Top 3 Non-invasive Facial Cosmetic Procedures: Botox Treatment and More

Posted by January 14th, 2020 in News

Of all our body parts, the face is perhaps the most vulnerable to change. Constant exposure to the sun can cause premature skin aging, which could manifest in skin dryness, appearance of dark sport or sunspots, and wrinkles. Aging, too, affects the face in different ways. Botox treatment, fillers, and laser treatments are some of the non-invasive procedures readily available to patients who wish to correct such skin issues without going under the knife.

If you haven’t undergone any type of cosmetic procedure to correct skin issues, going the non-invasive route may be more suitable for you since you’re a first-time patient. Here are some of the simplest procedures you can consider for your wrinkles, fine lines, and other facial skin issues:

1. Botox treatment

You’re probably already familiar with Botox but you’re not sure how it works. First off, a Botox treatment is recommended for reducing wrinkle visibility. The medicine is administered through injection, where the doctor will inject Botox into the target area. Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause the wrinkles to appear. The doctor will determine the dosage upon consultation. It’s important to consult a licensed and experienced physician (with successful results) to prevent the “frozen” look, which usually happens when too much Botox was injected on one area.

2. Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvéderm, and Radiesse are used to add volume to the skin. With aging comes loss of bone density as well as muscle and fat loss. When this happens, the skin may start to sag and may also start to become hollow. Dermal fillers are injected into the target areas, like the cheeks, to add volume to the skin, which gives the face a natural lift.

Fillers may also help reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. After your treatment, the doctor may recommend creams and other skin products to further reduce the visibility of these dark circles.

3. Lasers

Rejuvé not only specializes in Botox treatment and other non-invasive treatments for wrinkles and fine lines, but we also offer expert services to correct other skin imperfections like age spots, dark spots, or sunspots. Intense Pulsed Light or IPL is used to treat these unsightly spots.

IPL from Lumecca is an FDA-approved light-based technology for a procedure known as photorejuvenation. In a nutshell, photo rejuvenation heats up the dark spots up to a point where the pigments break down which then causes the dark spots to flake off.

The best part about IPL treatment is that it can effectively smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles too, as well as even out the skin tone and help treat acne.
