Fine lines, wrinkles, and facial sagging affects us all eventually. However, when the first signs of aging do occur, there are several options available to diminish their appearance. Many individuals opt out of surgical procedures because they don’t want the discomfort and downtime that comes with it. If you want to fight signs of aging without going under the knife, you might want to learn about these popular nonsurgical facial procedures!
Botox and Fillers
Botox and fillers are both injectable formulas that smooth facial lines and wrinkles in different ways. Botox works by temporarily reducing muscle contractions, leading to improved lines and wrinkles in the upper face. Fillers on the other hand, literally fill in lines and folds and are great for the lower face to smooth wrinkles that are present even when the muscles are relaxed. Both Botox and fillers are temporary solutions, but with touch-up sessions, you can maintain your youthful appearance!
Healthy collagen is the key to stronger skin. Unfortunately, our collagen production decreases after the age of 30, resulting in lines and wrinkles. Microneedling can trigger your collagen production by stimulating the body’s natural healing process. To do this, a small tool containing many tiny needles is rolled across the skin, causing micro punctures below the surface. These punctures will gradually fill in with new collagen to give you stronger skin with fewer lines and wrinkles and an overall rejuvenated appearance.
If you’re afraid of needles, you can find rejuvenation with Pelleve. The treatment uses radio-frequency energy delivered through a small pen-like tool, so no needles are necessary! The energy heats deep layers of skin to promote new collagen and elastin growth. Although the results aren’t immediate, it will only take a few weeks for your skin to become stronger and noticeably tightened. After a series of treatments, you can experience younger-looking skin from your own natural collagen.
