Trying to figure out which treatments will best serve you to restore or maintain youthful skin, but not sure what factors you should be considering? With so many options, it can be difficult to understand how they differ, or even what differences you should be looking for. As you ask our clinician about your options, keep these factors in mind:
How quickly do you want to see results from your procedures? Many popular modern aesthetic treatments take longer to show results, but they’re also more consistent in terms of those results, work with your body’s natural mechanisms, and show fewer side effects and discomfort. On the other hand, there are also several procedures which will show ready results nearly immediately after the treatment. Consider the balance of immediacy vs. other concerns when you make a selection.
How long are you willing to be in recovery from your treatment? Some treatments will leave you looking and feeling fine the moment you walk out of the door, while others may involve days of downtime.
Do you want treatments you can forget about after you get them, or are you willing to come back in on a regular basis for touch-ups and renewal of your treatment?
How important is it that you know exactly what your results will be and when you’ll see them? More naturalistic or low-impact approaches often come with fewer side effects, but on the flip side, they also depend far more on your body’s natural mechanisms to succeed.
Are you worried about staying ‘natural’ with your treatments and results? If you want to turn back the clock or simply slow its progress in the years to come but don’t have ambitions beyond that, you’ll find it easier to work with the natural mechanisms of your body to produce results.
