I am getting older, and I am starting to notice signs of aging. Do I need to use traditional plastic surgery methods like a facelift, or can I eliminate these signs of aging in another way instead? Cosmetic procedures and a number of newer products on the market may be able to help you look fresher without the invasive techniques or risks that are involved with plastic surgery procedures. According to Sydney Plastic Surgeon Dr. Steve Merten there are a number of ways that you can improve your appearance without “going under the knife”, and without an extended time for a full and complete recovery.
What are non-surgical cosmetic procedures?
Non-surgical cosmetic procedures generally refer to treatments that are provided in the practice, rather than those that are performed in a hospital or operating room. These procedures are minimally invasive, and there is little or no recovery time needed. Most of these products and cosmetic procedures allow you to leave the office and go about your day as normal, but others may involve a little swelling, redness, or skin sensitivity for a day or so after treatment.
Dermal Fillers can give you a fresher appearance
Dermal fillers are cosmetic procedures that involve injecting a dermal filler product under the skin that is showing signs of aging, most often the face. These products go under various brand names and enhance the volume under the skin where the tissues have become thin or that are exhibiting wrinkles, lines, or other signs of aging. The cost for these options start from around $500, with prices varying depending on your required result.
What are muscle relaxant injections and how do they work?
Muscle relaxant injection is one of the most common cosmetic procedures for men and women both, and involves one or more injections into the muscles that are showing signs of age. This type of cosmetic procedure paralyses the muscles that are causing frown lines, smile lines and wrinkles, giving skin that is smoother and fresher. If you decide to have these treatments make sure you choose the doctor very carefully, and that this professional has experience and training in this cosmetic procedure.
