Find yourself unable to ignore the visible signs of aging on your face? Restore your youthful glow with nonsurgical cosmetic procedures that don’t involve going under the knife! Here at Oakland Hills Dermatology, we strive not only to make you feel great on the inside but also on the outside! We offer a variety of treatments and packages to improve signs of aging, skin tone, and overall appearance.
Here are a few options we offer to help your outer appearance look as young as you feel on the inside.
Probably the best-known noninvasive procedure to fight off aging, botox involves a small painless injection that relaxes the muscle tension that causes wrinkles. It’s a fairly simple procedure and could have you look younger in a few days. While the effect does fade, you’ll only have to go in two or three times a year to keep up the appearance. A little Botox can go a long way to making your face and neck look smoother, younger, and wrinkle-free.
The full effects of botox can take 2-14 days to fully develop and can last up to 6 months.
Patients may resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. Common side effects, as with all injectable products, include swelling, bruising, bleeding, and itching at the injection site. Most side effects resolve themselves naturally within 24 hours.
Juvederm and Other Cosmetic Fillers
As we age, significant volume loss in the face causes drooping, sagging, and wrinkles. Facial fillers can help replace this volume, giving you a youthful and refreshed look while diminishing facial lines and wrinkles. Fillers are injected into key spots to help provide some volume that fills out sags and reduces wrinkles. This is great for adding some perk to your cheeks and filling out your lips.
A Juvederm injection can often take less than an hour, has very few side effects, and the results are both quick and long-lasting — sometimes up to two years. Think of what you could do with two extra years of youth.
Beyond Juvederm, there are other cosmetic fillers designed to produce collagen around your eyes and lips, reducing eye bags and leaving your smile looking full and plump.
If you miss the radiant glow of your youthful self, then a chemical peel might be right for you. A chemical peel is a technique used to improve and smooth the texture of your skin. The peel gently removes the outermost layer of the skin, leaving you with completely fresh, untouched skin. Results include even-toned, smooth, tightened, and refreshed skin. Peels are most often done on the face, but can also be used on the neck, chest, and hands. Chemical peels can be used to treat acne scars, uneven pigmentation, rough skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and sun spots/damage.
While patients can return to normal activities immediately after treatment, the skin is sensitive and should be makeup free and protected from the sun for at least 2-4 days. Most patients begin to experience peeling after 48 hours, which resolves itself in 2-5 days.
You don’t have to let age and time win. Youthful looks don’t have to be wasted on the young. If you have an energetic, vibrant soul, then let your appearance reflect that joy and charm. Set up an appointment with us today and get started on making a younger you.
