There are options for addressing fine lines, closing large pores, thinning lips, removing acne scars, loss of facial volume and more. Let’s look a bit closer at some popular options:
This one of the most common non-surgical facelift procedures. Dermal fillers are smooth-gel injectables that help to restore volume along the cheeks, lips, under the eyes, and temples. And the effects are immediate!
The goal of the procedure is to plump up the sunken areas and eliminate dark shadows. This creates a more youthful vibrancy on the face. The effects usually last from six months to a year.
Another popular option is Botox. Botox helps reduce wrinkles significantly. It’s usually used to smooth forehead creases, crow’s feet and frown lines.
It does this by relaxing the targeted muscle and smoothing the lines associated with repetitive expressions. Results from a Botox procedure are often seen in one to two weeks after and can last up to three months.
In this procedure, fatty tissues are extracted from a different area of the body through liposuction. After the lipo, the fat cells are cleaned and processed. These are then injected into the face to enhance one’s facial volume. It lasts for years and gives the face a more youthful contour.
Another popular option is needleless treatments. This includes chemical peels, shrinking large pores, etc. Basically non-invasive techniques which improve overall skin quality.
For instance, laser and ultrasound treatments like Ultherapy and ThermiTight are used to address the deepest, foundational layers of the skin.
Dermabrasion and microdermabrasion help resurface and exfoliate the skin. This gets rid of the dry and damaged tissue making skin look more youthful and rejuvenated.
The results from these treatments last for months.
