Aesthetic procedure such as facelifts and liposuction, have become popular over the past few years among men and women alike. People realize that these procedures can help them feel more confident about their bodies, resulting in higher self-esteem and better relationships with friends and coworkers. As a bonus, many of these procedures are minimally invasive and can be done in a single day, making them an excellent choice for those who don’t have much time to spare.
Why choose aesthetics?
There are two main reasons why people choose to undergo aesthetic procedures. First, if you’re unhappy with how you look or your body feels, it can affect your everyday life. Second, if you want to be healthier and more physically fit but aren’t getting results with diet or exercise alone, consider taking things a step further with medical help from an experienced cosmetic surgeon. All surgical procedures carry some degree of risk, so weighing up potential outcomes before making any decisions is essential.
Laser hair removal
If you shave regularly, unwanted hair can grow back very quickly. Laser hair removal, however, prevents hair from growing back. This procedure uses lasers to remove all traces of unwanted hair from the body effectively. This permanent treatment requires several sessions before all traces of hair have been removed. During these sessions, your technician will gradually increase heat levels until they reach a point that damages your follicles. As soon as they’ve been disabled, new hairs will not be able to grow through them.
The first option most people consider when thinking about aesthetic procedures is teeth whitening. According to Dr. Eileen O’Brien, DDS, MSD, teeth bleaching has been around since the 1960s.
She says that we now have lasers that can help us achieve a more natural-looking result in less time.
The process can take as little as one hour, depending on the severity of the patient’s stains and how much time they want to spend with their teeth in a tray with bleaching gel or light.
There is some tooth sensitivity after bleaching, but it usually subsides after one week.
Laser skin treatments
Lasers used to be reserved only for surgeons. Now, they’re available in med spas and salons—and you can use them at home. Lasers smooth out fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production beneath your skin. The downside is that lasers will never get rid of your crow’s feet. But if you have a box of Botox at home, you can use it to fill deep creases before lasered treatments. Another popular treatment for the face is Ultherapy. It’s not technically a laser but an ultrasound machine. Ultrasound therapy stimulates collagen production, which plumps up the thinning skin on your face and neck. You don’t need anesthesia or any downtime after the procedure; Ultherapy takes about 20 minutes to complete.
Many patients who want something more permanent than laser treatments turn to dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvederm.
According to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of women who get breast implants has been increasing over time. In 2013, around 226,000 women received implants. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says one possible reason for that rise is the increased use of silicone gel implants—they’re safer than saline and last longer. The FDA first approved silicone gel-filled implants in 1992. They offer a more natural feel than saline implants because they feel like real breasts. Saline implants are filled with salt water and must be replaced every ten years.
If you have had children, you may need a mommy makeover after your kids grow up. A mommy makeover includes plastic surgery procedures such as liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, breast lift surgery, and facial rejuvenation techniques such as dermabrasion or laser skin resurfacing to improve your appearance after childbirth.
Injectables and fillers
Many patients, especially women, undergo injectables or fillers to maintain a more youthful appearance. Injectables are commonly used in areas of concern, such as nasolabial folds (the lines that run from your nose to your mouth), cheeks, or chin. Fillers can be used to smooth out hollows under the eyes or any other part of your face where the skin has lost its elasticity. Dermal filling is another type of procedure that can help you look younger. You may have these injections if you’ve lost weight and want to restore volume to your skin, if you’ve experienced severe sun damage and want to heal marks left behind, or if you’ve experienced sudden facial trauma like an injury or surgical procedure. Chemical peels: Chemical peels use acids or enzymes that dissolve damaged skin cells and stimulate the production of new ones, leaving a fresher-looking complexion behind.
injections of Botox
We believe cosmetic surgery is the “Big Daddy” of all aesthetic operations. In the previous five years, Botox® has dramatically increased in popularity.
These days, everyone’s favorite star is involved. Additionally, the procedure is far less expensive than plastic surgery. With a non-invasive process, this one produces impressive results.
In fact, since 2000, the number of treatments conducted annually has climbed by about 90%!
It is so simple to complete your treatment that you might do it over your lunch hour. But make sure it is done by someone who is qualified and has the expertise — the outcomes will be much better!
The toxin works its magic by shutting off nerve terminals to the skin, thus enabling the skin tone to grow drastically. This is the direction you should go if you want to seem younger.
