Cosmetic Surgery without the Surgery

cosmetic-3Cosmetic surgery is big business to say the least these days, though each passing year brings a fresh flurry of new and innovative procedures that don’t actually involve any invasive surgery at all. One of the most common examples of all is of course the Botox injection, which has proved to be one of the most popular advancements to have come along in the history of the cosmetic surgery industry.

In any and all cases however, it’s impossible to rule out certain risks unless the most reputable and capable practitioner is chosen to carry out the process. Even with no surgery involved, cosmetic procedures can still be a pretty risky business unless carried out by the industry’s elite.

So, as far as advancements in the industry have come so far, what kinds of treatments are available that don’t require any specific surgery at all?

There are plenty of treatments that can be carried out without the need for surgery, though in most instances the available treatments focus on the appearance of the skin and hair.

Common examples include:

  • Botox and other muscle paralysers that work by relaxing the muscles in such a way that the appearance of fine lines and even deep wrinkles can be reduced greatly. Botox is applied by use of injections.
  • Dermal fillers are also applied by way of injection, though in this case are injected directly into the wrinkles themselves in order to physically fill them in and reduce their appearance.
  • Chemical peels are hugely popular cosmetic treatments and involve the use of a special mixture of chemicals which take away the top layer of skin cells.
  • Laser hair removal can now be carried out on almost any area of the body, removing unwanted hair and ensuring it never grows back.
  • Microdermabrasion is a common method for the removal of dead skin cells by use of a vacuum and fine crystals.

It’s important to note that while no invasive surgery is required, many cosmetic procedures including some of the above have the potential to leave the treated area feeling dry, sore and irritated for some time after the process has been completed. It’s also common to experience redness that can last from a few hours to several weeks after the treatment.

Undergoing a Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatment Safely

When it comes to choosing a procedure of any kind and the appropriate individual to carry it out, there is very much a right way and a wrong way of going about it. What so many fail to understand or realise is that the overwhelming majority of beauty therapists and spa workers are in no way qualified to carry out even the simplest of cosmetic treatments. It’s common to find Botox for example being offered with something of an over-the-counter attitude and applied by those with no formal training.

In order to ensure that the procedure goes to plan and that the products being used are the real deal, it’s crucial to only ever consider clinics and clinicians with the appropriate background and formal certification in the relevant field. Those with the necessary training are always more than delighted to verify as such, so if it seems like the subject is something of a sore point, it’s worth asking yourself why this might be the case.

The Risks of Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatments

It’s something of a no-brainer to state that non-invasive treatments are exponentially safer than their more severe counterparts, but at the same time there isn’t a treatment or form of surgery in the world that can be considered 100% safe for everyone. Each and every human being reacts to substances in a very different way and it is impossible to rule out allergic reactions and adverse side effects – precisely why it’s so crucial to only ever undergo a procedure at the hands of a trained professional, like at Qutis Clinic.
