How is Facial Rejuvenation Done?
We perform nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures using Botox®, fillers, chemical peels, and more. These treatments help smooth, firm, or plump the skin on your face, neck, and lips.
- Botox uses a special toxin to stop a muscle’s movement temporarily.
- Dermal fillers plump the face once injected under the skin.
- Both Botox and dermal fillers can smooth the appearance of wrinkles.
- With chemical peels, we use a chemical solution to treat wrinkles, smooth the skin, even tone, and reduce the appearance of scars.
Our expert team works to understand your aesthetic goals and collaborates with you to design a plan to work toward achieving them.
Who is a Candidate for Facial Rejuvenation?
Patients looking to improve the appearance of their skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles, or plump areas of the face, lips, or neck may benefit from these nonsurgical options. Nonsurgical facial reanimation procedures are less invasive than surgical options and require no incisions (cuts). These treatments offer better options for patients who might experience complications from going under anesthesia (where your anesthesiologist will put you in a sleep-like state).
Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological condition should not get Botox. In addition, patients with suppressed immune systems should seek a consultation prior to pursuing fillers as a treatment and may not be candidates.
What to Expect ...
If you receive Botox or fillers
Your provider will use a needle to inject the material into your face during the procedure. These injections generally do not hurt but may create a pinching sensation. These procedures take about 15 minutes to complete. In the case of Botox, you may see small bumps that look like mosquito bites immediately following injection, but these will go away after a few minutes. It can take up to two weeks to see full results. Results last for three to six months.
During a chemical peel
Your provider will clean your skin and then apply a chemical agent. This agent may sting a bit. Your provider will then use another chemical to neutralize and remove the solution.
You may receive a light, medium, or deep chemical peel — each has a different chemical solution and technique. Light and medium peels take less than an hour, while deep peels can take up to 90 minutes. For deep peels, you may go under anesthesia. Depending on the depth of the peel, you may experience redness, scarring, or a change in skin tone. These peels may be combined with other surgeries to provide the best overall result for your goals
Facial rejuvenation procedures are generally quick, and doctors can perform them in their offices. You can go home shortly after the procedure and can generally drive yourself.
