Cosmetic surgery is a great way to revitalize the face, but it is not for everyone. You may decide against a facelift or brow lift because you do not want to undergo an invasive procedure or have the time necessary to recover from surgery. The price may also be outside of your budget. However, that does not mean that all facial rejuvenation options are out of the question for you. Here, Dr. Donald Hause shares some of the minimally invasive options he offers at Sacramento Aesthetic Surgery.
As your body ages, the skin around your face and neck becomes progressively looser. TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency to firm up that skin. The gentle heat from this radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen production, which almost instantaneously adds elasticity and firmness to your skin. The result is smoother, younger-looking skin. The downtime and side effects from this treatment are minimal, allowing you to continue with your daily activities.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
This treatment uses laser energy to remove the outer layers of damaged or aged skin to reveal the fresher layers of skin beneath. After treatment, your skin looks younger, smoother and less wrinkled. Depending on the type of laser used, the downtime can be minimal, so long as you do not mind having reddened skin for a short period of time.
Botox is a botulinum toxin that can be injected into the face to temporarily freeze the muscles in specific areas. Some indentations appear on the face due to muscle movements, so when these muscles are immobilized, these lines have an opportunity to soften and disappear. The effects of Botox last for about four months before further injections are necessary to maintain the results.
Juvederm Volume Enhancement
Another injectable option is Juvederm, a product that uses hyaluronic acid to “fill” in the face. This quick treatment is used to give volume to sunken cheeks and to add plumpness to areas where wrinkles have formed to minimize their appearance. Touch-ups for Juvederm are generally performed every six to nine months, though results vary.
