Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are big news nowadays. The industry specialism is booming; it’s grown phenomenally over the last decade. It’s no surprise that people want to look good – and with non-surgical cosmetic treatments more accessible and affordable, they’ve become the norm not only for celebrities, but for the population in general.
But which of these procedures are the most popular?
1. Botulinum Toxin Injections
Top of the list is the botulinum toxin injection – most often used to relax wrinkles in order to prevent them from deepening. The procedure is extremely effective, so much so that it can be used to carry out what’s known as a non-surgical eye lift – a treatment that gives the eyes the appearance of being lifted without surgical intervention.
2. Dermal Fillers
Next up is dermal fillers, which, contrary to popular belief, aren’t just effective for lip-plumping. These injectables have a wide range of uses, and are a big part of both non-surgical facelifts and non-surgical nose jobs. The fillers are injected in precise locations under the skin of the nose to change its contours – effectively reshaping it.
3. Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal rates highly on the list of most popular procedures – and it’s actually men who’re queuing up for it. The rise of the metrosexual have made a little manscaping perfectly acceptable – male grooming has gone mainstream and the long-lasting effects of laser hair removal make it easy to address problem areas like hairy backs and shoulders.
4. Microdermabrasion / Chemical Peels
Further down the list are rejuvenating procedures such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels. These procedures promise to reveal younger-looking, healthier skin by removing either the dull skin cells that have a dulling effect on the complexion or the damaged top layer of skin completely.
5. Non-surgical liposuction
Exactly what you’d expect; non-surgical liposuction is a procedure that aims to reduce fat through non-invasive technological methods, either by melting and liquefying, or freezing and destroying fat cells.
