Plastic surgery centres were once known for only performing facial cosmetic surgery, but clinics like Dr. Cory Torgerson’s in Toronto now offer many non-invasive, non-surgical rejuvenation treatments as well. These procedures are gaining popularity, as men and women of all ages are taking advantage of them to help them age as gracefully as possible.
Neurotoxin injections, which smooth out the skin and reduce fine lines, have been the forerunner in non-invasive treatments for many years. Simple and easy neurotoxin treatments are completed in less than 10 minutes, and the results last 3 to 4 months. Dermal fillers are also dominating the non-surgical cosmetic world, especially with the rise in popularity of lip augmentation. The quality of the dermal filler products, their longevity, and the remarkable results they can achieve are just some of the reasons why fillers are top on the list.
Also rising in popularity over the past 10 years are non-invasive laser treatments. There has been a huge increase in the number of people requesting resurfacing laser treatments to transform their dull, lifeless skin into a glowing complexion.
Why Do People Choose Non-Invasive Treatments?
The number one reason why people choose these non-invasive methods is because of their cost-effectiveness. Non-surgical treatments usually cost hundreds of dollars, rather than the thousands of dollars necessary for cosmetic surgery. As technology advances, treatments are more accessible and more easily administered, with little to no downtime.
This shorter recovery time is the second reason why people choose non-invasive treatments. There are little or no side effects with many facial cosmetic procedures. Some people would rather spend their vacation time lying on the beach rather than convalescing from surgery. We live in a fast-paced society, and convenience is very attractive to a busy person. It is possible and very easy to receive neurotoxin, injectable fillers, or a laser treatment during one’s lunch hour. You can’t get much more convenient than that!
Fear of surgery also causes some people to choose non-invasive facial treatments. Previous bad experiences with hospitals, anaesthetic, or surgeons are not easily forgotten, and people feel that non-invasive procedures will be less painful than surgery. This can be alleviated by choosing a proficient facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Cory Torgerson, who will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during any treatment, whether it is surgical or non-surgical.
Some shy away from surgery, as they feel the results are long lasting and there is a less of a risk if they choose neurotoxin or injectable fillers. This fear can also be eliminated by choosing an experienced facial cosmetic surgeon who takes the time to understand exactly what goals you would like to achieve. Even with non-surgical cosmetic treatments, choosing a reputable establishment for your treatments is of paramount importance.
Why Does Dr. Torgerson Recommend Non-Invasive Treatment?
Dr. Torgerson would be the first to agree that non-invasive treatments can produce incredible results for many people. The extent to which these procedures have improved appearances is immense, but in some cases, surgery remains the only option. Some people’s expectations and goals can be achieved only with the more invasive method of “going under the knife”. This depends on a lot of factors, but if the patient has not maintained their appearance over the years and suddenly expects that some neurotoxin and injectable filler will produce an instant facelift, they will only be spending money that would be better used towards a more desirable option.
Although there is more cost involved, more downtime necessary to heal, and perhaps more inconvenience, facial plastic surgery remains the gold standard by which to achieve the most transformation in a person’s appearance. However, if convenience, cost, and great, temporary results are fantastic motivators for you to take the next step, then non-surgical procedures are likely a wonderful fit for your cosmetic treatment plans!
