The days of invasive surgery (for the love of beauty) is on the decline, there’s never been a better time to explore alternative beauty procedures that don’t require going under the knife. Below are the latest game-changing beauty innovations letting you look your best without the fear-inducing invasive surgery.
Cryotherapy which literally means “cold therapy,” is a technique where the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes. Research on cryotherapy is as new as is the trend for the treatment. So doctors do not fully understand all the potential benefits and risks of this beauty procedure. Cryotherapy is popular amongst athletes to relieve pain and accelerate recovery time. In recent years, cryotherapy has been adopted by the wellness industry for its many cosmetic benefits, which include weight loss (it is claimed you can burn up to 600 calories in one 3 minute session) and the treatment of conditions like insomnia, psoriasis, and eczema.
Fix Botched Fillers
It can be distressing to wind up with fillers gone wrong: an unfortunate fishmouth, or an area you wanted smoother and plumper that now looks lopsided or lumpy. Hyaluronidase —an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Juvéderm, Restylane, or Belotero—can be injected to counteract the effects of your fillers.
Also called Hydase or Vitrase, hyaluronidase works by speeding up the natural breakdown of hyaluronic acid, the main ingredient in certain kinds of fillers. A small amount of hyaluronidase, injected precisely, can help fix a mistake that might otherwise remain for months on end.
Mesotherapy is a technique that uses injections of vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts to rejuvenate and tighten skin, as well as remove excess fat. Mesotherapy works by plumping and deeply hydrating the tissue, in turn softening surface lines caused by dehydrated skin. The technique uses very fine needles to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer (mesoderm) of skin. The results are subtle but effective – the intention is to brighten and firm your skin so that it is the best version of its regular self. One treatment will ensure that you look like you’ve slept for a week, and who wouldn’t love that?
Cellfina is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure used to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It’s a minimally invasive procedure. The procedure doesn’t require surgery or general anesthesia. Cellfina uses a microblade technique to target cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. Cellfina is a minimally invasive nonsurgical procedure, so you won’t need to prepare much. Cellfina best targets dimple-type cellulite. This beauty procedure has only been cleared by the FDA for treating cellulite in the thighs and buttocks.
When it comes to these costly alternatives, always take your time, think it through and make sure it’s the right decision for you, not someone else. These are the principles that should guide any of your decisions regarding the cosmetic beauty procedure.
