You may have heard about non-surgical skin rejuvenation methods and would like more information on what to expect from these treatments. Non-surgical skin rejuvenation methods often work by stimulating the skin to rejuvenate itself from the inside out. The best way to find out what to expect in your particular situation is to have a discussion with us to learn about what treatments can provide you with the best results.
Many people choose skin rejuvenation treatments to eliminate or reduce the presence of lines and wrinkles. They can form around the eyes and mouth as well as across the forehead. Loose skin is the cause.
In the deeper layers of your skin is a substance called collagen. It is naturally produced by the body to keep the skin full and tight. Over time, the amount of collagen that your body makes will start to decline. This opens the door for a loosening of the skin. As your skin loosens, wrinkles will start to form. There will also be some sagging around the jowls. These are among the classic signs of aging that many people wish to reverse.
Elastin is another substance that is present in your skin for the purpose of giving it elasticity. It is what allows the skin to return to its normal shape when forces like pulling and stretching act on it. As with collagen, elastin levels decrease with age.
Another unwanted effect of aging is the presence of age spots, although these were more likely caused by exposure to the sun rather than the simple aging process. They form when melanin, which supplies pigment, begins to concentrate in spots.
With non-surgical skin rejuvenation methods such as chemical peels, you can break up and dissipate these concentrated areas of melanin that are causing those unwanted spots. This will cause the spots to go away. They will actually dry up and flake off very soon after the therapy.
You can also enjoy expert skin rejuvenation with non-surgical treatments such as facial fillers like Juvederm®. This popular injectable uses hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body, to help volumize your skin and keep it hydrated. Treatments like these can last as long as an entire year.
