Besides genetics, sun exposure, and lifestyle choices, aging skin is often caused by a loss of facial volume. The loss of skin thickness progressively leads to sagging skin that develops lines and wrinkles that deepen over time. The good news is that facial rejuvenation is possible without the need for surgery. Minimally-invasive techniques are all the rage today. We are able to significantly reduce the signs of aging and get you back to your daily activities immediately in many cases.

What is Micro-Needling?

Microneedling is an innovative skin and facial rejuvenation method that actually goes back centuries in its origins. The way that microneedling works is through the selective “damage” of outer skin tissue. This sends your body into a healing cascade that results in the rapid turnover of old skin cells in favor of new ones that display fewer signs of aging like lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.

A Look at Dermal Fillers

Another technique for facial rejuvenation is dermal fillers. This technique involves the injection of a gel containing substances like hyaluronic acid. One advantage to a facial rejuvenation treatment with dermal fillers is that your results will appear quite soft and natural. This is because we are normally just replacing naturally-occurring substances that your skin has become deficient in due to the aging process and other factors.

What About Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is a type of dermal filler containing polylactic acid suspended within a gel that we inject into the face. After your treatment, your skin will gradually replace the product with fresh collagen to help minimize signs of facial aging like lines and wrinkles.
