Best Nonsurgical Options

Stunning no-scalpel Enhancements   

overview

Some nonsurgical enhancements can be alternatives to cosmetic surgery when it’s too soon for an operation, between operations or else the “icing on the cake” after surgery is completed. However they are no substitute for the longer lasting effects of surgery.

For skin smoothing, superficial scars and wrinkles, chemical peels, laser resurfacing and micro-needling are options.

Botox and HA (hyaluronic acid) filler injections are popular but best used sparingly and under the correct circumstances if they are to appear natural. The effects of Botox and HA are temporary.

Other nonsurgical options can be permanent and normally do not need to be repeated, such as sclerotherapy for varicose and other unsightly veins.

some of the Benefits

  • Those who do not wish to have surgery may opt for nonsurgical treatments.
  • Although the utmost care must be taken with all treatments, there are generally  fewer serious risks associated with nonsurgical options than with surgery.
  • Initial cost is often less than for surgery, but repeated treatments do add up.
  • The effects of treatments such as hyaluronic fillers and Botox are temporary. This is a plus for those who aren’t sure they will like the effect.
  • Little or no downtime.

some of the WATchpoints

  • As with surgery, care must be exercised when considering nonsurgical treatments. When botched, certain nonsurgical procedures can be life-changing.
  • While nonsurgical treatments are valid in their own right, their results are not normally comparable to that of surgical procedures.
  • Some expensive nonsurgical treatments produce little visible result.
  • Treatments that need to be repeated regularly can eventually can end up costing the same or more than having surgery in the first place.

MY EXPERIENCE

In addition to my surgery, the nonsurgical treatments I’ve had include tooth whitening, chemical peels, micro-needling, permanent makeup, thread vein sclerotherapy and mole removal. A five percent improvement here, a ten percent improvement there – it all adds up.

What I don’t do is waste time and money on expensive nonsurgical treatments that are very short-lived or have little to no effect whatsoever. And there are plenty of those around!
