Rejuvenate Your Face

Do you want brighter, clearer, younger-looking skin without having to go under the knife? If so, there are several ways you can achieve the skin you dream of without invasive procedures or general anesthesia. Here are some of the leading methods noninvasive methods for tightening, brightening, and looking younger.

Botox

Botox is one of the most popular nonsurgical options provided by plastic surgeons today. Its purpose is to relax the muscles in the face that commonly create expression lines like crow’s feet, laugh lines, frown lines, and more. They’re considered neurotoxins, but they’re developed safely in laboratories and come with very little risk. The best part? The treatment takes only a few minutes, and there’s little to no recovery time afterward. For some, Botox can improve the appearance for up to six months between treatments.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a little more involved than Botox injections, but they’re quite powerful and popular when it comes to facial rejuvenation. Chemical peels are chosen by those who want to minimize the appearance of age spots and sun damage, who want to tighten skin that has become crepey with age, and to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. A chemical peel takes a bit longer than Botox injections, and there’s some redness afterward that will fade in a few days’ time.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is the best option for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of prominent scar tissue on the face and neck. These treatments are highly beneficial in this regard, but they can be used for other imperfections, as well. Laser resurfacing is a great choice for smoothing wrinkles and folds in the skin, rejuvenating sagging skin, reducing the appearance of sun and age spots, and even tightening the skin around the neck to provide a more youthful appearance.

Dermal Fillers

As you age, your skin starts to lose the ability to produce collagen, which gives it its firm, plump appearance. Once the collagen starts to disappear, your skin may begin to sag, wrinkle, or fold. Dermal fillers can help reverse these effects, and in some cases, they may even prevent them. They’re best for restoring and enhancing the fullness of various areas of the face, reducing the appearance of certain types of wrinkles, and restoring youthfulness.

Kybella  

Finally, Kybella is one of the newer facial rejuvenation options on the market, and it’s one of the most powerful noninvasive procedures available. Kybella melts fat at the injection site, which can help recontour and reshape the face when administered by an experienced plastic surgeon. It’s usually used for the reduction of a double chin, though it does have other uses on a case-by-case basis. In the US, it’s only approved for the chin area, but in parts of Europe, Kybella is being used on the elbows, knees, and abdomen to reduce pockets of fat.

If you want rejuvenated skin, surgery isn’t the only option. There are many different treatments that can provide outstanding results without the same price tag or recovery time. To learn more, and to decide whether noninvasive procedures are a good choice for your unique needs, contact your trusted plastic surgeon for a consultation.
