People have been looking for the fountain of youth since the beginning of human existence. While a magical pool of youth-bestowing water has never been found, modern technology does offer some impressive benefits.
In the quest for the appearance of youth, lots of people are jumping on the bandwagon. In fact, the occurrence of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in the US has gone up a whopping 200% since 2000!
Do you want to join in on the fun but don’t like the idea of going under the knife? You could opt for one of these non-surgical cosmetic treatments instead.
Botox is a staple in the cosmetic treatments world and has been around for a while. It first came on the scene about 40 years ago as a treatment for strabismus (crossed eyes).
The procedure works by injecting a bit of botulinum toxin into the facial muscles. The toxin effectively relaxes and paralyzes the muscles and smoothes any wrinkles away.
The procedure is quick, painless, and the effects will last a few months.
Are you struggling with a few stubborn extra pounds? What if we told you that you can burn 600 calories in 3 minutes by simply standing in a tank?
You might tell us we’re crazy, but we’re not. Such a treatment does exist!
Cryotherapy involves standing in a tank for just a couple of minutes. The trick is that the temperature in there is super cold — like -90 degrees Celsius cold. You can only survive it because of the unique electrical technology used to create it and the fact that you’re only there for a couple of minutes.
Feeling that cold throws your body into frantic survival mode. It begins burning calories at a fast rate trying to warm you up.
Aside from weight loss, cryotherapy is also effective in treating other problems like insomnia and eczema.
You hear all the time about how vitamins are really good for your skin. Eating a variety of vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables will give you that glowing complexion you so desire.
Let’s take that one step further. If ingesting vitamins is so helpful, why not inject them directly into the skin?
That’s the basic idea behind mesotherapy. Your specialist will whip up the perfect concoction for you of vitamins, amino acids, muscle relaxers, and other ingredients.
You can’t count on this procedure to diminish sunspots or scars, but you can expect a glowing complexion.
4. Cosmetic Dentistry
Your teeth are another important part of your appearance. They often are overlooked when discussing cosmetic procedures to look younger. But yellowed and broken or chipped teeth certainly add a few years to your appearance.
If your pearly whites are anything less than dazzling, you should consider cosmetic dentistry. Professional tooth whitening, veneers, and implants are just a few of the tricks that dentists have up their sleeves to make you look amazing.
