Cosmetic beauty procedures are a little different from surgical procedures, as they are designed to enhance your look rather than make a change. Around 18 million people had a cosmetic or minimally invasive procedure in 2018, and this figure is still on the rise. Whether you are trying to get a whiter smile to eliminate smokers’ stains or you want to get rid of your frown lines, here are some of the ways cosmetic procedures can give you a more natural look.
Everything that you eat, drink or expose your teeth to is absorbed, which is why you see stains after smoking or drinking excessive amounts of coffee. Although this may be their natural state, many prefer their teeth to look more appealing, and choose whitening treatments. Treatment can take days or months, depending on how severe the staining is, and should be carried out by a qualified dentist or practitioner. Choose a color close to the ‘before’ color of your teeth to achieve a more natural look.
The use of Botox as a non-invasive cosmetic procedure has increased by 40.6% and is still on the rise. Its popularity is likely due to the minimally invasive technique and its enhancement properties, which achieve a more natural look. The chemical used is injected into the skin using a fine needle, and prevents muscle contractions. This causes wrinkles and facial lines to soften. Botox injections can be used on the forehead, and the lines around the mouth and eyes, among other areas. It is even used medically to reduce sweating and prevent migraines.
Body sculpting has become increasingly popular over the last few years, and acts to reduce body fat and give the body a slimmer appearance. Some techniques are surgical, but there are treatments which are non-invasive, such as fat freezing or laser lipolysis. While surgical procedures like liposuction involve a long period of recovery, these treatments do not, making them more convenient. Their popularity has risen by 43% since 2017, likely due to the long-lasting results and few side effects. Always have a consultation first, as some procedures only remove certain types of fat.
Cosmetic beauty treatments are usually carried out for aesthetic purposes, but they also have some medical benefits. They are extremely safe and are not as invasive as surgical procedures. Always consult your doctor or a cosmetic specialist before undergoing any procedures.
