Just a few weeks ago, many of us tipped our proverbial hats and glasses to welcome in a new year. What New Year’s means to a lot of folks is a chance to start anew, to set goals and actually achieve them. Unfortunately, many of the good intentions we have at the onset of a new set of months diminish quickly. It’s not that our desire for something new decreases, it’s that our belief in what’s possible wains. If one of your wishes for this new year is to feel better about your appearance, we have strategies to help you see the results you want.
Sometimes, the very thought of needing downtime to recover from a rejuvenating procedure is enough to cause procrastination. Here, we discuss a few of the ways our team can bring out beauty without much downtime if any at all.
Injectables are commonly used to achieve immediate or fast results. When we inject dermal fillers into the face or hands, we see the effects before you even leave the office. This aspect of treatment takes any guesswork, and any stress, out of the process. Botox injections take about a week to achieve the intended outcome, which is to release muscle contractions so frown lines and other creases diminish. And let’s not forget Kybella, the innovative new way to get rid of a double-chin! There is no downtime after injectable treatments.
DermaSweep is a micro-resurfacing procedure conducted in the office to remove the uppermost layer of dead and damaged skin cells. More than exfoliating the skin, though, DermaSweep infuses tissue with peptides and other nourishing ingredients to promote ongoing rejuvenation.
Nova Threads, FDA-approved dissolvable sutures made of Polydioxanone (PDO), can be used to temporarily lift the lips, crepey skin, and tissue on the mid-face. Treatment is customized to the patient and requires only a few days of “downtime.” No incisions are made and general anesthesia is not needed. Downtime is not about recovery so much as it is about waiting for minor redness and swelling to subside before revealing your refreshed appearance to your social circle.
Facial rejuvenation is not nearly as complicated as it used to be. Bring your beauty out this year with minimally invasive treatments conducted in the safety and comfort of our Salem office. Call 503-561-7000.
