3 Non-Surgical Treatments to Revamp Yourself for the New Year

3 non surgical treatments to revamp yourself for the new year

The New Year is a time when most people want to start fresh and work on the resolutions they’ve made. It’s also a great time for a little makeover. That could mean dyeing or cutting your hair or buying a whole new wardrobe. What about slightly more dramatic changes though? You don’t have to do something major like a surgical procedure. Rather, non-surgical treatments can safely and easily transform your appearance.

See what non-surgical treatments can improve your skin and looks below.

Belkyra Injectable

Belkyra Injectable (known as Kybella in the U.S) is a non-surgical procedure that reduces or eliminates fat under a person’s chin. Having a double chin is not always related to weight or lifestyle factors—it’s often hereditary. Even if someone loses a lot of weight, the appearance of a double chin can still persist.

During a Belkyra treatment, an injection grid is applied onto the chin area for accurate and even injections. With the use of a small needle, the liquid is inserted into the fat under the chin. The substance breaks down the fat over a series of treatments. The injections disrupt the cell membrane of the fat cells that cause the double chin. The treatment itself can be completed in minutes and you’ll be out of the office within half an hour.

Soft Tissue Fillers

If the lack of volume in your hands, face or lips is something you’d like to change, then soft tissue fillers may be an ideal option for you. Concerns such as sunken cheeks, thin lips or bony looking hands can be restored through soft tissue fillers. These treatments will add volume and shape to your area of concern. Results vary, but they can last anywhere from one to two years.

Acne and Acne Scar Treatments

No matter how old someone can be, acne and acne scars can still be a pesky problem. People with inflammatory acne are more prone to acne scars. Inflammatory acne is the red, painful and swollen acne that penetrates deep into the skin and causes damage. Picking and squeezing pimples is another cause of acne scarring since it induces inflammation.

Acne scar treatments combine a few technologies to give you clearer and smoother skin. The first step involves the use of intense pulsed light (IPL) to clear the red or brown pigmentation at the base of acne scars. The next step is to tighten the skin with a radiofrequency heating device. Then, new collagen is produced through the help of an RF skin tightening device. After 6 treatments over the course of 6 weeks, patients can see 30-70% improvement in their acne scars.
