In a difficult economy, lengthy recovery time after surgical procedures may not be possible for many people. Many people are discovering that non-surgical, less invasive treatments are both economically sound and are turning out similar great results.
Last year, the field of plastic surgery had 5% growth. Minimally invasive procedures increased 6% on their own last year. This was thanks in large part to injectables, such as Botox® and Dysport; which are the number one choice for non-surgical procedures in 2012.
There are many advantages to minimally invasive or non-invasive cosmetic procedures, such as Botox injections, that are enticing to people. Some of the most common advantages are:
- THEY ARE COST EFFECTIVE: Injectable treatments, such as Botox, Dysport, and the facial filler Juvederm, are more affordable than surgery. While they can require annual maintenance, the price of these procedures can often be paid out of pocket with minimal impact to a person’s budget. While the costs are minimal compared to surgery, many people report the results being enduring and nothing short of amazing.
- NO RECOVERY TIME: Non-invasive treatment can often be done during a lunch hour or a day off, allowing for people to get right back to their daily routine. This means there is no time missed from work and no need to rearrange schedules to get the desired results.
- THE GOOD WITHOUT THE BAD: While the best plastic surgeons can minimize both pain and scarring, non-invasive treatments are ideal to get the results a patient is looking for without the worry of either. Essentially, minimally invasive treatments yield results, without some of the drawbacks of a surgery.
Being thrifty doesn’t mean you don’t have to forgo the cosmetic treatment that you have always wanted. There are a variety of techniques to help people achieve their body aesthetic goals that are both cost effective and will have a minimal impact of your daily schedule.
