Now that the cold, dry weather is coming to an end and things are beginning to warm up, it’s time to prepare your skin for the next seasonal change. Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal, and procedures such as laser facial resurfacing, Botox, or dermal fillers are high on the list of options to refresh, rejuvenate, and refine your appearance. Since sun exposure tends to be more limited in the spring, healing from a laser procedure can be easier. It’s also a great time to consider neuromodulators or dermal fillers to help improve the appearance of wrinkles, lines, etc., so that you can enjoy a makeup-free spring into summer.
Laser Skin Resurfacing for Age Spots, Acne, and Scaring
Laser skin resurfacing can treat a host of skin concerns, making it one of the most popular cosmetic treatments out there. This procedure involves the use of a specialized medical laser to gently exfoliate the skin. During your treatment, laser light penetrates the surface of the skin and breaks down aged and discolored skin cells. The body will then begin to procedure new healthy cells, which will effectively repair your skin, creating a smoother, brighter-looking complexion. Laser skin resurfacing also helps boost the body’s production of collagen, a protein responsible for keeping the skin supple and youthful.
Laser skin resurfacing can treat a number of skin concerns, including:
- Wrinkles and Loose Skin
Botox® For Minimizing Facial Wrinkles
For patients seeking to minimize crow’s feet around the eyes, smooth lines across the forehead, and wrinkles between the brows, Botox® is a highly effective solution. These age-defying injections temporarily paralyze the muscles whose movements cause facial creases, creating a more relaxed expression. Many patients tend to wear less makeup throughout the warmer months; Botox® can help boost your confidence so you can go makeup-free.
- Forehead Wrinkles
- Crow’s Feet
- Marionette Lines and Corners of the Mouth
- Forehead Frown Lines
- Smoker’s Lines
- Neck Bands
- Sagging Brows
Dermal Fillers for Restoring Lost Facial Volume and A Smooth Complexion
In addition to wrinkles, many people are concerned about the loss of facial volume or textures in their skin. Injectable fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane® can combat facial wrinkles and folds and restore lost facial volume due to age. They are injected below the skin, where they hydrate and plump the area. They can also help fill in spots of past acne scars. Composed of hyaluronic acid (a natural substance found throughout the body), fillers pose a very low risk of allergic reactions and dissolve naturally as your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid. Since filler results can last from 4 months to a year, a well-timed spring treatment can last you throughout the summer.
Dermal fillers can:
- Correct moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and skin folds
- Increase fullness in the lips, cheeks, chin, under-eye hollows, jawline, and hands
- Correct acne scars on the cheek
