Getting a fresher looking face doesn’t have to break the bank or require you to have major plastic surgery. You can have a more youthful and healthy appearance without needing a single incision! Nonsurgical facial rejuvenation has been growing steadily in popularity over the years and there are different procedures that make it easy for you to have a young, fresh face.
Smoothing Out Wrinkles
One of the most well-known examples of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation is the Botox injection. Botox acts as a mild paralytic to the dynamic muscles in your face that create your facial expressions, such as those around your eyes and forehead. Paralyzing the muscles prevents them from contracting, which helps to smooth out your skin and erase or reduce those wrinkles.
Botox isn’t the only way to improve wrinkles – a variety of dermal fillers are designed to do the same thing. Sculptra or Juvederm Voluma add a little extra volume to your skin, causing it to fill out a little more and stretch out wrinkles. Other fillers can boost the structural components your skin needs to stay firm and tight. Fillers can be used in different areas and in multiple combinations to get you the best results.
Filling in Hollow Areas
Sometimes your skin loses volume as you get older, which can cause your face to look hollow in certain areas. This effect most often occurs in your cheeks or around your eyes. Dermal fillers and under eye fillers can be used to improve this problem, but facial fat transfers might help you even more. This is a procedure where your own fat is harvested from somewhere on your body (usually your thighs or buttocks), treated, and then injected into your face to help fill in depressions or hollows. The fat adds more volume to your face, which helps you look healthier and more energetic. Fat transfers also carry slightly fewer risks than dermal fillers since the material comes directly from your own body instead of coming in a synthetic form.
Brightening the Skin
Even if you don’t have wrinkles or hollow skin, your skin might still benefit from some rejuvenation. Skin suffers a lot of damage throughout your life. Everything from the sun to acne to injuries causes damage, which builds up over time. Your skin can start to look dull, dry, or ashen which adds to an aged appearance.
This appearance can be improved by removing the layers of dull and damaged skin. There are a few different options for accomplishing this task, including dermabrasion. Dermabrasion involves using what is essentially an extremely fine sanding tool to gently remove the top layers of your skin. As your skin heals, newer healthier cells take the place of the damaged ones, leaving your skin smoother and brighter looking than before.
Another procedure that could improve the look of your skin is collagen induction therapy, which boosts the amount of collagen production. Collagen is important in keeping your skin tight and smooth across your face. Boosting its production helps improve the look of damage and makes your skin look healthier.
