Early signs of aging can be irritating reminders that you’re getting older, but there are a number of treatment options for women and men that want to maintain their youthful looking skin and avoid surgery. Here are some of the most popular nonsurgical facial rejuvenations treatments:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic targets facial muscles that contract under the skin, resulting in “dynamic wrinkles.” This treatment works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes by relaxing these muscles. Most women and men experience smoother skin for approximately 4 months.
- Restylane® is a dermal filler that restores lost volume to the folds that often appear around the nose and mouth. This simple treatment requires no allergy testing, and women and men often see results for up to six months.
- RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is injected into the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines, restoring volume that is lost as a person ages. This treatment provides a “scaffold” under the skin around which new collagen grows for lasting results.
- Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates collagen growth over time. Surgeons often recommend a series of treatments over a span of a few months for natural and longer results that can last up to 2 years.
These treatments serve as a great alternative to surgery, and as a complement for other plastic surgery procedures. Qualified plastic surgeons can easily help people determine which treatments are right for their desired result.
