Cosmetics procedures

A cosmetic procedure is a surgery done to improve the look of a certain body part either by making it look more youthful or reshaping it to look more pleasing. Cosmetic procedures are done to make the recipient feel better about how they look. Because these types of surgeries are elective, they are not generally covered by health insurance.

What Types of Cosmetic Procedures are The Most Popular?

The most popular cosmetic procedures tend to be more minor operations that only take up to a few hours to complete. Costs for these surgeries average in the mid to low range of plastic surgery costs. They usually decrease visible signs of aging and improve skin quality.

Cosmetic Botox

Botox has many uses in the medical field, but cosmetically, it is used to stop muscles from moving, so it is effective on areas of the body where there is involuntary movement of the muscles or where muscles cause creases and skin folds commonly identified as age lines and wrinkles. Cosmetic benefits:

  • Gets rid of frown lines on the forehead and between the eyes
  • Gets rid of crows feet
  • Stops facial twitches, such as an eye twitch

Botox can make your face look more youthful and full. It only takes 5 to 15 minutes for an injection, and improvements are noticeable over the next two weeks. Results last for 4 months.

Thread Lift

A thread lift is a facelift without the surgery. Special threads are used under the facial skin to lift and tighten the skin thus eliminating sagging and wrinkles. A thread lift only takes one to two hours, and the result is almost immediate. Little or no anesthesia is needed, so the patient is alert enough to see the procedure and approve each adjustment. Benefits of a threadlift:

  • Gets rid of lines and wrinkles
  • Rejuvenates the skin
  • Increases skin’s elasticity
  • Improves skin tone and quality

Carboxytherapy

This treatment gets rid of discolorations, swelling, bruising and stretchmarks. When these types of blemishes don’t clear up on their own, it is usually due to decreased flow of oxygenated blood in the area. Carboxytherapy refers to a treatment where carbon dioxide is pumped into the targeted area, and the body naturally rushes to get rid of this unnatural presence by significantly increasing oxygenated blood flow to the spot. This pushes the unoxygenated blood to the heart to be oxygenated.

By increasing blood flow to a specific spot, a wide area surrounding the treated area is also affected, and the skin is repaired and rejuvenated getting rid of dark circles under the eyes, stretch marks, bruises and cellulite and fatty areas on the body and face. There are no risks yet associated with this procedure. This treatment has a few extra advantages:

  • Improves circulation
  • Increases collagen production
  • Decreases signs of aging
  • Makes the skin more elastic and supple

Sclerotherapy

This cosmetic treatment obliterates reticular or spider veins. These are veins, which have stopped functioning overtime and blood can no longer flow through. When blood no longer flows freely through these veins, they often bulge and become discolored, usually turning a red or blue shade, so they are not aesthetically pleasing. In addition to being unsightly, these varicose or spider veins can also cause medical and skin issues, which sclerotherapy can treat including:

  • Swelling
  • Blood clots
  • Skin ulcerations

When the chemical used for sclerotherapy is injected into a vein, it eventually causes a blood clot, which stops blood flow. With no blood flowing through a vein, it stops working, and it is reabsorbed thus disappearing completely. A few of this treatment’s many benefits:

  • High success rate
  • Virtually painless
  • Many veins can be done at once
  • There is no downtime
