During the winter, there are a lot of people who are looking to get non-surgical facial procedures in an attempt to rejuvenate their look and combat various signs of aging. Non-surgical procedures are becoming increasingly popular as the years go by, and rightly so.
Think about it: why would someone want to get an entire surgical procedure that will take weeks—if not months—to recover from, when they can just get a non-invasive procedure? Obviously, the results aren’t as dramatic or long-lasting when it comes to a non-surgical procedure, but a lot of people are looking for the more subtle and temporary rejuvenation anyway.
Here are some non-surgical facial procedures that you might consider for the winter.
Botox continues to be one of the most (if not the most) popular non-surgical procedure that is available to the public to this day. The reasons? Well, it was one of the first non-surgical injectables that was introduced to the market that provided great results. This product continues to rejuvenate any areas of skin that have begun to show signs of aging.
Essentially, Botox relaxes the nervous system by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles. Naturally, wrinkles and other blemishes begin to smooth out as your muscles relax. With multiple treatments, this injectable can serve as a long-term solution to aging.
Juvéderm is one of the most popular dermal fillers available, having been around for a while now. This treatment is FDA-approved for treatment of “severe” facial wrinkles and folds. There are various kinds of Juvéderm treatments, which you can read all about here.
In general, the treatment only requires around 15 minutes of the patient’s time. Why does it take such a short amount of time? Well, the procedure itself is fairly simple. You will definitely want to get multiple procedures over-time for best results, but each of them really shouldn’t take any more than 15-20 minutes at a time.
Latisse is well known for improving the baseline of eyelashes. Some have already dubbed this treatment as the “eyelash enhancer”. This product is made by the same company who introduced Botox and Juvéderm to the market–Allergan.
There are various options for saving on this procedure as many people combine this with Botox or Juvéderm. Most cosmetic practices will allow some sort of special if you are combining treatments.
