If you’ve been wanting to do something about the fine lines and wrinkles on your face but aren’t yet ready to go under the knife to improve your appearance, the great news is there are a variety of non-surgical treatment options. Here we break down some of the most popular treatments for patients.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser technology has come a long way and procedures can be tailored to your specific skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, keratosis, sun damage and pigment irregularities. A Lunchtime Laser Peel can be described as microdermabrasion but at a stronger depth. 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.
Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers
Injectables are popular non-surgical treatments that are popular with patients because they provide quick results with little or no downtime. Botox® is an FDA-approved injection treatment that smooths lines wrinkles in the upper part of the face that are caused by frequent contraction of muscles when you frown or squint. It also targets forehead lines, vertical lines between the eyebrows called the “11 lines,” and crow’s feet around the eyes for a smoother look with results that last up to four months. One of the most popular dermal fillers, Juvederm® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that lifts and adds volume to the wrinkles and folds of your skin. It works best in the skin around the mouth and nose, with results last can last up to a year.
Microdermabrasion & Chemical Peels
Microdermabrasion is a facial rejuvenation method that uses a handheld device to gently exfoliate the skin and suction away the outermost layer of dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion can be used on all skin tones and types to treat uneven skin tone and texture, age spots and an overall dull complexion. PCA peels consist of professionally applied peel solutions that exfoliate dead skin cells to help healthy skin cells rise to the surface. These chemical peels can even skin tone, clear acne, improve the appearance of aging skin and brighten a dull complexion.
Aging, genetics and environmental factors play a role in the appearance of skin and the lines and wrinkles that form as we age, but thankfully there are numerous treatment options.
