When it comes to the world of beauty, we’re very lucky these days. There are wonderful aesthetic options to choose from for maintaining a youthful and radiant appearance. Plastic surgery is always a choice you can make, but most of us would like to avoid it if possible. Today’s variety of facial rejuvenation treatments help us soften and arrest our wrinkles, restore lost volume, and firm up sagging facial contours. When performed by a skilled and talented injector, the results are natural-looking and refreshing. What makes these treatments even more attractive is their minimal to zero downtime and long-lasting effects.
The tightly pulled back facelift of yesteryear is no longer desired by most. We all want to look as good as we feel on the inside, but we don’t want that artificial appearance. That is why facial rejuvenation is a hot trend. The treatments don’t involve a scalpel, and a long recovery is not involved.
You don’t have to be a movie star or top model to seek facial rejuvenation. Non-celebrities are also enjoying the instant benefits that these affordable cosmetic treatments offer.
Four Fabulous Facial Treatments
Of course, there is a long list of procedures available for redefining your looks, but we are featuring the fabulous four that can be done alone or in combination. Even undergoing just one of these treatments can transform your image.
It’s important to choose your dermatologist or aesthetic technician wisely because they can create the awesome results you’re looking for. You want a licensed professional who has the experience and knowledge needed in performing advanced skin care treatments. These experts know what layer of the skin to inject under, for example. They also know where the nerves and dangerous blood vessels are and know about the pitfalls. Of course, experts who have a keen aesthetic eye can also make a striking difference when sculpting the face with injectables. An artistic injector can transform a face in mere minutes.
This anti-wrinkle serum is the first amazing option and remains the number one cosmetic treatment requested around the globe. More than 7 million people undergo BOTOX® procedures in the United States every year. The injections are simple, quick, and effective and can iron out those pesky lines on the face and neck.
BOTOX® is an injectable, but it is not a dermal filler. Its job is to freeze certain facial muscles so that your wrinkles relax and look barely there. It’s great at smoothing the frown lines that sit right between the eyebrows. BOTOX® also hides your under-eye lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and more. You can even receive a mini brow lift when it’s injected at the outer eyebrow area.
One quick treatment can yield results that last from three to six months. To maintain the effects, you will need more sessions, or the lines will eventually return to their regular movement and noticeability.
It’s an excellent cosmetic treatment for both young people and mature people. Social media has catapulted the wrinkle smoother to epic proportions, and now, Millennials are having the injections to try and prevent wrinkles from forming. The younger generation has become very aware of how they look in selfies and come across social media lines. Statistics from 2018 have shown a 72% increase in people under 30 getting plastic surgery or injectables. Those over age 40 often get BOTOX® to achieve a smoother, younger-looking face and to also maintain a competitive edge in the workplace.
BOTOX® can repair the frown lines and wrinkles you already have and also prevent these tell-tale lines from getting any deeper. New studies have shown that a consistent routine of BOTOX® treatments is an excellent preventative measure that stabilizes wrinkle depth.
When prolonged sun exposure and general aging kick in, our faces undergo visible physical changes. It is common to lose volume and skin firmness and for our faces to drop. Wrinkles become deeper and skin can lose its smoothness and balanced tone.
Dermal fillers have basically revolutionized the way we look at aging. These sophisticated injecting serums can create natural, subtle changes in both women and men. Adding a little volume to your cheeks and temples can transform your facial contours with lift and fullness. These injectables can also subtly fill in wrinkles and deeper folds to soften them. Fillers can also hide your jowls along the jawline and create a sharper, younger profile. They can also add sexy volume to thin lips and plump the skin of sagging hands.
Hyaluronic acid filler (HA) is the most popular type available because it creates a smooth, soft, youthful effect. It also helps your skin maintain hydration. Some HA fillers can last for up to two years. There are other fillers that also offer great facial rejuvenation. Sculptra® is a unique filler made of a synthetic compound that activates your collagen to keep building strong fibers. It takes time to see the full results, but this injectable can add major volume to hollow facial contours and last more than two years.
Exfoliation is another important step to ageless skin, and a chemical peel and other kinds of facials deliver superb, deep pore-cleansing. There are all kinds of peels designed to tackle different skin care issues. Your aesthetic technician can determine the best peels to improve your individual complexion.
Light peels like glycolic acid offer treatment to fine lines, uneven skin tone, acne, large pores, and a dull complexion. Glycolic acid is a universal peel that most skin types can tolerate. Radiant, clear skin is developed through several facial peel sessions.
It’s always best to undergo a chemical peel by a licensed skin care expert and not perform a do-it-yourself peel. These professionals know how long a peel should sit on the face, how to remove a peel and how to care for the skin post-peel. They also have the experience to apply a peel quickly and evenly.
Facial peels come in a variety of peel types and concentrations. These powerful solutions can address just about every kind of complexion issue out there. Peels can improve acne scars, age spots, aging skin, crow’s feet. hyperpigmentation, melasma, scars, sun-damaged skin, sagging skin and wrinkles.
A lactic acid peel is considered ideal for sensitive complexions and can treat hyperpigmentation and spots. A beta peel contains both salicylic acid and glycolic acid for a two-pronged approach to taming acne and sebum production and clearing up congested pores. TCA (trichloroacetic acid) is another peel that offers a medium strength treatment. The solution is excellent at improving sun damage, melasma, scar reduction, and more.
Peels are the ultimate exfoliators, and that means getting to the root of the problem. Chemical peels go deep to penetrate the layers of the skin and remove damaged skin cells. Some stronger solutions can even treat precancerous skin growths like actinic keratosis. Skin care professionals recommend that you apply a high-quality sunscreen of SPF 30+ after any peel to protect your new, smoother, softer complexion.
Another way to achieve soft, smooth skin is through the traditional cosmetic treatment called microdermabrasion. The procedure uses a special wand with various tips to lightly sand the skin and create a great resurfacing result. The special device sprays your skin with tiny diamond chips and vacuums away the excess. You end up with a buffed and polished complexion.
Microdermabrasion treatments are fast, simple, and effective, and your complexion will glow like never before. The sessions can address common issues like uneven skin tone and coarse skin texture. The procedure can also soften fine lines and wrinkles over time, help reduce an oily complexion and deep-clean the pores.
During the chemical-free treatment, you will not need a numbing agent or medication to get prepped. It is not a painful session and lasts about 30 minutes. You don’t have to worry about hiding out and healing your skin as in a laser procedure. Minor side effects include pinkish skin that feels tight and dry, but that’s about it. You can return to your normal day of activity. A hydrating cream will offer moisturizing benefits, and a strong sunscreen will offer solid sun protection.
To achieve the best results, a series of microdermabrasion treatments is recommended. Most clients typically undergo between five and eight sessions that are spaced about two weeks apart.
Facial rejuvenation can be tailored to each individual, and as you can see, you have amazing treatments to choose from. Every client has personal aesthetic goals, and the right licensed expert will carefully listen to the client and help them achieve the rejuvenation they are seeking.
