You may read glamour tip articles all the time, but as soon as they mention the words “cosmetic” and “procedure” together, you probably stop. You don’t have the time or money right now for such a drastic and invasive move like surgery. I’m here to suggest a few procedural options that are affordable, quick, and will only positively accentuate your appearance and upkeep, rather than drastically alter them.
Depending on the amount of makeup you normally wear, and how consistent you are about a specific style, you may never have to worry about applying it ever again. You can get special tattoos accentuating the lips, skin, and eyelids in exactly the color and shape you normally use with your makeup. You can cover scars using the same method and render them almost completely invisible. To do this, look into a permanent makeup school program as a cheaper option, or go to the professionals themselves.
Laser Hair Removal
Once a seemingly far-off and futuristic option, or at least far-too-expensive, laser hair removal today can be quite affordable. With only a small number of treatments, you can completely get rid of hair on any part of your body for good. There can be minor skin irritation, but other than that there are no negative side effects. Check on deals and discounts your local medical salon might be providing, and you can end up getting the procedure done for relatively cheap.
Botox for Armpits
As weird as this might sound, it’s what all the celebrities do before their big night on the red carpet. Injections are made into the armpit to block the sweat glands from producing. It is perfectly safe, and has recently become FDA approved. This is great for anyone who has axillary hyperhidrosis, and often you can get medical coverage on the procedure. It is ideal for anyone who has trouble with armpit sweating, or wants to refrain from staining expensive formal wear!
Dermal Filler Injections
Different from Botox, dermal fillers actually fill in the space where creases or dents form. They are also used to create fuller lips and cheekbones. Depending on the area, this procedure can be quite inexpensive to perform. The most common products are made of calcium hydroxyapatite and hyaluronic acid, but be sure to check with your doctor before undergoing any sort of injection; depending on the materials, you could have an allergic reaction. The results last from three to six months on average, so you’ll have to make a few return visits in the future.
No matter who you visit for any of these procedures, make sure they have the appropriate credentials. Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you feel nervous or concerned. Make sure you understand the number of procedures it will take to achieve certain results, and how long said results are expected to last. These may be smaller procedures, but it’s important to have solid trust in the people who will be performing them. You deserve the best procedure possible and the best results to follow.
