Facial rejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment that is done in order to make your facial skin look younger, healthier, firmer and give it a fresh glow. Facial rejuvenation can be achieved through surgical and/or non-surgical methods. Each procedure is different and can vary in invasiveness and result. Surgical procedures include face lifts, brow lifts, eyelid lifts, double chin removal etc. These surgical options are used when drastic changes in the form of the face are required. Non-surgical procedures target the superficial and deeper layers of your skin treat facial concerns such as wrinkles, skin laxity, hyperpigmentation and scars. Non-surgical (non-invasive) facial rejuvenation treatments can include chemical peels, botox, dermal fillers, microneeedling and PRP therapy. To know more about these therapies you can contact your dentist.
Lip fillers are used for Lip Augmentation procedures. Lip Augmentation is a cosmetic procedure
that makes your lips
plumper and fuller. An injectable dermal filler is the most routinely used method of lip
augmentation. Although various
filler materials are available, common fillers today are products that contain substances
similar to hyaluronic acid
(This acid is also naturally present in your body).
Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by enhancing the shape and volume. The effects typically last around six months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips.
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. While dermal fillers are commonly known as “wrinkle fillers,” they do much more than just smooth out wrinkles.

Fillers are categorized by the substance they are made from. Most commonly used fillers are of the Hyaluronic Acid type. The results are temporary, lasting 6 to 12 months or longer before the body gradually and naturally absorbs the particles. Most HA fillers are infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during and after treatment.
Botox is used to counter wrinkles. It is a purified form of botulinum toxin A, meaning there's no botulism risk when used properly. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles by blocking the nerves that contract muscles. This makes your skin appear taut and youthful. These injections show their effect 15 days after the procedure and their effect lasts for about 4 to 6 months.
Chemical peels are cosmetic medical treatments that help improve the skin's appearance. As the name suggests, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it blister and eventually peel off. The new skin that appears from underneath the peeled skin is smoother, firmer and lees wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin has an even tone and lesser pigmentation. Chemical peels also help correct sun damage or photo aging.

There are various types of chemical peels available to correct different problems. Get in touch with our doctor to know what chemical peel suits you best.
Microneedling is the insertion of very fine short needles into the skin for the purposes of rejuvenation. Popular microneedling devices are the dermaroller and the dermapen. Both consist of micro-fine needles that range in diameter from 0.5 and 2.5 millimeters. These needles are used to create micropunctures in your skin so as to stimulate the deeper layers below your skin to produce new skin that is smoother, firmer and with more even skin tone. This therapy also helps make your scars less prominent and closes your widened pores. The end result is younger and healthier looking skin.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own blood cells, i.e. platelets to accelerate the healing of skin and hair. PRP Rich Facial Rejuvenation is a great way to harness your body’s inner healing power to smooth wrinkles, folds and even acne scars for a more even skin texture. Since PRP is harvested from your own blood, it rules out the risk of allergic reaction or skin sensitivity. PRP injections are prepared by taking anywhere from one to a few tubes of your own blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. These activated platelets are then injected directly into your skin. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces. In case of facial skin, it leads to formation of smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. It also reduces your scars and pigmentation. When injected onto your scalp, it promotes hair growth and the new hair strands are much thicker.
