What is the best facial rejuvenation treatment?

Posted at:

In this article, we’ll talk about the best facial rejuvenation treatments, including non-invasive (or minimally invasive) and surgical treatments according to the experience of Living Clinic doctors.


However, it is important to note that this is only a general view of facial rejuvenation treatments, which means that the treatment most suitable for you may differ depending on your purpose, personal preferences and doctor advice for your particular case.


Naturally, treatments differ in cost, recovery time, effectiveness, risks, and other factors, so you should consult your doctor before making a decision.


Start by understanding what we mean when we talk about “face rejuvenation”.


What is facial rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation consists of a set of aesthetic procedures designed to fight the visible signs of skin aging, such as wrinkles, flaccidity and stains, thereby giving a younger look to the face.


As mentioned above, these procedures can be surgical or non-surgical. We’ll then mention some of the best treatments to rejuvenate the skin of the face and neck.


The best treatments for facial rejuvenation

The 3 Best Non-Invasive or Minimally Invasive Treatments for Facial Rejuvenation


1. Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation technology that combines microneedling with bipolar fractional radio frequency (RF) energy. It is one of the most effective non-surgical treatments of Living Clinic to combat fainting of the face. Learn more about Morpheus 8.


2. Non-Surgical Lifting (Facetite)

Non-Surgical Lifting, also known as non-surgical facelift, at Living Clinic, is a state-of-the-art aesthetic procedure, performed using Facetite and Accutite technologies.

Facetite is a complete modeling solution for the face, neck and small areas of the body, which uses radiofrequency to remove fat and give firmness to the skin. Accutite is similar to Facetite in its function, but is especially used in more delicate areas of the face and body, which require greater precision. Learn more about Non-Surgical Lifting.

3. Fractional CO2 laser

The fractional CO2 laser is the most powerful type of laser for facial rejuvenation. It is used for skin renewal, from superficial treatments to deeper treatments. This laser is ideal for reducing stains, scars, stretch marks and improving skin tone. Learn more about the fractional CO2 laser.


Although these 3 treatments are at the top of facial rejuvenation treatments for their effectiveness and safety, there are others that may be as or more effective, depending on what you want to treat and your current skin condition. Learn about our other recommendations:


  • Pulsed Intense Light: It is a treatment that allows you to improve the texture, lighten and reduce irregularities of the skin, including damage caused by the sun, scars, pigmentation, acne scars and superficial vessels. Learn more about Pulsed Intense Light.

  • Hyaluronic Acid: The injection of hyaluronic acid acts as a structuring and moisturizing factor of the skin, allowing to replace the lost volume and thus restoring a younger appearance to the treated area. On the face, it is common to be used for filling wrinkles, eyelids, lip filling and malar filling. Learn more about Hyaluronic Acid.

  • Botulinum Toxin (Botox): More commonly known as Botox®, it is indicated to soften the wrinkles and facial expressions, such as the forehead wrinkles, glabelars (space between the eyebrows), eye contour (chicken feet) and around the lips. This procedure gives the face a softened and rejuvenated appearance,ining the natural look and without altering the physiology. It is also widely used for preventing the formation of expressive wrinkles. Learn more about Botulinum Toxin (Botox).


  • Chemical Peeling: It is a skin renewal treatment that allows to improve or eliminate stains or imperfections on the skin such as acne, scars or small wrinkles. By chemical action the older skin is ‘exfoliated’ and replaced by fresh new skin, resulting in rejuvenation. Learn more about Chemical Peeling.

  • Skinbooster: It is an injectable procedure of hyaluronic acid that deeply moisturizes the skin and brings much better results than those obtained by the use of cosmetics, as it acts on the deeper layers of the skin. Learn more about Skinbooster.

  • Collagen Bio-stimulators (Sculptra and Radiesse): They have been pointed out as a revolutionary treatment in the area of Aesthetic Medicine for the rejuvenation of the skin and combating flaccidity. Bio-stimulants have a similar effect to traditional dermal fillers, but using your own body’s collagen. In addition to treating wrinkles and flaccidity, collagen bio-stimulation can be used to treat scars, stretch marks and improve skin texture.

The 3 Best Surgical Treatments for Facial Rejuvenation

1. Neck Lifting

2. Blepharoplasty

How to choose the best treatment for facial rejuvenation?

First of all, it is essential to decide whether you want to opt for a non-invasive or minimally invasive facial rejuvenation treatment or for an invasively-rejuvenated facial treatment (plastic surgery).


Secondly, consult a specialist to assess your needs and discuss options with your doctor. During the consultation, your aesthetic objectives, medical history and personal preferences will be discussed. This way you will find the best treatment to rejuvenate your face and facial harmonization.


Tips to keep a rejuvenated skin

In addition to professional treatments, it is important to adopt a consistent skin care routine at home. This routine includes regular cleaning, daily application of sunscreen, proper hydration and use of products specific to your skin type. Avoid smoking, stay hydrated and follow a balanced diet rich in antioxidants to promote skin health from the inside out.
