Facial aging shows up fast. Your face starts showing the signs of your age faster than most other body parts. This is mostly due to environmental factors like exposure to UV light and sunlight, stress, and decreased production of natural oils–which can dry up your skin and reduce its elasticity.
Fortunately, DeLuca Plastic Surgery offers a number of convenient procedures to help reduce facial aging, including lower face and necklift, upper lid blepharoplasty, CO2 CoolPeel Resurfacing, and IPL photo facial.
These procedures can not only help you look revitalized and refreshed but they can peel back the signs of aging to help you look younger, and tighter, helping you restore your confidence.
Let’s take a look at some of the most popular procedures focused on facial aging offered here at DeLuca Plastic Surgery, as well as how they can help you achieve the look you desire.
Lower Facelift and Necklift
Your jawline is one of the first parts of your face to show signs of aging. Not only do lines and wrinkles show up with more prominence, but your jawline in general loses its definition. If that’s not enough, fat and tissue build up, creating loose skin and jowls.
A lower facelift and necklift focuses on the lower half of your face and jawline, naturally elevating the deep tissues of the face – reversing the effects of gravity, and targeting sagging skin and wrinkles and tightening lax skin, double chin, and more. More importantly, it’s not meant to simply reduce wrinkles–it helps restructure your facial features for an attractive, confident appearance.
At DeLuca Plastic Surgery we use cutting-edge techniques to be able to perform this surgery in the office under local anesthesia as part of our “Wide Awake Surgery” experience. Patients feel no pain except the brief pinch and sting from the numbing medicine.
After your procedure, most patients show little to know signs of having a procedure performed. After a couple days, you may see some yellowing on your neck or chest–caused by gravity pulling excess blood and bruising downwards and minor swelling of the neck and upper face. These side effects will subside within 1-2 weeks.
There are a number of different facelift and necklift procedures available, and not every procedure is the same for every patient. Only you and your surgeon can develop a plan that works for your unique needs.

Upper Lid Blepharoplasty
Your eyes are another focal point that reveals the signs of aging more prominently. Baggy, droopy eyelids, excess skin, and loose skin around the eyes is caused by a loss of tissue as you age, and can cause you to look older, more tired, and even less attractive. After all, most people look at–if not notice–your eyes first when they look at you.
An upper lid blepharoplasty focuses on tightening the upper eyelid, removing excess skin and sagging for a more youthful, replenished appearance. This surgery is most often performed in the office under a local anesthetic. Nearly pain-free, this technique allows interaction with the surgeon during the procedure that is not available in the OR – ensuring an optimal result.
After the procedure, most patients experience mild bruising or swelling around the eyes, which can last for around 1-2 weeks. Most patients can expect to see a full recovery within 1-2 months.

CO2 CoolPeel Resurfacing
Too much time in the sun can leave your skin dried out, loose, and damaged. While procedures like laser resurfacing can refresh the skin, many patients have been looking for a non-invasive solution with less downtime and a shorter recovery.
The answer is here: CO2 CoolPeel Resurfacing.
CO2 CoolPeel Resurfacing is a new way to rejuvenate your skin by leveraging the body’s healing process to stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin–giving your skin the revitalized look and feel you’ve been looking for.
The procedure works by vaporizing tissue in microscopic columns–targeting only certain skin sections, leaving healthy tissue “bridges” to speed up healing.
After the procedure, patients have a pink glow similar to a day in the sun and are free to return to their daily routines immediately. The CoolPeel REsurfacing targets the deeper tissues – avoiding the crusting and open wounds of traditional peels and CO2 laser resurfacing.
Ove the course of several treatments, the result is a tighter, more youthful appearance with virtually no downtime!
CO2 CoolPeel Resurfacing is becoming more and more popular as patients rave about virtually no downtime and the stellar, revitalizing results.

IPL Photo Facial
It’s not only your skin, but your complexion that takes a beating. Aging, makeup products, pollution, stress, and UV rays all contribute to the complexion in your skin breaking down and losing that youthful, tight glow.
An Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo Facial is a Swiss-army knife for skin and facial aging issues, helping tackle everything from age spots to sun damage.
It works by using short blasts of high-intensity light to target poor coloration and redness of the skin. Patients can expect a feeling similar to a sunburn right after the procedure with crusting of pigmented lesions over the course of several days as the skin heals.
Overall, the procedure involves little to no recovery time and no surgery.
If you’re looking for a quick, easy way to rejuvenate your skin and reverse the effects of sun damage and aging, look no further than IPL Photo Facials.
