There are many reasons why people cannot have plastic surgery. Some people, for example, cannot go under anesthesia due to health concerns. Other people just cannot afford the high costs of plastic surgery. Regardless of the reason, this does not mean you must give up on perfecting your appearance. There are plenty of effective, non-surgical options for a younger appearance. There are also plenty of laser options for a slimmer, contoured figure.
One of the most well-known known facial treatments, Botox is an injectable protein that corrects frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and neck bands. Botox is highly desirable because it requires zero downtime. Restylane injections are great for smoothing fine lines as well as filling out the cheeks and lips. Another type of injection is the Radiesse injection. This calcium based gel replenishes volume in the face and hands by producing collagen. The results are immediate and last between 9 and 15 months. Although the Fat Transfer Procedure (FTP) is not as painless as the previously mentioned injections, it remains a nonsurgical procedure that adds volume to the face. Local anesthetic is used in areas with excess fat, such as the thighs. A needle with a cannula extracts fat from this location. This fat is then injected into the desired areas. Through a combination of fillers and wrinkle relaxers, the LIV Liquid Lift is a nonsurgical facelift option that provides results similar to a traditional facelift. Injections are chosen specific to your problem areas and are injected in layers across the face. This layering technique ensures a long lasting effect (6-12 months). Besides eliminating the need to go under the knife, the LIV Liquid Lift has many benefits. The procedure is painless and requires only one day of downtime. If you are looking for deep, long lasting wrinkle correction, you should consider Sculptra. This is one of the only injections that will not yield immediate results. The Sculptra that is injected into the face actually produces collagen for up to six months, leaving skin looking smooth for as many as two years.
In addition to an array of injections, we also offer laser treatments for aging skin. Laser resurfacing is completed through a process called Lasabrasion which rids the face of hair, wrinkles, sunspots, acne scars, and more. Some precancerous growths can also be removed with Lasabrasion.
In addition to these facial treatments, we also offer a Vaser liposuction option for those who seek liposuction but are unable or lack desire to go under the knife. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia only and has a recovery time of four days before patients are okay to return to work. You will have to wait another two weeks before exercising again.
