What Are Some Non-Invasive Options for Facial Rejuvenation?

If you are interested in a refreshed, healthy appearance, you may benefit from exploring non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments with Dr. Tina West. Several highly effective options are available for reversing age and sun exposure-related skin changes, including wrinkles, loose skin, and uneven skin tone.

If you are not sure which procedure you need, Dr. West can provide personalized recommendations for your specific concerns.

Non-Surgical Facelift

A non-surgical facelift restores a more youthful facial appearance by replacing volume that is lost over time due to the natural aging process. Dr. West uses dermal fillers and Botox to restore fullness to the cheeks and smooth lines and creases across the face. These treatments are the gold-standard for maintenance of a fresh, rejuvenated appearance as well.

Patients love the subtle, natural-looking results of a non-surgical facelift. You can maintain your outstanding results by scheduling maintenance injections with Dr. West every four to six months for neuromodulators such as Botox (to treat wrinkles due to facial expression), and once a year to replace volume including collagen, fat, muscle and bone that is continually over time starting in the 20’s.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound energy to tighten aging skin and promote collagen production. Ultherapy is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift or brow lift and can provide non-surgical face and neck lifting and contouring. Ultherapy is a unique treatment option, as it is the only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment to lift skin from your brow to your decolletage.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Dull, lackluster skin, often in combination with prominent pores and mottled red and brown pigmentation, is a common concern. Laser treatments address these natural skin changes without surgery. Laser resurfacing addresses various skin concerns including acne scars, prominent pores, fine wrinkles, brown spots and precancers, while reversing sun damage and lowering the risk of skin cancers in sun-damaged skin.

Lutronic Genius RF Microneedling

RF microneedling uses tiny needles to deliver radiofrequency to not only the epidermis, but also to the dermis, the layer beneath the skin’s surface. Dr. West uses the powerful and safe Lutronic Genius device to tighten crepey skin on the front of the neck, the chest, the knees and anyhwere on the body that superfical tightening is desired.  Radiofrequency microneedling is also a gold-standard treatment for acne scars and stretch marks, and is frequently used in combination with resurfacing lasers in a series of treatment sessions for optimal results. 

A major advantage of radiofrequency compared to laser treatment is that all skin types can be safely treated without risk of hyperpigmentation, and that the treatment can be performed during any season because it does not cause photosensitivity.
