Popular Non-Surgical Procedures for the New Year

The new year offers an ideal time to rejuvenate skin and refresh your appearance. However, the new year can also find you busier than ever and unable to accommodate a lengthy recovery after invasive surgery.

If a fresh, more youthful complexion is on your new year’s resolution list, then a non-surgical facial or body procedure may be just what you’re searching for.

Dr. Bryan Armijo has a variety of non-invasive, non-surgical options that will help you put your best face forward in the coming year.

1.     Botox® Anti-Aging Injections

It shouldn’t come as any surprise that Botox is amongst the best non-surgical treatments of the new year. Injectable neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau provide a painless and convenient way to treat the early signs of aging without invasive surgery.

Botox works by relaxing the small group of muscles that cause lines and creases. After treatment, these muscles no longer become active when making facial expressions.

At his three convenient locations, Dr. Armijo administers Botox injections with meticulous care, ensuring complete patient comfort and beautiful results.

2.     Juvéderm®: Vollure

Juvéderm Vollue and Juvéderm Voluma XC contain a smooth consistency gel capable of restoring volume loss in the skin and smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It is composed of non-animal derived hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps restore volume and hydration.

While there is minimal recovery time with Juvéderm, it is advised that for the first 24 hours following your treatment, you avoid strenuous activity, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages. Following these guidelines minimize any bruising, redness, or swelling that might occur around the treatment sites.

The results of Juvéderm can be immediate, and with only one treatment to achieve optimal results, it is the perfect treatment for busy schedules. Results may vary, and touch up treatments may be required for optimal results; however, Juvéderm can smooth away wrinkles and lines for up to 18 glorious months!

3.     Kybella®

After almost a year of self-isolated quarantine due to the global pandemic 2020, you may be among the long list of people hoping to slim and reshape their body for the new year. While diet and exercise are an effective way to lose some weight, there are always those problem areas that even the most rigorous regime cannot quite reach.

Kybella is an injectable specifically designed to reduce moderate to severe fat on the upper neck, otherwise known as the “double chin.” The injection is composed of deoxycholic acid, a compound naturally found in your body that helps absorb fat. Kybella is a perfect alternative to invasive liposuction or surgery.

Depending on the severity of the patient’s needs, the number of treatments required will generally range from 2 to 4 sessions. Most patients have noticed significant results immediately after their first treatment.
