Non-Invasive Procedures To Make You Younger
More than three million Americans age 55+ try to turn back the clock every year with non-invasive cosmetic procedures, as well as millions more who are younger. There are several types of these procedures that Dr. Fiorillo can recommend to you at his New York office. They include the following:
- Botox injections: Botox is very helpful for crow’s feet and a furrowed forehead. Botox is the brand name for a very purified form of botulinum toxin. It paralyzes small muscles in the face and prevents lines from forming. It also makes the ones you have less noticeable. It also can be injected into neck muscles to reduce ‘turkey neck.’
- Hyaluronic acid fillers: Names include Restylane and Juvederm, which is used to reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes, rings and dark circles. Injection of these products triggers the production of collagen, which is the protein that gives our skin firmness and strength. The injection lasts up to nine months. The filler will stimulate growth of new collagen so you may not need as much in future visits.
- Juvederm Volumna: This fairly new hyaluronic filler is used to fill in smile lines around the nose and marionette lines around the mouth.
- Microdermabrasion: Sloughing off the dead skin cells of the face can get rid of many age spots and fine lines. This procedure also can improve the tone of your skin as well as texture. For best results, you usually will need to have several of these procedures done over several weeks. People with darker skin need to use caution as an improper peel can lead to scarring.
