Cosmetic Enhancement Doesn’t Need To Be Expensive
These days, anti-aging cosmetic treatments don’t have to be extremely expensive. They don’t even require several days of recovery anymore. Recent advancements in technology have made procedures once considered elite available to everyone.
The cosmetic industry has evolved to meet the needs of working Americans. There are now a variety of non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can take years off of your appearance without breaking your wallet.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) more than 12 million Americans elected non-surgical cosmetic enhancement just last year – up a whopping 123% from the year 2000. Check out some of the most popular (and affordable) procedures below:
Minimize Fine Lines and Wrinkles – Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport® are two extremely popular injectable treatments that work by relaxing the muscles of the forehead that create frown lines and furrows. The result is a smoother, more toned appearance that lasts for three months or longer. Botox and Dysport injections usually cost around $300*.
Rejuvenate Lost Facial Volume – Injectable facial fillers like Sculptra®, Restylane® and Juvederm® can reduce wrinkles, promote collagen production and plump up volume deficient regions like the cheeks or underneath the eyes. Results usually last six months or longer and treatments run about $500*.
Eliminate Hyperpigmentation, Age Spots and Acne Scars – A chemical peel is a resurfacing tool that can reveal smooth, healthy-looking skin. More than one treatment is typically necessary to achieve desired results. The average cost for a series of treatments is about $650*. A photofacial or BBL ranges from $300-$400 and can erase aprox. 50% of unwanted pigment in just one session.
Plump Thin Lips – Popular dermal fillers like Radiesse®and Restylane® can restore or enhance lip volume. Depending on the filler you choose, results can last for up to three years. Treatments typically cost around $600*.
