Non-invasive facial treatments are becoming increasingly popular due to their numerous advantages over surgical options. These types of treatments can help achieve a rejuvenated, more sculpted appearance without the need for anesthesia, lengthy recovery times, or invasive procedures.
Let’s explore some of the most common benefits of non-invasive facial treatments and why they may be a better option than traditional surgery.
- No downtime. One major advantage to non-invasive facial treatments is that there is usually no downtime involved. This means that you can return to your normal activities almost immediately after receiving treatment, with little chance of any discomfort or pain lasting more than a few days at most. This makes these types of treatments ideal for those who don’t want to take time off from work or other commitments in order to recover from a procedure.
2. Reversible. One of the key benefits of non-invasive facial treatments is that they are generally reversible such as in the case of non-surgical nose jobs. This means that the patient can (1) “try” out a look and then commit to the surgical modification such as rhinoplasty (2) can reverse the treatment such as in the case of hyaluronic acid fillers or (3) choose not to do the treatment again such as in the case of neuromodulators the effects of which dissipate over a short period of time. Patients find this option reassuring, knowing that there is an ‘out’ should they later realize it wasn’t right for them after all.
3. Lower expense. Another benefit associated with non-invasive facial treatments is that they are generally less expensive. However, if a patient can best achieve the desired results with surgery as determined by a board–certified facial plastic surgeon, it’s likely that the surgery will be less expensive than the number of non-invasive treatments that patient may require to achieve the same result – if at all possible.
4. Faster results. As non-invasive treatments don’t take as much of a toll on your body’s recovery processes, any swelling from such treatments is reduced much quicker and the results can typically be seen faster. While this is not the case for all non-invasive treatments and differs with each individual patient, some treatments can produce visible results right away such as cosmetic fillers or Evoke.
While both surgical and non-surgical techniques come with risks, most people find that the risks involved in minimally invasive procedures tend to be considerably lower. Nonetheless, you should always evaluate the type of non-invasive treatment you are receiving and the qualifications of the individual performing them.
