Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) February 9, 2011
Dr. Martin Braun of the Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre (http://www.vancouverlaser.com) introduces non-invasive tissue tightening procedures as alternatives to face lift surgery. One particular treatment called Thermage® uses a laser technology to firm the skin's underlying layers and stimulate collagen production. Patients love the resulting benefits of fewer wrinkles, tighter skin, and a more youthful complexion.
"Unlike laser hair removal in Vancouver, which emits intense beams of light, Thermage produces radio frequency waves that help to restore facial contours," explains Dr. Braun. "Many patients want this treatment because it requires virtually no downtime and produces significant improvements in the skin's quality."
The reduced recovery motivates many people to choose nonsurgical procedures for facial rejuvenation in Vancouver. While a traditional face lift typically entails several weeks of downtime, the new less-invasive options require only a few days – or even hours – before you can resume your normal activities.
The treatments are used to target several signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles, and skin sagging around the forehead, eyes, mouth, and neck.
"Some people still believe that surgery is the only way to take years off your appearance," Dr. Braun says. "That's not the case anymore. Today, the less-invasive anti-aging procedures available are highly effective and much more convenient than surgical procedures. Plus, I can customize the procedure to each person’s individual concerns for very natural results."
Another popular facelift alternative includes the use of injectable fillers such as Juvéderm™ in Vancouver. These dermal fillers have a "plumping" effect that adds volume to the skin and reduces the appearance of lines. These fillers contain a substance found naturally in the body called "hyaluronic acid," which gives the skin its cushiony-soft look and feel. Depending on the area being treated, Dr. Braun will choose from 3 different varieties of Juvéderm to achieve the desired results.
"A typical facial rejuvenation treatment can last anywhere between a few months to a year," Dr. Braun says. "Most people find the benefits of these procedures to be well-worth the extra touch-ups after the initial treatment."
