It happens to everyone. Aging and genetics affect our appearance in the form of loose, sagging skin, wrinkles and folds, and stubborn fat. While cosmetic surgery was the best option in years past, non-surgical options, which can delay the need for cosmetic surgery, are now numerous, effective, and FDA-approved. These include facial plastic surgery and body contouring alternatives which are non-surgical and safe.
Non-Surgical Alternatives to Cosmetic Surgery in Indianapolis
Whether it’s facial aging or unwanted body fat, the aesthetic professionals at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Indiana (LASSI) can help. Find out if you’re a good candidate for these non-surgical alternatives to facial plastic surgery and body contouring during a personalized consultation with our team.
Facial Cosmetic Surgery Alternatives
We can help restore what time has stolen. If it’s sagging, thinning, or drooping, our minimally-invasive, non-surgical options may be the solution for you. These include injectables, lasers, and photo-rejuvenation treatments.
Non-Surgical Liquid Facelift: Facial Fillers & Wrinkle Relaxers
Collagen loss and fat pad breakdowns combine, leading to facial sagging, hollow cheeks, folds, and wrinkles. Even a surgical facelift cannot correct all the signs of aging, as it will not fully restore underlying facial structures. With cosmetic injectables, we can lift the skin, smooth wrinkles and folds, and restore lost facial volume, no cosmetic surgery required.
Fillers used in the cheeks can reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds while lifting the jowls. A little filler in the under eye area can smooth and brighten the eyes. And a little filler in and around the lips can shape and restore lip fullness while reducing the appearance of vertical lip lines. All of these applications work together during our Liquid Facelift treatment to restore facial structure, improve symmetry, and help you look younger.
BOTOX Brow Lift
BOTOX is not just for smoothing lines in the upper face. It’s also useful for a non-surgical brow lift. If your brows are drooping or making you look tired, some BOTOX can gently and subtly lift the brows. It may also delay a surgical brow lift.
Non-Surgical Neck Lift: Wrinkle Relaxers & Dermal Fillers
The face is not the only area which sags. Lines and loose skin on the neck also give away our age. BOTOX can be applied to tighten the neck muscles and skin, and a little hyaluronic acid filler can smooth horizontal neck lines.
Skin Rejuvenation and Tightening: Broadband Light & Microneedling
Injectables are magical, but lasers applied prior to injectables can provide even greater results. Our Broadband Light (Forever Young BBL) treatment can stimulate skin smoothing and tightening, helping you look younger without cosmetic surgery or injectables. Additionally, we offer microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy. This treatment safely creates micro-injuries to the skin, stimulating natural collagen production. This promotes natural skin plumping, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and minor skin drooping.
Jowl and Double Chin Reduction: Kybella & CoolSculpting
Fatty, sagging jowls and double chin fat are hard to correct without surgery, but with Kybella injections or CoolSculpting, we can melt or freeze away these pockets without surgery. In fact, you won’t just delay cosmetic surgery; you’ll avoid it altogether! Once fat cells are destroyed with these treatments, they’re gone for good!
Body Contouring Without Cosmetic Surgery
While we offer tumescent liposuction for body contouring and permanent fat reduction, not everyone is a perfect candidate for surgery. Others wish to avoid cosmetic surgery altogether, opting instead for safe, effective non-surgical fat reduction and cellulite treatments.
CoolSculpting Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
Without cosmetic surgery or injectables, CoolSculpting works to reduce unwanted fat virtually anywhere on the body. CoolSculpting freezes fat to a precise temperature which does not affect surrounding tissue. Frozen fat is permanently and naturally eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system.
Cellulite Reduction with Z-Wave
While surgery can be used to treat cellulite, it’s not necessary to achieve smoother skin. Using Z-Wave cellulite treatment, energy waves break up the causes of cellulite, smoothing skin and reducing dimpling. This is a great treatment to use in combination with CoolSculpting.
