I love dermal fillers and achieve wonderful results for my clients, but I also understand that not everyone likes injectables. Whether it’s an aversion to fillers or a desire to do things naturally, this preference is understandable. The good news is that you can still achieve age-defying results with a variety of other advanced treatments on the market!
For my clients who wish to avoid dermal fillers, I often recommend FDA-cleared Thread Lifts. Thread Lifts are fully dissolvable surgical sutures which are placed parallel to the skin on strategic areas of the face or neck to provide support, or a scaffolding effect, lifting the skin up and smoothing away wrinkles. The threads dissolve within months, but they stimulate new collagen in the process, which means your skin will continue showing age-defying improvements long after the threads have disappeared. You can’t get more natural than using your own collagen production, can you?
Laser skin rejuvenation is another amazing option that works with your body’s natural healing response to leave you with intensely revitalized new skin. Depending on your needs, we use a Halo™ laser skin resurfacing treatment to erase years of sun damage, banish dull skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter, younger skin with about a week or two of social downtime, depending on the intensity of your treatment. If you prefer little to no downtime, we can reduce sun damage and erase uneven pigmentation problems like age spots, freckles, and redness with a non-invasive BBL™ photofacial.
Speaking of BBL, perhaps the most exciting age-defying treatment on the market right now is a form of BBL called the Forever Young BBL™ treatment. This treatment combines BBL with SkinTyte™ II (which is my Brighten & Tighten Package!) to literally rejuvenate your skin cells at a molecular level. A Stanford University study in 2012 (“Rejuvenation of Gene Expression Pattern of Aged Human Skin by BroadBand Light Treatment”) assessed the skin of people who underwent Forever Young Photofacials over the long term. They ended up having skin that looked 10 years younger than its actual age! The trick to this treatment is patience, however. It doesn’t produce dramatic results overnight, but with years of repeated use. For this reason, I like to think of BBL photofacials as the perfect maintenance treatment. Many clients undergo a BBL once a season to maintain their youthful glow.
