Non-Invasive Techniques: What You Need to Know

An attractive man with wavy full hair smiles widely while seated outside with a v-neck sweater on Non-invasive MedSpa treatments offer great results with little to no downtime and a relatively low cost, in comparison to most cosmetic surgeries. Nonetheless, these treatments require the care and expertise of an experienced aesthetic provider, at a board-certified plastic surgery practice. There may be no incisions involved, but these treatments impact your skin, body, and face, so you want to make sure you are putting your trust in a skilled provider.

If you are interested in a non-invasive procedure, here are some things you should know:

Temporary Results: 

From dermal fillers to HydraFacial, non-invasive techniques provide temporary results. Some results may last years before a touch up is necessary, but depending on the results you are looking for, you may be able to treat the area sooner.

While surgery has long lasting results, the majority of people who opt for non-invasive tecniques are satisfied with the quality and convenience of these treatments. Non-invasive techniques also provide the patient with flexability, as you are able to “update” your results or let them fade and try something new!

Minimal Downtime:

Non-invasice treatments allow you to get back to your activities rather quickly, sometimes even the same day! In fact, treatments like CoolSculpting and Ultherapy allow you to get back to exercise or work immediately!

That being said, you should be prepared for some temporary side effects, such as redness, swelling, and bruising, depending on the treatment provided. Your provider will make sure to let you know what to expect, but don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have!

Yes, you still need a consultation:

Although non-surgical, these services still require a conversation with your provider to determine if you are a candidate or not for the procedure. During this visit, your provider will evaluate your skin and address your concerns, and may provide a complimentary VISIA Skin Analysis. The VISIA machine uses advanced technology to provide a quantitative analysis of your skins and allows us to re-scan your skin and track the progress over time.
