Facial Rejuvenation hasn’t been as easy, simple and fast as it has been in the early 1950s. Back then, the most popular option that one has is plastic surgery. As such, patients who are below 50 years old can’t undergo any anti-aging procedure because the methods are far too drastic for the early signs of aging. They all have to wait until they are aged 50 or older to even consider cosmetic surgery.
But thanks to the advancements in facial rejuvenation, cosmetic or plastic surgery is no longer the only option today. As a matter of fact, it’s the last option that one has to consider in restoring his or her youthful look. The innovative changes in dermatology allows for less invasive approaches such as Botox and the use of dermal fillers. Both of them are non-surgical methods that cause less downtime and provide faster results. What’s more, younger people can try it. Those who are in their late thirties and early forties can very well take advantage of the newest facial rejuvenation methods to combat the early signs of aging.
Even the type of dermal fillers used for the face has evolved over time. But generally speaking, all of these substances are injected into the skin to restore the normal structure of the face and in the process, reduce the signs of aging. Dermal fillers are effective against the effects of sun exposure and smoking, although it is mostly used to replenish collagen to bring back the lost elasticity of the skin.
Dermal fillers are used to erase the wrinkles appearing on the lips, nasolabial folds, corners of the mouth, forehead, and the other edge of the nostrils. It may also be used to correct the depressions and scars in the skin caused by acne, trauma, and certain diseases.
Botox is yet another popular option when it comes to facial rejuvenation. Botox is used to address wrinkles caused by dynamic movements and static muscles. Botox affects nerve endings and interfere with the release of the substance called acetylcholine. It prevents muscles from contracting, which will then result to less prominent wrinkles.
Botox is used to erase frown lines, crow’s feet, ad forehead wrinkles. Like dermal fillers, Botox is a non-surgical procedure which benefits can last from 3 to 6 months. Botox works best when combined with other anti-aging procedures.
Although plastic surgery is no longer the first choice when it comes to facial rejuvenation, it is still being used today. As a matter of fact, it is the most preferred option for people who want lasting results. Cosmetic surgery is recommended for people who can no longer be benefitted by the non-invasive procedures listed above. Your doctor will let you know if this is the best choice for you.
The advances in facial rejuvenation gives people more options when it comes to anti-aging. These of course don’t take the place of healthy living, which will naturally make your skin look beautiful and radiant for many years. Taking care of your body by protecting it from the sun and avoiding unhealthy habits like smoking is still your best defense against aging.
