Your face is one of the most noticeable parts of your body; therefore you want it to look as good as possible. Unfortunately, as you age, the elasticity and collagen in your skin declines resulting in laugh lines, fine lines, crow’s feet, sagging skin, wrinkles, age spots, and other skin conditions. Smoking, poor diet, hormones, pollutants, health conditions and excessive sun exposure can also cause your skin to break down. Although it is expected that your skin will change over time, there are things that you can do to preserve your healthy, youthful appearance. Cosmetic procedures like facial rejuvenation treatments can help you regain your fresh, vibrant appearance.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (2014), approximately 15 million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are performed each year in the United States. The total has risen approximately 5% each year since 2011. In addition, Botox, microdermabrasion and chemical peels have been recognized as the top three facial rejuvenation procedures in the United States. Contrary to popular belief, not all facial rejuvenation procedures involve surgery. While dermabrasion and facelifts are considered surgical procedures, facial rejuvenation procedures like chemical peels, Botox and microdermabrasion are minimally invasive and do not include surgical methods.
In other words, minimally invasive procedures do not require anesthesia or incisions. Moreover, non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures often require an abbreviated recovery period. In the past few years, cosmetic enhancement procedures like facial rejuvenation have steadily increased in popularity. If you are interested in facial rejuvenation, it is important that you research your chosen procedure and schedule a consultation with a dermatologist, plastic surgeon or licensed aesthetician. During the consultation a medical professional will explain the benefits, risks, costs and various facial rejuvenation procedures with you.
It is important to note that if you decide to have facial rejuvenation surgery, you will not be able to change your mind once the cosmetic procedure is over. Minimally invasive facial rejuvenation cosmetic procedures are normally temporary; therefore there is a good chance that the effects will eventually wear off. If are considering having a facial rejuvenation cosmetic procedure performed – you have come to the right place. This article will explain the benefits of having facial rejuvenation treatment.

Some facial rejuvenation treatments have fairly quick recovery times, while others have a longer down time. Moreover, the length of the results varies amongst facial rejuvenation procedures – some treatments may need to be repeated monthly, while others may only need to be repeated every 6 to 12 months.
