Popular Non-Surgical Procedures During the New Year

It’s crucial to discuss non-surgical treatments apart from surgical procedures because they function differently and offer different results. Plastic or cosmetic surgery delivers permanent results with a long recovery. Minimally invasive procedures are quick, convenient, and require little downtime.

With this in mind, it’s a good time of year to consider what’s trending in non-surgical treatments for the new year. Here are Ann Arbor’s most sought-after non-surgical treatments for 2021.

Botox

This injectable treatment has been on the bestseller list for ages, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Botox is a quick and easy treatment that resolves dynamic wrinkles about the eyes, brow, and forehead. Repeated muscle movements like smiling, laughing, or squinting create this category of wrinkles.

Dermal Fillers

Products like Juvéderm and Restylane are effective hyaluronic-acid-based fillers that soften facial lines, creases, and wrinkles. These dermal fillers are optimal treatments to resolve undereye hollows and thin lips.

Chemical Peels

We tailor these popular treatments to each patient’s skin type and desired goals. At Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery, we offer chemical peels that produce exceptional results. Our menu includes deep phenol peels that provide results superior to laser treatments, lighter peels for darker-pigmented skin, and lunchtime peels popular with busy professionals.

IPL Photofacials

As we age, changes to our skin appearance can reveal the unwanted signs of aging. Years of exposure to environmental elements like UV rays and pollution can wreak havoc on our beautiful skin. IPL photofacials are effective in restoring lost elasticity and diminish discoloration and age spots.

Microneedling

This skin care treatment is a groundbreaking process that restores youthful skin on patients by softening the visual impact of marks and flaws on the face and body. Microneedling triggers the natural healing process that continues for months by creating micro-wounds to increase collagen and elastin production.

CoolSculpting

When excess fat creates fat bulges in trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs, and upper arms, CoolSculpting can help. This fat-freezing technology reduces unwanted fat bulges by up to 25% without surgery or invasive treatments. The process is comfortable and convenient, and you can get it done during a break from your busy schedule with no downtime.

Skin Type Solutions®

The Skin Type Solution classification system involves 16 different skin types based on the Bauman System. This approach is the gold standard of skin type analysis used by cosmetic physicians around the world.

It employs a digital skin care analysis to improve your skin health and maximize your skincare regimen. It utilizes four sets of parameters, including oily skin vs. dry skin, sensitive skin vs. resistant skin, pigmented skin vs. non-pigmented skin, and wrinkle-prone skin vs. tight skin.
