Everyone wants to live a long life, but no one wants to watch their body age. In the past, the only way to improve your appearance was by going under the knife. Today, however, Four New Non-Surgical Alternatives to Plastic Surgery are helping people look their best.
Fat is stubborn. Even if you eat all of the right foods and exercise everyday, you may be left with residual fat that just won’t go away. A new procedure known as CoolSculpting is designed to target and freeze those stubborn fat cells. Best of all, the procedure is non-invasive and completely safe.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared procedure that works by freezing unwanted fat cells. When fat falls below a certain temperature, the cells eventually die. Patients should begin to notice dramatic results in about 1-3 months. The results are long-lasting and can be maintained with a healthy lifestyle.
Those who want a face-lift without going under the knife should look into Ultherapy. This non-invasive procedure is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the chin, neck, brow, and chest. Skin becomes noticeably tighter and firmer. Ultrasound energy stimulates collagen production, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Patients with an uneven complexion or fine lines may want to try LED therapy. This pain-free procedure uses colored lights to to reverse discoloration or damage caused by sun exposure, acne scarring, rosacea, and hyper-pigmentation. Most doctors recommend a series of 24 treatments for the best results.
Intense pulsed light therapy, or IPL, is another procedure that uses a vast spectrum of light rays to reduce discoloration. This treatment works particularly well on sun damage, red vessels, and age spots. Results are noticeable after only about 6-8 sessions.
If you want to increase the fullness in your face or reduce the appearance of fine lines, Juvederm may be the non-surgical solution for you. This procedure involves injecting a hyaluronic acid gel into targeted areas. It’s often used to fill wrinkles around the mouth, plump lips, or add volume to the cheeks.
Looking youthful no longer requires complex plastic surgery. New treatments have been developed that give equally impressive results, without going under the knife. Speak with a doctor if you’re ready to turn back the hands of time with one of these groundbreaking treatments.
