Skinworks: The Art of Beautiful Medicine

The Power of Combination Therapy

Cosmetic enhancement procedures are constantly evolving. In recent years, a paradigm shift has occurred in our approach to cosmetic rejuvenation. Instead of looking at the face in sections, we now view the face in its entirety to create more balanced, naturally beautiful results.

An aging face is more complex than lines and wrinkles; it involves a combination of several changes in skin quality, texture and health. Through aging, our facial structure degenerates, deflates and descends as we lose fat, muscle and bone density. This results in loose skin and lost volume as the natural support structures that keep our skin smooth and firm are slowly depleted. In addition, sun damage incurred through years of unprotected ultraviolet exposure eventually present as brown spots, redness (rosacea) and skin cancer.

Quite often, achieving your desired outcome involves a combination of treatments. For instance, Dr. Jang often complements skin resurfacing procedures with Botox to smooth facial expressions and dermal fillers to re-volumize lines that are too deep for laser correction. Soft Lift™ is a recently developed combination therapy that uses Botox and Juvéderm dermal filler to restore facial balance and create a refreshed appearance.

Plastic surgery procedures can also be combined with skin treatments such as Fraxel to enhance outcomes. Many facelift patients choose to have a chemical peel on their surgery day to improve their facial tone and texture.

There are a number of procedures that can be combined to enhance your results. As experts in their fields, and with over 40 years of combined experience, Dr. Jang and Dr. Carr will design a customized treatment plan with the most effective combination of treatments to safely achieve your desired outcome.
