Nowadays, it seems that everyone is uploading all of their personal experiences to social media feeds, and because of this, people are becoming more aware of their facial appearance. It has caused us to focus on how our faces appear in photos, which has prompted a demand for facial procedures such as injectables, fillers, and other facial treatments. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, new statistics reflect the changing face of plastic surgery. More people are opting for procedural options for “touching up” their facial appearance with minimally invasive or non-surgical procedures. The growth of facial aesthetic procedures continues to spike in popularity. Dr. Persky offers a variety of non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments specifically designed to target facial rejuvenation. Patients won’t have to go anywhere near a scalpel to achieve younger, smoother skin that glows radiance in snapshots.
No Longer Rely on a Camera Filter!
The more people start to post close-ups of their faces and/or selfies, the easier it is for them to examine their facial flaws. They often want to find ways to emulate the same appearance in real life that they can create by using image filters. Dr. Persky offers a variety of non-surgical treatments to help you look younger and more refreshed. Patients can restore superficial signs of aging with less downtime and minimal discomfort.
Tighten Skin and Remove Wrinkles
When someone wants to tighten their facial skin to diminish wrinkles and creases, they may consider facelift surgery. However, a facelift entails a long recovery, discomfort, and the risk of visible scarring. Ultherapy® offers the benefits of a facelift without the “nipping and tucking.” The treatment uses ultrasound technology to exert energy to the targeted tissue. Ultherapy® is great for patients who cannot afford downtime. Dr. Persky’s newest minimally invasive technology, Profound, uses micro-needles that emit radiofrequency, which results in even more lifting and tightening of the face and neck. Profound comes the closest to the results of a surgical facelift without having actual surgery. Profound requires five to seven days of downtime due to swelling and bruising.
Target Fine Wrinkles and Add Volume to the Face
Facial fillers and injectables have been around for years and are designed to restore facial volume and fullness to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. They continue to grow in popularity due to the quick results and minimal downtime. Dr. Persky performs treatment with the following injectables to help you achieve the picture-perfect look you want to have in real life:
- RADIESSE® and BELOTERO BALANCE®: These fillers restore volume loss that has caused the appearance of wrinkles and hollows around the mouth, cheeks, temples, jawline, and aged hands.
- Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC: These hyaluronic acid fillers works by stimulating the body to produce natural collagen to diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds, bags under the eyes, and fine lines around the mouth.
- Sculptra® Aesthetic: This injectable is a collagen stimulating filler that adds natural volume to the face where needed.
- BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and XEOMIN®: These neuromodulators contain botulinum toxin type A, a purified substance derived from bacteria, that works by inhibiting the movements of muscles causing the appearance of wrinkles. Patients can temporarily diminish the appearance of crow’s feet, drooping eyebrows, vertical lip lines, and frown lines with these injectables.
Restore Damaged Skin and Get Rid of Age Spots
One of the hard-to-target indicators of aging is dark spots. Even with creams and at-home treatments, it is sometimes never enough to shed the years of aging skin. Fraxel® laser treatments are an ideal solution for restoring damaged skin and removing age spots. Dr. Persky offers a variety of Fraxel® options that utilize laser technology to treat a fraction of the skin without damaging the surrounding tissues. Depending on a patient’s needs and severity of correction, Dr. Persky offers Fraxel® re:store, Fraxel® DUAL, and Fraxel® re:pair. During a consultation, Dr. Persky can go over what each treatment entails and which one would be the best option for your skin.
