Have you been thinking about plastic surgery, but you're worried about the risk, recovery time or costs? We've got good news! Here are five noninvasive or minimally invasive alternatives to common plastic surgery procedures:
For those looking to address the signs of aging, Thermage is a clinically-proven radiofrequency treatment that tightens skin, smooths wrinkles and produces serious, long-lasting results. From the eyes and face to the neck and body, Thermage offers a noninvasive option to lift and contour the skin in just one session, for an overall younger-looking appearance.
This revolutionary neuromodulator halts the aging process and offers a corrective and preventative option for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. From brow and eye lifts to wrinkle-smoothing, Botox improves the appearance of frown lines, forehead furrows, crow’s feet, bunny lines and more, prevents new lines and wrinkles from forming, and produces natural results that last for months.
A dermal filler used for adding volume, Juvéderm can provide a non-surgical alternative to rhinoplasty, cheek or lip implants. From plumping any place that needs a little more fullness to temporarily reshaping your features, this dermal filler collection produces immediate results that can last up to 2 years.
CoolSculpting targets the stubborn areas diet & exercise can't by freezing away pockets of unwanted fat. This noninvasive procedure sculpts and reshapes the body in the areas you choose. However, the results are not quite as dramatic as those of surgical options like liposuction, and the procedure works best for those already leading a healthy lifestyle and looking for small changes.
5. Liquid Facelift
A simple but highly effective combination of Botox and the Juvéderm collection, the Liquid Facelift smooths out wrinkles, adds volume and augments your face shape in a fast and easy way. With minimal downtime and natural results that can last over a year, it's the perfect nonsurgical alternative to going under the knife.
What's the bottom line?
While plastic surgery will always produce the most dramatic results, when it comes to tightening skin, smoothing out wrinkles and body contouring, there's plenty of less invasive (and less expensive!) alternatives on the market for those looking to make smaller changes. You no longer have to commit to major surgeries with extensive downtime to see real results!
