the finest, most elite skin care products from Glytone and Avene. In many cases, we can enhance the natural beauty of your face without the need for even a single incision. You will look younger, healthier, and more energetic without any discomfort or prolonged recovery time.

We also offer both the Harmony Laser (PIXEL) and IPL treatments for facial rejuvenation, and the ACCENT, an effective FDA approved skin tightening, and contouring treatment based on RF ablation.

Botox® and other toxin injections are a safe, highly effective method of softening fine lines and other dynamic wrinkles in the face. Botox® targets the specific nerves that are responsible for these wrinkles, giving your skin a more supple, youthful appearance without disturbing those muscles that are essential to facial expression. Restylane is a clear injectable gel that is particularly effective in reducing fine lines around the lips and mouth and on the forehead. It is also quite effective and safe for management of deep creases of the lower lid. Like Botox®, it is completely safe and produces immediate results that can be repeated as necessary.

Often used in conjunction with Botox® treatments, Radiesse™ injections are natural and highly effective in promoting collagen growth, restoring fullness and youth to the face. It is longer lasting than either the Collagen or Restylance treatments, and is particularly effective in improving the contour of the cheek, and helping to elevate the cheek enough to improve the nasolabial folds.

Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid surgery is also known as blepharoplasty and is used to improve the appearance of both the upper and lower eyelids. This procedure will make you look more rested and alert, creating a rejuvenated appearance. This surgery treats excess fatty deposits that make the eyelids puffy, loose or sagging skin, excess skin and fine wrinkles, bags under the eyes, and droopiness of lower eyelids. These procedures are usually performed under sedation in Dr. Pyo’s state of the art, accredited office ambulatory surgery center.

Dr. Pyo also performs ptosis surgery in conjunction with the upper eyelid surgery on many patients who have more than just excess skin and fat, but have malposition of the upper lids. Please call Dr. Pyo to see whether you would benefit from rejuvenation of the eyelids.

Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

Many people still believe that a facelift is a radical step toward achieving beauty, a drastic procedure involving lengthy incisions and no small amount of pain.

Modern technology, however, has progressed to the point that most facelifts are relatively quick and painless, involving minimal invasion and little or no scarring. Using fiberoptic technology, Dr. Pyo can monitor the surgery on a television screen, allowing him to manipulate instruments with extreme precision. You will experience little or no discomfort, and the results will be subtle and entirely natural looking.

Many of our patients do not require a full facelift. This is why we offer partial facelifts that target specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks and the corners of the lips. Dr. Pyo believes that contour and volume are much more important to a youthful face than how tight the skin can be pulled. If you are in need of a full facelift for total facial rejuvenation, rest assured that Dr. Pyo will guide you through the process safely, and with technical expertise that comes from many years of experience performing this type of surgery. If you are interested in learning more about how Dr. Pyo’s expertise and artistic eye can combine to restore youth and 
beauty to your face, please contact our office today.

Precision TX Laser Face lift

For patients who are not yet ready for a full surgical facelift, who show early signs of aging of the neck and lower face, Dr. Pyo uses the Precision TX to treat the neck and face. It can treat excess fat, especially on the neck while tightening the skin and deep SMAS tissue, resulting in improvement and rejuvenation of the face, jowls, and neck.

Unlike other treatments which provide too much heat and cause irritation, this technology uses a temperature control system called ThermaGlide which leads to a reliable result with unprecedented safety. This procedure is minimally invasive and works well for those with modest neck and face aging. Recovery is much faster than surgery and you can remove gauze within a few days.

Neck lift

A neck lift done at Dr. Daniel Pyo’s office is a set of procedures done to enhance the appearance of your neck. These can include removing excess skin, removing or altering neck muscles, liposuction to remove excess fat, and Botox injection to address problems with fullness. During the procedure, one inch incisions are strategically placed under the chin or behind the ears to tighten neck muscles that have become loose over the years. This is done under local anesthesia with sedation and offers a quick recovery time.

Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Rhinoplasty allows you to change the size of your nose or to adjust the shape of the bridge, tip, or nostrils. The procedure can also be used to correct breathing abnormalities that arise due to problems with the internal structures of the nose. Dr. Pyo specializes in both open and closed approaches and will go over with you which approach would allow for the best result. Dr. Pyo also performs many rhinoplasties in patients with cleft lip and palate as their finishing touch procedure. If you would like to learn more about how rhinoplasty can give you a new appearance and a fresh outlook on life, please contact our office today.

Brow Lift

Frown lines on the forehead and creases above the nose can make you look tired, sad, angry, or even older than you truly are. These wrinkles are intensified by sun exposure, stress, heredity, and changes in weight. A brow lift allows Dr. Pyo to access the hard-to-reach muscles that cause furrow lines. By tightening and lifting forehead skin, you can eliminate these lines and achieve a more refreshed, youthful appearance.

This can be performed in several different ways, from the traditional open approach, to the endoscopic approach using a video camera, to a transblepharoplasty approach performed in conjunction with upper eyelid surgery. Please contact Dr. Pyo to discuss whether a brow lift is the right procedure for you.

Cheek/chin augmentation

Chin augmentation is done to balance a face with a recessive chin. While it can be done by cutting and repositioning the bone, most often, a synthetic implant is put in through a small incision. Many implants wrap around the chin and you can find several styles and sizes. Sometimes, specialized implants are used to fill out defects from aging. Cheek augmentation is growing in popularity. Full or high cheekbones frame the eyes and reduce changes of aging.

Implants are put in and sometimes combined with fat-grafting, inserting them through an incision in the mouth. It takes a few weeks for the patient to heal and if they ever change their mind or have a problem, the implants can be removed.

Lip augmentation

Many people choose to get lip augmentation done to have fuller lips as well as perk up corners that droop as you age. It also helps to re-shape the Cupid’s Bow as that can flatten out as you age. There are injectable, implant, and laser augmentations available. Injection options include collagen used to enhance the natural silhouette of the top of your upper lip and fill in vertical line wrinkles. Fat can also be transferred to plump up lips. Implants replace aged or inadequate lip tissue and rejuvenate the wrinkled lip. Finally, laser procedures rejuvenate wrinkled or aged lips by tightening the collagen and elastic tissue.

Sculptra Facial Volume Restoration

Sculptra restores your youthful appearance with natural-looking and long-lasting results! There are many options when it comes to reducing the visible signs of aging — but there is nothing quite like Sculptra. Referred to by some physicians as a “Face lift in a bottle”, Sculptra represents a new and unique non-invasive option that helps facial skin naturally regain a more youthful and natural-looking appearance.

What is Sculptra? 
Derived from fruit acids, Sculptra is a biocompatible and biodegradable injectable material known as poly-L-lactic acid that naturally stimulates the body to produce its own collagen.
 The result is a fuller, smoother, more youthful and natural-looking face with less pronounced lines, creases, wrinkles and folds. Unlike traditional treatments Sculptra results can last up to 2 years or longer. Sculptra is an FDA approved filler designed specifically for facial volume restoration. It is also quite effective for volumization of the hands as well.

Skin resurfacing

Skin resurfacing is an abrasive process that creates a controlled injury to your skin so it can heal with good scar tissue. We will consult with you to point out areas that you would like to see improved. This treatment can fix sun damaged skin, vertical wrinkles around your mouth, crow’s feet, upper eyelid wrinkles, brown spots or blotches, precancerous growths, acne scars, and other scars from a past injury. Different techniques include chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser resurfacing.
