What a Cosmetic Specialist Can Do For You

If you have ever considered a cosmetic procedure as a way to improve your self-esteem and your appearance, you are in good company. In fact, according to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), cosmetic procedures, including both surgical and minimally invasive, are on the rise. In 2014, 15.6 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States. The main reason behind this rise is a continued advancement in medical technology surrounding cosmetic procedures, meaning patients are given more choices when it comes to achieving their desired results, according to ASPS President Scot Glasberg, MD.

Why Cosmetic Services Could be For You:

There are numerous reasons why cosmetic procedures from a cosmetic specialist could improve your life. If you have always disliked a particular feature or want to restore the beauty of your youth, there are procedures that can fulfill that desire. Either way, you will likely experience a self-esteem boost simply by improving your appearance and doing something positive for yourself. Studies have revealed that there is a correlation between having cosmetic procedures and positive self-esteem. However, as the study notes, it is important to temper expectations in regard to what a cosmetic procedure can do. It can enhance what is there and minimize the negative elements, but it won’t create an entirely different appearance. You will still look like you, just more youthful and radiant.

Cosmetic Services Offered by a Cosmetic Specialist:

There are many possible options to consider when it comes to cosmetic enhancement. The following are just a few of the least invasive and most advantageous procedures currently available:

  • BOTOX: Botox is a popular procedure used to relax the muscles of the face, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive procedure and is virtually painless. If you have a problem with needles, you will be happy to know that the needle used for Botox injections are significantly smaller than those used in other procedures.
  • Juvederm: This procedure is classified as a dermal filler, which makes it effective when treating deep furrows and wrinkles. This treatment lasts up to a year. The procedure itself does cause mild discomfort, much like it would be felt when receiving an injection. Juvederm is administered in target areas, thus restoring plumpness in the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
  • Belotero: This highly effective cosmetic procedure is the most advanced form of dermal filler on the market today. It successfully reduces wrinkles and lines while enhancing the face’s natural contours.
  • Radiesse: Radiesse is an FDA-approved synthetic injectable filler that has been shown to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, creases around the mouth and nose, and skin folds. This effective and safe treatment increases the skin’s natural collagen supply. This is an alternative to other dermal filler treatments.
