Summary: If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and didn’t quite recognize the person staring back at you, it might be time to treat yourself to a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure to help you look and feel younger. The good news is that you have plenty of options when it comes to affordable, minimally invasive treatments.
Take a look at these five popular cosmetic procedures that can have you looking and feeling like a younger, slimmer version of yourself by fall.
Most women and men can relate to the constant battle with stubborn belly fat, love handles and back rolls that just won’t go away, despite spending hours in the gym. The unfortunate truth is that some pockets of fat can be challenging, if not impossible, to get rid of with diet and exercise alone.
If this is the case for you, CoolSculpting® could be the answer you’re looking for. CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical body contouring tool that uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze and disable targeted fat cells, which will then dissolve and be eliminated by your body. The result is a slimmer, smoother body shape that will look and feel great in your favorite pair of jeans.
2. Injectable Fillers
If lines, wrinkles and loss of facial volume has you looking much older than you feel, injectable fillers could be the right cosmetic procedure for you. Most fillers contain a substance called hyaluronic acid, which is already naturally present in your skin. It has the ability to bind to and retain up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture, leaving you with a smoother, fuller and more youthful-looking complexion.
Other fillers, like Bellafill®, use polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) collagen to fill in deep creases and wrinkles. Many women and men who opt for Bellafill® injections enjoy results that can last up to five years.
3. BOTOX® & Dysport®
BOTOX® and Dysport® are types of injectable wrinkle treatments known as neuromodulators. They work by temporarily relaxing the facial muscle contractions that cause dynamic lines and wrinkles in your forehead area and around your eyes.
Injectables like BOTOX® and Dysport® are considered ‘lunchtime procedures’ because they can typically be performed in about 20 minutes and don’t require downtime.
People are often surprised to learn that genetics can be to blame for the pesky pockets of fat that create a double chin. Because of this, a double chin can be impossible to get rid of, no matter how much you exercise. Thankfully, Kybella™ can help.
Kybella™ is an injectable double chin treatment that contains deoxycholic acid to break down unwanted fat, resulting in a better-defined jawline and a slimmer facial profile. Most people see the best results after 2 to 6 treatment sessions with Kybella™.
Women and men of any age can struggle with finding the right skin care treatments to help improve the appearance of concerns like acne scars, lines and wrinkles and even a dull, lackluster complexion. If this is the case for you, microneedling with SkinPen® can help to give you the brighter, younger-looking skin you want without requiring an extensive procedure.
SkinPen® treatments typically take about 30 minutes to complete. It works by creating tiny micro-injuries to which your skin responds by accelerating its natural repair process and increasing its production of collagen for an all-around rejuvenated look and feel.
