Facial rejuvenation without surgery is a reality and here we tell you three simple and non-invasive methods to achieve it.
How non-surgical treatment options work
Botulinum toxin, biostimulators, and lasers target several factors that influence a person’s appearance, such as pigmentation, muscles, volume loss, and redness of blood vessels.
The devices and agents we use in these treatments break down dead skin cells, smooth wrinkles, tighten the skin and reduce fat deposits. Results can last from three months to more than a year.
Botulinum toxin facial rejuvenation
The activity of the muscle tissue surrounding the forehead and eyes can cause wrinkles in the skin as we age. Products such as botulinum toxin (popularly known as Botox) gently treat the muscles in these areas, reducing lines and wrinkles known as crow’s feet, forehead and between the eyebrows.
Therefore, when injected correctly, these products can also help lift and even out eyebrows and eyelids. We can target specific muscles to create a more balanced, healthy and youthful appearance.
Botulinum toxin is injected into the skin through a fine needle. The procedure is low risk and painless. Patients typically see results within 48 to 72 hours, and the effects typically last approximately eight months.
Facial rejuvenation with fillers
As we age, our faces lose some volume and tone causing a more aged and hollow appearance. However, biostimulators made of hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite and polylactic acid, among others, are compounds similar to a natural substance in the skin, they can add volume for six to 12 months with a simple injection or up to 3-4 years.
While commonplace, it is important to understand that these are medical procedures and require experience. Choosing an experienced professional like Dr. María Fernanda Benavides guarantees excellent results.
Laser facial rejuvenation
Laser therapy can address a number of problems within the skin and reduce t he appearance of facial wrinkles, age spots, scars, blood vessels and blemishes. Most of these are in-office and are performed with topical or local anesthesia. Recovery depends entirely on the type of laser used and can range from an hour to several days.
Botulinum toxins, biostimulators, and laser therapy have been available for many years and, when expertly administered, are safe and effective in improving the appearance of aging skin.
