Now, more than ever, men and women are turning to non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments to tighten their skin, reduce wrinkles and gain an overall natural, younger looking appearance.
Women spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars every year in skin products to delay the signs of aging and help them look and feel younger. Unfortunately, most topical creams and serums do very little to strengthen the skin “beneath” the top layer.
There was once a time when the only way to achieve tighter skin on the face was through a surgical facelift. This method is becoming less commonly requested as the popularity of non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments continue to rise.
Technological advances have made it possible and affordable to just about everyone to boast flawless, youthful skin, regardless of age.
The beauty of non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments is not just limited to their stunning aesthetic results of relaxed, rested, facial features. Non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments are increasingly attractive to patients because they are incision and anesthesia-free, with little to no downtime.
Most non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures are minimally-invasive, are performed in-office and take an hour or less to complete.
While the traditional facelift is still popular, the ease of non-surgical facial rejuvenation is very attractive to those who are seeking a treatment for specific skin concerns or wish to improve skin health below the surface.
Patients who desire a more dramatic result often opt for the surgical facelift to repair severe loose skin that are not possible to repair with non-surgical options.
Dr. Lorenc is actively involved in the research and creation of new aesthetic surgical and non-surgical techniques and procedures for over 20 years and endorses the use of the following non-surgical treatments and technologies:
Forever Young BBL
Forever Young BBL is designed to treat skin imperfections using a Broadband Light (BBL) laser. These include fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and age/sun spots, superficial blood vessels, broken capillaries, and small scars. Regular BBL treatments can result in younger, smoother, healthier looking skin with minimal recovery time, allowing you to continue your daily routine immediately after treatment.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
IPL is laser light therapy which enhances the skin health while correcting pigment imperfections through light energy. It stimulates the skin tissue to generate new collagen and eliminate areas of unwanted discoloration and fine blood vessels that cause redness. Without post-procedure downtime, IPL is a popular procedure to restore and even tone and overall health of your skin.
Chemical Peels work to remove the top layer of skin. This stimulates cell renewal, promoting exfoliation, improving circulation, and restoring the skin’s natural moisture. Chemical peels are highly effective and although you return home immediately after treatment, you may experience a sunburn-like effect on the treated area. The results leave your skin radiant and glowing, full of moisture and hydration.
The HydraFacial MD removes impurities from the skin through painless extraction of blackheads and debris. This fully exfoliates the skin with a crystal-free microdermabrasion. It also infuses the skin’s surface with layers of hydrating, anti-oxidant serums to optimize and smooth the appearance, illuminating your skin.
This breakthrough technology takes as little as 30 minutes and allows patients to resume their daily activities with zero downtime.
Laser Genesis Skin Rejuvenation
With a result of a brighter, even-toned, younger-looking complexion, the Laser Genesis Skin Rejuvenation procedure uses laser heat to address skin issues. This aims to smooth skin, reduce wrinkles, shrink pore size, and stimulate collagen production. Considered a “lunch-time” procedure, patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately.
Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling is an award winning treatment on its own merit. However, combined with the regenerative power of Platelet Rich Plasma, the exponencial effect is visible. The beauty of this combined treatment is that it strengthens the skin while reducing wrinkles, spots and uneven texture. In our practice in NYC, we call it the GrowthFactor Facial.
Results improve over time. You can resume regular activities right away as long as you avoid or limit sun exposure.
Sciton MicroLaser Skin Resurfacing
By removing a very thin layer of skin, the MicroLaserPeel gently revitalizes the entire surface of the skin. It thus improves fine lines, pigmentation, tone, and texture to restore the face to a younger appearance.
Redness and itching typically follow the procedure. By day three though, patients are back to their normal activities boasting clear, even, beautiful skin.
SkinTyte Skin Tightening Laser
Using heat from a non-ablative laser to initiate the body’s natural healing process, SkinTyte is an advanced skin tightening laser approach to achieving smoother, firmer skin, stimulating collagen production which promotes skin firmness over time.
There is a no recovery period and patients can apply make-up immediately after the procedure.
Designed to naturally tighten and smooth skin ideally around the eyes, mouth, and cheeks, ThermiSmooth provides a gentle, but deep heat to stimulate collagen reducing eyelid laxity, and tightening loose, saggy skin in sensitive areas. One can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.
Trademarked by Dr. Lorenc, the SelfieLift™ is a fully customizable facelift to reflect new technology and the many less-invasive options that are available. This facelift combines multiple treatments to give you the look you desire using minimally invasive options. These include fillers, neurotoxins, ThermiTight, Silhouette InstaLift and more. The result is a more natural, less aggressive approach to facial rejuvenation. This also comes with little pain and less anesthesia than a traditional facelift requires.
The Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive approach to dramatically restore the contours of the face. The Silhoutte Instalift is a non-surgical facelift that addresses sagging skin through the use of absorbable sutures. With only a small amount of local anesthesia and no scalpels involved, this one-hour procedure provides a lift that lasts up to 18 months. Results are immediate.
Fillers & Injectibles
One of the biggest trends in non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments is all about re-contouring by volume replacement. Using fillers and injectibles have become the most popular way to achieve this effect with little downtime.
Injectibles, such as Botox and Dysport, dramatically soften crows feet, laugh lines, furrows, and wrinkles. Hyaluronic dermal fillers such as Belotero and Juvederm assist in correcting smile lines and severe wrinkle folds.
Restylane and Radiesse, also fillers, voluminize and immediately provide the volume and lift needed to restore a youthful appearance.
Men and women are also using what is known as fat transfers. This is wherein adipose cells are transferred via syringe from one part of your body into another area that may lack the desired volume.
