While most people associated plastic surgeons with surgical procedures, our Peoria surgeon also offers non-surgical treatments. Unlike a surgical procedure, a non-surgical treatment is non-invasive and does not involve a lengthy recovery period.
Peoria Plastic Surgeon Offers Non-Surgical Treatments
Aging, sun damage, cellular changes, and the depletion of the collagen and elastin that keep skin young looking can lead to wrinkles. Making certain facial expressions, such as frowning and squinting, creates wrinkles around the mouth and eyes.
Injectable medications, also known dermal fillers or injectables, reduce the appearance of both fine and deep wrinkles. Dermal fillers consist of gel-like substances that replace lost volume to smooth wrinkles and soften creases.
Because this quick and effective treatment provides instant results and requires no downtime, more than one million men and women opt for this facial rejuvenation treatment each year. The results can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.
Healthy skin is essential for getting the most out of any cosmetic procedure. Proper skincare helps create healthy skin, and it contributes positively to overall appearance. Quality products and regular skincare can also help reverse the negative effects of smoking, poor nutrition, and excess exposure to sunlight.
Used by physicians, Revision Skincare® products contain high quality ingredients that fight against aging, improve the appearance of skin damage, optimize skin health, and help to firm, tighten and lift the appearance of skin to help patients achieve a more toned and sculpted look.
Laser resurfacing uses short, concentrated pulsating beams of light to treat sun-damaged skin and the fine lines, wrinkles and sunspots that go with it. The light energy of the laser removes the outer layer of skin, known as the epidermis, while simultaneously heating the underlying dermis layer. Heating the dermis in this way stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers, which support the skin and give skin its youthful elasticity.
Latisse eyelash treatment
Latisse® eyelash treatment makes short or thin eyelashes darker, fuller, and longer in just a few months. Latisse® is the only product approved by the FDA for the treatment of short or thin lashes. In fact, 78 percent of Latisse® users enjoy a significant increase in lash thickness, darkness, and length after just eight weeks.
Don’t let the skin on your hands give away your age! Worse still, don’t let premature aging of your hands make you look older than you really are. Exposure to wind, cold, and sun visibly affect skin to cause premature signs of aging, such as brown spots, dullness and sunspots. The loss of volume in your skin can also accentuate veins and tendons to make your hands look old.
Hand rejuvenation can include the use of Broadband Light (BBL) to address dullness and spots, fillers to restore lost volume temporarily, and fat grafting to plump up the skin on your hands permanently.
