Let’s be honest — you’ve probably tried one of those trendy face masks or cleanse diets in an effort to look a little younger than you are. (Don’t worry — we’ve done it too.) It seems the only action people are actually wary about is facial surgery. And between the price and the pain, we don’t really blame them. But you don’t need to go under the knife to get the youthful look you desire. There are alternatives to facial surgery that work just as well!
Alternatives to Facial Surgery
This procedure uses different colored lights to treat acne, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and acne scarring. While it’s on the cheaper side, you may have to have two dozen treatments before seeing significant results.
This is a radio-frequency cosmetic procedure that involves stimulating new collagen production and tightening existing collagen in order to smooth skin. It can help with fine lines and wrinkles as well as lift your brows and cheeks, but it will cost you a pretty penny at an average $2,500 per treatment.
This non-surgical procedure fights the aging process by using ultrasound to heat tissue under the skin’s surface and triggering the natural production of collagen. The downside is the cost — one treatment usually runs about $3,000-$5,000, and most people need three treatments.
This is one of the most common alternatives to facial surgery. Botox injections temporarily paralyze the muscles in your face, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in very little time.
If you’re looking for immediate results, fillers are the way to go. These treatments fill the lines and creases in your skin and can also be used as volumizers to plump up your cheeks, lips, and temples. Hyaluronic acid fillers even stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, helping to give you an even better youthful look.
