If you’d like to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and otherwise defy the changes associated with aging but aren’t a fan of surgery, consider a liquid facelift. The skin care specialists at Advanced Laser Skin Center in Columbus, Ohio, use a variety of effective methods to restore youthful vibrancy to your skin. They can even make subtle changes in the appearance of your nose and chin using injectables and long-lasting dermal fillers. Call today or use their online scheduling service to make your appointment for a nonsurgical nose job, chin augmentation, or facelift.
While it can’t do everything a surgical procedure can, a nonsurgical nose job using dermal fillers such as Restylane® can smooth out a bump on the bridge of your nose, improve the overall symmetry of your nose, and make positive changes to the tip of your nose. The dermal filler is delivered by injection to the targeted areas, which are identified during a detailed discussion about your goals and expectations as well as what the procedure entails.
The changes aren’t permanent, but the filler can last for 18 months or more and is absorbed naturally by your body over time. Natural-appearing results rely heavily on a physician’s skill, and the providers at Advanced Laser Skin Center have the expertise necessary to perform this procedure.
For nonsurgical chin augmentation, Restylane is injected into the chin area to add volume and reduce the appearance of a weak or receding chin. Treatment with a dermal filler can also change the shape of your chin if you desire, making it more pointed or less pointed or squaring it off. You may develop slight swelling and tenderness in the treated area for a day or so, but recovery time is otherwise minimal. Most patients return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.
Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are all variations of a neurotoxin (botulinum) that’s been specially formulated for cosmetic use. These medications are delivered via injection and work by relaxing muscles under the skin that are responsible for causing frown lines, wrinkles around your eyes, and other fine lines on your face. When these muscles relax, the result is smoother skin and a marked decrease in lines and wrinkles.
Treatments typically take less than 30 minutes, and results last for several months. The needles used are very small and most patients experience no discomfort during the procedure, but there may be some soreness at the injection site for a few hours afterward. In most cases, you can return to work or other activities immediately after treatment.
The Advanced Laser Skin Center also offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to rejuvenate your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. PRP therapy uses your body’s own natural healing compounds, found in platelets, to regenerate skin and repair damage caused by aging, sun exposure, and other environmental processes.
