Many of us are now working from home and for most, that also means participating in lots of Zoom meetings. While interacting with colleagues while wearing sweats is a big perk, constantly seeing your own face on screen might have you wishing to make a few adjustments to your appearance.
The good news is many of the most effective facial treatments are non-surgical and provide immediate or nearly immediate results. Here are our top solutions.
Improving the eyes and brows
Botox® Cosmetic treatments are the most popular non-surgical treatment in the country; they are safe, quick, and require no downtime. We can use Botox to eliminate the lines that can make you look angry, stressed out, or tired during video meetings when you’re merely concentrating. Results are noticeable within a few days after treatment and last 4 to 6 months.
Enhancing the lips and smile
Want to showcase your smile or eliminate lines around your mouth? Injectable fillers like Juvederm, Volbelle, or Vollure can restore volume and improve the contour of your lip line. Based on hyaluronic acid, a completely natural hydrating substance already found in your skin, these fillers can be used to enhance both plumpness and definition.
Adding volume to the cheeks
High, firm cheeks can provide a subtle yet stunning boost to your facial appearance, making your face appear more dimensional on screen. Additionally, because light bounces off raised parts of the face, augmenting the cheeks will reflect more light into your eyes, making them appear brighter. The long-lasting filler Juvéderm Voluma XC is perfect for the cheeks and gives the face a refreshed look.
Improving the skin’s appearance
Video conferencing might not be up close and personal enough to show your pores, but sun damage and blemishes are often visible.
One excellent way to address skin issues is with the Eclipse MicroPen™ microneedling system. This advanced form of microneedling uses hundreds of very thin, tiny needles to puncture microscopic openings in the upper layer of the skin’s surface. This process triggers a healing response, and, in turn, increases collagen and elastin production. AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch is another advanced form of microneedling. AQUAGOLD enhances results by delivering anti-aging and skin refining serums into the skin at the same time. Whatever technology you choose, a series of 3 to 6 medical microneedling treatments can help eliminate fine lines, minimize acne scars, and fade dark spots, all without abrasives, chemicals, or heat.
Any of the above treatments can be combined with a relaxing HydraFacial MD®. It gently cleanses pores with water and can be combined with specialized skin-boosting serums. Afterward, you’ll look like you’ve been on vacation!
