Are you struggling with age-related changes in your appearance? Signs of aging can pop up seemingly overnight, thanks to the decrease in collagen and elastin we experience with age.
When collagen and elastin decline, the skin gets laxer and loses “bounce-back,” resulting in wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and volume loss.
While many people rush to grab the latest anti-aging products, there are other ways to reverse signs of aging in your skin. Non-surgical and non-invasive treatments can help take years off your appearance, giving you a fresh and youthful look.
Cohen Plastic Surgery and JEMA Beauty Medical Spa in Nassau County, NY, offers a wide range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Learn more about some of the most popular ones below.
The HydraFacial is a 3-in-1 treatment designed to combat some of the most common cosmetic concerns, particularly signs of aging.
HydraFacials incorporate the use of a HydraPeel device to deeply exfoliate and resurface the skin, creating a smooth canvas for further treatment. Once properly exfoliated, nourishing serums are massaged deeply into the skin to create a vibrant, youthful complexion.
A HydraFacial treatment can perform the following actions in one non-invasive procedure:
- Exfoliate dead skin cells
- Clear out congested pores
- Extract debris and blackheads
- Create a smoother complexion
- Moisturize dehydrated skin
- Diminish fine lines and wrinkles
- Brighten dull, dry skin
HydraFacials can help create a refreshed appearance by taking on certain age-related changes like wrinkles and dull skin. The exfoliating action of the HydraPeel tip penetrates deeply into the pores, ridding your skin of impurities and removing dead skin cells. What’s left is a clear, younger-looking complexion.
Dermal fillers are an injectable cosmetic treatment that can combat signs of aging and enhance certain facial features. These injections contain hyaluronic acid, which is known for its anti-aging properties. Hyaluronic acid produces a plumping effect under the skin, stimulating collagen production and increasing volume.
With age, the loss of volume we experience in our skin is most evident in the cheeks, lips, under the eyes, and around the mouth. Dermal fillers can help add youthful fullness to sagging cheeks or hollow under the eyes. Juvéderm and Restylane are two popular lines of dermal filler injections.
Juvéderm is a dermal filler injectable most often used around the mouth and eye. This filler can smooth fine lines and add volume to sullen areas on the face.
Juvéderm is known for its long-lasting results, with plumping and smoothing effects lasting as long as nine months to one year.
Restylane is a line of dermal fillers that can tackle various age-related changes. It’s most often used in the mouth area to reduce fine lines and creases and add volume to thin lips. Restylane restores volume to hollow under-eyes and smooths crow’s feet when used around the eyes.
One of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments is Botox. Botox is what’s known as a “neuromodulator,” which means it interacts with your nerves and alters the way they function.
A common cause of wrinkles and fine lines is overactive facial nerves that cause continuous facial movements. These movements can lead to creasing in the skin over time. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing specific facial nerves, keeping the skin firm, tight, and smooth.
Botox can address these common signs of aging:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Forehead creases
Patients enjoy Botox because it is a non-surgical, outpatient cosmetic treatment. You get to experience significant results without any recovery or downtime involved.
Most patients see Botox results for three to four months before scheduling touch-up appointments.
