There are many ways besides aesthetic surgical procedures to enhance your beauty. The skin is the largest organ of the human body. Chronological aging, unfavorable genetics, environmental pollutants, sun damage, and smoking are some of the factors that contribute to the appearance and health of your skin.
As important as any facial surgery is the rejuvenation of the skin. Many options exist today to rejuvenate wrinkled, hollow looking or sun-damaged skin including: peels, intense pulsed light, laser procedures, wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers. Each of these options offer a unique treatment strategy for one’s skin.
Rather than relying on only one technique, often a combination of different treatments works best, depending on the type and severity of your condition. The laser can remove unwanted dark pigmentation and capillaries without discernible downtime. Wrinkle relaxers can help smooth the skin and create a more youthful appearance. Our Registered Nurse will talk extensively about all types of skin rejuvenation options available to you, including discussing the techniques for administering any treatments and recommendations for combinations of treatment methods suitable for your desired look.
Non-surgical and laser options available at our Santa Barbara office include:
Wrinkle relaxers, such as Dysport, Botox and Xeomin. These treatments are injected into the skin to temporarily improve the look of lines and wrinkles with no downtime.
Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse. These injectable gels help to gently reverse the signs of aging in frown lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet and thinning lips. They also help to restore volume in the face and lips.
Lasers, such as iPixel, Pixel, Intense Pulse Light and Erbium laser are designed to help improve the appearance of sun damage, aging and pigmentation marks on the skin. Different lasers provide different treatment schedules and healing times. Laser hair removal also helps to painlessly and permanently remove unwanted hair growth, for a smooth, youthful appearance.
Skin care products, such as Glytone, Avène and EltaMD, help to protect the skin and repair damage caused by the sun and aging.
