More than 10 million non-invasive treatments are completed each year in the U.S., according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. These treatments have been growing steadily over the last couple of decades. Although the COVID-19 office closures of 2020 caused a 16 percent decrease compared to 2019, there were still over 13 million minimally invasive procedures performed last year. The top treatments included:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic
- Chemical peels
- Laser skin resurfacing
- Soft tissue fillers
Non-invasives continue to be a popular option because of the following benefits:
- No incisions or sutures
- No downtime or recovery period
- Typically no need for strong anesthetics
- Great for many skin types and skin complaints
- Oftentimes a single treatment can address multiple cosmetic complaints
- Often a lower upfront cost compared to surgery
- Convenient, straightforward treatment process
- Can be completed relatively quickly
- Results can be touched up or modified as they fade
To design a plan customized to your goals, Dr. Chalekson will first want to listen to you. You can tell him what areas you are unhappy with and how you would like to see them changed. Non-surgical options address many issues, including wrinkles/creases, scars, sun damage, age spots, unwanted tattoos, spider veins, and more. Many of these treatments can be combined with others to achieve optimal results.
At your consultation, we will discuss not only a recommended treatment plan, but also what you can plan for in terms of the process, cost, financing, aftercare, and follow-up appointments. We want you to feel well-prepared despite the fact that these options are straightforward and convenient. For the most part, you can schedule your appointment and then sit back, relax, and wait for the day to arrive! There’s often not much you need to do to prepare, which is one of the reasons our patients love non-invasives.
