Plastic Surgery Not Your Thing? Try These 5 Aesthetic Treatments Instead
We all want to look in the mirror and like what we see, but not everyone wants to have to undergo plastic surgery to make changes to their appearance.
You may be looking to avoid surgery because it can leave you needing time for recovery and can involve taking anesthesia. Luckily, there are non-surgical, non-invasive aesthetic treatments that require minimal downtime and still offer long-lasting results to boost your confidence.
Instead of liposuction or a tummy tuck — consider the non-surgical CoolSculpting Elite treatment. This non-invasive procedure is FDA cleared and safely gets you the slimming results you want. CoolSculpting Elite can treat areas such as the abdomen, thighs, chin, bra bulge, back fat, love handles, and upper arms.
CoolSculpting Elite targets the fat cells that are right below the skin’s surface with cool temperatures. As a result, the fat cells freeze and die, and over the course of a few weeks, your body processes and gets rid of those cells. These cells are then gone for good!
CoolSculpting Elite procedure is done without the need for anesthesia and has no downtime.
Botox is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that is used to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Common target areas for Botox are forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and between the eyebrows. Botox is a great alternative to having plastic surgery because you can schedule your treatments as needed per your needs and goals.
Botox involves injections into targeted muscles. It lessens the appearance of wrinkles by blocking nerve signals to those muscles. Botox normally lasts for three to four months.
Keep in mind that aesthetic treatments don’t have the same exact results as plastic surgery, but a variety of treatments can greatly improve the appearance of your skin and leave you looking more youthful.
Another alternative treatment for aging skin, rather than a facelift, is a chemical peel. Chemical Peels address common signs of aging and involve the application of mild acids that work to remove layers of the skin. Chemical Peels are a common go-to-solution for hyperpigmentation issues like sun damage, acne, and blemishes. Chemical peels can focus on the tone and texture of the skin as well, which differs from a facelift, but will still give you great benefits for radiant, glowing younger looking skin.
Don’t let the word “chemical peel” or “acids” scare you, because most of what the acids are all derived from are all natural ingredients like salicyclic acid from willow bark, lactic acid from milk, and glycolic acid from sugar cane. We offer a variety of Chemical Peels from very mild (The Mandelic Peel) to very strong (The Perfect Derma Peel) to accommodate all skin types and needs.
Microneedling is another option if you want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Also known as collagen-induction therapy, microneedling stimulates your body’s collagen production by using multiple small, sterile needles to puncture the skin, which signals the skin to repair itself.
This procedure can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin from loss of collagen and elastin, stretch marks, and pore size.
Another treatment that helps keep your skin looking healthy and youthful are dermal fillers. Filler differs from Botox because it fills in. It’s used to contour, plump, and lift areas like lips and cheeks. Fillers can replace volume loss on many areas of the face. Common target areas include cheeks, under the eyes, lips, chin and jawline, and nasolabial folds, known also as laugh lines. The kind of filler you get depends on the area you’re targeting and can last a few months up to as long as a 2 years depending on the filler that is recommended for you by our Aesthetic Nurse Specialist or Family Nurse Practitioner based on your goals that would be discussed during your private consultation.
