Non-surgical facial rejuvenation comprises a broad range of cosmetic products to provide a younger and fresher look to the face. Signs of aging are first seen on our faces, and many individuals, both male and female, are searching for ways to improve fine lines and wrinkles without the need of surgical intervention. There are a number of effective FDA approved products that are prescribed by physicians to enhance the quality of patients’ facial features.
Latisse for Improved Eyelash Growth
Latisse is the first FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate lash growth, also known as hypotrichosis. This prescription treatment is used to grow your natural lashes fuller, longer, and darker. Initial results may be seen within 4-6 weeks, with full results anywhere from 12-18 weeks. In order to see the full effect of your eyelash transformation, it’s crucial that you follow the application process consistently. Once you begin, you must continue applying the topical solution each night and follow the directions for best results. Results are gradual over time, but dramatically improved. If you stop using Latisse at any time, your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.
Neocutis for Younger, Fresher Skin
The full line of Neocutis products is a balanced mixture of human growth factors to help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, texture, and tone of stressed skin. Unlike any other anti-aging skin care system on the market today, Neocutis involves the power of processed skin cell proteins, also known as PSP. The latest breakthrough in anti-aging research, PSP utilizes the power of cells taken from the non-scar-producing stage of wound repair to stimulate cell renewal and promote younger, fresher looking skin. Neocutis is known for its ability to achieve visible, lasting results, while diminishing the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles. It can also heal damaged skin to provide a refreshed look.
Juvederm for Smoother, Plumper Facial Features
Juvederm is the smooth gel filler administered by your doctor to instantly smooth away facial wrinkles around your mouth and nose and restore natural contours. Everyone ages differently, and Juvederm may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas, from smile lines to vertical lip lines. Environmental factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and stress are some of the factors contributing to aging and the formation of unwanted lines. Fortunately, with just one treatment, you get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
Botox to Improve Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Botox Cosmetic is a popular non-surgical treatment for men and women to improve moderate to severe frown lines. Botox relaxes the facial muscles, which cause unwanted wrinkles and creases due to aging, gravity, sun exposure, or a result of facial muscle action. This prescription medicine is injected directly into the targeted muscles and used to temporarily improve fine lines and wrinkles. Ideal areas to treat include between the eyebrows, and on forehead lines and crow’s feet. The advantages of Botox are obvious—it requires no surgery and no recovery time.
Laser Skin Resurfacing for Hyperpigmentation and Wrinkles
Laser skin resurfacing can improve a variety of skin problems, including fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, acne scars, birthmarks, and enlarged oil glands. The procedure consists of short, concentrated beams of light that, when focused on damaged skin, removes them one layer at a time. As the outer layer of damaged skin is removed, the light also stimulates new collagen to grow so that when new skin grows it is smoother and firmer. The procedure is also known as laser peel, laser vaporization, and lasabrasion.
