Cosmetic Procedures That Don’t Require Surgery

Rich plasma therapy

Is cosmetic surgery right for you? This is a critical question to ask yourself, and believe it or not, determining the answer will be simpler if you ask yourself just a few more questions.

  • Do you have realistic, and positive expectations?
  • If there are complications, or your expectations are not met, how will you feel?
  • How important is it, and what will it mean for your health, to have this surgery?

Plastic surgeons often ask similar questions before agreeing to perform surgery on someone, in order to determine if they are a good candidate. If you are not ready to take that step, and talk to a plastic surgeon, it could be that you need more time to consider your options. In the meantime, non surgical cosmetic surgery might be a simpler avenue, with less risk for an outcome that you are not yet ready for. These three popular non surgical cosmetic procedures might give you a better outlook on your features.

  1. Facial Rejuvenation Procedures
  2. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments are all procedures that reduce the appearance of blemishes, promote collagen production, tighten skin, and provide all-around facial rejuvenation. The results vary from individual to individual, and not everyone is a good candidate for all of these procedures.

  3. Rich Plasma Therapy
  4. In some ways, rich plasma therapy is a lot like a dermal filler, but this non surgical cosmetic surgery treatment involves separating blood plasma and platelets from your own blood, and re-injecting that substance, sometimes combined with a dermal filler, into your facial skin to tighten, fill wrinkles, and rejuvenate the face. Traditional uses for rich plasma therapy include treatment for sports injuries, nerve injury, osteoarthritis, and cardiac muscle injuries.

  5. Injectable Dermal Fillers
  6. In 2012, dermal fillers were one of the most popular non surgical cosmetic procedures that were ordered. There are different brand names for dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, and Restylane, and the differences between them are mainly in which substances they use as a filler, and how dramatic the results are. Results with dermal fillers can last between nine months and a year. For fine lines and wrinkles, to severe wrinkles and folds, dermal fillers are an effective treatment.

Non surgical cosmetic surgery can provide fast, visible results for individuals who are unhappy with lines, wrinkles, blemishes, or inconsistencies with the skin on their face. It is important to research the effectiveness of these treatments, and also to consult with a licensed provider as to what results and what risks you can expect from treatment. If traditional cosmetic surgery is a step that you are not ready to take, these alternatives might provide you with the less drastic results that you are hoping for. For more, read this link:
