It’s no secret that we all want to look and feel our best.
There is a cosmetic procedure to improve any bothersome imperfection that threatens our peace of mind or confidence.
While certain makeover requests related to anti-aging and weight-loss treatments always seem to remain at the top of the list for obvious reasons, trends do change on occasion as new technology and scientific discoveries increase our options.
Below are a few of the most sought-after beauty treatments that are currently enjoying a surge in popularity.
Dieting and physical activity can often fall short in delivering the perfect body that we all desire. Even if you stop eating carbs completely, it can be impossible to lose weight that settles on certain spots of our body due to genetics and other factors beyond our control.
It’s no secret that CoolSculpting has arrived as a solution for dealing with those unwanted pounds that resist our best dieting and exercise efforts. Onya Magazine defines CoolSculpting as a non-surgical method that utilizes cryolipolysis to destroy fat cells. This technology basically targets and freezes the fat you want to eliminate.
This non-invasive procedure only takes about an hour. Unlike more drastic medical treatments like liposuction, CoolSculpting is a relatively low-stress experience with only marginal discomfort from the initial exposure of your skin to the cold temperature required to freeze the fat.
Patients are encouraged to read, sleep or work on their laptop during the short procedure.
This popular outpatient treatment requires no downtime which means you can return to your regular routines as soon as you walk out of the door. Some people experience some bruising or redness, but these side effects disappear quickly.
Each treatment can remove about 20% of the fat from that area. Patients find they may need two or three sessions to achieve the results they desire.
2. Dermal Filler Treatments
Dermal filler treatments address aging issues such as wrinkles and sagging skin by injecting hyaluronic acid into the skin to add volume to target areas to erase the signs of aging. This non-surgical procedure is understandably popular and is performed by top clinics for instant results.
The way it works is that the filler pulls water to the injection site which plumps up the skin for a more youthful appearance.
Many people view dermal fillers as a way to contour their face, to achieve the look they desire. There is no reason to settle for a weak chin or large nose anymore. Viw reports that dermal fillers can be used to contour the jawline, lips, cheeks, forehead, chin, and eyebrows.
The results last from six to twenty-four months, depending on the area of the face treated. Patients love the fact that downtime is minimal, especially when compared to a facelift. Minor bruising or redness can last for about a week.
3. Brazilian Butt Lift
It’s no secret that a shapely and perky butt makes our clothes look better and improves our overall confidence. There are many reasons why our bottom isn’t as full and shapely as it once was. Whether you’ve lost weight or your genetics favor flatter buttocks, there is no reason to settle for anything less than what you want.
Through a technique known as fat grafting, your fat can be removed from another part of your body and re-injected into your buttocks. It is always very important to hire an experienced surgeon for this type of procedure.
It is worth mentioning that a Brazilian butt lift is a much safer alternative than silicone implants. By adding fat to your buttocks, dips can be corrected and you can enjoy the hourglass figure you’ve always imagined. Fortunately, the results last as long as several years, and in some cases, for decades.
4. Skin Needling
The science behind skin needling is based on increasing collagen growth which improves your skin texture for a younger appearance. Beauty Crew describes skin needling as the creation of small skin injuries that trigger the body to heal. Essentially, when your skin goes into healing mode, collagen levels are increased.
Another use for skin needling is to improve scars. Many women use it to improve scarring from acne or accidents.
We are all only a beauty treatment away from living a better life, confident in our own skin. Whether you want to erase a few years from your face or lose a few stubborn pounds, it is nice to know we have safe options available when we are ready to take the next step.Lastly, I'm starting to tell other women about a health newsletter that I've benefited immensely from and that I highly recommend.
