Whether you want to freshen up your appearance before a special occasion or simply to boost your confidence, Careaga Plastic Surgery offers a variety of non-surgical, minimally invasive facial treatments.

Last month, we discussed the best body contouring options to help you feel confident about yourself and what your body can do. This month, we’re focusing on non-surgical options for restoring a youthful vibrance to your face. Summer is a great time to explore non-surgical options because no downtime is usually required. However, these procedures can be done to freshen up your appearance, whether that’s before an important event or just because you want a boost. Read on to learn more about Careaga Plastic Surgery’s options for non-surgical, minimally invasive facial treatments.  

Injectable Treatments

When you’re looking for a way to contour your face and give yourself a more youthful appearance without surgery, an injectable treatment is available for nearly any concern. 

BOTOX® Cosmetic and DYSPORT® are used to address dynamic wrinkles, which are lines etched into your face due to repetitive facial expressions. They smooth and refine crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, and “elevens,” which are the vertical frown lines between your brows.  BOTOX® Cosmetic and DYSPORT® treatments should be repeated every four to six months to maintain results. 

JUVÉDERM® and RESTYLANE® are hyaluronic acid-based fillers designed to restore volume and smooth static wrinkles in the lower third of your face. They plump and fill lines and wrinkles caused by age-related collagen loss, such as marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and lip lines. They can also be used to subtly enhance thinning lips. Results can last up to nine months. 

SCULPTRA® Aesthetic works differently than other injectable fillers because it relies on your body’s natural collagen production for results. When SCULPTRA® Aesthetic is injected, it doesn’t give immediately noticeable results. Instead, it stimulates collagen production so that within a few weeks, you will notice a decrease in visible wrinkles and an increase in smoothness and volume. Because it works with your body processes, results last up to two years.

Collagen-Boosting Treatments

While the instant gratification of injectable fillers can be tempting, some people are looking for ways to treat aging without the use of fillers. That’s where the various options for collagen-boosting facial treatments come in. From radiofrequency energy to the power of your own cells, Careaga Plastic Surgery offers several non-surgical ways to improve and enhance your skin naturally.  


If you notice that the wrinkles on your face are accompanied by sagging skin, EMFACE® treatments can address both concerns. EMFACE® works in two ways: electromagnetic energy is used to stimulate muscle contractions in your face, tightening the underlying muscles. At the same time, radiofrequency energy gently heats the tissues in the dermis, tightening lax skin and stimulating collagen and elastin production. The result is gradual tightening and overall skin improvement over a period of three to six months.  


PiXel8-RF is another skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency energy, but it is also combined with microneedling to treat a myriad of skin concerns. Microneedling causes minuscule injuries to your skin, causing your body to boost its collagen and elastin production. The radiofrequency energy heats the underlying tissue, tightening the skin. The PiXel8-RF treatment can address fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, acne scarring, uneven tone and texture, and gently lift the eyebrows, jawline, and neck for a more youthful appearance. 

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma treatments also stimulate collagen production, using microneedling or strategic injections to incorporate growth factors found in the blood. During the treatment, your blood is carefully drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets, plasma, and growth factors from other cells in your blood. The remaining serum is applied to your face and incorporated using microneedling or injection, depending on what skin issues you wish to address. Like other collagen-boosting treatments, PRP results develop over time.
