Facial Rejuvenation Techniques
Hogue Clinics offers the following treatments performed by cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Hogue, for your facial rejuvenation needs:
AUTOLOGOUS FAT GRAFTING
At Hogue Clinics, we use sophisticated autologous fat grafting techniques, combined with PRP regenerative agents, to optimize 3-dimensional volume correction, facial sculpting, and tissue regeneration of the aging face. Fat is harvested from body surplus areas such as the torso or thighs using local anesthesia and a tiny fat harvesting cannula that aspirates 1-mm diameter fat aspirate particles felt to be optimal for the best fat grafting clinical outcome. Whether you are in need of volume restoration of your depleted facial fat pads around your eyes, temples, malar cheeks, nasolabial folds, lower face, or jowls, our successful fat grafting technique are optimized for your success.
SKIN TIGHTENING WITH RF AND/OR LASER
Transdermal skin tightening with Radiofrequency (RF) and/or laser both represent thermal-based modalities designed to use heat to shrink the skin and its dermal components to cause the skin to effectively tighten. The choice of which modality to use, whether RF and/or laser, depends on such factors as skin tone (melanin content), skin thickness, degree of skin damage and wrinkling, along with surgeon’s recommendation and patient’s choice. In general, RF and laser skin resurfacing and skin tightening potentially have several days to several weeks of downtime for the patient. These treatments are performed using local anesthesia while awake in an outpatient office-based setting. The combined use of PRP with its growth factors, cytokines, and peptides, performed immediately after an RF or laser skin tightening treatment, provides tissue regenerative effects resulting in improved treatment outcomes and shortened downtime.
WRINKLE CORRECTION WITH BOTULINUM TOXIN-A (XEOMIN®)
At Hogue Clinics, we use the FDA-cleared Botulinum Toxin-A injectable agent called Xeomin®. Dynamic wrinkles of expression are lessened and improved with the neurotoxin Xeomin®, which limits targeted wrinkle-causing facial muscle contractions often caused by frowning or squinting. Xeomin® injections are minimally painful with no down time, usually taking only fifteen minutes per injection session. Wrinkle correction results usually last 3 months or more and does require retreatment at 3- to 4-month intervals to maintain clinical wrinkle correction results.
FAT REMOVAL & FACIAL SCULPTING WITH LASER LIPOSUCTION
Laser liposuction of the jawline, jowls, under chin, and neck, is a precision facial sculpting technique pioneered and performed by cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Hogue, that tightens lax skin and removes fatty deposits from facial areas that create the false appearance of a double chin or excessive jowls or distorts the overall facial shape or appearance. Dr. Hogue’s artistry, experience, and innovation regarding laser liposuction of the face, under chin, neck consistently delivers world-class results for his patients. The laser liposuction treatment is performed using the Hogue Surgical Endless Fiber, an FDA-cleared surgical laser fiber device invented and patented by Dr. Hogue. Targeted fat areas treated with laser liposuction are permanently transformed from “nutrient-rich” to “nutrient-poor”. Fatty deposits are permanently removed by liposuction as the face, under chin, and neck are precision sculpted. Laser heating of the skin and its connective tissue components lead to significant skin and tissue tightening. Clinical results following laser liposuction are expected to be long term due to transformation of the fat space.

A list of conditions treated at Hogue Clinics using effective, innovative facial rejuvenationtreatments include the following:
- Depletion of facial fat pads with visible facial shape changes, 3-dimensional facial volume loss, and the appearance of facial aging
- Skin laxity, looseness, sagging with prominent skin folds and wrinkles
- Skin tone and texture abnormalities, blemishes, sun spots, age spots, pigmentary changes
- Facial scars, depressions, divots, and rough-textured skin surface appearance
- Accumulation of fat in the lower face, jowls, jawline, under chin, and neck
Facial volume loss, particularly depletion of facial fat pads, is a major contributor to facial aging. This phenomenon affects most all of us throughout our forties to seventies, sometimes earlier. Facial volume correction may be performed using autologous fat grafting or synthetic dermal fillers. The merits of each is best contemplated during a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon experienced with performing a vast array of facial rejuvenation treatments.
Skin laxity is a primary factor in the development of facial aging. Skin laxity and skin elasticity give skin its ability to retain a smooth texture and hold a taut, lifted profile. Skin elasticity will naturally vary from individual to individual, often influenced by heredity and genetics, but exposure to the sun and UV radiation, smoking, and stress may speed the degradation of skin elasticity. Loose skin results in sagging, deepening of wrinkles and sunken areas on the face. Ultimately, there is little control or influence you can exert over this phenomenon through dieting or exercise. Facial rejuvenation treatments which focus on volume replacement, skin tightening, and skin regeneration represent the most proven, long-term remedy for turning back the hands of time on facial aging.
The degenerative tissue effects experienced with facial aging include loss of collagen, loss of elastin, thinning skin, and atrophic effects involving facial tissues such as skin, fat, muscle, and bone. Regenerative treatments which regenerative the cells and tissues comprising the face represent a back-door treatment approach for facial aging. Autologous bio-cellular agents such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and fat aspirate concentrate (FAC), enriched with growth factors, cytokines, peptides, and a vast array of regenerative cell populations including mesenchymal stem cells, arguably hold the best chance for turning back the hands of time with respect to facial aging and facial rejuvenation.
