There seems to be no end to the number of products on the market today that claim they can make us more aesthetically pleasing. While skin creams and over-the-counter beauty products have generally been put into the category of prevention, there are a plethora of actual cosmetic treatments that can produce dramatic skin rejuvenation results without surgery.

With the many advancements that have come over the last few years, cosmetic procedures are now being delivered through technologies that range from laser and light to acids and biological neuromodulators. 

As impressive as this is, the sheer number of these treatments leave many people who seek cosmetic improvements wondering where to start.

The Top of the List

Some of the reasons women and men may want to enhance their facial skin and features include the following:

  • To correct minor flaws like acne or scarring
  • To diminish wrinkles and lines
  • To reduce discoloration
  • To tighten skin
  • To recontour the neckline

All of the above can help boost self-esteem and restore more youthful and healthy-looking contours. 

To help you wade through the many options you have, we’ve listed some of our top treatments to investigate first. 

The following five non-surgical procedures are some of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today and can help you face the future with increased confidence.

  1. BOTOX® Cosmetic 

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuromodulator derived from botulinum toxin type A and can be injected into the facial muscles to block signals from instructing the muscles to contract. 

This action relaxes the muscles and prevents expression-causing (dynamic) lines and wrinkles from forming. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an excellent choice to treat expression-causing fine lines and wrinkles in these areas:

  • Forehead
  • Brows
  • Corner’s of the eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Around the mouth

  1. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Fillers

JUVÉDERM® is a  line of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that help treat superficial and deep lines or add volume to hollows that form under the cheeks or around the eyes. 

The difference between each JUVÉDERM® product is the thickness of the hyaluronic acid gel used. Certain products are more appropriate for specific areas of concern.

While BOTOX® Cosmetic treats dynamic lines caused by muscle contractions, JUVÉDERM® products treat static lines that appear due to sun damage, gravity, and age. They can also be used for lip and cheek augmentation.

  1. KYBELLA® Double Chin Treatment

KYBELLA® is the first FDA-approved treatment to use an injectable solution (deoxycholic acid) to eliminate stubborn submental fat (the fat that sits underneath your chin and along your jawline). 

Unlike surgical methods of chin fat reduction, KYBELLA® requires no incisions or liposuction, and most patients return to their daily routine with little or no downtime.

The deoxycholic acid in KYBELLA® liquefies and then eliminates the troublesome submental fat cells. 

 Multiple injections are often required for optimal results.

  1. Laser Skin Resurfacing 

Laser skin resurfacing can address lines, wrinkles, uneven skin, enlarged pores, sun damage, discoloration, scars, acne, and unwanted hair. 

Some of the different laser technologies include:

  1. Microneedling

Microneedling (collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive skin treatment that can improve overall skin health by promoting collagen growth.
