3 Non-Surgical Ways to Rejuvenate the Face

Surgery isn’t the right option for every patient. When you don’t have time for downtime or a long recovery, you still have rejuvenation options. Non-surgical treatments help many of our patients to avoid or delay surgery.

If surgery isn’t right for you right now, keep reading to learn about three popular non-surgical treatments available at Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery.

Botox – Ann Arbor’s Favorite Cosmetic Treatment

One of the most popular non-surgical treatments in the U.S. (and at our practice) is Botox, a neuromodulator that helps to relax the muscles that cause expression wrinkles.

Why is Botox so popular? There are many reasons why patients turn to this treatment again and again.

  • Fast Results – You’ll start to see results in 2-3 days from treatment.
  • Quick Treatment – A typical Botox treatment takes less than 30 minutes. Come in on your lunch break!
  • No Downtime – No downtime is needed after treatment. Return to your daily activities without delay.
  • Long-Lasting – Botox results are long-lasting. Results typically last for about 4 months and can be maintained with a quick follow-up injection 3-4 times each year.

If you have smile lines, frown lines, or any other dynamic wrinkles, ask us about Botox.

Chemical Peels – Exfoliate Your Way to Better Skin

Does your skin need a fresh start? Few treatments can compete with the deep exfoliation of a professional chemical peel. This treatment improves the appearance of the skin by smoothing wrinkles, treating acne, boosting collagen, and fading hyperpigmentation.

Chemical peels are applied to the surface of the skin, where they loosen the bonds between skin cells and gently remove them. By removing old, damaged skin, a chemical peel reveals fresh, new skin. As the skin heals, it regenerates to restore a more youthful appearance.

Light chemical peels require no downtime and can be performed regularly. Our deeper peels may require some special skincare and a few days of healing but can yield dramatic results in a single treatment.

Microneedling – More Collagen for Youthful Skin

Collagen is a building block for healthy, youthful skin. As you age, the collagen levels in your skin decrease leading to wrinkles and sagging. Restore collagen levels in your skin with microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy.

A microneedling device uses small needles to open channels in the skin, initiating a healing response that leads to collagen growth. This treatment can dramatically revise the skin’s appearance without downtime or surgery.
