14 Popular Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatments

A huge number of cosmetic treatments out there may be overly invasive, uncomfortable, or just don't last long. Well, if you don't want to be out of commission for too long, then it is time to take a look at non-surgical cosmetic treatments. To help you get started, here are 14 of the absolute best:

1. Body Contouring

Body contouring is one of the best ways to get rid of fat pockets that just won't go away. While there are surgical body contouring techniques, there are also several options that don't require invasive surgery.

Cryolipolysis revolves around using extremely low temperatures to accurately target and get rid of fat. Although results can take a few months to show, it is a safe method that minimizes the impact on the surrounding areas. Laser lipolysis works in the opposite direction, applying heat via lasers to hone on the fatty areas and get rid of them. This can work faster but may be a bit more uncomfortable than cryolipolysis.

Radiofrequency lipolysis uses ultrasound technology to break down fat cells. Without even needing to touch you, the equipment can heat up the fat and break it down via controlled application of a radio frequency.

2. Botox

Everyone knows Botox, but not everyone knows exactly how it works. In essence, an injection of Botox forces the muscles in your face to relax, dramatically reversing the aging process and getting rid of irritating wrinkles. Injections need to be done on each problem area, but the upside is that they are extremely quick and easy. A professional can administer treatment in a matter of minutes, leaving you free to go about your day with peace of mind.

One of the main reasons why Botox is so popular is because it can be used to supplement other skin treatments and lip fillers. Adding fillers or removing fat can look good, but it can look a lot better if you have some Botox as well and loosen up those tight muscles.

3. Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift is no more than a procedure that transfers fat from unwanted places, namely from your hips, belly, and thighs to your buttocks. If you don't want to get costly or invasive implants for enhancing your buttocks and want to get rid of fat in other places at the same time, so why get two procedures when you could get the job done in just one?

It's important to note that Brazilian butt lifts don't help treat extra skin. Additionally, Brazilian butt lifts do require that you sit in a special way for a while after the procedure, so if that's a problem, then a Brazilian butt lift may not be the best option for you.

4. Cheek Fillers

Cheek fillers allow you to inject fullness directly into your cheeks. Some cheek fillers use the fat from your own body to maximize efficiency. For some, the idea that there isn't anything foreign being added to your body, just a bit of fat being shifted around, is an extremely compelling reason to transfer fat via cheek fillers.

5. Chemical Peels

One of the simplest options, chemical peels simply apply a chemical solution to your skin. This solution wears down and removes the most damaged outer layers which often look least pleasing. By revealing the brilliant, untouched skin beneath, you can instantly undo years of wear and tear. From the sun damage to acne to wrinkles, the years can add a lot of strain to your face. Thankfully, reversing that process is as quick and easy as getting a chemical peel.

6. Chin Fullness Reduction

This is one of the best options for contouring your jawline without the need for invasive surgery. Rather than injecting a substance to add volume, this process injects a special substance that actually absorbs fat and breaks it down, thereby reducing the volume in problem areas. Hence it is less invasive than liposuction and work faster in some cases.

7. Clear and Brilliant Laser Facial Treatment

It's no surprise that the Clear and Brilliant Laser Facial Treatment are one of the fastest rising stars of the non-surgical cosmetic treatment world. There's no cutting, no injections, and no putting you under, meaning that it's a lot less invasive than many other options. It only takes a few minutes to complete a session and give full results, plus the recovery period afterward isn't much to worry about at all.

In a session, you will have the option of getting numbed. After that, a laser will work on your face for a while. Once it's all done, you'll have a simple serum applied to your face, then you'll be given some simple instructions for how to protect your face over the next few days. Once that short healing period is up, the skin on your face will be fresher than anything you've ever experienced and it can last many months or even a year.

8. Lip Injections

There are a number of different ways to get plumper, fuller lips, but non-surgical lip injections are one of the easiest and fastest. One of the most popular injections is hyaluronic acid, which is actually a very common natural substance in your body. By simply adding some more to your body via a tiny injection, you can make your lips plumper and fuller than ever before.

Historically, collagen was also used, but it has fallen out of favor for being less safe and not lasting quite as long. Therefore, when you read or hear complaints about lip injections, make sure the other person isn't talking about the old wild west days of plastic surgery. Safety, comfort, and cost efficiency have come a long way since then.

9. Lipotropic Injections

As opposed to the above options, lipotropic injections aren't about adding volume or moving fat from place to place. Instead, lipotropic injections trigger a number of reactions in your body, encouraging the breakdown of fat and speeding up your metabolism. Put simply, lipotropic injections make you lose fat with any need for surgery or an excessively strict diet. Nevertheless, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle in general.

10. Liquid Facelift

A liquid facelift combines the application of dermal fillers and Botox to adjust several aspects of your face at the same time. Tightness and wrinkles are reversed while any flat areas are filled out and volume is readjusted to provide a more even appearance. Ultimately, your entire face will be adjusted for the better and the effects will last a long longer than you might expect.

However, you do need to make sure that you are getting legal products through a licensed physician. Dangerous substances and improper application can leave your face severely damaged or even paralyzed, so don't risk it. 

11. Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is the ambitious child of acupuncture and cosmetic surgery. The basic idea is to deliver many small injections into the middle of your skin to reverse certain kinds of damage and handle common cosmetic problems, including excess fat, cellulite, wrinkles, and loose skin. On top of that, they can even lighten your skin pigmentation, limit certain kinds of hair loss, and recontour your body.

12. Non-Surgical Nose Job

Nose jobs are often seen as uncomfortable and invasive procedures, but modern technology now allows for a much more pleasant alternative: the non-surgical nose job. With a non-surgical nose job, fillers are injected into your nose to smooth out uneven areas. However, it is not a permanent solution and you will need to get the procedure repeated down the road in order to keep the results from fading.

13. Oxygen Facials

An oxygen facial is a pretty simple process where a machine sprays concentrated oxygen directly onto your skin. Some of this oxygen is mixed with a variety of beneficial vitamins and minerals, with the goal being to apply all that helpful stuff directly to your skin. When that happens, your collagen production will go way up, leading to more elastic and stronger skin. On top of that, it detoxifies, helps recycle cells faster, and moisturizes your skin.

Unlike many cosmetic options, there are no real side effects of using oxygen facials. There's almost no chance of getting irritated, red skin or any sort of stinging or burning. Once you do get an oxygen facial, you will begin to notice the results immediately and there won't be any irritating regression in your skin quality when the treatment does eventually wear off.

14. Thermage

Thermage treatments doesn't rely on surgery or injections, but rather apply radiofrequency therapy to your skin. It targets specific areas and smooths, tightens, and contours skin all at once. Not only that but the results last a lot longer than the alternatives, with many reporting that their skin was improved for multiple years.

While other treatments tend to require a number of treatments and appointments over a fairly long period of time, Thermage only needs a single session that will last an hour or two. Once you get the treatment, you can immediately return to daily life and do everything that you did before.

When picking out the right non-surgical cosmetic treatment, carefully consider exactly what you want to get done. Botox may be one of the most recognizable options listed here, but is it the best choice if you want to get rid of belly fat?

No, in that case, you might be better off with a Brazilian butt lift, which can not only get rid of that fat but also build up those places where you do want a little something extra.
