You don’t have to have surgery to reveal a more youthful you. With med spa procedures from microdermabrasion to BOTOX® Cosmetic, our Marietta, GA, practice offers a wide range of nonsurgical ways to rejuvenate your look through noninvasive or minimally invasive approaches.
With regular maintenance and upkeep, these treatments can deliver long-lasting results and even prevent the need for future surgical procedures in some cases. If you’re wondering where to begin, we have put together a list of our favorite options to help you determine which treatment or combination of treatments may be right for you.
This minimally invasive injectable treatment relaxes specific muscles in the face to smooth out wrinkles created by repeated contractions over time. Popular BOTOX treatment areas include the glabellar lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet on the outer corners of the eyes. Some patients start these treatments as early as their late 20s to prevent future lines and wrinkles. Results typically last about 3 months.
Another injectable option, dermal fillers provide volume under the skin to fill in lines and wrinkles, restore fullness in the cheeks and temples, and address other contouring concerns. Many of these fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a hydrating substance found naturally in the body. However, our practice uses a variety of filler formulations that each work best for different concerns. Depending on the product, results can last up to 2 years.
Thermi treatments use gentle, controlled heat to tighten lax skin. Radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen production that creates firmer and more toned skin in a variety of areas. Results develop gradually and have been known to last for years.
Chemical peels, or facial peels, exfoliate the skin through the use of chemical solutions that cause the outer layers to flake off. This reveals a newly generated layer of skin that is smoother, more even, and more refreshed overall. These come in several variations that range from minimally invasive peels to deeper treatments that require some downtime and provide dramatic transformations. Peel results may last for years, depending on the strength of treatment you choose.
Another form of exfoliation, microdermabrasion uses fine crystals to sand away imperfections such as acne, sun damage, and fine lines. The process also helps stimulate collagen production, which leads to ongoing tightening and improves resistance to the effects of aging. With regular treatments, microdermabrasion can be instrumental in maintaining young, refreshed skin.
