With each passing birthday, your skin will inevitably lose some of its youthful firmness and gain a few wrinkles as a natural part of the aging process. If you think a facelift is your only option to reclaim a vibrant appearance, think again. Here’s a look at several nonsurgical options that can rejuvenate your skin and help you look years younger without stitches, surgery or scars.
1. BOTOX® Cosmetic
Frown lines and crow’s feet are among the first signs of aging to show up on the face. BOTOX® dramatically improves the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and forehead by temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles that are responsible for their development. BOTOX® is affordable, fast-acting and delivers results that can last for several months.
2. Injectable Fillers
Injectable fillers are a great way to correct the deeper lines that form around the mouth and nose, like laugh lines or marionette lines. The most popular injectable fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that’s naturally found in the skin, so they safely deliver results that look subtle rather than “done.”
3. Fraxel® Dual Laser
The revolutionary Fraxel® Dual Laser is gentler and requires less downtime than traditional laser resurfacing, yet the results are no less impressive. This laser is unique because it operates at two different wavelengths, each of which targets different skin issues: one wavelength corrects pigmentation problems while the other promotes the production of new collagen in the skin.
Whether using one or a combination of these products, your practitioner can take a comprehensive approach to addressing your unique skin concerns and leave your complexion looking beautiful, radiant and years younger.
