Non-surgical beauty treatments have become more popular than ever due to new technology, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. While well-known minimally invasive treatments are drastically improving, some new procedures have surfaced in the world of non-surgical cosmetic beauty in 2015 as well.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons states that there were 14.2 million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in 2015. With non-surgical cosmetic treatments on the rise and seriously trending, it’s a no-brainer as to why giving the gift of beauty this holiday season would be a hit.
So, what’s the most popular? What would your bestie want?
Here’s the ultimate guide to gifting someone with a cosmetic non-surgical treatment.
The ASPS has narrowed down an exclusive list of the five most popular treatments from 2015. From most favored to least was Botox, soft tissue fillers, chemical peels, laser hair removal and microdermabrasion.
Let’s delve into the specifics of each of these treatments to find out why and how they would make the perfect gift this holiday season.
Consider treating the stressed-out friend in your life who’s totally starting to freak out about wrinkles to the most popular treatment of them all — Botox. Botox temporarily puts the muscles underneath the facial skin at ease, smoothing out wrinkles with a few injections.
The whole procedure is accomplished within a matter of minutes, and patients begin to see results within three to seven days.
Since non-surgical treatments aren’t everlasting, a return visit to the trained professional for more injections may be in order when wrinkles start to appear again. Keeping wrinkles away will require injections every three to six months. They may be able to be done less often afterwards.
This procedure is FDA-approved to successfully treat problems with excessive sweating as well as migraines.Read more in HER Beauty
