Dr. Lo offers a facelift procedure with a shorter surgical time than the traditional face and neck lift. Candidates are those with sagging facial skin who feel they look older than they are. A facelift tightens the sagging skin of the lower face and neck, while also lifting the underlying muscle and tissue. An incision is made around the front of the ear and back to the hairline. Underlying tissues and muscles are repositioned and the skin is lifted, with excess skin trimmed away. The incision is concealed in the natural contours of the face. Recovery time is approximately 7-10 days.
This minimally invasive procedure transfers a small amount of the body’s fat to areas of the face that have lost volume. Injecting fat creates a natural look. Swelling and bruising may last for up to 2 weeks. The results of fat augmentation often last for years.
About Faces Cosmetic Surgery is the only practice in Tucson offering the exciting new technology of Renuvion® J-Plasma, the revolutionary procedure to combat signs of aging.

This ground-breaking technique can reduce wrinkles and is especially popular among those who have had a facelift and would like an occasional touchup.
Laser skin resurfacing can be highly effective in softening wrinkles and pigmentation issues around the chin. Pulses of light remove thin layers of damaged skin, while stimulating collagen production in the skin beneath. The new collagen plumps and tightens the skin, softening the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The procedure is usually done when treating the full face or around the mouth. New skin will grow and cover the treated area in about a week.
These muscle relaxers are excellent in decreasing wrinkles caused by muscle activity. The usual places to treat are around the eyes, on the forehead, and between the brows. Other areas, like the lower face or the lips and chin, require a very experienced injector like Dr. Lo. He is one of the most experienced injectors in Tucson, having injected Botox for over 24 years.
This minimally invasive treatment requires no downtime and is used to rejuvenate the skin by stimulating collagen production. It is used to help decrease fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of acne or surgical scars.
