Minimally Invasive Procedures
Submitted by steven on Thu, 08/18/2011 - 12:27
Your skin’s appearance is affected by aging in many ways over time. Smoking habits, sun exposure, and repeated facial expressions cause lines and wrinkles, which can ultimately give you a tired or sad appearance.
Unfortunately no matter how well you take care of your skin, the amount of Collagen and Elastin slowly diminishes. As a result your skin becomes less elastic, like a rubber band that has been slowly stretched beyond its ability to return to its original shape.
Also, the fat under your skin, which gives your face its shape and gives your skin a tight youthful appearance, slowly thins and descends with age. Taking good care of your skin can slow many of these changes, but signs of aging inevitably occur.
Fortunately, there are many ways to look more refreshed and youthful without spending a great deal of money or time recovering. With popular minimally invasive office treatments, there are no restrictions to normal activities, and in most instances sedation and anesthesia are not required.
The most common minimally invasive procedures that I perform are Botox® and Dysport® injections, Juvederm® injectable filler, and autologous fat grafting.
These procedures are excellent cost effective ways to combat the obvious signs of aging, and they can leave you looking noticeably younger quickly. The trade off is that none of these procedures are capable of the dramatic results, which can be achieved through surgery.
