If you are not happy with the way your facial features look but are hesitant about undergoing plastic surgery, you may want to consider one of several non-surgical cosmetic procedures. There are actually a number of these types of treatments available, and they offer several great benefits to patients who are wanting a new look.
Not only are nonsurgical procedures much less invasive than surgery, but they are essentially pain-free and require minimal recovery time as well. Will one of these treatments be able to solve your issues? If you are intrigued with the ideal of correcting your facial features without surgery, read on to learn about the various forms of non-surgical cosmetic procedures we offer.
The facial expressions we make occur due to the contractions of facial muscles that are just under the surface of the skin. Since people make countless facial expressions each and every day, over the years, these muscle contractions can cause creases and/or wrinkles on your face. In some cases, wrinkles of this type can become quite deep and pronounced.
Of course, this can be very distressing for both women and men, alike. Fortunately, a product known as Botox can help you get rid of wrinkles and creases such as these. This is a virtually pain-free procedure that only takes a few short minutes and offers results that can last as long as three to six months depending on your unique situation and the severity of your problems.
Wrinkle fillers, also known as injectable fillers or Hylaform injectables are some of the most popular treatments available today that can help you get rid of wrinkles, facial lines and folds. Injectable fillers can also help correct thin, unattractive lips. There are many types of these fillers, and the one you will need depends on your distinct issues.
Wrinkle fillers are injected just under the skin and work by adding volume to the targeted area/s of your face. If necessary, this procedure can be performed simultaneously with various other cosmetic procedures that we offer. Hylaform injectables provide fairly quick results that can last about three to six months. The most common types of Hylaforms can be found below.
Perhaps the most popular technique to correct thin, unattractive lips is the use of fat injections. Not only is this procedure very safe and quick, but since the fat is taken from your own body, results are extremely long-lasting. If you are looking for full and sensuous lips, fat injections may be the perfect option for you.
Typically, this is a simple outpatient procedure and recovery time is amazingly fast. You can also choose to use this technique to compliment one of our other cosmetic procedures such as a Facelift, Rhinoplasty, eyebrow lifts, laser eyelid surgery or laser skin resurfacing.
Another great way to achieve full, sensuous lips is through lip augmentation. This procedure has been quickly gaining popularity among patients who desire to obtain more youthful and luscious lips. Lip augmentation is a minimally invasive cosmetic technique that can effectively add volume to your lips and boost your self-confidence.
This is another outpatient technique that can be performed rather quickly and requires very little recovery time. It can also be done along with other cosmetic procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, eyebrow lifts, Facelifts, Rhinoplasty or laser eyelid surgery. Talk to our doctor today to find out if this technique can help you!

Laser Skin Resurfacing – Treatment for Fine Wrinkles and Sun Damaged Skin
Laser skin resurfacing is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can be the solution for patients who suffer from fine wrinkles, sun damage, blotches or scars on their skin. During laser resurfacing treatment the plastic surgeon uses a laser to carefully remove a very thin layer of skin to allow new skin cells to grow in its place. The result is smoother, tighter and younger looking skin. Since it is a non-surgical procedure it can be a good solution for patients who wish to avoid going under the knife. The procedure can also work in combination with other cosmetic procedures such as blepharoplasty.
It is possible to treat specific problem areas with laser resurfacing or to have the procedure over the entire face. The treated area will be numbed with a local anesthetic and prepared for the laser. The procedure typically takes around 30-45 minutes when treating specific areas or up to one hour when treating the entire face.
After the procedure bandages or ointment will be placed on the treated area. After a day patients are advised to use water compresses on their face four or five times a day and use a special ointment to make sure that no scabs are formed. In the days immediately following the procedure it is normal to experience itching and swelling and if necessary patients will be prescribed a mild steroid to help with the symptoms. Around a week after laser resurfacing the treated skin will become dry and will peel revealing newly formed skin underneath. The recovery period will depend on the size of the area treated but should take around 10 – 14 days. It is important to wear a high SPF sunscreen after the procedure to protect the new skin cells and to prolong the effects of laser resurfacing.
It is worth noting that laser skin resurfacing is an outpatient procedure so there is no need for the patient to stay overnight. Laser resurfacing is one of the best ways to treat fine lines and sun damaged skin without the need for a surgical solution.
What are Wrinkle Fillers?
Wrinkle filler can be a great solution for patients who are looking for dramatic visible results without going under the knife. Aging and outside factors such as sun exposure, smoking, unhealthy diet and lack of exercise can all contribute to the appearance of wrinkles and lines around the face and neck. There are a number of wrinkle fillers available and in most cases results can be seen straight after the procedure and can last months. More
What is Botox?
Botox injections are a popular solution for patients who prefer not to undergo surgery but who suffer from deep wrinkles or frown lines. Botox injections follow a simple logic: if an area of the face will not move then skin will not wrinkle and will appear youthful and smooth. Some confusion is often caused by the marketing of Botox Cosmetic. This is essentially the same as regular Botox and can be used for all the same purposes. More
