As early as our 20s, many people begin to see signs of aging on that are difficult to disguise with makeup and skin care products. It used to be that the only option for a younger looking face was a facelift, which requires downtime, often leaves scars, and can look over tightened and unnatural. Today there are a variety of non-invasive options that can help you look years younger without the commitment of surgery.
Take a look at these state-of-the-art, effective treatments that can erase some of what time has taken away:
- Microneedling. This procedure offers the benefit of enabling your skin to form new collagen and elastin, actually acting like younger skin. It also improves blood flow, giving you a healthy glow. It treats signs of aging, wrinkles, enlarged pores, scars, stretch marks, and acne. At GLOW, we use the COSMOPen, which we feel is superior to other dermarollers and microneedling devices available today. You will see better skin after just one or two treatments, and most patients only experience some minor redness after the procedure.
- Cosmetic injectables. BOTOX® and Xeomin® are popular choices for people who want to get rid of deep wrinkles and creases, particularly those on the forehead or between the eyebrows. These injectables are one of the best ways to get a younger, softer looking appearance while still looking like yourself. You’ll see full results within a few days, and there is no downtime. Dermal filler injections form another mainstay of our non-surgical treatments to smooth and soften deep lines and folds, restore volume, and enhance facial contours. Both Juvéderm® and Radiesse® are popular dermal fillers.
- Laser treatments.> Lasers are an excellent choice for people who want to improve sun damage, age spots, dark spots, and acne scars. The targeted energy removes the damaged layers of skin, revealing smoother, brighter, more even skin underneath. Lasers can make a remarkable difference on people who thought they could not have smooth, clear skin again. Because you will be revealing new skin, you’ll need to keep your skin moist and protected after the procedure until it has fully healed.
- Facial fat transfer. Rather than using implants that can look unnatural, not to mention the invasiveness of the procedure, facial fat transfer uses your body’s own natural cells. This special procedure adds volume and a youthful plumpness back into your face while still looking like you. It might leave people wondering why you look so fresh and vibrant — because your results will look soft and realistic.
If aging and heredity have taken a toll on your skin and you want to get your youthful appearance back, consider one of these minimally invasive procedures to help you look and feel your best.
