In the realm of cosmetic plastic surgery today, patients can achieve remarkable results without having to undergo surgery, leaving them with no scars and a refreshed, youthful appearance. While surgical procedures are championed for achieving life-long results, noninvasive treatments can provide a fantastic alternative for tackling wrinkles and sagging, all without the need for downtime.
The power of neuromodulators
BOTOX and Dysport are two renowned injectable neuromodulators that work wonders on wrinkles caused by muscle activity. Whether it's those pesky lines between your brows, forehead furrows, or the crow's feet around your eyes, these treatments have got you covered. They can even address the downward pull at the corners of your mouth and the neck banding that can give away your age.
Dermal fillers: Restoring plumpness to the skin
But that's not all; fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, and Perlane can also be your noninvasive allies. They work their magic by reducing creases under your eyes (those notorious tear troughs), the lines that run from your nose to your mouth (nasolabial folds), and even those marionette lines around your chin. These fillers plump up these areas, making your face appear more youthful.
Additionally, those looking to restore volume to their cheeks, smooth their chins, and give sagging skin around the jawline a lift, volumizers like Sculptra and Voluma are excellent choices. A session typically takes only 20-45 minutes, allowing patients to get back to their daily activities. It should be noted, however, that these treatments require some maintenance to maintain the results over time.
Now, let's talk about Ultherapy, an FDA-approved ultrasound treatment that rejuvenates your face in a unique way. It works by lifting the brows, cheeks, and neck while smoothing out fine lines around your eyes, mouth, and neck. What's fantastic about Ultherapy is that it's a one-time treatment that might need a touch-up after about 2.5 years. Depending on the areas you want to address, a session can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours. Ultherapy is especially great for counteracting any brow lowering that might occur after Neurotoxin treatment. Combining these treatments can create a harmonious effect, smoothing your forehead and lifting your brow for a complete rejuvenation.
