5 non-surgical cosmetic procedures
These days, aesthetic medicine has come a long way, as beauty treatments have been refined and expanded to such an extent that you can now choose from a wide range of cosmetic procedures that don’t require surgery. If you’re looking to enhance the beauty of your face in a way that’s gentle and natural, there’s no need to go under the knife!
Here are five ultra-effective non-surgical cosmetic procedures that will help you restore your youthful appearance…without losing face!
Facial wrinkle treatments
Do you dream of having smoother, firmer skin with a healthy glow and a natural “lifted” look? There are numerous non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can help you improve the appearance of your face. Here are just a few.
Botox is a Type A botulinum toxin (a purified natural protein that’s safe for the human body) that has long been employed in neurological medicine to help control involuntary muscle spasms. Today, it’s also used for cosmetic purposes, as it’s very effective at relaxing the muscles, making wrinkles disappear. Botox injections are used primarily to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the brow and forehead, as well as around the eyes (crow’s feet), mouth and lips. The peak effect is achieved approximately 10 to 14 days after the treatment. To maintain the benefits, the treatments must be renewed every three months for the first year and every six months thereafter.
JUVÉDERM® hyaluronic acid injections
This product is an injectable dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid, a gel produced from a sugar that occurs naturally in the body, acts on the elasticity of the skin. Once injected, it combines with the water contained within the layers of the skin, instantly correcting age-related volume loss. The result? Lines and wrinkles are smoothed, the contour of the jaw is redefined, the cheekbones and cheeks regain their youthful tone, and the lips recover their seductive fullness. The results can last for up to two years.
Non-surgical thread lift
Laugh off the signs of aging with a non-scarring thread lift. An innovative technique introduced in Quebec about a decade ago, a non-surgical thread lift allows you to remodel the contours of your face and reduce the appearance of deep lines in a way that looks completely natural. These ultra-fine threads are permanently inserted under the skin. Acting like Velcro, they gently pull the skin in the opposite direction from the natural lines of your wrinkles. Made of polydioxanone (PDO), which has been used in surgical sutures for a number of years, they’re invisible and safe.
VelaShape II cellulite reduction treatment
Approved by the FDA, the VelaShape II treatment employs a high-performance device that provides full body contouring using radio frequency energy and suction to restore firmness to the skin. Totally non-invasive, the treatment doesn’t involve anesthesia or surgery. This cosmetic procedure is equally appropriate for men or women and is suitable for all skin types. Various areas of the body, like the tummy, thighs, arms, hips and saddlebags, can benefit from this pain-free treatment.
TruSculpt 3D for arms, tummy and legs
Would you like to trim down your figure, firm up certain parts of your body or reduce your waist size? TruSculpt 3D is another avant-garde device that destroys fat cells and firms the skin, all without surgery, anesthesia or injections. An electrode delivers therapeutic heat at a temperature of 45 °C to the fat stored beneath the deepest layers of the skin. The affected cells are then naturally eliminated by the body. The results are impressive and permanent.
