As we all mature, there’s no denying the effects that aging and gravity can have on our skin. Whether affected by wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage or sagging skin, many men and women are looking to minimally invasive, non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments to combat those common signs of aging. At AYA Medical Spa we provide the top reported facial rejuvenation treatments to help keep our patients looking fresh and vivacious. In the latest statistics reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), there were over 13.4 million minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures performed in 2013, up 3% from the previous year.
Topping the 2013 list as the most performed procedure went to cosmetic injectables. As popular anti-aging treatments among many of our patients, cosmetic injectables are ideal as they don’t require the surgery, anesthesia or lengthy downtime period often associated with comprehensive surgical procedures such as a traditional facelift. Holding the number one spot on ASPS’ statistics with over 6.3 million procedures in 2013, Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport® are muscle-relaxing injectables that temporarily help treat crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and frown lines on the upper third of your face. Botox® and Dysport® results typically last three to four months and are ideal for maintaining a more youthful appearance.
Surging in popularity, facial fillers saw a 13% spike with over 2.2 million procedures performed in 2013. Unlike Botox®, facial fillers address areas of lost volume while minimizing wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, cheeks and lips. Composed of natural substances like hyaluronic acid and poly-L-lactic acid, these treatments are performed in a series of injections with smooth results lasting several months up to two years, depending on the filler you choose. We always help our patients navigate the many filler options available at AYA including top fillers like Juvéderm® Voluma XC, Juvéderm® XC, Sculptra® and Radiesse®. During your initial skin analysis, our cosmetic injectors will answer any questions you have and discuss various treatment areas along with the best filler options to naturally plump up the volume on your face.
Chemical peels were the third most popular cosmetic treatment last year, with over 1.1 million procedures performed. This facial rejuvenation treatment addresses a multitude of skin conditions from surface conditions such as acne and sun damage to fine lines and wrinkles. Our medical-grade chemical peels are composed of safe chemical solutions and are customized to each patient’s unique skin type and condition. Once applied, chemical peels exfoliate dead skin cells and stimulate collagen growth revealing healthy, firmer and more radiant skin.
