Yes, you can. With advancements in non-surgical cosmetic procedures, invasive surgeries such as facelifts are becoming a thing of the past. There’s actually a backlash against such treatments. Not only do most patients dismiss them as needlessly excessive, physicians do too.
Why the change in attitude? Because of the rise in popularity of non-invasive cosmetic procedures such as Botox injections, laser treatments, and injectable fillers. These innovative treatments threaten to make invasive cosmetic surgeries obsolete. After all, why waste precious time and money on plastic surgery when you can achieve the same results using a gentler approach?
No Need to Go Under the Knife
The best thing about surgical alternatives is that there’s a non-invasive cosmetic procedure for every type of wrinkle, fine line, and skin condition. Want to learn more about how you can look younger without surgery? Read on for the lowdown on all the top non-invasive cosmetic procedures currently available.
Botox works wonders, that’s for sure. It instantly erases wrinkles such as frown lines, smoker’s lines, and crow’s feet. But what is it exactly? And how does it work? Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults. It’s essentially a neurotoxin that works by attaching itself to nerve endings. Once this happens, the neurotransmitter responsible for triggering muscle contractions can’t be released. Botox injections temporarily relax the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles. This is also why wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity don’t respond to Botox treatments.
You really can’t go wrong with Botox. Millions of men and women choose Botox because there’s no surgery or recovery time involved. What’s more, Botox offers real, noticeable results. Since Botox works by weakening facial muscles, complete results are generally seen within five to seven days. You’ll see deep dynamic wrinkles gradually improve over time, in addition to the early effects seen shortly after treatment—and your results will continue to improve until about two weeks after the procedure. At that time, you’ll be looking your best. The effects of Botox will gradually wear off over the next four to six months, and the wrinkles will need to be retreated.
Dermal fillers provide all the dramatic results of plastic surgery, but without the unpleasant downtime and expense. Compared to facelifts, which can be both costly and invasive, dermal fillers can dramatically turn back the clock without undue pain. Results achieved through dermal fillers are so impressive that the American Society for Dermatological Surgery reports that nearly all patients are satisfied with the results from non-surgical facelift procedures using dermal filler products – that’s why dermal fillers are often coined “liquid facelifts.”
Literally, dozens of different dermal fillers can be found on the market to suit your every need. If you just want a temporary wrinkle filler, then a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler is your best bet. Want something more permanent and dramatic? Look for CaHa-based fillers such as Radiesse.
Which dermal filler wins the popularity contest? Probably Juvéderm. Juvéderm is a hyaluronic-based dermal filler that erases wrinkles and lines around problem areas such as the nose and mouth. It safely and effectively targets smile, marionette, and vertical lines. With just one treatment, you’ll achieve smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
Clear + Brilliant
Clear + Brilliant is clearly brilliant. It’s a non-invasive dioxide laser treatment that rejuvenates the skin from the inside out. How? Its laser technology gently resurfaces the top layer of the dermis by creating millions of microscopic treatment zones in the skin. Sounds complicated, but it’s really just about replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking tissue. The result? Smoother, softer and youthful-looking skin.
Just one Clear + Brilliant treatment produces a significant improvement in skin appearance. This improvement continues with additional procedures. To maintain your youthful Clear + Brilliant glow, most dermatologists recommend touch up treatments a few times a year.
Clear + Brilliant is most ideal for younger patients who want to reverse the early signs of aging. That’s because Clear + Brilliant encourages new collagen growth, improving skin tone and texture and reducing the appearance of pores. Clear + Brilliant is most effective on:
- Superficial lines around the eyes and mouth
- Fine lines on cheeks
- Rough skin texture
- Superficial brown age spots
Thermage is a non-invasive radiofrequency therapy that can transform and revitalize aging skin on many areas of the body. How does it work? From the inside out. It transfers heat to the epidermis, which not only encourages collagen production but also tightens existing collagen. Thermage effects this partly through radiofrequency technology, which produces electrical currents that cause collagen within the skin to contract and gradually reform. This is why most individuals experience dramatic tightening and smoothing of the skin over the six months following treatment. Since the outer layers of the skin are unaffected, there is almost no recovery time involved. The most amazing thing of all? Results from a single Thermage treatment can last up to ten years!
Which parts of the body is Thermage most effective on? On the eyes, face and body. More specifically:
- Thermage erases eyelid hooding, fine lines and furrowed brows.
- Loose jowls and sagging skin become a thing of the past with Thermage. It smooths lines and wrinkles, in addition to remodeling collagen.
- Thermage banishes crepey, sagging skin, as well as unwanted bulges and dimples. It even improves the appearance of cellulite.
Are you still young enough not to have a significant amount of sun damaged skin or wrinkles? Then microdermabrasion treatments may be able to help you maintain – and refine – your youthful look.
Microdermabrasion is a powerful exfoliating treatment. It works by removing the uppermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, chest, and hands. True microdermabrasion is usually done in a day spa, medical spa or specialized skin care studio. It produces results you can’t achieve with a home microdermabrasion kit, which is basically a scrub for the face that is often too abrasive.
Microdermabrasion can achieve dramatic results, but it is highly dependent on the skill of the esthetician. It softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring as well as pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots. For optimal results, you should get a series of treatments.
