Top 5 Non-Invasive Cosmetic Procedures of 2012

With the year coming to an end, we wanted to provide our patients with our list of the top five non-invasive cosmetic procedures of 2012–all of which we feel are going to be just as popular and helpful in slowing the aging process in 2013! To find out if you might be a good candidate for the procedures listed below, contact the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery today to schedule an appointment.

1. Ulthera

Topping off our list of the best non-invasive procedures of 2012 is Ulthera skin tightening, a procedure that works to promote collagen growth while firming skin that has lost elasticity over the years. Ulthera uses ultrasound waves to directly impact tissue deep in the neck, brow, and face—areas of the body that show the aging process more visibly than others. At the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery, we’re proud that we could provide patients with Ulthera treatment in 2012, and look forward to treating many more patients in 2013!

2. Botox

As one of the most common procedures desired by patients in 2012, Botox offers amazing results by erasing wrinkles and crow’s feet that can cause your face to look older than you actually are. In fact, Botox is becoming increasingly popular as a defense system against the aging process, with younger patients seeking Botox treatment at the first sign of fine lines or wrinkles. Botox is a very safe procedure when injected by a board certified facial plastic surgeon, and brings incredible results to patients almost immediately.

3. Liquid Facelift

As we age, the face loses volume, gains expression lines, and features become hollow. Thanks to improving technology and non-invasive developments, Dr. Azizzadeh is happy to offer patients a liquid facelift, a procedure completely customizable for each individual patient that centers around the use of several different dermal fillers to rejuvenate the face without the need for surgery. During a liquid facelift, Dr. Azizzadeh uses treatments like Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra and Botox to combat the aging process in a subtle, yet effective manor. If you’ve been wondering about how you can beat your wrinkles without surgery, the liquid facelift may be just the procedure for you!

In many cases, Dr. Azizzadeh will also recommend combing the liquid facelift with Ulthera treatments, for optimal anti-aging results. The combination of tightening loose skin with Ulthera and adding volume back to the face with fillers helps to create unparalleled facial harmony and natural looking results.

4. CoolSculpting

When diet and exercise just isn’t working for you, the new CoolSculpting by Zeltiq may be just what you’re looking for. At the CENTER, we’ve seen a substantial increase in the amount of people seeking CoolSculpting in 2012 in order to defeat stubborn fatty areas. Targeted to eliminate unwanted fat, CoolSculpting works by actually freezing your fat cells, in turn causing them to die off and become naturally absorbed by your own body. You can expect your Beverly Hills CoolSculpting treatment to last around an hour, with full results expected to appear over the course of the next several months.

5. Sculptra

Rounding out the last of our top five procedures of 2012 is Sculptra, a facial filler that can help a patient achieve fantastic results in the fight against the aging process. Sculptra works to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, while also creating a more youthful and much fuller face. When a patient opts to undergo non-invasive Sculptra treatment, Dr. Azizzadeh makes sure to use proper injection techniques based to create a balanced facial appearance.
