Anti-Aging! Anti-Wrinkle! Looking younger is in! Are you starting to notice fine lines and wrinkles? Does your skin look drab, spotty, and lack the vibrancy of youth? If so, non-surgical facial rejuvenation may be for you! Many things take a toll on your appearance; aging, sun, genetics, and skin disorders can all cause spots, fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and facial thinning.
This article is the first in a 5 part series discussing the top 5 non-surgical cosmetic procedures to reverse the signs of aging through facial rejuvenation.
Exploring Your Facial Rejuvenation Options
Let’s explore your options… The following five procedures are the most popular and effective skin treatments available without turning to surgical fixes. Depending on your stage of life, a few of the options might work better than others or they can be combined to achieve truly outstanding results.
Without a doubt, cosmetic injections instantly start to turn back the clock and provide you with a very natural, youthful appearance. The injectables work by relaxing your facial muscles to smooth away frown lines, crow’s feet, and marionette lines around your face. Anti-wrinkle injections are a safe way to recapture your youth and prevent more wrinkles from appearing. Millions of patients worldwide have undergone the procedure with truly amazing outcomes.
Usually, you’ll experience noticeable results within three to four days following treatment and achieve even greater smoothing of the skin in about 14 days. Anti-wrinkle injections last about three to four months at which time you’ll need additional injections to maintain your looks.
Dermal Fillers For Facial Rejuvenation
Dermal fillers are another injectable that instantly plump and add volume. As you age, your skin starts to lose collagen and you take on a sullen and tired presence. With fillers, you can have the youthful contours of your face restored. Popular areas for fillers include the lips, marionette lines, chin, cheeks, under eyes, jowls, and frown lines. The fillers add subtle fullness and instantly start to smooth wrinkles.

Without a doubt, fillers give your face a hydrating boost that instantly makes you feel and look younger. These types of cosmetic injectables do not affect the muscles of your face as do anti-wrinkle injections. Instead, they combat wrinkles by restoring lost volume.
Fillers can also be used to enhance the size and shape of lips. Lip injections get rid of ‘smoker’s lines’ and cheek fillers lift your sagging cheeks. Overall, fillers are a wonderful way to hold off the first signs of aging.
Non-invasive skin tightening processes are new-age ways to battle aging and rejuvenate tired skin. The procedure often includes the use of an infrared light source (such as a laser) with the goal to stimulate the skin to encourage renewed production of supporting collagen.
Often facial tightening is noticeable after only the first treatment because the skin has tightened and contracted. In addition, there is no downtime with skin tightening. You can immediately return to normal life.
Typically, skin tightening takes two to three treatments several weeks apart to attain the results you desire. Fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity such as in the jowls are tightened and smoothed. Another perk is that pore size is usually reduced making your skin look smooth and flawless. Skin tightening can also be performed on other parts of the body besides the face such as your neck, abdomen, upper arms and thighs.
Microneedling involves making thousands of microscopic punctures in the skin’s surface to encourage collagen production. Following microneedling, your skin will appear rosy for a few weeks and then start to plump with collagen renewal. The procedure is relatively painless so don’t let the thought of needles scare you.
The term ‘medi-facial’ pertains to the use of chemical peels, hydrating serums, and skin brightening. They’re fantastic options to pamper your skin and allow you to experience dramatic rejuvenation. Gentle exfoliation combined with skin brightening gives anyone the boost they need to look refreshed and vibrant. Your skin will feel soft and supple. Many patients find the entire medi-facial experience relaxing and soothing, giving them well deserved “me time”.
