In 2012, Americans spent roughly 11 billion dollars on plastic surgery, with around 4.2 billion dollars spent on non-surgical cosmetic procedures. The top 5 non-surgical procedures last year were Botox, hyaluronic acid derivatives, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. While these procedures don’t involve surgery, this doesn’t mean that you should not be vigilant either. Here at Utah Facial Plastics, our Salt Lake non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures are safe, accessible and affordable.
Advantages of Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
So you’re not sure about having a facelift or a chin augmentation yet? You will be delighted to know that you can still achieve amazing results with non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures at our clinic. These procedures offer the following advantages:
Lesser discomfort and pain in comparison to surgical procedures
No long recovery periods
Natural-looking results due to very subtle changes. Keep in mind though that the results of minimally invasive procedures could last between 6 months to 3 years. It is best to discuss this with your plastic surgeon.
Several clients would often choose to combine surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures for optimal results.
Choosing Between Botox and Dermal Fillers
When it comes to non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures, you will be presented with two major alternatives — Botox and dermal fillers. So which of the two shall you choose?
Botox and its derivatives such as Dysport and Xeomin are useful in reducing the appearance of wrinkles that have only recently appeared and formed. They are often referred to as “active lines”. On the other hand, dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can significantly reduce the appearance of “firmly established wrinkles”. Specifically, they are used to soften facial creases, plump your lips and enhance shallow contours. Every so often, dermal fillers are recommended in conjunction with Botox.
