Your skin is the first thing people see when you meet them. Healthier looking skin is a sign of a healthy body, which not only makes us look good, but feel good too. While they say 40 is the new 20, it can be hard to ignore those fine lines and wrinkles that come with time. Even with excellent care, some signs of aging are inevitable. But not everyone is ready to take the step to surgery, so if a more affordable, less abrasive alternative to younger looking skin is what you’re looking for, you have a variety of options to explore.
Here are 6 ways we can help you look as young as you feel without surgery.
One of the most well-known anti-aging, cosmetic procedures offers a painless and anesthesia-free solution to mild, moderate and severe facial wrinkles. Botox is a purified protein that produces a smoother-looking brow through small injections directly into the muscle. As the nerves become restricted, the muscle movement is reduced until facial lines on the forehead and around the eyes start to fade.
Botox is FDA-approved, and as the best botox doctor in Montgomery County, PA, Best Impressions Med Spa has safely treated thousands of patients with botox injectables in Collegeville, the Main Line and throughout the surrounding area. Our renowned plastic surgeons offer a safe, relaxed and comfortable experience for each of the necessary Botox treatments. The effects last about 3-4 months, so consistent injects will yield the best results and may even elongate the effects of each treatment as you go.
Ultherapy is an exciting alternative to a facelift, using ultrasound energy to help naturally lift and tighten skin on the eyebrow, neck, under chin/jawline and most recently, the decolletage. The process incorporates your body’s own healing process by stimulating collagen production to improve the appearance of loose and wrinkled skin.
The Ultherapy process takes about 60-90 min with no recovery time to disrupt your every day routine. Many have seen immediate results, but typically gradual improvements occur over 2-3 months time as the new collagen forms. Results can last up to 3 years with maintenance required every other year following.
If sun damage, wrinkling or acne scarring is your target, then chemical peels may be the solution. This process offers a number of solutions to shed dead skin and improve skin tone. From our SkinMedica® Illuminize Peel to brighten the overall appearance of skin to our SkinMedica® Rejuvenize Peel that softens fine lines, wrinkles and skin roughness, you can find the right solution for your specific skin concerns.
While we recommend 4-6 treatments for optimal results, you’ll notice a difference in just one visit. Whether you’re just looking for more radiant skin or your damage is much more severe, chemical peels offer something for everyone.
Often referred to as an “instant facelift,” Microdermabrasion gently sands away a superficial layer of dead skin cells where acne scars, fine lines and discoloration all resides. Using a specialized diamond tip instrument, the procedure triggers an injury response in the body, causing it to naturally make way for a new, smoother layer of skin to replace the damaged skin.
Our DermaSweep® treatment offers a similar, more tailored solution through the use of bristle tips. A vacuum pump gently lifts the skin surface to sweep away the dead layer more precisely and controlled. Both treatments offer immediate results with more visible, substantial results after about 6 treatments.
With three main types of facials, you can just the right pore-cleansing treatment for your skin needs, no matter what your schedule! Our Express Facial gets you in and out in 30 min. for a quick, refreshing cleanse, while our Hydrafacial combines all the benefits of a facial, peel and microdermabrasion into one stimulating, exfoliating treatment.
This process utilizes advanced laser technology to target skin imperfections such as brown spots, acne scars, wrinkles and age spots for more radiant looking skin. The laser instrument emits intense pulsed light over the targeted areas of skin to stimulate natural collagen production while simultaneously destroying melin that causes uneven skin tones and age spots. With Super Photofacial, you’ll enjoy noticeable results in about just 5-7 days with about 4-5 sessions helping you achieve optimal results.
