Which one’s for you?
The aesthetic beauty industry is evolving and more consumers are showing interest to learn more about aesthetic treatments and desire to take action to delay the signs of ageing. With many aesthetic options available, the demand for cosmetic or aesthetic procedures are on the rise. So what can these procedures do for you and what can you expect from them?
Uncovering the Difference
Think simple – invasive surgery essentially entail the need to ‘open’ the skin and it usually requires a longer downtime for recovery. Patients can expect a more long-lasting or permanent effect. Some examples of invasive cosmetic surgeries may include rhinoplasty, eye bag removal.
Non-invasive or minimally invasive surgery, on the other hand, do not require surgery and the effects are usually not permanent. Some examples include botulinum toxin and dermal fillers.
Consider the Needs and Wants
Depending on your needs and wants – restoring loss facial volume or removing eye bags permanently, it varies. Some needs and wants can only be addressed with surgical options while others could be addressed with little or no downtime through non or minimally-invasive options.
Surgical treatments are usually more pricey and these procedures are able to make significant changes which are long-lasting or permanent. This draws a clear distinction with minimally and non-invasive surgeries where the results are not permanent but patients can expect subtle enhancements with natural results.
If you wish to reverse the signs of ageing subtly, you may opt for minimally invasive hyaluronic acid dermal fillers which smooths out wrinkles and hydrates the skin, while feeling natural to the touch!
Another example of a non-invasive treatment for natural improvement over time would be the US FDA-cleared microfocused ultrasound with visualization #mfuv treatment. This allows individuals to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime!
