Cosmetic surgery has been one of the most progressive areas in the medical field, always keeping up with the different demands and expectations of patients who want to look their best while appearing natural and healthy.
Some of the most popular advancements in cosmetic technology is the non-surgical facial rejuvenation program. It is highly recommended due to the minimal invasive nature of these procedures, ensuring the optimal natural look. There are several procedures for this program, such as Botox, Fillers, Threadlift, and skincare like chemical peels and microdermabrasion, strategically executed across multiple sessions depending on individuals’ requirements and doctor’s advice.
When do I consider Facial Rejuvenation?
There are many reasons why one will seek help and treatment from facial rejuvenation. But some of the more common ones are as follows:
- To reverse signs of aging such as face or neck sagging and restore a more youthful appearance
- Sagging skin does not limit to merely face and the neck. It can also happen to upper eyelids and eyelid bags.
- Losing volume in your cheekbones and contour along your jawline
- Appearance of crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes, folds around your mouth and frown lines in your forehead
Top Non-Surgical Procedures
The most well-known procedure is definitely the Botox treatment which is very effective in helping to temporarily reduce or eliminate fine lines in the face including frown lines, forehead creases and crow’s feet. What Botox does is that it paralyses the muscles that contribute to the wrinkles. There is not a need to worry about the paralysis as it is only temporary. By doing so, the face ends up looking fresher, younger and smoother.
Another popular procedure is thread lifting, a no surgery face lifting technique that helps to contour and lift your face. Thread lift is widely known as the “lunch hour face lift” as its fast and non-invasive nature can be performed within the hour with minimal pain and almost no downtime at all. The effects as instantaneous and has a more lasting effect as compared to dermal fillers.
To come out of the doctor’s clinic with a bright, fresh and youthful skin, one of the methods patients tend to go for is the chemical peels procedures. In this treatment, the skin will be in contact with a chemical that causes the skin to peel, revealing the new skin which is smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. There is very little or no pain involved, but it is always highly advised to wear sunscreen and stay out of the sun for a few days to allow a more prolonged effect of the procedure.
What should I be asking my surgeon?
It is crucial you know what you are getting into before moving forward with the program. By asking questions and being proactive in your treatment, it helps you to understand the risks and benefits of each procedure, therefore ensuring that you make right and informed decisions. Here is a list of questions that you may want to consider asking your surgeon to help you have a better idea:

- What will be the costs of the entire program? What are the payment plans and methods?

- What are the risks and complications and how can I handle them without the presence of a medical professional?
- What happens if the outcome of the procedures do not meet my expectations? What are my options and what else can be done?
