The latest trend in beauty care to turn back the clock is to mix and blend multiple non-invasive treatments at one time to address multiple skin concerns. Combining treatments, such as dermal fillers with Botox or laser resurfacing with skin tightening devices, achieves better results than any one treatment could on its own.
The concept of a “liquid facelift” has been around for a while, usually referring to injectable treatments using different fillers for specific areas of the face in combination with neuromodulators like Dysport to reduce movement that creates wrinkles. However, the “liquid facelift” has expanded to include non-injectables as well, such as intense pulsed light (IPL) for skin tone and texture or Ulthera for deeper tightening performed on the same visit with the fillers. This is the age of complete customization, and that extends to your skin care treatments too.
Products and devices are increasingly specialized in order to treat specific concerns better and more thoroughly. For instance, Restylane Silk is great for lip augmentation, while Restylane Lyft can help to soften nasolabial folds and rejuvenate the mid-face. Fraxel Repair or Active/Deep FX can help to smooth deep wrinkles and acne scars, while Fraxel Dual is great for getting rid of dark spots. We are able to treat every layer of the face, from the epidermis to underlying volume to the deep tissue fascia.
By combining technologies at different depths, more dramatic results are seen. We can even address sagging jowls and necks with Kybella, Ulthera or ThermiRF and, at the same time, volumize the face and rejuvenate the skin. Necks, chests, and hands are often included as well for comprehensive rejuvenation.
There’s no reason to settle for a single treatment to address a single issue anymore, now that there are so many options that work synergistically together. Multiple targeted treatments can do enough for your skin that you can push back that surgical facelift another 10 years or more. These non-invasive treatments, when applied correctly, can result in a fresher, younger look with little to no downtime required, and no incisions necessary!
