If you are looking for some “fresh face” ideas to rejuvenate and awaken your skin but are not ready for surgery, we have treatments available for you. To achieve a more rested appearance, injections, laser treatments and chemical peels are often the first options chosen by patients. It’s becoming more common for women in their 20s and 30s to begin injections, resurfacing and peels as a preventative anti-aging regimen as they are able to maintain their young-looking appearance longer, delaying the need for surgical intervention. Unlike the past, it is now rare that a patient’s first aesthetic procedure is a facelift or neck lift. You may have heard from friends, family, or advertisements about different non-surgical options. Let’s dig a little deeper on the secrets to maintaining a healthy glow leaving bystanders in awe of your youthful radiance. Who wouldn’t love that?
BOTOX and Dysport are injectable solutions that temporarily relax muscles to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Once injected, it may take up to two weeks for full results to be noticeable. These injections last for about three to four months. The base ingredient in each of these is diluted with a sterile solution just prior to injection. Dr. Castellon will determine the precise injection points and amount to inject after examining your facial muscle strength and considering your goals and treatment history.
Special dermal fillers may be injected under areas of the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scar tissue. Such fillers can make lips appear fuller and even fill in hollow contours in the face. Noticeable results are visible immediately, but the full result may take up to two weeks. Results may last from four months to a year or longer, depending on the specific filler used. The skill and artistry of the doctor is critical. Different fillers are designed for injection at different layers or depths. The knowledge to gauge and inject the appropriate place, depth and amount is critical to a natural appearance. Poorly skilled clinicians can create visible lumps, bumps or “tracks” under the skin’s surface.
Laser energy or infrared light can penetrate the skin to cause tightening in collagen layers. This can reduce fine lines and wrinkles while tightening sagging skin, creating a more youthful appearance. Needless to say, skill and experience make a big difference in outcomes when using a resource like laser to effect change in the tissues of the face.
A laser is used to target certain areas of the face deep under the skin to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. The laser is also used to remove layers of damaged skin to give you a firmer, more evenly toned appearance. The best lasers have settings that are customized for your skin type, skin condition and aesthetic goals – not all lasers are created equal. Dr. Castellon has brought the most innovative laser technology to Brevard County and his confidence in the equipment means you can trust us to deliver the best results possible.
Facial peels can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scarring and discoloration. The top layers of the skin are removed, revealing smoother, fresher skin. Healing usually is complete in five to seven days. Our clinical and aesthetic staff will thoroughly evaluate your skin type, resiliency and healing history prior to recommending the best method of removing your older, duller skin cells.
