A visit to an experienced plastic surgeon doesn’t always mean getting surgery. Thanks to medical innovations, you can now opt for non-surgical treatments. Without the knife, they help turn back time, so you look younger than your actual years.
Furthermore, improving your looks through these non-surgical cosmetic services often don’t require any general anesthetic. Most of them also have no downtime. It’s for this reason many favorably call them “lunch-time” facelifts.
So, without further ado, here are the 5 best no-surgery-needed cosmetic treatments that, when combined with anti-aging habits, can help you effectively fight wrinkles.
1. Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are injectables directed deep under the skin. These can fill in deep wrinkles and laugh lines, helping reduce their appearance. They can also plump up lips for a fuller look, and can even help with hollow cheeks and sunk eyes.
Collagen and hyaluronic acid are two of the most popular filler materials, although the latter continues to gain more traction. Their wrinkling-smoothening effect can also last you from six months up to a year.
If you’re looking for cosmetic services that can make a huge age-defying difference instead of just tightening or smoothening out those lines, dermal fillers are some of your best choices.
2. Muscle Relaxers
Botulinum toxin, more commonly referred to as Botox (for your reference, Botox is actually the brand name and not the medicine itself) is another popular injectable cosmetic treatment. It’s highly sought-after for its ability to reduce wrinkles and expression lines.
The drug has a paralyzing effect on the muscles in tiny doses, which prevents the appearance of skin creases.
3. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are acids that help exfoliate the outer layer of the skin to remove dead skin cells. They help combat the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, discoloration, and even tiny scars. The more potent the chemical peel, the more noticeable and the longer lasting the effects.
You can choose from glycolic, lactic, and trichloracetic peels, so make sure you discuss your options with the surgeon.
Microdermabrasion is available at salons and spas, but you’ll also find them offered by medical professionals. This skin treatment gets rid of dead skin cells with fine crystals applied and sanded gently on the face.
The primary goal is to promote better skin texture, but it can also help smoothen out wrinkles and lessen the appearance of fine lines.
5. Laser Technology
Many of today’s non-surgical anti-aging cosmetic services use laser technology. Laser procedures use the heat from the laser to create ‘controlled injury’ in the skin’s epidermal and dermal layers. This then triggers the natural bodily response of generating more collagen in the treatment area.
Because your body produces more collagen, this extra supply gives the skin a plumper look. The thickening effect helps reduce not just wrinkles and fine lines, but acne scars and stretch marks too.
The more innovative laser equipment can also help improve the texture, tightness, and tone of the skin.
