No Incisions, Please: All About Non Surgical Cosmetic Procedures

In today’s world of Instagram selfies and perfect Kylie Jenner pouts, there’s never been a better time to go for the sculpted look. Looking perfectly filtered—in photos and in real life—is becoming more and more popular. The number of cosmetic surgeries has been on the rise in the past 10 years.

But these days, you can get all the benefits of plastic surgery without ever going under the knife. Whether you’re looking to sculpt your face, reduce wrinkles, lighten age spots, or tone your abdomen, non-surgical cosmetic procedures are more possible than ever. With today’s cutting edge technology, you can get all the benefits without the hassle or expense of surgery. 

Still not sure what non-surgical procedures can offer you? Here are a few treatments that can get you the perfect face and body of your dreams.

1. Wrinkle Remedies

Getting older is a natural part of life. But aging comes with visible changes to your face—including wrinkles around your forehead, eyes, and mouth. 

There are ways to turn back the clock without going under the knife. Getting injections to soften wrinkles is one of the most popular non-invasive procedures out there. 

Injections of botulinum toxin, most often known as Botox, can give you a quick fix. In small doses, these injections can relax your clenched facial muscles, which softens the appearance of crow’s face and frown lines. 

This procedure is affordable, only takes a few minutes, and causes little pain. While it’s not permanent, you would only need to repeat the procedure every 3 to 6 months—and less often once you’ve been doing it regularly.

2. Lip Injections

First popularized by Kylie Jenner, lip fillers are a trend that’s on the rise. Fillers don’t just make your lips look larger and fuller, but they can also even out the shape of your lips.

All it takes is getting a dermal filler injected into your lips to plump them. These fillers should be replaced every six to nine months. 

While the type and amount of lip filler will depend from person to person, lip injections are an easy way to enhance your natural beauty and make sure you always look runway ready.

3. Laser Facial Treatments

For some minor skin imperfections, you can make your skin look brand new without ever having to alter the shape of your face. To get a fresh, glowing look, you can use laser treatments or chemical peels for your face.

These painless procedures can reduce the look of age spots, sun spots, rough skin, dull skin, and large pores. Over time, these treatments can even reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Beyond a little bit of redness and sensitivity, there’s hardly any downtime. You’ll start seeing the benefits less than 12 hours after the procedure.

4. CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is a procedure to help contour and tone your body. Instead of spending months in the gym trying to burn away fat, why not freeze it off instead? This procedure essentially freezes fat cells to remove that stubborn fat once and for all. 

Coolsculpting takes a new approach to the body sculpting industry with its non-invasive, fast process. Better yet, it promises natural results—no scars, dimples, or sagging. The benefits of coolsculpting include a long-lasting, subtle improvement to areas of fat on your body, including: 

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flank
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks
  • Under the chin
  • Under the jawline

5. Non-Surgical Nose Job

Although traditional rhinoplasty can promise significant results, it’s known for being painful and invasive. You can expect to spend a few days to a few weeks taking recovery time—while wearing a bulky nose plaster. 

But what if you could subtly alter the shape and symmetry of your nose without surgery? A non-surgical nose job uses injectable fillers like hyaluronic acid to perfect the shape of your nose. This can include smoothing out bumps, fixing a curved bridge, or creating nostril symmetry. 

This procedure can’t reduce the size of the nose, but it can provide an easier, less invasive fix for minor nose imperfections.

6. Facial Airlift

An airlift is a facial lifting technique that can tone your face and sharpen your best features—without the dramatic effects of a typical facelift. 

The airlift technique uses an injection device to deliver hyaluronic acid deep within the skin, subcutaneous fat, and layers of muscle. When it penetrates the dermal layer, the acid can trigger your body’s production of collagen. Collagen is an important part of keeping your face looking dewy and young—keeping wrinkles at bay and tightening loose skin. 

This procedure is completely needle-free—the hyaluronic acid is delivered into the skin through air pressure with little to no pain.

7. Cheek Fillers

The days of complete facial reconstruction aren’t necessarily over—but modern cosmetic procedures tend to focus more on the natural look. Cheek fillers are a perfect way to subtly contour and add volume to the face.

These injections can keep your skin tight and make your cheekbones look more structured. For those who would prefer not to go through facial surgery, cheek fillers are a great way to get that youthful, rejuvenated look.

Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures: All the Benefits Without Going Under the Knife 

In 2020 and beyond, it’s clear that cosmetic procedures aren’t going away any time soon. 

While plastic surgery remains a popular option, there’s no need to go through a complex, painful, and expensive surgery to get the results you dream of. With non-surgical cosmetic procedures, you could be just one simple step away from a brand new body, face, or complexion.
