Summary: There are plenty of ways to rejuvenate the face. That can make finding the right one for you challenging, even if you can rest assured that the right treatment for you is out there somewhere. That’s why today we’re looking at three different options that will help you rejuvenate your face under the right circumstances.
New Ways to Rejuvenate Your Face
We live in a golden age of youth. By that I mean that there are simply so many ways to rejuvenate your face. Whether you’re trying to keep lines and wrinkles under control or rehabilitate some age spots, there’s something out there that–likely–can work for you and your goals. Sometimes rejuvenating your face is really all about finding the right procedure or technique.
And there is no shortage of techniques and procedures. That’s why we’re looking at some of the most popular ways to rejuvenate your face that are available on the market today. Most of these procedures can be found at your local cosmetic surgery clinic or medical spa.
Still, finding the right procedure for you can be something of a challenge. There are just too many options! So today we’re going to take a look at some of the most popular facial rejuvenation options and, most importantly, how they differ. Because those differences are important. The reason so many techniques exist in the first place is because, often, patients have wildly individualized desires. You’ll want to consult with your cosmetic surgeon or medical professional in order to find out what’s going to work best for you. These descriptions are just going to scratch the surface, but they might give you something to think about (just a note: this article is intended for entertainment purposes only; always listen to your doctor).
Botox and Other Injectables
Perhaps the most famous of facial rejuvenation procedures is Botox. With millions of new patients undergoing injections every year, Botox has become something of a worldwide phenomenon. Botox works by interfering with a specific muscle group’s ability to contract–that contraction causes wrinkles, so Botox has the overall effect of smoothing the skin and making the face appear more youthful.
But Botox isn’t the only injectable out there. There is, in fact, an entirely different class of injectable called “dermal fillers.” These fillers are designed to replace volume lost via the aging process. Some of the more popular include:
- Juvederm: This injectable is used to help mitigate wrinkles around the mouth and throughout the face.
- Voluma: Specially formulated to help add volume to the cheeks, Voluma is the perfect way to help address that “sagging” part of your face.
- Bellafill: Most dermal fillers are temporary, but Bellafill has been shown to last over five years, making it the longest lasting filler on the market today.
And that’s just the short list. Add Botox to the list and you can quickly see why injectables are a popular means of eliminating lines and wrinkles. Figuring out which filler is best for you will often require a consultation with your plastic or cosmetic surgeon.
If you’re more concerned with your skin looking “worn out” than with lines and wrinkles, HydraFacial might be an excellent option for your facial rejuvenation means. HydraFacial is a modified form of dermabrasion. Instead of using friction to clear out your pores and refresh your skin, HydraFacial uses fluid–a specially formulated set of fluids that refreshes your skin.
HydraFacial is a popular option for clearing out pores, minimizing age spots and helping with discoloration of the face. It also helps your face feel good again. For many patients, the combination of rejuvenation and refreshment is hard to beat. That’s one of the reasons that HydraFacial is among the most popular facial rejuvenation options on the market today.
For patients who want to get rid of age spots, fine lines, and maybe even acne scars and other minor imperfections, Microneedling is a common option. Many medical spas and cosmetic surgery clinics will even specialize in a particular Microneedling device, such as SkinPen. Microneedling does take some recovery time, mostly because it creates significantly red skin.
Essentially, a SkinPen (or other microneedling device) makes thousands of microscopic pokes in your skin. There’s no damage done, really, but your body is tricked into activating a healing response. Those healing chemicals released by your body are instead used to rejuvenate your skin. This can help your face appear significantly more radiant and youthful.
Whatever way you decide to rejuvenate your face, it’s nice to know that you have options. Those options might be diverse, but that just means that there very well could be a treatment for whatever ails you. Knowing all these ways to rejuvenate your face could help you determine the best way to move forward, but you should always discuss your treatment options with your cosmetic or plastic surgeon.
