Fortunately, Mark Medical Care is here for you with the best non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments that don’t just nourish your skin, but also help you become the star of celebrations.
Youthful-Looking Skin With Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Treatments
Some of the most sought-after non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments today include botulinum toxin (botox), injectable facial fillers, vampire facials, skin tightening peels, and skin resurfacing, among others. You need a proven and well-equipped aesthetic care office that has the ability to customize treatments to your unique needs and combine different treatments to achieve long-lasting results.
In 2020, more than 13.2 million non-surgical cosmetic procedures were performed in the US. Botox topped the list of minimally invasive cosmetic facial procedures, with chemical peels and dermal fillers following close behind. Non-invasive aesthetic procedures are generally preferred to surgeries owing to their cost efficiency and shorter recovery time. Some of the latest and innovative non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments can target:
- Loss of facial volume
- Deep creases and wrinkles
- Dull skin tone and coarse texture
These are some of the highlights of non-surgical medical facial rejuvenation techniques that has made them increasingly popular among women as well as men:
- Affordability: Non-surgical and minimally invasive facial skin enhancement procedures are just a fraction of the cost as compared to cosmetic facial surgery.
- Quick recovery: Recovery time is significantly less with minimally invasive procedures. In fact, you may be able to return to work the same day in most cases.
- In-office procedures: Most non-surgical treatments take less than an hour to complete and can performed in-office without involving general anesthesia or sedation.
- Comfortable: Non-surgical procedures are virtually painless and require minimal aftercare as compared to surgical procedures.
- Minimal risks: Minimal to no risks are usually involved in non-surgical cosmetic procedures since you don’t really need large incisions, deep cuts, or general anesthesia.
With that said, it’s critical that you choose the right treatment provider for your non-surgical facial cosmetic rejuvenation procedures if you want desired results that are safe, optimal, and long-lasting.
Procedures to Tighten Sagging Facial Skin
Cellular Nutrition with Dermapen
Facial skin is the most delicate area of the human body and highly prone to the signs of pollution, aging, and other factors. Dark spots, dryness, sagging, fine lines, and scars can become more evident with age due to lax skin. Cellular nutrition as a medical treatment that involves injecting essential nutrients into the facial skin to provide hydration, firmness, and luminosity.
This is an intensive treatment used for toning, rejuvenating, and revitalizing the skin of the neck and face. The treatment offers the necessary nutrients your facial skin needs to look radiant and healthy. Compounds, growth factors, and essential nutrients are injected at predetermined spots using a Dermapen, a microneedle. In this treatment, vitamin E, vitamin C, silicon, zinc, selenium, and hyaluronic acid are the main ingredients injected into the skin.
A cellular nutrition injection helps to reduce the appearance of pores while minimizing facial blemishes, scars, and small marks. It rejuvenates the skin even if you have acne or another condition. You can obtain ideal results in just 5 monthly sessions.
Benefits of Cellular Nutrition with Dermapen

- Quick and easy treatment with a session lasting only about an hour.
- No negative collateral effects even when repeated periodically.
BTL Exilis Ultra™
Facial skin can easily lose its tonicity and elasticity with age, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. Exilis Ultra™ is a skin tightening laser making use of EFC™ (Energy Flow Control). It combines ultrasound technologies with radio frequency in order to target specific body parts. The device controls the amount of energy focused on a particular facial area to minimize discomfort.
The technology is ultra-effective and ultra-safe. Exilis Ultra™ can be used on almost any body part, but it offers maximum benefits when used on the face. It can be easily used on delicate areas around the eyes to tighten skin tissues and make them look firmer. This non-invasive procedure is FDA approved and doesn’t present a risk to your health. It can produce a revitalizing effect on the skin, with results that keep getting better after each session.
Exilis Ultra™ treatment forces heat deep into the skin. Cooling technology helps in providing maximum comfort during the procedure. Surrounding fat cells overheat with heat penetrating the skin. This tightens the skin and reverses the common signs of aging. Dead fat cells are flushed out of the body through the lymphatic system making it important to drink lots of water.
Heat action during Exilis Ultra™ tightens the skin, adds volume back, and reduces wrinkles by producing new collagen.
Benefits of Facial Rejuvenation with Exilis Ultra™
- Non-invasive treatment requiring zero incisions or needles.
- Reduces fat while tightening the skin to reverse sagging.

Dermapen is used for injecting the PRP into the skin.
Vampire facials have revolutionized medical facial rejuvenation by improving the appearance of aging skin, fading sun spots, revitalizing the skin, and tightening and reducing excess skin. Cellular turnover is stimulated when platelet-rich plasma is introduced within the skin through a minimally invasive procedure. The skin ramps up elastin and collagen production for a tighter, plumper, and smoother complexion.
The risk of side effects and allergies with vampire facials is low because it works with the plasma present in your own blood.
Benefits of Vampire Facials
- Rejuvenating treatment that can plump and firm your skin.
- Improves the appearance of sunspots.
- Reduces the appearance of expression lines.
- Minimizes acne scars.
- Brings luminosity to the skin.

Procedures to Reduce Facial Wrinkles, Lines, and Folds
Belotero Facial Filler
Barcode lines, or vertical lines around the mouth, are expression lines formed because of smoking, excessive gesticulation, loss of collagen, sun exposure, and genetic factors. Belotero is a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid that can help provide hydration and volume to fine lines around the mouth area.
By reducing these fine lines, you can enjoy a more youthful appearance to the skin. In fact, Belotero effects are more aggressive as compared to certain dermal fillers containing poly-L-lactic acid.
The FDA originally approved Belotero in 2011 to fill in nasolabial folds or laugh lines. However, it has since expanded to include a long line of products with different consistencies and ingredients for treating different types of wrinkles and lines. Belotero dermal filler fills wrinkles and folds while softening other lines around the lips and nose. It works on the most superficial layers of the skin to provide natural looking results.
During the procedure, a skin specialist will make use of a fine needle to inject Belotero into the treatment area. Small doses will be injected at a time to avoid any bumps in the treated area. The specialist will prepare the area with local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. This is why you should have the procedure performed by a medical provider working under the guidance of a board-certified plastic surgeon. The effect of this dermal filler is both long-lasting and immediate.
Benefits of Belotero
Belotero is great for fine lines since it is lighter, thinner, and easier to spread.
- The procedure is quick and can be completed within 20 minutes.
- There is no downtime associated with Belotero.
- Results are immediate and long lasting.
- Side effects are minimal.
- It can be used to reduce nasolabial folds.
Radiesse Facial Filler
Radiesse filler injections are bioresorbable dermal fillers made from calcium hydroxyapatite. These dermal filler injections are ideal for softening expression lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth without the need for plastic surgery. Lines around the nose and mouth come naturally with age as a result of loose skin. Facial muscles and skin tissues lose firmness causing the skin to sag.
The aging process results in a depletion in the volume of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin in the skin. Facial features may harmoniously sag as a result of decreased volume. Radiesse contains calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres, which get to work immediately on injection. CaHa contains ions of both calcium and phosphate that are naturally present in the human body.
Initially, the injectable gel takes care of plumping your facial structure. However, as time goes on, the natural substance present in Radiesse works to stimulate collagen production. This makes your skin remain plump over the facial contours. Presence of oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon in the gel also helps in creating a refreshed appearance by mimicking the connective tissue.
A specialist will initially determine the areas that need to be treated. Radiesse can be used to reduce fine lines as well as marionette lines. The treatment provider will use a fine needle to ensure small amounts of the product are injected. This non-invasive procedure can take care of frown lines on your forehead as well as crow’s feet around the eyes without losing natural facial expression.
The results are almost immediate and can last for up to 2 years, making this a highly-sought after choice.
Benefits of Radiesse Dermal Filler
- Ingredients are non-allergenic.
- Treatment is quick and convenient.
- Can be used for filling in wrinkles, acne scars, and fine lines.
- Can be molded to recontour the jaw line, cheeks, and nose.
- Zero downtime.
- Long-lasting results.
The active ingredient in botox is botulinum toxin type A. Botox is a powerful neurotoxin, which relaxes the overactive facial muscles that are causing wrinkles or lines. The FDA has approved botox for the cosmetic reduction of frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet around the far corners of the eyes, and horizontal forehead lines. Skillful treatment providers also utilize botox to treat other minor wrinkles and lines on the face.
Botox contains zero additives or preservatives. What you get is a purified form of botulinum toxin A. The risk of experiencing adverse reactions is minimal as long as you choose a certified and experienced botox provider.
Botox injectables can be used most effectively to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles from between the eyebrows and the forehead. Wrinkles form because of the normal aging process that causes a decrease in the levels of collagen. This results in a loss of firmness, radiance, and softness.
In fact, low collagen levels have also been attributed to sunken eyes and sagging brows, which may require an eyelid surgery or a brow lift surgery. With a quick 15-minute non-surgical botox treatment, it is possible to achieve facial rejuvenation with similar results that last for about three to four months. The areas most affected by collagen loss include the forehead, area around the eyes, area around the lips, and area between the eyebrows.
Botox in-office injectable treatment works on the nerve endings of muscles that prevents them from contracting. It temporarily improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by reducing contractions. It also helps in reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. You can prevent fine lines from becoming deep wrinkles with consistent use of botox as directed by your aesthetic care professional.
Benefits of Botox for Reducing Facial Lines and Wrinkles
- Natural looking and sustainable results.
- Preemptive action against the formation of wrinkles.
- No cuts, no incisions, no general anesthesia or sedation.
- Quick, in-office treatment with minimal to no recovery time.
- Developing resistance to botox is rare.
Procedures for Facial Skin Rejuvenation
Facial peels are among the best treatments for improving dark spots and rejuvenating the skin. This is a medical-aesthetic procedure that helps in promoting skin regeneration and rejuvenation. It consists of performing deep exfoliation on the facial skin by using products specifically developed for eliminating dead cells. Cellular renewal is an essential part of any beauty routine because it helps in removing impurities.
Facial peel helps in the production of elastin and collagen – two primary components related to skin rejuvenation. You can improve your skin tone and texture by choosing a light chemical peel. This can also help towards reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The results of facial peels are subtle, but enhance with repeated treatments. Treated skin will be noticeably smoother if you get a medium-strength chemical peel.
Deep facial peels provide dramatic improvements in the treated area. Based on this, you should still understand that this is not a plastic surgery and that results may not be permanent. The results are different from laser skin resurfacing, a longer lasting treatment.
Benefits of Facial Peels
- Improves the appearance of sunspots, fine lines, small irregularities, and dark spots.
- Returns the skin luminosity while evening skin tone.
- Improves absorption of moisturizers and other skincare products.
Acne is characterized by an inflammation of sebaceous glands and pores, which causes swollen red bumps, blackheads, and pimples. These usually appear on the facial and neck skin, but may affect the back and arms as well. Acne might occur due to hormonal, hereditary, and stress reasons. Uncontrolled presence of bacteria on the skin surface is believed to be the primary cause of acne. Specialized deep cleaning routine can be helpful in controlling the appearance of fresh outbreaks.
Patients suffering from acne don’t usually benefit from regular cleaning. You would need a more rigorous form of cleansing. Acne treatment at reputable cosmetic care facilities include the removal of abscesses and pimples to open up clogged pores. Exfoliation is another part of the cleaning process; it removes dead cells and any type of bacteria that may be blocking the pores and follicles.
In addition, the treatment may benefit patients suffering from rosacea or another form of skin redness.
Benefits of Acne Treatment
- Promotes skin hydration.
- Unclogs pores to prevent further outbreaks.

Procedures for Facial Aesthetic Enhancement
Facial cleansing and hydration performed at the hands of a trained medical provider can provide immense benefits in the form of facial rejuvenation and revitalization. In fact, many experts believe that facial cleansing is the first step for any subsequent treatment to work effectively. External and environmental factors, such as toxins, dust, and pollution, can deteriorate the skin’s appearance and health.
Facial cleansing can prevent the pores and follicles from clogging. This can play a large role in preventing the formation of blackheads and acne. The best part about facial cleansing is that it is completely non-invasive. You don’t need to worry about tiny pinpricks or small incisions. There is no swelling or bruising following this procedure. However, it is important to know that facial cleansing cannot help with sagging and volume loss in the skin.
Each cleansing should be followed with deep hydration to recover the tone, luminosity, and glow of the skin. There are greater benefits to having your facial cleansing performed by a trained specialist working under a board certified plastic surgeon. Professionals use quality products approved by the FDA and specialized protocols.
Benefits of Professional Facial Cleansing and Hydration
- Promotes skin rejuvenation.
- Improves the appearance of acne and pimples.
- Anti-aging treatment.

Juvederm Lip Augmentation
Full lips are an important aesthetic element that highlights other facial contours. They are also helpful in bringing a youthful physical appearance. Lips tend to lose volume with age because the skin cannot produce as much collagen. The lips may lose almost a millimeter of volume every 5 years starting at the age of 30. They also lose definition and elasticity with age.
Juvederm filler consists of hyaluronic acid, which is perfect for adding that subtle yet striking definition and volume to the lips. It is important to understand that injecting lips with filler is an art and science. You should get the treatment only from trained specialists if you want to achieve optimal results.
The success of Juvederm lip augmentation depends on the medical professional to a great extent. They should have the necessary technical skills and experience needed for molding beautiful and natural looking lips to enhance the face. It contains lidocaine for minimizing discomfort.
Besides the lips, Juvederm facial filler can also be used on nasolabial folds, melomental fold, and lines on the upper lip. This low-density dermal filler is a great alternative to fat transfer that may or may not provide the desired results. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the human body and is less susceptible to producing allergic reactions.
Juvederm doesn’t require anesthesia or sutures or involve recovery time. The best part is that you can reverse the results of lip augmentation since the substance gets absorbed by the body’s natural metabolism.
Benefits of Juvederm Lip Augmentation
- Juvederm is comfortable.
- It offers natural-looking and smooth results.
- Results can be seen almost immediately.
- The procedure doesn’t take long.
- Juvederm contains ingredients that are both biodegradable and reversible.
Double Chin Reduction With Exilis Ultra™
Several factors cause an accumulation of fat under the neck and chin. However, not all factors are related to being overweight. Smoking, aging, genetics, hormonal imbalance, and gaining weight in a short period of time can cause a double chin to appear. Unfortunately, this can make you look older and tired.
The only option available for treating double chin used to be an invasive surgical procedure called liposuction. This is a risky and complicated procedure performed under general anesthesia. The surgery also involved a considerable period of recovery time and the need for specialized aftercare, such as using a chin guard. However, double chin reduction through Exilis Ultra™ can provide the same results without the inherent risks involved.
This non-invasive medical option can reduce localized deposits of fat while improving skin elasticity and toning. This helps to prevent the formation of excess tissue. Exilis Ultra™ is a recently developed technique that has attained popularity in both men and women to eliminate double chin rolls and lumps. It allows a patient to enjoy almost the same results of a neck lift. The FDA-approved, fat-reduction technique employs radio waves to target and eliminate fat deposits. It penetrates deep into the skin using thermal technology.
The best part is that thermal energy speeds up metabolic activity of the area as well. Over a period of time, you will notice the fat cells shrinking and diminishing. Elixis Ultra™ also stimulates the production of collagen that helps in tightening the skin. Collagen and elastin are responsible for improving skin texture, laxity, and structure. It makes your skin look and feel better.
Benefits of Exilis Ultra™ for Double Chin Reduction
- Noninvasive procedure.
- Tightens the skin while reducing fat.
- Long-lasting results.
- Doesn’t require downtime.
Laser Facial Hair Removal
It’s possible to eliminate unwanted hair from your face through laser hair removal treatment. Laser technology penetrates the hair follicle – where the hair grows out of the skin. It destroys the follicle from the root without damaging your skin tissue. Laser hair removal can work well even on the thinnest hair, making it ideal for facial hair.
You can notice visible results from the first session. The hair growth will slow down with repeat sessions. Laser hair removal has skin benefits as well. It makes the skin silkier and softer with a pronounced lightening effect. However, it is important that you avoid direct sun exposure for at least 2 weeks to prevent any possible risks.
Laser equipment will produce a beam of light that comes in contact with the hair melanin. The beam of light will be transformed into heat that burns the hair from the root. It is important to note that while laser technology can be used on thin hair, it works best on hair with dark pigment and cannot provide ideal results on reddish, blond, or gray hair.
A few strands of thin hair may grow back in the first month following treatment. These are basically dead hairs being expelled from the follicle. Definitive results are obtained in almost all cases. However, intake of vitamin supplements and hormonal changes may cause a fresh growth of hair. This is a safe technology since it provides the exact intensity and wavelength to destroy facial hair without harming or injuring the skin tissue.
Laser hair removal offers definitive results by reducing hair growth by almost 95%. It’s also useful in improving the appearance of skin and fighting other problems, such as Folliculitis. You should complete at least 8 sessions to benefit from the treatment.
Benefits of Laser Facial Hair Removal
- Quick recovery.
- Does not cause extreme discomfort.
- Effective results.
- Works well on all skin types.
