Treatments That Take Years Off Your Face Without Surgery

Skin revitalization and facial rejuvenation treatments are among the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States: Every year, Americans invest a lot of time, energy, and money in an effort to reduce or reverse the natural effects brought on by aging, sun exposure, and lifestyle.

Ongoing advances in aesthetic medicine mean that you have more facial rejuvenation treatment options than ever before, and many of them can help you regain a more youthful appearance without having to go under the knife.

Here at SoCal Body Sculpting in Montrose, California, we’re dedicated to providing the safest and most advanced non-invasive or minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments available — read on to learn more about some of our most popular procedures.

Microneedling: An innovative skin rejuvenation technique

Microneedling skin rejuvenation uses tiny needles to create micro-wounds on the surface of your skin, which stimulates new collagen growth and helps tighten underlying skin structures.

Also known as collagen induction therapy, this innovative skin rejuvenation technique can help correct or diminish of a wide variety of skin flaws, including wrinkles and fine lines, age spots and other pigmentation marks, persistent under-eye bags, large pores, and loose, saggy skin. It can also be used to help address surface scars, including those caused by acne.  

At SoCal Body Sculpting, we perform microneedling using the Eclipse MicroPen®, the most advanced medical-grade automated microneedling device available.  

With its sterile applicator tip, the Eclipse MicroPen uses 12 disposable needles to vertically pierce your skin, creating fine channels across the treatment area that allow for the transdermal delivery of topical nutrients into your deepest layers of skin.     

The depth of needle placement varies depending on what the treatment is targeting: Enlarged pores and fine lines require a slightly shallower needle depth than acne scars, for example.

Whether your goal is to erase fine lines, tighten large pores, or simply brighten your complexion, microneedling will leave your skin looking tighter, smoother, and more uniform. Most patients notice an immediate glow after treatment.

Because microneedling uses your body’s natural healing response to achieve results, the treatment process unfolds over time — visible changes emerge over the course of days and weeks as your skin repairs itself.

The ALMI® Procedure: Natural regeneration, accelerated

ALMI, which stands for autologous lipocyte micronized injection, uses a combination of your body’s own regenerative cells and fat cells to provide complete facial rejuvenation without surgery.

You can think of the ALMI procedure as the natural answer to dermal fillers, which are designed to help rejuvenate facial skin and add facial volume brought on by age-related facial deflation.

Most people notice the first signs of aging in their mid to late thirties. While it’s true that wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin are all part of the natural aging process, the flattened cheeks and thinning lips that become more common in middle age can make you look older than you feel.

Declining levels of collagen and elastin are largely responsible for the progressive loss of facial volume and saggy skin; to recreate volume and structure and restore a more youthful appearance, the ALMI procedure takes your own sterilized regenerative cells and fat tissue, and injects them in precise locations in your facial anatomy.   

In less than 45 minutes, the ALMI procedure helps restore lost volume and revitalize skin texture and tone. Here at SoCal Body Sculpting, we’ve used ALMI to help numerous patients turn back the hands of time with optimal results.  

NovaThreads®: The non-surgical lunchtime facelift

If you’ve ever wished there was an easy, non-surgical way to tighten and lift loose, saggy skin, your wish has been granted: NovaThreads, a minimally-invasive, non-surgical facelift technique, is a safe and effective alternative for patients who want the aesthetic benefits of a facelift, but don’t want to go under the knife.

Also known as the “lunchtime lift” or a “thread lift,” the NovaThreads lift is a quick, non-surgical facelift that doesn’t involve any cuts or incisions. Instead, the in-office procedure uses hypodermic needles preloaded with sutures made of a medical-grade material that your body can absorb and dissolve naturally.

When injected in the right spots, these sutures act to instantly lift and tighten your skin from underneath, while simultaneously stimulating collagen production.

You might consider having an instant thread lift if you have loose, saggy facial skin that either bothers you or makes you look older than you feel. A thread lift can correct or significantly improve jowls, a double chin, mid-face sagging, and marionette lines, or the long vertical wrinkles that extend down from the corners of the mouth.   

Threads provide instant lift from the moment they’re injected, which means you’ll see immediate results. Because the threads continue to stimulate collagen production long after they’ve dissolved, you can also expect your results to be long-lasting.

Even after the bio-absorbable sutures are completely broken down in four to six months, most patients continue to see significant lifting results for 15-24 month.

The NovaThreads lift is done with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort and requires minimal downtime afterward.
