Facial rejuvenation consists of different cosmetic treatments which restore a youthful, blemish-free appearance to the human face. Some of the most popular and effective non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments include Botox injections, dermal fillers, and fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing.
When is facial rejuvenation considered?
As we age, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and other skin irregularities can develop. Age, sun exposure, smoking, and hereditary factors can all contribute to an older and more tired looking appearance.
Facial rejuvenation procedures will repair damaged, imperfect skin and give your face a fresher, more youthful and revitalized appearance. Acne scarring, birthmarks, and other skin imperfections can also be treated with non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments.
What are the facial rejuvenation procedures that are available?
The top three most effective facial rejuvenation procedures are:
- Botox injections: blocks the nerves from contracting to minimize wrinkles
- Dermal fillers: injectable substances to improve skin contouring
- Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing: gently removes the outer layer of skin to smooth imperfections, wrinkles, and lines
Botox is a prescription substance that's injected into the facial muscles. Injections of Botox block the nerve signals to the muscle at the injection site. As a result, the muscle is not able to contract. The end result is less facial wrinkles. Botox is one of the top five non-surgical treatments used in the USA today.
Botox is administered when you want to temporarily diminish the appearance of moderate to severe fine lines around and under your eyes, forehead, and the area between your eyebrows.
It can also be used to smooth lip lines, bunny lines (horizontal wrinkle across the ridge of the nose), neck bands, and to lift the corners of the mouth. In addition, Botox can be used to soften a square jaw and to correct a gummy smile (when the teeth are overshadowed by the gums when smiling).
Dermal fillers are injected into certain areas of the face to fill in wrinkles. The end results can last several months up to a year or longer.
Dermal fillers are sometimes called “liquid facelifts” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the extensive recovery time. Popular dermal fillers include Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse, which are often used in combination with Botox for a complete and comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
Commonly known as a laser peel, fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing reduces facial wrinkles, scars, and blemishes by using beams of light. Laser treatments also effectively treat sun-damaged skin, age spots, warts, birthmarks, and enlarged oil glands on the nose.
Fractional CO2 laser skin treatment uses high-energy amplified light waves of carbon dioxide (CO2) that vaporize carefully selected areas of the top layer of skin. You’ll heal faster from this type of treatment because only the top layer is treated and deeper skin layers aren’t affected.
