One reason people sometimes avoid plastic surgery or a drastic cosmetic treatment is the cost. There are options for cosmetic treatments that can stay within your budget though and still make you look younger and more refreshed. Microdermabrasion, chemical peels, injectables like Botox, and fillers are all options that can all help you look younger and feel great about your appearance while staying within your budget.
Microdermabrasion is a fairly simple procedure that can remove various skin imperfections by exfoliating the skin. Uneven pigmentation can be removed leaving the skin looking tighter and younger.
Chemical peels are available in a range of strengths including superficial, medium, and deep. The peel chosen will be based on your specific situation and goals. A chemical peel can treat acne, rosacea, fine lines, and sun damage.
Injectables (Botox, Dysport)
Injectables like Botox and Dysport work by stopping the nerve signals that tell muscles to contract, which stops facial motions that cause wrinkles. An injection usually only takes 10 to 15 minutes and after you can continue with your day. The results of an injectable will typically last around three to four months.
Fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse)
Fillers like Juvederm and Radiesse eliminate wrinkles and folds by filling them in with a material that plumps up the area. They can also be used to add volume to lips or in the case of Juvederm Voluma to add volume to the cheeks. Frequently fillers are used to fill in the nasolabial folds, which can deepen with age.
A combination of treatments for your complexion like microdermabrasion and chemical peels with treatments for wrinkles and folds can get you a radiant and more youthful appearance. These treatments are all offered at our offices and our board-certified dermatologists can work with you to determine what the best treatments are for your particular appearance and goals.
