No matter what age you are, you want to look your very best and feel your best. This starts with having a face that is smooth, youthful, and rejuvenated. Most of us don’t have a perfect face, and this is fine, but there are ways you can improve your look and gain more self-confidence in the process.
Acne scars, pigmentation, wrinkles, and other imperfections are common for the average individual. But, you can change the surface and shape of your face and add to the quality of your life by investing in this area of your body the right way.
Your face is the first thing people notice when they look at you, so you should consider how you want to invest in it, and which cosmetic techniques are right for you. Nobody is perfect of course, but you don’t need to make major invasive changes in your face to see the results that you want.
In fact, with the advancement of cosmetic techniques and procedures, it is easier than ever to make your face look renewed and refreshed in a natural way with minimal recovery time!
We’ll talk more about the most popular and beneficial facial treatments and procedures that will give you the natural and youthful look you have always been searching for. So, keep reading through this post to find out the top 6 ways to invest in your face!
The first cosmetic technique we will be talking about is Microdermabrasion. This is a minimally invasive treatment that is perfect for any skin type and skin tone. It is similar to Microneedling but is more gentle and safe for the skin and it creates dramatic results almost immediately.
Instead of using needles, this cosmetic treatment uses an exfoliating tool known as a Diamond Tome to resurface and renew the surface of your face. The top layer of dead or damaged skin is removed by this procedure. And, our diamond tool acts like sandpaper and helps to soften up the skin and get rid of signs of aging and acne scars.
Microdermabrasion also helps to minimize your pores and will improve the look and texture of the skin overall. This way your face looks brighter and has a fresh appearance with very little effort on your part.
This is a relatively short procedure that takes a mere 30 minutes to perform. It can be somewhat uncomfortable at first because there is no local anesthesia applied to the face. But the results of Microdermabrasion will make your skin look brand new and youthful.
We recommend doing at least eight to ten treatments for ideal results. As it takes time to fully resurface your face and restore its smoothness. If you are interested in trying out this treatment, go to our contact page to find out more information about this procedure!
The next option is more invasive and will require more recovery time. However, if you are looking to completely change the look of your face and turn back the hands of time, this is a great investment for your face! But, what exactly is a facelift?
Facelifts are a common procedure and help to tighten up loose and sagging skin and tissues in the face. A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, uses several surgical techniques to make you look younger, especially as the aging process starts to show on your face more prominently.
Unfortunately, the shape of the face naturally changes as we age, but a facelift can help slow the aging process and return some of your youth to you. You won’t look twenty again, but you will see noticeable and positive changes to your face.
In particular, sagging and skin fold found near the cheeks and jawline can be corrected by Dr. Vitenas. This is done by pulling back a flap of skin on each side of your face. An incision is made to create the flap, and the skin is trimmed and shaped so that it can be contoured to your face in a pleasing way.
Once the skin is shaped and placed back over the face, it will be sutured and any excess skin will be removed. Recovery time will differ between patients, but expect it to be anywhere from two to three weeks.
If you are concerned about recovery time, or just want a more natural and subtle change to the face, you can have a mini lift done instead. Dr. Vitenas will create a smaller incision to reposition the jowls, this way your cheeks will have more volume and your face will look younger.
In addition to the facelift, we also recommend getting a neck lift. The face ages slower in comparison to your neck. So, when your neck starts to sag, this can make you look older than you really are. Even if your face looks young and tight. Adding a neck lift, also known as Platysmaplasty, will help correct this issue.
A neck lift is often done with your facelift and will help to get rid of fat and drooping skin in the neck. A sagging neck can diminish the contour of the jaw and add years to your face. This is why we highly recommend getting these procedures done together with your facelift for the best results.
Your facelift and neck lift won’t fix the condition of your skin, though. Fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and other types of damage will still be present. But with your skin pulled back tight with these procedures you will look a lot younger.
You can also invest in some of the other cosmetic procedures that we have talked about in this post. This way you can improve the look of your face more fully.
Wrinkles and fine lines start to develop as early as your thirties. While a few wrinkles and fine lines might not seem like a big deal at first, they can actually make you look a lot older than you are. This is why you should consider investing in this next facial treatment.
Really, it’s just a natural part of life, we all get worry lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. As we age these signs of age only continue to grow and this can make you look tired, older, worn down, and even angry. You can’t completely eliminate all signs of aging, but you can take steps to minimize them and make yourself look better.
This is what makes Botox so popular and useful! With the help of our team, you can simply and quickly diminish signs of aging. Botox helps to soften up the lines on your face with minimal effort. And, you will see results almost immediately. Once Botox is injected you will notice that your skin is more smooth and pleasing to the eye within days.
Botox injections are safe and natural, as they use a purified protein to create smoother and better-looking skin. Botox does weaken the muscles in your face that create wrinkles, but Dr. Vitenas will expertly place Botox throughout your face in the right amount and locations.
Some people worry that Botox looks unnatural or makes your face look frozen, but this technique has advanced considerably over the years. And with better knowledge, we can now make your Botox look more natural than ever. You can even use this procedure to prevent aging in the future, this includes preventing fine lines and wrinkles.
Again, this is a pretty straightforward process. You won’t need any local anesthesia. Instead, a numbing agent is used in areas near the mouth. There is no downtime required and you can get back to your day right away. The smoothing of your face will occur almost immediately. You can see results within 24 to 48 hours, but sometimes it could take a few days for the botox to fully settle in.
Juvederm is similar to Botox, as this is another type of injectable cosmetic treatment that will help reduce the appearance of any fine lines and wrinkles on your face. But, there is another added benefit to this treatment that is not found in Botox.
Juvederm not only makes the skin look younger and smoother, but it also helps to create more volume and extra rejuvenation. As we age, we lose volume in many different parts of the face, this includes the eyelid area, the corners of our mouth, the lips, and the cheeks. To correct this, Juvederm can be injected.
This is an all-natural dermal filler that has hyaluronic acid, which is already found in the body naturally. The gel-like filler is FDA-approved and helps to smooth out wrinkles almost instantly. Further adding to its value, Juvederm lasts a lot longer than Botox.
While the effects of Botox will stay present anywhere from 3 to 4 months, Juvederm will keep your face smooth and filled for up to one full year. And, if you want even longer-lasting results, we also recommend getting Voluma. Voluma is a type of Juvederm filler that can be applied to the face.
In particular, this dermal filler will add extra volume to the cheeks and it even provides a subtle lift to this area of your face, as well. Best of all, this injection will last for upwards of two years. So, you won’t have to worry about going in for a touch-up for a few years.
There are many ways to deal with skin damage, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other types of imperfections on the surface of your face. We talked about Microdermabrasion in the first section of the post, but there is another great option you can go with that might better fit your needs, especially if you want something that lasts longer and penetrates the skin more deeply.
Fraxel laser resurfacing is a light-based treatment that smooths out the skin and leaves behind minimal signs of damage and does not burn the skin. This laser treatment stimulates your skin’s healing response and helps you naturally produce collagen, this way you can look younger and more refreshed.
Especially if you have sun damage or pigmentation on your skin, this can be a great treatment. The laser targets signs of damage and aging in just a few treatments. Each treatment takes around thirty to sixty minutes to complete. Discomfort is minimal and you will see big improvements to your complexion almost immediately.
Lip filler treatment is another popular cosmetic procedure that can help enhance the overall look of your face. This treatment is one of the top ways you can invest in your face and it is minimally invasive and creates great results!
Like other parts of your face, your lips also begin to show signs of aging as you go through life, and while it is important to take care of the surface and shape of your face, you also want to keep your lips full to maintain your youthful look.
To perform lip augmentation, Dr. Vitenas will inject a dermal filler into your lips. There are a few different ways you can enhance your lips, but you can talk to Dr. Vitenas about this during your consultation. Contouring of the lip and adding fullness will create natural improvements to your face and greatly improve your natural look.
Cosmetic treatments and surgeries can create the look you want and give you back your youth. But, you need to choose procedures that are right for you. In this post, we went over some of the best ways to enhance and invest in your face.
