What are the different types of Facial Rejuvenation Treatments?
The following are the more common types of facial rejuvenation treatments. All of these methods carry their own set of risks, benefits, costs, and techniques.
The following are some of the more common minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures:
Kybella: Kybella is a non-surgical, permanent treatment for submental fullness (also know as "double chin"). Kybella is a prescription medication used to improve moderate to severe fat below the chin. Its active ingredient, Deoxycholic Acid, breaks down fat cells permanently. It involves a series of treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
HydraFacial MD: The HydraFacial MD is a non-invasive resurfacing facial that will enhance the health and appearance of your skin. This multi-step treatment cleanses, peels, exfoliates, and extracts while removing impurities and replenishing vital nutrients to skin. The HydraFacial MD even targets specific skin concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation. The HydraFacial MD is perfect for all skin types and provides immediate results in as little as 30 minutes, that will leave your skin feeling refreshed, renewed, and invigorated.
Chemical Peel: When certain chemicals are applied to the skin, they cause age spots to disappear while tissue appears less transparent.
Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers are used to fill the lines of the face and increase the fullness of lips. They are also very useful in filling certain facial depressions and scars.
Photo Rejuvenation (IPL): Photo rejuvenation is designed to reduce redness, flushing and wrinkle size. Through short bursts of laser light, unsightly veins and dark “age” spots are gently removed the skin. This leaves the skin with a more even tone that looks and feels smoother.
Botox/Dysport Injections: Dysport and Botox are a botulinum toxin that is injected to prevent the contraction of muscles that form wrinkles, thus reducing them.
C02 Fractional Laser Treatment: C02 fractional laser treatment will help to improve overall skin tone, as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, small and large acne scars, and dark marks on your hands and face. The SmartXide DOT uses a C02 laser system on electronically pre-set network of points without removing the entire skin surface as with other systems. The treatment is safe and effective, meaning it can be used for every part of your face, neck, hands even with the finest most delicate skin types. As the laser stimulates the production of collagen you will notice a progressive improvement of your skin for at least six months to one year after your laser treatment.
Protege Elite Skin Tightening Treatment: If you do not like your neck or jowls and are tired of hiding behind turtlenecks and scarves, we have some new technology you may be interested in learning more about. The Protege Elite is a safe, non-surgical device that can help reduce skin laxity or looseness in the face and neck, actually tighten the skin and improve the skin quality without downtime. Using radio frequency, this treatment delivers noticeable improvement and patients love the results. The energy used during treatment heats the deeper layers of the skin to contract stimulating new collagen. While not a replacement for neck lift or face lift, Protege Elite can provide a very nice alternative for those not seeking a surgical solution, or as a supplemental treatment following facial surgery.

Our face is the most distinguishing features on our entire body. However, as we grow older, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of aging appear. Age, sun exposure, smoking, and other factors can all contribute to this appearance.
