I am a Plastic Surgeon, so I see people who require both Surgical and Non-Surgical solutions. Non-surgical treatments vary considerably: there are fillers which can be injected into thin lips to provide volume, under the eyes to alleviate dark circles and help improve that exhausted look or into cheeks to provide a fresher, more youthful appearance; laser to treat pigment, facial veins, general redness, fine lines and uneven and dull-looking skin; wrinkle injections to treat crows feet, forehead wrinkles and frown lines; skincare treatments such as PRP, skin boosters and needling to assist with improving skin dullness and counteract the effects of aging. And that's just the beginning!
Some of these treatments can be combined as you may often require more than one modality of treatment to address your concerns appropriately. A highly skilled and specialised practitioner will be able to assess what treatments are best suited for your concerns.
Some patients need both surgical and non-surgical treatments to optimise their results - for example, the facelift patient whose surgery removes that saggy, tired look but who also needs skincare treatments or laser to improve the actual quality of the skin so that it has a fresher appearance.
Non-surgical treatments typically need to be repeated.
Some things to be aware of:
If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Buyer beware of cheap deals!
I hope this has helped.
