Rejuvenate Without Surgery

Rejuvenate Without SurgeryFor generations, surgical solutions such as facelift, neck lifts, blepharoplasty and browlifts were the mainstay of facial rejuvenation. 21st century aesthetic medicine no longer limits people to surgical options. Today´s innovative cosmetic treatments can help you stop the clock without going under the knife. If you want to eliminate the signs of aging and restore your face to its youthful radiance, note that there are several nonsurgical treatments that can get the job done.

Botox

If you would like to smooth out your expression lines but are unwilling to go under the knife, Botox and other neuromodulators are an excellent option. Dr. Azizzadeh can safely and easily restore your youthful appearance by temporarily eliminating creases, fine lines, and crow´s feet.

Botox is a purified chemical that relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, giving the skin a smooth, rejuvenated appearance. It is injected with a fine needle into the affected muscles andgenerally takes three to seven days to take full effect. Botox can also be used to subtly elevate drooping brows as well as elevate the corner of the mouth.

Chemical Peels

By peeling away the damaged top layers, chemical peels reveal smoother and more youthful looking skin. A peel may also be used to eliminate or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, mild scarring, acne, sunspots, age spots, splotching, and freckles.

Fillers

To avoid going under the knife, consider facial filler injections such as Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane and Radiesse.There are many filler options available, and the pros are plenty. Fillers injected into various areas of the face and eyes reduce folds, imbedded wrinkles, and depressed acne scars. More importantly, they can be used to restore a youthful facial shape by replenishing lost volume in the temples, eyes, midface and jowl region.  Lip fillers also plump and define lips, making it a really popular treatment option.

Facial volumizers, like Sculptra, arealso very popular with our patients. It stimulates the growth of your own collagen, providing gradual effects and longer lasting results.

Finally, the new generation of tightening devices such as Ulthera have ushered in lifting of sagging tissues that are far more effective than previous devices.  We can use these applications for neck laxity, brows and lower face and jowls.  When combined with Scultra (Sculpthera), they can have a powerful facial rejuvenating effects.

As more patients seek to maintain a youthful appearance with minimal downtime, nonsurgical facial rejuvenation is rapidly increasing in popularity.
