Nonsurgical facelifts have been on the rise over the past few years. According to statistics from American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) BOTOX® Cosmetic was the number one nonsurgical procedure performed in the United States last year. With over six million injections performed in the U.S. in 2012, there were actually more appointments booked for the noninvasive rejuvenation option compared to the more than 120,000 facelifts performed in the same year. The reasons for the surge in popular techniques vary, but the fact is that they are becoming more and more in demand and sought after.
When looking ahead to your future, does the sight of deeply formed wrinkles, frown lines and creases alarm you? While many answer with a strong ‘yes’, the fear of going under the knife is enough to stave away the curious. Facelift surgery has changed dramatically over the past 20 years, with advances in medical technology giving more confidence and satisfaction to both the doctors and patients. All this being said, both men and women can still be wary to make a strong commitment for facial plastic surgery. Those who are dissatisfied with the increasing look of age and wrinkles have more options now than ever before. Instead of having to make permanent decisions, people are finding nonsurgical options to be the best choice for them. Injectables like BOTOX and Collagen Replacement can offer almost instant, relatively pain-free youthfulness. Instead of having to take vacation days off of work and lie in recovery for up to weeks at a time, patients who opt for non-surgical techniques find a solution in as little time as their lunch break. Going in for treatments like BOTOX, Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion and Collagen Replacement can feel less like a hospital procedure and more like a day at the spa, thanks to the relaxing and peaceful environments. If you have been putting off facial treatments for fear of a long-term commitment, wait no longer. Non-surgical procedures can be the perfect fit for those wanting to “dip their toes” into the pool of youth. Contact your Face & Body Specialist today to start your consultation.
