Slowing Down Facial Aging without Surgery

Posted on February 28, 2017 by - Face Procedures, Nonsurgical Treatment

Are you interested in turning back the clock on facial aging — yet hesitant to undergo a surgical procedure? Dr. Carlos Chacon of Divino Plastic Surgery in San Diego has great news for you. Thanks to a variety of non-surgical products and treatments, he and his team can restore your youthful facial appearance without the need for incisions, anesthesia and recovery downtime. Read on to learn more about how Divino Plastic Surgery can slow down facial aging without surgery.

Restore Volume Lost to Age

The face tends to lose volume with age, which can accentuate deep facial folds and wrinkles. The structure of the face can look sunken or hollow. To address this, a primary consideration of rejuvenating the face is restoring healthy and youthful-looking volume. This can be accomplished with cosmetic injectables known as fillers. Products like Juvederm and Belotero can be injected into different points around the face and create fullness in the treated areas. Fillers are commonly used to plump up the cheeks, temples, lips, tear troughs and jawline.

Relax Muscles that Move and Create Lines

Another critical component of a non-surgical anti-aging treatment is to relax the facial muscles that regularly move and create lines. Neurotoxins like Botox are injected into specific facial muscles to temporarily “freeze” them; as a result, the overlying lines and wrinkles become less noticeable. Botox is commonly used to minimize crow’s feet, the lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead.

Improve the Surface of the Skin

The third component of rejuvenating aged skin without surgery is to improve the surface of the skin that may have sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles and other textural imperfections. Some of these imperfections are from years of sun exposure, smoking and other poor habits, whereas others develop because the skin loses collagen and elastin with age.

Treatments like microdermabrasion and chemical peels are great options to remove damaged layers of the skin; as new skin cells develop, the surface of the skin appears firmer and smoother. These treatments can help to stimulate the body to replenish lost collagen for smoother, firmer skin.
