3 Benefits of Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures

1. Quick, Cheap and Easy

There’s no denying that when we look great, we feel great. It’s little wonder that more people than ever are realizing the benefits of non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Procedures such as Botox, dermal fillers, and laser hair removal can work wonders on our appearance, despite being quicker, cheaper and easier than more advanced surgical procedures.

Botox, for example, is the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the western world. Often, you’ll only need a quick evaluation from the surgeon to ensure you’re a suitable candidate from the procedure. From there, it simply involves a few injections and you’re good to go.

Botox is priced per unit. The surgeon will explain to you how many units they recommend depending on your desired outcome. You can typically expect to pay between $10 and $20 per unit. Most surgeons will recommend 10 to 20 units on each area of the face.

Dermal fillers, which can treat wrinkles around the mouth and chin as well as plumping thin lips, will typically cost a few hundred dollars. As with Botox, the procedure is similarly quick and simple.   

There’s no need to spend days preparing for the surgery, signing endless forms, or having to book time off work. What’s more, with each of these treatments, is that the effects will be noticed within 72 hours.  

2. Less Risks, Less Pain, Faster Recovery

Although the effects of plastic surgery, facelifts, and other surgical procedures are typically longer lasting, there is a lot more investment from the patient. There is not only a greater financial investment, but emotional investment and time investment too.

There is a far greater chance of complications when you go under the knife. You can expect to have to book a couple of weeks off work in order to recover. The recovery time will usually involve taking care of a very sore and rough-looking face. That’s assuming everything goes without a hitch.

Common side-effects of botched plastic surgery operations include permanent scarring, hematoma, nerve damage or infection – hardly something you would want on your face.

If you’re worried about the risks of plastic surgery, non-surgical treatments are far more likely to be suitable for you.

The likelihood of complications with Botox, for example, are far smaller than with facial surgery. It only involves a few injections in the face, after all. The most common side-effects include minor redness, bruising, or swelling. There is a small risk of the Botox spreading too far into areas of the face that wasn’t intended for them to reach. This can potentially cause side-effects such as droopy eyelids. As the effects of non-surgical procedures are temporary, there is need to worry about unwanted side-effects being permanent. You can expect bruises and swelling to disappear within a few days.

3. Results You Can Be Proud Of

The main reason that non-surgical procedures such as Botox, dermal fillers and the like are so popular across the globe is that the results are comparable to more dramatic surgeries.

Thousands of patients have come out of these procedures feeling more confident in how they look, with barely any side-effects to worry about. On some patients, these procedures can wipe years off their appearance, giving them a new lease of life.  

The results are temporary, but the simplicity of the procedures means that patients are typically happy to keep coming back for a top-up again and again.
