The beauty of living in our high-tech era is that there are many options available for cosmetic goals like rejuvenating your appearance. If you have time and patience on your side, you could have over a dozen possibilities that can work with your body’s natural healing processes to create long-lasting results.
Sometimes, though, you’re on a deadline. If you have a special event on the horizon and you need to look your best before the big day, some anti-aging treatments are more suitable than others. We’ll feature other age-defying treatments in future blogs but for a fast fix, take a look at these top options from our team at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta.
Botox® and Dysport® Injections
For expression lines like crow’s feet, forehead creases, and frown lines between your eyebrows, Botox® and Dysport® are effective and precise ways to get quick results. Our skilled providers can specifically target the wrinkles you are concerned about within a brief treatment. Your results will start to appear after about seven days and they can continue to improve for up to two weeks.
Injectable Facial Fillers
Facial fillers or dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Resytlane® are efficient tools to combat common signs of aging. After we inject the fillers to fill in your key wrinkles or give your targeted areas a youthful plumpness, you will begin to see your results immediately.
Chemical peels are highly effective for facial rejuvenation because they can often address fine lines and mild wrinkles as well as age spots. It’s important to note, though, that peels vary significantly in their depth and potency, so the timeline for your results varies as well. You may see your optimal results from a light peel within a week, while deeper peels could take several weeks.
LaseMD™ Skin Rejuvenation
Unlike many laser treatments for facial aging, LaseMD™ skin rejuvenation is a non-ablative laser. This means that it doesn’t break the skin, so the healing process is much shorter. After your procedure, you may see mild flaking as your skin sheds its damaged outer layers to reveal youthful skin with fewer fine lines and age spots. Your results can begin to appear within one to six days after the treatment. Keep in mind that in some cases, it takes two or three treatments to enjoy the best possible results.
DOT™ Laser Therapy
DOT™ Laser Therapy is a laser treatment known as fractionated laser skin resurfacing. The procedure treats your skin with a pattern of “dots” from the laser which stimulates your body’s natural healing process. DOT™ Laser Therapy is effective for age spots and hyperpigmentation as well as lines and wrinkles.
It can take two weeks or more to recover from your DOT™ Laser Therapy procedure in order to see your full results. Keep in mind that there are other laser treatments for facial rejuvenation too, like Fraxel®, and our providers will be able to recommend the best option for you based on your needs and your available recovery time.
PicoSure® Facial Rejuvenation
While the PicoSure® laser was originally best known for its success in laser tattoo removal, it has now become a popular tool for facial rejuvenation when paired with its new FOCUS™ Lens Array. This advanced procedure addresses multiple signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, as well as freckles and other types of sun damage. While it can take several treatments to achieve your best results, this unique laser procedure carries minimal downtime.
Fractora™ Facial Rejuvenation
Fractora™ is a procedure that improves a variety of signs of aging through a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy. The microneedles deliver targeted warmth to various layers of your skin using radiofrequency energy. This stimulates your natural healing process to restore skin-firming collagen. Results begin to appear within two weeks after your treatment, though they can continue to improve for several weeks.
