5 Ways You Can Look 5 Years Younger without Surgery

Woman looking upWe seem to be surrounded by images of impossibly young models at every turn. This perfection obsession is only magnified by the influx of smartphones and selfies that cause us to analyze and critique every sign of age we see on our faces. Thankfully, looking your best has never been easier than with these five nonsurgical anti-aging treatments.

1. Thermage®

Thermage® is a completely painless, nonsurgical radiofrequency treatment that delivers tighter, more youthful-looking skin after just one treatment. A handheld device gently heats the deeper layers of the skin to increase collagen production, promoting a visible improvement in firmness and texture.

2. Fraxel®

Patients love the Fraxel® Dual Laser because it addresses a multitude of skin concerns in one treatment session. This patented laser has the ability to operate on two different wavelengths, each of which addresses different complexion concerns such as wrinkles, acne scars and skin tone.

3. BOTOX®

BOTOX® Cosmetic took the world by storm when it was first introduced in 2002, and its popularity hasn’t let up for a second. BOTOX® softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the underlying facial muscles that contribute to their development.

4. Injectable Fillers

Inectable fillers are ideal for addressing deeper lines that are due to loss of volume rather than muscle movement. HA fillers such as Restylane® can correct moderate to severe wrinkles such as the laugh lines (nasolabial folds) that run from nose to mouth.

5. Chemical Peels and Facials

Chemical peels and facials are a great way to achieve a more vibrant, youthful complexion without ever facing a needle. Peels remove the dull top layer of the skin, and facials can battle blemishes and leave skin glowing. Either or both can be a great addition to your existing skincare routine.
