Aging is a natural process of life. While it seems to be a graceful experience for some people, many of us aren’t as lucky. Inevitably our skin will lose some of its elasticity and gain a few wrinkles from time to time. Cosmetic procedures designed to preserve the skin and fix imperfections are growing in popularity and not all of them involve going under the knife. Due to high demand, there are plenty of non-surgical options that you can consider when looking to improve the quality of your skin without having to undergo any drastic procedures.
A chemical peel is a non-surgical technique designed to improve the appearance of the skin with the application of a chemical solution. The role of the solution is to thoroughly exfoliate the skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and minimize the presence of scarring and age spots. The acid inside of the chemical solution dissolves the outer layer of the skin leading it to peel off. This allows the skin to regenerate itself and build new collagen which leaves the skin in a more youthful state.
Microdermabrasion holds the same concept as dermabrasion but is minimally-invasive. This option may be the way to go if you suffer from surface-level imperfections such as stretch marks, mild scarring, or discoloration of the skin. During this procedure, a specialist may gently sand the skin using an exfoliating tool equipped with tiny crystals. The thick, outer layer of skin can be removed revealing the healthier skin underneath. Microdermabrasion non-surgical treatments are often credited for being one of the quickest and most gentle anti-aging practices.
Requiring less downtime than a traditional facelift, ThreadLift lifts and contours the face to turn back the hands of time. This non-surgical treatment can be used in areas such as the cheek, jowls, lips, and neck. It stimulates the body to produce collagen in the area treated by ThreadLift, which means long-lasting results are possible.
Cosmetic fillers are designed to smooth folds, wrinkles, cellulite, and any other indentations of the skin as a non-surgical injection. They can even be administered to plump your lips into a more ample form. These fillers are injected directly into your problem areas and adds volume to the tissue beneath them. This process softens the creases and other areas of focus by using fillers such as collagen, calcium hydroxylapatite, polymethylmethacrylate beads, or even fat transferred from other parts of your body.
