Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures

In the aesthetic world, there is a quest for ageless beauty that has evolved beyond surgical intervention. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures have become popular anti-aging options for individuals looking for an alternative to going under the knife. There are numerous innovative techniques that reshape the anti-aging landscape.

Dermal Fillers: Sculpting a Youthful Appearance

Dermal Fillers contain a synthetic ingredient, such as hyaluronic acid, that mimic natural components of your body to support dermal structure. In turn this support smooths facial lines and replenishes lost volume, sometimes associated with asymmetry as well. Overall, dermal fillers can reduce early signs of aging. Benefits of dermal fillers include increased lip volume, correcting minor asymmetry, minimizing facial creases and wrinkles, and filling out hollowing in the midface.

Botox: Smoothing Away the Years

The use of Botulinum Toxin, or Botox, has increased popularity over the years for its ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles non-surgically. From a scientific perspective, Botox is injected into muscles to block chemical signals from nerves which normally would cause them to contract. The blocking of that contraction physically does not allow those muscles to move. In turn, you get facial skin that appears flatter, smoother, and more youthful. Benefits of Botox include quick treatments, no downtime post procedure, preliminary improvements with full results about two weeks post procedure, and full effects last a few months before touch ups are needed.

Laser Therapy: Harnessing the Power of Light

Advancements in laser therapy have paved the way for innovative skin rejuvenation treatments. There are numerous types of lasers which accomplish different goals such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and fine lines. An intense pule light (IPL) typically addresses brown spots, redness, or broken blood vessels. A more intense laser treatment such as the CO2 laser can address more concerns such as significant sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of skin elasticity. Overall, laser treatments will leave your skin looking more vibrant and energetic.
