The field of cosmetic facial rejuvenation is rapidly advancing, with new treatments and procedures being added every year.
Here are some of the most popular anti-aging treatments currently available:
This once-revolutionary treatment is now one of the most established, and safest types of cosmetic facial procedures. Botox injections into the skin of your face can erase fine lines and wrinkles and even prevent wrinkles and lines from forming. Botox treatments are quick and mostly painless.
Dermal fillers fill in the frown lines, laugh lines and others facial wrinkles that make you look older than you feel. Injected dermal fillers are suited to anyone who is in good health and who does not have an allergy to any ingredients contained in the filler. It’s more typically used for deeper lines and creases.
Also called photorejuvenation, a photofacial is a noninvasive light-based treatment for age spots, acne scars, spider veins, and facial redness. For example, an intense pulsed light (IPL) may be used to restore and regulate skin pigmentation on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
A special type of exfoliation, this gentle cosmetic procedure minimizes the appearance of fine lines, age spots, acne, and other imperfections of the skin. It’s noninvasive and involves no downtime. It uses tiny crystals to remove (exfoliate) damaged or dead layers of skin. This nonsurgical alternative to a facelift is appropriate for most patients.
A HydraFacial is a unique facial treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and extracts impurities and dead skin cells from the skin. At same time, it delivers intense hydration to skin and treats it with vital nutrients such as antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. A HydraFacial treatment is a good option for patients who have a lot of oily buildup or blemishes on their skin. People with very delicate, thin skin may prefer microdermabrasion.
Regardless of which anti-aging treatment you choose, selecting a trusted treatment clinic is essential. You’ll want to have a preliminary consultation and work with licensed clinicians to ensure you receive the highest standard of treatment – one that is safe and effective for your particular needs.
If you have any kind of active infections, especially infections of the skin, ear, nose, throat, or any dental infections, you should not have any injections or invasive type of treatments until your infection has been treated and has cleared completely. Having certain autoimmune diseases, blood or clotting disorders, or other conditions may make cosmetic filler treatments unsafe for you.
It’s a good idea to discuss getting any invasive cosmetic treatments with your general physician or specialist before making any decisions.
