Non-Surgical Facial Treatments
Human interaction carries many subliminal elements. One of the more basic is interpretation of the facial features of one another. When you speak with another person, you inherently focus on their face whether you realize it or not. While certain facial movements can convey a message, the actual appearance of the face does so as well. If you have issues with wrinkles, blotches or other matters that bother you, non-surgical treatments can provide a solution.
Non-surgical solutions for facial treatments are numerous. On the simple side, there are treatments such as Botox and collagen injections. Dermal fillers can also be used to smooth out or fill in creased or folded areas. Skin peels represent yet another way to address the actual texture and appearance of the skin. A less aggressive approach than skin peels can include the use of Retin-A and acids to rejuvenate the skin and underlying collagen.
As you can see, there are more than a few options. So, which one should pick? Well, your best bet is to consult with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon for advice regarding your specific condition. Many medical professionals now use digital software systems that can more or less predict what the effect of a particular treatment will be. This allows you to see a possible result of the recommended treatment, but keep in mind your results may be different.
At your consultation, you are probably going to be told something surprising. Most non-surgical facial treatment plans do not consist of just one type of treatment. Instead, a combination of approaches may be recommended. If you have wrinkles, a physician may suggest a facial peel to reduce or eliminate them followed by collagen or botox injections to prevent the wrinkles from returning. Alternatively, a dermatologist may recommend a specific course of action to treat wrinkles on the forehead combined with a separate course of action to deal with folds in the neck. The point, of course, is that each situation is different and requires a different plan.
Regardless of the approach taken to address your specific situation, the good news is that non-surgical facial treatments have a high rate of success. While they rarely will replicate the improvement of a facelift, many patients do not require such dramatic and painful treatment.
