There is an array of non-surgical procedures that can rejuvenate your skin and help you erase years from your face. These treatments are more subtle and temporary in some cases but offer a much shorter recovery time than a facelift, which makes them appealing. Here are some of the more popular treatments to consider.
Laser technology can address a wide variety of skin concerns, and there are a lot of different laser treatments available. Laser treatment targets specific types of cells in the layers of the skin to improves tone, texture, fine lines, deeper wrinkles and the appearance of scars and more. You will need a series of treatments for optimal results. Downtime depends on the laser treatment used, but range from no downtime to two weeks.
The laser beam removes a thin layer of skin in the treatment area, triggering the body’s healing process. As the skin heals, new cells grow and resurface the treatment area, resulting in healthier-looking skin, reduced wrinkled and improved vibrancy.
Botox® and Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers have been growing in popularity as an effective option to restore a youthful appearance without going under the knife. Dermal fillers add youthful volume, lift and enhance the shape of the face, improve the appearance of scars and smooth out wrinkles – all with little to no downtime. They can improve a sunken appearance around the temples, restore brow height, smooth out the skin around the mouth and nose, improve jowls for a more youthful jawline and help you achieve fuller lips.
Dermal fillers can be combined with Botox® for a Soft Lift™, tailored to your needs for optimal results. Botox® is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures. When injected under the skin, it paralyzes muscles to temporarily prevent them from contracting. It targets and smooths wrinkles in the upper part of the face caused by the contraction of muscles from frowning or squinting, the vertical “11 lines” between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes. The injections take minutes, and the results last for about 3-6 months.
A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to rejuvenate skin tone and texture on the face, neck and even the back of hands. A chemical solution is placed on the treatment area, removing the damaged outer skin layers and helping healthy skin cells to rise to the surface. It can treat a variety of skin concerns, including acne, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, rough texture and congested skin. The procedure takes less than an hour, and you will have a series of repeat treatments for optimal results.
