Society’s Need For Speed Is Elevating NonSurgical Procedures To New Heights

Time is money, and more people are investing their money in less invasive cosmetic surgery procedures. These are commonly referred to as “lunchtime” treatments, that typically range from 15 minutes to an hour. From lip injections and facial fillers to PRP treatments and laser resurfacing, these cosmetic surgery selections allow each person to customize their ideal rejuvenation plan.


And the concept of facial and body rejuvenation has begun to catch the attention of a younger audience. Since the launch of Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook, young men and women have become very aware of their own faces, enhancing their image and age prevention. Young adults as early as 18-20 years old have turned to botox to reduce the impact of expression lines.


Other treatments that are catching people’s attentions this year also include:


  • Nonsurgical butt lifts: Using body-sculpting fillers like macrolane and sculptra, cosmetic surgeons are giving patients a way to lift and generate volume in their derriere without going under the knife! Paired with Radio Frequency treatment to tighten and even skin tone, this procedure is a great way to boost your behind quickly.


  • PRP Treatment: Made popular by Kim K and her “vampire facial”, PRP has evolved in the cosmetic surgery world. Now the procedure is being used to stimulate hair follicles and generate hair regrowth. It is also getting into our pants in order to rejuvenate the vaginal area and increase sexual drive for post-pregnancy and menopausal women.


  • PDO Thread Lift: This trend started in Korea and quickly spread through Asia and Europe. It has now made its way across the shores to the United States. This minimally invasive treatment uses barbed threads to contour and lift the face for a natural-looking face lift. The threads stimulate collagen growth as they naturally dissolve over time.
