With today’s medical advancements, you no longer have to go under the knife to turn back the hands of time. There are plenty of non-surgical options that can improve fine lines and wrinkles and provide an overall rejuvenated appearance. More and more people are trying out these types of procedures. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that the number of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in 2014 increased 4% from 2013, and a whopping 154% from 2000.
Among the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are Botox, facial fillers, chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Olansky Dermatology is proud to offer each of these leading aesthetic services at our office. Here are the highlights of each:
- Botox: Injecting Botox into areas of the face will block muscular nerve signals and weaken muscles so they are unable to contract. This works to smooth out the facial skin and reduce Crow’s feet and frown lines.
- Fillers: Aging involves a loss of volume, particularly in our face. To restore areas of depleted fat beneath the skin, a soft tissue filler can be used. Fillers such as Radiesse and Juvéderm are used to restore cheek volume while Restylane can plump thinning lips and smooth out nasolabial folds.
- Chemical Peels: Chemical peels are a great solution for adults who have age spots, scars or areas of pigmentation. There are a variety of chemical peels that each work by removing the damaged layers of skin and stimulating new skin growth.
- Microdermabrasion: This is a lightly abrasive treatment that sands away the outer layer of your skin and triggers collagen production. The result is reduced pore size, improved fine lines and wrinkles, better skin tone and an overall refreshed complexion.
Although the results of these minimally invasive treatments may not be as dramatic or long-lasting as a facelift, they provide excellent benefits with respect to your time and budget. Our aesthetic services from Olansky Dermatology are safe, comfortable and require no downtime.
