First Impressions: Are You Ready for the Mask to Come Off?

Psychology supports it: Looking good leads to feeling good. And feeling good leads to a sense of empowerment.

And when do you need that kind of confidence most? How about during the all-important first impression? How about during a pandemic?

Feeling good in general can be difficult right now, as our faces are concealed behind a mask for much of our days. But that won’t be the case forever.

Now is an ideal time to start planning for a brighter future — and visualizing your grand reveal. When masks come off, will you be ready?

Try on a fresh wardrobe, smile or face

In a modern world, we know that looking good on the outside makes us feel good on the inside.

Whether it’s getting dressed in the morning even when we’re working remotely, highlighting with some makeup, tidying with a fresh shave, or deciding on a long-term facial plastic surgery solution that will make our everyday routine even easier, there’s evidence what we showcase on the outside reflects how we feel — or strive to feel — on the inside.

You can try it with something as simple as a smile. Research has shown that simply turning up your mouth into a gentle smile can do wonders for your mental health. Essentially, you can trick your mind into pushing into a positive state by showing that in your outward expression.

Now imagine if you could apply that to a more permanent enhancement for your face. That’s what Dr. Brent Smith and the staff at Smith Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetic Center do for patients every day.

We provide mini facelifts, enhancements to those features you’ve always wanted to change, and even non-surgical solutions that make waking up and looking in the mirror a more inspiring way to face the day.

Our client feedback proves it. The overwhelming request we hear from people during the consultation is that they want their outer image to reflect the youthful energy they still feel inside.

Yet our bodies betray us in this regard. When our faces begin to show natural signs of aging, we are pre-judged as looking tired or even angry. Whether it’s uneven-aged skin, facial folds that cause our mouths to turn downward, or furrows between our brows, these can all make us appear sad or mad — or both.

And who wants that?

Lift your face, lift your life

Whether you opt for a full mini facelift to refresh your look from chin to brow, or you want to dip your toe in with a non-surgical procedure to see some speedy results, there are so many ways our exceptional doctor and staff can help you on a path that’s right for you.

We see it all the time: A simple procedure can lead to surprising and dramatic improvements in other areas of life.

For example, your new look could inspire confidence to speak up, take charge, and look people in the eye (even if on Zoom) in the work environment.

It might lead to a better first impression for those tricky post-divorce first dates or mid-career job interviews. Perhaps it even gives you a completely new perspective on life that leads to pursuing a long-demoted dream, relocation or career pivot.

Your experience following facial cosmetic surgery will be unique. But given our knowledge, we’d hedge a big bet that you will notice a healthy lifestyle shift after any procedure at Smith Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetic Center.

Remember, you’re in control. Don’t let others pre-judge you based on the appearance of your aging face. This is something you can change with an amazing combination of artistry, technology, and grace.

We have the tools to get you to a more natural-looking state, with the refinement of character that comes along with taking a leap of faith for empowerment.

New services now available

As fun as dreaming about a whole new you is, are the new services available at our advanced surgical suite and medical aesthetic facility in Denver. We’re now offering microneedling with PRP and IPL photo facials. You won’t believe the results these simple, in-patient procedures can deliver:

Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

What is it: With almost no downtime, this treatment helps you jumpstart or maintain your skincare goals.  SkinPen®, the first ever FDA-cleared microneedling device, is a non-invasive medical-grade treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, coarse skin texture, enlarged pores, and has proven successful in treating acne scarring.

How it works: Tiny needles deliver controlled “microtrauma” to the dermis to stimulate age-defying collagen. In addition, during the treatment, your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is spread over the skin and sinks deeper through newly opened microchannels.

As your skin heals, growth factors are released and a “remodeling” occurs, stimulating collagen and elastin. The result? Smoother, softer, more luminous skin. A series of three facial treatments spaced four to six weeks apart, are ideal for achieving maximum results.

Intense Pulsed Light Photo Facial (IPL) Photo Facial

What is it: Developed by the pioneers of aesthetic medicine, this FDA-cleared Lumenis® energy-based light treatment brings your skin back to a healthy, even tone with minimal to no downtime or discomfort. 

IPL photo facial works on the damaging effects of UV rays and environmental toxins, such as hyperpigmented age spots, sunspots, and broken blood vessels. It can even eliminate freckles, birthmarks, rosacea, and broken capillaries.

How it works: Lumenis® IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) uses customizable light pulses to penetrate facial tissue and create heat, targeting specific skin imperfections in a controlled manner. Your body’s natural process of “shedding” then removes the treated tissue.

As further collagen and elastin fiber stimulation occurs, you’ll see a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance. A series of treatments will be customized for your skin, but typically two to six sessions with two to four weeks in between produce great results for most skin concerns.
