The aging process causes the skin to change over time. We lose volume and elasticity as we get older, and while that is perfectly natural, it is often not a desirable effect for individuals going through the process. Many people seek out non-surgical procedures to slow the visual effects of aging so that they may enjoy youthful-looking skin for longer. There are many non-surgical skin treatments that you can pursue to rejuvenate your skin without surgery.
Depending on your goals, different procedures can target fine lines and wrinkles and generate collagen production and other natural healing processes that lead to new, plumper skin. By working with a trusted cosmetic surgeon, you can determine the best nonsurgical treatments for your skin.
If you live in Nashville, TN, you can work with board-certified female plastic surgeons like Dr. Mary Gingrass and Dr. Melinda Haws at The Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville. Schedule your consultation to start discussing your goals.
In the interim, read on to learn more about four popular treatments for radiant skin without surgery.
A minimally invasive option for radiant skin is laser skin resurfacing. The objective is to reduce the visual appearance of lines. Treatment often takes place around the mouth or the eyes, but it is also used to soften scarring and pigmentation. A carefully controlled burn is applied, which heals over with new skin. The skin’s natural healing processes are activated in response to the burn, giving clients the bonus of achieving completely natural results.
Skin begins to lose elasticity as we get older, and collagen production slows. Dermal fillers restore volume to areas where this elasticity and collagen lack, and they activate natural collagen production long after treatment ends. As a result, the wrinkles are smoothed, and fullness is restored in areas that have been depleted of volume. Fillers are often added to the cheeks and lips. Some options include Juvéderm, Restylane, and Revanesse.
Chemical peels are used to soften the skin’s texture by applying a chemical solution that removes dead skin from the face. This restorative process regenerates skin and reduces the appearance of blemishes, fine lines, and more. The results are healthier, softened skin that appears less wrinkled than before. Your provider can help you determine which solutions will be most effective for your skin type. A popular choice is the Blue Peel RADIANCE, which can reduce the appearance of photoaging and other specific skin concerns.
This facial technique is used to eliminate issues like hyperpigmentation and clogged pores. Using a system that penetrates deeply into the skin, your skin is rejuvenated and restored with fewer wrinkles and fine lines after the fact. A Vortex-Fusion system is applied to the skin to keep the skin happy and healthy.
