A Variety of Non-Surgical Skin Rejuvenation Services Help Skin Look and Feel Younger
The skin can show signs of age, injury, sun, mirth and more; indeed, the skin can truly serve as an indicator of time and age, which is why non-surgical skin rejuvenation services continue to grow in popularity and usage throughout the United States. Everyone wants skin that looks young, healthy, beautiful and radiant, however, time can take a toll on the skin in the form of wrinkles, sun damage, fine lines, scars, age spots and adult acne, among others. And that is where non-surgical skin rejuvenation services can come in – injectables, fillers, lasers, products and other skin treatments can help your skin look and feel better in a matter of minutes.
While cosmetic surgical procedures tend to offer results that last longer, non-surgical cosmetic treatments are popular chiefly due to their convenience and cost. In particular, Botox remains the number one treatment for reducing wrinkles and lines on the face; in 2009, there were almost 2.6 million Botox procedures performed in the United States, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), and these represented a whopping one-quarter of all cosmetic procedures performed during that time.
In addition, advances and enhancements in laser technology offer more and more options for both women and men, including laser hair removal, laser skin tightening and laser facial regeneration which can also help promote great-looking skin. After Botox, hyaluronic acid treatments such as Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane were the second most common non-surgical skin treatments in 2009, followed by laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Further, non-surgical skin rejuvenation can focus on scars and acne, loose skin and age spots, depending on your particular needs. Certain skin care products can also help treat a variety of issues.
As a general rule, surgical cosmetic skin procedures will require more time and expense as well as a longer recovery period than their non-surgical cosmetic counterparts. Regardless of your current preference, you should discuss your interests, goals, budget and anything else you are curious about with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon who specializes in skin rejuvenation.

Treat your skin with care and kindness, and it will continue to show your best face.
