It’s a fact of life that as we get older, our skin begins to acquire wrinkles. This is an unfortunate circumstance that many try to defy by using plastic surgery; and while surgery may do the trick to fix our problems, it isn’t the only solution in a lot of cases. There are many non-surgical wrinkle treatment methods we can use to help us deal with them, and these can even negate the need to go under the knife. If you are concerned about your looks and are eager for ways to get rid of your wrinkles without highly invasive techniques, the experts at Premiere Center for Health and Wellness in Cincinnati can assist you with finding a non-surgical wrinkle treatment.
Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Methods
The difference between surgical and non-surgical methods is exactly as it sounds – one uses surgery while the other one doesn’t. Surgical procedures include techniques such as plastic surgery, where surgery is used to reconstruct or alter certain parts of the body. This can include procedures such as facelifts, neck lifts, and eyelifts. A non-surgical wrinkle treatment is one that includes injections or facial treatments such as chemical peels, which do not require any cutting or general anesthesia. They work well to reduce wrinkles, but are less permanent than surgery.
Who is a Good Candidate for Non-Surgical Treatment?
Almost all non-surgical treatments are safe for almost anyone to use; thus, if you have fine lines or wrinkles (mainly on your face or neck) that you are unhappy with, you could be a prime candidate for a non-surgical wrinkle treatment at our office. One thing to keep in mind is to have realistic expectations about what can be achieved through any kind of wrinkle treatment.
