Many of us want a younger-looking face, but the downtime while recovering from plastic surgery can be a dealbreaker. Whether you cannot get the time off of work, or you prefer to use your vacation time to travel rather than resting in bed for a couple of weeks, the good news is you can still pursue facial rejuvenation without sacrificing too much free time.
Among the procedures that Facial Aesthetic Concepts offers:
Laser treatments are popular among people who want to address irregular pigmentation and minimize their wrinkles. While Facial Aesthetic Concepts offers multiple laser treatments (such as fractional CO2 resurfacing and PDT) with their own respective strengths, intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is the best choice if you want to leave the office immediately without any visible side effects of treatment.
Microneedling utilizes tiny needles to prick the skin and, in turn, spur collagen production. This increase of collagen can go a long way toward filling in wrinkles, lines and acne scars, making your face look both smoother and younger. Most patients only report experiencing mild discomfort during the treatment, and they typically return to work the same day.
This exfoliation process gently works away the top layer of your skin to reveal the new skin just below. Often times, wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne and hyperpigmentation will go away along with that top layer.
Aside from needing to stay out of the sun for the following 10 days, recovery is not significant. Just be mindful of protecting your tender skin and you should be able to continue working and socializing as normal.
Botox and Injectable Fillers
Botox and fillers are excellent ways to painlessly fill the lines that form on your face for several months to over a year, depending on which filler is used. Beyond Botox, Facial Aesthetic Concepts carries Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse, and can discuss the benefits of each during a consultation.
Best of all, it takes all of a few moments to receive an injectable treatment and then you are good to go. We advise you to take it easy with exercise and alcohol for the next 24-48 hours, but beyond that, you can go about your normal life as the fillers actively settle into your skin.
It is possible to make significant improvements to your face without having to take yourself out of commission for a while. To discuss any of these procedures, please email the team at Facial Aesthetic Concepts to set up a consultation.
