Cosmetic treatments are incredibly popular in the United States. In the past 20 years alone, numbers of cosmetic surgeries have risen quickly. Here are three non-surgical and two surgical procedures that are the most popular for the face.
By far the most popular cosmetic treatment around the world, Botox is also very popular in the United States where over seven million treatments were given in 2017. Botox is well-loved because it is a temporary treatment perfect for the first signs of aging on the face. By paralyzing the underlying muscles that create expressions, a single Botox treatment can reduce minor lines and wrinkles for three to four months.
Nearly 1.5 million chemical peels are done each year in the U.S. These peels range from mild to deep and work by removing the top layer of skin cells from your face. They work well on fine lines and wrinkles, loss of skin glow, poor skin texture, and hyperpigmentation.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
This procedure uses lasers to heat up the tissues beneath the skin to improve collagen production. This creates a more youthful skin tone while also plumping up the areas within wrinkles. Lasers can also be used to get rid of skin imperfections, such as age spots.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, may not be as popular as noninvasive treatments are. However, it is among the top choices for facial surgeries because it can significantly open the eye area, making you appear more youthful and rested. It can be done on the top or bottom eyelids to remove extra tissues.
The ever-popular facelift is often done as a mini lift these days. This significantly reduces your recovery time while still focusing on the problematic lower half of your face. It is popular because it provides a more permanent result as compared to minimally-invasive procedures.
