Thankfully, medical advancements have evolved in the creation of a number of non-surgical procedures that can help you to restore your youthful glow without surgery. Read on to learn about 8 ways to look and feel your best without having to undergo a surgical procedure.
Botox or Dysport
Botox and Dysport are among the most popular noninvasive procedures performed yearly to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, creating a younger-looking appearance. These injectables work by freezing or temporarily paralyzing the underlying facial muscles, reducing the skin’s ability to crease and creating smooth, wrinkle-free skin.
The most common treatment areas include the forehead, crow’s feet, above and between the brows, and frown lines around the mouth. Botox and Dysport’s benefits can last between three and six months.
As you age, your body’s collagen and elastin production begin to slow over time. As a result, the fat and collagen volume in your facial tissue begins to break down over time, creating unsightly creases and wrinkles.
Facial fillers are gel-like substances made of collagens, hyaluronic acid, and synthetic polymers. They are injected under the skin and are effective at replacing the lost volume and restoring the lost volume and fullness in your face. You can look years younger with one treatment and the results can last upwards of a year or even more. Common treatment areas include:
- The Undereye
A Chemical Peel is a popular, safe, and effective alternative to facial treatments. It can improve the appearance of your facial skin by gently removing dead skin cells to reveal healthier, radiant skin underneath. Chemical Peels use a low-concentration peeling agent to safely slough off the dead and damaged skin cells from the outer layer of your face. The result is firmer and smoother-
There are three different Chemical Peel procedures, including superficial, medium, and deep depending on your individual needs. Common treatment areas include the face, neck, and hands.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone Replacement Therapy or HRT is a treatment that boosts hormone production to bring balance to people who experience low estrogen or testosterone. Hormone loss causes many of the common signs of aging, including wrinkles and
loss of skin volume.
HRT treatment can improve the skin’s health by improving skin elasticity, increasing firmness, better sleep, better emotion regulation, and providing a more youthful glow. HRT pellets are implanted directly beneath your skin and release hormones over time. It lasts anywhere from three to six months as the pellet slowly disappears.
IV Vitamin Therapy
Vitamins are essential for your health, and for years people have taken vitamins orally to replace or replenish what they are lacking for optimal health. IV Vitamin Therapy is a procedure that administers fluids packed with vitamins and minerals directly into your body for maximum absorption. IV Vitamin Therapy can reduce the effects of a hangover, boost your immune system, and increase your energy. It is also used to fight the signs of aging by delivering powerful antioxidants to your body to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve the appearance of the skin.
Silhouette InstaLift is a non-surgical procedure that uses clear dissolving thread sutures with clear micro cones inserted under the skin to provide immediate lift and regenerative results. The procedure gradually restores lost facial volume in the midface by
activating your body’s natural collagen production. The results provide a more youthful appearance as your skin improves over time and lasts around 18 months.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial
The Platelet-Rich Plasma Facial, or PRP Facial, is a groundbreaking treatment for rejuvenating damaged and aging skin. When used with micro-needling, this treatment improves texture and tone, reduces wrinkles, stimulates collagen production, and improves the skin’s health. PRP is a high concentration of platelets which allows for the formation of growth factors and active proteins that promote healing in your skin.
The procedure begins with a professional taking a blood sample from your body and using a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from your blood. The concentrate is placed on your skin and introduced through micro-needling, allowing the plasma to begin the healing process and rejuvenate your skin.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair Restoration
Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, is widely known for its healing properties and antiaging benefits when used for a facial. Platelets
play a vital role in healing throughout the body and can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration and growth factors. Because of these growth factors, PRP has been effective at triggering natural hair growth. It can help stimulate the growth of new, thicker, healthier hair and maintain it by increasing the healthy tissue and improving the blood flow to the hair follicle.
