Dr. Andrew Hendricks is renowned for his skill at performing a wide variety of procedures that are both cosmetic and functional in nature. No matter what your concern is, Dr. Hendricks stands ready to help you enhance the appearance and function of your face and skin.
As the largest organ of the body, your skin is both a very prominent part of your appearance and a reliable indicator of your overall health. Skin problems like scars, wrinkles, blemishes and sagging skin can have a negative impact on your appearance and sense of well-being. Few people have perfect skin, and most would like to correct their skin problems to enhance their appearance.
Cosmetic surgery is an option for many people, while others would prefer a non-surgical choice that does not require as much downtime. Fortunately, there are more choices available today than ever before to enhance the appearance of your face and skin.
Commonly known as a nose job, rhinoplasty is a very common surgical procedure used to correct the function or appearance of the nose.
Some patients have nasal passages that are damaged or deformed and require a surgical procedure to ensure they are able to breathe properly. Others are unhappy with the aesthetic appearance of their nose due to its size or shape. No matter the reason why, rhinoplasty can correct either the function or perceived appearance of the nose.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are substances Dr. Andrew Hendricks or a member of our professional team can inject into your face to restore lost facial volume due to the aging process or dramatic weight loss. Losing facial volume or developing thinner facial skin can lead to hollow areas under the eyes or around the cheek area. The resulting sagging skin also leads to the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Products like Restylane® and Juvederm® contain hyaluronic acid, which naturally adds volume to your skin by moisturizing it internally. This unique substance absorbs an incredible amount of water, which helps plump your skin cells and volumize your face.
By injecting a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid, we are reversing this process. The result is thicker skin that is more hydrated and shows fewer signs of lines and wrinkles.
You may be familiar with skin exfoliation. A medical-grade chemical peel works using the same principle. We remove a portion of the outer skin layer, which reveals new skin underneath. Once this new skin fully develops, it replaces the old skin and makes your skin appear more youthful and radiant.
Superficial peels are helpful for minimizing fine lines, wrinkles and minor scars. Medium peels work a little deeper and are for moderate scars, lines and wrinkles. Deep peels are for more serious wrinkles and scars. Once the recovery period is over, most patients are extremely satisfied with the dramatic results that deep peels offer.
