AESTHETICS MANAGEMENT WITHOUT SURGERY

In today’s culture, there are very few things more desired and sought after than a youthful appearance. It’s true that getting older brings experience and wisdom. However, it would be nice if it didn’t bring wrinkles and sagging skin too. That’s why so much research has gone towards aesthetics management through non-surgical aesthetics.

The effects of aging appear over the whole body. From the head down to the toes the signs are there. Fortunately, there are many available treatments to improve/remove your aged appearance. Within this article, you can expect to gain a broad overview of aesthetics management. In addition, you will learn specific considerations for women and men, learn potential side effects, and how you can get started on improving your body’s aesthetics when you’re ready.

NOT QUITE UNDER THE KNIFE

Cosmetic surgery exists for a reason. It’s very effective and lasts a long time. In some cases, surgery is unavoidable. For those who have suffered a severe accident or have an advanced condition; cosmetic surgery is your only option.

However, surgery is very invasive. Recent advances in medicine have made it an unnecessary choice in most cases. Aging concerns are largely cosmetic in nature. Some examples would include wrinkles around the eyes or sagging skin in the jawline. Whatever your area of concern, there is a treatment available for you that doesn’t require surgery.

Starting at the Top

The head and face receive the most attention when it comes to reversing the effects of time on the body.

This is for good reason. No other area of the body besides the hands is as visible as your head and face are. That’s why most available treatments are focused on these two areas.

One of the most obvious signs of aging is going bald. For most people, hair on the head is a sign of youth. However, some people choose to be bald. Aging only becomes noticeable when the hairline is receding, thinning, or patchy.

Depending on your personal preference you can opt for either hair restoration or hair removal. Patients who still have most of their hair usually choose hair restoration, while those with significantly less hair choose removal.

Shaping the Body

After the face, the body is the most prevalent concern for patients. As people age, their ability to keep extra weight off and maintain muscle mass becomes harder. This leads to unwanted body fat, looser skin, and other aesthetic concerns.

Don’t Forget the Extremities

AESTHETICS FROM A FEMALE PERSPECTIVE

Leading the charge for visual aesthetic improvements is women. With the rise of minimally invasive procedures, it has never been a better time for women to look into cosmetic improvement. For women, the aging process is dramatic and fast, so retaining a youthful appearance is priority number one. Beyond the appearance of youth, women tend to opt for procedures designed to enhance beauty and smoothness.

Common goals for women include:

  • Looking younger
  • Tighter skin
  • Smooth skin
  • Hairless body
  • Invisible veins
  • Reduced/Removed cellulite

The most popular procedures are:

  • Botox
  • Chemical Peel
  • Dermabrasion
  • Dermal Fillers
  • Restylane
  • Juvederm
  • Voluma
  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Spider Vein Treatment

When you’re ready to explore treatment options it’s best to consult with a provider who specializes in non-surgical aesthetic improvement. The specialist will perform the chosen procedure in a manner that has dramatic visible results while still looking natural.

IMPROVING AESTHETICS FOR THE MODERN MALE

The amount of males undergoing aesthetic improvement has increased by 73% over the last three years. The good news for men is that the signs of aging are more gradual. Silver hair or some wrinkles make a man distinguished or adds character. However, there is a fine line between a weathered ruggedness and drooping eyebrows, thinning hair, and softened jawline among other aging concerns.

That’s why subtlety is the name of the game for men. In general, they have more muscle on their body and face which means features sit differently. Where women may want to soften and smooth their appearance, men want to chisel and optimize what they already have.

Also, there has been a shift since the early 2000s towards male body improvement beyond aging. Due to this, men have taken advantage of aesthetic improvements like:

Hair removal

  • Face
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Torso

Fat removal

  • Body fat increases as men age so to look younger, men have turned to treatments like Sculpsure and truSculpt to remove excess body fat.

Wrinkles

  • Fillers like Botox and Juvederm have been the most popular choices for men.

If you’re thinking about trying to take a couple years off your face and body consider getting a consultation with a provider who specializes in aesthetic improvements for men. A specialist will understand how to balance desired results with the natural canvas of males.
