What are you looking forward to this summer? Maybe you imagine yourself sitting on a beach somewhere, or maybe you’re an avid festival or concert-goer. Whatever you have in store, looking your best, and feeling confident means you can fully enjoy your summer without feeling self-conscious in your own skin. Not everyone is ready for a surgical procedure to get “the look” they’re after, and that’s okay. Non-invasive plastic surgery options are plenty; these procedures can be done in a doctor’s office for big results that enhance your best features. Here’s Look Younger’s line-up of minimally invasive procedures to consider so you are summer-ready and feeling great about yourself.
Even if you wait until the last minute before summer hits, injectables can help improve your looks in minutes. Lip filler is one treatment that many people like to have done to improve their smile and create fuller lips with more definition. Others may opt for facial fillers around the eyes to treat bags and wrinkles, to wake up tired-looking eyes. Injectables can plump up sagging areas of the face and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles for a younger look. Some products take a week or two to provide full results while others are noticeable immediately, so you’ll want to plan accordingly for your summer activities.
If you’ve been thinking about getting a facelift but waited too long and now summer is around the corner, consider dermabrasion instead. This non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles for a softer, healthier appearance.
This procedure safely removes the top layer of skin with a rotating brush or a scraping knife for a smoother complexion. While a facelift has a longer recovery period, following dermabrasion it only takes about 10-14 days for the swelling and redness to reduce. Skin will fully return to its normal color within a few weeks, so as long as you plan to have your procedure about one month ahead of time and pack plenty of sunscreens you can debut your fresh new face over the summer.
One of the most popular cosmetic treatments used in the US, BOTOXⓇ helps people look younger by relaxing facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This procedure is used on frown lines, around the eyes and mouth, and along the jawline. Swelling is minimal and goes away in a few hours, so you can schedule this anytime. Full results are seen within a couple of weeks to help you look refreshed and youthful.
Liquid rhinoplasty is also known as a liquid nose job, and it can enhance the way your nose looks without surgery. This procedure uses dermal fillers to alter the shape or increase the size of a small nose. The fillers can also create an illusion that the angle of the nose is more symmetrical or hide a nose bump. If you like the new look, you can schedule a traditional rhinoplasty for when summer is over.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin treatment can reduce the appearance of certain facial imperfections, such as dark spots, acne, fine lines and wrinkles, and other signs of aging. There are two types of laser skin treatments – ablation and non-ablation. With the ablation technique, a laser strips the skin’s surface to remove damaged skin; while non-ablation stimulates the deeper skin layers to increase collagen production. While the ablation resurfacing gets down deeper into the skin, it takes up to three weeks for recovery. The non-ablation technique has no downtime. Your skin may be bandaged temporarily, allowing time for new skin to grow and the redness to go away.
