There’s been a lot of talk lately about the popularity of non-surgical cosmetic procedures and how more and more people are opting for them as they are often more affordable and have quicker recovery times than surgical procedures. But that doesn’t mean that cosmetic surgery, which has more permanence than a non-surgical cosmetic procedure, is a thing of the past. The important thing to remember is which procedure is best for what you want to do.
When it comes to facials, many people view them as a luxury. And no doubt, they certainly can feel luxurious. But when you consider all of the health benefits they provide, perhaps you might start to think of them as a necessity. Facials and other skin-care treatments can be a way to reduce the signs of aging.
The eyes have it, when it comes to the first signs of aging. The delicate skin surrounding our eyes develops wrinkles that we may be able to shrug off as “laugh lines,” but the skin can also sag, causing droopy eyes or bags under the eyes that belie or call more attention to our age than we would like.
While it’s still far more common for women to seek cosmetic procedures, there’s been a nearly 20 percent increase since 2010 in men requesting such procedures, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Botox injections are the most popularly requested procedures, the ASPS reports.
Sometimes, we want to improve ourselves, but we don’t necessarily want to go under the knife. Thankfully, there are many procedures that can improve our appearances, whether you’re looking to tighten the skin on your face, abdomen or legs; soften the lines on your face or body; or reduce scarring. Since these procedures use non-invasive techniques, there’s less downtime so you can show off your great new looks almost immediately!
Sometimes, despite the right diet and rigorous exercise, there are pockets of fat that never seem to go away. Your gender plays a large role in exactly where fat collects in your body. The problem area for men is the stomach, while women tend to store fat in their thighs and backside. Though diet and exercise are important, sometimes body fat is just plain persistent, refusing to leave these areas.
We’ve all heard of Botox at one time or another. The results are fantastic when you want to reduce wrinkles or lines appearing around your eyes, your forehead or around your mouth. These are the most common areas treated. And did you know that Botox can help in other health-related areas such as excessive sweating, bladder incontinence, migraines and muscular disorders?
Today, there are so many ways to achieve a younger look. And let’s admit it, sometimes all of the available options can be confusing. When it’s your face, ask Tucson’s trusted and respected Cosmetic Surgeon, Mikel Lo, M.D. His years of experience can give you the confidence to make informed decisions that are right for you.
Wonderfully restorative, patients love the wide-eyed and beautiful results that Blepharoplasty offers. Commonly known as eyelid surgery, Blepharoplasty is becoming a popular procedure at About Faces. Patients turn to blepharoplasty as a way to rejuvenate their aging appearance.
We each hold and carry fat differently. For many, excess fat manifests itself as a double chin. At About Faces, we are excited to announce that we now offer Kybella, a non-invasive, injectable treatment that targets and destroys fat that is stored under the chin and in the neck area. Approved this past April, Kybellas release has been highly anticipatedâboth by cosmetic surgeons and patients alike. With little downtime, non-invasive Kybella promises to give you the slim and sculpted chin and jawline you desire.
