With today’s modern medicine, more people than ever are able to get cosmetic surgery to feel more like their true selves. However, what about people who want to avoid surgery but still see results? Recent advancements have made all of the following non-surgical cosmetic procedures possible; check them out and see if you’d try one for yourself.
Botox and fillers
When it comes to non-surgical cosmetic treatments, Botox has become something of a household name. Generally, Botox is injected in areas to prevent wrinkles from forming and is most frequently used on the forehead and other areas of the face prone to wrinkles. Botox results normally last around three to six months, and usually follow-up treatments are recommended. Similar to Botox, fillers can be injected into certain areas of the face to create the appearance of surgical procedures, such as a nose job. However, because this is done by injection, no surgery is necessary.
Kybella and fat reduction
Kybella is a relative newcomer to the world of non-surgical cosmetic procedures. This injectable is specifically designed to destroy fat cells, which are then naturally flushed out through the body’s immune system. The results are permanent, which could be why the price tag is relatively high. Other non-surgical treatments include Coolsculpting, where fat cells are killed by freezing and processed, again, through the immune system. This is most commonly done under the chin to slim the face, but can be used elsewhere too.
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is exactly what it sounds like, and is increasing in popularity. Lasers are used to destroy the hair follicles, leading to permanent hair removal without hair regrowth. While this is most frequently used on the legs and sometimes underarms, many celebrities will use this treatment for unwanted facial hair to create flawless, Instagram-ready skin.
These are just a few of the non-surgical cosmetic trends that are taking the celebrity world by storm today, with many others growing in popularity by the day. Would you ever consider getting one of these procedures done? Does avoiding surgery make cosmetic procedures easier, or is it still too big of a leap?
