Top 5 Non-Surgical Options That Would Be Best for You!

When considering cosmetic treatments to enhance your appearance, the idea of having surgery is often the first thought to cross your mind. But perhaps you need to broaden your horizons! 

Even though surgical procedures are effective and safe, they are not the only avenue to achieve your dream look. Indeed, non-surgical cosmetic treatments in Long Beach, California, can quickly help you attain a rejuvenated look. If you are looking to benefit from minimally invasive procedures, these non-surgical approaches are the way to go.

Depending upon your concern, you can choose from a range of non-surgical treatments. To help you make an informed decision, here are the top five options that might be the best fit for you.

1. Plasma Pen

Harnessing the power of plasma energy, the Plasma Pen offers a targeted treatment that boosts your skin’s natural healing processes. With this specialized device, your physician safely breaks away damaged layers of skin while also delivering fibroblast therapy deep within. 

This treatment triggers your skin to produce collagen and new skin cells. As a result, you can say goodbye to concerns such as wrinkles, creases, scarring, and sagging skin. Due to the use of fibroblast therapy, the Plasma Pen delivers highly effective results. 

  • Average time per session: 45 minutes
  • Recommended treatments: Two to three sessions
  • Efficacy: Results may last up to three years. 

2. Neuromodulators

In the realm of non-surgical cosmetic treatments, neuromodulators such as Botox®, Jeuveau, and Dysport often stand front and center. As some of the most effective injectable treatments, they are highly popular for reducing wrinkles and facial lines. 

When injected into your skin, these products block the nerve signals that trigger muscle movements such as frowning and squinting, thus reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. In turn, you can steer clear of concerns such as frown lines, laugh lines, and crow’s feet over time, enjoying a more youthful appearance with long-lasting results.

  • Average time per session: 15 minutes 
  • Recommended treatments: Every three to four months
  • Efficacy: Results last three to four months

3. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers use natural substances such as hyaluronic acid to rejuvenate your appearance. They can reduce wrinkles, refresh your skin, and sculpt your face according to your needs. 

During dermal filler treatments, your provider injects these substances within your skin. Once settled, the fillers work against skin aging issues and provide you with a more youthful appearance. You can also use these non-surgical cosmetic treatments to enhance specific facial areas. For example, many of our patients request lip plumping and cheek contouring. 

  • Average time per session: 15 minutes 
  • Recommended treatments: Smoothing wrinkles and adding volume
  • Efficacy: Results vary from anywhere between six months to two years

4. CoolSculpting

If you have pockets of fat on your body that do not respond to diet and exercise, CoolSculpting can help you address the issue. This non-surgical approach targets fat using modern fat-freezing technology, which can deliver results without invasive surgery or recovery time. 

Through this treatment, you can reduce fat pockets using controlled cooling therapy. CoolSculpting kills fat cells, which your body will safely flush out. As a result, you can get your ideal figure with fewer risks and no scarring or stitches.

  • Average time per session: 35+ minutes
  • Recommended treatments: Depending upon results
  • Efficacy: Results may offer up to 20% reduction in fat pockets after each treatment

5. HydraFacial

Putting together the effects of targeted exfoliation, powerful extractions, and deep moisturization, HydraFacial allows you to strip away impurities and aging concerns. In return, it delivers healthy skin that glows from within. 

The HydraFacial regime uses a specialized Vortex-Fusion system that induces different dermabrasion and extraction techniques. In addition to clearing blemishes and spots, the treatment’s invigoration effects also work on removing fine lines and wrinkles. At the same time, you can enjoy resolution of other skin issues such as uneven skin tone, oily skin, and enlarged and clogged pores. 

  • Average time per session: 20-30 minutes
  • Recommended treatments: Depending upon result
  • Efficacy: Results might be immediately noticeable, but their duration lasts depending on various factors such as current skincare regimen and lifestyle.
