Recent Trends in the Minimally Invasive ProceduresJune 01, 2023
The popularity of minimally invasive procedures increased significantly due to the rise of social media platforms. More people are becoming more aware of the results of these treatments, especially for enhancing their appearance.
Today injectable formulas and multifunctional kits have replaced clunky old machines previously used for beauty treatments. In addition, minimally invasive procedures are becoming popular because they are painless treatments that offer immediate results. Most of these results are only possible to achieve with skin care.
Here is a glimpse of some of the most popular types of minimally invasive procedures popular today in the field of cosmetology.
Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are exfoliation procedures for treating various skin conditions. Microdermabrasion involves the mechanical scraping or abrasion of the skin with a handheld motorized device. Aesthetic medicine specialists and certified cosmetologists apply acids directly to the skin for chemical peels.
These beneficial skin treatments destroy the skin partially by rejuvenating it by stimulating the production of new skin cells. They also boost the production of collagen. In addition, removing excess oil, dirt, and debris can result in brighter and smoother skin.
Prior screening of patients’ skin conditions is mandatory before recommending chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are quick ways to get glowing and healthy-looking skin. These options are usually beneficial for people who want to improve the texture and complexion of their skin.
Injectables like dermal fillers and Botox are the most trending minimally invasive beauty procedures. They can refresh the patient’s look without surgical intervention or painful recovery time.
Botox got FDA approval in 1989 for treating eye muscle problems and blepharospasm. This popular procedure temporarily limits facial muscle movements, allowing frown lines and crow’s feet to smooth away.
Botox injections inject a toxin that can prevent a muscle from moving. However, the results are for a limited time. Such shots can smooth wrinkles on the face and are famous for treating several conditions. Apart from cosmetic purposes, Botox is also used to treat common conditions like lazy eye, overactive bladder, sweating, and neck spasms.
Botox is an effective and safe treatment for wrinkles and fine lines, especially around the eye area. However, it also delivers excellent results when applied to the forehead (the space between the eyes).
These injections smooth lines, plump up wrinkles and restore volume to the face. Expert and qualified practitioners inject these fillers under the skin. Many dermal fillers are available to correct the areas around the eyes, nose, and mouth. People love getting derma fillers because they offer immediate results lasting months or years.
The most common candidates for laser treatments include people who want to get rid of their body hair or old tattoos. Thanks to the latest advancements in laser technology, laser treatments are among the safest and most effective minimally invasive procedures.
Laser treatments are a dream-come-true option for people who want to remove unwanted or badly drawn tattoos.
Patients may need to schedule multiple sessions for most laser procedures and avoid sun exposure throughout the treatment. Hence, doctors and cosmetologists recommend getting this treatment when it is most convenient.
Commercially called Kybella, deoxycholic acid is a substance our body naturally produces in the digestive system. This acid supports fat breakdown to help the body digest fat more efficiently.
However, another essential benefit of Deoxycholic acid is its use as an emulsifier in foods. In addition, it is a popular non-surgical option for non-cancerous tumors comprising fat cells.
Medical esthetic practitioners inject Kybella into the patient’s submental area (the chin) to kill fat cells. Hence, the injection successfully reduces the appearance of a double chin. Note that Kybella is FDA-approved only for this part of the body.
Administering Kybella injection typically takes around twenty minutes. However, patients are happy to see quick results within six to eight weeks after the procedure. The best part about this procedure is that the results are permanent. But some people may notice a bit of fat returning if they gain substantial weight.
The procedure does not require providing anesthesia to the patient and takes not more than half an hour to administer. However, the exact duration can depend on the number of veins you have to treat and the size of the area.
In cosmetic sclerotherapy, a doctor, such as a trained physician, esthetician, or interventional radiologist, injects a sclerosant into the spider veins. Hence, they seal shut and impede blood flow to those veins. Depending on its size, we may need to inject a single vein more than once. During a single treatment session, you may need to inject multiple veins.
