New You for the New Year
We all love the holiday season, but all the late nights, stress, and over indulging can take a toll on your skin. With the start of each new year, a lot of people opt for non-surgical facial rejuvenation options to help them rejuvenate their facial appearance as well as their spirits.
Non-surgical facial procedures and treatments are favored by a lot of people because they are relatively cheaper and offer minimal to no downtime during recovery.
Chemical peels are one of the most potent and diverse tools for skin rejuvenation. Depending on the chemical used, peels can be classified as superficial, medium, and deep. The depth of the chemical peel must be adjusted to the depth of the pathological process to be corrected. Deeper peels can eliminate dark spots but are associated with a longer recovery time.
Chemical peel procedure initiates the peeling of the outermost layer of the skin and promotes skin renewal by encouraging the production of collagen (a protein found in the skin that is responsible for creating that plump, smooth, and naturally youthful appearance). Chemical peels are ideal for diminishing the appearance of acne, acne scars, rosacea and skin issues that primarily results from excessive sun exposure. By the end of the procedure, the patient can expect to have smoother, tighter and more hydrated skin, leaving you with a more youthful and clearer complexion.
Minimally-invasive facial injectables can be divided into two groups: the muscle relaxants (Botox) and dermal fillers. The muscle relaxants, Botox injections, are ideal for wrinkles that are formed due to repeated muscle contractions such as crow’s feet or wrinkles in the outermost corners of the eyes, forehead lines, and the vertical lines in between the brows. On the other hand, as the name implies, facial fillers work well with issues that has to do with volume loss, such as the appearance of jowls, sunken cheeks, and nasolabial folds. The middle and lower thirds of the face greatly benefit from dermal fillers.
Skin Boosters rejuvenates the skin by enhancing the hydration levels deep inside the skin tissues and increasing its elasticity, firmness and smoothness. Skin Boosters treatment replaces the lost hyaluronic acid in the skin and restores the skin’s firmness, natural hydration and radiance. Hydrated skin has a smooth and firm surface that reflects light in a manner that gives it a glowing, dewy appearance.
It contains stabilized hyaluronic acid, a vital secret ingredient to smooth and glowing skin. The procedure involves giving a series of tiny injections of hyaluronic acid into the chosen area of the skin.
Rejuran treatment activates revitalization of the skin by promoting cell growth through inducing fibroblast production of collagen. This will help achieve smoother, firmer skin by improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, and under the eyes.
For brow furrows, sagging lower face and neck, as well as crepey lines across your chest, an energy procedure using ultrasound may be just what the aesthetic doctor ordered. Ultherapy is designed to lift the face and neck and décolleté with no downtime.
Ultrasound technology stimulates the much deeper SMAS superficial musculoaponeurotic system which is the same muscle a surgeon would work with in a facelift. The anti-aging treatment procedure delivers heat into the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin – which when rejuvenated, smoothens and tightens the skin!
Ultherapy can visualize beneath the skin’s surface to target precise delivery at the right depth for each patient. Optimal results show between three and six months with final results continuing for a year.
