3 Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures That Will Make You Look Years Younger
Not sure the risk of hematoma, scarring, and infection is worth it? Cosmetic surgery doesn’t come without some serious risk. And at the end of it all, there’s no guarantee you’ll love the result.
Don’t want to spend your time and money on something so drastic? There are other ways to achieve the look you’re going for. Anything from Botox (men, we’re talking to you, too!) to dermal fillers can turn back the hands of time, minus the knife.
Turn your spa trip into a medical spa day. Most procedures occur in a quick, outpatient process that can take the same amount of time as a lunch break. Meaning you can leave for lunch, and come back years younger.
Does that sound intriguing? Here are 3 non-surgical cosmetic procedures to try now!
Botox is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment. More than 6 million procedures happen every year.
Botox is a neurotoxin that paralyzes the muscles under the skin. This helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, “crow’s feet,” and laugh lines. Used in small doses, Botox prevents muscles from contracting as much as usual.
Botox is injected right into the muscular tissue, so there is a needle involved. But, results show in as soon as one day, and there is a low risk of side effects.
2. Dermal Fillers
Injectable dermal fillers are one of the best alternatives to the invasive facelift.
Fillers do what their name suggests: they fill in lines. Bothersome lines around the face are filled, effectively removing creases. Fillers can also volumize the face, giving a fuller, lifted appearance.
Lines are filled in with a variety of substances, ranging from fat to collagen. There are many different types of fillers, so make sure to compare and contrast.
3. IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light
IPL removes hair and gets rid of a range of skin blemishes. IPL can remove age spots, freckles, birthmarks, and more.
The pulsed light is a scattered light source on many wavelengths. It penetrates the skin and arrives at the second layer, where the light gets converted to heat. This heat destroys the unwanted pigment.
Or, in the case of hair removal, it kills the hair follicle to prevent regrowth.
These Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures Make the Cut
Without making any cuts.
Some of us don’t have the disposable income (or guts!) required to go through a bunch of surgical trial and error. That $7 billion industry doesn’t need more money! And when you want results without the knife, they don’t have anything to offer you.
There’s no guarantee that you’ll love your Botox or your dermal fillers. But the great news is you can figure that out in an hour, without going under anesthesia. It won’t be as detrimental to your day or your bank account.
Are you tired of wrinkles? Or want to stop them before they even start to show up?
