Without professional guidance, it’s often difficult to know where to start to achieve healthy, beautiful skin. At Jeffrey C Dawes MD, Plastic Surgery, Rejuvanalysis™ begins with a detailed skin history and analysis performed by our experienced skin care professionals. Through consultation, we can evaluate the status of your skin and determine the most appropriate products, treatments and lifestyle considerations that will optimize your skin’s appearance and overall health.
Rejuvanalysis™ was developed by Dr. Dawes as a scientific, comprehensive and longitudinal consultation to help and provide individuals with lifelong solutions for facial aging. This evaluation is not limited to non-invasive procedures alone, but includes all available options on a continuum of increasing
The ‘analysis’ portion of your Rejuvanalysis™ consultation is grounded in the principles of BeautiPHIcation™ – a revolutionary approach to non-surgical facial enhancement developed by Dr. Arthur Swift and Dr. Kent Remington. BeautiPHIcation™ utilizes Leonardo Da Vinci’s mathematical principle of beauty and harmony through “divine” proportion. It represents a medical application of the idea that true beauty is a universal law, using the mathematical concept of “phi” - the Golden Ratio of 1:1.618 that is abundant both in nature as well as ancient architecture.
A specialized caliper, similar to the one used by Da Vinci himself, is used to help enhance features and restore contours in a way that is precise and helps to restore or create facial symmetry, harmony and balance.
Your comprehensive consultation will include a skin assessment using the VISIA™ Complexion Analysis photography system. The VISIA™ system uses multi-spectral imaging and computer analysis to provide a clear multi-dimensional snap-shot of your skin, capturing key visual information for six areas affecting health and appearance:
The VISIA™ system further provides an informative comparison of your complexion characteristics as compared to other women of similar age and ethnicity. The resulting information assists our skin care experts in designing an individualized skin health program including a home skin care program, skin rejuvenation treatments and lifestyle choices best suited to your skin. Analysis reports and photographs are kept on file to allow us to monitor your progress.
Facial aging is a process involving three main factors. These include the wrinkling skin, vertical descent of the facial tissue and volume shifts of facial fat and underlying structural support. Every patient is different and single approach to facial aging is impractical, if not impossible. One patient, for example, may only require neuromodulators and dermal fillers to address their concerns, while another may require laser skin resurfacing to help address wrinkles with a customized skin care regime. Others still, may be beyond what dermal fillers can reasonably achieve and find themselves in need of a facelift +/- fat transfer instead of or in addition to the above solutions. Regardless of a patients needs, detailed records along with photographs are kept to allow for serial evaluation over months and years. This provides Dr. Dawes with longitudinal information to help him to change your facial aging management plan as you age - to help you to continue to achieve the most Beautiful. Natural. You. Always.
You will receive recovery information and post-care instructions based on your treatment, including a personalized home care regimen (a ‘recovery kit’) designed to help protect and sustain your skin rejuvenation results for as long as possible. Avoiding sun exposure and using a mineral-based sunscreen is essential. Results vary by treatment type, but are usually immediate and long lasting; several treatments may be required to achieve desired results.
