Do you want to shed a few years off your face or remove unwanted acne or scars? Thanks to advancements in cosmetic treatments, it’s no longer necessary to go under the knife to achieve an ageless look. While removing excess skin will always be through plastic surgery procedures, you can look to other non-invasive measures before booking an appointment for that surgery.
What is Non-Invasive Facial Rejuvenation?
Non-invasive facial rejuvenation is a type of cosmetic treatment that can restore a person’s face to a more youthful appearance through non-surgical methods.
You can undergo several procedures to get the face you want without going under the knife. There are many non-invasive, quick, and affordable alternatives to plastic surgery. Outlined here are just a few of our most popular procedures.
For a non-surgical facelift, you could consider either a liquid facelift or PRP Facelift as your first option to rejuvenate your face’s overall appearance. Either option will give you a facelift everyone will notice, but no one will think you’ve had “work” done.
A liquid facelift is specifically tailored to your exact preferences using non-invasive medically prescribed dermal fillers. The end goal is to soften and even eliminate unwanted wrinkles, facial creases, and age lines. With a precise mix of dermal fillers such as JUVEDERM® and Restylane®, as well as neuromodulators like BOTOX®, you will take on a younger, rejuvenated appearance.
A PRP Facelift is a non-invasive and safe rejuvenation treatment that uses blood plasma from your own body to rejuvenate the skin. Sometimes referred to as a “vampire facelift,” the PRP facelift is a minimally invasive procedure wherein the plasma is enriched with platelets – blood cells that promote faster healing with less bruising or swelling.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Another non-invasive alternative to getting a more youthful, fuller look is laser skin resurfacing. Here, layers of skin damaged by the sun, acne, and the wear and tear of aging are removed.
Fraxel Laser, recognized as one of the most popular skin resurfacing tools, is designed to penetrate the thickest layer of the skin known as the dermis. Without burning or damaging the skin and applying gentle heat, this medical laser selectively dissolves aged and damaged cells affected by hyperpigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, or acne scarring.
While the medical procedure doesn’t take much time, recovery can take up to two weeks. The skin may appear bronzed and darkened as the dead cells start to flake off, leaving behind a layer of younger, healthier skin. Patients can also expect a mild sunburn look for three to four days.
While the outer surface of our skin sheds naturally, this doesn’t happen evenly. The result is uneven skin tone and texture, discoloration, and dryness. Chemical Peels loosen and remove dead skin cells, allowing healthier skin to grow back and be visible on the surface while also stimulating collagen growth to achieve a more youthful, healthier skin complexion.
Chemical peels can be performed alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures and applied at different depths, from light to deep. Light peels are perfect for exfoliating and unclogging pores as well as for increasing new skin production.
