Spring is here and that means the prospect of warmer weather. Many are thinking about vacations, going to the beach, lounging by the pool, and all the other activities we enjoy in the summer. And, because others see a lot more of us … literally … as the weather warms, it’s a good time to consider getting cosmetic surgery or minimally invasive procedures so you look your very best.
Considering non-surgical treatment?
Web MD reports that the latest cosmetic enhancement trends include non-surgical Botox®, Dysport®, Jeuveau® and RF technology, which are all gaining in popularity due to their convenience and lower cost. Additionally, an article in Dermatology Times predicts an increase in “prejuvenation,” using non- and minimally-invasive procedures to keep skin healthy before aging even begins to show. Men and women in their 20s and 30s are getting regular cosmetic procedures preventatively, rather than later in life to repair older, damaged, and sagging skin.
Non-surgical procedures are popular because you can get immediate results with some minor swelling and occasional bruising lasting a few days. Examples are Botox and Dysport, which smooth wrinkles, to dermal fillers, which refresh the face and lip lines, to laser treatments and facials. It’s the right time of year to give some quality time to procedures that have little-to-no down time. Microneedling is another minimally invasive procedure that generates new collagen and skin tissue to create smoother, firmer and more-toned skin. It’s commonly used on the face for scars, wrinkles and large pores.
And as the sweaters and jackets come off, it’s a good time to consider some body contouring procedures, like the Accufit, for the abdomen and arms as well. While some of us added pounds over the winter, spring is the perfect opportunity to debut a trimmer you!
Face the facts
Spending more time in the sun, along with Arizona’s dry air, can irritate sensitive skin and cause more fine lines and wrinkles to appear on your face. Spring is the perfect time to seek hydrafacial treatments to keep the skin hydrated, plump and youthful looking as summer approaches.
About Faces Cosmetic Surgery is one of the only practices in Arizona that offers the latest non-surgical procedures like LaseMD and NeoGen nitrogen plasma technology, which are among the revolutionary procedures for tightening skin offered by About Faces.
