What are some non-invasive options for facial rejuvenation?

There are many noninvasive options for facial rejuvenation. The most important first step is to see a trained aesthetic dermatologist to have an assessment. He or she should help guide you to an overall improvement -- everything from skin care to the best devices to help resurface and tighten, to the right neuromodulator and filler as needed. Your doctor should help you assess your most beautiful features and discuss how to celebrate and enhance them. The goal is always to help you look like the best version of yourself and to help you age truly gracefully, not helplessly..
