Cosmetic surgery certainly has its place. Today, many patients are looking for alternatives to surgery that still offer excellent results. Since no incisions are necessary with these types of techniques, you should experience far fewer complications and may be able to return to work or your normal life immediately after your treatment.
Better Complexion with Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are one of the best alternatives to surgery that are able to treat a wide range of skin conditions ranging from acne scars to wrinkles to hyperpigmentation. There are many different types of chemical peels, but they all work in the same way: They gently remove some of the top layer of skin to encourage your body to produce new skin tissue with fewer imperfections like lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and more.
Superficial chemical peels containing mild acids that can brighten your complexion and treat enlarged pores. Medium peels are better-suited for light lines and wrinkles. They may require some sedation and a bit of downtime.
Dermal Fillers for Added Facial Fullness
Over time, subcutaneous fat and the loss of substances like collagen and hyaluronic acid can lead to skin that gradually grows thinner and more susceptible to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles that can give away your age. Dermal fillers are injectable substances that promote enhanced facial volume to smooth away lines and wrinkles and fill in hollow places in various areas, such as under the eyes and around the cheeks.
Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is very popular right now for those seeking wrinkle reduction. The hyaluronic acid is mixed within an injectable gel and once injected, it immediately goes to work to attract moisture into your skin tissue. This leads to the appearance of a dewy and radiant face that is more youthful and vibrant.
Juvéderm is actually a family of products that treat different areas of the face and have varying durations of results. Treatment options include Juvéderm Voluma XC, Juvéderm Vollure XC, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC, Juvéderm Ultra XC, and Juvéderm Volbella XC. The right filler for you can be determined during your initial consultation.
