3 Non-Invasive Cosmetic Procedures To Talk With Your Plastic Surgeon About

Posted on: 27 December 2018

There's a difference between aging gracefully and aging like the rest of the world. If you have started to show common signs of aging, like a loss of volume and elasticity in your skin, then you may be wondering what on earth you can do for your skin. Although there are a variety of surgical treatments that are available, surgery isn't necessarily for everyone. Luckily, there are a variety of different non-invasive procedures that you can talk to your plastic surgeon about. Are you ready to learn a little bit more? If so, then read on. 


Botox has been one of the most popular noninvasive treatments for the past several years, and it isn't showing any sign of slowing down anytime soon, but why? Botox is a neurotoxin, which works to temporarily soften the muscles in your face and forehead. This temporarily gets rid of your fine lines and wrinkles. With several injections across your forehead and around your eyes, you can get results that last anywhere from 3-5 months on average. 


Another non-invasive procedure that you may want to talk to your plastic surgeon about is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are usually made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. As we age, our body stops producing hyaluronic acid, which means that your skin stops looking as youthful. When your plastic surgeon uses hyaluronic acid-based fillers in your skin, however, it will give you more youthful looking skin nearly immediately. Plus, the really fun thing about dermal fillers is that they can be used in the cheeks and lips, around the mouth, and even on the chin. 


Laser isn't just good for getting rid of hair. In fact, it can be used for all sorts of treatments, including getting rid of sun spots, tightening the skin, and helping increase collagen production. Depending on the results that you want, your plastic surgeon will determine what kind of laser will leave you with the best-looking results. 

Having smoother, more youthful skin doesn't mean that you have to undergo surgery. In fact, more and more people are opting for non-invasive procedures these days because they're fast, less risky, and more affordable. If you want to learn more about these non-invasive procedures, or if you want to schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon, contact one today. During your consultation, they will go over all of these options and more.
