Innovations and new technologies in cosmetic surgery are emerging more quickly than ever before. The public interest in nonsurgical cosmetic procedures has fueled the search for new technology with more applications, which ultimately leads to better and more efficient products and devices. It may be difficult for the public to decipher which highly publicized minimally invasive procedures can be effectively performed with little to no down time. This section describes the techniques that are available to patients at MetropolitanMD. In general, the nonsurgical procedures will provide a more subtle change than a surgical tightening or lift. The recovery is usually limited to mild swelling and bruising with little pain, and patients can return to work and normal activities quickly.
As patients age, the collagen in the skin that provides volume and smooth contours begins to break down. As a result, wrinkles, lines and folds appear and worsen with time. Sun, lifestyle behaviors, environmental factors and stress can make the skin feel rough, tired and lifeless.
Popular nonsurgical rejuvenation techniques include injectables, chemical peels and energy-based systems such as lasers and radiofrequency devices. The benefits include smoother skin texture and added volume with excellent results. The results are usually a temporary solution and will commonly require “touch-ups” in order to maintain the youthful and improved appearance.
At MetropolitanMD, you will find comprehensive nonsurgical treatment options and aesthetic services to help you look and feel your best.
