With advances in medical technology and science, it is now possible to achieve the skin and body of your dreams without undergoing surgical procedures. These treatments are effective, safe, and a great way to delve into the world of aesthetics with minimal risks.
Since 2000, the number of minimally invasive procedures has increased by more than 200% and continues to rise to date. One big reason for its popularity is because there is little to no downtime after the procedure.
Here’s a list of the top five non-invasive treatments making the rounds that you can try on your next visit to an aesthetics clinic.
You probably know Botox as a treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. However, the use of Botox extends far beyond that. Botox is now being used to reduce the appearance of pores, treat excessive sweating, refine the jawline, reduce facial flushing, and lift the brow.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is the use of a small needle applicator to puncture the skin in order to stimulate your skin’s collagen production. It is frequently employed in the treatment of fine lines, acne scarring, wrinkles, and stretch marks.
3. Filler Injections
Filler injections are used to either conceal or highlight certain body features. Fillers, for example, are injected into the upper buttocks to produce an instant Brazilian butt-lift. Fillers are also used in non-surgical rhinoplasty, where they are injected into the nose to smooth out a bump.
Do you want a fuller pout? Fillers could be just what you’re looking for to make your lips appear fuller and rounder. Fillers have also been shown to be effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Microdermabrasion can be used to reduce the appearance of keloids, acne scars, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. It involves the use of an abrasive substance or surface to gently wear away the epidermis (the thicker outer layer of skin) to reveal the newer skin beneath, making it appear more even and brighter.
Many individuals suffer from low self-esteem as a result of stretch marks and cellulite. Fortunately, non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments such as laser resurfacing can help to improve the appearance of these conditions.
Laser resurfacing uses a powerful laser to remove and treat skin conditions such as age spots, cellulite, and stretch marks by removing the outer layer of the skin gently, in a manner similar to Microdermabrasion, to reveal the healthier-looking skin beneath.
Contrary to popular belief, the side effects associated with laser resurfacing are low. The only side effects you may encounter are some redness or skin sensitivity. But these side effects should be gone within a day or two.
The Future of Non-Surgical Procedures
Non-surgical treatments are here to stay due to the short amount of downtime required after each treatment. However, as with any other medical procedure, consult with a practitioner before deciding on a non-invasive treatment to undergo.
