Forget Plastic Surgery! Here Are 3 Effective and Non-Invasive Treatments That Will Make You Look Years Younger!
In the U.S., we have built a society that values youth and confidence. But as we age and see our youth slip away before our eyes, we tend to lose confidence.
Some Americans turn to plastic surgery as a solution to the inevitable and inconvenient aging process. However, surgical procedures can be expensive, dangerous, and painful. Now, more and more people have discovered the benefits of non-surgical age-reversing therapies and treatments, including the following:
- Non-surgical facelift: This innovative procedure uses specialized threads that are implanted under the skin to tighten the tissue and lift the face. No cutting is involved, minimizing the risk of scarring as well as the potential for long and painful recovery times. The non-surgical facelift leaves patients looking like themselves, just more youthful and refreshed. The purpose of the procedure is to tackle problem areas such as the jowls, jawline, neckline, and cheeks. This method lifts, tightens, and eliminates sagging skin.
- Botox injections: Botox is injected into the skin in order to smooth out wrinkles. It works by paralyzing the muscles around the injection site. Many patients say that Botox has helped them shave 10 to 15 years off their appearance. However, the effects of the treatment only last an average of four months before the patient must go in for another procedure to maintain her youthful look.
- Laser skin resurfacing: This treatment is great for eliminating wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and scars. The laser penetrates the surface of the skin in order to stimulate the production of new, healthy skin. Laser skin resurfacing is a better, longer lasting alternative to traditional chemical peel procedures. While 1.1 million chemical peel procedures were performed in 2012, more patients are opting for laser resurfacing treatments, which are often more expensive, but yield better results that last for months or even years.
In 2014, the U.S. spa industry reported revenues of $15.5 billion. Men and women alike are taking advantage of the recent advancements in medical and cosmetic technology in order to look younger and feel more confident in their own skin. It’s true what they say: When you look good, you feel good.
