We go out into the world each and every day and present our face first; so it makes sense that facial procedures are among the most common in the world of plastic and cosmetic surgery. There are numerous facial surgery procedures that produce dramatic results, but did you know there are also several procedures individuals can undergo without the pain, downtime, and cost of surgery that can also yield a revitalized face?
Injectables like Botox® and the newer Dysport® work to smooth wrinkles and facial creases by relaxing the muscles that form folds in our skin as we age. Another variation of injectables called dermal fillers, like Restylane® and Juvederm®, fill in and smooth the folds and wrinkles that come with advancing age. Injectables and dermal fillers offer the distinct advantage of striking results with no recovery time – however, these products must be re-injected every 6 months (typically) to maintain their results.
For patients who seek a more permanent procedure, but still want something less invasive than traditional facial surgeries, laser and chemical resurfacing are good options. Chemical peels work by removing outer layers of skin to reveal the less damaged younger looking skin underneath. Similarly, laser resurfacing, depending on the type of laser used, targets and eliminates tiny sections of damaged skin that the body then heals by replacing it with collagen-rich, younger looking skin.
The beauty of these minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures is that they are infinitely customizable. Rejuvenation procedures can be performed individually to target specific areas, or in combination with other procedures to eliminate multiple issues. The natural results of injectables and resurfacing also provide an easy foray into the world of cosmetic procedures for those who wish to revive their face, but are weary of undergoing surgery.
