Advancements in skin creams and over-the-counter treatments have been able to lessen the effects of aging on the skin. However, there comes a time when all these creams, lotions, and serums aren’t enough to remedy deep dynamic wrinkles, fine lines, and skin texture irregularities. This is the opportune time to turn to plastic surgery. Procedures like facelift and eyelid surgery are best for tightening skin and repositioning sagging tissues. However, not everyone is mentally or financially ready for such an invasive procedure.
Fortunately, Dr. Ryan Stanton and his team at Ryan A. Stanton M.D. in Beverly Hills offer non-invasive treatments that can still target your needs without requiring surgical intervention. A skilled and knowledgeable professional performs these non-surgical cosmetic treatments, and unlike surgical procedures, they come with less recovery time, scarring, and financial investment. In this blog, we’ll break down the non-invasive treatments offered by Dr. Stanton to help you determine the best choice for you and your needs.
Let’s Talk Injectables
Injectable treatments only continue to rise in popularity because of their ability to treat lines, wrinkles, and facial volume loss without any downtime or recovery associated with the procedure. The term injectable treatments pertain to the cosmetic treatments Botox® and dermal fillers. These two treatments can be used separately or together to help reach your ideal aesthetic goals. Let’s break down injectables to help you decide if they’re the right treatment for you.
WHAT IS BOTOX, AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
Classified as a neuromodulator, Botox has the incredible ability to stop facial creasing, wrinkles, and fine lines from forming by temporarily blocking the nerve signals to the facial muscles. When injected into specific facial muscles, it causes them to relax by disrupting the communication the nerves send to the muscle enabling them from contracting. The results of Botox are temporary, so we do recommend scheduling your follow-up treatment every 3-4 months to maintain your results. The good news is, after several treatments of Botox, the neuromodulator will train the muscle to stop flexing, which will cause the skin to crease less and wrinkles to lose their depth.
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS, AND WHAT DO THEY DO?
Dermal fillers are composed of a hyaluronic acid gel that is carefully injected into areas of the face where the skin and supportive tissues need some support. As skin ages, it begins to produce less collagen and hyaluronic acid. With fewer of these important compounds in our skin, there is a decline in its moisture-retaining abilities, which leads to significant volume loss. As a result, the skin becomes drier and looks thinner, and fine lines and wrinkles begin to develop.
Dermal fillers correct the facial changes in both the skin and connective tissues. They help by restoring hyaluronic acid and promoting collagen production, leading to smoother, more vibrant skin. Filler will also build volume in the face, lift, smooth, and recontour your facial structure for a more youthful appearance.
Are There Any Non-Invasive Treatments for the Body?
While Botox and dermal fillers are meant to target aging from the neck up, the face is not the only area that can be treated with a non-invasive treatment at Ryan Stanton, M.D. Those interested in a non-surgical body treatment are also in luck. Evolve and Evoke are two of the latest aesthetic treatments created by InMode®. With the use of proprietary technology, Evolve and Evoke can remodel and rebuild the face and body tissue. They can also sculpt muscle and underlying supportive tissues to enhance your natural curves. If surgical options like liposuction or hip implants aren’t right for you, Evolve and Evoke powerfully offer tightening, smoothing, and contouring without surgery.
Injuring the Skin to Improve It
Injuring your skin to improve it sounds like a backward concept, but it works with Morpheus8 treatments. Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that combines micro-needling and radio frequency (RF) energy to resurface your skin. With microscopic needles that deliver the RF energy deep into your skin, it creates micro-tears that activate your body’s natural healing abilities promoting new elastic and collagen production to remodel and tighten your skin.
