    If you hate the idea of using unnecessary drugs to make your skin look younger or fresher, then Eric Schweiger, MD, founder of Schweiger Dermatology Group has great news for you. “Less invasive methods and the development of new devices means that we don’t have to introduce foreign substances into the skin to turn back the clock,” says Eric Schweiger, MD, founder of Schweiger Dermatology Group.

    Dr. Schweiger shared a few of the most effective new non-toxic beauty treatments with us.

    Non-toxic beauty treatments:

    Skin Tightening Ultrasound

    Ultherapy is the first non-invasive procedure specifically cleared by the FDA to improve fine lines and wrinkles on face, chest, and neck. The treatment uses ultrasound to build new collagen, and tone and lift skin.

    Collagen is the protein that gives skin the supple, elastic qualities most associated with youth. “We can now harness this power to tighten skin under the chin and even lift the brow with none of the downtime and risks associated with surgery,” says Dr. Schweiger. “You will look refreshed immediately after treatment, and the collagen stores will build up gradually over a few months, which is when the full aesthetic results will be visible.”

    Laser Resurfacing

    Laser Genesis is a multi-purpose fractional laser that addresses a vast range of skin concerns including large pores, wrinkles, scars and rosacea – all in one simple treatment. “Genesis is not only good for reducing acne scarring, but for total facial rejuvenation, plus there’s no downtime, says Dr. Schweiger. Treatments takes only 15-20 minutes and three sessions are recommended for optimal results.

    Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

    PRP is otherwise known as the “vampire facial”. Kim Kardashian propelled this treatment into popularity with her shocking selfie. During treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin.
