Aesthetic Medicine Options for the Face

Facial appearance is one of the most crucially important factors in determining one’s overall aesthetic beauty. Regrettably, because of the fragile nature of facial skin and the consistently high level of facial exposure to damaging environmental elements (i.e. UV rays, pollution, wind), the face is also the first area on the body to display the unwelcome signs of aging.

At Fusion Medical Spa, located in Ruidoso, New Mexico, owner and Medical Director Dr. Stephen Rath employs his extensive experience and training in medical aesthetics to help his patients turn back the hands of time with a wide assortment of advanced facial rejuvenation treatment options.

The field of aesthetics is highly subjective, and your facial treatment should reflect your personal preferences, which is why Dr. Rath will take the time to perform a comprehensive medical assessment during your initial consultation. During this evaluation, Dr. Rath will listen carefully to your concerns while taking into consideration the condition of your skin and your current state of physical health. He will incorporate all of this information into a personalized treatment plan, which he will custom-tailor to safely and effectively fulfill your unique facial enhancement goals.

The Effects of Aging on the Face

Although no two individuals experience the aging process in exactly the same way, the visible manifestations of facial aging become intensified with each passing year, and generally include one or more of the following cosmetic issues:

  • Facial ptosis: loose or sagging skin on the face and neck
  • Thin, wrinkled lips resulting from a loss of volume in the lip region
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Skin discoloration/pigmentation problems
  • Telangiectasia: a widening of tiny blood vessels that present as red lines or patterns on the skin (this condition is exacerbated by age, pregnancy, and alcohol consumption)
  • Depleted facial volume: over time, as collagen and hyaluronic acid levels decrease, the face loses its youthfully supple fullness, and begins to take on a gaunt or hollow appearance
  • Increasing prominence of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the delicate skin of the eyes (crow’s feet) and mouth (marionette lines, deep nasolabial folds)
  • Sagging or drooping around the corners of the mouth

Dr. Rath understands that his patients lead very busy lives, which is why his practice philosophy focuses on providing effective countermeasures to facial aging that can be seamlessly integrated into even the busiest of schedules.
