The deliciously cool days of fall are nearly here and it is the perfect time to treat yourself to a post-summer pick-me-up. Here are some of our favorite, amazing non-invasive treatment options that will lift your spirit as well as have you looking and feeling your best before the holiday season:
A non-surgical nose job, also known as a “liquid nose job,” is an effective way to enhance the shape of the nose or to straighten the nasal bridge without surgery. Dermal fillers like Radiesse, Restylane and Juvederm are used to provide incredible results that give the nose a more proportional look. If you’re not pleased with the top or sides of the nose, this non-invasive option is ideal. Although it is not used to reduce the size of your nose, a liquid nose job is a perfect solution for reducing dents or depression, augmenting or raising a flat bridge, or reducing the appearance of a hump on the bridge. The process of receiving the injectables takes about 30 minutes and will not clog or change the nasal cavity. Since there is no surgical aspect to the treatment, there isn’t typically pain and there is no recovery period.
Have you always wanted a tight, swan-like neck? A non-surgical neck lift is possible using a combination of Ultherapy and Botox. Say goodbye to sagging skin. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to tighten the skin around the face, neck and décolletage. Ultrasound technology has been used in medicine safely for years, with a proven track record. Botox smoothes the wrinkles that can occur because of muscle contractions in the neck. By using both treatments, the result is smooth, tight skin in the neck area. Each treatment has been used for decades, so you can feel secure and trust the process.
If you crave pillow lips that look and feel natural, Juvederm Volbella lip filler is an excellent option. This hyaluronic acid-based gel, which is enhanced with painkilling Lidocaine, is injected into specific points on the lips. Vycross technology is used in this filler to efficiently crosslink and produce greater lift and longer-lasting results. Treatments take only 15 to 30 minutes, there is no pain, and you’ll enjoy results for up to 12 months.
Don’t let your hands age you. Hand rejuvenation helps treat the issues that occur on the delicate skin of your hands. If you’re unhappy with the look of bony hands, fillers are used to create additional volume. If dark spots on your hands are bothering you, an innovative Nordlys laser system utilizes pulses of light targeted into the superficial layer of the skin. The light is absorbed by the melanin in the pigmented lesion, which is converted into heat, eliminating the cells where the melanin is stored.
Body contouring using Dual CoolSculpting is ideal, as it treats two areas at one time. If you are frustrated by stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to exercise and diet, CoolSculpting can reduce the fat up to 23% in areas like your chin, thighs, flanks, tummy or even upper arms. As the world’s first and most versatile non-invasive fat reduction treatment, CoolSculpting crystallizes fat cells beneath the skin’s surface and the dead cells are naturally removed by the body’s lymphatic system. CoolSculpting is non-invasive and doesn’t require recovery time.
