Reversing the signs of Aging is easier than ever

wrinkle treatmentThese days, surgery is no longer the only way to fight aging and turn back the hands of time. Non-surgical procedures have gained popularity due to the results that can be achieved — almost immediately, with less pain and little downtime.

Continual advances in anti-aging without surgery

At Aura we can offer our clients a full array of advanced and modern non-surgical cosmetic treatments, including these five:

  1. Filler injections

Filling and plumping the skin can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sag.

  1. Botox injections

Perhaps the most popular non-surgical skin procedure, Botox is widely used by women and men. Botox is injected into certain facial muscles to paralyze them, preventing the extreme expressions that etch the face with lines and folds. Results are visible in one to two weeks and can last about six months.

  1. Fraxel Dual

This laser procedure provides skin resurfacing, effectively treating both the skin’s surface and deeper layers. The treatment can help restore your skin to a more youthful appearance by encouraging the growth of new healthy tissue. The procedure can reduce and eliminate sunspots and wrinkles, as well as improve the appearance of acne scars, skin texture and the mask of pregnancy.

  1. Intense Pulsed Light Therapy

The IPL Photorejuvenation or PhotoFacial treats the damaged superficial layer of the skin and delivers thermal energy to treat deeper tissue. The treatment works to stimulate collagen production and resurface your skin without damaging it.

  1. Thermage

This radio frequency procedure can be used to treat the upper and lower eyelids, to smooth lines and wrinkles on the face and neck, and even to smooth skin on the body and improve the appearance of cellulite.

Side effects shouldn’t last long

Non-surgical treatments can cause some swelling, redness, and itchiness, often disappearing within a few hours to a few days post-procedure.

anti-aging goals

Step into our office (and you can look younger)

anti-aging goals Some of the most effective ways to fight the signs of aging and restore a more youthful appearance have nothing to do with plastic surgery. These days, more and more people are achieving their anti-aging goals with a fairly quick office visit causing little to no pain or downtime. Here are three common issues that our patients are solving without going under the knife, and so can you:

1.) Deep wrinkles in the forehead
. Surgical solution — brow lift
The procedure pulls up the forehead using incisions made in the scalp
. Non-surgical solution – Botox injections
When botulinum toxin is injected into a muscle, it temporarily relaxes it. This can temporarily smooth and even eliminate forehead lines caused by facial expression, sun damage and aging.
. Preventive solution – Botox
Many facial wrinkles are formed by the natural repetitive muscle contractions that happen when we make facial expression, from laughing to crying. Botox injections can be used to pre-treat areas that are still smooth and wrinkle-free, but are known to be prone to forming deep lines, such as around the eyes, between the brows and in the forehead. Early intervention with Botox injections can prevent creases from forming in the first place.

2.) Thinning lips and vertical lines
. Surgical solution – lip implants
. Non-surgical solution – filler injections
Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvéderm can be used to shape and increase the size of the upper and lower lip for a more youthful, plump appearance. Filler can also be used to improve the appearance of your lips by filling in the lines and crevices that can be the results of smoking, sun exposure, aging and genetics.

3.) Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
. Surgical solution – facelift
. Non-surgical solution – filler injections
Both Juvéderm and Restylane (also a hyaluronic filler) can treat the deep crevices and sagging that can appear around the mouth. The office visit for injections takes around 20 minutes and results can last up to a year. Restylane has also been shown to trigger the body’s own collagen production, which helps support the skin and improve its appearance.
