5 Popular Treatments for Looking Younger Without Surgery

 5 Popular Treatments for Looking Younger Without Surgery

Bothered by fine lines and wrinkles? Tired of sagging, crepey skin? Not ready to turn to cosmetic surgery? You’re not alone.

A surgical facelift delivers dramatic results for aging skin, but it’s an invasive procedure that comes with risks and recovery time. Plus, it’s really only recommended to people with significant signs of aging.

If you want to look younger, cosmetic surgery isn’t your only option. Daniel Moghadam, MD, and our team at Modern Aesthetica offer a suite of nonsurgical aesthetic services to smooth wrinkles and revitalize skin at any age.

Here are five of our most popular anti-aging treatments — no surgery required.

1. Botox®

Botox Cosmetic is the number one minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the country. These popular injections smooth moderate to severe wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes. Dr. Moghadam tailors each Botox treatment, and the results last up to four months for most people.

Dr. Moghadam also offers Botox facials, a treatment that combines Botox with microneedling. We combine a measured amount of Botox with hyaluronic acid, vitamins A and C, and other customized ingredients. Then, we use a microneedling device to infuse the surface of your skin with the serum to tighten the skin and minimize pores.

2. Cosmetic fillers 

Like Botox, fillers are an injectable cosmetic treatment. We make both Juvéderm® and Restylane® fillers available at Modern Aesthetica, and Dr. Moghadam can help you determine which brand is best for you.

Fillers contain hyaluronic acid gel. When administered, they add volume under the surface of your skin to lift saggy areas and give your face more youthful contours. Depending on your anti-aging goals, we might recommend a liquid facelift, a treatment that combines the benefits of Botox and fillers.

3. Microneedling

Microneedling is a customizable facial treatment that boasts a host of anti-aging benefits. Using a handheld device with a cluster of sterile needles, Dr. Moghadam pricks your skin and creates microwounds. These wounds stimulate healthy cell growth to give you skin that’s smoother, less wrinkled, and more even-toned.

We also combine microneedling with other aesthetic technologies. Based on your desired results, we might recommend radiofrequency microneedling, EGF microneedling, or a 24k gold facial.

4. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facials

PRP is a customized serum containing elements from your blood. It’s made of concentrated platelets and growth factors that have specialized healing properties.

When used for aesthetic purposes, PRP can minimize wrinkles, revitalize skin tone, and even extend the duration of cosmetic fillers. Dr. Moghadam and our team provide PRP facials, along with microneedling, in a procedure nicknamed the “vampire facial.”

5. PDO thread lift

A PDO thread lift is a one-of-a-kind procedure that mimics the results of a traditional facelift but without surgery. PDO thread lifts improve the look of wrinkles, sagging skin, and lost volume.

In a PDO thread lift, Dr. Moghadam makes small sutures below the surface of your skin. The sutures stimulate collagen production to lift your skin from the inside out, giving you a more youthful appearance.
