Lift Your Skin and Your Spirits With These Wrinkle Treatments

While we might have loathed our baby-fat faces as kids, as we age and lose facial volume, we might long for the days of those round, cherub Dermal Fillers faces once more. While nature might not want to play nice, there are ways to combat good old Mother Nature when she doesn’t want to cooperate. If you want to spruce up your appearance and get back the fullness you once had, there are several skin tightening options for you to consider.

Nonsurgical Skin Tightening

For people who are either new to cosmetic surgery or don’t want to commit to more invasive treatments, nonsurgical skin tightening options are usually the best. Here are some of the nonsurgical ways to achieve the look you want.

1. Dermal fillers

You may have seen TV commercials for popular products like Restylane or Radiesse. These cosmetic fillers are injected into the skin to fight deep-rooted laugh lines, create plumper lips and soften other facial wrinkles. This treatment is particularly good for preventing facial jowls.

The process is simple and often takes no more than 10-15 minutes. Before we administer the facial injections, we may numb the site first to make the experience even more painless and easy. One plus to getting dermal fillers is that the treatment is so fast and there’s no downtime, so you could virtually have this done during your lunch break and return to work or your daily activities immediately after!

2. Laser skin tightening

Whether it’s the years of lounging out in the sun or just the normal tick of time passing by, it’s inevitable that skin will lose its elasticity. However, laser skin tightening treatments offer the growth of new blood vessels, as well as collagen and elastin production. Through the use of magnetic pulse and radio frequency, the self-repair response is triggered within the body to help improve your skin’s overall appearance.

Laser skin tightening promises that you will see an immediate difference even after only one treatment, with a noticeable difference after the third treatment. About 6-8 treatments are recommended depending on your skin’s condition. Plus, with no recovery time and a pain-free experience, this is often the popular choice for those looking for an aesthetic makeover.

Surgical Skin Tightening

If you’re looking for a more permanent and dramatic dermatological improvement, dermal fillers and laser skin tightening might not be enough. We offer an array of surgical options from eyelid/eyebrow lifts to facelifts. Surgical skin tightening is usually done under general anesthesia and takes a couple hours. Unlike with nonsurgical treatments, this isn’t a lunch break type of procedure, and with any surgery there will also be a recovery period following your treatment. You’ll also come back after a few days so we can make sure everything is healing properly. Facelifts have become a common procedure for getting the best skin tightening results.

If you’re looking for an anti-aging treatment that will perk up your skin and turn back the hands of time, then call us today for a consultation at (978) 475-9230. We’ll help you find a treatment that works with you, your lifestyle and your budget!
