If the thought of going under the knife gives you goose bumps, you’re in luck. New breakthroughs in anti-aging technology can help you achieve your ideal image within a matter of minutes and without lengthy downtime. Whether you want to lose a few inches, refine your facial features, or turn back the clock, consider a nonsurgical solution to these popular procedures:
- Rhinoplasty: Many plastic surgeons are now offering a “nonsurgical nose job” using dermal fillers. Dermal fillers contain a skin plumping ingredient, such as hyaluronic acid, to enhance facial contours. By strategically placing the filler in the nose, the surgeon can accomplish many of the same goals as surgery, including reducing a nasal bump, improving the look of the nasal tip, and creating an overall more proportional appearance. Nonsurgical nose jobs are only temporary, so repeated treatments will be needed to maintain your results.
- Liposuction: People who are bothered by a few pesky inches needn’t resort to drastic diets or complicated surgery. Innovative new treatments like CoolSculpting® get rid of unwanted fat in about an hour with no downtime and no needles. CoolSculpting uses a unique process called Cryolipolysis to gently freeze stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. This cooling process destroys the fat cells, and over the course of several weeks, the fat is gradually metabolized and eliminated from the body. Once the fat is gone, it’s gone for good (as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle).
- Facelift: New anti-aging treatments can create striking results without the use of scalpels. A high-tech procedure like Ultherapy® uses ultrasound energy to trick the skin into acting younger. Ultherapy stimulates collagen growth which helps create firmer, smoother, plumper skin. Ultherapy is great for tightening a “turkey neck” and takes only 60 – 90 minutes. After treatment, you can return to your normal life without any special aftercare. Your results will appear over the next two to three months as old collagen is replaced with new collagen.
