Not everyone is interested in or ready for a surgical procedure to help them erase years from their appearance and feel like a younger, revitalized version of themselves. The good news is that you don’t have to get surgery to look and feel your absolute best. These four minimally invasive anti-aging treatments for your face can be excellent alternatives to more extensive procedures.
BOTOX® is so popular that it’s become a bit of a household name when it comes to injectable treatments for your face. One of the greatest benefits of BOTOX and many other injectable wrinkle treatments is that it can conveniently fit into your lunch break from work, so you can work on improving your look without having to take the day off. Plus, you should be able to see your final results within just two weeks.
As with other nonsurgical anti-aging options, BOTOX results are temporary, but most people are able to enjoy their same youthful look for 3 to 4 months before needing another treatment. Some evidence even suggests that getting BOTOX may help to prevent new wrinkles from forming in the future.
Although there are similarities between injectable fillers and BOTOX – like no downtime and quick, hassle-free results, there are a few notable differences. First, BOTOX is typically used to smooth away lines and wrinkles on your forehead, between your eyebrows and at the corners of your eyes. Fillers, on the other hand, usually work best around your mouth and to add volume to your cheeks and lips.
There are several different types of fillers, and the kind that you choose will determine how long you can expect your results to last. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as JUVÉDERM® typically last anywhere from 6 months to a year, whereas Sculptra® could keep wrinkles at bay for up to two years.
Pellevé® Wrinkle Reduction
One of the contributing factors to signs of aging on our skin is the decrease in collagen production that happens gradually over time. Pellevé® wrinkle reduction uses radiofrequency waves to target underlying tissue and stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. The result is fewer lines, wrinkles and creases on your skin and a long-lasting smooth, youthful look.
Most people see the best results after a series of about 3 to 5 Pellevé treatment sessions.
Pellevé treatments usually only take about 30 minutes to complete, and there’s no downtime to worry about afterward.
Microneedling is a popular cosmetic treatment that works by creating tiny micro-channels within your skin using a state-of-the-art device like SkinPen®. This process triggers your skin to begin producing more collagen proteins, resulting in a younger-looking appearance over time. Microneedling can also help to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections like acne scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. In most cases, you’ll see optimal results after a series of several sessions, each spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.
One of the best things about all four of these nonsurgical anti-aging facial treatments is that they can often be combined to enhance your results and address specific skin concerns you might have. For example, BOTOX and fillers can be combined to smooth away wrinkles in multiple areas of your face, and laser treatments like Pellevé are often combined with treatments like microneedling to achieve an even smoother and more even skin tone and texture.
