As the years go by, time and gravity can take their toll on our faces and skin. If you’re looking to take a few years off your appearance, you may be wondering what your options are. Fortunately, there’s a huge variety of available solutions ranging from non-invasive laser treatments to full facelifts that can be targeted to your specific situation.
We’ve broken down some of our aging treatments, so you know what to discuss with your Morehead City and Jacksonville, North Carolina, plastic surgeon.
Surgical and Non-surgical Options for Reversing the Effects of Aging to Ask Your Plastic Surgeon About
If you’re looking for a quicker or less invasive solution to aging, you might prefer our non-surgical options. Nearly all of these procedures can be performed in our Morehead City or Jacksonville, North Carolina, office.
Carolinas Center for Plastic Surgery offers a variety of advanced laser treatment to help you look years younger. These procedures come with minimal discomfort and most patients return to regular activity immediately.
One of these options, the Icon™ System packages wrinkle treatment in with facial vein reduction and sun damage reversal in the innovative ThreeForMe™ laser treatment.
We also offer facial resurfacing options, like the SmartSkin Fractional CO2 Laser, which promotes the production of collagen and elastin, which tightens skin and smoothes out wrinkles.
If you’re more concerned with dark age spots, you can opt for the PicoSure® laser. PicoSure® breaks up the accumulated pigment that causes dark spots so it can be harmlessly absorbed by the body.
Dr. Klainer can help you decide which treatment or combination of treatments can help you.
People’s faces typically lose volume as they age, causing the skin to loosen. Our dermal filler options help restore volume and smooth specific parts of the face like the cheek, eyes, and mouth areas. Our dermal filler options include:

If you’re looking for more dramatic results, surgical solutions may be the better fit for you. Although our lasers and fillers do tighten skin enough to reduce wrinkles, eliminating sagging skin often requires a slightly more involved approach.
Most of these procedures need to be performed in a hospital setting and come with some downtime.
Facelift surgery offers long-lasting and dramatic results. During the procedure excess fat is removed and resculpted and the muscles and skin are tightened for a fresher, younger appearance.
Most patients need about a week to recover before they can return to regular activity. Although incisions will need to be made, they are well-hidden behind the ears and in the hairline.
Less invasive mini facelifts are also available.
More Focused Surgeries
Maybe you have one specific facial feature that ages you more than the rest of your face. This could be anything, including your neck, forehead, or eyelids. Targeted lifts are procedures that work like facelifts but tighten specific trouble areas.
