The idea of ageing gracefully is a noble one. However, in this day and age, looking fresh and youthful is not just a matter of vanity but also professional survival. fortunately, a plethora of modern daynon-surgical cosmetic procedures—nimble fillers, futuristic lasers, and resurfacing treatments—offer, when done in succession and with restraint, subtle refreshment without going under the scalpel.
Here are a few options to keep you look as young as you feel on the inside.
Probably the best known non-surgical procedure to fight off aging, botox involves a small painless injection that relaxes the muscle tension that results in wrinkles. This injection improves moderate to severe frown lines, smoker’s lines, forehead furrows, and crow’s feet. It can also effectively contour your jawline and slim your face. It’s a relatively simple procedure and could have you looking younger in as little as a couple of days. While the effects do fade, you will only have to go in two or three times a year to keep up the appearance. A botox injection can go a very long way to making your face and neck looking smoother, younger, and wrinkle-free.
The full effects of Botox injection can take 2-14 days to develop fully and can last up to 6 months.
Patients may be able to resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. Common side effects, as with all injectable treatments, include swelling, bruising, bleeding, and itching at the injection site. Most side effects, however, resolve themselves naturally within 24 hours.
As we age, noticeable volume loss in the face causes drooping, sagging, and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can help replenish this volume, giving you a youthful and refreshed look while diminishing facial lines and wrinkles. Fillers are injected into significant spots to help provide some volume that fills out sags and reduces wrinkles. This is great for adding some volume to your cheeks and filling out your lips.
Filler injection can often take less than an hour, has very few side effects, and the results are both quick and long-lasting—sometimes up to two years. Think of what you could do with more years of youth.
If you miss the radiance of your youthful self, then a chemical peel might be right for you. A chemical peel is a procedure used to enhance and smooth the texture of your skin. The peel gently sloughs off the outermost layer of the skin, leaving you with completely fresh, untouched skin. Results include tightened, even-toned, smooth, and refreshed skin. Peels are usually performed on the face, but it can also be used on the neck, chest, and hands. Chemical peels can likewise be used to treat rough skin, acne scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, and sunspots/damage.
While patients can go back to their normal routine almost immediately after treatment, the skin is sensitive and should be makeup-free and protected from the sun for at least 2-4 days. Most patients begin to experience peeling after a couple of days following the treatment, which resolves itself in 2-5 days.
You don’t have to let time and age win. If you have a vibrant and energetic soul, then let your appearance reflect that joy and charm.
