A balanced, harmonious face is the ideal symbol of beauty, and long gone are the days of painful procedures to create a refreshed, youthful look. In today’s world of plastic surgery, there are numerous non-surgical options to achieve your desired appearance and meet beauty standards. Although many patients opt to correct facial flaws with invasive procedures like facelifts and rhinoplasty, some find that non-permanent and non-surgical options are a better fit.
As we navigate the daily stress of life, plus endure a loss of collagen and sun exposure, the face starts to show signs of aging faster than other parts of the body. Botox, microneedling, and chemical peels provide patients with the convenience of quick fixes to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Injectibles and fillers go a step further, contouring the face to create that desired balance and enhance the patient’s overall look.
Lines, wrinkles, and loose skin on the face reveal the signs of aging when many patients work hard to conceal them. When injected, Botox blocks the facial muscles from contracting, which reduces the lines that naturally form on the face. Not only does Botox smooth the skin immediately, but it also slows the development of new lines and wrinkles.
Rhinoplasty and other invasive surgeries require lengthy recovery times. The use of injectables and fillers is a great non-surgical alternative that can fix problems on the nose, sculpt the chin, and add volume to cheeks. The face receives a balanced, symmetrical look that appears younger and refreshed.
Youthful skin tends to have a plump, dewy glow that many patients desire. Through the procedure of microneedling, small needles puncture the skin to create tiny injuries that encourage a healing reaction. Your skin becomes plumper, brighter, and smoother, all while diminishing lines, scars, and cellulite.
Natural losses in collagen and elasticity cause many skin issues, such as lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and uneven texture. Laser resurfacing uses pulses of light to remove the damaged outer layer of the skin and encourage collagen growth in the deeper dermis layers. The result is a more even and smooth skin tone, with smaller pores and reduced lines, scars, and wrinkles.
Over time, the joys of everyday life show up on our face in the way of laugh lines, blemishes, sun damage, and scarring. Chemical peels use a blend of synthetic acids that “shed” the outer layer of the skin, taking any visible signs of damage with it. What remains is a smoother, brighter texture, as well as decreased lines, wrinkles, and scarring.
Moles come in many shapes, sizes, colors and textures on the face and body. Some moles can even be in areas that are particularly uncomfortable or unsightly. Deciding to undergo mole removal for cosmetic reasons is a personal choice. If it will help you feel more confident or improve your overall quality of life, it is a very safe and straight forward option.
Any time skin is cut through its full thickness, a scar will form. All scars are permanent in the sense that they cannot ever be erased. They can, however, be improved. Scars from surgery can be avoided with precise technique and the wound closed with the lowest amount of tension. A prime example of this is a Tummy Tuck scar. The key to having an optimal tummy tuck scar is placing it in the right location and closing it in so the skin is under the least amount of tension possible.
