Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation – a General Guide

Are you ready for a new view when you look in the mirror?

You may be considering cosmetic surgery but now there are plenty of procedures that can transform your face without surgery to restore a more youthful appearance. These procedures are less risky and you wont have to worry about long recovery times.

Your face is one of your most important features, but time often delivers wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines as a sign of aging. Luckily, non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments for men and women are more numerous and more effective than ever before.

Advantages of non-surgical face rejuvenation

Let’s look at why you may want to consider non-surgical facial rejuvenation options to achieve that sought-after healthy and rested appearance. Not only will it make you feel more youthful, you’ll also feel pampered during your session at the clinic. Facial rejuvenation options are customizable, safe and require low commitment.

Various techniques can be used in combination to meet your needs. You can feel confident that you’ll find the treatment that will work best for you. Several new lasers are able to smooth fine lines and reduce pigmentation and redness. Many types of fillers minimize deeper wrinkles.

Setting aside the time needed to recover from a facelift can be difficult for people with busy schedules. With minimal downtime after a non-surgical facial procedure, it can be a more viable option. The procedure can be completed in just a few minutes – and the results appear in just a few days.

Most of the treatments are temporary, lasting several months before maintenance treatment is needed.

What type of treatments are available?

Here are a few non-surgical facial rejuvenation options:

BOTOX®:  Are smile lines and wrinkles keeping you from feeling your best?  BOTOX® can safely and temporarily restore a youthful appearance by eliminating fine lines, creases, and crow’s feet. It’s also commonly used to help forehead wrinkles. BOTOX®  is injected with a fine needle into affected muscles and will take a few days to show it’s full effect.

Chemical and Laser Peels: Hoping to improve the skin on your neck, chest, hands, legs or arms?  Chemical and laser peels “peel away” damaged top layers of skin to reveal smoother, youthful skin. They can also improve wrinkles, mild scarring, sun spots, freckles and age spots.

With chemical peels, a chemical solution is added to small areas of the skin that causes it to peel off, revealing your healthy youthful skin. With laser peels, heat energy causes a controlled burn to the top layers of skin allowing the skin to regenerate. Patients experience a warm sensation during the treatment and may have a “sunburned feeling” for a few hours following treatment.

Fillers:  A filler is used for volume replacement and restoration. It “fills” the space underneath a wrinkle to smooth it out with the surrounding skin. Fillers such as Juvederm can be injected under a wrinkle and in a matter of minutes, facial lines will be smoother and natural looking. Fillers can also be used to restore volume to various areas of the face that has been lost during the aging process.

It’s common for patients to try out injectables and fillers as part of a regular anti-aging regimen for a few years and then move forward with surgery.
