It’s officially the holiday season. With a brand-new year approaching, it’s hard to ignore the vivid signs of aging you see in the mirror—the fine lines around your eyes or lips, sun and age spots, and loosening skin around the cheeks and neck. Plastic surgery used to be the only option to improve the signs of aging, but now, non-surgical alternatives have taken the aesthetic industry by storm because of their effectiveness and convenience.
What is Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation?
As opposed to surgical methods such as facelift, eyelid surgery, or rhinoplasty, a non-surgical facial rejuvenation involves non-surgical procedures to reach similar results. Patients often choose non-surgical rejuvenation options because of the soft but noticeable results, less inconvenient downtime, cost, scarring, and other factors.
What Procedures Are Available?
At Bay Area Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide variety of skincare options to help heal and restore that natural radiance of your skin. Their leading brand of skincare is DefenAge®, a groundbreaking skincare solution that uses defensins, which can reprogram dormant cells within our bodies to promote newer, healthier, and more youthful-looking skin. DefenAge addresses loss of firmness, contour definition, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, dark spots, pigmentation, loss of moisture, rough texture, excessive oiliness, and more. Dr. Gray will help determine the best regime to help revitalize your skin,
Neuromodulators (Botox®, Xeomin®, Dysport®, and Jeauveau®)
Neuromodulators (such as Botox) are injectable products that have the ability to block signals in the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles and lines on the face. Neuromodulators have shown to be effective in treating frown lines and forehead lines and can provide a subtle lift to the brow, platysma bands in the neck, and upper lip. With a thorough consultation, Dr. Gray will help you decide the best option between these four types of neuromodulators.
Dermal fillers are injectable products that help restore volume loss in different areas of the face. Dr. Gray offers a variety of dermal fillers to help address many areas of the face. Fillers can help volume loss in the mid facial areas: lateral brow, upper cheeks, lower tear trough, and the transition area between the jaw and the chin. Dr. Gray typically recommends Radiesse® for these areas because Radiesse is composed of the same chemical as bone, for a more natural finish.
Dr. Gray offers Juvéderm® Ultra Plus™ to help augment the lips and other areas for beautiful, fuller lips and Beletoro® for the eye orbit where dark undereye circles and hollows are prevalent. Beletoro looks entirely natural, does not appear puffy, and can last up to a year. For patients that desire to augment sections of their nose without undergoing serious surgery, Dr. Gray can use fillers to provide a non-surgical rhinoplasty.
