Time marches on and it often leaves footprints of aging upon your face. You cannot stop the aging process – it happens to everyone – but you can control the speed with certain cosmetic procedures. While plastic surgery options like face and neck lifts can create incredible facial transformations, you do not always need to opt for surgery to look years younger. At Back Bay Plastic Surgery in Boston, MA, we offer some amazing non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments.
Your skin and facial tissues change with age – you may lose fat and muscle in your face and your skin becomes thinner and less elastic with time. Factors like less collagen and elastin production are to blame, as well as damage from sun exposure and other factors. Gravity takes its toll, resulting in sagging skin and tissues as youthful firmness and elasticity wane.
Facial rejuvenation treatments use various factors to combat lost elasticity and volume in the face. These include injections like Botox and fillers, as well as laser treatments and other procedures to increase collagen. Here are some of our favorite non-surgical cosmetic treatments at Back Bay Plastic Surgery.
Facial Filler Injections
Hyaluronic acid fillers are wonderful for creating immediate facial rejuvenation. If you have bags or tear troughs under your eyes, or pencil-thin lips, you can enjoy instantaneous rejuvenation with facial fillers. These injections only take about 15 minutes, and they can add the volume needed to plump under smile lines or give your lips a more youthful appearance. Facial fillers last six months or longer, depending on the product used.
Lost collagen is one of the biggest factors when it comes to aging. Most people begin producing less in their 30s and it begins to show in lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. There are many collagen-induction methods that stimulate collagen production. Microneedling, laser treatments, thermal energy (RF), and other cosmetic procedures can all help increase collagen for firmer and more youthful appearing skin. These are great options for improving skin elasticity, as well as fading age spots, scars, and other skin imperfections.
Botox is an incredible cosmetic treatment for all types of transformations, especially for facial rejuvenation. These injections can relax the muscles that cause lines, wrinkles, neck cords, and other unwanted aging issues. Botox treatment can be performed in about 15-20 minutes and results begin to be noticeable in about a week. These injections can be combined with other treatments to achieve a more youthful and attractive appearance, with results lasting 3-4 months. Botox can also help slow the formation of dynamic lines by keeping the facial muscles relaxed.
