Summer is a popular time of year for hosting special events since the weather is perfect for outdoor venues. Be it a wedding or another type of gathering, many already have their invitations or know they are on the way. Some may wonder what types of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures to consider before their event to provide them with a youthful boost.
And there are some excellent choices on the aesthetic menu.
Non-operative facial rejuvenation treatments can be quite appealing because they are cost effective and there is limited to no downtime. While these treatments are minimally invasive, it’s important to note that they are still considered medical treatments so it’s always recommended to seek these procedures in a medical setting. Many plastic surgery offices have their aesthetic nurses performing these treatments.
Registered nurses who are trained in aesthetics have comprehensive knowledge of the facial anatomy which is vital for optimal outcomes. They are also skilled in an array of areas for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. It’s important to partner with a medical professional about the treatment(s) one is interested in a few weeks before an event for perfect timing.
Botox, Voluma, Juvederm, and Kybella have single handedly changed the world of aesthetics. While Botox smooths out fine lines and softens wrinkles, Voluma adds fullness to the cheek area which naturally diminishes with aging. While the effects of Botox last a few months or more, for some patients, Voluma can last up to two years.
For the lower portions of the facial canvas, Juvederm lessens the appearance of marionette lines, also known to many as parenthesis around the mouth. Juvederm can add volume, suppressing these lines for six months to a year.
Kybella addresses submental fullness, destroying fat cells located on the underside of the chin. As long as a patient maintains their weight the visual results are considered permanent.
There is little to no downtime with the above injections.
While cosmetic injections offer excellent results, chemical peels address skin texture. A chemical peel can help with the following skin concerns:
- Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
- Lessen the appearance of age spots
- Even out skin tone
- Soften skin texture
A series of light chemical peels can provide optimal results.
This procedure also enhances the skin and is considered excellent for exfoliating the top layers of dead skin cells and removing vellus hair (peach fuzz). Dermaplaning can be a solo treatment or be done prior to a light chemical peel. If combined, the full treatment takes under an hour. And since there is no downtime, patients can resume their day.
When done in tandem, the chemical peel product will have deeper penetration.
Dermaplaning leaves facial skin baby soft and smooth for excellent makeup application. Dermaplaning has become so popular, patients receive a treatment on a monthly basis.
There are a host of nonsurgical treatments to help prepare individuals for a special occasion. And if there is none on the horizon, invest in oneself for a more youthful and luminous glow.
