Little Rock, AR residents find themselves dealing with many of the same skin conditions common to other areas of the country. Problems like acne scars, wrinkles, blemishes, and excess fat can leave you looking and feeling less than your best. Although many people have gotten great results from plastic surgery procedures, others are looking for alternatives that may be safer and require less downtime so that they can return to their daily activities more quickly and dodge the side effects that come along with surgery. Fortunately, there are a growing number of treatments available that fit the bill. Some of the most popular treatments include dermal fillers and CoolSculpting®.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Sometimes called the “liquid facelift”, dermal fillers are injections of various substances that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This minimally-invasive treatment can offer you significant anti-aging results without the need for surgery. One example of a dermal filler is Juvederm®.
Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that can safely and effectively minimize lines and wrinkles on the face. In addition to hyaluronic acid, Juvederm® contains lidocaine to ensure your comfort throughout your procedure.
Hyaluronic acid is extremely important to the health and youth of your skin. This naturally-occurring substance is almost miraculous in its ability to attract and bind water molecules, holding them within each individual skin cell. The aging process or exposure to sunlight can harm your hyaluronic acid or reduce its levels. Juvederm® is an injection that restores your hyaluronic acid levels and helps reverse the skin aging process.
Of course, your body will continue to age normally before and after your dermal filler treatment at our office in Little Rock, AR. The injected product will be gradually metabolized by your body and require replacement at some point in the future via another injection treatment. Fortunately, dermal fillers do not require additional injections for many months, in most cases.
A Look at CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is another plastic surgery alternative. Rather than undergoing liposuction, which requires incisions and weeks of downtime, patients in Little Rock, AR can freeze away unwanted fat with CoolSculpting®. The procedure is quick and convenient, involving no recovery time for the patient.
You may have heard of CoolSculpting® due to its increasing popularity. The reason that these body contouring treatments have become extremely popular is that they work safely and effectively to get rid of stubborn body fat.
