We all have concerns about the way we look, but some of us are scared about scheduling surgery to help us make our tweaks. Whether you do or do not qualify for plastic surgery, it may not always be the best option for you. With cutting-edge technology, the world of cosmetic surgery has several minimally invasive non-surgical options to help patients get the look they desire without going under the knife.
Non-surgical cosmetic procedures include all minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments that allow patients to alter their looks without going through traditional surgery. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures may include anything from injections to radiofrequency treatments delivered through a handheld device. Their results are not permanent, but they require less recovery time and produce minimal discomfort and to a more invasive procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate for Non-Surgical Procedure?
If you are a man or woman who is interested in achieving cosmetic results, but do not qualify for cosmetic surgery or are concerned about undergoing traditional surgery, non-surgical cosmetic procedures may be right for you. Non-surgical procedures are more for less extreme cosmetic improvements. They’re great for making subtle changes to your appearance and maintaining the results of previous procedures.
What Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures Are Offered at Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery?
At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Three of our most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures are Ultherapy® for skin tightening, Kybella® to get rid of excess fat under the chin and microneedling for complexion rejuvenation.
Ultherapy® is a state-of-the-art procedure that uses ultrasound technology to deliver waves of skin tightening energy into the deepest layers of the skin. This energy helps to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, which in turn enhances skin elasticity and volume in the treated areas. Patients who receive Ultherapy® on their face and neck see a decrease in the number of wrinkles, and the amount of banding and sagging skin in the treated areas.
Kybella® is a series of injections made into the underside of the chin to help reduce fat in the area and improve the appearance of a “double chin.” The main active ingredient in Kybella® works to absorb and destroy fat cells in the treated areas. This non-surgical procedure is perfect for patients who are concerned with volume under the chin.
Microneedling is the process of stimulating collagen and effectively remodeling scar tissue through controlled micro-injuries. This process stimulates your body’s natural wound-healing process and minimizes cellular damage. At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, we use the SkinPen® device, the world’s first FDA-cleared microneedling device, for our microneedling procedures.
