August means the start of a new school year. Whether you’re a college student ready to begin a new semester of studies, a teacher wanting to put your best face forward for your new students or a mom excited for a bit of “me time” once the kids are back in the classroom, a little back-to-school beauty indulgence is in order.
Jacksonville’s Parkway Plastic Surgery recommends these non-invasive and minimally-invasive, yet highly effective cosmetic procedures to help refresh your look just in time for the new school year.
- Chemical Peel: One of the most popular cosmetic procedures, the chemical peel involves a customized chemical solution applied to the skin. Once the solution sufficiently penetrates the skin, it’s neutralized and gently removed. Dull, dry skin cells are cleared away, allowing for new skin to grow in its place and lending a smoother, tighter, more vibrant look. Results range from mild to dramatic, depending upon your goals and the type of chemical peel you choose – light, medium or deep.
- Microdermabrasion: In performing microdermabrasion, your aesthetician essentially sprays tiny crystals onto the surface of your skin to exfoliate the thicker, uneven outer layer, revealing younger, healthier skin that had been hiding beneath. It’s effective for treatment of light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, age spots, acne and more.
- Botox or filler: Of all the minimally invasive cosmetic procedures available, Botox and injectable fillers are the undisputable top choices. Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows that last year, 6.7 million Botox injections and 2.3 million were performed in 2014, topping all others. Botox works to smooth existing wrinkles and prevent the development of new ones by temporarily relaxing expression muscles, particularly on the forehead and around the eyes. Fillers like Juvederm and Restylane add volume and fullness to various areas of the face to smooth wrinkles and fill hollows.
