facelift PolandAcne scars are hard to treat and as we age, acne scars often become more and more noticeable because of the fact that our skin keeps losing collagen and thus flexibility. Nowadays on market, there is a wide variety of effective treatments., but the key to success is proper selection of the best treatment for the particular scar. Patient with some deep scars may benefit from getting a filler injected like botox, or will benefit from a facelift procedure as well. Dermabrasion or laser treatment may improve the healing of scars, too. Facelift surgery in Poland is one of the most effective methods, but in some cases, surgery will not eliminate acne scars permanently. The surgery which removes facial excess skin may help with acne scars since the skin is stretched and as a result scars appear smoother. For a patient with deep acne scars and loose skin, facelift surgery combined with a following CO2 laser therapy are recommended.

Some surgeons claim that the best age to undergo a facelift procedure starts from 48 to 55 years, as the skin usually is adequately elastic. On the other hand, all surgeons agree that the time of the first facelift surgery is not only based on patient’s chronological age, but should be based on the individual patient’s case and his need, influenced by genes, lifestyle and the experienced already diseases.
