What Is A Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Treatment?
Achieving a firmer, smoother face doesn’t necessarily mean undergoing surgical treatment. There are various non-surgical facial rejuvenation techniques that can give you beautiful glowing skin, without the need for an invasive procedure.
How Can It Benefit Your Skin?
Many facial rejuvenations penetrate into the skin, beyond the superficial dermis. They aim to remove the outer layer of skin to improve the areas of concern. These treatments can help the appearance of:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Sun damaged skin
The results will vary from treatment to treatment. Your specific needs will be discussed in your initial consultation to ensure you’re choosing the best procedure for your particular skin concerns.
What Treatments Are Available?
We offer a variety of non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments that can all improve the appearance of the skin, covering a wide range of issues. Some of the most popular treatments include:
Anti-wrinkle – For those with crows feet, forehead furrows, frown lines and more, anti-wrinkle injections may be the best course of treatment. Botox injections can improve the volume of the tissue, specifically targeting the deeper wrinkles. Alternatively, dermal fillers are also an excellent option for reducing the appearance of wrinkles. This gel injection can make your wrinkles appear smoother and less noticeable.
Scarring and sun damaged skin – Acne scars, injury scars and sun damaged skin may all be helped with a chemical peel or laser resurfacing. A chemical peel is a highly specialised treatment that uses chemicals to cause the outer layers of the skin to peel away. There are different degrees of strength available depending on the severity of the problem.
Laser resurfacing treatment, on the other hand, uses beams of light to vaporise the outer layers of the skin. Both treatments also work well for wrinkles and fine lines.
Dull, tired skin – Though all the treatments we offer can help revitalise dull, tired skin, dermabrasion is often the preferred method. It uses a special tool to remove the superficial layers of the skin for a fresh, healthy glow. This technique can also help with the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
Better definition – For those looking for more definition, dermal fillers can provide great results. Injections of the gel can be used to increase volume of the cheeks, chin or lips for a plumper appearance.
Risks And Complications
Even with non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments, there are some risks to be aware of. The side effects that patients may experience often include redness and swelling, but uncommon risks after the treatment are as follows:
The rarer, more serious risks will be discussed with your surgeon at your initial consultation.
Who Can Get Facial Rejuvenation Treatments?
Anyone aged 18 years or over can get these treatments, though it’s most common for those aged 40 – 60.
How Long Will The Effects Last?
This depends on the treatment, but many may require repeat visits every few months or years. No non-surgical facial rejuvenation results are permanent.
How Much Is Facial Rejuvenation?
Each treatment carries different costs due to the nature of the treatment and the area of concern. You will be provided with a full quote after your first consultation.
Does Facial Rejuvenation Hurt?
