We’re fortunate to live in a time when non-invasive methods allow us to age gracefully without having to take drastic measures. Investing in a facial rejuvenation routine today can help you maintain healthy and youthful-looking skin for years to come. At Oakville Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skincare, we believe in educating our patients on how to do just that. In this article we share our favourite must-do non-invasive treatments.
Treatments with neuromodulators such as BOTOX COSMETIC®, and hyaluronic acid fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, work hand-in-hand to smooth expression lines and replace lost volume. The result is a refreshed and relaxed appearance within the span of a 30-45 minute treatment. The good news is that these treatments not only correct existing aging concerns, but they can also prevent them from developing further. Some of the aging concerns that can be addressed with injectables include:
- Frown lines
- Forehead wrinkles
- Lip lines
- Volume loss in the lips, cheeks, under the eyes, and at the temple
- Brow asymmetry
Thermage® Skin Tightening.
In order to improve the integrity and quality of the skin, particularly addressing looseness and static wrinkles (the fine lines that are not the results of expression), a skin tightening treatment should be considered. Thermage® is a gold standard device with over one million treatments performed worldwide. The technology works by delivering heat energy into the dermis layer of the skin where a rejuvenating response from the skin will take place. The heat activates the synthesis of new collagen and improves the quality of the existing connective tissue. The best thing is: there is no recovery involved with a Thermage® treatment. Routine activities can be resumed immediately following the procedure. The results of a Thermage® treatment are progressive over the weeks and months post procedure as the new collagen is formed. With just one treatment, the skin is noticeably tighter and smoother.
One of the safest and most effective ways to repair skin discolouration that arises from sun damage is with a fotofacial. Pulses of light send heat energy into the skin, targeting pigmented cells and dilated vessels that lead to brown spots and facial redness. Over a series of sessions, the skin tone is clarified, resulting in a beautifully bright and luminous complexion. Once an initial treatment series is completed, regular twice-yearly treatments can be scheduled to maintain an even skin tone.
Medical Grade Skincare.
The last important step in taking years off your appearance is using high quality medical-grade skincare at home. What you use on your skin every day makes a significant impact on its health and beauty. Medical-grade skincare products are designed to deliver high concentrations of active ingredients in order to achieve therapeutic results for the skin. This extends the results of your in-office treatments, thereby protecting your investment. Oakville Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skincare has a selection of results-driven product lines chosen for their superior quality and benefits to the skin. We welcome you to book a complimentary consultation with Bethany, our medical aesthetician, to see which products are best suited to your skin’s needs.
So there you have it: our top choices for non-invasive facial rejuvenation. Maintaining fresh, dewy and youthful skin is simply a matter of planning ahead.
