Non-Surgical Options for a More Youthful You
Cosmetic surgery without the surgery sounds too good to be true. In truth, there are a growing number of procedures that can give a more youthful appearance without the need for surgery. It can be challenging to know if any of these procedures will provide the desired effect, as, sometimes, surgery is the best way to go for more permanent results.
We’ll give an overview of non-surgical procedures and the results you can get from some of the most popular ones.
Benefits to Non-Surgical Cosmetic Options
You can achieve cosmetic procedure results with a simple injection – no need for surgery. As you can imagine, this allows for significant time-saving. The procedure can take as long as 15 minutes to an hour lunch break, and there is minimal downtime once the procedure is completed.
Non-surgical cosmetic options also allow you to get procedures in a preventative manner, such as using Botox to relax muscles and avoiding dreaded frown lines or “worry lines” from ever appearing. Such procedures are often cheaper, though the costs can add up with repeat visits.
There are plenty of applications for non-surgical procedures like this. We’ll outline some of the types that are most popular in Toronto at the moment.
A common misconception is that Botox can help minimize puffiness or dark circles under the eyes. Generally, Botox is a more appropriate treatment for wrinkles or small frown lines.
However, injections of dermal fillers such as Restylane or Dysport can be great options instead of Botox for puffy under eyes. These dermal fillers give your skin a more youthful appearance by adding smoother volume to your face.
Non-Surgical Eye Lifts or Eyebrow Lift
An increasingly popular procedure in Toronto is “blepharoplasty,” better known as eye lifts. These procedures remove droopy eyelids and crows feet to give a more youthful appearance to the eyes.
Traditionally, eye lifts are surgical, involving the removal of excess skin. However, a temporary non-surgical eye lift is possible through dermal fillers below the eyelid. A non-surgical eyebrow lift can also make an eye appear more youthful by filling in loose skin.
Non-Surgical Nose Lift or “Liquid Rhinoplasty”
A rhinoplasty or nose surgery without surgery? Despite being associated with surgeries, it is possible to get a non-surgical nose lift.
These non-surgical nose jobs work much the same way as other dermal fillers. The hyaluronic acid filler is injected into the nose to help redefine the nose’s shape where needed. A “liquid rhinoplasty” can smooth out bumps, give increased volume or even touch up a previous “botched” rhinoplasty without undergoing a revision rhinoplasty surgery.
If you wondered how long do nose fillers last, the effects of a nonsurgical rhinoplasty could last up to a year or longer. Better yet, once the effects wear off, you can touch up the fillers at your earliest convenience. Of course, repeated injections may eventually add up to the cost of an actual surgical rhinoplasty, so be sure to determine the best return on investment.
Also, if you’re wondering what makes you a good candidate for a liquid rhinoplasty, keep in mind that a crooked nose or bulbous nose may require surgery. Non-surgical rhinoplasty or an injection rhinoplasty can add volume to the nose but not always correct a more considerable asymmetry.
