The face, contrary to what the saying goes, is not a reflection of the soul, but of your age and lifestyle. By a natural process, our skin will lose firmness as the years go by. It cannot be prevented. With age, our body produces less collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and other organic substances with structural functions in the skin.
If, in addition, our habits are not the healthiest, due to poor diet, smoking or excessive sun exposure, blemishes, skin tone, skin vitality and wrinkles will make us look older. Photoaging multiplies the effect of aging.
Everyone wants to maintain a youthful appearance, or at least not look aged. We have already mentioned on numerous occasions that in order to have healthy skin it is necessary to work in a multidisciplinary way, through physical exercise, nutrition, care and also aesthetics.
Benefits of non-surgical treatments
Any intervention requiring surgery, no matter how minor, requires anesthesia and involves a more or less painful and disabling recovery process. The evolution of aesthetic medicine now allows us to opt for non-invasive and painless treatments with very satisfactory results.
This allows us to enjoy almost immediate effects as soon as we leave the clinic and an immediate recovery, without side effects or very slight ones, such as redness or some sensitivity.
Facial rejuvenation work must be able to reverse or disguise some of the natural effects of aging in different areas of the face, such as loss of volume, increased flaccidity, expression lines, treat blemishes and in general combat wrinkles.
For this purpose, state-of-the-art aesthetic equipment is used to apply active plant and animal ingredients that enhance the synthesis of collagen and elastin, allowing the elasticity of the treated area to be restored.
Generally, non-surgical treatments for the face are of local application, so it is possible to adapt them according to the needs of each person, even being able to combine different treatments to obtain even better results.
The only drawback of these non-surgical treatments is that a single session is not enough and that, in some cases, the results are not permanent, so the treatment must be repeated from time to time.
Treatments for the face without surgery
Before starting to work on facial rejuvenation, it must be clear that it is very important to put yourself in the hands of a good professional, who will perform an analysis of the needs of the skin, to make a diagnosis and possible solutions.
Among the most common and demanded treatments to rejuvenate the face, due to their good results, are transdermal electroporation, facial peels, hyaluronic acid injections, facial radiofrequency, laser and botox.
Virtual mesotherapy is transdermal electroporation, a technology that uses electromagnetic waves to temporarily create aqueous channels in the skin to introduce active ingredients to deep layers. This possibility opens the way to obtain great results thanks to the effects of the active ingredients used.
The skin can be rejuvenated by obtaining greater hydration, luminosity, reducing wrinkles and expression lines, providing volume and diluting facial blemishes.
Conventional mesotherapy, the one that is injected, can also provide different benefits, such as improved hydration and cell regeneration. Ideally, a combination of both treatments should be achieved.
Hyaluronic acid has very good publicity, but it is well deserved. It is used as a dermal filler, to eliminate flaccidity and tone areas such as dark circles under the eyes or bags.
Normally, the product injected is usually a combination of hyaluronic acid with vitamins and antioxidants, although it will depend on the area to be treated and the desired effects. The purpose of hyaluronic acid is to activate collagen synthesis and cell regeneration, which will obviously have an impact on facial skin rejuvenation.
It is a very simple treatment, which does not require any recovery. However, hyaluronic acid is an organic product, present in the human body, so it will gradually be absorbed and its effect will disappear. So it will be necessary to inject it again.
Facial peeling can be used to combat acne and blemishes on the face. It is a very simple method that consists of a chemical exfoliation of the most superficial layers of the skin.
In this way, the first layer is removed to obtain a new rejuvenated skin, with better tone and without blemishes.
Botox injections are often used to combat expression wrinkles appearing on the forehead, between the eyebrows and crow’s feet. What this medical product achieves is to relax the muscles of the face in a natural way. It is not a permanent treatment, so it is usually recommended to re-inject after about 6 months.
It is also possible to work on facial rejuvenation by means of tensor threads, although this treatment is much more invasive than the previous ones. The tensor threads improve the flaccidity of the facial skin by introducing fine threads that are hooked to the subcutaneous tissue and stimulate the structure of the skin for a lifting effect.
They are often used to tighten the jowls, neck and also to lift the cheekbones.
Finally, facial radiofrequency is used to activate collagen production. The heat transmitted by the equipment causes this action. We can use it to improve skin tightness in different areas such as the forehead, cheekbones, neck and décolleté and the line under the eyes.
As we have already indicated above, the combination of any of these treatments will result in better and longer lasting results. In any case, it is necessary to turn to professionals who can recommend the best options to achieve facial rejuvenation without surgery.
