One of the most interesting trends in aesthetic surgery is the introduction of non-surgical
Patients who are looking to enhance their beauty can do so quickly and painlessly without the recovery time.
The most popular non-surgical procedures involve facial rejuvenation. The following are the top 3 facial cosmetic procedures, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
The first and most popular non-surgical procedure is Botox, as use of this injectable has increased by 8% since 2011 with more than 6.1 million injections performed in 2012. Botox is a cosmetic form of botulinum toxin that will temporarily reduce or eliminate fine lines in the face, including frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet.
Botox injections temporarily paralyze the muscles associated with wrinkles. By taking the tension out of these muscles, the face ends up looking smoother, younger, and more refreshed. Botox injections have also been found to relieve migraine headaches, help excessive sweating, and reduce muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
While these injections are quick and easy, they should be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon properly trained, otherwise Botox injections can result in drooping eyelids, facial pain, and muscle weakness, not to mention an unnatural look that patients want to avoid.
The second most popular non-surgical procedure is dermal fillers. Collagen loss most commonly occurs around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, jaw line, brow, and nose. The injection of soft tissue fillers (Juvederm / Restylane) into the skin can temporarily enhance these areas, allowing for fuller lips, softer facial folds around the cheeks/mouth, and even improve the appearance of facial scars.
As with Botox, Juvederm and other facial fillers must be injected by a board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure the safest and best and natural results.
Sun exposure, acne, and lifestyle factors such as excessive alcohol intake or smoking can cause the skin to look uneven and blotchy. A chemical peel can help smooth the texture of the facial skin, as it consists of a chemical solution that causes dead skin to slough off and eventually peel away. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
Combining the 3 procedures together, patients can experience a full face rejuvenation with less downtime and more subtle results. Natural.
