The aging process will affect each and every one of us as we get older. Skin will begin to droop and sag. Fat deposits will appear under the skin. A double chin might develop. Fine lines and wrinkles will start to etch the skin. And sun damage may lead to brown spots and other blemishes.
Eventually, your skin might start to tell your age—or even make you appear older than you actually are. If you’re not interested in extensive surgeries, anesthesia, and long recovery times, you’re in luck. You can still look younger by undergoing non-invasive procedures, like the ones described below.
Over time, fat starts to develop under the area of your chin, which creates the appearance of having more than one chin. Kybella is the first—and only—FDA-approved injection to treat submental fullness, which is commonly known as the double chin.
Kybella can effectively contour the chin area and improve your chin profile. Its active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring agent in the body that both breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. The fat cells in the area will be destroyed with Kybella, preventing them from storing or accumulating fat after your treatment sessions.
2. Mini facelift
A traditional facelift can make you appear several years younger. However, it is associated with high costs, anesthesia, and a long recovery period before final effects can be realized. A mini facelift, on the other hand, can provide similar desired outcomes, without the cost, invasiveness, and downtime.
It can improve sagging in the midface, remove wrinkles, reduce loose skin on the neck, reduce displaced fat, and eliminate jowling in the lower face in order to make you look younger and more refreshed. This in-office procedure is minimally invasive. Only local anesthesia and oral sedation are used. It is also more cost effective than a traditional facelift. Downtime is minimal and the results are long lasting.
Smartlipo is an FDA-approved minimally invasive procedure that uses the most advanced technology to effectively remove small unwanted fat pockets in many areas of the body, including the neck, arms, hips, back, and stomach. The benefits of Smartlipo include enhanced skin tightening, a slimmer contour, no anesthesia, and a short recovery period. By creating the ideal body shape that you’ve always dreamed of, you’ll feel more confident and refreshed with Smartlipo.
Getting Botox is a quick and easy way to temporarily reduce or eliminate deep facial wrinkles that appear between or on the sides of the eyes as well as those on the forehead.
The purified protein toxin is injected in the muscles of the upper face in order to freeze contractions that cause wrinkles. The resulting muscle relaxation will lead to softened facial wrinkles. Botox injections are quick and inexpensive; you can get back to your life without any downtime.
5. Dermal fillers
It’s important to note that Botox only works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in specific areas of the face. If crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles aren’t the issues you’re looking to tackle with non-invasive procedures, then consider dermal fillers instead. There are several dermal fillers to choose from, which offer different results.
For example, Juvederm is highly effective at correcting moderate and severe folds and wrinkles like nasolabial folds. Voluma XC, on the other hand, is used to add volume to the cheeks to make you look more youthful. Radiesse injections are used to both replenish lost volume in the face and stimulate natural collagen production. And Cellfina is used to improve the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs, helping you get your youthful body back.
