Repair Sun Damage and Get Holiday Ready This Fall

Now is the time to plan your skin care for Fall and Winter, and to decide what improvements you want to make to your skin over the next few months. 

Repair Sun Damage

Now is the time to repair sun damage including lighten age spots, to soften rough skin, and reverse some of the wear and tear that your skin takes during the summer.

Here are our favorite ways to repair your damaged skin:

Exfoliate for smooth and attractive skin

Exfoliation helps smooth away rough skin. We love ZO SkinHealth’s Exfoliating Polish which was named one of the 6 Best Face Scrubs to Exfoliate Your Way to Smooth Skin – Good Housekeeping Institute Beauty Lab. Email us to place your order.

Rehydrate and repair your lips

Summer months are hard on your lips and often leave us feeling dehydrated. Rehydrate your lips with our favorite topical filler, HA5, and consider fillers like Juvederm to repair the overall appearance. 

As a plastic surgeon who understands the complete anatomy of the facial structure, Dr. Core is an injectables expert and was voted Best Surgeon Injector. To schedule your appointment with Dr. Core, call us at (205) 397-2100

Fall is the perfect time for facelifts and other facial procedures

The Fall is also a perfect time for facelifts or other facial procedures since you have a 2-3 month window to recover before holiday festivities begin. If you have been contemplating moving forward with your plans to have a facelift, now is the best time to start the process with our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Core.

The skin on our faces may sag or lose elasticity as we age or lose a significant amount of weight. For those wanting to restore a younger appearance, a facelift might be right for you.

Plastic surgeons perform facelifts on people who have lost elasticity in their faces and have begun to show significant signs of aging. The skin on the face is pulled slightly tighter to make it smoother, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, lines and sagging skin.

Although the changes appear gradually, there may come a day when you look in the mirror and decide that the face you see doesn’t reflect the way you feel about yourself. If you’d like to look as good as you feel, a facelift smoothes the loose skin on your face and neck, tightens underlying tissues and removes excess fat.

As a result, your face will appear firmer and fresher.

What type of facelift do I need?

The facelift or mini facelift procedure is customized to the anatomical features and desired results of the patient. Dr. Core specializes in a variety of techniques to help his patients end up with a result they are happy with!

Curious if the facelift is right for you?

Facelifts are most commonly performed on patients in the 40 to 60 age range. However, the procedure can produce good results in people in their 60s, 70s, and 80s as well.

You may be a good candidate for a facelift if you have one or more of the following conditions:

  • Loss of a well-defined jawline
  • Deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging skin near the cheekbones
  • Loose skin, wrinkles or excess fatty tissue in the neck
  • A deep line that runs from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth
