What is non-surgical facial rejuvenation?


At some point, the vivid signs of ageing – little wrinkles, age spots, loose skin – become impossible to ignore in the mirror. Once upon a time, there were almost no options available for a person to soften these effects without going under the knife.

The story is very different nowadays.

Also called a liquid facelift, non-surgical facial rejuvenation is an extremely popular cosmetic treatment that is used to reverse the effects of ageing on the skin, without using invasive surgical methods. These procedures are comparatively more affordable these days and the recovery time is also lesser, making them more suitable for the current fast-paced lives.

What is targeted in non-surgical facial rejuvenation?

While liquid facelifts might not be as dramatically effective as surgical facelifts, these can be extremely effective against the following:

  • Loss of face volume
  • Sagging skin
  • Formation of expression lines
  • Brown spots and pigmentation
  • Visible veins
  • Other symptoms of general skin deterioration.

Top 3 non-surgical procedures for facial rejuvenation

  1. Botox

The use of Botox (a cosmetic form of botulinum toxin) has significantly grown over the years due to its effectiveness. Traditionally, they have been used to treat migraines, excessive sweating, and reduce muscle spasms. These injections temporarily paralyse and relax the facial muscles associated with wrinkles, which temporarily reduces and eliminates expression lines, creases, and crow’s feet. As a result, your skin appears much younger, smoother, and refreshed.

While Botox injections are extremely quick and easy to use, the administration should only be carried out under expert supervision. Else, the adverse effects include an unnatural look, muscle weakness, facial pain, etc.

  1. Soft tissue fillers

Dermal fillers have a different course of action than Botox. These fillers work as structural support for the skin, negating the effects of collagen loss. Collagen, which mostly occurs in the skin around the eyes, nose, cheeks, and jawline, decreases with age. As a result, the skin loses volume and wrinkles appear on the face. Injecting soft tissue fillers plumps these areas temporarily, allowing your lips and skin to appear fuller, and in some cases, reverse the appearance of scar tissues.

As is the case with Botox, fillers should also be administered under expert supervision to avoid complications.

  1. Chemical peels

With sun exposure, acne, and lifestyle choices, the naturally smooth and even complexion of skin takes a beating and can make the skin look patchy and uneven. A chemical peel literally peels away the dead skin cells, rejuvenating the skin in the process. As a result, you will notice that your skin appears smoother and fairer.

While chemical peels can be self-administered, a smart idea will be to consult a cosmetic surgery clinic to avoid allergies or similar reactions.
