Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Procedures:
If you were to talk to ten different people, they might give you ten different viewpoints on what facial rejuvenation is. It can refer to non-invasive “lunchtime” treatments or to very invasive cosmetic surgery. But in all cases, the ultimate goal is to improve facial imperfections and the overall facial appearance. In the end, it may take a combination of several different procedures to achieve the desired results.
Walk down the aisle of any pharmacy retailer, and you’ll be overwhelmed at the choices available to you over the counter. It’s not your grandmother’s skincare. In fact, technology is advancing so rapidly, it’s not even your mother’s skincare anymore. With cleansers, exfoliators and moisturizers to handle every skincare issue for ages 20 and up, today’s treatments are highly effective at combating signs of aging.
Non-surgical facelift treatments – have changed dramatically to create a marked improvement in your skin’s texture, elasticity, and pigmentation.
Antioxidant therapy – a popular skin treatment, with vitamin C and Retin-A following closely behind as alternative ways to protect your skin, improve its appearance and ward off signs of aging skin.
Acne & Skin Disorders – There are a number of accepted and emerging treatments for these.
Skin Resurfacing – reduces or eliminates dry skin, freckling, large pores, fine lines, skin spots (hyperpigmentation), and broken capillaries and improves collagen production. Halo laser treatment, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion are among the most popular of these treatments. In addition, laser scar removal can help to reduce old scars.
Injectables and Facial Fillers – Such as Sculptra, Restylane, Juvederm, and fat transfers from other body areas. These work by filling in wrinkles and increasing volume in sunken or hollow areas of the face. Botox reduces wrinkles by ‘relaxing’ the muscles in the face and neck, such as the forehead, that habitually contract, so that the area appears smooth. Many of these products offer anti-aging benefits. Visit Fillers & Injectables for more information.
Peels - A peel stimulates the skin to renew itself. A slightly caustic solution is applied to the skin, which causes a burn like a sunburn. With a mild peel, it’s a mild burn which removes the surface layer of skin cells.
