3 Non-Surgical Ways to Rejuvenate the Face | Dr. Pugash
Are you looking for ways to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, or frown lines? How do you know whether facial rejuvenation is right for you? Well, if you stand in front of a mirror in a well-lit room and notice any of the following skin conditions, it might be time for you pamper your skin with a non-surgical skin conditioning treatment:
Discoloration: Hyperpigmentation and brown spots are a top cosmetic concern, especially for those who have enjoyed lots of time outdoors.
Lines and Wrinkles: Collagen creates the smooth, supple skin texture that we all take for granted in our younger years. However, collagen levels decline as we age, and this leads to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Uneven Skin Texture: Acne scarring, dry patches, eczema, and other chronic skin conditions can be a source of embarrassment, which affects our self-image and self-confidence.
What Are Your Options to Rejuvenate Your Face?
Vancouver plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Pugash, aided by Lesley Tennant, his aesthetic nurse, expertly offers several non-surgical treatments designed to turn back the hands of time and enhance the youthfulness and vitality of your skin.
Here are your three best non-surgical options:
1. Skin Conditioning
Dr. Pugash and Lesley can suggest treatment programs, including chemical peels, to improve your complexion, reduce fine lines, and eliminate brown spots.
2. Neuromodulators to Soften Wrinkles
For wrinkles caused by muscle contractions rather than loss of volume, neuromodulator injections usually are a better choice. Wrinkles caused by movement typically appear between the eyebrows, along the nose, and across the forehead. The following neuromodulator products reduce the target facial muscles’ ability to contract, resulting in softened wrinkles and smoother and younger-looking skin.
BOTOX® COSMETIC®: As a purified protein produced from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, BOTOX® COSMETIC® can be used to weaken muscles that create undesirable facial expressions and wrinkles. Almost immediately, you’ll look younger, more rested, and more youthful. Injected into strategic points on the face, BOTOX® COSMETIC® is often administered to the forehead and around the eyes. Treatment is quick and does not require any anesthesia or significant downtime.
Xeomin® and Dysport® Aesthetic: As alternative treatments to BOTOX® COSMETIC ®, Dr. Pugash will discuss the differences between these products with you and explore the best option to meet your personal needs.
3. Dermal Fillers to Restore Volume
Dermal filler treatment is an extremely popular way to refresh and revitalize facial skin. Dr. Pugash offers Restylane®, Perlane®, and Radiesse®, and they can be used to refine the contours of your face without the need for anesthesia or incisions. Cheeks starting to droop can also be perked up, as can the under-eye area and lips, providing an entirely natural-looking result.
Restylane® and Perlane®: Both are hyaluronic acid-based products used to plump the lips and smooth facial wrinkles and folds, with Perlane® providing longer-lasting results.
Radiesse®: Provides immediate volume and stimulates the body to regenerate more collagen for extended benefits.
SkinMedica: Offers a comprehensive line of extremely high-quality skin care and conditioning products loaded with proven skin rejuvenators.
Emervel: Provides a range of fillers tailored by Dr. Pugash to the specific needs of the patient.
Injectable therapy using dermal fillers can also be combined with surgical procedures, such as facelifts or brow lifts, for more transformative results.
Benefits of Non-Surgical Treatment
Many of Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery’s Vancouver patients choose non-surgical treatments to address signs of aging because they do not require anesthesia, incisions, downtime, or a lengthy recovery period. Treatment is quick, and in the case of BOTOX® COSMETIC® injections, you can schedule a lunchtime appointment and get back at the office afterward.
