Aging is a natural process that affects all of us. While we can’t stop time, there are ways to slow down its effects on our face. Fortunately, you don’t have to go under the knife to look younger. Non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments such as Botox, fillers, and laser therapy can make a big difference. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at these treatments and what they can do for you.


Botox is a popular non-surgical treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, causing them to relax. Botox is commonly used for frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. The procedure is quick and virtually painless, with results that last for about three to six months. The downside of Botox is that it can create a frozen look or heaviness if done improperly, which is why it is important to seek treatment from an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Marc Wetherington.


Fillers are another non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation. They are typically used to add volume to the face and reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and nasolabial folds. Some common fillers used today include Juvéderm, Restylane, and Sculptra. Each filler is formulated differently, with varying degrees of viscosity, longevity, and target areas, and a thorough consultation is necessary to determine which filler is best for each patient. The treatment session lasts around 30 minutes to an hour and can last anywhere from six to 18 months, depending on the product used. A skilled plastic surgeon such as Dr. Wetherington can create a natural-looking outcome by placing fillers in exact amounts to create symmetry and proportion.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses targeted light energy to improve the appearance of facial skin. Laser therapy reduces fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and scars, and can also reduce the appearance of large pores, uneven skin tone, and dull or rough skin texture. The treatment involves exposing the skin to pulses of laser energy, which stimulate collagen production to make the skin firmer and more elastic. Laser therapy treatments are usually done in a series, with four to six treatments spaced several weeks apart for optimal results. The procedure is relatively painless with minimal downtime once the skin refreshes, and the results may last for years.

Combination Treatments

Combination treatments have become increasingly popular and more effective, as they can create a more comprehensive improvement than any one treatment alone. By combining techniques such as Botox, fillers, and laser therapy, patients can achieve a more youthful appearance than if they were to rely on one treatment alone. This is often referred to as a liquid facelift, which means there is no surgery needed, but a choice of treatments to give that youthful and vibrant facial appearance you deserve. Having an experienced surgeon with a sharp eye for detail is of utmost importance when combining treatments, as precise measurements and treatment planning can make all the difference.
